Are You Suffering From Any Plumbing Emergencies in Bribie Island?


What Are Some Common Plumbing Emergencies?


Typical plumbing problems vary in size and scale and can include the following:


Leaky taps

While a leaking tap may only seem like a minor annoyance, a tap that’s dripping even twice a second can lead to 25 litres of wasted water in a day. When taking into account the number of leaking taps in Bribie Island at any given time, tap leaks are more than just an annoyance: they are an environmental issue that should be dealt with as soon as possible.


Don’t attempt to fix leaky taps by yourself. Overtightening your washers can cause cracks and lead to the whole system needing replacement


Blocked toilet

Often a result of flushing an unwanted object, blocked toilets are normally preventable. Too much toilet paper, childrens toys and sanitary products are the main causes of blocked toilets. A blocked toilet cannot repair itself and will eventually flood if left left unattended.


Never flush any items apart from toilet paper and waste. If you notice signs of a blocked toilet, deal with them straight away to avoid further damage or flooding.


Blocked drains

Blocked drains are a common plumbing issue that is easy to identify but difficult to fix. Food waste and hair can easily cause stubborn blockages in your kitchen or bathroom. If treated incorrectly, a blocked drain can burst and cause major damage to your home.


If drain cleaning products fail to clear your blockage, always contact a plumber. Mixing drain cleaning chemicals is extremely hazardous to your health.


Burst pipes

Burst pipes are one of the most common plumbing problems. Often, they occur unexpectedly and can cause horrific damage to your home. Burst pipes are often caused by wear-and-tear, rust, tree roots or faulty installation.


Diagnose potential burst pipes by keeping an eye out for excess water near ceilings, walls, carpets and in gardens.


Drop in water pressure

A decrease in water pressure is one of the most common plumbing issues. Usually, water pressure issues are caused by corrosion or buildup of debris and sediment in pipes.


If possible, use a tooth brush to scrub away any traces of sediment around the tap. If this fails, contact a plumber right away.
