What plumbing tasks require a professional, licensed plumber?

Most home owners or have a few essential tools on hand to cope with minor plumbing emergencies that may just need a little elbow grease and a plunger to work as intended. If you’re handy around the house, you can generally tackle a small repair such as changing out a worn washer or replacing a drain cover. However, bigger plumbing repair jobs need professional attention. Trying to repair some common issues such as slow drains or leaking toilets could lead to bigger problems later if not done properly the first time.

Do you offer home plumbing maintenance services as well as emergency plumbing?


Regular home plumbing maintenance is the best way to avoid more problematic plumbing emergencies.

Because many issues with your pipes can sneak up on you, a thorough inspection is the key to catching small plumbing problems before they grow into an expensive emergency that may cause damage to your property. Hidden leaks can also cause structural damage, drain blockages can lead to flooding and roof issues can lead to widespread water that seeps into plaster or contribute to mould growth – a constant battle in our tropical environment.

The Cairns council website also has some great tips and information on their water supply and also the plumbing services they are responsible for in the Cairns region such as permits, planning applications, wastewater management etc.
