Corroded Galvanised Pipe - Wynnum West

Written by Ryan Old

Corrosion on galvanised water pipes can cause a lot of issues with your plumbing. One plumbing issue in particular is related to leaks in the pipes. As galvanised pipes rust from the inside out, the corrosion is not noticeable until the area of the pipe has completely worn through. A fine leak can cause a small spray of water to emit from the pipe, often going undetected, resulting in excess water bills. One such leak was from a client in Wynnum West. This leak was from the tee join in the pipe where the pipe was at it's thinnest, and although not resulting in visible damage, over time a persistent wet patch on the ground near the join became noticeable.

Gutter Replacement - Wynnum West

Written by Ryan Old

 Our Queensland summer rain storms are a true test for the guttering of a house. Over time the gutter can rust and then leak in heavy downpours. Regular checking of the gutters will indicate any places that require repairs, removing the need to completely replace the gutter. Ensuring that there is sufficient downpipes also assist in ensuring that the gutters won't overflow in our storm season.  We recently had a call from a lady in Wynnum West with leaking gutters overflowing gutters in these heavy storm seasons.

Plumbed in Fridge - Wynnum West

Written by Ryan Old

Many newly built houses now have plumbing installed in the kitchen for the installation of a plumbed in fridge. Having the convenience of cold filtered water and ice dispensed directly through the fridge is a convenience a lot us wish for, but the majority of the older houses do not have the required plumbing to facilitate this convenience. One such customer from Wynnum West called with this issue. Their older style house didn't have the necessary plumbing to tap into the back of the fridge.
