CALL MATT TO BOOK IN 0404 950 459
Having worked in small to medium sized maintenance plumbing companies around Sydney’s Northern Beaches and North Shore areas for the last 10 Years – I finally decided it was time to go out on my own.
My passion for honest, fair and client first plumbing are things I am now able to focus on within my business.
A couple of years ago a good friend – while I was doing work at his unit suggested that I should start working for myself, laughing that I should call it “Matt’s Taps” – the name just stuck!
While Banjo (our 2year old Kelpie) is often featured in my socials as our apprentice, he spends most of his time working in admin and keeping my wife company working from home!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a jetter?
We get asked this a lot!
It’s a machine that uses high pressure water to clear blockages in sewer and storm water pipes.
The most powerful domestic Gerni, usally used to clean driveways operates at 2,030psi, our particular jetter operates at 5,000psi – which means tree roots have no chance!
How can you locate the blockage?
Our CCTV drain camera has the ability to locate the problem section.
The jetter and CCTV camera work hand-in-hand. The camera allows us to position our jetter in best possible position to remove any debris, tree roots or just clean the pipe to see the exact condition of the inside.
Can I supply my own materials?
Great question, we carry a range of basic tapware, however if you are looking for a particular design – we would recommend going to Reece and pick one that you like, we can install and order it for you.
On our jobs, we do prefer to supply our own products as we have a great relationship with our suppliers, which means we can offer the full warranty, know the quality of the products and get a great price for you.
Be careful when purchasing products from hardware shops, make sure the box hasn’t been opened. If you plan to source from there instead of Recce, please read the terms and conditions of the warranty before buying it – don’t get caught out.
At the end off the day, we’re a strong believer in the phrase “You get what you pay for”.
Please do NOT buy products from other countries or overseas shops. All product must have the Australian Standards Watermark on it.
Can't you just replace the washers?
Plumbers get this a lot… after 8 years experience in plumbing, 4 out of 5 times, it’s not the washer that is the problem, it’s another component of the tap.
We conduct a full service and replace the internal components of the taps, meaning we leave the job knowing the tap is completely serviced.

Including but not limited to:

What do if you have an emergency?
Step 1: Call us 0404 950 459
If it’s a burst water pipe in a house – locate the water meter at the front of the property and turn it off. If you in a unit block, small taps are usually located under the laundry tub or under the kitchen sink – turn these off.
If its a blocked sewer, please don’t flush anything down any toilets or turn on any taps. We don’t want any more water to go down the pipes and its will be draining away, just very slowly.
We’ll be there as soon as possible to sort out the cause of the problem!
