The toilet paper crisis has led to Sydney’s drains being flooded with a high volume of wet wipes, paper towels and tissues. The limited supply of toilet paper has urged people to panic buy and begin flushing items down the drain that don’t belong there.
We all need toilet paper, every day and with the limited supply due to COVID-19 it is good to know what you can and can’t put down the drains.
Kelvin, our lead plumber, mentions that Sydney homeowners use the toilet as a rubbish bin, kids toys, printing paper, you name it we have seen it!
While it can be tempting to put the odd items down the toilet, it is not recommended as it can cause damage to the septic tanks, cause environmental pollution and you will be required to call a plumber to unblock your drains with the build up.
Tissues: They are not designed to break down, they are built to wipe noses and be placed in the bin. If this is your last option please make sure the tissue paper goes in the bin and not the toilet.
Wet Wipes: Yes even the wipes that say ‘flushable’ are not recommended to be placed down the toilet. All wet wipes block the plumbing system and after due course it will block the system and you will require a licensed plumber to clear the drain.
Cotton pads & tips: Cotton pads and tips group together and mesh to clog the drains very easily. They are not designed to be placed down the sink or the toilet.
Toilet paper, pee and poo. Homeowners of Sydney are urged to follow the rules and make sure nothing other than the 3P’s are flushed down the toilet. The toilet paper crisis has caused homeowners and the plumbing systems over 1.4 million dollars worth of damage over a full year.
1. Ensure you have a bin your the bathroom, so that no one is tempted to flush anything other than toilet paper
2. Cotton buds, wipes, nappies, paper towels or even wipes that claim to be flushable can create blockages so don’t flush them.
3. If you are not sure if the item is flushable or not, don’t flush it !

It is always a good idea to service your hot water system before winter and ensure you have a maintenance check performed. It will give you peace that the hot water heater will last through the winter months. There is nothing worse than being forced to have a cold shower in the cold weather. Check your system for any rust or leaks and arrange a service for your heater before the cold weather hits.
Preparing a plumbing system for winter is not a tedious task or requires a large budget. As a homeowner you will have peace of mind that your plumbing system is prepared and good condition to last the season.
While Sydney homeowners are home it is a good time to check the bathrooms, kitchen and laundry for leaks. It is a good idea to check the water meter and your most recent bill, this is a good indicator that the leaks are costing you money.
When was the last time you checked your flexi hose underneath the sink? If you notice rust, leaks or general wear and tear it is recommended to get them replaced. Flexi hoses have the potential to burst if they are not replaced in time, this is a common insurance claim and we highly recommend to have them checked!
Before the winter season starts you will need to make sure the gutters, downpipes and stormwater drainage pipes are clear with no leaks or not overflowing. Overloaded gutters can often cause damage, pull away from the house and require serious repairs.

With isolation here to stay in Sydney and social distancing the new norm, it is the perfect opportunity to update your bathroom space. Our head plumber Kelvin has given us 6 ideas to refresh your bathroom at a low budget without having to call a plumber.
Updating your bathroom can be very rewarding and any work you put it will definitely pay off once it is complete. Some easy tips we have created will allow you to transform the bathroom without breaking the bank.
Shower heads last for years but eventually they will begin to look dated or potentially start to leak. Replacing the shower head in your bathroom or ensuite is relatively cheap and can impact the overall look of your space. All you will need is a basic water saving shower head, shifter, utility knife and wire brush which can be purchased from your local bunnings store.
Removing the existing shower head and fitting a new one will take approximately 10 minutes and gives the bathroom space a new look! This quick plumbing solution can be done by anyone DIY, you will not require a licensed plumber.
Step 1: Remove the old shower head, you will require a shifter to loosen and unscrew it from the pipe. Also spray WD 40 on the thread for easy removal.
Step 2: Clean the thread with a utility knife, remove the flange and give it a clean, use the wire brush to remove any debris.
Step 3: Attach the Shower Head, screw the fixed mount shower head onto the end of the diverter, attach the hand held unit mount to the shower per the directions and connect the flexible shower hose.Turn on the water and divert water from the fixed to the hand held unit.
Does your bath spout need replacing also? Follow the same directions as the shower head, same principles apply. Ensure you install a spout that is water efficient, we always recommend a swivel bath spout to move out of the way so the kids don’t hit their head in the bathtub.
A simple task which will help practically and aesthetically. Do you have a light in the bathroom that hasn’t been working for sometime? Or never had the chance to swap the bulbs to nice warm light, now is your chance.
Illuminate your bathroom design, you will not require a licensed electrician for this job and you can find a variety of nice lights at your local Beacon lighting store to suit your bathroom design.
Make a trip to store or shop online, update the soap dispenser,toothbrush holder, add a wooden stool, add a new plant or simply change the accessories colour schemes, get DIY savvy and brainstorm how you can add some character to your bathroom. Temple & Webster and many online retailers are doing mega sales on bathroom accessories during the Covid 19 isolation period so it is a great time to accessorise!
Sometimes the smallest details can create the most impact. When was the last time you purchased new towels for the bathroom? Treat yourself and your family with some new towels, go for a bright colour or a nice pattern and add some textures.
Does your storage cupboards look like a bomb has hit it ? Cleaning and organising your bathroom essentials will help you easily find items and we are certain you will also find some goodies you completely forgot about! Take this time in isolation to organise and clean!

COVID-19 Plumbing Measures:
Below are a few of the initial measures we are taking for the well-being of our customers and communities:
Something that Sydney homeowners usually forget but our hot water systems are used daily and this means they would see significant amounts of wear and tear. Like just any other appliance in your home, you need to ensure regular maintenance is completed to prevent unexpected breakdowns as well as save you a significant amount of money. Our hot water experts at Quintessential Plumbing have put together a simple tips.
We recommended all hot water heaters to be drained at least every six months, this is a very important aspect of water tank maintenance to ensure longevity of your heater. This will flush out the system and help control any build up of minerals which helps maintain the water heaters efficiency.
Instructions to drain the water:
How does your hot water heater look ? It is recommended to check your hot water system to see if there are any leaks( take a look at the floor under the heater), look at the relief valve, the piping or rust appearing.
The anode rod is the water heater’s defense mechanism against rust and corrosion. Depending on the chemical composition of your water, the anode rod can last anywhere from a few years to the life of the heater. It is a good idea to check the condition of the anode rod every year.
If you want trouble-free hot water it is recommended to get regular inspections by qualified professionals like Quintessential Plumbing. Our experts will thoroughly inspect all the components such as the heating element, operating unit as well as the wiring to ensure it is in perfect condition. By completing regular hot water heater maintenance inspections this will reduce the incidence of breakdowns.
