MT Plumbing uses the latest in gas leak detection technology and can repair your gas leak problem quickly. Gas leaks can occur in the following areas around your home or business premises:
Gas leaks are most often detected by smell. However, if you suspect a gas leak that is not immediately noticeable, check and write down the gas meter reading before you go to bed, then check to see if it has changed by morning. If the number on your gas meter has risen overnight, there may be a gas leak that requires attention and we recommend you contact MT Plumbing as soon as possible to locate and address the source of the leak as soon as possible.
Blocked drains are a common problem experienced at some stage in most homes and businesses. There are a number of reasons that drains will block and often the immediate symptom of the blockage is treated but not the underlying cause.

A burst pipe is classed as a water emergency and can cause serious damage to the structure of a building and electrical wiring. It is vital to take action as soon as you discover a burst pipe.
What to do in a burst pipe situation:
Leaking or burst hot water heaters can ultimately be isolated by turning off the water meter, however a more practical solution is to turn the hot water heater off. This allows cold water to still be used throughout the property and allows toilets and cold water taps to still function.
