Plumbing Adventures on the Gold Coast

Have you ever wondered what a Gold Coast plumber does on a daily basis? Recently one of our Metropolitan plumbers attended a property that had a hot water system issue. What happened next? Well, you’ll have to read on to find out.

After a quick Internet search for ‘plumber in Gold Coast‘, Jed came across Metropolitan Plumbing and as he needed hot water in a hurry, he decided to give them a call.

It was a Sunday morning when his call came through to the call centre. Jed was quite panicked because he had no hot water. He advised the call centre staff that he needed it restored immediately because he had a flight to New Zealand booked for that evening. Our call centre staff reassured him that it could be restored before his flight and dispatched a plumber within the hour.

Jed was thrilled to have the plumber arrive at his Gold Coast home just 45 minutes later. Upon arrival, the plumber inspected his Chromagen Eternity T26 gas boosted hot water system only to find that it was leaking badly and needed replacing.

Despite Jed’s solar unit having panels that were in good working order, the leak meant that he as relying exclusively on the system to produce hot water. This suggested that his unit was not receiving enough water on cloudy or overcast days because the panels were not exposed to a sufficient amount of sunlight.

Jed was elated with the plumber’s knowledge and assessment. He was also pleased that the plumber was able to supply and install a new Eternity T26 straight away. Just 2 hours after calling Metropolitan, Jed had his hot water restored and his stress was eased.

This job was quite simple for our plumber because it was a like for like changeover. There was no pipework or joinery needed to be altered and Jed’s new Eternity T26 gas hot water service was supplied and installed efficiently.

Jed was in a hurry and opted to pay for the service using a credit card. All our Metropolitan plumbers carry onboard ATM machines for a quick and efficient payment. Whilst our interest free service is extremely popular with our customers, a large majority still choose to pay for the service upfront.

This is just one of the many jobs that our plumbers attend on a daily basis on the Gold Coast. Anything from leaking taps to large pipework replacements, they really do it all.

Had a great experience with Sam coming out on Public Holiday to replace a hot water system when the old one finally gave up the ghost! Super professional and friendly. Excellent job!

Had my toilet replaced on Friday. They arrived on time and went above and beyond to finish the job professionally given it was a lot harder than first thought. Our plumber was fantastic. Would definitely use again.
