St Lucia 4067 - Plumbing & Hot Water Systems

Just 4 kilometres from the Brisbane CBD is the leafy suburb of St Lucia which includes St Lucia South. Due to the suburb comprising of mainly residential properties and its close proximity to our office, St Lucia is one of the suburbs that our plumbers frequent the most. This is also compounded by the high number of rental properties situated in the vicinity of the University of Queensland which is also located in St Lucia. Many houses and apartments within St Lucia are in close proximity to the Brisbane River making it a popular suburb for many professionals.

The area of St Lucia was originally part of Indooroopilly and later part of the suburb of Toowong. The name St Lucia was derived from the name of a sugar plantation in the area in the 1800s and when it was later subdivided, the name St Lucia remained for the subdivision.  The historic primary school, Ironside State School, opened in St Lucia in 1870 however at this time it was known as Toowong State School.  It was later renamed to Ironside after the neighbouring estate. St Lucia is an education precinct due to its close proximity to the University of Queensland and many of the surrounding schools. St Lucia also has a number of heritage listed sites including the Great Court at the University of Queensland, the Union College, Langer House and Vida and Jayne Lahey’s House.

Working extensively in this suburb has provided our tradesmen with a depth of knowledge on the plumbing issues associated with the area. For example, one such common issue in St Lucia is the high water pressure. To combat excessive high water pressure to a property a common solution is to install a pressure reduction valve. This can not only reduce the pressure of the water but can also provide the additional advantaging of assisting to reduce water consumption.
