    Our latest water bill for our PPOR was $460! A lot more than our usual $250 per bill :eek:

    We think the problem is a leak, and suspect that it's the evaporative aircond. A pipe on the side of the house is flowing water.

    Can you kind folks in Perth recommend a decent plumber?

    Thanks

    What do they charge?

    I've used Plumbdog plumbing 4 times. $99 callout fee & $35 per 15 minutes. Always a quick turn around.
    If you want cheaper look for a smaller company, however if it's urgent they might be busy.

    Cheers.

    I've been really pleased with the service from Aus Star Plumbing 1300 788 351. I think they are a fairly small family business. Excellent customer service on the few occasions I've used them.

    I recently had a burst tap in my ensuite, flooded half the house. Royalty were the only ones to answer thier phone on a Saturday afternoon. Arrived quickly, fixed the problem. Was pleasantly surprised at thier charge for flickmaster they replaced. I would use them again.

    My PM and I use Casotti Plumbers 9302 4223. I've personally used them for a blocked drain and they were quick to come out and very reasonably priced.

    Had to google for plumbers who could repair evaporative air conds.

    Called K &J Woolley. They don't provide quotes but due to double storey house would send out 2 technicians. $250 for first half hour, $55 per 10 mins thereafter plus materials :eek:

    Another plumber, WA Evans, was a much more pleasant guy. He told me to look for the overflow valve which connects to the drainpipe. That would stop the continuous flow (money literally down the drain!!). I managed to find it, and the water meter stopped moving. Yay! :)

    Will fix the issue when we service the evap before summer.
