Our Wallsend plumbers can get to the core of the problem, with the minimum of fuss and disruption to your home or business. Quickly establishing the cause, unblocking the drain, and carrying out any maintenance work necessary so that it doesn’t happen again.
There’s nothing as inconvenient or as smelly as a blocked drain or sink, but fortunately aided by sophisticated CCTV camera and locator technology, our team will solve your problems for you.
How can you prevent Blocked Drains?
Ever heard of a “Fatberg”?
This is the term currently used to describe a mass of fat, oil, grease, wet wipes, and so many other foul items that can accumulate in our domestic drainage systems. In fact, due to the smaller size, domestic drains can block up faster and more often than mains sewers.
Carrying out regular plumbing inspections and drain cleaning, yearly is recommended, can prevent fatbergs in your home sewer system.
You can prevent blocked drains and keep your plumbing healthy by only using it for what it is designed for – efficiently removing grey water (water from the sink, shower, bath, and laundry) and black water (from the toilet) from your home.
Drains are not rubbish bins. You can’t dispose of all manner of household rubbish down your sink or toilet and expect it to just wash away. Most of it will end up blocking your drains causing your very own fatberg.
What not to dispose of down the drain?
Wet wipes – no not they are NOT ‘flushable’, regardless of what the packet says. This includes – toilet wipes, baby wipes, bathroom/kitchen/BBQ/cooktop cleaning wipes, those little hand wipes they give you in fast food restaurants, etc. Keeping these items out of your drains will help to ensure your drains remain free of the dreaded fatberg.
With Wallsend Plumbing Services, we will take care of your drain or pipe blockage in a professional and effective manner. We’re the plumbers you can trust! If you are experiencing a problem, our licensed plumbers offer affordable solutions. Our Wallsend team is equipped with the highest quality technology in order to cause minimum disruption to your home and day-to-day lives.

Electric Hot Water Systems
Many homes use electric storage hot water systems to provide abundant, reliable hot water. Many brands are stepping up to create energy efficient storage options which make upgrading or replacing your current hot water heater with a new system easy.
Off-peak options allow you to connect your water heater to cheaper tariff options saving money reducing home water heating costs. Using off-peak power could mean you need a larger water tank to ensure your home doesn’t run out of hot water. If you need to have a new electric hot water heater installed and you want to talk through these things with a hot water systems expert, contact Wallsend Plumbing. Electric instantaneous water heaters are also available.
Solar hot water systems heat water utilising the ample free solar energy from the sun using a flat-plate or evacuated tube systems. The storage tank can be either roof mounted (close-coupled) or ground mounted (split) and backed up with either electric or gas booster for cloudy days.

Why choose Gas hot water?
Natural gas is one of the cheapest, most efficient ways of generating heat energy. As such, gas hot water systems are generally some of the best, most cost-effective and reliable hot water heaters available. If you’re already connected to the Natural gas network, switching over to a gas hot water system might be a very good decision. Especially if you currently own an electric hot water heater, as they are the most expensive hot water systems to run.
At Wallsend Plumbing, we can repair, replace or supply and newly install your gas hot water heater. We specialise in all well-known and trusted gas hot water heater manufacturers. Liquid petroleum gas (LPG) bottles are an alternative to natural gas – but can cost significantly more and you need to regularly order delivery to ensure you don’t run out.
A hot water storage tank is a well-insulated tank designed to store hot water. Most domestic hot water storage tanks also do the job of heating the water they contain, although in some systems (such as dedicated solar setups) the tanks are used only to store hot water.
The larger the tank, the more hot water it can contain, but the more energy it will need to keep it at a steady temperature. Tanks are usually very well insulated to prevent excessive heat loss.
As these systems regularly burn gas or electricity to keep the water at the correct temperature, storage hot water systems are not energy efficient. Storage Tanks are rated on a star system depending on their energy efficiency.
Most systems rely on mains pressure to feed water around the house, however tanks for solar hot water heaters (and some electric systems) are often mounted on the roof or in the ceiling and use gravity to distribute water around the house. These are called ‘gravity fed’ systems. Where mains pressure is low or tank or bore water is used, a pump may be necessary to provide enough pressure.
Tanks are insulated, but there is always some heat loss over time, so it’s good to install them in a sunny spot or in an insulated space. Stainless steel tanks are more expensive, but generally last longer and usually carry a 10-year warranty, but still require occasional maintenance (such as replacement of valves and seals).
Local water quality may dictate which type is best for you; check with the installer. Whether you need to replace an old system or are looking to upgrade to something bigger to suit your families need, we can help you source the right product for your home.
Instantaneous Hot Water Systems & Heat Pumps
What is an Instantaneous or continuous flow hot water system? Continuous flow hot water systems (also known as ‘tankless’, ‘instantaneous’ and ‘on-demand’ hot water systems) are small wall-mounted units that heat water as you use it, rather than heating it slowly and storing it as a hot water storage tank does.
Gas-based continuous flow hot water systems are among the most efficient domestic water heaters available. Electric continuous flow systems use less power than their storage tank counterparts, but still produce more greenhouse gas (CO2) than a gas storage system and because they operate on demand, this will often be during peak times. Continuous flow /Instantaneous hot water systems are more expensive than traditional hot water systems, but they are considered the best when it comes to power savings. The only drawback of continuous flow hot water systems is that it takes 2-3 seconds of time to get the hot water flowing.
Studies are currently underway to decide if and how to include continuous flow water heaters in the Australian Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards scheme (WELS).The size you need (flow rate in litres per minute) depends more on the number of hot water outlets the heater must serve than on the number of people in the household.

Roof, Gutter and Downpipe Clearing, Repair and Replacement in Wallsend
Storms are responsible for many of the roof and gutter repairs that we get called out to fix. Apart from the obvious things such as breaks and cracks and tin sheets or roof tiles blowing off, heavy rain and wind can cause water to run in a different way down your roof than it normally would – and it’s this which causes leaks and floods. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to suffer damage to your roof or gutters as a result of a storm, then call us right away and we’ll send one of our experienced technicians to your home or business at a time that fits in with you.
Roof and gutter repairs
Wallsend Plumbing Services offer a range of assistance in roof and gutter repairs, from the installation of new gutters to the repair and restoration of existing gutters, we’ve got the experience and the know-how to help with all your gutter and roof problems.
Minor repairs and maintenance
If, on inspection, your gutters appear to be pretty sound but are showing signs of wear or tear, then in most instances we recommend repair over gutter replacement, since this is typically the cheapest alternative. We’ll assess the level of damage and discuss whether a repair is possible. If your repair is only minor, then most times we can fix it within a day. For major repair work or a very large property, then it’s more likely to take up to 3 days.
Whether it is gutter cleaning, minor roof repair or a range of maintenance services, Plumbing Services Wallsend are sure to deliver prompt, cost effective solutions that will offer the best results.
Leaking roofs can cause serious damage
A leaking roof or gutter can cause serious structural damage if it’s not repaired. Signs that you have a leak can include stains or mould on your ceiling, wet insulation, and water entry inside your property. If leaks in your roof or gutters aren’t repaired quickly the problem is likely to escalate, causing damage to your walls, fittings, furniture, and house structure. The extent of damage can be reduced along with repair costs, if we’re asked to fix the problems when they occur, instead of leaving it until it’s too late.
