Disaster averted... gas heater installation

Disaster averted... gas heater installation

A customer called us reporting a smoky room and an ineffective gas heater, apparently.  When we arrived we noticed black soot all over the room and blinds.  She was lucky to be alive!  She was fortunate that the gas heater had not started a fire.  When we disconnected the gas heater and moved it aside we confirmed what we had feared...

Thank You Letter from Malvern East... Typewritten!

It's not often we get a typed thank you letter - with a typewriter - these days from our customers.  We were so impressed we posted this thank you letter above for everyone else to see.  This customer from Malvern East took the time to write to us with his typewriter.  The least we could do was brag about it and thank him.

If you want to have a great experience with a plumber fixing your plumbing issues, call us at Gipps Plumbing.  You don't have to use a typewriter though to thank us.  But if you do, we will very much appreciate it.

Plumbing Disasters, Accidents and Fails!

Plumbing Disasters, Accidents and Fails!

Sometimes people try to fix things themselves to save money, time or their pride.  Inevitably, unless they know what they are doing it could end up in a bigger disaster than what they started out with. 

Here is a compilation of three videos we thought capture the risk of  "Do It Yourself" (DIY) plumbing work.   If you see even a hint of this happening please call us at Gipps Plumbing on 0467 688 004.

Sometimes the team at Gipps Plumbing have to go to places which are dirty, smelly or quite unpleasant.  This is something which is part of doing a great job for our customers.  So, next time you call a plumber and their work environment is a bit tough, maybe a cup of tea and some chocolate biscuits might be a great way to say thank you for a great plumbing job.  

We always appreciate the friendship and care that we get from our customers.

We Sometimes Fix Other People's Mistakes

An example of the shonky work some people do that we are often called to fix up.

An example of the shonky work some people do that we are often called to fix up.

Sometimes we are called out to fix other people's shonky work.  We don't mind doing smaller jobs where others have taken short-cuts.  We are amazed at what other people sometimes get away with.  In the end, all shonky work ends up hurting your reputation.

If you need some shonky or bad plumbing work fixed up... call us.

How To Repair Your Toilet Shut-Off Valve

How To Repair Your Toilet Shut-Off Valve

Sometimes a leaky shutoff valve (on the water supply pipe to the toilet, sink, or other plumbing fixture) is simply turned too far open, meaning too far counterclockwise or to the left. Often, a slight turn in the opposite direction will stop the leak.

Replacing a shutoff valve, if it comes to that, is a fairly simple procedure. The pain comes from having to turn off the water supply for the whole house and draining the water out of the pipes up to the location of the shutoff valve.
