Some common plumbing emergencies and causes
Have you got plastic piping? This type of piping fails when you least want it. If you are thinking of fixing the burst pipe, then it is significantly more difficult than you think. Call us before the burst pipe becomes a much greater emergency. Check more info on Dux Black Piping Replacement. We repair other types of pipes too, whether your property has a copper pipe, HDPE (high-density polyethylene) and PVC water piping or PVC pipe, pex pipe, etc. We also replace and repair gas pipes.
HDPE (high-density polyethylene)
PVC Water Piping or PVC Pipe
No hot water or no gas
Our emergency plumbing service team can install emergency water heaters, or sometimes, can put an exchange gas hot water unit in quickly based on the situation.
No hot water is not an emergency in the strict sense, but we realise it is urgent as it is a need. We usually get hot water running on the same day. We run a call-out service that may be able to repair the urgent situation depending on the parts required.
We keep stock of most likely needed items in our vehicles for emergency plumbing purposes. “No gas” can be an emergency depending on circumstance. e.g. the gas pipe is broken. Sometimes a water heater that will not light looks like it has no gas. It could be the result of blocked pilot injector or there may be no gas.

Precautions to take in gas leak emergency:
- Do not light any flames or turn off or on any electrical switches.

- The valve is located underneath or to the side. Turn it so that the valve handle is across the pipe at right angles.
- If the gas cannot be turned off contact us on 04 384 4635 or your gas supplier immediately from a phone well away from the area.
Gas Supplier Contacts are
Water shut off valve
The water shut-off valves – there should be two, one on your property; and one outside the boundary owned by the local authority. Sometimes they are hard to find. Try looking inline with a hose tap on the property. Otherwise, you will have to contact the local authority who will locate theirs. They come in their own time unless the water is flooding out. If water is flooding out, then call us, and we can help till they arrive.
Water can do a lot of damage if left long enough. The best action is to turn the water off. Find the water shut-off valve and turn it off. It switches off clockwise usually. If it does not shut off, try the supply tank on the roof. If you have a supply tank, turn the water off at the boundary shut off. Most properties have a shut-off valve near the hose tap at the front of the house. Newer houses often have one in the garage. If you cannot turn off the water, call the Local Authority to tell them you can’t find the valve and water are flooding in. They usually come right away. While you wait, open all the cold taps, including hose taps and the cold bath tap. This will de-pressurise the system and minimize the leak. Call us for water leak emergencies on 0800 484 353.
Gas Shut off Valve
This is under the meter or to the side. Turn so that the handle is at right angles to the valve to shut off.
Blocked Drains and Sewerage Discharge
If you have no water running inside and sewerage is flowing out continuously at a fast pace, then it could be a blocked sewer main, and the city council should be called as soon as possible.
If the sewerage only flows out when water is used, it is likely a blocked drain. We have industrial water blasters that can sort that in minutes much more reliably than a drain unblocking machine and has a higher success rate than any other method. We are Master Plumbers in Wellington. Call our emergency plumbers Wellington on 0800 484 353 that’s 0800 HUGE LEAK.
