When is a plumbing problem an emergency

Some plumbing emergencies can wait until business hours, saving you some money. However, a lot of our customers like the convenience of having their plumbing problem fixed immediately.

Emergency Plumbing FAQS

After hour rates apply between 5pm – 7:30am. If you are in Auckland, we do not charge you for travel or mileage fees.

Standard Response Plumbing prices applies if the job takes longer than an hour.

Most home plumbing emergencies can be fixed within that hour. Once our plumber is onsite, they will be able to quickly assess your plumbing emergency and will discuss your options. That way, you get to choose the best, cost effective solution.

Every water leak is different, but turning of your water mains (this is usually found at the front of your house with either a blue or black cover) may help prevent further damage to your house and property. Call us immediately and a Response Plumber will be at your home to fix your leak. If you have flexible braided hoses in your house contact us before they start leaking.

There can be a number of issues, but no hot water usually means your heating element or thermostat in your hot water cylinder needs replacing. A Response Plumber can fix this problem once onsite and have hot water running in less than hour in most cases. We can also install a new hot water cylinder or upgrade your water pressure to improve water flow for your shower and taps.

Response Plumbing did a fantastic job repairing our toilet leak. The booking was taken straight away, and Matt did a great job repairing our toilet efficiently and competently. The work area was left neat and tidy, and I know where to go in future when I require a reliable, high-quality plumbing job. Thanks team.

Those folks are AWESOME!! First, I called couple of other plumbers because my hot water cylinder burst one day and I really needed urgent help. However, only Response Plumbing said they could come and took a look within like an hour before it gets worse. They helped settled the issue and provided me a good solution. Second, they were dedicated to the installation process and finished work clean as and fast as, leaving no damage to my house. Also, they are capable of handing dirty work and try their best to ensure the quality of their work.
