While even the most sophisticated water systems have a shelf life and may need service or repair at any time, we see some common mistakes being made time and time again. Take note of our plumbing tips and tricks to avoid some common plumbing issues in future:
Locate the main water valve
If a leak does occur, there’s often little time to minimise damage. Make sure every household member knows where the main water valve is and how to switch it off in the event of an emergency,
Avoid using chemical drain cleaners
Harsh chemicals like caustic soda should never be used to unblock a drain. While they may appear to be the easy way to solve a household problem, with ongoing use, the chemicals can erode pipes causing irreparable damage.
Never pour oil or fat down the drain
Pouring oil or fat down the drain will lead to build-up that will clog the pipes over time. Instead of down the drain (yes, even as a liquid!), wait for the fat to cool down and solidify and discard it in household waste.
Use a hair strainer
Hair and soap scum are common causes of shower or bath drain blockages. Use a removable strainer before each shower and empty into the household rubbish after every use.
Avoid flushing anything but toilet paper
A toilet is only designed to flush two things – toilet paper and waste. Anything else can increase the chance of blockages that can lead to flooding and serious property damage. Avoid flushing sanitary products, face wipes, children’s toys and even paper towels that can all get caught in the U-bend.

If you think you may have a plumbing leak, there are a few ways to tell. One way is to look for water stains on the ceilings or walls near your plumbing fixtures. You can also listen for a dripping sound, which may indicate a leaky faucet or pipe. Additionally, you can perform a simple water test by placing a few drops of food coloring in your toilet tank. If the color begins to show up in the bowl, you have a leak.
If you’re experiencing a clogged drain, there are a few things you can do to try to clear it. One option is to use a plunger. Another is to pour a pot of boiling water down the drain. If that doesn’t work, you may need to use a snake or a mechanical auger to clear the clog.

If you have a frozen pipe, there are a few things you can do to try to thaw it. One option is to use a hair dryer. Another is to wrap the pipe in towels soaked in hot water. You can also pour hot water over the pipe or use a space heater set on low next to it. Be sure not to use an open flame, such as a blowtorch, to thaw the pipe, as this could cause a fire.
There are a few things you can do to prevent your pipes from freezing. One option is to insulate your pipes with foam or pipe insulation. Another is to keep a steady stream of water flowing through the pipes, even during cold weather. You can also open cabinet doors under the sink to allow more heat to get to the pipes.
