Merry Christmas from the Group AMS team
The team at AMS Plumbing Gold Coast wish you a very Merry Christmas and hope you enjoy all that the festive season brings. We appreciate however that amongst all the fun and festivities of Christmas, plumbing emergencies can still occur. Therefore if you experience a plumbing emergency then the team at AMS Plumbing Gold Cost will still be able to assist you, as we will be open over the holiday period for any emergency plumbing problems, so they don’t dampen your festive fun.
There are a few things you can do to attend to any urgent plumbing emergencies until such time that we can attend and repair. These tips will help minimise damage and ensure safety with some urgent plumbing problems:
- The smell of leaking gas is perhaps one of the scariest situations to be in. If you believe you have a gas leak it is important that the first step is to stop the leak by turning off the main gas to the home. Locate the LPG cylinders or gas meter and immediately shut off the taps or lever so no more gas can leak. Then apply all precautions such as turning off appliances, extinguishing all flames, ventilating the area, and then remaining outside the home and follow the directions of the AMS staff.
- Burst water pipes can occur at any time without warning. Let’s just hope it doesn’t occur just as the family sits down to a hot roast dinner on Christmas Day. But if it does, don’t let the turkey get cold, simply locate the water main and turn the lever or tap to cut off all water supply to the home. This will completely stop the leak until it is able to be repaired. You will have to enjoy a few extra wines as the washing up after Christmas lunch may have to wait.
- Having any toilet problems with a house full of guests over the Christmas holidays is certainly an emergency. Should you have a severely leaking cistern, then turn off the water supply to just the toilet rather than the whole house. The cistern stop tap is located beneath the cistern and will stop water supply to the toilet until it is able to be repaired.
Should you experience a plumbing emergency over the holiday period then contact us at AMS Affordable Plumber, as we will be open for all plumbing emergencies these holidays. Merry Christmas from the team at AMS Plumbing Gold Coast.
