How to know if you need emergency plumbers?
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 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 plumbers in Melbourne have 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 experts at all times and proves they are licensed to operate. You can request to see this upon arrival. To check that the 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.

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.
