Geelong plumbing FAQ
How can I reduce my energy bills?
If you enjoy a nice long shower on a cold winter’s morning, you can save money and energy by installing a gas or solar hot water system in your home. Not only will your energy bill decrease, but you will also be doing your part to help reduce carbon emissions and prevent further global warming.
Installing a water-saving showerhead can also help reduce your home or business’s water consumption.
One last water saving initiative is to install a dual-flush toilet, meaning you use much less water on average per flush than a single-flush toilet.
How do you unblock drains?
Whether you have a blocked toilet, sink or shower waste, or you have a sewer or stormwater blockage, we have a blocked drains plumber in Geelong to help you. We’ll also travel to Werribee and along the Surf Coast.
At CallUs Plumbing & Roofing we use an electric drain-cleaning machine for clearing a toilet blockage or blocked sewer drains. It has a steel flexible rod with a cutter on the end that cuts and removes tree roots or any other obstacle in the drain.
Another machine we use is a “hydrojet“. This works by sending high-pressure water through a hose inserted into the blocked drain. This cuts and removes obstacles inside the sewer drain.
If you have ongoing drain problems, we would use a sewer drain camera to locate exactly where there might be a pipe out of alignment, broken pipe, root mass or other foreign obstacle in the drain.
What steps can I take to ensure that my plumbing problem is completed as quickly and cost-effectively as possible?
At CallUs Plumbing & Roofing we have the experience to determine what the problem is and repair it ourselves. However, there are a number of steps you can take that might help speed up the process and ensure your money is well-spent.
If you need your blocked drains repaired, it might help if you can tell your local plumber about the recent history of the drain. For example: “Have I changed how I run things down the drain?” Your thoughts might help the plumber diagnose the problem and might prevent you from doing it again.
Get as much knowledge from your plumber as you can. When the drain is fixed, ask if there is anything you can do differently so it doesn’t happen again. If it’s a recurring pattern, then the question for the plumber is: “Do I have a system problem?” If so, the plumber can tackle the root problem instead of the symptoms.
