Plumber Fixing Leaking Pipes

When it comes to plumbing emergencies, time is of the essence. A burst pipe, blocked drain or malfunctioning hot water system can quickly escalate into a major issue if not addressed promptly. That’s where O’Brien Plumbing Maroochydore steps in. As a trusted name in the Sunshine Coast region, we pride ourselves on offering 24-hour emergency plumbing services to residents and businesses alike.

Why 24-Hour Service Matters

Imagine waking up in the middle of the night to the sound of running water, only to discover a leak in your bathroom. Or perhaps you’re preparing for a family gathering and your kitchen sink decides to block up. These are not situations where you can wait for regular business hours. You need a solution and you need it fast.

We understand the unique challenges posed by the Sunshine Coast’s climate and infrastructure and we’re equipped to handle them at any hour.

Safety First

Plumbing emergencies extend beyond mere inconvenience; they directly impact the safety and security of your home and its occupants. A seemingly minor leak, if overlooked, can compromise the structural integrity of your dwelling, from weakening foundational structures to damaging floorboards. Such water intrusions can also pose significant electrical hazards.

The dangerous mix of water and electricity can result in short circuits, potential fires or even risks of electrocution, especially if appliances are affected. By understanding these risks and being proactive, homeowners can ensure a safer environment. With O’Brien Plumbing Maroochydore’s 24-hour services, you have a trusted partner ready to tackle emergencies and safeguard your home.

Tips for Preventing Plumbing Emergencies

While we’re always here to help in an emergency, here are some steps you can take to minimise the risk of one occurring:

  • Regular Maintenance: Schedule routine checks of your plumbing system. This can help identify potential issues before they become major problems.
  • Be Mindful of What Goes Down the Drain: Avoid disposing of grease, coffee grounds and other potential blockages in your sink.
  • How to Shut Off Your Main Water Supply: In case of a major leak, knowing where and how to shut off your home’s main water supply can prevent extensive damage.

Plumbing emergencies are unpredictable, but with O’Brien Plumbing Maroochydore, you’re never alone. Our 24-hour emergency services and deep-rooted local expertise make us the go-to choice for residents and businesses on the Sunshine Coast. Whether it’s a minor issue or a major crisis, trust us to provide timely, effective and reliable solutions.

If Kitchen Drains Become Clogged, What Do You Recommend?

Try pouring hot water (with a little dish soap) down the drain. If the blockage persists, call us. We will use a camera to inspect the blocked drain, then we will use a high-pressure hose to flush it out.

What Else Can Cause A High Water Bill, Besides Leaking Taps Or Pipes?

Typically, high water bills are caused by inefficient fittings; plumbers can install water-saving aerators, dual-flush cisterns, etc. In addition to underground water leaks and dripping shower heads, leaking hot water heaters can also contribute to a high water bill.

What Is The Recommended Frequency Of Servicing My Hot Water System?

Hot water systems are unpredictable, and we cannot predict when a valve or hot water system will fail until it does. Valve repairs on hot water systems are usually covered by a one-year warranty, and most hot water systems carry a seven-year warranty.

Call us if you notice any leaks, a dramatic change in the temperature, rusty or discoloured water, or noisy operation of your hot water system.

When Roots Grow Inside Drain Lines, What Can Be Done?

If roots become embedded in the underground pipes, we send our camera down and check where the roots are, as well as how deep they are. If necessary, we can jetter the roots out.

As soon as this is complete, new pipes are required, since the roots will continue to creep into the system until there is no room left.

Where tree roots have completely twisted the pipe, it will be necessary to replace a large part of the line.
