Blocked drains or a blocked toilet are a Christmas nightmare
Christmas and New Year holiday emergency plumbing services on the Gold Coast have always been a priority service that Whywait Plumbing Services has guaranteed to provide 24/7.
For the plumbers at Whywait Plumbing the traditional Christmas and New Year holiday period results in attending more blocked toilets, blocked kitchen sinks, blocked showers and blocked drains than any other time of the year.
In many homes, the sewer drains have worked fine all year with only two people living in the house. All over the Gold Coast families and friends descend on homes where the plumbing has worked fine all year, or so everyone thought.
Many homes plumbing and sewer drains are stretched to breaking point with a sudden increase from two to twenty people plus descending on Christmas Day.
The result is overflowing sewage and no flushing toilet, which can be a real party stopper, especially in our summer’s heat.
Warning signs of a potential blocked sewer at Christmas
As I repeatedly warn everyone, all too often, the warning signs of an impending blockage in your drains have been there for months.
The most common warning signs of a looming problem sewer drain or toilet are:
gurgling sounds coming from the toilet or bathroom floor waste or laundry tub
an overflowing drain gully outside the house
foul odours in the bathroom or toilet
Do you have a Christmas plumbing emergency?
If you have your extended family and friends in your home and are experiencing any of the following, then you have an emergency.
No Water or a Burst Pipe – if your household has no running water or has water flooding everywhere, this is an emergency;
Blocked Sewer Drains – Bathroom, Kitchen, Laundry & Toilet blockages overflowing inside or outside your home is an emergency;
Blocked Toilets – a blocked or overflowing toilet is an emergency;
Gas Leaks – if you can smell gas call us immediately as this can mean there is a leak that’s potentially dangerous.
