The kitchen is the heart of your home.

Don’t Ignore These Warning Signs
It’s easy to miss small plumbing problems in your kitchen. Whether it’s a slowly leaking tap or a kitchen sink that takes a little too long to drain, it can be tempting to put off calling an expert.
After all, a little excess water can’t be too bad, right? Wrong!
If you spot any of the following warning signs, you’ll need to act fast. Water can cause significant structural damage behind the walls of your kitchen, and waiting too long can be the difference between a quick fix, and a seriously expensive repair bill.
We’re Experts When It Comes To Common Kitchen Plumbing Problems
There’s nothing worse than coming home to a dishwasher that’s leaking dirty water all over your kitchen tiles. Or a sink that’s so clogged it won’t drain (no matter how long you leave it). Residential plumbing problems have the potential to spiral out of control quickly.
At Fluid Plumbing, we specialise in the kitchen obstacles that get in the way of your everyday routine. There’s never a good time for an emergency, but there is a good solution – and here’s how we repair some of your most common kitchen catastrophes.
It’s tempting to rinse your plates into the sink before popping them in the dishwasher, but your sink is more fragile than it appears. Excess grease, oil, and food debris can get stuck in your pipes, clinging to the walls and preventing debris from passing. The result is a blocked pipe that can’t drain.
Fluid Plumbing Solution: We provide video inspections and specialist tools to identify the blockage, and clear excess debris.
A leaking tap might not seem like a catastrophe, but over a 12-month period a leaking tap can send 9,000 litres of water down the drain (and that’s coming off your water bill). Leaks can also permeate underneath your skin, causing damage and warping to timber, or weakening the structure of your home.
Fluid Plumbing Solution: We’ll look for the culprit – from a blown seal to a faulty o-ring, damaged washer to cracked cartilage – and fix the problem fast.
Your dishwasher is supposed to be cleaning your plates and cutlery, not spraying your floor with water every time you turn it on. Our team is highly skilled at identifying faults within kitchen appliances (from dishwashers to dryers and fridges), and can help find the source of your problem before lasting damage is done.
Fluid Plumbing Solution: We’ll search for the cause of your damaged dishwasher. This may be a broken float switch, damaged spray arms, leaky door gaskets, or drain hose leaks. No matter the problem, our fully stocked mobile van means we’ve always got the tools and the team to help.
How Much Does Kitchen Plumbing Cost?
A kitchen plumber’s rate depends on the plumbing problem at hand. A quick fix, like a damaged o-ring, will cost less than a ruptured pipe behind the walls of your kitchen.
As an average, expect to pay between $80 to $120/hour for a kitchen plumber. However, there are a range of factors that will influence your total price including the complexity of the job, the specific problem to be rectified, and the urgency of the problem.

How Hard Is It To Move Plumbing In A Kitchen?
Moving kitchen plumbing is very difficult if your house is on a slab foundation. Water pipes can often be rerouted through walls or ceilings, especially if you use flexible PEX pipe. However, because the drain needs to have pitch and be lower than the fixture, it requires cutting and jackhammering through the slab.
