What are the signs you have a blocked drain?
Blocked drains are both inconvenient and can cause serious damage to your drains if the problem isn’t fixed as soon as possible. A few key signs that your drains are blocked include:
- Water isn’t draining away, or it’s draining away very slowly
- Your drains gurgle
- Your toilets are backing up
- You can smell a strong, unpleasant odour coming from your drains
If you notice any of these signs, contact us at Atkin Plumbing & Gasfitting for fast and effective drain unblocking
How long do hot water systems last?
In general, hot water systems last between 8-12 years. However, they can last for longer depending on their usage rates and how well they’ve been taken care of over their lifetime. If your hot water system is leaking or failing to supply hot water consistently even after maintenance, it may be time to replace it.
How do you know if you’ve got a leak on your property?
If you’ve found that your water bill is higher than usual or your water pressure isn’t as strong as usual it may be a sign that you have a water leak. If you think you’ve got a leak, there are a few signs to check for including:
- Dripping taps or sinks
- Discoloured cupboards, bench tops or walls
- Your toilet or cistern is continuously running
- Wet patches in your yard
- Water pooling around appliances in you bathroom, kitchen or laundry
Why do my drains smell bad?
Smelly drains are caused by a number of plumbing issues, including:
- A build-up of food, debris, grease, oil, or hair.
- Blockages caused by wet wipes.
- Garbage disposal problems.
- Failure to clean your dishwasher regularly.
If you cannot identify or adequately address the source of the odour, get in touch with our team today.
Why is my water bill abnormally high?
If your water bill has shot up for no apparent reason, there may be a leak somewhere in your plumbing system. Fortunately, our licensed plumbers are on hand to quickly identify invisible leaks or burst pipes.
Why don’t I have enough hot water?
If you’ve been enduring cold showers despite no change in your hot water consumption habits, your thermostat or water heater may be faulty. To fix the issue, get in touch with one of our plumbers as soon as possible.
Why does my drain keep getting blocked?
Most drains get blocked from time to time. If conventional drain clearing methods fail to work or your drain is getting blocked on a regular basis, however, it’s time to call in the experts. Persistent blockages may indicate a serious issue such as overgrown tree roots obstructing your underground pipes.
What is backflow testing?
Have you received a letter from your local authorities ordering that you book a backflow test? You’re not alone. It is common for local authorities throughout Australia to ask residents to test their backflow valves. This ensures that the freshwater supply remains clean and fresh. Fortunately, our certified plumbers are on-hand to conduct quick and easy backflow tests if necessary.
Why does water continue to run in my toilet?
If your toilet keeps running, the flush valve may be faulty. Drop us a line and one of our plumbers will fix or replace your valve.
How often should I get my hot water system serviced?
Most hot water units last for around a decade, although some may boast a lifespan of up to 20 years. However, to ensure your system reaches its life expectancy, it must be serviced regularly. Remember to check the relief every three months or so and call a plumber to replace the valve every five years.
My house is quickly flooding due to a leak. What should I do?
Major leaks can wreak havoc in the home, causing significant water damage and mould. As soon as you notice a leak, it is vital that you stem your water supply at the source by turning your shut-off valve. If you’re unsure where this is located, you should be able to find it on an interior wall facing the street or in your basement.
Once you have stopped the flow of water, call us immediately. We will help to fix the leak and prevent further damage. Please also note that you should not touch any electrical fittings in the flooded area of the house. Instead, wait until the issue has been resolved and, if necessary, call an electrician.
