Turn the water off first!The client, located in Connolly, urgently needed a Plumber in Joondalup when a rusted, worn flexible hose burst under their kitchen sink. Fortunately they did think to go and turn the water off before ringing for a plumber in Joondalup or taking the video! It was lucky the customer was home when this burst occurred. They were able to quickly assess the situation and call Calvin’s Plumbing & Gas, a reliable plumber in Joondalup, to repair it. This meant they didn’t have to have their water off for very long. As you can see from the video in just a minute or two the water from the burst pipe had filled bowls and dishes in the cupboard. It had also begun overflowing onto their slate floor. (Thank goodness there was no carpet nearby either.)
Avoid emergencies with regular inspection and maintenancePotential damage to cupboards, kitchen appliances or flooring can be avoided by regular inspection and maintenance. Take a look at the flexible hoses throughout your home. These are located under sinks, basins and next to your toilet. Are they starting to wear and rust like the ones in this customer’s home? In the photo below you can see the main burst as well as other rust spots forming along the hose.
This was a disaster waiting to happen. Fortunately Calvin is very experienced in repairing bursts and leaks. He was able to fix the problem quickly so the customer could have their water turned back on.
It can be inconvenient to have to find an available plumber in Joondalup urgently.
