Top 8 Signs You Might Need A Residential Plumber In Wynnum

If you find yourself confronted with a plumbing problem, trying to deal with it on your own can be tricky. The reason is that when smells start emanating from your bathroom, or you hear banging sounds in your pipework, or bubbling noises when using the tap, it's usually indicative of an underlying and often more complex problem. For this reason it always pays to contact your local Wynnum plumber. With this in mind, here are the top 8 signs that people should call out a plumber right away.

Backed up pipework

If you frequently experience backed up drains or sewers then chances are you have a blocked sewer line or a broken pipe. Unless you know exactly what you're doing, then contact an experienced plumber who can help. 

Poor water quality

Is your water a cloudy colour or does it have a musty smell? If the answer is yes then chances are you have deteriorating pipework. While pipes may not have broken or burst yet, this is often an early sign that disaster is just around the corner. 

Noisy pipework

In some cases when pipework bangs it's just the initial water flow going through. In this case it isn't always a cause for alarm. However if the noise persists or gets worse it could indicate that you have loose parts or weak spots that need repairing.


Let's face it, sinks get clogged. Usually however it's rectified with a quick 'once over' with the plunger. However if it persists or the blockage doesn't seem to disappear, then this is usually indicative of a blockage further down the sewer system. An experienced Wynnum plumber will help to unravel the mystery. 

Bubbling water

If you hear bubbling noises after you've flushed the toilet or used the tap, this is often an early indication of broken or faulty pipework. By contacting a plumber early, they can get to the cause of the problem and fix it before it escalates.

Rise in your water bill

Have you noticed an increase in your water bill over the last few months that you can't account for? If this is the case, then it could point to a leaking pipe. Did you know for example that even the tiniest pinhole just 1 mm in diameter can lose up to 20 litres of water a day? If your pipework is buried under ground, then it could be weeks or months before you notice a difference.

Low or zero water pressure

If you have no water at all and your water supply hasn't been cut off, then nine times out of ten it's a broken pipe. Moreover if you normally have good water pressure and one day you find that your water pressure is poor, then this could also be a sign that something isn't right with your plumbing.

Soggy patches in your garden

If you notice that certain patches of your garden are constantly water logged despite the fact that it hasn't rained for weeks, this may indicate a burst or badly leaking pipe. Remember if it's on or under your property, then the responsibility falls with you or your plumber to repair it.
