We’re officially into the cooler months, and there’s nothing better than a good hot shower with high pressure after a day out in the cooler elements. One of the most annoying things that can happen to hot water is when your hot water pressure is lacking, and you receive a trickle of water instead of the hot blast you were hoping for. Don’t despair; it’s a widespread problem and could be caused by a variety of reasons.
It’s around this time of year when we’re entertaining more and often have friends and family drop in for a visit, and the last thing anyone wants is a toilet that won’t flush. Trying to figure out the problem can be frustrating if you don’t know what you’re looking for. There are three common reasons for a toilet not being able to flush, and in most cases you should be able to fix these problems yourself.
It’s almost here, the day that brings families together to enjoy good company, food and fun. Christmas is a time of joy and good spirits, but it’s also a time for lots of entertaining in one home which can often lead to strain on drains resulting in blocked drains and toilets. Ensure your Christmas runs smoothly by incorporating these handy plumbing tips.
Summer is almost here and in Australia in terms of weather, this either means lots of dry heat or lots of rain. While last year we had high levels of hot temperatures and a devastating bushfire season, this year meteorologists are predicting a much more wet season. According to The Bureau of Meteorology, we are officially entering a La Niña season, forecasting we could be in for a wet spring and summer and possible flooding and cyclones.
If you’ve never fixed a leaking tap, don’t worry, you’re not alone, and it’s much easier than you might first think. A leaking tap can cause a lot of problems if not fixed quickly, including potentially damaging your home, wasting water and causing your water bill to skyrocket. The good news is that learning how to change a tap washer is all that is required in most cases to stop a tap from leaking.

High water pressure (over 600KPA) and what it does to your plumbing infrastructure and fittings
Water which is being forced through the pipes at high pressure can cause the
pipes it travels through to experience more wear and tear which leads to more
frequent burst pipes, increased water hammer, premature wear on tap and
toilet parts and water using electrical appliances such as icemaker fridges,
dishwashers, washing machines and hot water units. It can also increase water
usage if restricted outlets have not been fitted in the property.
Needing an emergency plumber in the Gold Coast area is never fun or convenient. But it happens to everyone so being prepared is the name of the game.
