    Blocked Drains

    Blockages seem to cause problems at the most inconvenient time. Getting them fixed quickly – as soon as you notice them – will stop blockages becoming a bigger problem.  

    Keep your eyes (and ears!) out for common symptoms of a blocked drain including:

    » Gurgling sounds when you flush the toilet

    » Water being noticeably “sucked” away when you flush the toilet

    » Sinks draining water slower than usual

    We understand having a blocked drain is not pleasant and needs to be fixed as soon as possible.

    O’Connells prioritises blocked sewer emergencies to protect your health. We offer a same day promise with any emergency blockages. Call O’Connells on 0400 653 404.

    While we can attend to your drainage needs, there are things you can do to ensure a clear toilet system.

    » Don’t use too much toilet paper or poor-quality paper that doesn’t dissolve well

    » Be aware of what feminine hygiene products can and can’t be flushed

    » Don’t flush nappies or baby wipes

    » Don’t flush tissues or paper towels; they don’t dissolve like toilet paper

    » Don’t pour oils or fats down the sink. They solidify in the pipe and block the drain. 

    » Call us if your water pressure is low; materials need force to flush properly.

    Toilet Repairs and Installation

    Whether you’re looking to fix a faulty throne or are ready to install a new model, the O’Connells team are your local toilet specialists.

    While toilets are generally built to last, constant use over the years means that parts can begin to wear down. We can either repair your current toilet or advise you about and install a new one.

    Leaky Taps

    Kitchen tap still dripping even after you’ve turned it off? Water pooling around the base of your bathroom tap? Can’t get the shower head to stop dripping?

    Call O’Connells! We can fully service your taps – making them work like new -without the cost of a full replacement. However, if you do want fresh new taps, we can do that to!

    A leaking or dripping tap is not only frustrating, it is also wasteful. Any excess water waste is costing you money. Fixing your taps may be as simple as changing a washer or as involved as a full tap replacement. O’Connells is here to advise you and make sure you get the right solution the first time at a price you can afford.

    We can help you with all your leaky tap needs including:

    » Flick mixer tap repairs –cartridge replacement
