Can I Get a Plumber during Lockdown in Melbourne?

Yes, you can still call a plumber in Melbourne during stage 4 restrictions and the coming lockdown road map. The Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has advised during COVID 19 restrictions emergency plumbers can operate in metropolitan Melbourne. We can attend emergency plumbing jobs such as unblocking toilets and replacing hot waters systems. And continue work on construction sites as guided by the rules in restrictions.

Emergency Plumbers will continue their service to all residents of Melbourne as permitted workers authorised by the state government. Harley Plumbing has specialised in domestic maintenance plumbing for 20 years and we are on call 24/7 with fully qualified and highly experienced rotating teams. We will clear drains, fix or replace hot water units, repair or replace heating units. Our emergency plumbers are available 24/7 and we follow strict coronavirus work protocols.

  1. No Hot Water
  2. Leaking water internally
  3. Blocked pipes, drains, toilets or sinks.
  4. Burst taps or showerheads

Is Plumbing an Essential Service during COVID 19 Restrictions?

Plumbing is classified as an essential service and we can attend emergency plumbing call-outs for Melbourne residents. We ensure our plumbing service and operation is always up to date with government guidelines and the Master Plumbers Association of Victoria advice.

Our team of licensed and qualified plumbers are highly experienced in emergency plumber work. In fact, one of our most common plumber jobs is emergency plumbing. We have a strong relationship with the RACV for emergency home assist. We are an RACV service provider and attend insurance calls for the Northern and Eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Some suburbs we serve for emergency plumber insurance claims include;

  • Eltham
  • Montmorency
  • Ringwood
  • Preston
  • Croydon
  • Kew
  • Camberwell
  • Surrey Hills
  • South Morang
  • Kew
  • Greensborough
  • Yarrambat
  • Thornbury
  • Reservoir

Of course, we service much more than these suburbs so if you need an emergency plumber just give us a call.

Can I get a Plumber after the Lockdown Curfew in Melbourne?

Burst taps and overflowing toilets can happen anytime so our team of emergency plumbers are on call 24/7. You do not have to abide by lockdown curfew times until between. And we get to as soon as possible. Our plumbing vans come fully equipped with tools and plumbing parts so we can fix the leak or problem immediately. And if it’s a job that’s more involved we will make sure the immediate problem is secured to prevent any further damage from leaks or gas leaks. We provide immediate assistance to keep your home and family safe then arrange repairs.

How much does an Emergency Plumber Cost?

This is different for every situation. But we can usually advise you over the phone once we get an idea of the emergency what costs to expect. Often leaving the problem makes it more expensive in the end. So we advise in any plumbing emergency to call us so we can give you advice and an idea of the price. If you are a renter there are rules to check, generally speaking, if its an emergency and not maintenance that needs to be addressed immediately then you can call an emergency plumber to pay the cost yourself and the landlord must reimburse you within a certain timeframe. But we suggest you either call you a landlord or rental agency beforehand for clarification or check the Victorian government’s renters website as it has all the rules regarding renters and emergency repairs listed.
