Formerly an old coastal cray fishing town, old Quinns is now a renovators dream suburb. We know that Quinns Rocks is well known as one of the oldest suburbs in the north of Perth. Shacks and weatherboard houses were built on sand dunes decades ago. Today, many people are buying bargain houses in the area and knocking them down to build new builds or to subdivide the large blocks since the zoning regulations having changed recently.
Given that there were no mains sewer connections when these old houses were constructed, many are still using septic tanks systems. It wasn’t until 2001 that mains sewer was brought into the area, with the project not fully completed until 2014. Since then, Alkimos Plumbing and Gas have worked the Quinns Rocks area to complete sewer conversions, converting from septics to mains sewer. Our plumber Quinns Rocks is available 24 hours for any emergency plumbing or sewer issues.
The conversion process includes the pumping and decommissioning of the existing septic tanks and submitting all paperwork to the relevant authorities. Then we install the new sewer pipework and connect to the property mains sewer shaft. Being on mains sewer makes properties far more appealing and valuable in the eyes of homebuyers and developers alike. Another common job for our plumber in Quinns Rocks is to provide these older homes with natural gas conversions as some of the older homes are still on LPG bottles or no gas.
