Emergency Residential Plumbing Services
It can’t be stressed enough just how important it is that you always go through a reputable plumbing service for your emergency plumbing and all other plumbing needs. A fully licensed and qualified plumbing service will carry out quality work, liaise with tenants, landlords and property managers in a professional and efficient manner. Getting a plumber that is used by reputable Property managers is a bonus. Aside from extra credibility they understand the rules and regulations around rental properties.
First, let’s identify what makes a plumbing emergency. It is generally defined as an occurrence/event that needs immediate attention as it interferes with the normal functioning of a building. Clogged drains, burst water pipes, gas leaks, broken hot water heaters, blocked toilets and flooding are classified as plumbing emergencies. Leaking taps are not classified as emergency plumbing. They still need repairs though. Always use a qualified plumber certified to carry out emergency plumbing.
Residential Building Manager
The building manager is engaged by a scheme to be an on-site resource for everyday property matters. The responsibilities and level of authority of a building manager will vary depending on the needs of the scheme. Their contract should reflect what their duties are.
Their duties can include:
Being the on-site contact for owners, occupiers, suppliers.
Facilitate repairs and maintenance of common property by obtaining quotes.
Instructing strata manager on work orders.
Supervision and quality assessment of suppliers.
Contract register and management.
Provide cost-effective options for prolonging the life of the building's assets.
Maintaining and managing the asset register.
Creation and management of maintenance programs.
Capital works fund assessment management.
Management and provision of security systems and items.
Ensure building compliance and safety is maintained.
Certifications including lifts, swimming pools, fire systems, and roof anchor points.
Assists with the management of upholding by-laws.
It helps to create a harmonious and positive community.
Suppose a property manager reports a common property issue to the building manager. In that case, their contract should define whether they have the authority to decide or whether the decision rests with the strata committee. It is important to note that there is no contractual relationship between a strata manager and a building manager. They are both engaged by the owner's corporation to perform different duties concerning the scheme. The building manager generally has special skills that are not required for the provision of strata management services.

Proactive Vs Reactive Plumbing
Much like your car, your house requires general plumbing maintenance from time to time. However, there are several areas homeowners should keep in mind when it comes to plumbing maintenance. First, flexible plumbing hoses should be checked periodically. If you see signs of rust, wear and tear or bulging you should call a plumber and have them replaced immediately. If left unattended, you may incur a burst pipe which can cause serious damage. Second, it’s important to take note of dripping or leaking taps and toilets as leaking pipes do not get to a state where they fix themselves… in fact, they only get worse. Which will eventually ‘spill over’ into increased water bills as well as a larger plumbing job to repair and pay for.
A complementary item to also check is your hot water heater, where you will be looking for signs of rust or corrosion. Additionally, if you have a storage tank be sure to check the pressure relief valve. Information about what to do will be written on your tank, usually near the top. Should you notice rust, or do not understand the manufacturer’s instructions, feel free to give our plumbing team a call and we can help. It is important you maintain your water heater to ensure it has a long and efficient operating life.
