Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

FAQ Urgent Plumbers

What do I do when a plumbing calamity hits?

What should you do when you find a plumbing disaster? Safety first! If you find water anywhere close to electrical outlets or appliances, the very first thing is to turn off the electricity at the switchboard. Then, try to minimise any further leaking or flooding.

If there is still water leaking, turn off the tap to the appliance or fixture if you can, or go immediately to the main water shutoff valve for your property. If you are unable to find the main valve to turn off, then you may want to try turning on all the cold taps inside and outside the house to depressurise the system and minimise the leak.

Once that is done, give us a call, no matter what the day or time is. We will be there promptly to fix the leak.

While waiting for our emergency plumber to arrive, clear away any significant items, clean up any water, and put a container to catch drips. You also should turn off the hot water heating if the main water is turned off.

I don’t know where the main water tap is!

The main shutoff valve is generally located on the property perimeter close to the road, typically under a blue or black plastic cover. You may know it as the water toby, stopcock or isolated valve. Turning this off can protect your house from further leaks or damage to the hot water cylinder.

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

Blocked Drains Issues

Our Cairns on call plumbers know that a clogged pipe can be a serious health risk that needs fixing right away. That is why we offer our urgent plumbing service.

Obestructed drains can be a major health risk, especially when sewage is involved. Sometimes you can fix it yourself with a plunger and some know-how. If you don’t have a plunger though, our emergency plumbers can arrive quickly to get the pipes unblocked.

Whether it is the ensuite sink that will not drain, or a blockage in the shower, or worst of all, sewage running down the hall or across the yard, our on call Cairns plumbers will quickly locate the obstruction and fix it so that life can get back to normal.

With our well equipped vans, we have all we need available to repair almost all drain obstructions right then and there. If there is an underlying problem that requires extra equipment or parts, we can usually put a temporary solution in place to get you through until the final repairs are finished.

Can I unblock the drain myself?

If you have a plunger, it is worth trying to clear the clog yourself. We suggest a plunger that has a long handle, particularly for the toilet, so you can stay back out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not recommended as they rarely do a good job and can damage your pipes.

Don’t let a blocked pipe ruin your day. Call us and our emergency plumber will have everything flowing smoothly in no time.

Don't Go Without Hot Water

Hot Water System Not Working

We often do not think about how heavily you count on easy quick hot water until it isn’t available any longer. Just finished up in the garage and really want a shower? Need to take care of a few dishes? The last thing you want is to turn on the water and discover it’s barely warm.

When the hot water has let you down, give our plumbers a call. Our plumbers will be there quickly to figure out the problem and get it fixed. From heating elements to faulty thermostats to leaking cylinders, our plumbers can sort them out and get your life back to normal.

Leaks in your hot water system can cost a vast amount, and can cause serious damage to your property. If you have an electric cylinder, hot water heating can account for about thiry percent of the average household’s electricity bill, so a leak can cause serious harm to your pocket very swiftly.

If you find the water is too cold or hot, or there’s a leak in the hot water system, ring our Cairns urgent plumbers straight away. We will get the hot water working again quickly. If there is a large amount of water leaking, turn off the water at the mains tap, and also turn off the heating element, until our plumbers arrive.

If the cylinder isn’t able to be fixed, our friendly plumbers can help pick the most suitable solution for your household requirements, budget and area. If your whole system is tired and worn out, we can organise repairs at a time that suits you as well.

Urgent Plumbers Standing By

Burst Pipes Sorted Fast

From the little clean water pipes in your floor, walls and roof, to the big sewage pipes in the garden, most of the pipes in your home are hidden away out of sight and out of mind. We don’t even think of them until there’s an issue.

Once there is an issue though, it’s the most imperative thought in your mind. A leak or burst pipe can be serious stuff, and you want it resolved asap to prevent damage to your home, your contents and even your well-being.

When you identify a leak or burst pipe, get hold of our urgent plumbers right away. We are waiting to help Cairns residents right away. Whilst waiting for us to arrive, it could help to turn off the water to the home.

How did my pipe burst?

Pipes can deteriorate and start to leak for a range of reasons. If you own an older residence, they may simply be aged and past their use-by. If you live in a very cold region, the pipework may have frozen and split. In a new home, there may be a problem with how the pipes were installed. Underground joins might have been invaded by tree roots trying to get to water and nutrients.

Our emergency plumbers will identify and fix your damaged pipes or leaks expeitiously and professionally.

From Tap Washers to Full Replacements

Tap Leaks Solved

Do you own a faucet that will not turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cabinets, or is altogether broken?

Many clients over the years have told us how frustrating it can be to live with a dripping or busted tap. You may not even be aware of the drip during the day, but in the small hours when it is reverberating throughout the house like someone practicing the drums, all of a sudden it is a major problem.

It isn’t just irritating drips though. Leaks may push up your water bill, and also your power bill if it’s the hot water. And, if water is getting down into the cabinetry or onto the floor and causing damage, that little tap leak can end up putting a huge dent in your wallet.

Whether you just want a washer, or a whole new faucet, our emergency plumbers have the parts that you need. All our vehicles are fully stocked with parts and carry a modest choice of replacement taps and faucets for you to select from if required. If we do not have what you require, we can put in an interim faucet until we track down what you want.

From urgent plumbing to non-urgent maintenance, there is no job too great or minor for our Cairns plumbers. Not only can we repair the leaking taps, we can also offer a broad selection of additional plumbing services.

How can I stop the dripping noise temporarily so I can get some sleep?

If it is not bad enough to need fixing right this moment, you can try putting a folded cloth or sponge underneath it to minimise the racket. Or knot a piece of twine around the faucet spout sufficient to touch the bottom of the sink, so that the drip runs down instead of falling.
