Drain on Finances: Plumbing Service & Checks
[Messenger Newspapers article – appearing 30/8/17]
Is your house a few decades old or more? Has your water bill gone into the excess zone? Do your pipes make a hammering sound when you turn a tap on? Is water slow to drain away from the shower?
Say yes to any of these questions and you need to call a plumbing expert from Sharpe Group. “Our technicians don’t just turn up and treat the symptoms,” says Sharpe Group spokesman David Sharpe. “They look at the bigger picture and that saves our clients a lot of money in the long run. “For example, they walk across the lawn to see if it is spongy, or if there are bushes and vegetation shooting up near house walls. All these are tell-tale signs of undetected cracked or broken pipework that has become a hidden drain on the family budget.” Adelaide’s clay soils, combined with ageing galvanised pipework, can cause long-term problems. The same applies to household drains, especially those with older earthenware pipes. “These problems increase as winter days get warmer, then a cold snap returns and the soil reacts and moves,” says Mr Sharpe.
Another issue is Adelaide’s frequent mains water failures. A surge in pressure when a street’s water supply is restored often over-stresses ageing galvanised pipes. Sharpe Group plumbing technicians can remedy any problem involving water leaks and drain blockages.
“A householder’s DIY attempt to clear a blocked drain can often end in expensive damage,” says Mr Sharpe. “Our master plumbers are experienced operators and will effectively use mechanical drain cleaners to clear blockages without damaging your pipework.”
Book a Sharpe Group fixed-price plumbing inspection service to identify issues before they become a problem.
