Emergency Plumbing FAQ’s

Shane Howison - Owner of Curl Curl Plumbing

As a plumbing expert from Sydney, I’ve heard just about every question in the book. Lucky for you, I’ve got some answers! So sit back, grab a cuppa, and let’s tackle some of the most common emergency plumbing FAQ’s out there.

Click the links below to find out more.

Q: What should I do if I smell gas in my home?

If you smell gas in your home, turn off the gas supply to your home immediately and open windows and doors to ventilate the area. Do not turn on any electrical switches or use any open flames. Evacuate your home and call the gas company or emergency services immediately.

Q: What should I do if I have a sewer backup?

If you have a sewer backup, stop using all water sources in your home immediately to prevent further backup. Then, call in a professional plumber to diagnose and fix the problem. Sewer backups can pose serious health risks and require immediate attention.

Q: What are the signs that my sewer system is not working properly?

There are a few signs that your sewer system may not be working properly. These include slow drains, gurgling noises coming from your pipes, foul odours, and sewage backups. You may also notice wet spots in your yard or basement, indicating a leak in the sewer line.

Q: What should I do in case of a burst pipe?

If you have a burst pipe, turn off the main water supply to your home immediately to prevent further damage. Then, call in a professional plumber to repair the pipe and assess any water damage to your home.

Q: Why does my water heater keep tripping the circuit breaker?

A tripped circuit breaker can be caused by a number of things, including a faulty thermostat, a damaged heating element, or a buildup of sediment in the tank. It’s best to call in a licensed plumber to diagnose and fix the problem.

Q: What should I do if I smell gas near my hot water heater?

If you smell gas near your hot water heater, turn off the gas valve immediately and contact a licensed plumber. Do not attempt to light the pilot light or use any electrical switches or appliances.

Q: What should I do if my water heater is leaking?

If your water heater is leaking, turn off the power supply to the heater and turn off the water supply to the heater. Then, call in a professional plumber to assess and repair the problem. Leaking water heaters can cause serious water damage and even pose a risk of electrical shock, so it’s important to address the problem immediately.

Q: What are the signs that my hot water system is not working properly?

There are a few signs that your hot water system may not be working properly. These include a lack of hot water, strange noises coming from your system, rusty or discoloured water, and leaks around the tank or pipes.

Q: What should I do if my sink/drain is clogged?

A clogged sink can be a real pain in the you-know-what. The first step is to try using a plunger – this can often dislodge the blockage. Put some water in the drain until the drain starts to back up. Put the plunger over the drain outlet and push up and down on the plunger trying to push the force of the water down the drain outlet. Try not to force the water out the side of the rubber on the plunger. When successful the water should flow away.

If that doesn’t work, you can try using a plumbing snake or a mixture of baking soda and vinegar to break up the clog. And of course, if all else fails, you can call in a plumber to get the job done.

Q: What should I do if my toilet is overflowing?

If your toilet is overflowing, turn off the water supply to the toilet by turning the valve behind the toilet. Then, use a plunger to try and dislodge the blockage. If that doesn’t work, call in a professional plumber to diagnose and fix the problem.

Q: My toilet is clogged. What should I do?

A clogged toilet can be a messy and unpleasant problem to deal with, but there are a few things you can try before calling in a professional. First, try using a plunger to dislodge the blockage. If that doesn’t work, you can also try using a plumbing snake to remove the clog. Another option is to pour hot water into the toilet bowl and let it sit for a few minutes to help break up the blockage. If none of these methods work, it’s time to call in the experts.

Q: My toilet won't stop running - what should I do?

This is a common problem that can be caused by a variety of issues. The first thing to check is the flapper – make sure it’s properly seated and not torn. If that doesn’t solve the problem, you may need to replace the fill valve or adjust the float. If that doesn’t fix the issue, you may have a leak in your pipes.

Q: What does it mean when water continually drips into the bowl?

This means the inlet valve, the outlet valve or both need to be replaced or serviced.

Q: How can I prevent emergency plumbing situations?

To prevent emergency plumbing situations, schedule regular maintenance and inspections with a professional plumber. Address any plumbing issues promptly before they become major problems. Also, make sure to properly maintain your plumbing fixtures and appliances and avoid flushing non-biodegradable items down your toilet.
