Your leaking taps could be wasting more than just water! We all know a slow drip can quickly add up to a large water bill. If a tap is leaking water, is difficult to turn off, or seized up, it may require urgent attention.

Our team of experienced emergency plumbers carry a wide range of parts like washers, mixer cartridges and replacement taps. Whether you’d like to repair your tap or replace it, we’re here to help.
Our standard tap service starts by of re-seating the combination. This is followed by greasing the spindle and replacing the body washer, jumper valve and o-ring. This makes the tap smooth to operate and provides a lasting fix against leaks. If you have mixer taps, ceramic disc, or quarter turn taps, we are also able to source specialised parts if required.

When it comes to replacing your toilet, picking the right toilet suite is never easy. It can be overwhelming not only choosing between the different styles but also finding a model to suit your pipework configuration. Some things to consider are:
- The style. Close coupled, link suites or back to wall toilet suites?
- The pipework. Either a P trap, S trap or offset pan collar.
- The set out distance. It’s necessary to find a toilet pan with a compatible set out distance from the wall.
Our team is up to date with the latest products. We can offer the best options available to suit your bathroom. With future maintenance in mind, we only install reliable brands which have readily available components.
Water Saving and Water Efficiency Certificates
Following the recent push for water conservation throughout Queensland, many customers have become increasingly water conscious. We offer simple and cost-effective solutions for reducing water. This can include installing water-saving aerators, inline restrictors and water saving shower roses. If significant improvements are required, we can also provide an obligation free quote for water saving tapware and toilets.
Our Brisbane plumbers are fully licensed to provide water compliance reports for rental properties. In most cases, properties are made compliant during inspection by installing water saving aerators or flow discs. In this case, a water saving certificate can be issued straight away. By following the RTA’s water compliance criteria, we ensure your property minimises its waste while maximising its rent potential. This can be done in conjunction with other maintenance plumbing works to minimise cost. For more information, call us or click here to view The Queensland Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Regulations 2009.
If you own a rental premises, you may be able to charge your tenants for their water use. However, this can only be done if you can show the property complies with the rules of the RTA “Rental Tenancies Authority”.
To issue a water efficiency certificate, the property must comply with the following minimum criteria:
- Individually metered for the supply of water (or water delivered by vehicle), and
- Water efficient fixtures (complying with RTA standards), and
- Tenancy agreement stating the tenant must pay for water consumption
For the rental property to be considered water efficient, it must meet the following standards:
- Internal cold water taps and single mixer taps (excluding bath tub and taps for appliances): maximum 9 litres per minute
- Shower heads: maximum 9 litres per minute
- Toilets: dual flush function not exceeding 6.5 litre on full flush and 3.5 litres on half flush. Maximum average flush volume of 4 litres based on average 1 full flush and 4 half flushes
