Sydney Strata Plumbing

What is Strata Plumbing?

Strata plumbing is plumbing that runs through shared properties. So if you live on a lot with four individual homes, but all of the plumbing connects to one central system, then you are part of a strata plumbing system.

For many homeowners, Strata Plumbing is a confusing topic that leaves many paying for damages that they are not liable for.

In this article, you will learn about what strata plumbing is, who funds it, as well as what services are usually covered by strata plumbing.

Who Funds  Strata Plumbing Maintenance?

For system-wide maintenance, the homeowner’s association will fund the plumbing maintenance. Each member of the community will contribute money every year and some of that money will go toward maintaining the shared services, including the strata plumbing. However, if there are individual issues, like a leaking toilet in one home, the individual owner of that home will be responsible for paying for the repairs.

Strata Plumbing Services We Offer

General plumbing includes everything from fixing a leaky faucet to unclogging a toilet. For any of your general plumbing needs, Plumbwell Plumbing Services is here to help.

Blocked drains are one of the most common problems that homeowners encounter. If you begin to notice that your water isn’t draining properly or is flowing in the wrong direction, give us a call today.

Stormwater drains can easily become clogged over the years as debris washes into them along with the rainwater.
Water leaks can be difficult to detect, especially in the early stages. However, with our specialised training and equipment, we can detect leaks before they turn into major water damage.

At Plumbwell Plumbing Services, we are licensed to handle and repair gas plumbing lines as well as water plumbing.

Burst pipes can be one of the worst situations in terms of water damage and they must be addressed quickly.

To ensure the safety of your water supply, it is important to perform backflow testing to ensure that contaminated water has not entered the clean water lines.

No matter if you need a total hot water installation, or a simple repair, Plumbwell Plumbing Services is here to help with our team of licensed plumbing professionals.

To perform a thorough drain inspection, it is necessary to use CCTV drain inspection cameras. These allow us to have a better understanding of what is going on below the surface.

We can perform the necessary testing to determine if your plumbing system is up to date with regulations and to keep it in tip-top condition.

Tap washers and toilet repairs are two of the most common problems that we are called out for and most of the time they are simple fixes.

If there is an issue in one of your pipes, but you don’t want to replace the entire pipeline, we can reline and patch your pipes. This will quickly get them back to working conditions without having to tear out the entire system.

Navigating Strata Plumbing Issues

To navigate Strata plumbing issues in Inner West, there are several steps you should take.

Water leaks from one property to another

In a strata plumbing corporation, the owners’ corporation is held responsible for water leaks that affect multiple properties.

Leaking shower in a private unit

Since a leaking shower is not part of the overall plumbing system, the owner of the unit is typically considered responsible for repairing it.

Broken kitchen sink

Just like with the previous issue, since the sink is not directly connected to the shared system, the owner will be responsible for repairing it.

Water damage

Water damage is typically covered by strata plumbing as it is caused by an issue in the main system. However, this will vary depending on the agreement reached in the individual strata system.

Damp or mouldy spots

The same as with the previous issue. Damp spots are generally considered a system-wide issue, as it’s often a problem that requires piping upgrades.
