Newstead 4006- Plumbing & Hot Water Systems

Newstead is a riverside suburb that is located 3 km north of the CBD. The north-west portion of the suburb centred on Breakfast Creek Road is predominantly commercial, with the remainder of the suburb now mainly residential. Originally Newstead was an industrial area that included timber yards, asbestos works and wool stores. Remnants of this past can still be seen in the Newstead Gasworks which was established in 1887 as Brisbane’s second gas works. Newtead is an old suburb comprising of established properties and therefore blocked drains, burst pipes, taps and toilets are among the common maintenance plumbing issues we attend to. We also provide a range of specialised services including hot water systems, gas fitting, leak detection, water efficiency testing, CCTV drain camera inspections, backflow prevention devices, thermostatic mixing valves, roofing and much more.

Water Efficiency Testing

If you have a rental property in NEWSTEAD you may be able to charge the tenants for their water consumption. This can only be done if the property complies with the RTA's standards for water charging. Our plumbers can carry out an inspection of the property and test the water flow rates of all the applicable fixtures. If the property complies, a water efficiency certificate will be issued as proof of compliance. In addition, if you are concerned about the water consumption at your home, a water efficiency test can determine which fixtures are wasting water and provide solutions for water saving.
