Mad Plumber Wizard *

Just in case anyone else is still stuck at the Water Plant of DOOM, here is what finally worked for some wasting days ::

Open up fresh tabs (you may want to flood first, but with this method it matters little) or windows (using the room=URL links); two for Room 1, three for Room 2, and three for Room 3.

Submit the following into each consecutive tab but don't click Go yet.


Take a deep breath. Go. Refresh tabs/windows (using the actual refresh key or browser button and NOT the link above the pictures) like a Mad Plumber Wizard, orderly or randomly.

The point of this is to maximize your "click effects" since order and logic does not seem to matter, this ensures you more easily hit the odds of the correct sequence. By refreshing using your browser button or keyboard key, you are refreshing the ACTION, not the room of any prior action that may have caused an effect. The links above the rooms refresh only the room itself -- to observe the effect(s) of another room after you clicked anything. Observing the water flow and changes, etc. does not seem to matter despite the puzzle seemingly trying really hard to do that.

This is a method of last resort. Good luck!

If this method was helpful to you, why not donate $1 to the Mad Plumber?


  • This was AWESOME! It worked for me in less than a minute, instead of the ages it was taking me to do it methodically. Thanks!

    By Blogger Connie, at 6:46 PM  

  • Wow...I spent three hours doing it the normal way and this way did it in less than five minutes. Nice job and thanks!

    By Blogger Julie, at 6:20 PM  

  • this actually works!
    just refresh each tab individual, in turn, and bam.

    By Blogger tv_addict, at 7:21 PM  

  • After spending two days attempting random patterns then trying to get systematic using a table of all possible patterns I stumbled upon this. 5 minutes later, I've saved Altador. Thank you Anjuna!

  • Wow, this was completely amazing! This worked for me in just over a minute! Brilliant stuff :)

    By Blogger keitacheryl;, at 11:01 PM  

  • It worked for me in less than a minute! I spent three days on it before I finally found this. :)

  • OMG thank you so much I finally fixed the bleeping water plant T_T

    By Blogger Jac, at 5:24 AM  

  • thank you so much! with your mad plumber wizard i fixed the water plant with only a few clicks. genius.

    By Blogger will, at 1:58 PM  

  • ... Wow. Awesome. I swear, less than 10 seconds. XD You are amazing, and very much appreciated!

    By Blogger vashti_parvaneh, at 4:44 PM  

  • OMFG thank you soo much! I refreshed them each twice, and two a third time and I got the 'yey' message.

    You < Water plant

    xD thanks again.

    By Blogger Diane, at 11:32 PM  

  • I started making new tabs, and before I was even done entering all the new tabs it worked!! I'm very impressed!

    Thanks so much. (:

    By Blogger Firey, at 4:21 PM  

  • Dude, I am amazed. It took me less than a minute. Wow! Big thanx!

    By Blogger MIster Sinister, at 4:38 PM  

  • After days of frustration on this plot, finding this saved the day. If you combine it with the "reload every" add on for firefox it is even easier. I just set up each page to reload on a different amount of seconds and I just let it run for 2-3 minutes. YOU ROCK!

    By Blogger Sarah, at 3:57 PM  

  • Oh, wow, thanks. I spent literally days on this and was really frustrated, and your instructions worked really quickly. Thanks so much.

    By Blogger Brigid Keely, at 9:02 AM  

  • Am I the only person still stuck after trying this???? Maybe I'm not doing it right??? HELP ME PLEASE!!!!!!!!

    By Blogger NuckerBug, at 5:01 PM  

  • Nevermind!! I got it using this method!!! Thanks!!! I think I was doing it wrong before...

    By Blogger NuckerBug, at 5:13 PM  

  • this is weird. but its not working 4 me. mayb im just doin it wrong. cuz i put them all into tabs and i refreshed them all and it still not workin!!!
    its pissin me off.

    By Blogger Donna, at 10:12 PM  

  • Keep refreshing :) and be sure to pay attention to the area below the image that will let you know when the water plant is fixed.

    By Blogger anjuna, at 12:55 PM  

  • Yay THnx it workd .lol i dint reli pay attention to wat it said at the bottom .

    By Blogger Donna, at 12:41 AM  

  • Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!

    By Blogger yvonne, at 4:37 AM  

  • I was reeeeally stuck on this puzzle, even after doing what you said, and so I thought i'd tell the method that finally worked for me.
    I did this method with all the tabs, and then I refreshed the first one. I then refreshed the first one again, then the second and then the first. Then the first, second, third, second first and so on. When I got towards the last tab, it worked! YAY!
    Hope this helps others. Good luck!

    By Blogger elsa_willow, at 8:49 PM  

  • Well I tried in order, back and forth, at random, and after refreshing for 30 minutes it still doesn't work... I'm starting to think mine just won't resolve, maybe my account is set to "can't win altador plot"

    By Blogger Niko, at 4:32 PM  

  • halleluyaaaah, i got it... 3 minutes my &à"@#!! Over an hour yes!

    By Blogger Niko, at 5:11 PM  

  • Consider yourself one of the lucky ones :D -- and more so for finding this quick tweak! ;) I personally spent 3 waking days, and so did many others several hours, trying to fix that darn plumbing. :P

    By Blogger anjuna, at 5:22 PM  

  • It doesn't work for me. I can always get two of the vats filled, but while I'm trying to fill the others, they empty. Also, the urls change as soon as I enter them. I think Neopets has disabled this way of getting it done.

    By Blogger Jen, at 3:14 PM  

  • The URLs should not change when you enter them. (That could be a browser problem and if you use Firefox then I can't help you.) Probably the best method is to right-click on each link and open it in a new tab/window. Please read the instructions very carefully. The idea of this "trick" is that you need not pay attention to how the vats are filled at all since the logic behind it is as wonky as the plant itself. Best of luck trying again!

    By Blogger anjuna, at 10:50 AM  

  • hi there... initially i was stuck even after following your instructions but then i kept trying and IT WORKED!!! thank you so much!!!

    By Blogger teekaywhy, at 10:42 PM  

  • Wow is all I can say! Very good idea.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 4:20 PM  

  • Wow, I finished it so increadibly quickly using this method that I got confused why I suddenly couldn't make any more changes. It must've taken me less than one minute of actual clicking. Thanks!

  • You are truly a genius. I tried it for 2 days using a complicated table with all possible solutions, and I still didn't get it. Using your method, along with the one elsa willow suggested, and I got it on the third refresh.

    By Blogger Ashley, at 3:14 PM  

  • this is a really great idea, but i've spent hours and days refreshing and refreshing the tabs...
    i've also tried doing the longer way twice...
    maybe i'm doing something wrong?
    i use safari, please help me...

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:42 PM  

  • I'm not too familiar with Safari; the only thing I can think of is to make sure your browser displays any new page changes upon each refresh. Some browsers default to retrieving images from the cache, which can sometimes result in an older version of a page being shown. Also, make sure you are understanding the instructions. ;)

    By Blogger anjuna, at 11:01 PM  

  • hi! me again,
    can you suggest any other browser that will surely help me get out of the water plant?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:26 AM  

  • Well, Neopets was designed to be viewed and played in Internet Explorer but that doesn't mean you shouldn't be able to solve the puzzle with another browser. First make sure you understand the instructions and that your current browser can detect and display page changes upon each visit. If that doesn't work, feel free to try Opera or Firefox. I use Avant Browser which uses the trident engine to render but has more features than any other browser I've tried, including Firefox. ;)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 5:47 PM  

  • I'd have to know exactly what you are having a problem with? What are you doing so differently that is "close to" but not exactly as the instructions direct? ;)

    By Blogger anjuna, at 6:17 PM  

  • my comment doesn't seem to be posting....hmm. well, what i'm having issues with is details. when i say "as close to" i mean think i'm doing that exactly, but i could be doing something wrong unknowingly. I am refreshing the tabs, as directed, but im unsure if letting thetab load completelyis necessary before i refresh the next one is an issue, (let me know if i'm not making sense...) really i think i just need some details...i'm not fantastic with computers, so im probably doing something totally obviously wrong...thanks. :)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:31 PM  

  • YESSSS!!!!! never mind, thanks for your help, but it just worked. I'm going to restate the obvious, YOU ARE A GENIUS!!!!! :):):):)

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:39 PM  

  • Hmm, letting the page load might be a good idea anyway but two other things might matter. 1) Make sure you refresh using the browser function and not the link above the images (the link refreshes the page to show changes made from working on other plumbing areas; the browser refresh actually refreshes the page to enter new data such as clicking a lever). 2) If you think your browser might be loading from cache and not updating the page properly you might try using the "Go" function on your browser instead (as in if you were going to a new web page but in this case you are going to the same page again and again). Firefox tends to load from cache and the default setting on old Internet Explorer versions *is* to load new data but doesn't function properly so must be set manually to load new data upon each visit. Hope that wasn't too complicated-sounding. Sorry for the Polish English, lol, and let me know if you are still having troubles. :)

  • I feel dumb being the only one asking this, but are you suppose to paste the link in the URL bar, then go onto the next one and paste the other Url links? Cause once I switch to a new tab, it doesn't stay. I think i'm just misunderstanding the intructions, but i'm hopelessly confused?

    By Anonymous Rosiie, at 2:58 PM  

  • When I mean it doesn't stay, I mean once I switch to another tab, the previous tab, the one that I posted the URL link in, it goes back to the original URl..

  • Hey there.
    I want to know, how long should I wait before refreshing pages?
    Until each loads?
    Or like, just jump from one, right to the other.
    Just want to know, since I have been trying this for a little while.
    Also, will the thing come up on only one of the tabs?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 1:34 PM  

  • You should wait until the page loads anyway so that you can see when the success message shows up. If you reload the page before that time, you will never know if the code that executes fixing the plumbing has finished running. (And might end up having to start all over with the Mad Plumber Wizard!) ;) The message of success should show up on the first page that reloads after the correct sequence has run and on all future pages related to this particular part of the plot. So, yes, let all pages fully load. And if you miss the success message you should see it again should you re-attempt to fix the water plant. :)

  • I'm doing everything EXACTLY as you said. I even clear my cache history every time I go through the eight sets of links. I have used every single method on the internet. I am NOT going to try all 254 ways. Am I doing something wrong? First I open eight tags including your instruction page. Then I paste a link in one address bar and go to it. If I dont't go to it, it erases the link. (I didn't design it) As soon as there all gone to, I push refresh, the button ;), and I do that one by one down the line. Then I push "erase cache history" after I refresh the eighth link. I'm on Internet Explorer 7 or 8. Then I go through it again. See what I mean? I've tried flooding Altador, then pushing everything once. I've tried putting everything at random settings and taking a break. You get the idea. People have already tried doing it one by one with a chart. Then if you make a mistake, oh god. I feel like contacting TNT and seeing if they will put in a new link, "Activate a nuclear bomb, in Altador." Somebody help! I've been at this for two days.

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:16 AM  

  • J, nowhere in my instructions does it say to clear your cache. Doing so defeats the purpose of this wizard! I created this method here because "doing it one by one with a chart" has not worked for so many, including myself. The correct answer may be a sequence of far more than simply eight actions. You would never know if your sequence of actions wouldn't have fixed the water plant on the ninth action, now would you? ;) Stop clearing your cache but keep doing what you are doing otherwise and you should have better results. Good luck! :)

  • Not at all, "orderly or randomly" as per instructions. Permission to get angry and be a Mad Wizard! Shouldn't be too much longer now! :D

    By Anonymous Rach, at 7:13 PM  

  • So do you just keep refreshing randomly or do you have to click anything?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 7:02 PM  

  • Rach, provided your browser works similarly and displays new data upon every page load it should be fine. Two hours is not unheard of but feel free to take a break and try closing your browser; logging out and back in to Neopets; clearing your cache and/or cookies. As for the question from the Anonymous user posting after you, just keep refreshing! :)

It was a good thing I tried a couple times more. I still cannot believe it worked! Thank you so much for sharing this with us! After giving up on this last year. @-) It was a good thing I stumbled upon your site! I don't know who you are, but thank you so much!!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 11:23 PM  

  • Do you close out the other tabs that aren't empty? I don't completely understand this method. I have eight tabs open, and I'm refreshing them all, and three of the different rooms are empty. Do i close out everything but those three rooms and refresh? This isn't very clear, even though everyone loves it.....totally confused here. Someone help me! I'm CatharineAlekzander on Neopets if you can message me or something!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 8:08 PM  

  • Dear Most Recent Anonymous, There shouldn't be any empty tabs or rooms. Something may not be refreshing correctly? Please state which browser you're using. It's possible you need to update it, or if recently updated you may need to roll back a version. I'm always perplexed when someone occasionally mentions this method isn't very clear. Perhaps it is because it is actually *simpler* than most expect it to be? You are simply, in essense, opening up each "turn of the spout" as a separate action in its own tab. I, myself, still claim I don't know how or why it works ... but it apparently does. ;) Good luck!

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:03 PM  

  • I tried this for 2 days SO long, and it still isn't fixed! I've tried EVERY method, Firefox and Internet Explorer +.+ It shows different pictures every time so it has nothing to do with the cache-thing. Why does it work for EVERYBODY except me ): ?

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:47 AM  

  • Oh my goodness! This worked amazing! Thank you so much! And the method I used was to refresh the tabs in order, then go backwards so tab 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 THEN 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 and so on.

  • I've been doing this for a while and nothing is happening. im curious as to wether theres an objective such as: make sure theres no water whatsoever in the plant; fill up all the basins; or try to make all the little tunnel paths flowing with water, because everytime i refresh a page where i have almost everything unfilled except for one thing i feel like im going to mess it up? am i just being paranoid by this or is it just complete;y random? (which i know youve said hundreds of times) im just not a beliver yet
