Your plumbing has a system. And only experts understand the right method on how its mechanism must work. But it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know the basics of it.
Your Plumbing System 101 will allow you to understand better the kind of problems that occur. And you’ll know when to call for a professional to do it.
If your plumbing system is in place, you won’t have problems with having water to different faucets, fixtures, and water-using appliances. Your wastewater will also run without blocks.
Here are some of the problems to watch out for that indicate your plumbing system isn’t working as it should:
A leaky faucet that drips at one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons per year. This amount of water needed is equivalent to more than 180 showers.
Don't allow a leak to run longer if you want to contribute to your environment and save your home from further damage.
Call an experienced plumber to conduct a leak detection to identify a leaking tap drip. It may be a minor leak or a sign of a worse scenario like a damaged pipe.
A leaking tap may only be a facade. A damaged pipe may be the real culprit, hiding underneath. So don’t ignore the plink, plink, plink, plink sound of water dripping from your faucet.
Backflow of water
When water flowing through your property begins flowing back into your pipes, this is known as backflow.
And this can pose a health hazard. Contaminated water can be delivered into your home, which is unsuitable for use and consumption.
We conduct backflow prevention testing and assessment, so you’re assured only safe and clean water flows through your home. We can also recommend the most suitable backflow prevention devices and install them.
If your toilet can only confide to you the problems it faces, it’ll probably talk a mile and tell you. “I run. I rock. My seat is cracked. I won’t flush well. I’m clogged. I’m not caulked. I’m rusty, and I’m noisy, I’m sweaty. I’ve got rusted bolts and hinges and a corroded flush handle.” And this isn’t the end of its litany.
Okay, help your toilet.

This is a common I-can-do-this plumbing problem. Only you’re not getting anywhere. You’ve poked and picked. And you’ve used all your acidic and organic ingredients in your pantry to dissolve the blockage. But the clog is still there. Or it comes back again.
A kitchen sink can get clogged from a build-up of grease and food. You’ll know this when it’s emitting a strange smell or isn’t draining quickly enough.
The same goes for a bathroom sink. Soap and hair can accumulate in the pipes and interfere with the water flow.

Hot Water Systems
These are red flags if you’re experiencing a shortage or low water pressure with your hot water.
Call your local plumber to make the necessary repairs to your unit.

Overflowing sewer and stormwater drain
In the sewer system, inappropriate materials such as fats, oils, and grease can accumulate at the top and sides of sewer pipes. These can create a build-up until a blockage occurs.
Our solution to your overflowing sewer and stormwater drain is the latest technology. We use our high-pressure jet blasters to remove any obstruction effectively. And we inspect the line further to determine if there are cracks with the use of CCTV cameras.
Burst pipe repair
A pipe not installed correctly from the beginning can cause a burst pipe.
Not only that, but pipes corrode due to high water pressure, blocked pipes, corrosion, tree root intrusion, moving soil and freezing pipes during winter.
You can trust our experts to assist you with your burst pipe in Hills District as we understand how pipes work and how to repair and install them effectively.
You can enjoy a cookout with your gas oven or cooktops or BBQs more if you’re secured they’re safe to use, and they’re free from the threat of gas leaks.
Pipes carrying gas are potentially more dangerous than water pipes if not correctly installed. Gas leaks are causes of carbon monoxide poisoning, fires and big explosions.
So, it only makes sense to rely on a certified gas fitter to carry out gas leak work.
Fixed Today has a team of licenced gas fitters. We are qualified to carry out gas plumbing, a dangerous plumbing concern. We safely disconnect and install your appliance, investigate a suspected gas leak and work with gas fittings.
The traditional method is to excavate underground or breakthrough walls to fix a broken pipe. This process can take time and can be costly.
We can fix blocked drainage or damaged pipes with only a pinhole opening. This is our “No-Dig Repair”, or our pipe relining solutions.
It’s a less intrusive method and a fraction of the regular pipe relining cost. This “trenchless pipe repair” is the most high-tech solution to your plumbing problems. We can finish the job in half the time, the costs involved are lower, and you don’t even have to spend a lot on excavation. You can save your well-manicured lawns and tastefully landscaped garden afterwards.
