Acacia Ridge, located roughly 15 kilometres from the heart of the city in Brisbane’s South is an established suburb that had many of it’s buildings constructed during the post World War II housing boom. The main arterial through the suburb is Beaudesert Road which feeds onto Ipswich Road as it nears the city.
The suburb contains a mix of commercial and residential properties playing host to the one of the larger railway freight yards in the state. Because of this, Acacia Ridge does have quite a large industrial area which is populated by Toyota and more recently TAFE Queensland’s SkillsTech campus. Our latest plumbing apprentice actually completed his plumbing services courses at the Acacia Ridge location. The campus is renowned for its professionalism in the areas of drainage, gas systems, pipework and water heating systems and produces qualified plumbers, gasfitters, and wastewater management professionals with impeccable industry knowledge every year.
One of the pearls of Brisbane’s plumbing world lies within Acacia Ridge – the ice rink! Although it might be plus 30 degrees outside, the giant refrigerated ice rink is always ice cold. Ice rinks require quite a lot of effort from a plumber’s perspective to maintain, there are a range of moving parts including water pumps, refrigeration pipe grids, chilling units, and specialised hoses. A true plumbing marvel!
Because the majority of residential properties in the area are standalone houses, the most common domestic plumbing services for this suburb tend to be your everyday plumbing requirements including blocked drains, burst pipes and hot water installation. However, since the Brisbane floods we have seen constant work coming from the suburb to improve storm water management. This is not isolated to residential dwellings as many business owners in the area have taken preventative plumbing measures to ensure no repeat of the 2011 catastrophe.
