8 Reasons to Call an Emergency Plumber

How to know if you need emergency plumbing?

Emergency plumbing is reserved for situations that simply can’t wait. If your bathroom floor has an inch of water on it, then you certainly have an emergency on your hands. Even if your pipes are leaking, then you may want to call in emergency services. A dripping tap is not an emergency, and a burst pipe that is outside the home may also wait until the morning. If you are unsure, you can call us and see if the issue needs an immediate resolution or note.  

What are the most common emergency plumbing problems in Melbourne?

The two most common emergency plumbing problems in Melbourne would be

  • blocked drains
  •  burst or leaking pipes
  • blocked sink, shower, or toilet. 


These problems need to be rectified quickly. If you notice that your toilet is clogged, don’t do what everybody does – flush! It will make a mess and result in toilet overflow. 

But regardless of the mess you are in, our 24/7 365 emergency plumbing service in Melbourne has you covered. 


How can I trust an emergency plumber?

It would be naive to simply accept a visitor at 2 AM, even if you were expecting a call. Always ask the plumber for their plumbing identification before they do any work. This is carried by plumbers at all times and proves they are licensed to operate. You can request to see this upon arrival. To check that the plumbing company is trustworthy, then visit the testimonials page and look at the previous reviews. 

What can I do to maintain my water system?

Generally, it’s best to ask the experts for recommendations and to get the pipes checked frequently. Many water systems are unique. But there are certainly good practices. For instance:

1. Avoid Chemical Cleaning Products – They often corrode the pipes without fully clearing the blocked drain.

2. Reduce Water Pressure – This might sound counterintuitive. But higher water pressure means more pressure on your pipes. You can check this with a hose bib gauge for a low price.

3. Soften The Water – Hard water contains minerals like Calcium and Magnesium that increase pressure and corrodes pipes and fittings. You can soften the water with a softener, but you may need to call a plumber to have it installed.

Call us now on 9331 6633 for a prompt resolution of your problem. 

Frequently Asked Questions About Emergency Plumbing in Melbourne

Plumbing standards are what dictates how plumbing products and services are rendered. In Victoria, the Victorian Building Authority (‘VBA’) is responsible for the enforcement of plumbing standards. The plumbing framework is governed by 3 pieces of regulation:

  • The 1993 Building Act
  • Plumbing Regulations 2018
  • National Construction Code, Volume 3
  • Reed Plumbing & Drainage is compliant with all of the above and keeps abreast of the latest developments in plumbing and drainage.

It’s not just plumbing & drainage innovations that we keep up to date with. We like to offer the latest technology across the board so that the customer experience can be improved, and this includes offering a variety of different payment methods. Currently, we accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, ZipPay, and AfterPay. We also accept cash and cheques.

It is Australian Law (not merely state law) that you have to call a licensed plumber to deal with any work involving your sewer water and drinking water. The same applies to gasfitting. But there are some things that you can do. DIY blocked drain clearing is obviously acceptable, as is changing a showerhead. You can also replace caps on the openings of sanitary drains and change tap washers. In Victoria, you can also waterproof your bathroom, a task that requires licensing in NSW and Queensland.
