Knowing when to call in a plumber will protect your house from further possible harm, and help ensure the safety of those living in it.
Some people like to have a go at a bit of basic plumbing in the hopes of saving money—but sometimes your best bet is to back away and call in trained, experienced professionals for safe residential plumbing services.
Most plumbing companies in Perth have seen their fair share of DIY disasters. Aside from potential injuries, there is also a chance of accidentally transforming that small technical job into an incredibly expensive mess.
For the JCS Plumbing fleet, our first focus will always be your wellbeing. And in the hopes of keeping that repairs budget to a minimum, call us in early. Below are times you should reach for the phone, instead of a toolkit.
Hot water on the fritz
Anything to do with the water heater is best left to professionals. Leaking water, erratic temperatures, weird noises, a gas leak or ignition malfunction can place you in danger if a DIY effort takes a worrying turn.
Floors or walls are damp
If floorboards or carpeting feel moist, give us a call. Ignoring a likely burst water pipe risks further chaos. Avoid DIY wiring and electrical accidents. As a Perth 24 hour plumber we can locate, access, evaluate and repair.
Low water pressure throughout the home
One tap with low pressure may be a simple fix. The whole house experiencing low water pressure sounds more complex. A JCS Plumber has the equipment and training to pinpoint the problem, and provide a solution.
A pipe is broken
Trying to repair and replace piping is rarely as simple as it sounds. House plumbing is an intricately balanced system in daily use. Piping needs to be reliable, and long-lasting. Trust a plumber for a dependable, expert fix.
Drains keep clogging
While most like to try DIY drain cleaning, sometimes the issue is buried deep in the pipes, or the result of more than simple clogging. If troubles continue, have a plumber address the dilemma before it progresses further.
The front or backyard is flooding
If the weather is dry and sunny, sounds like a problem with the water main piping into your home, and a potentially serious fault. JCS Plumbing will pinpoint where the water is coming from, and the best way to proceed.

There’s an issue with the sewerage
If you have waste water appearing, call a plumber to deal with whatever is causing the troublesome event. Exposure to sewage lines can lead to illness, and blocked up sewage could require specialist plumbing.
Electricity and gas are in play
Any DIY plumbing job that has you tinkering with gas components or electrical wiring (or both) should be a hard pass. Our plumbers have the requisite training to avoid serious injury during potentially dangerous tasks.
