Gold Coast Bathroom Renovations Done by Real Master Plumbers

If you want the help of a professional plumber for your bathroom renovations on the Gold Coast, then contact DCM Plumbing today. 

Bathroom renovations are more than just a home improvement project; they’re an investment in comfort, functionality, and value. At DCM Plumbing, we understand the unique needs of Gold Coast residents and offer bespoke bathroom renovation solutions tailored to meet your vision and budget.

Choose DCM Plumbing for Gold Coast bathroom renovations that hit the mark first time. We combine practical plumbing solutions that fit in with the aesthetic of your bathroom renovation. The result? A bathroom that not only looks good but functions flawlessly. 

We firmly believe that while looks are important, a bathroom that prioritises looks over function can lead to negative consequences down the line. For example, let’s imagine a poorly installed vent or drain that’s been hidden away for aesthetic reasons. In a situation like this, you might have issues with damp and mould, which not only can be hazardous for your health, but a layer of mould is enough to take the shine away from any bathroom, no matter how nicely renovated!

So if you want your Gold Coast bathroom renovation to last for years to come, then contact us today. 

At DCM Plumbing, we can make sure that you have the highest quality plumbing during your bathroom renovation. We can help install new:

Drains

A smoothly functioning bathroom starts with efficient drainage. Whether you’re redesigning the layout or adding additional features, the right drainage system is vital. DCM Plumbing’s expertise ensures that new drains are not just installed, but perfectly aligned with your bathroom’s design, making sure water flows seamlessly without blockages or backups.

Vents

Vents are the unsung heroes of any bathroom, preventing unpleasant odours and mitigating damp. When reconfiguring or adding to your bathroom, it’s essential that vents are correctly placed and functioning. Our team makes sure your bathroom remains fresh, with vents strategically positioned to work optimally, and we can get rid of your old noisy vent.

Fixtures

From elegant freestanding bathtubs to contemporary rain showers, the fixtures you choose can redefine your bathroom’s aesthetics. DCM Plumbing is proficient in installing a diverse range of bathroom fixtures, ensuring they not only look good but also function perfectly.

Fittings

The details matter. Sinks, toilets, taps, and other fittings play a crucial role in the overall functionality of your bathroom. We provide expert guidance on choosing fittings that match your style while ensuring they integrate seamlessly with your bathroom’s plumbing framework.

While we can help you with all of the above, any further work might require the help of a certified builder.

FAQS

Plumbing is the backbone of any bathroom. Properly installed and maintained plumbing ensures that water flows smoothly, drains empty efficiently, and fixtures operate seamlessly, ensuring a hassle-free bathroom experience.

Yes, you can. However, this requires adjusting or installing new drains and a potential relocation of the water supply. DCM Plumbing can assist in making these adjustments while ensuring everything adheres to local building codes.

The right fixtures complement your bathroom’s aesthetics while ensuring functionality. Consider the size of your space, your style preference, and utility requirements. Our team can also provide insights on fixtures that best suit your renovation goals.

Yes, there are building and plumbing codes that dictate vent placement and specifications. DCM Plumbing ensures all vent installations or adjustments comply with these codes, ensuring safety and optimal functionality.

A fixture refers to larger items like toilets, sinks, and tubs, which have a designated purpose. Fittings are the components that help these fixtures function, such as taps, valves, or connectors.

The duration depends on the scope of your project—whether you’re making minor adjustments or undertaking a full renovation. Once we assess your space and requirements, we can provide a more accurate timeline.

It largely depends on the work being done. For simple fixture replacements, your bathroom may still be usable. However, for major renovations, especially ones involving drains or waterproofing and tiling, you might have to avoid using the space until the work is complete.

At DCM Plumbing, we have extensive experience in servicing all brands of hot water systems across the Gold Coast, and with over 37 years of experience, we provide unparalleled service that will be sure to extend your water heater’s lifespan for years to come.

Good Hot Water System Maintenance Means Fewer Problems

Is there anything like a good hot shower at the end of a long day of work? Or maybe we should ask if there’s anything worse than a cold shower when you’re not expecting it? 

Needless to say, we’ve all grown accustomed to having hot water literally on tap, and it’s easy to take it for granted. But hot water system maintenance is a vital part of ensuring you have hot water when you want, every time you want it – not only will it extend the life of your hot water system, but the plumber can also advise as to when you might need a hot water system replacement. This guarantees there are no nasty surprises. 

We recommend hot water systems receive maintenance as follows:

Electric Hot Water System

A minor service every six months and a major service every five years. The minor service involves carefully lifting the temperature and pressure relief valve to release pressure and performing a visual inspection of the drain line and unit for leaks, blockages, or wear and tear. This can be done by the occupant. A major service is recommended once every five years and must be performed by a licensed professional (like us). 

Gas Hot Water System

Gas hot water systems only need a service once every five years. This type of system needs the least amount of services and maintenance.

Continuous/Instantaneous Flow

Once a year the continuous/instantaneous flow systems will need a service and maintenance.

Heat Pump

Once a year the heat pump systems will need a service and maintenance.

Solar Hot Water System

Similar to the gas systems, once every five years a solar hot water system.

When undertaking a major service of your hot water system, we perform the following: 

  • Replace the temperature and pressure relief valve
  • Replace the hot water unit anode
  • Inspect and flush the cold water expansion control valve
  • Test water temperature in hot water unit and adjust if necessary
  • Test water temperature at tap to ensure tempering valve is working correctly
  • Visually check the unit for any potential problems
  • Visually check the heating element for signs of leaking
  • Inspect all connections for leaks
  • Check the drain line from the safe tray is not blocked
  • Check and replace batteries in Mildred valve if installed

At DCM, we recommend Aquamax hot water systems. We believe these electric water heaters offer the best combination of value for money and quality construction. That being said, we have extensive experience with all hot water systems.

So don’t risk it – regular hot water system servicing means you won’t run into any rude (cold) awakenings. If you’re reading this a little too late, we also provide hot water system repairs and water heater replacements

Fixed Price Guaranteed

To give you financial peace of mind, we offer upfront pricing for all hot water replacements, services and repairs.

Need A Water Heater Service on the Gold Coast?

If you’re in need of a water heater service on the Gold Coast, then you’re in the right place. 

Like many appliances in your home, water heaters require regular maintenance and servicing from a qualified professional to ensure optimal operation for years to come. If not serviced correctly or as regularly as they should, a whole host of things can go wrong:

  • Your water heater might start leaking, causing water damage to your home. 
  • Hot water systems can often rust quite extensively, and, if left unchecked, this rust can spread and leave you in need of a replacement.
  • A poorly looked after water heater can result in higher energy bills – and they’re high enough at the moment already!
  • If poorly maintained, they can overheat, making them a fire hazard. 
  • Sometimes they just stop working altogether – and they don’t wait for a convenient time to pack it in either.

DCM Plumbing is a family-run team of professional plumbers. Our team is dedicated to supplying a professional plumbing and drainage service throughout the Gold Coast. We have been servicing residential and commercial properties since 2002 within Burleigh Heads and throughout the Gold Coast region. So don’t risk the cold showers – contact us today.

How Often Do Water Heaters Need Replacement?

How long a water heater lasts before needing a replacement depends on a variety of factors. These include:

Quality

Quality is arguably the most critical factor to consider when looking at how long water heaters last. You get what you pay for – and at DCM Plumbing, we only provide the best

System type

There are several types of hot water systems to choose from, each with its own estimated lifespan. These are:

  • Gas Hot water systems: 8-12 years
  • Electric hot water systems: 10-15 years 
  • Solar hot water system: 10+ years (up to 20 with proper maintenance)
  • Heat pump: 10-15 years

All of these hot water systems come at varying price points

  • Electric hot water systems are the cheapest to buy and install.
  • Gas hot water systems are more expensive up front but cheaper in the long run (although their suitability is limited on the Gold Coast).
  • Solar hot water systems are costly upfront but pay off in the long run, especially after 7+ years. These are an excellent option for those buying a new home.
  • Heat pumps are relatively expensive all round, generally not a good choice.

Prices for a new hot water system vary greatly depending on your individual requirements. We can install any water heater brand, however, we usually recommend Aquamax. These units come with a 10-year cylinder warranty.

Maintenance

Proper hot water system servicing can significantly extend its longevity, sometimes even years longer. So if you can’t remember the last time your hot water system was serviced, contact us today, and we can ensure you get the most out of your system. 

Usage

A hot water system that gets more usage will wear out faster than one that gets little use. 

Water hardness

The last factor that can affect a hot water system’s longevity is water hardness. Hard water (water with a high mineral content) will cause accelerated corrosion leading to premature aging and potential problems down the road. Unfortunately, Queensland has hard to moderately hard water, so water heaters here deteriorate quickly. This means you should contact us to replace your hot water system today – why risk it?

If your bathroom seems to suffer from sewer smells every once in a while, but doesn’t show signs of any blockages, you may benefit from fitting a device in your floor waste that prevents sewer smells from travelling back up into the room.

In the realm of plumbing, certification matters – and when it comes to backflow prevention, you want nothing less than the best. That’s why at DCM Plumbing, we are proud to have a team of backflow certified plumbers who are meticulously trained to handle all issues that can arise from backflow. Our plumbers have undergone extensive training and are certified to inspect, install, and maintain backflow prevention devices, ensuring that your water supply remains pure and uncontaminated. 

With DCM Plumbing, you’re not just hiring a plumber; you’re partnering with a specialist. Our backflow certified plumbers are dedicated to providing not only top-tier service but also educating our clients on the importance of backflow prevention. We are adept at identifying risks and implementing solutions that comply with all local regulations, giving you peace of mind knowing that your property is in safe, capable hands. Trust DCM Plumbing for all your backflow prevention needs.

Backflow testing is a precise and essential procedure designed to protect the purity of our water supply, and it’s a task our team at DCM Plumbing takes seriously. When we conduct backflow testing, our certified plumbers initiate the process by shutting off the downstream shut-off valve of your plumbing system. 

After waiting a few crucial minutes, we employ a specialised backflow testing kit to measure the pressure within your system. This is done to ensure that the pressure levels are appropriate and that your backflow prevention device is functioning optimally. If there is a difference or drop in water pressure, a properly functioning backflow device will prevent contaminated water, potentially laden with hazardous chemicals, bacteria, or debris, from flowing back into the mains water system. 

With our detailed approach, our team will confirm the integrity of your water supply, leaving you with nothing but peace of mind and the highest standard of water quality. At DCM Plumbing, backflow testing isn’t just a service – it’s a safeguard for your health and home. Find out more about backflow testing in our blog.

We understand the critical role backflow testing plays on the Gold Coast in protecting our health and our environment. We strive to consistently deliver top-notch service that goes beyond simply meeting regulatory requirements, fostering long-term relationships built on trust, reliability, and excellence. If you suspect that your property may be at risk or are due for your annual backflow testing, don’t hesitate to protect your water supply. Contact us today. 

FAQ's

Backflow testing is a process used to ensure that your drinking water supply isn’t contaminated by water flowing backwards from your property into the main water supply. It involves checking a device installed in your plumbing system, which prevents contaminated water from reversing direction.

We have over 37 years of experience in the plumbing industry and are dedicated to providing our customers with the highest quality service. DCM Plumbing is thrilled to also provide fast and reliable same-day service with a $0 call-out fee.

Regulations on the Gold Coast require backflow prevention devices to be tested annually. Regular testing helps maintain the device’s proper functioning and compliance with local water safety standards.

During a backflow test, a certified plumber will inspect your backflow prevention device for any signs of wear or failure. They will perform tests to ensure the device is effectively preventing reverse water flow, documenting the results for regulatory compliance.

A backflow test typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the system’s complexity and accessibility of the device.

Only licensed plumbers with specific training in backflow prevention are qualified to perform backflow testing. DCM Plumbing’s team includes certified professionals who specialise in backflow testing and compliance.

BACKFLOW TESTING AVAILABLE TO ALL GOLD COAST AREAS

Water hammer is a hydraulic shock that typically occurs in old pipes after a valve is shut off suddenly. Water hammering which causes noisy pipes can be very annoying but quite often very easily resolved.

Water hammer, noisy pipes

What is water hammer in pipes?

Water hammer occurs when a tap, toilet, washing machine or dishwasher shuts off the water flow. This is when the water hammering banging noise can be heard. Sometimes it sounds like a shuddering noise vibrating down the length of the pipes. This is the sudden stopping of the momentum of the water flowing through the pipes.

Common Water Hammer Causes

Water hammer arrestor, noisy pipes, banging pipes

How To Resolve Water Hammer

1. Reduce water pressure

To resolve the water hammer noises, we first need to investigate which particular issue is at the root of your problem. One way to eliminate noisy pipes can be to install a pressure reducing valve (PRV). A PRV limits the pressure of the water moving through the pipes. If there is no PRV installed:

  • the pressure is governed by Gold Coast Water, who supplies your water
  • this can create a lot of stress on your system causing noisy pipes or water hammer

2. Check for loose mounting straps in your pipes

Another way to resolve water hammer may be as simple as clipping loose pipes back into place to stop them moving and banging each time water is turned off around the home.

3. Drain your water system to replenish air chambers

Water hammer in pipes can be kept to a minimum by installing a new air chamber or a water hammer arrestor. On rare occasions the only way to resolve persistent water hammer at a particular fixture is to fit a water hammer arrestor which is a small device that stops pressure from building up each time water is turned off at a fixture. These devices are an inexpensive addition to your plumbing infrastructure and can be fitted neatly and easily wherever necessary.

Our plumbers have many years experience at tracing the cause of noisy pipes and water hammer. With their fully stocked vans they’ll fix it fast, so you can settle down to a nice cuppa, without having to listen to the clanging and banging anymore.
