Your plumbing system is vital to keeping your home comfortably up and running, and is responsible for bringing water to your bathrooms, kitchen, and laundry. A broken system may mean no more showers or baths, toilets won’t flush, and the laundry will begin to pile up. Your plumbing system also brings water to your outdoor areas like the outside hose and garage, so no washing the car or watering the lawn.


Regular maintenance can detect and prevent breakdowns and repairs, but sometimes there’s an emergency situation. Solid items sometimes find their way into your drains and can block water flow, and even too high pressure can damage pipes, causing leaks.

When to Call an Emergency Plumber

There are many situations that require a call to an emergency plumber Melbourne. Maybe a child accidentally dropped a plastic ball or small toy in the toilet and it gets flushed before you even noticed. Or perhaps a visitor flushed items that should have ended up in the trash, like paper towel or feminine products. These kinds of problems arise more often than you may think, and can be devastating to your system. Unfortunately, attempting to clear the blockage on your own can sometimes force the object further into the pipes, making repair more difficult.

Burst or leaking pipes are another time when Metropolitan Melbourne residents call O’Shea plumber for emergency repair. You must turn off your valve to stop the leak from damaging your house and belongings. Since indoor plumbing is fundamental to your everyday life, it is imperative to get this issue repaired immediately.

Increased water pressure may not seem like an emergency situation, but it can actually be very damaging to your plumbing system. Often times when you receive your water from the Melbourne municipality, their plumber may perform repairs on the lines in your area. This can cause pressure fluctuations, including higher than normal pressure. Your plumbing system is only designed to withstand a certain amount of water pressure, and if it is increased too much, your pipes and fittings may burst or leak. It is important to have a plumber fix this issue right away, or risk a broken pipe that floods your house.

Even if the increased pressure does not immediately break or damage a pipe, it could happen at a later time. Imagine returning from a long day at work only to find that increased pressure caused a pipe to burst earlier that morning and the pipe has been flooding your home all day.
