Brisbane Plumbing Adventures

Adventures of a Brisbane Plumber

Alex was disappointed to find that he had a leaking tap in his laundry. Thinking about the possible consequences, he thought it best to contact a local plumber. After a quick Internet search for a plumber, he decided to call Metropolitan Plumbing Brisbane. And it’s a good thing that he did because if the leak had gone unnoticed, it would have cost him a large amount of money on his water bill.

Alex rang the call centre and advised the staff that he had a dripping laundry tap. They promptly dispatched a plumber to his Mount Gravatt home to rectify the issue. The plumber arrived at Alex’s property and assessed the tap only to discover that there was a simple fix. He was able to fix the leaking tap within 20 minutes and restore water to Alex’s property.

But The Brisbane Plumber Didn’t Leave Things There…

Alex was thrilled with the service, but it did not end there. As the plumber was packing up, he noticed a faint smell of gas coming through the laundry window. He asked told Alex about his suspicion and asked the homeowner if he minded him checking the connections to the BBQ.

Upon inspection, he found a small gas leak on the BBQ’s connection point. Because all Metropolitan plumbers have a van full of the necessary tools and parts, he was able to fix the gas leak immediately. Alex was thrilled with the service and pleased that the plumber used his initiative to sniff out the location of the leak.

A dripping tap is nothing to joke about. Australia is the world’s second driest continent after Antarctica and drought is one of the biggest environmental issues facing the country today. Water taken from the environment and allowed to drip away down the drain is a completely needless waste.  A single dripping tap could waste enough water to fill a small swimming pool over a year – a whopping 20,000 litres.

Alex opted to pay for the service with one of our interest free** providers. These $0 deposit, interest free** payment plans help spread the payments across weekly or fortnightly instalments, rather than one big sum upfront. They are flexible and popular. Alex found the application process very simple after he received approval in just minutes.

Everything From Leaking Taps to Leaking Gas

Not only did Alex save on his water bill, but he also avoided a potential gas hazard, thanks to the plumber’s keen sense of duty and expertise. This incident highlights the importance of regular maintenance and the unexpected benefits of having a professional check your household systems.

The Metropolitan Plumbing Brisbane team prides itself on providing more than just a quick fix. Our plumbers are trained to inspect the entire property for any underlying issues that might not be immediately obvious to homeowners. In Alex’s case, what started as a routine tap repair turned into a crucial gas leak detection, showcasing our commitment to comprehensive service and safety.

Furthermore, our interest-free** payment options, like the one Alex used, ensure that our clients can manage their finances without stress. We believe that everyone deserves access to quality plumbing services without the burden of financial strain. This approach is not only customer-friendly but also encourages timely repairs, preventing small issues from becoming major, costly problems.
