Help Us Preserve Communal Health

Doctors and plumbers are not usually compared to each other but when you think about it, the work of plumbers is just as important as the work of doctors in protecting the overall health of the community. In Australia, it’s easy to take clean drinking water and sufficient sanitary systems for granted. It takes the cooperation of citizens and plumbers alike to preserve the health of the community. Learn what you can do in this initiative by taking our tips provided below.

Water Heaters

If your tank leaks, you hear a rumbling noise, the efficiency is down from where it was previously. The water is brown or discoloured? Replacement is needed.

Toilets

Your toilet may need repair if it is leaking from the tank or the base. Another indication is if you hear a vibrating noise when the toilet is flushed. Call our team for help.
check the plug

Garbage Disposals

Garbage disposal suddenly stops? Check the plug under the sink, see if it’s still plugged into the electrical outlet. If an object falls into the disposal, don’t attempt to remove it on your own

Plumbing Emergencies

In the event of a plumbing emergency, make sure to be familiar with and label the location of the incoming main water supply and shut-off valve. This helps in the event of an emergency to shut off the water quickly. Locate, identify and label all other shut-off valves and check periodically if they are working correctly. This prevents leaking situations and other emergency problems.

Make sure to know the location of the drain valves on your heating units and hot water heater, which allows for proper maintenance during non-heating seasons. At the onset of dripping ball valves and taps, call us right away. Do not hesitate as it may turn a simple problem into a disaster. Make sure to keep our telephone numbers in a handy location.

Plumbing Tips and Hints

Your drains can get blocked by a lot of different things. Some of the more common and less serious issues include:

  • Hair
  • Grease or fat (both from cooking and from some types of soap)
  • Dirt or mud
  • Food waste

These things are relatively easy to clear and won’t cause your plumbing system too many problems. However, a few drain-blocking culprits can be very serious if not handled by a professional, such as:

  • Small objects
  • Tree roots

Thirsty tree roots may grow and intrude on your pipes, cracking the pipes and blocking the drain in the process. Small objects like toys, feminine napkins or wipes can cause blockages far down your drains as well.

When these things happen and you need a blocked drain specialist plumber, call Andrew Vanny Plumbing for reliable and quick plumbing service.

 

Here at Andrew Vanny Plumbing, we strive to make the drain-clearing process as easy as possible for our customers. We fix your blocked drain in three easy steps:
  • We clear the blockage using either an electric eel or a pressurised water jet.
  • We can use our CCTV equipment to get a full-colour inspection of your pipes and ensure there are no further issues.
  • We can replace any pipes or drainage line that needs it.
Our professionals can also set up blockage prevention visits annually or semi-annually, if you request it. If your pipes burst or leak in your home or underground, we can help with that too. Firstly, turn off your water so that you don’t deal with water damage. Then, wait until our team of professionals arrives to fix the problem. Call us on 0480 009 605 to get the plumbing help you need in Hornsby.
