Leaking Taps

Dripping taps are an annoyance that need not be tolerated! Not only are dripping taps painfully frustrating, they’re also a waste of our planets most valuable resource… water!

Common Problems

On The Clock Plumbing skilled technicians service and replace all types of taps every day of the week, so if you’re currently putting up with any of the following symptoms, we can put an end to it for you:

  • Taps that drip
  • Taps that leak around the handle
  • Taps that don’t open all the way
  • Noisy taps
  • Taps that cause ‘water hammer’

There are typically four types of taps commonly seen in Australian homes today and they all experience different problems from time to time.

  • Connector.

    Jumper washer taps

    These taps have a washer inside that over time wear out, causing the tap to drip. Washers can be replaced, along with the o-rings and the spindles can be lubricated to make them open all the way up and work like new.

  • Connector.

    Mixer taps

    Mixer taps are like the taps you’ll often see in a kitchen. They have a single lever on them that control both the hot and cold water flow. Instead of washers, these taps are slightly more complex, comprising of a series of parts that are all designed to work in unison.These taps can be repaired, however due to purchase costs, it normally works out cheaper to replace them with brand new ones.

  • Connector.

    Half turn & quarter turn taps

    As their names suggest, these taps control water flow when rotated either 90, or 180 degrees. They have a series of seals that over time wear out, resulting in dripping, or leaking. Again, these taps can be repaired, or replaced, depending on make and model.

  • Connector.

    Sensor taps

    Sensor taps operate by allowing motion to signal water flow. You’ll commonly see these in restaurants and bars, however they’re becoming very popular in homes as they’re very hygienic due to dirty hands not having to come in contact with the tap in order to deliver water.These taps have an electrical component to them and can often be somewhat more complicated to repair than the other types.

Toilet Repairs

Toilet cisterns have a lot of moving parts and where there’s moving parts, there’s maintenance.
More often than not, issues with toilets are more annoying than an emergency needing immediate attention.

Common Problems
  • Water constantly running into the bowl.
  • Cisterns not filling fast enough.
  • Toilets not flushing correctly.
  • Cisterns that are noisy when filling.
  • Water dripping onto the floor from the cistern.
  • Water dripping onto the floor when flushed.
  • Water leaking from under the toilet.

Burst & Leaking Pipes

There are very few things that can become as destructive to your property as a burst pipe. At On The Clock Plumbing , we’ve been repairing burst and leaking pipes for many years. We’ve seen crazy scenarios where ceilings have collapsed, carpet and floor boards have been destroyed, appliances and furniture have been ruined and so on.

Often a burst pipe happens in an instant, in which case it’s paramount that you call On The Clock Plumbing Immediately to get expert advice over the phone and a technician to attend ASAP.

We’re a 24/7 service provider, which means that no matter the time, or day, your problem is our priority.

Common Problems

For the times when a bust pipe is gradual, it’s just as important to get that problem addressed. Water Leaks can become very serious if they’re not attended to, however by being proactive and acting at even the smallest signs of a potential problem, you could prevent an impending disaster.

Some of the tell tale signs of a burst, or leaking pipe are:

  • Dampness, or discolouration of carpet (especially in areas near bathrooms, laundries and kitchens).
  • Discolouration, or strange marks appearing on ceilings.
  • Damp and musky smells.
  • Signs of water anywhere (including light fittings in ceilings).
  • Flakey, or scaly paint.
  • Poor water pressure – Hissing sounds behind walls.

Leak Detection

Expert Leak Detection prevents disasters!
In an emergency water leak scenario, the one thing that can make, or break the entire situation is a combination of expertise and equipment.

Water leaks can often start small, but in no time turn into a complete disaster, so addressing the problem in the early stages is often critical to the success of the outcome.

Common Problems

If you have signs of a leak on your premises, then give us a call today and let one of our technicians investigate the situation before it becomes a problem.

  • Dampness, or discolouration of carpet (especially in areas near bathrooms, laundries and kitchens).
  • Discolouration, or strange marks appearing on ceilings.
  • Damp and musky smells.
  • Signs of water anywhere (including light fittings in ceilings).
  • Flakey, or scaly paint.
  • Poor water pressure – Hissing sounds behind walls

Roof & Gutter Leaks

On The Clock Plumbing provides effective solutions for all types of leaking roof and leaking gutter. Roof and gutter problems can give you trouble so it is crucial to take care of them at the right time. In an emergency situation, we can send one of our experienced and certified roof plumbers to inspect and repair roof and gutter problems. We provide roofing and guttering plumbing services in Sydney.

Common Problems
  • Blocked gutters
  • Leaky roofs and gutters
  • Lack of proper roof and gutter maintenance
  • Normal wear and tear of roof and gutter

Water Filters

Water is an important, life sustaining part of everyday life and is essential for keeping healthy in many ways, but if you’re drinking it straight from the tap you could be compromising your health.

What you probably didn’t know is that when you drink tap or bottled water, it’s quite likely that you‘re digesting a lot more than you were aware of including chlorine, fluorine compounds, Trihalomethanes (THMs), assorted hormones, pesticides and even minute traces of prescription drugs

  • Filtered water simply tastes better than tap water! That’s a great reason alone.
  • Filtered water is more affordable than bottled water. Water filters provide an immediate source of clean water that costs much less than bottled water. You can save up to $2.95 per litre!
  • Drinking water is essential to your health and is especially important for children and water filters provide the healthiest water for their developing immune systems.
  • Water filters are effective at removing chlorine and chlorine byproducts, which reduces the risk of rectal cancer, colon cancer, and bladder cancer.
  • By removing cryptosporidium and giardia from drinking water, filtered water reduces the risk of gastrointestinal disease by more than 33%.

Backflow Prevention

Is your property safe from water contamination?

Back flow occurs when there is a pressure indifference in a water supply that results in contaminated, or unclean water being drawn back into the domestic water supply. The water that arrives at our taps has been through a cleansing process, which is what makes it safe to consume, however there are scenarios where this supply becomes compromised.

Typically back flow happens as a result of ‘siphonage’. Siphonage occurs in scenarios where there is a build up of pressure at a given source, greater than the pressure in the pipes.

Common Problems
  • Bathtubs & showers, where there is an extension on the water outlet that can be submerged. This could be an extension on the bath spout that you use to clean the kids, or even a shower head on a hose.
  • Laundry tubs and that have spout extenders.
  • Kitchen sinks that have a retractable hand piece.
  • Car washing bays.
  • Mechanical and service rooms.
  • Garbage areas where a hose is used to wash out bins.
  • Swimming pool areas where a hose can reach the pool.

All of these areas are a potential ‘back flow risk’ which means that if there is not adequate measures taken, both you and your family are at risk of consuming contaminated water.

I had Brad and Daniel from On The Clock Plumbing relocate my water meter, fix a broken pipe and install a new front tap. These 2 guys were on time, prompt and did an amazing job. They were neat, professional and true gentlemen when talking to my wife about what needed doing. I have no hesitation in recommending Brad and Daniel if you need any plumbing work done, they do a great job at a reasonable price.

Called On The Clock Plumbing after reading all the positive reviews. I needed a trustworthy plumbing company to look after maintenance with some of my rental properties and so far I've had nothing but positive outcomes. When you don't have a lot of time on your hands you need reliable contractors and I highly recommend On The Clock Plumbing. I would describe their service as prompt, reliable, trustworthy, and better yet competitive $$. Most importantly and the one thing I've been looking for in a plumbing company that is hard to come by, not needing to call them back, as the jobs have been done right the first time. Thanks for your ongoing excellent service.

Brad and Daniel were completely professional, helpful and excellent workers from start to finish! They diagnosed and fixed the initial problem very efficiently. They explained and provided a detailed quote for a permanent solution. They fitted gas to a room with difficult access and only charged the original very reasonable quote though the job was clearly more difficult than initially thought. They were thoroughly polite, friendly and great to deal with!

The team at On The Clock Plumbing recently assisted in replacing our hot water system over the weekend and we could not be happier with the result. We called the team on Friday afternoon with an urgent request to which they responded swiftly and professionally by answering any questions we had with transparency and provided a quote with full disclosure of how much the job would cost to fix within a few hours of the call. The quote was very reasonable for the amount of work that was to be completed.The plumber Tom arrived on time on Saturday who was very well presented and had an outstanding politeness which is rare amongst busy Sydney-siders nowadays. The job was completed with absolute care and diligence that we had not seen from previous plumbers in which you were able to tell that he was extremely experienced and had an eye for detail- he even swept up afterwards!The workmanship was second to none and we will not hesitate to call On The Clock Plumbing in the future!
