Flexible Water Connections and Insurance claims.

G’day, Sydney homeowners! It’s The Lone Drainer and Pronto here, back with a crucial message that could save you from unexpected financial setbacks. We’ve been plumbing superheroes for years, and today we’re here to talk about a growing issue – home insurance claims being denied due to a lack of periodic plumbing checks on braided stainless steel hoses.

You might be thinking, “What’s the fuss about insurance claims and plumbing checks?” Well, let us break it down for you.

In recent times, we’ve seen an alarming trend in the insurance industry, with some companies rejecting water damage claims because homeowners haven’t had licensed plumbers carry out periodic checks on these braided stainless steel hoses. It’s becoming a ticking time bomb for homeowners, and here’s why you should take it seriously:

  1. Insurance Denials: If your plumbing hasn’t been regularly inspected by a licensed plumber, your home insurance provider may use that as a reason to deny your claim in the event of water damage. That means you’ll be left to cover the expenses out of your own pocket.
  2. Preventable Disasters: Bursting hoses are a leading cause of water damage in homes. Periodic checks by licensed professionals can identify weak hoses before they burst, preventing potential disasters and costly repairs.
  3. Safety and Peace of Mind: Regular plumbing checks not only safeguard your home but also ensure your family’s safety. Water damage can lead to health hazards like mold and mildew, which pose risks to your loved ones. Knowing your plumbing is in good shape brings peace of mind.

So, what can you do to avoid these insurance claim rejections and protect your home and family?

  1. Schedule Regular Plumbing Checks: Ensure you have a licensed plumber inspect your flexible water connections periodically. This simple step can save you from potential financial losses.
  2. Document the Inspections: Keep records of these inspections, including the plumber’s report, to provide proof to your insurance company in case of a claim.
  3. Stay Proactive: Don’t wait until a disaster strikes. Regular maintenance and checks can prevent costly plumbing emergencies.

At The Lone Drainer and Pronto, we understand the importance of periodic plumbing checks. Our licensed professionals are ready to help you safeguard your home and keep your insurance claims secure. Don’t let your hard-earned money slip away due to a technicality – be proactive and ensure your plumbing is in top-notch condition. We’re here to assist you every step of the way!

World Water Day 2024

Living in Sydney Australia we have water on tap.

Fresh water to drink. Clean water to cook with. Even fresh clean drinking water to flush the toilet.

And, if we don’t, we have great plumbers like The Lone Drainer and Pronto to find out why, and return the status quo.

If you didn’t know, March 22nd 2024 is World Water Day. Its a day to consider the billions of people worldwide who have never had potable water dispensed from a tap.

So, how does that affect you dear reader? Well it doesn’t!

Unless we are to venture to parts of Asia, Africa and some parts of Australia and the Americas and the oceans in between us for exotic getaways where the local residents just don’t have fresh water to use the way that we do.

There are several things we can do to draw attention to the plight of those who don’t have access to fresh drinking water:

  1. Share information: Spread the word about the global water crisis by sharing information about it with your friends, family, and social media networks. Raise awareness about the issue and the impact it has on people’s lives.
  2. Support organizations: There are many organizations that work to provide clean water to people in need. Consider supporting these organizations by making a donation or volunteering your time to help with their efforts.
  3. Advocate for change: Write to your local representatives and urge them to support policies that prioritize access to clean water. Use your voice to advocate for change and push for action on this critical issue.
  4. Reduce your own water consumption: By conserving water in your daily life, you can help reduce the demand for freshwater resources and lessen the strain on those who don’t have access to it.
  5. Take action on World Water Day: Participate in events and activities that are organized around World Water Day to draw attention to the issue and show your support for those who are affected by the global water crisis.

By working together to raise awareness about the issue of water scarcity, we can help ensure that everyone has access to this basic human right.

Love your Plumber on World Plumbing Day 2024

G’day, it’s The Lone Drainer and Pronto here to tell you why World Plumbing Day, Monday March 11th 2024, is worth celebrating!

Take a quick look behind the scenes at our Coogee plumbing HeadQuarters to see how we celebrate every day.

It can be a lot of fun showing up for our clients daily.

We prepare ourselves and our equipment and load up materials before coming out to see you at your home or business.

But, you won’t see us giving Plunger a rubdown, sweeping the floors, making everything spic and span.

Checking on all our high-pressure drain cleaning equipment to see it’s in tip-top condition to easily fix your blocked drains.

We’ve got drain cleaning equipment for every situation.

You won’t see us reviewing footage from the inside of your sewerage pipes to find out precisely what’s going on, or working on some entertaining and educational blog posts just like this, our specialty.

We bring a variety of parts to fix your taps and toilets, and what we don’t have, we’ll get pretty quickly. You won’t see us stacking mountains of toilet paper, just in case you need it.

We bring loads of equipment to the job, just for you, and when we show up at your place, you won’t know we’ve come from our plumbing HQ here in Melody Street, Coogee.

P.S. Take another minute and watch a few scenes from The Cutting Room

But seriously, plumbing is an often forgotten, but critical component of our modern society that many people take for granted. Plumbing allows us to access clean water, safely dispose of waste water, and maintain hygiene and sanitation in our homes, workplaces, and public spaces. Without plumbing, our daily lives would be much more difficult and unhygienic.

Secondly, World Plumbing Day provides an opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of plumbing and the role that plumbers play in maintaining public health and safety. It’s a chance to recognize the hard work and dedication of plumbers, who often work in challenging conditions to ensure that your plumbing systems are working properly.

Finally, World Plumbing Day is an occasion to promote sustainable plumbing practices and technologies that can help conserve water, reduce energy usage, and minimize environmental impact. As plumbers, we have a responsibility to ensure that our work is not only effective but also sustainable and environmentally friendly.

So, let’s raise a toast on World Plumbing Day and all the great plumbers out there who keep your plumbing systems running smoothly and our communities healthy and safe!

And, as we say in Australia, “‘ave a good one”!
