Top Plumbing related questions

The cost of hiring a plumber can range from $35 to $100 per hour. However, this can go up depending on the task, additional travel and callout fees, and materials. Drain unblocking may cost around $120 to $200. Plumbing repairs can cost you $200 to $300. If you need to connect gas to your home, gasfitters may charge between $150 to $250. Be sure to include all details about your plumbing needs to set the right price and find the best plumber in your area for the project. 

A simple unblocking of a toilet can take less than an hour if the blockage is minor. Other tasks like installing a hot water system can take an entire day or more, depending on the difficulty of installing the tank, valves, required pipes, wiring, and any other components. Most plumbing services can take at most a day; this may take longer if the issue involves the sewer line and sewer camera inspection services are required to find the problem. 

No. While you don’t have to provide any tools for local plumbing services, you should provide whatever device that must be installed. Taskers provide their expertise, labour, skills, and years of experience when performing a service. You can expect them to arrive at your location well-equipped and prepared to unblock your toilet, install your hot water system, replace a hot water cylinder, or do whatever service you hired them to deliver. 

Yes, but only if it involves simple maintenance tasks like patching a leak or clearing a minor blockage from a toilet. More complicated jobs like CCTV surveying or installing a hot water system require a licenced professional who has working knowledge of soldering, electricals, pressurisation, temperature, and, in some cases, carpentry. We advise you don’t attempt to do tasks that require tools, materials, and techniques you have no knowledge or experience with; you’d best use Airtasker to hire a professional plumber in your area.

Yes! Should you offer plumbing services but have more jobs than you can handle, you can hire Taskers to boost your staff. Make a post with all the crucial information such as a description of the job, the kind of skills, level of experience, and the quality of workmanship you expect from your Tasker. Qualified plumbers nearby will reply to your post with a free quote, and you can start negotiating from there. 

There are a few plumbers available 24 hours but expect them to charge more. If you live in a large, urbanised area, you should have little trouble finding someone to fix your plumbing issue at short notice. This may prove more difficult if you’re in a smaller locale and emergency plumbers might not be available. Should you need a plumber during off-peak hours, it’s not uncommon to find one in your region. Just prepare to pay more if they need to travel a long distance.

For certain types of tasks, you may need to enquire as to what specialist licenses may be required to undertake your task as this can vary. Gasfitters, drainlayers, and master plumbers working on sanitary plumbing must be registered and licenced to carry on any work. Please make sure that you confirm that a Tasker has the relevant plumbing licence and insurance before accepting an offer.

While their areas of expertise and the nature of their job can be similar in some aspects, commercial and residential plumbers are quite different. Residential plumbers cover fewer tasks, while commercial plumbers deal with more pipes and plumbing fixtures, and offer other building services. Commercial plumbers also have more safety and health codes to consider, especially if they’re working on the plumbing of a restaurant, hotel, or other large-scale food business.

What does a plumbing service include?

Your plumber will diagnose any issues, repair them to the highest standard, and give you advice. But the exact process and inclusions will depend on your plumbing needs. Whether you're looking for master plumbers, gasfitters, or drainlayers, here are some of the services you can ask them to do for you:

Plumbing installations

If you’re installing a new kitchen, bathroom, or dishwasher, you’ll need a plumber to get the pipes connected. Your plumber can help with fridge water line installations, mixer tap installations, new shower heads, and more. They’ll take a look at your space and existing setup, then use the right tools, pipes, and equipment to get everything connected and running smoothly, with no leaks.

Fixing leaks

One of the most common plumbing repair issues is leaking showers and taps. Not only does the drip-drip-drip get super irritating, but it can lead to flooding, water wastage, and excessive water bills. Your plumber will check the situation, then turn off your water so they can take a closer look. They’ll repair or patch your leaks and install any new parts needed. If you have emergency services that require quick fixing, you can rely on plumbers to do the task. 

Hot water system repairs and installations

There’s not much worse than running out of hot water for showers, washing machines, and dishwashing. Find a plumber near you to help get it fixed faster when you need emergency hot water system repair, upgrades on your hot water tank, or replacement for your hot water cylinder. Or book a standard gasfitting service with your local gasfitter to make sure everything’s safe and working as it should. Your plumber will assess your hot water needs, recommend any fixes, and then either repair or replace your parts to get them all in working order. 

Pipe repairs

Your pipes are crucial for bringing freshwater in and draining wastewater out, but they can get damaged by storms, interference, tree roots, or just ageing. If you think you have a pipe problem, it’s important to find a local plumber near you and call them in for PVC pipe repairs as soon as possible to minimise damage. If the pipes are exposed, your plumber may disconnect any water services to them, then remove and replace the damaged section. They’ll use high-quality adhesives and seals to ensure the joins don’t leak, move, or burst.

Blocked drains and toilets

If, in the words of Kenny, “there's a smell in here that will outlast religion”, it’s time to call your local plumber for help. Blocked drains and toilets aren’t just smelly. If you leave them, they could overflow and cause flooding and health issues. If you’ve unsuccessfully tried to clear the blockage yourself, call in your plumber. They’ll use more advanced (and powerful) tools to clear even the most stubborn drain blockages and toilet blockages without damaging your pipes and fittings.
