Many Port Douglas plumbers have experience in all aspects of their trade. They will handle everything from blocked drains, smelly drains, burst pipes, gas leaks, blocked storm water lines, hot water repairs, leaking taps and everything in between.

When hiring a plumber in Port Douglas, you should consider the following:

Do they have written guarantees?
Ensure the plumber is licensed and insured.
Check online reviews or ask the plumber for references.

Many homeowners neglect necessary plumbing repairs until there’s an unexpected emergency. While some plumbing issues might seem minor, they may be serious emergencies in the making. Having a reliable plumber doing minor repairs and regular check ups, will save you from paying emergency plumbing rates in the future.

When you want a plumber for an urgent situation, call and describe the nature of the issue in as much detail as possible. The plumber should be able to inform you the price for a call out, but additional costs depend on the nature of the problem and any parts required. You may additionally be charged for travel and parking.

If you’ve previously experienced a dripping or leaking tap, you will see just how much of a nuisance it could be. Rather than allowing it to drip away wasting your water cost, you’ll either have to call up a plumber to carry out a repair.

Blocked drains can be caused by tree roots, food scraps, baking fat, clogged hair, corrosion caused by paint and chemicals, foreign objects, too much toilet paper, leaves, dirt and debris, ground movements, rodent infestations, incorrect pipe installation and ageing pipes.
