Emergency Plumber For Burst Pipes, Leaks and Flooding

Dealing with a burst pipe, a pipe leak, or internal flooding requires the professional tools and experience of a trade-qualified emergency plumber. Due to their capacity to cause extensive water damage, a burst pipe or leaking plumbing is definitely a good enough reason to call your emergency plumber team at Drainfast. If you can, switch off the mains water supply to limit water damage to your premises before you pick up the phone. Otherwise, our team can walk you through these steps to prevent damage and make the job easier when your emergency plumber arrives.

If a burst or leaking pipe is not discovered and the water shut off promptly, it can waste over 400 litres of water per-hour. Not only is this water wasted, it is likely to be flooding through your premises, damaging surfaces, electricity connections, and appliances.

You can reduce the risk of a burst pipe or leaking pipe occurring by having your plumbing system inspected regularly. With Drainfast, you can schedule regular plumbing maintenance according to your unique circumstances, requirements, and budget in order to deliver the best balance of safety and longevity in your plumbing system. During regular maintenance, your Drainfast plumber will inspect the condition of your plumbing system and if required, perform drain cleaning and other preventative maintenance procedures. This is the best way to prevent a blocked drain, burst pipe, or internal flooding from creating a plumbing emergency.

Emergency Plumber For Blocked Toilet Melbourne

A blocked toilet can be a sinister problem if caused by more than simply going a bit heavy on the toilet paper (in which case a plunger could do the trick). The first sign of trouble might be a bad smell, or water draining more slowly than usual from the toilet bowl. These indicate that your sewer drain is blocked or damaged, creating a sewer backup.

This is a very serious problem, as if allowed to back up far enough, this sewer material can seep out of low-lying drains such as shower and bathtub drains as well as out of the toilet.

So not only is a blocked toilet a very inconvenient thing to put up with, it can also be a sign that more serious plumbing problems are brewing. If you notice a foul smell along with a blocked toilet, it is better to act sooner rather than later and call a Drainfast emergency plumber.

Emergency Plumber For Blocked Drains Melbourne

The same rule applies to other blocked drains, the cause may be more serious than a minor clog or build-up in the pipes. If there has been heavy rain lately, or leaf fall, then foreign objects may have created a serious blockage in your pipes. You can always try a DIY natural drain cleaning solution and/or the trusty plunger, but if you see the following, you should call your Drainfast emergency plumber:

  • Water rising back up through drains
  • Leaks, pooled water where normally there was none
  • Sounds, such as hissing sounds, coming from your plumbing
  • A foul smell
  • Wet patches on the roof, ceiling, carpet etc.

These may indicate that a blocked drain has progressed to a leak, burst, or backup, and that it requires professional attention as soon as possible to prevent major damage from occurring.
