Plumbing Advice By Mr Plumber Sydney

Posted by on October 28, 2019

When your home’s plumbing system is working, as it should, you don’t even have to think about it. But once trouble knocks at your door, you’re often at the mercy of your local plumber and their professional expertise.

When in doubt call a plumber Sydney

Whether it’s a clogged drain, a burst pipe or hot water system issues, no plumbing problem is easy to fix. Often, a homeowner can actually cause more problems by trying to fix a leak or unclog a blocked drain. We spoke with a plumber Sydney to find out what plumbers really want us to know.

Plumber Sydney Helpful tips

Be careful with oil & grease

Some of the most common plumbing problems we come across have to do with homeowners pouring and dumping things down their kitchen sink. Cooking oil and grease should never be flushed down the drain, because they can congeal and cause blockages once they cool. A better solution is to pour used cooking oil or grease from fried foods into an empty soup can or milk carton and freeze, and then put it out with the kitchen trash on rubbish collection day. 

Food scraps cause havoc

Think your rubbish disposal is tough enough to take on any food scraps you throw in? Think again. Homeowners should also avoid dumping food into the garbage disposal. Food such as celery, fruit and potato skins, for example, cannot be properly broken down. If you have food scraps to get rid of, try to dump them into the garbage bin as much as possible.

Get a plumber Sydney to do annual checks on your Plumbing Fixtures and fittings

Don’t ignore issues

One of the biggest mistake homeowners make is ignoring their plumbing fixtures. A small problem such as a slow dripping faucet, when ignored, will eventually result in damage to the faucet itself, requiring an early faucet replacement instead of a relatively inexpensive seal repair. 

Hot water systems need attention

Who really pays attention to hot water systems? “These appliances are typically tucked away somewhere so homeowners easily forget to perform much-needed regular maintenance on them. To keep your hot water system operating right, don’t forget to flush the tank once a year. Also don’t forget to check the anode once a year for rust and oxidation. Hot water systems cost hundreds of dollars to replace, and taking these simple steps can really help lengthen the life of your system.

Consult a plumber Sydney when in doubt

Stick within your limits

Homeowners quite often attempt to make plumbing repairs themselves, however, many minor plumbing problems can turn into costly mistakes if not handled properly. Think twice before tackling a difficult plumbing problem on your own. 

Chemicals don’t always work

Many homeowners mistakenly pour strong chemicals into drains, thinking of it as a quick fix. These chemicals can eat away at some types of underground drainpipes shortening their life. Sometimes the quickest solution isn’t always the best solution for the life of your pipes. 

Know when to say no

Think you can handle plumbing repairs on your own? Plumbing repairs attempted by unqualified persons frequently lead to the realization that most amateurs do not have the special tools and experience necessary to do the job correctly. Attempting large plumbing repairs can lead to an unsafe system that does not comply with local plumbing codes and can result in a lot of damage to the system. Anytime you are unsure about how best to handle a plumbing situation, make sure you call a plumber. 

Do regular inspections

A very common plumbing emergency is flood damage caused by rubber washer hoses that have burst. Often, these emergencies could have been avoided by switching to stainless anti-burst lines. If your home is older, you should consider having a licensed plumber come out to inspect your water lines to see if you might need to upgrade.

Get a plumber Sydney to show you where all your shut off valves are

Do you know how to turn off the water if you need to? To avoid irreversible and expensive water damage to your home, know your plumbing system. Ensure all of your shut-off valves actually work, and know how to turn off the water during an emergency. 

Not sure what is going on

If you have a plumbing issue that you aren’t sure how to deal with, the best thing to do is call a plumbing professional. While you may worry that a plumber will be expensive, in the long run a serious plumbing problem can cause a whole lot of trouble if not treated properly.
