Emergency Plumber Melbourne

Clean water and heating are two vital components of any happy and healthy home in Melbourne, Victoria. These facilities are powered by effective pipes, water tanks, faucets, and sump pumps – but what happens if they start to become less efficient, or worse, break unexpectedly?

At Service Experts, our same-day service is here for all of your emergency plumbing needs. Whether you’re dealing with a burst pipe or your hot water has completely stopped working, we’re available both day and night, weekday or weekend to visit your Melbourne home and safely fix the issue.

When Do I Need An Emergency Plumber?

From fixing a dripping kitchen tap to unblocking toilets, some small repair jobs can be performed without a professional plumber. However, when a serious plumbing problem stops your home from functioning or puts the health of your family at risk, expert help is necessary to stop the situation escalating.                   

For example, while a ruptured pipe doesn’t always pose immediate danger, you should contact an emergency plumbing service as soon as you notice the issue, because it can stop you from accessing clean drinking water.

Unfortunately, plumbing emergencies never occur at convenient times. That’s why having a trusted plumbing expert ready to go as soon as you call is crucial, especially if a pipe bursts during the night or you wake up to no hot water. So, get in touch with Service Experts for same-day emergency plumbing repairs – although unlikely, we’ll even reimburse you $5 for every minute that we are late, and pay $50 if we can’t get to you within 6 hours of your call!

Our Most Common Plumbing Emergencies

With more than two decades of experience in the plumbing industry, there’s no emergency that we haven’t seen before. Some of the most common and urgent issues that we’ve handled include the following:

Burst Pipes

Anything from poor water flow to mould patches or a damp, musty smell may indicate that you have a burst pipe. This water loss causes significant damage to your walls and ceilings, which can potentially begin to weaken the structural integrity of your home.

Stop the situation from becoming dangerous by turning off the tap for your water main and calling a plumbing service to repair the broken pipe straight away.

Hot Water Malfunctions

High-pitched popping sounds usually indicate non-emergency problems such as sediment or buildup, which can be removed with some simple hot water repairs. Call us immediately if you hear a bubbling noise, however, as this is often caused by a more serious problem like high pressure or overheating.

By repairing faulty heating coils and thermal switches, we’re also on hand to fix the issue if your hot water system shuts down completely.

Blocked Gutters

Leaves, twigs, moss, and other debris are among the leading causes of gutter blockages, which prevent proper water management. Moisture may therefore begin to infiltrate your home, damaging any electrical appliances and weakening structural timbers.

We’ll use state-of-the-art drain cleaning tools like hydro jets to clear your gutters, while also installing guards and stormwater pits to provide a more effective drainage solution.

Clogged Sewage System

Blocked sewers aren’t just smelly; they can also spread potentially life-threatening bacteria, viruses, pollutants, and other toxins.

Call Service Experts if you notice your toilet babbling, pooling water, water pooling around the drains, or strange smells coming from the sewage system.

Gas Leaks

A rotten egg or sulphur odour points to a gas leak within your home, which increases the risk of a fire. If you begin to notice these smells, shut off the gas and get some air into your home by opening windows and doors, before quickly evacuating the property.

An issue that’s equally as dangerous is a carbon monoxide leak, which can cause those exposed to lose consciousness and experience seizures. This toxic gas also has no smell or colour, making it harder to detect in your home – that’s why we recommend getting your gas systems and appliances regularly checked out.

Emergency Plumber Melbourne FAQs

Hiring an emergency plumber in Melbourne can cost anywhere from $20 to $51 per hour, depending on the services required and the complexity of the job. At Service Experts, we provide upfront pricing, so you’ll know exactly how much it will cost before the job begins, no matter how big or small.

The Australian Plumbing Code states that any work on sewer or drinking water systems must be completed by a qualified plumber. Jobs such as drain cleaning, residential water filter connection, replacing shower heads, and cleaning ground-level grates can be carried out yourself, but we’d recommend hiring a plumber for the safest and most effective service.

We’d also recommend booking yearly maintenance appointments to check for any small plumbing repairs that could escalate into larger issues, such as water leaks.
