Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

FAQ - On Call Plumber

I have a plumbing emergency, what should I do?

What do you do when a plumbing calamity arises? The very first thing is to make sure it's safe, and not getting worse. Electricity and water do not combine safely, so if needed turn the mains switch off on the breaker box.

If water is still leaking, turn off the water at the nearest access point or at the mains tap outside. If you can’t find the water main isolation valve or a tap to the appliance, then turn on the cold taps inside and out to help depressurise the system and reduce the leak.

Once you have stopped the diaster from getting worse, give our emergency plumber a call, any hour of the day or night. We’ll be there quickly to solve the problem.

While you are waiting for the plumber to arrive, clear away any significant items from the area, and mop up any water or place a container to catch any drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the hot water heating as well.

Help, I don’t know where the main water valve is!

The primary shutoff valve will be on the border of your property close to the road. It is typically set into the ground underneath a blue or black plastic cover.

It is also known as an isolating valve, toby or stopcock.

Blocked Drains Hassles

When your pipes are overflowing, you need assistance quickly. Our on call Freshwater plumbers know how disheartening and damaging obstructed pipes can be, and they are ready to get them unobstructed again.

A obstructed pipe is a major predicament, especially if it involves sewage. If you’re lucky, you can unclog it with a plunger. However if you can’t, you need help quickly. Let’s face it, a clogged or overflowing toilet or sewer is something none of us ever wish to see, or smell!

Whether it is the kitchen sink that will not clear, or a blockage in the shower, or worse yet, sewage flowing down the hall or across your yard, our emergency Freshwater plumbers will quickly locate the issue and fix it so that life can get back to normal.

Our vans are well equipped, so we can usually fix everything right then and there. In the rare case that we can’t, we’ll temporarily resolve the complication to minimise further damage and return with what is needed as soon as possible.

I have a plunger, can I unclog it myself?

If you have a plunger, it is a good idea to try to unblock the blockage yourself. We recommend a plunger that has a long handle, especially for the toilet, so you can stay out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not recommended as they rarely do a good job and can cause damage to your drains.

Don’t let a obstructed drain send your day down the tubes. Call us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water Tank Not Working

We usually take our hot water for granted, until it is not functioning correctly. Need to put muddy kids in the shower? Need a good soak to defrost following a wintery day? Have a sink-full of of dishes to finish up? It’s a pain to have a proper wash when the water is not hot.

When your hot water has fallen short, give us a ring. Our plumbers will be there quickly to figure out the problem and get it fixed. From heating elements to faulty thermostats to leaking cylinders, we can repair them and get your life back to normal.

Leaks in the hot water system can cost a vast amount, and can cause serious damage to your house. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for around 30% of the average home’s power bill, so a leak can cause serious damage to your wallet very swiftly.

When you find the water is too cold or hot, or there is a leak in the hot water system, call our Freshwater on call plumbers immediately. We will get your hot water working again quickly. If you find a lot of water leaking, turn the water off at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the cylinder is not fixable, our professional plumbers can help pick the most suitable solution for your household needs, budget and area. If your whole system is old and worn out, we can arrange for improvements at a time that works for you as well.

Burst Pipes Solved Quick

From the little fresh water pipes in the floor, walls and ceilings, to the big sewage pipes underground, most of the pipes in your residence are concealed away out of sight and out of mind. We don’t even remember them until there’s an issue.

Often, you do not even recall their existence unless something goes wrong. But when a leak is destroying the walls, it’s usually a serious problem that needs to be sorted urgently before your house, your belongings or even your health are damaged or ruined.

As soon as you discover a leak or burst pipe, get hold of our on call plumbers immediately. Our team are waiting to help Freshwater residents right now. Whilst waiting for our plumber to get there, it could be useful to turn off the water to the house.

Why did the pipe burst?

Pipes can fail and start to leak for many reasons. If you live in an older residence, they may simply be aged and dilapidated. If you live in a very cold region, the pipework may have frozen and cracked. In a new house, there may be an issue with how they were installed. Subterranean connections may have been grown into by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

Once they are at your home, our after hours plumber will locate the problem and rapidly repair the leak or burst pipe. They can also check out the rest of your pipes if required to look for other damage.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you live with a faucet that will not turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cupboards, or is simply broken?

We have been called to a range of faucet issues over the years, and we understand that even a little drip can sound like a woodpecker in the small hours when the rest of the world is quiet. What was a trivial irritant, can suddenly become a drastic plumbing emergency.

As well as keeping the whole house awake, a leaking tap can put a big hole in your budget as well, especially if it’s hot water. Do not let the bills increase even further, or possibly cause damage to your residence, get hold of our urgent plumber right away.

From replacement washers to completely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers have everything they need in the vans to fix that leak. Our plumbers carry a modest selection of basin and sink faucets to choose from if you need a new one, or can put in a temporary one if needed.

As well as serving Freshwater with on call plumbing of all types, we are available for general maintenance and installation work. Night or day, no job is too extensive or small.

How can I stop the dripping sound temporarily so I can get some rest?

If it is not aggravating enough to warrant repairing right now, you can place a folded tea towel or sponge beneath it to dampen the noise. Or tie a length of string around the tap spout long enough to rest on the base of the basin, so that the drip slides down instead of falling.
