Know Where Your Isolating / Meter Taps Are Located
If you turn the tap, but the water doesn’t stop and you’re in an apartment, call your apartment managers immediately. If you’re in a house and facing the same problem, call O’manuel Plumbing for immediate replacement. Sydney Water offers a free replacement service, but it takes up to 10 days.
High Water Bill Costs
Check your water meter before you go to bed and make a note of the reading. Ensure that no one in the household will be using the water during the course of the night. If your water meter has changed in the morning, you have a water leak and should call a qualified plumbing company to trace its source and repair it.
You should then call a plumbing company, like O’manuel Plumbing, to come and fix the leak.
Gas Fittings and Appliances
If you’re in a house, the gas meter is usually located on an outside wall of the building. The stop valve will be located right near it. To turn off the gas, simply turn the lever or handle 90 degrees from its present orientation.
If you notice a gas smell coming from your storage water heater, the pilot light in your water heater has probably gone out. To relight it, follow the link: http://www.rheem.com/Gas-Storage-Water-Heaters The instructions for relighting it are on the right hand panel. If you need any further help, call O’manuel Plumbing at 0411 198 384.
