Causes of blocked drains and how a plumber solves the problem
Clogged drains in the kitchen and bathroom may begin as minor problems, which can escalate into significant issues. Hair and soap residues in the bathroom, and food waste and mineral build-up, are the common causes of a blocked drain. Professional plumbers in Hughesdale have state-of-the-art equipment and special techniques to unclog such drains.
We begin with a thorough inspection to determine the magnitude of the problem. Our plumbers use a drain camera, which helps them to identify what is blocking the drain, its depth, and the best technique to use. Once we detect the blockage, we can use hydro-jetting machines, which use high-pressure water jets to clear the waste in your sewer lines.
What a gas plumber in Hughesdale fixes
The water plumbing technology is similar to gas plumbing. The only difference is what the pipes are carrying. Therefore, you need a licensed gas plumber for all projects in your home. We install, maintain, extend, as well as repair gas lines. With our experience and skills, we can also install all appliances associated with natural gas.
Causes of a burst hot water system
Various things cause hot water systems to fail, leading to water damage in your home. The main causes of water heater failure include:
- Sediment build-up
Over an extended period, minerals from hard water piles at the bottom of a hot water system’s tank. The sediment layer forces the burner to run for an extended period than usual, causing it to overheat and make the tank weaker.
- Rust can cause the tank to deteriorate
Hot water systems are made of iron and steel that rusts as the years go by. The heater has a rust protection element, which may deteriorate over time if not serviced regularly. When the rod fails, your system will rust, eventually leading to leaks.
Carbon monoxide testing
Carbon monoxide is dangerous. Hire a licensed plumber in Hughesdale to test it for you. We use advanced equipment as well as the best techniques to prevent leakage of the dangerous gas. Have your property checked regularly by a reputable plumber to avoid the dangers of the gas.
How to handle a burst pipe
When there is a burst pipe in your property, call Melbourne 24 Hour Plumbing immediately. However, before our technicians get to your property, you can turn off the water main. Identify where the water is leaking from, and if it has spilled to any electrical sockets or fuse box, switch off the electricity too. Try moving some furniture and using a wet/dry vacuum to remove the water. This will prevent the water from soaking into your wooden floors and wall cavities.
How to fix a leaking tap
As mentioned earlier, when there is a leak in your property, turn off the main water supply. Use a spanner to take off the tap’s cover and remove the handle. Use a pipe range to unscrew the tap bonnet and remove the jumper valve. Replace the O-ring, jumper valve, and body washer with new parts and lubricate the valve as well as the spindle for smoother tap operations and better sealing. Assemble the tap and turn it off. With that, confidently switch on the water main.

A sewer jet is a powerful drain cleaning equipment, which uses high-pressure water jets to clean debris build-up in both residential and commercial drains. Also known as water jetters or hydro-jetters, the machine can also clear obstructions in large municipal sewer lines.
When to use a drain camera and its purposes

Plumbers using a drain camera to conduct a drain survey. This is an in-depth inspection of a property’s drainage system using advanced CCTV cameras which are inserted into the drains.
