Emergency Plumbing

Plumbing and drainage emergencies can occur at any time. MT Plumbing is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year to rapidly respond to your emergency.

Some typical plumbing and draining emergencies are:

  • Gas Leaks
  • Blocked Drains
  • Burst or Leaking Pipes
  • Burst Hot Water Units or No Hot Water

Gas Leaks

Gas leaks can be dangerous and it is vital that gas leaks are attended to immediately.

At the first sign of a gas leak, turn off all gas appliances at the control point or pilot light and contact MT Plumbing.

MT Plumbing uses the latest in gas leak detection technology and can repair your gas leak problem quickly.

Gas leaks can occur in the following areas around your home or business premises:

  • Gas Meter
  • Gas Stove
  • Gas Heater
  • Gas Oven
  • Gas Hot Water Heater
  • Gas BBQ
  • Gas Bayonet Points

Gas leaks are most often detected by smell. However, if you suspect a gas leak that is not immediately noticeable, check and write down the gas meter reading before you go to bed, then check to see if it has changed by morning. If the number on your gas meter has risen overnight, there may be a gas leak that requires attention and we recommend you contact MT Plumbing as soon as possible to locate and address the source of the leak as soon as possible.

BLOCKED DRAINS

Blocked drains are a common problem experienced at some stage in most homes and businesses. There are a number of reasons that drains will block and often the immediate symptom of the blockage is treated but not the underlying cause.

MT Plumbing offers complete drainage solutions for domestic, industrial and commercial situations. Some signs you might have a blocked drain include:

  • Gulping or gurgling sounds
  • Smelly drain grates
  • Toilet water rising above or falling below ordinary levels
  • Toilet water taking a long time to subside after flushing
  • Floor waste overflowing during showering

If you are experiencing blocked or overflowing drains, cease using any water or tipping any water down the drain and call MT Plumbing immediately at any time of day or night on (02) 9971 9738.

BURST OR LEAKING PIPES

A burst pipe is classed as a water emergency and can cause serious damage to the structure of a building and electrical wiring. It is vital to take action as soon as you discover a burst pipe.

What to do in a burst pipe situation:

  1. Turn off main water supply.
    Turn off the water supply at the main. If you are unsure of the location of the main or how to turn off the water supply, contact MT Plumbing 24/7 for immediate advice and assistance.
    In the instance of a hot water leak, turn off the main water supply and the hot water supply. MT Plumbing can guide you through this process.
  2. Drain the system
    Once the main water supply has been turned off. Turn on all cold water taps to drain remaining water in the pipes. Only drain the hot water taps, when the hot water supply has also been turned off.
  3. Turn off Electrics
    If water from the burst pipe is leaking near electrics or appliances, switch off the mains immediately.

MT Plumbing is available 24/7 for your plumbing and draining emergencies on (02) 9971 9738.

BURST HOT WATER UNIT OR NO HOT WATER

Leaking or burst hot water heaters can ultimately be isolated by turning off the water meter, however a more practical solution is to turn the hot water heater off. This allows cold water to still be used throughout the property and allows toilets and cold water taps to still function.

General recommendations to control your emergency situation.

  1. Locate your hot water heater. It may be outside, inside on top of the roof or in the roof space.
  2. Determine the energy source; gas, electric, solar or heat pump.
  3. Determine the type of heater; storage or instantaneous.

Call MT Plumbing immediately for further expert advice and emergency repairs or replacement of your hot water unit on (02) 9971 9738.
