What is a Plumbing Emergency?
There’s no worse feeling than jumping in the shower first thing in the morning, only to find there’s no hot water.
Unfortunately, it’s common for hot water systems to fail—particularly gas hot water systems, which have a shorter lifespan than electric models.
Because there are so many reasons your hot water system may stop working—whether it’s a failed heating element, a blown fuse, or the dreaded broken-down boiler—it helps to have a trusted emergency plumber on hand.
Our fully licensed emergency plumbing team are experienced in both gas and electric hot water systems and can quickly fix any hot water issues, or provide a full on hot water replacement should you need it.
Clogged toilets and sinks are an all-too-common problem for homes across Perth.
Whether it’s from an overuse of toilet paper, flushing something you shouldn’t have, or a buildup of gunk, the first step is finding out what’s caused the issue.
For toilets, this could be a blocked drain line, hard water buildup, or worn out old pipework. For sinks, it could be a build-up of dirt, skin flakes, soap scum, or hair.
If you’ve already tried the plunger (without any luck), emergency plumbing services are your next best bet.
As Perth’s local plumbing experts, we can quickly unblock a stubborn toilet or deal with blocked drains—and we’re just a phone call away!
Gas leaks can be a serious emergency, putting homes at risk of fire or explosion, while attributing to multiple deaths per year.
You may detect a gas leak from the sulphur smell, or a hissing noise coming from the appliance or pipework. In the case of a carbon monoxide leak, you may feel dizzy, lightheaded, or nauseous.
If you suspect a gas leak, turn off your appliances (e.g. your gas heaters), open nearby windows and doors, and go outside immediately.
You should then contact an emergency plumber (preferably a gas certified local plumber who offers a same day service), who will use the latest gas leak detection technology to remedy the issue.
Our team here at Provista is fully gas certified—and are a quick call away.
Blocked pipes and blocked drains are a common call out for any emergency plumber—and one our team at Provista are well versed in.
Similar to blocked toilets, blocked drains and pipes are often the result of poor performing pipework, or from flushing foreign objects, like sanitary products, paper towels, or wipes (even hair can be the culprit!)
If left untreated, blocked pipes can soon turn into burst pipes, so we recommend contacting your emergency plumber as soon as you notice a pipe blockage.
Our expert team can quickly unblock any clogged up pipes. Should a pipe burst, we use the latest leak detection technology to fix the faulty section and minimise the damage to your home—and your utility bill.
Here’s one you’ll want to call an emergency plumbing service for—leaking sewage!
Residential sewage leaks usually happen because of damaged or blocked drains (the result of poorly installed pipework, tree root ingress, or joints becoming displaced) or because of back-flow issues from the local sewage system.
Aside generally being nasty to deal with—especially without the right equipment—sewage leaks can put you at risk of bacteria and disease (like e-coli and salmonella), while releasing harmful gases.
Should you detect a sewage leak, don’t hesitate. Contact Provista—your trusted Perth emergency plumber—right away!
Calling out an emergency plumber doesn’t always have to be for something as serious as a broken hot water system, or fixing a burst pipe, or safely attending to a gas leak.
You may notice something just isn’t quite right in your home. Perhaps leaking taps (or constantly dripping taps) are causing a concern, or you’ve noticed pools of water forming around your appliances, or a discolouration on your walls or ceilings.
When your home is at stake, it’s always sensible to take extra precautions when it comes to plumbing work. If you notice something’s amiss and want the advice of a certified, expert local emergency plumber, our team at Provista are happy to offer their advice.

FAQ - Emergency Plumbing
If you’ve got a plumbing emergency, don’t panic! While you may fear the worst, plumbing emergencies are common and experienced plumbers are usually close by to remedy the situation.
When you notice the issue, your first action should be to turn off the water supply. If it’s a minor emergency—perhaps a blocked toilet or sink—you may be able to shut the water supply off in that area. If it’s more serious, shut off the main water supply for the property.
For small water leaks, you may be able to contain the problem with rags, old towels, or empty buckets. While doing so, contact your emergency plumber who will advise you on what to do in the immediate situation—and can be there to assist if needed.
Yes, a blocked or clogged toilet can be classed as a plumbing emergency as it puts your toilet at risk of overflowing. We always recommend trying to maintain clear and healthy pipes by not flushing foreign objects and hard to flush matter—which is usually the cause of a clogged toilet.
If your toilet is blocked, you should try to plunge it first, before then calling out an emergency plumber.
Aside from the obvious instances, like a gas leak or burst pipe, there are many instances when you should contact your local emergency plumber.
As a rule of thumb, if a fixture or appliance in your home has broken and you’re unable to cook, clean or sanitise, you should speak to a plumber. Depending on the nature of the emergency, you should try to isolate the broken fixture and shut your water supply off to prevent any further damage.
We should also mention that while emergencies happen unexpectedly, they can usually be prevented in the first place. Many emergencies are the result of negligence or improper use of home pipes—so take care of your plumbing pipes, and they’ll take care of you!
If you’ve got a serious plumbing problem in the middle of the night, fear not. Our emergency plumbers are available to attend your property at any hour!
Depending on the severity of the issue—and if we have all of the tools, equipment, and materials available at that time—we may only provide a temporary repair, but will then return to address the problem in the morning.
Emergency repair costs can vary by company, but are usually split by a callout fee, and the charge for completing the work. At Provista, we pride ourselves on transparency, will be upfront about the pricing and fees of our plumbing services when you contact us and explain the problem.
