During business hours, plumbing business are open. However, we know not all plumbing issues occur in these hours, and there will be times when we need to call an emergency plumber in Sydney, like APT plumbing. They perform all the plumbing services to the Sydney area 24/7, all year round.

Water Leakages

Water leaks are not always an urgent matter; however, you should contact a water leak inspection company immediately if you notice a leak. Leakages can put pressure on the structure of your home if left unattended to. Some leaks can go unnoticed, and you may not actually see them until they have caused significant damage.

Clogged Drains

Clogging is often unavoidable in all homes, but you should try and avoid this. There are simple tips to evade clogging, forget about pouring fats and oils down the sink they build up over time. Paper towels and wipes go in the bin not down the toilet and use sink strainers to catch hair and food particles in sinks. Sometimes even by following all this you can still have clogged drains as tree roots can enter pipes through cracks and cause blockages. These blockages are harder to detect and require a plumber to use a camera to pick up exactly where the issue is.

Burst Pipes

Burst pipes are an emergency and a common occurrence in winter when the inside of the pipe expands and cracks with the heat from the hot water. In some cases, however there are other factors, such as aging of pipes and pipes made from certain materials that can cause a pipe to burst. A broken pipe will require you to call a local plumber in Sydney, like APT Plumbing who are on call 24/7 for times like this when timing is out of your control. Cracked pipes caused by tree roots cannot be detected early and can cause significant damage depending on how long in time the pipe has been broken and leaking for.

If you notice damp spots, you should call a plumber immediately as it can also create wet spots in the walls creating mould and mildew or a massive unplanned increase in your water bill!

Water Heater Issues

Most homeowners look for water heater repairs as they believe their water is not at the right temperature. Some water heater issues may require urgent, immediate attention. Odd noises and visible leaks need to be addressed immediately, for if left too long could pose a serious issue. A leaking heater may just be a easy, quick repair, but leaks can be a bigger problem. Corrosion or damaged heating elements and calves can also cause leaks. In rare cases, a leaking water heater may indicate water pressure that builds up inside the tank, eventually leading to an explosion.

Sewer Backup

It’s not only disgusting and smelly when the sewer backs up in your home, but it is also dangerous. When your sewer backs up, the waste you have washed away rushes back up the pipe and back into your home. Sewerage backs up and releases contaminants into the air. This can lead to household illness with symptoms such as vomiting, fevers and gastro. Clogged sewers need immediate attention to stop the issue from worsening and allow the homeowner to begin the clean-up of the mess that has been caused.
