Your Post-Lockdown Plumbers Central Coast Advice

Brian Knock • Oct 12, 2020

According to the guidelines of the 3-Step Framework for a COVID Safe Australia, you can have up to five visitors to your house in addition to your current household members – but before you do, make sure one of those are the plumbers Central Coast residents rely on to get their plumbing in top working order!

Our Central Coast plumbers visit locations all across NSW, and one thing is common to many residences – an increase in home use has resulted in additional strain on plumbing systems and hot water units.

If your plumbing has been copping it throughout the lockdown period, then perhaps it’s time to call for a plumber Central Coast families can trust! Give your plumbing system and hot water units the attention they desperately need and take the time to get everything looked at. If you are or have been spending a lot of time in the house, fixing those blocked drains, leaking taps and banging pipes will go a long way towards safeguarding your family’s hygiene and sanitation, as well as helping to keep everyone and everything running smoothly within your home. So have a look at some of our to-dos listed below, and get in touch with the plumbers Central Coast residents trust – your plumbing will thank you!

Hot water systems installation and repair.

Aside from being essential in winter, hot water showers, baths and laundry washes can help to remove grease, grime and dirt from your hands and body which can be a real breeding ground for bacteria, as well as assisting in the removal of germs and nasties from your next load of laundry.

Have a quick inspection – can you see/hear water leaking from your hot water system, storage tank or anywhere in your house? Is there any sign of worn-out water fittings or strange gurgling noises emanating from your hot water system? For any issues like these, take the time to call your Central Coast plumbers and get it all taken care of immediately.

Gas line repairs and installation.

Restaurants and cafes are now allowed to cater to up-to 10 people, while maintaining an average distance of 1.5m per person. For those who enjoy eating out often, that’s great – but there’s never been a more important time to be able to rely on your own gas stove and oven, and cater to your family from the comfort and safety of your own home. If your gas is slow, or not working as effectively as it should be, it’s time to get in touch with our dedicated gas fitters and plumbers Central Coast residents have come to rely on during this difficult time. Gas oven installations and gas line maintenance are our specialty!

Blocked bathrooms.

Were you or your loved ones able to enjoy a little beauty-therapy session at home during lockdown? Did you know that these pampering sessions can pose some big problems for Central Coast plumbers? Those beauty products, creams and oils often find their way into bathroom plumbing fixtures like drains and sinks, and can quite often result in blockages over time. Take the time to check that these fixtures are free from residue build up before and after every time you engage in a little self-TLC.

Toilet blockages.

Unsurprisingly, toilets have been getting a hiding from families stuck at home during lockdown – and that’s without taking into account the issues that have arisen from the toilet paper crisis that every plumber Central Coast -wide has had to navigate! Sometimes a blocked or unpleasant toilet cant be simply fixed with a plunger, so if you’re having any toilet troubles then please get in touch with the plumbers Central Coast families know and trust today.

Stormwater Systems.

You may be used to dry Winters living on the Central Coast, but with our ever changing environments you can never be too sure! Ask any Central Coast plumbers for advice and they’ll tell you – removing debris like weeds, leaves, and branches from your gutters, downpipes and stormwater drains will save you and your plumber time and money down the track. Nobody wants to deal with the issues that come from sagging roofs and leaky gutters!

Pipes That Have Burst.

Living in Australia, our pipes and plumbing can be affected by temperature swings from the varying seasons, and the associated changes in pressure that come with these. Outdoor pipes and gas lines are especially affected, and you may not know there’s a problem until something goes bad! Don’t wait around for your outdoor pipes to begin leaking – have a look outside your home and check for cracks, warps and leaks, and call a plumber Central Coast houses can rely on. Pipes that have burst can cause serious blockages in your plumbing that could result in flooding or overflows. If you find even a little leak anywhere in your home plumbing system, take action immediately.
