General Plumbing

At Fluid Plumbing and Gas Services, we’ve been in operation for over 12 years in Canberra providing all types of plumbing services to homes and businesses.

Bathroom Plumbing

With constant water usage, it’s no wonder the bathroom is the most common call-out for most plumbing companies.

Kitchen Plumbing

It might seem like everything runs on autopilot in your kitchen when water appears at the turn of a tap and vanishes down the kitchen sink.

What Are The Most Common Residential Problems?

A busy home can place pressure on your plumbing, and that can lead to break-downs, malfunctions, and damage.

We often get called in when a catastrophic problem has occurred, like a ruptured pipe or a kitchen appliance that’s stopped working. However, some of the most common domestic plumbing problems are smaller and more difficult to notice.

Common problems include:

  • Leaking taps

  • Blocked drains or pipes

  • Leaking showerheads

  • Leaking toilets

  • Low water pressure

  • Hot water system problems

  • Roof leaks

  • Back-up sewerage problems

However, in some instances, an entire plumbing system might need to be replaced. The network of pipes bringing clean water in and removing wastewater can wear out over time and at some stage, you can’t just patch up the weak spots anymore.

As specialists in fault finding, repair, maintenance, and installation, you can rest easy knowing there’s a fast and affordable solution to any problem from a drain clogged with hair to a basement that’s quickly filling with water.

How Long Does It Take To Fix the Damage in my Home?

This depends on the problem you’re experiencing. Naturally, a damaged o-ring in your bathroom faucet will be a quicker fix than a mysterious pool of water seeping up through your kitchen tiles.

A member of our team will be able to quickly diagnose your plumbing issues and offer a quick and speedy resolution. It’s easy to come across a plumbing problem in your home and enter ‘panic mode’, so here are some of the warning signs you’ve got plumbing issues that should be quickly diagnosed:

  • Water seeping from under the toilet seat

  • Dampness underneath the kitchen sink
  • Loose tiles in the kitchen or bathroom
  • Bathtub leaks and damaged tile caulk
  • Water pooling in the base of the shower
  • Stains on the ceiling below the bathroom

More complicated plumbing challenges may take longer to fix, for example a damaged pipe in the wall behind your bathroom. Depending on the location of the damage and the severity of the break, repairing pipes can take anywhere from 15 minutes to several hours.

As a general rule, smaller bursts and leaks tend to be fixed quicker than larger problems and breakdowns. If you’re looking for fast and efficient plumbing help, reach out to a member of our team for an obligation-free quote today.

How to Prevent Residential Plumbing Problems in your Home

As much as we love supporting our local clients, we’d prefer not to see you!

Spotting plumbing problems before they spiral out of control can help keep repairs and maintenance to a minimum, which is great for your household budget. Although some plumbing issues are unavoidable, there are tips and tricks you should know to minimise your chance of a catastrophe.

Here are 7 ways to prevent plumbing problems in your home:

#1 – Know where your shut-off valve is located: If a catastrophic leak occurs, knowing how to turn off your water main can save you thousands of dollars in damages.

#2 – Don’t flush everything: Your toilet isn’t a garbage bin, it’s for toilet paper only (even flushable wipes can cause problems)

#3 – Keep food out of the sink: Avoid rinsing oil, grease, and food scraps down the kitchen sink to avoid blockages.

#4 – Don’t ignore small leaks: A dripping tap can waste 9,000 litres of water a year, so catch small problems before they grow.

#5 – Avoid puncturing pipes: Planning a little home renovation? Use a stud finder to avoid placing a nail through a pipe.

#6 – Watch for signs of water leaks: Look for unpleasant smells, unexplained dampness, rising water bills, and pools of water.

#7 – Keep your local Canberra plumber on speed dial: You never know when you’ll need emergency help, so add 04 1116 9327 to your phone (that’s us!)

How Much Does Residential Plumbing Cost in Canberra?

We understand the importance of staying on top of household bills and budgets. That’s why we offer transparent prices with no “hidden fees” or charges that sting you when the job is done.

As an average, a residential plumber in Canberra charges an hourly fee/rate, plus a call-out fee, as well as costs to cover parts and equipment. Hourly rates range from $70 to $200, with the average landing around $80/hour plus $50 – $100with call-out fees.

The more complex your plumbing needs, the higher you’ll typically pay. That means a new network of pipes for a home renovation project will set you back more than a quick repair on a toilet that won’t stop running.

At Fluid Plumbing, we don’t think a bathroom fix should cost you an arm and a leg. With competitive prices and premium service, you get the help you need at a price that works for you.
