    Behind Every Strong Man Is A Stronger Woman

    Hi, my name is Emily and I am the co-owner of Proximity Plumbing along with my husband William, we all know behind every strong man is a stronger woman. Having great plumbers is one thing although it is the woman’s touch that keeps this team together. As a small to medium business we pride ourselves on excellent customer service from the initial point of contact to the completion of the job. I wanted our company to be different from every other Kensington plumber breaking the negative stigma associated with local plumbers in general.

    This starts with personally taking each phone call, my passion is resolving your issue and dispatching our closest available plumber to your plumbing emergency for example an emergency blocked drain. When you’re thinking of a plumber near me, we want to ensure you’re thinking of us as a local plumber who can be relied upon and trusted.

    As only a woman would appreciate, I can multitask easily and keep my phone on and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take your calls. Being married to a local Eastern Suburbs plumber you would be surprised how much knowledge I have. I have even created the chatbot on the right-hand side, so even if you do not have time for a phone call you can reach out and I will personally respond.

    Why Choose Us As Your Local Eastern Suburbs Emergency Plumber?

    • When it comes to an emergency and you’re thinking of “plumbers near me”, it pays to call a plumber with experience in identifying the cause and effect of the issue immediately. For the team at proximity plumbing, it’s almost second nature knowing how and where to tackle the issue often without even being to site.

    • Our 24-hour 7-day service is a standard, as we want clients to know we can be relied upon when the time comes. Too often a plumber is called under stressful circumstances, but we aim to reduce this as much as possible with our reliability and professionalism.

One of the reasons customers always return is our friendly nature, knowledge, passion, and integrity. We pride ourselves on our service and the relationships we build with our customers.

    • With 25 years of collective experience in Kensington works alone, there has not been a job we could not address, for example, a burst pipe or gas leak which is often one of the reasons we get a call. Many plumbers would rush out to get to your property without first attempting to assist you in finding your nearest isolation tap. This advice and assistance alone can ultimately save your hundreds if not thousands and dollar in damages and after-hours service calls.

    • Another common emergency call-out we receive is blocked or clogged drains which can be caused by something as simple as an excessive hair in your shower drain or as dramatic as a sudden surge in stormwater causing your pits and downpipes to overflow and roof to leak. Have you recently checked if the hair is caught inside your drains, 9/10 you can resolve the issue by pulling apart your waste connection beneath?

    • We’re the plumber Kensington residents trust for over 10 years, our local plumbers have a competitive advantage as we can guarantee 30’mins response times and legitimately check your issues with a $0 call out.
