Frequently Asked Questions - What To Do

Urgent Plumbers FAQ

Help, I’ve got a plumbing emergency!

What do you do when a plumbing emergency arises? The very first thing is to make sure it is safe, and hopefully not getting even worse. Electricity and water don't play well together safely, so if you need to, turn the electricity off on the power panel.

If water is leaking, turn the water off at the nearest access point and then at the mains valve outside. If you cannot find the main valve or a tap to the appliance, then turn on all the cold faucets inside and out to help depressurise the system and reduce the leak.

Once that’s done, give our plumber a ring, whatever the day or time is. We will be there shortly to get things sorted.

While waiting, remove any important items from the area, and mop up any water or put a container to catch the drips. If you have turned the mains water off, also switch off the hot water heating as well.

Help! How do I turn off the water!

The primary isolating valve will generally be on the boundary of the property close to the road. It is usually set in the ground underneath a blue or black cover.

Remember, a lot of appliances and fixtures have their own isolating valves also.

Blocked Drains Hassles

We know a blocked drain can be a serious emergency. Whether it’s the kitchen sink, the toilet, or the gully trap outside your home, a clogged pipe is never a good thing. That is why our crew of urgent plumbers are ready to deal with your plumbing emergency.

Clogged pipes can cause damage to your residence, or create a health hazard very quickly. Sometimes, you may be able to clear the clog yourself with a plunger. If that isn’t possible however, you need a plumber there rapidly to clear the blockage so life can get back to normal.

Our vans are well equipped to deal with any drain problem. Whether it’s a item blocking the toilet, or a clog in the shower, or something has gone terribly wrong with the sewage pipes, our on call plumbers will get things flowing again.

Our vans are well equipped, so we can normally fix everything right then and there. In the rare case that we can’t, we will temporarily resolve the complication to prevent further damage and return with what is required as soon as we can.

I have a plunger, can I unclog it myself?

If you have a plunger you can try to clear the blockage in your sink, shower or toilet. If it won't clear, please do not use chemicals as they seldom do the job properly and the chemicals can ruin the pipes.

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

Don't Get Caught Without Hot Water

Hot Water System Problems

We usually do not realise how heavily you rely on easy fast hot water until it is not there anymore. Just finished in the garden and really need a wash? Time to take care of some dishes? The last thing you want is to turn on the water and find it’s cold.

When the hot water isn’t hot enough, you want it to be working again as soon as possible. From blown elements, to defective thermostats, to leaking cylinders, we’ve seen everything and can rapidly diagnose the problem and get it fixed.

Hot water leaks can quickly push the electricity bill through the roof. Leaks hiding in the back of the hot water cupboard can create significant damage to your cabinetry. If you don’t get it sorted speedily, the cost will become more expensive by the hour.

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

If your cylinder is not able to be fixed, our friendly team can help pick the most suitable solution for your household needs, budget and area. If the whole system is past it’s use by date and deteriorating, our plumbers can organise upgrades at a time that suits you as well.

Burst Pipes Solved In No Time

The pipes in your residence are a normally unseen but indispensible part of everyday life. Big or little, in the ground, within the wall or the roof or under the floor, they carry fresh water to your home and take the used stuff away.

Most of the time you never even think of them. Not until thre is a problem, and suddenly we’re standing in a damp patch, or worse yet, sewage. And now it urgently needs to be fixed immediately, to prevent damage to your home, furnishings and health.

As soon as you locate a leak or burst pipe, phone our urgent plumbers right away. We are waiting to assist Shortland residents right away. Whilst waiting for us to get there, it may be useful to turn off the water to the property.

How did my pipe fail?

Pipes and taps can break down for a variety of reasons. The pipes may simply be past their prime and deteriorated. Or they could have iced up in extremely wintery weather and cracked. Tree roots could have invaded subterranean joints. Or there may be an issue with how the pipes were set up in the first place.

When our emergency plumber arrives, they will locate the problems and repair them in a quick and expert manner.

We Have You Covered

Taps Dripping Or Leaking?

Do you live with a irksome tap? A faucet that will not turn on or off properly, drips, or is just straight up defective?

We have been called to all sorts of tap issues over the years, and know that even a minor drip can sound like someone practising the kettle drums at night when the rest of the world is quiet. What was a trivial niggle, can all of a sudden be a major plumbing emergency.

Not only is the sound vexing, but a dripping or leaking faucet can send the bills into orbit, especially if it’s the hot water. Don’t waste money and potentially cause long term damage to your residence, call us now.

From replacement washers to completely new faucets and taps, our on call plumbers carry everything they might need on hand to remedy your leak. We carry a small selection of basin and sink faucets to pick from if you require a new one, or can put in a temporary one if needed.

As well as serving Shortland with urgent plumbing of all types, our plumbers are available for day to day maintenance and installation work. 24/7, no job is too big or little.

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

Normally, a dripping faucet is caused by a worn out or flawed washer, seal or ceramic cartridge. Depending on the style of tap, we can usually replace worn out parts immediately for a very reasonable expenditure.
