Starting From Price

No Matter What Your Plumbing Issue Is, We Can Fix It!

Blocked Pipe & Drain Repairs

A burst pipe is probably the most damaging plumbing issue any homeowner can experience. Pipes allow water to flow throughout your home. Once they break, they can release a lot of water, and you will have to deal with wider damages to your house and property.

This is a plumbing emergency no one should ever ignore and neglect. If your pipe has suddenly burst, immediately turn off the water flow from your water main and contact a certified plumber immediately. Our professionals can handle any pipe issues, including water leak repairs, frozen pipe repairs, and other damages.

Hot Water System Installs & Repairs

A hot water heater is vital for every home, especially during our cold Melbourne winters. It can be frustrating to find out that your shower won’t turn hot due to a faulty water heater and take our word, it always happens at the worst of times!

If your water heater is not functioning, a common reason is due to old age (average life span of a hot water system is between 10-15 years) and electrical faults. Contacting an emergency plumber will help assess and fix any damage through either repair or replacement. You never know when these issues will arise, and having our trusted 24 hour plumber available on standby will hopefully provide you some peace of mind.

Toilet Blockages & Repairs

One essential part of your home is your toilet. We all use it every day, so it’s essential to take immediate action whenever toilet issues, such as overflow and clogs arise.

Using a plunger can help you unclog your toilet. But sometimes, plunging isn’t enough to fix the issues and it may be a larger issue at play such as a blocked drain. Overflowing toilets can also be a nuisance.

Problems such as serious clogs and overflowing toilets will need an emergency plumber for a quick solution. Our experts have the right tools to fix the issues and clear any obstruction in your toilet. 

Sink Drain Blockages & Repairs

Another household essential that an emergency plumber can help fix is your kitchen sink. Clogging regularly happens in all types of sinks, and if not resolved effectively can easily escalate into a more damaging problem.

Although you may be able solve the problem yourself, there are instances when DIY solutions will not work. Kitchen sinks include a drain trap that prevents sewer gas from leaking.

It’s advisable to let the professionals handle your kitchen sink problems to ensure proper functions without any leak or future costly damages.

Gas Fitting

Our emergency plumbers can also fix gas lines and fitting problems, not only water lines as we are fully licensed under Energy Safe Victoria's Gas Safety Regulations 2018. A gas leak is a serious concern that needs urgent action since it can put you and your family's health and safety at risk.

If you have a gas line emergency, reach out to our professional gas plumbers who will immediately fix the problem before it leads to more dangerous situations.

Sewer Plumbing Repairs

The sewer is an integral component of your home’s plumbing system. When sewer backup happens, you will likely experience water pooling around the drains, foul smells, and slow draining issues.

A sewer backup calls for an emergency plumbing service. Don’t leave such an issue unsolved. Contact a trusted local plumber and get your entire plumbing system back on track.

Shower Drain Repairs

Hair build up and soap scum can and regularly block your shower drains. It’s concerning to take a shower and see the water is gradually rising to your ankles. In worst cases, clogged drains can lead to flooding as the water won’t make its way out of your shower.

Fortunately, our 24hr emergency plumber can help you fix such a serious problem. You can trust that our experts will promptly eliminate the clogging and slow draining issue in your shower.

Leaking Tap Repairs

All household taps deliver water from your plumbing system. You just have to turn it on, and the water will flow out from it. Switching it off should stop the water from flowing. However, if leaks are evident, there must be a problem.

Dripping taps can be a nuisance and will add to your water bill. Especially when this is regularly occurring for a few months - it all starts to add up. Fixing the leaks is important to save yourself from additional water costs. Give your trusted emergency plumber in Melbourne a call to help fix any leaking taps!
