Future-proof Bathrooms

Posted by: Crawford Anderson Posted Date: 01/08/2016
Larger, less cluttered spaces, such as wet rooms or walk-in showers are the solution and the number of these installations have increased recently and look set to be a larger part of the plumbing and heating market. The wet room/ walk-in shower design is easier to clean and look after for one. They are more easily accessed by users with the use of seats and rails which prevent the danger of slips and falls. Showers also reduced water use which lowers energy costs.

Plumbing Slogans

Posted by: William Anderson Posted Date: 22/08/2014
We have found that you need to retain a good sense of humour in our trade, since we often find ourselves in sticky situations. The ability to do a great job and see the humour in things helps us get through the day and makes for a great plumber. Plumbers work hard and are great sports when it comes to the humorous aspects of plumbing. We have found that our clients also like to see the funny side of things. So we thought we would find some plumbing slogans that encompass the funnier aspects

Posted by: Happy G Posted Date: 06/11/2013

Reducing the risks of plumbing emergencies before the onset of winter is something we should be thinking about now. Here are some steps to take now to reduce the risk of being caught out.

  1. Find out where the stop cock valve is located and check that it is working occasionally
  2. Check the drain valves from time to time
  3. Check any other service valves and understand what they do
  4. Check the condition of any flexible hosepipes plumbed into any home appliances, make sure they are not perished
  5. insulate any exposed pipes in storage rooms or in the loft
  6. Inspect your cold water storage tank regularly
  7. Have your central heating boilers and other appliances services now and once a year at least
  8. Check for any dripping taps or continuously running overflow pipes
  9. Turn off any outside taps or insulate them so that they do not freeze
  10. Make a note of a professional, qualified and licensed plumber and keep their information handy

If you follow these tips you should reduce the risk of being caught  out by winter coming on.

 

Make sure the plumber you use is registered and licensed and choose the right professional for the job. Call us now on 0207 386 8888 to arrange for a preventative check on your premises

Spare a Thought for Your Boiler!

Posted by: William Anderson Posted Date: 29/05/2013
 
 
Poor old boilers are often forgotten during the summer and we feel sorry for them. In fact (and this might sound a little strange), we would like to give your boiler some love.
 
Of course we're sorry to remind you about winter, that's not our intention at all, but when it does come you'll be glad you thought of this now. There is no better time.
 
Boiler maintenance is crucial. What better time?It's always a good idea to service your boiler during the warmer months. If you're not using it then this can lead to issues when you do come to turn it on later in the year. Let's face it, it's going to be much more pleasant to sort any issues out while it's warm than it might be if something goes wrong during the winter. In addition to this, we are busier during the winter and when our services are in such demand it's often tricky to fit people in and industry prices can often rise during these months.
 
So apart from the doom and gloom of "What if it breaks?" there are other reasons. Servicing your boiler properly can lead to lower bills due to increasing the efficiency of the system. Deposits can build up and removing these can make a big difference. It's always nice to save a little money on your bills.
 
Anyway, we'll stop trying to convince you now and just say that if you do want our help we are here for you 24 hours a day. Get in touch with us on 020 7386 8888 or you can fill in this form here.
 
 
Top tip: If you don't use your boiler in the summer the motorised valves in the system can sometimes seize when you need them. Also the seals can harden during neglect which will cause leaks. If you switch your heating on once a month during the summer (just for 5 minutes) then this can keep the valves moving freely, give the pump a workout and will help to prevent issues.
