Hiring an Emergency Plumber in Sydney
As much as we’d like to, we just can’t glide through life without any hiccups or speed bumps – it’s this spontaneity that gives us the spice of life, right? Sometimes that spontaneity is good – like bumping into someone at the supermarket and, five years down the track, eventually marrying him or her. Sometimes spontaneity is bad – like when you’ve bought a house with your soulmate and a pipe bursts in the middle of the night when you have to send the kids to swimming practice at the crack of dawn.
It’s at that point where you can’t carefully shop around for a plumber with the best bargain because water is pooling around your feet – timeliness and efficiency is key. That’s where 24/7 emergency plumber come in. Yes, you’ll pay more for their services, but when the service needs to be done at 3am, you’ll understand why those fees come into place.
The aspects of an emergency plumber’s services may include:
- Cleaning and unclogging drains.
- Using professional, state-of-the-art equipment to locate and assess damage and/or blockage in pipes and drains.
- Detecting and repairing gas leaks.
- Detecting and repairing sections of burst water pipes.
- Detecting and repairing broken sewerage pipes
… plus much more.
Emergency services can cost from around $65 per hour to around $95 per hour. While this may seem excessive, keep in mind that you are really paying for a prompt arrival and efficient service so that you can get back to your life and ensure minimal damage to your property. Prepare yourself for the worst before it happens and assess the prices and services available from emergency plumbers before you need one.
