You see the faucets, the sinks, the shower, the drains. And what you experience are safe water for drinking, hot water from your efficient hot water heaters making your essential chores easy, and waste going down the drain.
What you don’t see is the plumbing system behind all these activities. And only experts understand the correct method of how the mechanism of your plumbing system must work.
But it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t know the basics of it. Getting a better insight into how your plumbing system works will help you, in the long run, to understand better the kind of problems that’ll occur. And you’ll know when to call a professional to do the necessary plumbing jobs.
The key to a sound plumbing system starts with the proper installation from the very beginning. Then, your chances of having problems with having water in different faucets, fixtures, and water-using appliances are slim. Expect also to lessen blockages, leakages and even plumbing emergencies. But natural wear and tear can cause a few challenges along the way. And when these occur, you need professionals to work on your plumbing problem.
Here are some of the problems to watch out for that indicate your plumbing system isn’t working as it should:
Letting a tap leak at one drip per second can waste more than 3,000 gallons yearly. 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 plumbing concerns.
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 what you can see. What you can’t see is a damaged pipe underneath. So don’t ignore the plink, plink, plink, plink sound of water dripping from your faucet.
Drinking water in Australia is of very high standards. But tap water is less clean than you think. We can’t avoid dust contamination and sediment from pipes when drinking from the tap. The water supply has things like arsenic, boron, lead and mercury! We can even consume chlorine and other chemicals from the sanitation process.
With a water filtration system, you can remove these chemicals and filter the rust from the pipe breakdown from your water supply.
Our North Sydney plumber can install, repair and replace your water filters for you. And rest assured, you only have safe drinking water flowing through your home.
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 to your home, which is unsuitable for use and consumption.
Our North Sydney plumber conducts backflow prevention testing and assessment, so you’re assured only safe and clean water flows through your home. Our expert team can also recommend the most suitable backflow prevention devices and install them.
If your toilet can only confide its problems, 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, let’s help with your toilet.
Fixed Today can perform all your toilet repairs and toilet suite installations in North Sydney. Our plumbers in North Sydney can assist you with kitchen and bathroom repairs and renovations, including the removal and installation of all plumbing facilities.
Blocked kitchen drains
This is a common I-can-do-this plumbing problem. Only there’s also the high possibility you won’t be getting anywhere. You might have poked and picked already. And you could have 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 by a build-up of grease and food. You’ll know this when it’s emitting a strange smell or isn’t draining quickly enough.
But you don’t have to stress about it anymore! Our expert professional plumbers can clear your blocked kitchen drain line with ease. Our plumber in North Sydney can clean blocked drains from your bathroom, laundry sink and outdoor drains. So, if you’re struggling with a clogged kitchen drain in North Sydney or need other plumbing services, contact our plumbing team today.
Overflowing sewer and stormwater drain
Tree root invasion can damage a pipe. Improper materials such as fats, oils, and grease, and storm water in the sewer system can cause sewer backups and overflow.
But our team has high-pressure jet blasters to remove any obstruction effectively. Our trusted local plumber also uses CCTV cameras to inspect your line further to determine if there are cracks. Request a free quote on our CCTV inspections now.
Burst pipe repair
A pipe can fail if not installed correctly. High water pressure, blocked pipes, corrosion, tree root intrusion, moving soil and freezing pipes during winter can cause your pipes to burst.
A burst pipe is an emergency plumbing need.
You can trust our experts to assist with all your plumbing needs, including emergencies like a burst pipe in North Sydney, as we understand how pipes work and how to repair and install them effectively.
Call on our qualified plumber through our emergency plumbing services for any plumbing job you require. Our emergency plumbing unit can be dispatched as soon as possible with our professional plumbers at your door in no time to solve your plumbing problems.
Gas leak work should only be carried out by a certified professional. Since pipes carrying gas are potentially more dangerous than water pipes if not correctly installed, choosing a professional gas plumber to work on them makes sense.

Our licensed gas fitter, as part of our general plumbing services, safely disconnects and installs your appliance, investigates a suspected leak and works with gas fittings.
