It’s the most wonderful time of the year again.
However, it can feel a lot less wonderful when you run into plumbing issues!
Let’s face it, Christmas can be stressful at times. We’ve all had to deal with sudden cancellations, overcooked food and last-minute presents.
Why add a plumbing problem to the mix?
Good, healthy plumbing is essential if you’re entertaining guests at home this Christmas. This isn’t just good Christmas advice – it’s important no matter the season.
Of course, it’s extra important during Christmas!
What can our plumbers in Bayside help with?
Any sort of plumbing emergency can really put a dampener on your Christmas.
However, there are a couple of domestic plumbing issues in particular that can be especially challenging during the holiday season…
Christmas is like an intense fitness bootcamp for your oven. For many of us, the silly season is the most we’ll ever use the ovens in our homes.
Needless to say, if you run into an issue with your gas supply, you can kiss goodbye to that Christmas roast you were planning!
Gas leaks can stop you from using your oven and stove. Not to mention, gas leaks are also plain dangerous, and can put your family and property at risk.
Does your home smell like rotten egg? Having difficulty breathing or suffering from an unexplained headache? You may have a gas leak on your hands.
All gas repair work in Victoria will need the expertise of a gas plumber who is licensed and registered to do such tasks at your home.
Luckily, our emergency plumbers in Bayside are qualified to work on your gas plumbing, and can safely identify and repair gas leaks for you.
Blocked drains are one of the most common plumbing emergencies out there. However, they’re especially common around Christmas time!
With all the cooking and other food preparation tasks that come with Christmas, a lot of food waste, scraps, grease, oil and more end up getting washed down the sink (accidentally or otherwise).
Once that mixture of fats, oil, grease and food scraps cool down, they solidify. No surprise that they often end up causing blocked drains too.
We get it, we really do. Preparing Christmas lunch or dinner is a lot of work, and it’s easy to forget to dispose of this mixture properly, or to think “it’s only one time, what’s the worst that could happen?”
The best way to avoid this problem is to simply not play.
Of course, if you accidentally end up with a blocked drain anyway, our emergency plumbers are more than willing to help out!
We’ll come to your home quickly and solve the problem, allowing you to get all your Christmas cooking completed with minimal delays.
It isn’t just your oven and cooktop that will have to work their socks off this Christmas – so too will your dishwasher plumbing.
As we all know, Christmas cooking comes with a mountain of dirty dishes and eating utensils – far too much to clean by hand.
Enter, your dishwasher – a real lifesaver when it comes to those Christmas dishes!
Of course, like any other appliance, your dishwasher can run into issues.
If the problem is caused by an issue with the connection between your dishwasher and plumbing, we suggest calling a plumber to take a look.
We’ll identify problems with your dishwasher plumbing, including:
- Broken connections
- Leaky pipes
- Water supply issues
- Stuck valves
The Australian summer is hot – luckily, there’s always the option to take a nice, cold shower to cool down.
At least, there’s the option to do so if your shower is working as intended!
Water pressure issues, leaks, hot water problems (because let’s face it, few of us have the fortitude for a true cold shower)… these are just some shower issues that can affect your ability to cool down.
Luckily, our emergency plumbers can diagnose all shower issues and fix them for you!
For most of us, Christmas comes with a lot of guests and relatives.
And during these housecalls, your toilets get a real workout.
Blocked toilets are unpleasant – actually, that’s underselling it, especially if you’re also expecting visitors!
This calls for an emergency plumber. Our plumbers in Bayside can identify the cause and location of the blockage in question, fixing it for you before your guests turn up and notice.
Additionally, we’ll also tell you exactly what caused the blockage in question, allowing you to prevent another untimely blockage shortly afterwards.
