Water

Backflow-Provention-Tester
Backflow device installation, testing, and reporting
Backflow occurs when water flows in the opposite direction to that which it should, causing water from your property to enter back into the utility service mains, causing potential contaminants to spread into the water system. This allows adulterated water to spread to other users. Backflow devices are installed to stop any contaminants from entering the water supply, and can be a legal requirement depending on the level of hazard represented at a property. Backflow devices must be installed and periodically tested by an authorised backflow tester to ensure safe and efficient operation. We are qualified backflow device installers and testers, and can provide you with all appropriate reporting regarding the operation of the devices.
Hot water unit installation and service
We install, replace, and repair any brand of hot water system; whether gas, electric, or solar. As part of our service we can assist you in selecting the correct sized hot water service to suit your needs, ensuring efficiency and savings on energy and water costs. We are the suppliers of major hot water system brands, such as Rinnai, Aquamax, and Rheem. Additionally, we offer same day supply and installation for any unit.
burst-pipes

Leaking pipes can result in damage to your property over time, and any signs of water leaking onto the premises should be addressed as soon as possible. If a burst pipe is left unattended, it can result in the need to repair other parts of your property, as water can affect plaster, carpet, and woodwork.

Signs you may have a leaking or burst pipe include:
  • Dampness or water appearing on walls or ceilings
  • Discolouration or markings on carpets or ceilings
  • Paint becoming flakey
  • Reduction in water pressure
  • Hissing sounds behind walls
We offer 24/7 Emergency Services and can promptly attend a leaking or burst pipe whenever required. We aim to detect and repair with a high level or responsiveness.
Water installation
Water installation is an essential part of the plumbing process when building a new property, or renovating one. This can include processes such as installing water meters or completing a pipe rough in, which is the process of laying out the basic lines of pipework, while the walls are still exposed, without making the final connections.
Solar Hot Water Unit Installation
Solar hot water systems provide a number of benefits. Though the initial set-up cost can be higher in comparison to other forms of energy, they are the most economical to operate, potentially saving you up to 80% off your annual energy bills. Another benefit is the reduction in your footprint on the environment, as solar powered hot water systems drastically reduce greenhouse gas emissions. We install roof mounted solar panels, and a water storage tank. The panels absorb the sun’s rays and convert them into energy, passing them into the storage tank, heating the stored water. The system can be complemented with gas or electric solar boosters, ensuring you have hot water at all times, even during periods of low sun.
taps-2

Over time, taps can begin to leak for various reasons, depending on which kind of tap you have. In Australia, we generally use four varieties of taps.

The most common tap we see in Australia is the classic Cross Handle Spindle tap. This tap contains jumper valves, more commonly known as washers, which wear out over time, resulting in water dripping from the tap. We can replace washers and service the other components in the tap, such as o-rings and spindles, which will result in your tap operating like new. Another set of common taps are Half Turn and Quarter Turn taps. As the name suggests, these taps rotate a minimal amount (either 90 or 180 degrees) between full flow and closed valve. Rather than washers, these taps usually contain ceramic disks, which are specific to the manufacturer of the tapware, and require specialised tools and procedure to repair. We assess your Half Turn and Quarter Turn taps, and provide you with a recommendation on whether it’s best to service or replace the entire unit. Mixer taps, also known as lever taps, are commonly used in kitchens today. They usually have a single lever on them, allowing you to blend the water temperature accordingly. Mixer taps operate with cartridges, rather than washers, and require specialised tools to access and replace. The cartridge replacement can often be more costly than replacing the entire tap, so we will assess the leak and provide you with the most economical and efficient recommendation. Finally, sensor taps are another popular form of tap seen around Australian homes and businesses, though more commonly seen in commercial settings. Their popularity in commercial settings can be attributed to the level of hygiene they deliver during operation. Sensor taps engage via motion, and do not require hand contact in order to turn them on or off. Because they contain an electrical component, they can be more complex to repair. However, we have the technology and expertise to repair them. In addition to these four taps, there is another that is beginning to emerge around both commercial and domestic settings. These taps can instantly produce boiled, chilled, ambient, and even sparkling water, and are extremely convenient for the user. Currently, the two major manufacturers of these units in Australia are Zip Tap and Billi. We have undergone extensive training from these companies in how to service and repair their systems.
Tap installation
We install and replace all types of taps, including spindle and mixers taps. We can supply and install any brand of tap.
thermostatic-mixing-valve

Thermostatic mixing valve installation, testing, and reporting>

Thermostatic mixing valves regulate the temperature of water flowing into different taps within a property. The reason for this is to prevent water temperatures that are exceedingly hot from flowing out of a tap and potentially injuring the user. A thermostatic mixing valve automatically calculates the input flows of hot and cold water to ensure an output with a constant temperature. Under Australian legislation, hot water must be delivered at a temperature no warmer than 50 degrees celsius on residential properties, and 45 degrees celsius in operations such as schools and hospitals. We are qualified Thermostatic Mixing Valve installers, and along with installing the valves, we are also able to test and report on them, which is required at intervals no longer than 12 months under legislation.

toilets
Signs you have a toilet in need of repair can include:
  • Leaks
  • Constantly running water in the bowl
  • Noisy cisterns.
  • Large water bills
The cause of these issues can vary, which is why our team have the extensive tools and training to diagnose and repair the root of the issue. In the rare case your toilet is irreparable, we will always provide the most efficient and economic solutions to you.
leak-detection WATER

Signs of water leaks include: damp wall, ceiling, or carpet patches, water pouring down from parts of your property, high water bills, low water pressure, and hissing sounds coming from behind your walls. The source of these leaks can be difficult to determine, as they are often concealed behind walls or underground.

We engage the most advanced sonar water leak detection technology available to locate the source of the leak. This equipment allows us to find problem areas in any building type, from homes, to factories, to multiplexes. After detecting the leak, we act promptly to provide you with a solution and repair the situation to prevent any further damage to your property.
