Use The Force In Plumbing

Extra care should be taken to monitor what types of materials are disposed of into the drainage system. Non-decomposing items can cause the most problems even if they are small in nature.

It’s the height of summer Down Under and with it, incidents of bushfires and grass fires throughout the region. With a combination of a dry summer and massive grass growth triggered by heavy rains, the NSW Rural Fire Service regards the 2012-2013 bushfire season as one of the worst ever in decades. While local authorities send out fire safety instructions and implement massive preparations, Sydney plumber Jedi Plumbing recently unveiled the service company’s own guidelines to help NSW homeowners cope with bushfire season and prevent costly emergency plumbing services in the process.

One of the common instructions pointed out by the Rural Fire Service (RFS) and Jedi Plumbing is the need for NSW property owners to clear out debris from roofs and gutters. While cleaning dried leaves from roofs and gutters aims to minimise the risk of fire intensity in the event of a bushfire occurring in the area, Jedi Plumbing adds that the simple property maintenance can also prevent corrosion.

The NSW plumbing service remarks, “It is simple to take steps to stop corrosion in the early stages but costly to replace the guttering if it becomes fully corroded. In addition to that, you should have your septic systems and drains inspected by a professional once a year or, at a very minimum, every three years.”

Jedi Plumbing also cautions homeowners about the dangers of disposing items down the toilet or the sink. The premier plumber Northern Beaches residents prefer explains, “Extra care should be taken to monitor what types of materials are disposed of into the drainage system. Non-decomposing items can cause the most problems even if they are small in nature. These items will sit in the pipes and, over time, as more materials are added, a blockage will occur. A blockage in the plumbing system can potentially mean costly and disruptive repair work.”

A blockage could also spell trouble for residents who happen to have the Static Water Supply (SWS) sign on their properties. The SWS sign, which should be placed in a visible location, is meant to help firefighters source out emergency water supply from properties that have a swimming pool, water tank, creek or dam. A property with an SWS sign needs to maintain water reserve especially during this crucial season. Unchecked blockage in the plumbing system could lead to a serious burst, rendering the property with minimal to no access to water, apart from what Jed Plumbing warns as expensive water damage.

To prevent this scenario, Jedi Plumbing urges NSW homeowners to know the location of their shut off valve. The well-established plumbing service adds, “It is also useful because you could potentially turn this valve off and wait until such a time when you can call your local plumber instead of the emergency number.”

Established in 2009, Jedi Plumbing has increasingly gained favour with NSW residents as it provides high-quality workmanship and top-notch plumbing services like bathroom plumbing, toilet repairs, and gutter cleaning and repair — 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Jedi Plumbing states, “We believe that these are the basics of any plumbing service, which is why we find them easy to provide to you.
