PAD PLUMBING & MAINTENANCE
Got a question related to your home’s or office’ plumbing system? Following are some of the most frequently asked questions, answered by our team of experienced plumbers in Melbourne!
Why am I getting unusually high electricity or gas bills?
I don’t have enough hot water!
Gas, electric, solar hot water heater or heat pump, which one is better?
An electric hot water system is cheaper to buy but expensive to run, due to high energy prices.
Gas hot water heaters usually come with energy efficient star rating and are cheaper than electricity.
Solar hot water heaters are an environment friendly heating system with low running costs in the long run. However, the installation and the system itself can be expensive.
Heat pumps are more efficient than their electric counterparts and with government rebates you can offset the purchase costs.
There are no apparent leaking taps, why am I still getting high water bills?
Why does my drain keep blocking?
What is a backflow test and when do I need one?
Upon receiving you’re a letter from your local water authority, you must get your backflow valve tested to prevent your fresh water supply from being contaminated. Backflow test takes about 10-15 minutes and must be carried out by a licensed and certified backflow plumber in Melbourne.
