Depending on the pipe’s location and how significant the damage is, you can categorise a pipe burst issue from simple to severe plumbing problems. Burst pipes can cause flooding but can also compromise the structural integrity of your homes.

New Life Plumbing is very particular in repairing burst pipes. Our burst pipe plumbers are well rounded on the dangers of burst pipes in your home or property. To address your burst pipe and leaking issues quickly call us on 1300 35 10 10 or contact us online.

Leaky Taps

Leaking taps are one of the most annoying plumbing issues you can encounter at home. It wakes you up in the middle of the night and adds up a huge amount to your water bill if left unattended. Worn-out seals inside your taps are the most common cause of the issue.

New Life Plumbing is ready to take on the task for you. Our certified plumbers can easily fix or replace your leaky taps in no time. Our Sydney plumbers are equipped with the latest training, techniques, and technology that will ensure you get quality repairs and installation all the time.

Blocked Toilet

A blocked toilet leaves dirty flush water in the bowl. The water can even overflow when it doesn’t flow at all. If your toilet is blocked and overflows and your attempts to unblock your toilet have failed, we are here to help.

Our team of blocked toilet experts is equipped and experienced plumbers that can resolve your issues.  

Blocked Sinks and Drains

Blocked drains are one of the most common plumbing issues that can happen in a home. Whether your blocked drain is in your bathroom or kitchen it can be a headache and cause a big mess. We unblock your drains using the latest technology:

  • Plunging
  • Electric Eel
  • Motorised Drain Snake
  • Cold Water Jet Blasting
  • Hot Water Jet Blasting

Blocked Stormwater Drains

Blocked stormwater drains are not a problem that can be left for days or weeks. Flooding or property damage is a genuine threat. Your stormwater drain system is made up of underground pipework and downpipes which are connected to your gutters. Without a proper functioning stormwater system, your home could be at risk of foundational damage as heavy amounts seep into the soil during winter.

We are competently able to deal with and resolve:

  • Blocked storm water down pipes,
  • Overflowing roof gutters,
  • A fully blocked stormwater drainage system,
  • A partly blocked section of storm water pipes,
  • An overflowing storm water pit,
  • A clogged drain adjacent to the storm water mains, or
  • Broken / collapsed storm water pipes, and actually CLEAR, REPAIR or REPLACE any type of blocked drain or broken pipe within your storm water drainage system.


We will provide you details of the condition of your drain and explain what is causing the problem and how we will go about addressing and fixing the problem. A detailed quote with options will be provided with costs to complete the job. Our costs are based on the job and not on the hours spent to resolve your issue. 

Gas Leaks

Gas leaks are considered to be the most dangerous plumbing problems a household can encounter. As gas is combustible it can easily ignite and lead to deadly fires and explosions.
Undetected gas leaks are also the leading cause of carbon monoxide poisoning and can be fatal to lives.

  1. Evacuate everyone and pets from inside your house immediately
  2. Open all windows and doors
  3. Turn off your gas from your gas meter
  4. Call 000 if you suspect poisoning and require medical assistance (calls should be made outside of your home)
  5. Contact 1300 25 10 10 for emergency gas plumbing assistance (calls should be made outside of your home)

What plumbing areas should I regularly check?

Before you call a professional general plumber to come and look at a problem, it’s important to know what to look out for. 

  • Water leaks — This is the most obvious and important issue that affects most households. We’ve all been in that annoying situation where we’ve found a leaky tap, or even worse, heard that annoying dripping noise throughout the night! If you find that any of your taps or water sources are leaky, it’s best to call a professional to avoid any exorbitant water bills. To ensure this isn’t an issue, regularly check all your taps after you turn them off. 
  • Gas leaksPlumbing maintenance is absolutely essential if you suspect a gas leak. A gas leak can lead to poisoning and expose you to potential fires or explosions. Checking for gas leaks will keep you safe, so ensure to do it regularly. 
  • Toilet issues — A blocked or clogged toilet is perhaps the most inconvenient general plumbing issue you can face. Often simple plunger solutions can help, but you know who to call for anything else. 
  • Hot water — This is something that you can passively check. Every time you shower or take a bath, you can check to see if your hot water works. If you experience any issues, a general plumber can promptly provide expert home plumbing services
  • Water pressure — Though it’s easy to notice if your water pressure isn’t working the way it should, it’s tough to diagnose the cause without professional help. So, if you notice that your water pressure isn’t working optimally, don’t hesitate to call us. 
  • Water quality — Checking the clarity of your water is important for your health. The easiest way is to see how clear it is. Anything other than absolute clarity should be dealt with immediately.

Charlie from New Life Plumbing replaced our old indoor storage water heater with a new continuous flow heater. He was prompt and informative, and did a great job with the installation including the vent through the external wall. Highly recommended.

We had our gas heater serviced. We have used 2 other companies in the past and were not impressed with either company. They merely gave the heater a bit of a dust over. New Life Plumbing described their service over the phone and already I was impressed. The service is friendly and informative. I would highly recommend.
