Once again with anything gas make sure to get a licensed gas plumber as it can be dangerous to you and your neighbours to work with gas when you are not an experienced licensed gas plumber. It is recommend that gas hot plates are serviced every 2 years to minimise the chance of gas leaks. Splash and Gas will take any problem seriously, effective and professionally fixing any Gas Hot Plate problems. Or we can install a brand new system with ease if you are upgrading your kitchen.
Whether your looking for a change or just a repair don't worry there are solutions for both, however there are some things to keep in mind. Your proximity to neighbours, which will depend of your location in St James, as some systems can be louder than others. Yes they do make noises. What is better at the end of the day Electric or Gas? We believe Gas is more economical than electric unless you move to a St James heat pump system which is even more cost effective. Splash and Gas source the best systems at the most affordable prices.
We always try to give you options. Obviously every system has pros and cons and you should pick one that suits your needs. call a Splash and gas professional in St Jameson: 0410 217 090 today discuss what your options are. Splash and gas has no call out fee during working hours so we can come measure up and talk to you at your St James home.
When water prices are on the rise (set for 6% rise for next year) and the restrictions on water use as to help us save water. We can't afford to let taps leak and you mightn't think its that much but a leaking tap can lose up to 5 litres a minute. As a whole Perth is one of the highest water users in Australia and we should all be working towards the water corporation goal of by 2030 reducing our use by 15%. St James is working towards this goal, see how it stacks up against other suburbs. Source - https://www.watercorporation.com.au/save-water/check-your-suburbs-water-use
A leaking tap that drips 4 times in a minute can wastes 2.18 litres in a day. So you can see why you want a professional plumber to come have a look at this asap. Take a look at this site if you want to calculate how many litres you could be loosing. http://www.drinktap.org/water-info/water-conservation/drip-calculator.aspx
Leaking taps might not be as dangerous as a Gas leak however it can leave you with a hefty bill if left unfixed over time. DIY is always an option but is it really worth the time effort and undoubtable frustration? especially if you don't have the right tools. Splash and gas are professional plumbers and will have your leaking taps fixed quickly.
Leaking taps are common and can happen in brand new, young and old homes alike of which there is certainly a mix in the St James area. It just makes sense to get this fixed fast. If the cost is what has you worried never fear Splash and gas are affordable and will get to your job in a timely manner. There is no call out fee during week days so you have no need to worry about added cost when you are already worried about spending money. Just get the job done and stop worrying about it.
Emergency plumbing can effect your neighbours too if it is a burst pipe as it can cause damage to close proximity neighbours. Plumbing isn't always considerate of working hours but you can't leave blocked toilets and trust pipes over night as the damage that can lead too is far to great. Even less intense problems need attention as you shouldn't leave them as over time they can cause much worse problems.
You could DIY and fix a leaking or blocked toilet yourself but often it will cause more problems than it is worth. Getting in a professional plumber to fix your toilet plumbing issues just makes sense because we can get the job done fast and probably at less of the cost to you. So don't flush good money down the toilet.
How do you know if there is a problem? Listen out for these noises to help identify common problems:
- Hissing or refilling of the cistern (from the valve and float that hold the water before you flush) that does not seem to stop
- A slow toilet dribble into the pan and buttons that don't pop up easily
Some of the most common problems are leaking toilets, running toilets, overflowing toilets and leaking toilet bases. If it comes to needing a replacement we can do that too.
- What kind of toilet repairs can we do in your St James home?
- Unclog your blocked toilet
- Fix a weak flush
- Fix your slow filling cistern
- Fix a noisy toilet that won't stop running water
Toilets have become essential to modern life and keeping one running isn't hard it just needs a little love from a professional plumber.
