Get Your Plumbing Ready For Easter

Are you hosting an easter gathering? It’s a good idea to check your plumbing before family or guests come to visit. To get your plumbing ready for Easter, you should ensure that all of your pipes and fixtures are in good working condition. This includes checking for leaks, ensuring that drains are clear, and ensuring that toilets are flushing properly. It’s also a good idea to have a plumber inspect your system to identify any potential issues that may need to be addressed before hosting guests or hosting a large family dinner. Additionally, you should make sure that you have enough hot water for guests.

To Check Your Drains:

  • Run water from all taps for a few minutes to ensure that the water is flowing smoothly.
  • Run water down each drain to see if it flows smoothly and quickly.
  • Check for any strange noises or odours coming from the drains.
  • Check for any leaks or drips around the base of the drain.

To Check for Leaks:

  • Check pipes for visible leaks or damage.
  • Check around sinks, taps, faucets and showerheads for drips or pooling water.
  • Check flexi hoses don’t have leaks, rust spots, bulging sections on the metal exterior or fraying or kinking. (A burst flexi hose, flooding your house in the middle of the night is not something you want to be waking up to).

To Check Your Toilet:

  • Check around the base of the toilet for any leaks or puddles.
  • Check for running water. You can do this by adding a blue loo or a couple of drops of food colouring to the water in your cistern. Leave it a while and come back. If you come back and there is coloured water in your bowl you have a leak between your cistern and toilet.
  • Flush the toilet and check the water is not rising in the bowl and slow to drain.

To Check Your Hot Water System:

Check for any leaks around your hot water system, including the pressure relief valve, pipe and tank to make sure it is not leaking. If it is leaking, contact a licensed plumber to have it repaired or replaced.

  • Fantastic Plumbing lived up to their name. On time, polite, reliable and created confidence in explaining details of my hot water system to one of those husbands who missed the handyman gifts!

    Ian Bridger, Byron

  • Our hot water system was being unpredictable and unreliable, and we weren't sure what the issue was... Conor had it sorted in no time. He was responsive, efficient and helpful - even in the midst of the pre-Splendour rush... We are now enjoying lovely hot water. Thank you!!

    Jacky Morris, Suffolk Park

  • When we recently had a pipe blockage in our investment property in Ballina and our tenant sent us photos we were organizing the fix from NZ. Thankfully we contacted Fantastic Plumbing who located the blockage, jetted it until the pipe was cleared and …. CLEANED UP!!! We were in the process of trying to get a cleaner to the property when Conor sent us photos of the completed work. After speaking to out tenant who couldn’t be happier we saved on the cleaner! If you want no hassels in plumbing do yourself a favour and call Fantastic Plumbing.
