The Most Common Plumbing Issues in Mackay

While residents and businesses in Mackay can face any number of plumbing issues, below are the most common plumbing issues we fix for customers.


Blocked Drains

Blocked drains are not just inconvenient, they can also lead to major damage down the line if not addressed quickly. They can be caused by foreign objects piling up or lodging in the pipes, tree roots invading external or damaged pipes.

While you can attempt to use drain cleaner, or a plunger to dislodge the blockages yourself, this can cause more damage. It’s a good idea to call a professional to help unclog the drain.

Leaky Taps

Leaking taps are another common issue in Mackay. Leaking taps are not only annoying but also a massive waste of water that can lead to increased water bills if the leak persists for a long time.

The key is to identify the source of the leak. If you can’t identify the cause or don’t know how to replace the parts, then it’s a good idea to call a professional plumber to inspect your tap and quickly diagnose the issue, fixing the leak for you.


Burst Pipes

Burst pipes can lead to significant damage to your home and thus need immediate attention. If you suspect you have a burst pipe shut off your water at the mains (water meter).

Once the water is shut off you can try to identify the exact location of the burst pipe and assess the damage to repair it. However, it’s a good idea to contact a professional plumber. They will be able to locate the burst pipe and repair it for you.

Regular Plumbing Maintenance in Mackay

In our tropical climate, it is recommended that homeowners have their plumbing system inspected and maintained by a qualified plumber at least once every 5 years.  If you notice any unexplained or sudden changes in your water bills or experience any other plumbing issues, you should call a plumber for a more immediate check.

During maintenance, plumbers should assess the state of your pipes, fixtures, and appliances for signs of wear and tear or damage. They should also check the water pressure and quality to ensure it meets the necessary safety standards.

By completing regular maintenance you can ensure that any minor issues are caught early so they don’t deteriorate into major plumbing emergencies.

FAQs for Plumbers in Mackay

What is the most common plumbing problem in Mackay?

One of the most common plumbing problems in Mackay is blocked drains. Blocked drains are a serious inconvenience and can lead to additional damage if not addressed quickly. It is important to call a qualified plumber as soon as you notice any signs of a blockage, such as slow draining water and strong odours coming from your pipes. A professional plumber will be able to assess the issue and recommend the best solution.

How do I fix a blocked drain?

To fix a blocked drain, you'll need to assess the cause of the blockage and choose an appropriate solution. Possible causes of a blocked drain include foreign objects lodged in the pipes, tree roots causing damage, or a broken pipe. To diagnose the problem more precisely, you can use a plumbing snake or hire a professional plumber to inspect your pipes. Once you have identified the cause, you can use a suitable remedy to unblock the drain.

How do I fix a leaking tap?

To fix a leaking tap, you must first identify the source of the leak. If the water is dripping from the spout, it may be caused by worn washers or seals in the valve seat or faucet assembly. If it is coming from around the handle, then it is likely to be caused by damaged O-rings or packing nuts. In either case, the necessary components can be replaced or repaired.

What should I do if I have a burst pipe?

If you have a burst pipe, the immediate priority is to turn off the water supply. This can usually be done at the stop tap, which is normally found under the sink or in an outside wall near your home. If you cannot locate it, contact your local plumbing company for help.

Once the water has been turned off, try to identify where exactly the leak is coming from and assess the damage. If you are not able to repair it yourself, call a plumber or contact your local water company for advice. In some cases, they may even be able to fix the pipe themselves and provide any necessary compensation.

How often should I have my plumbing checked?

It is recommended that homeowners have their plumbing systems inspected by a professional at least once every 5 years. This inspection should include an assessment of pipes, fixtures, and appliances for any signs of deterioration or damage. The inspector will also check for any water pressure issues and test the water quality to make sure it meets safety standards. Additionally, if there are any unexplained changes in your water bills or if you experience any plumbing-related issues, it is recommended that you have your plumbing checked more frequently. By having regular inspections done, you can help ensure that your plumbing system is in top working order and can potentially prevent costly repairs in the future.
