Paul's Plumbing Tips
Tip #3

 Did you know that a build up of moisture in or around the home can attract TERMITES?

There are many different reasons that excess moisture can build up under or next to a building including:

  • leaking pipes
  • a dripping hot water system
  • poor drainage
  • irrigation placed inappropriately and
  • gutters that are in poor repair.

If you notice a leaking tap or poor drainage around the home be sure to act quickly to avoid complications related to termites.

 

 
Tip #2

Where possible avoid using cistern and toilet cleaning/deodorizer tablets.

When placed in the cistern, the cleaning product causes deterioration of the rubber seals, leading to premature leaking of your toilet.

The plastic holders (containing the cleaning tablets) that are placed in the toilet bowl can often fall out and cause a blockage, leading to unnecessary plumbing costs.

Although the products themselves promise to create a super clean & fresh smelling toilet they can often cause more damage than you think!

 
Tip #1

During storm seasons ensure your gutters are free from foliage, debris & dirt to guarantee effective drainage.

If gutters are unable to perform the job for which they were designed, water can find its way into unwanted areas and you may find yourself up for unnecessary expenses.

Please always ensure that safety is your first priority when attempting to clean your gutters!

Paul's Plumbing Tips

Tip #8

Consider arranging a water audit as an additional method to help track your water usage & identify equipment & methods to reduce your consumption rates.

Did you know:
- a water-efficient washing machine may use only one-third the water of an inefficient model
- a standard dual flush toilet uses a quarter the amount of water of a single-flush toilet
- a standard showerhead may use up to 25L of water/minute compared to as little as 7L /minute when using a water-efficient shower head.

A water audit is a service that Hayes Plumbing QLD offers to assess where households can save water. Once Paul has tested your current level of water usage you will better understand the benefits of using WELS rated water saving devices eg. aerators & flow restrictor valves.  You will receive a full report that details the current level of water usage within your home & the reductions when the recommended equipment has been installed.

If you are a landlord please be aware schemes are in place that allow you to pass all water charges onto your tenants once specific water efficiency criteria have been met. Please go to www.rta.qld.gov.au for more details or ask your property manager to contact Paul to conduct a water audit at the premises.
