On Call Plumbers FAQ

Help, I have a plumbing emergency!

What do you do when a plumbing disaster arises? The very first thing is to ensure it's safe, and not getting worse. Electricity and water don't combine safely, so if needed turn the power off at the power box.

If water is still leaking, turn off the water at the nearest service valve or at the mains tap outside. If you cannot locate the water main isolation valve or a tap to the fixture, then turn on the cold taps inside and out to depressurise the pipework and reduce the leak.

Once that is sorted, give us a call, no matter what the day or time is. We’ll be with you promptly to fix the leak.

While you are waiting, clear away any significant items close to the leak, and clean up any water or position a bucket to catch the drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the heating for the hot water as well.

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

You might have been shown it as a stopcock, isolating valve or toby. This is normally located on the property perimeter close to the road, usually under a blue or black plastic cover.

The toilet has its own tap alongside the toilet.

Can I unclog the drain myself?

If you've got a plunger, it's worth trying to remove a clog yourself. We suggest using a plunger that has a long handle, particularly for the toilet, so you can stand out of the splash zone. Chemicals are not suggested as they rarely do a good job and can cause damage to your pipes.

Burst Pipes Fixed In No Time

From the small clean water pipes in your floor, walls and ceilings, to the large sewage pipes in the ground, most of the pipes in your home are concealed away out of sight and out of mind. We never even remember them until there is an issue.

Most of the time we never even think of them. Not until thre is a problem, and all of a sudden we’re standing in a pool of water, or even worse, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be resolved immediately, to minimise damage to your residence, possessions and well-being.

Our on call plumbers are prepared to be there quickly, so call us as soon as you find a burst pipe or leak of any type. You can reduce further damage by turning the water to the house off at the mains tap if required.

How did the pipe burst?

Pipes and taps can deteriorate for various reasons. They may simply be past their prime and deteriorated. Or they may have frozen in extremely frigid weather and ruptured. Tree roots might have invaded underground connections. Or there may be a problem with how the pipes were installed in the first place.

Once they arrive, our 24 hour plumber will identify the problem and promptly repair the leak or burst pipe. They can also assess the rest of your pipes if needed to look for other damage.

We Have You Covered

Tapware Issues Fixed

Do you have a tap that won’t turn on or off, drips, leaks into the cupboards, or is altogether defective?

We have been called to all sorts of tap problems over the years, and know that even a small drip can sound like elephants tapdancing in the small hours when the rest of the world is asleep. What was a inconsequential annoyance, can suddenly become a dire plumbing emergency.

Not only is the sound frustrating, but a dripping or leaking faucet can send your bills into orbit, especially if it is the hot tap. Do not waste money and possibly cause long term damage to your house, give us a ring.

Whether you just need a washer, or a whole new tap, our same day plumbers have the parts that you require. All our vans are fully stocked with parts and carry a modest choice of new taps and faucets to select from if desired. If we don’t have the faucet you want, our plumber can install a temporary faucet until we find what you want.

From on call plumbing to general maintenance, there is no job too large or small for our Shortland plumbers. Not only can we fix the leaking taps, the team also offer a wide range of additional plumbing services.

The drips are keeping me up at night, how can I temporarily stop them to get some peace and quiet?

Find a length of string of some kind, and knot it onto the faucet spout so that it hangs down to the bottom of the skink or basin. The drips will run along the string and trickle off quietly.
