DIY Plumbing

Access to information on the internet has made it very easy for DIY enthusiasts to get all the details and guidance they need for various home improvement projects.  It also means that many people are now attempting to handle plumbing jobs on their own. So is this really a good idea? We at SPS Eastern Suburbs strongly believe that plumbing jobs are best left to professionals like us. 

Most of these tasks are not easy to handle, and it is also legally necessary for you to hire licensed and certified plumbers for any plumbing installations on your property.  Not only will they handle the job to industry standards using the best quality materials, but they will also give you the completion certificate as required.

They will make sure that the job is completed safely, and will provide guarantees for their work. All of these are essential things when it comes to plumbing installations on your property, and it is never a good idea to take chances with doing the jobs yourself.

Why you should never do DIY Plumbing

Many different things can go wrong when you try to attempt handling plumbing jobs on your own, such as:

  • Most plumbing systems are under the ground or even enclosed behind walls. When trying some DIY Plumbing jobs, if you decide to open the drywall panels, you may end up damaging adjacent once. Fix all of these damages can become very expensive for you and prove to be troublesome as well.
  • On any property, there are different types of pipes used for different kinds of plumbing. When you are replacing a portion of a pipe, if you use the wrong sizes or materials to connect to existing ones that can affect the working of the system, it can also end up in leakages, which can become expensive for you to fix. 
  • It isn’t uncommon for many people to forget switching off the main water connection before starting on plumbing tasks in the home. This can prove to be detrimental because water pooling your property can cause damage to hardwood flooring, the underlayment as well as many other features.

As you can see, many things can go wrong when you attempt any plumbing jobs on your own.  The best way to avoid all these problems to get regular maintenance done for all of the systems. Properly maintained plumbing fixtures and fittings would work in a trouble-free manner and last for many years without any trouble. However, if you do find any problems arising, feel free to give us a call.

Plumbing issues that should be fixed on time

  • Blocked Drains- While drains tend to get blocked occasionally, you should never ignore this issue if the blockage occurs very often. If the bathroom and kitchen sinks do not drain quickly or if the bathtub and shower areas get flooded very regularly, it could indicate clogs in your drains. Call in a skilled plumber without delay. They will use CCTV drain cameras as well as high-pressure jet and electric root cutters to clear the pipes and remove the blockage.
  • No Hot Water- Hot water is something that almost every property has. It means that if there is any problem with the hot water system, it can affect the workings on your property.  If you find that the water heater isn’t functioning as it should or if there is rusty water, smelly water, or no water coming from the system, call in a licensed plumber without delay. They will inspect the system, assess what the problem is, and provide a suitable solution.
  • Running Toilet- When you flush the toilet, the water needs to stop after a specific time.  If this doesn’t happen, you should call in a plumber immediately. A running toilet could indicate that the internal mechanism for pipes is not working as it should.  A skilled plumber will address the issue expertly.
  • Leaky Faucet – Tap and faucet leaks may seem like annoyances, but they also waste a significant amount of water. Sometimes, leaving the problem as it is can also cause a sudden spurt of water, which can damage various features in your kitchen or bathroom.

If you have noticed any of these problems, make it a point to call the plumber immediately. Never neglect these problems as they can quickly get out of hand.

Common Reasons of Low Water Pressure Issues

If you have low water pressure in your home, it can be very frustrating to deal with it. Somehow, you can’t seem to shower correctly or do the dishes correctly. Your laundry will take longer to get done, and low water pressure just slows everything down.

It isn’t uncommon for many property owners to ignore plumbing issues, but low pressure can prove to be very difficult to neglect. This is when you need the services of a reliable and experienced plumber to handle the job for you. While there is no shortage of plumbing companies in Sydney, we at SPS Eastern Suburbs have made our mark in this field.

Over the years, we have handled all types of big and small jobs for commercial and residential clients at very cost-effective pricing. We provide value for money while making sure that our clients get the best quality services at all times. In addition to offering standard solutions, we are also on call 24/7 to handle all types of plumbing emergencies. If you have a water pressure problem in your home, we are the company to call.

What causes low-pressure problems in plumbing?

While we handle plumbing jobs of every type, we also like to keep our clients well informed about the different types of issues that can plague their plumbing system. Here we take a look at what they are:

  • Sometimes, a faulty water metre could be the cause of very low water pressure in your home. If you have noticed that the water pressure is low in all areas of your home, check the water metre valve. Ensure that it is turned up fully and then check whether there is any improvement in the water pressure.
  • Many homes also have water pressure regulators that can be used to reduce the flow of water. If you have this device installed on your property, check whether it is at the correct setting. In case you are not very confident about whether you are doing this right, you can call in an experienced and licensed plumber to check the setting and increase it if required. It is never a good idea to experiment with high water pressure even though it might seem to increase comfort levels while showering or bathing etc.
  • If you have had any plumbing work done on your property recently, the contractors might not have turned the main valve up all the way. This can cause low water pressure. It is something you should be checking on in case you face a problem.
  • Sedimentation build-up inside the water pipes or rusting and corrosion are other issues that can impact the flow of water on your property.

While some of these issues may be evident, others may not be so. One of the best ways to make sure that you get the problem fixed within the shortest possible time is to call an expert plumber in Sydney.
