Toilet Humour

Posted by: William Anderson Posted Date: 06/03/2013


Since we try not to take ourselves too seriously and always enjoy our jobs, we thought we'd post a few jokes about plumbers and plumbing in here. Let us know what you think and send us any you think we should include!



Someone has broken into our local police station and stolen the toilet. Right now the Police say they have nothing to go on...



There just happened to be a solicitors convention and a plumbing convention happening in London at the same time. There was a party of three plumbers and three solicitors leaving Leeds and taking the train to the conventions. As they were standing in line for tickets, the lawyers noticed that the plumbers only bought one ticket. The lawyers bought their three tickets and boarded the train but watched the plumbers to see how they were going to get by with only one ticket. After boarding, the three plumbers squeezed into the toilet. Finally the Ticket Inspector came through the carriage, knocked on the door as he said, "Ticket please". The door cracked open and an arm reached out and gave the Inspector the ticket. After their conventions were over, the lawyers decided to do the same thing as the plumbers on the way back so they only purchased one ticket. However they noticed the plumbers didn't purchase any tickets at all. They were intrigued but weren't too concerned though because they were saving some money. So they all boarded the train and the lawyers packed into the tiny toilet. After a few minutes, one of the plumbers came by and knocked on the door "Ticket please."



A Fulham lad is admiring the Niagara Falls when a local approaches him and says, ‘Bet you’ve got nothing like that where you come from.’ ‘No,’ admits the Fulham resident. ‘But we’ve got plumbers who could fix it.’



A dog goes into a Plumbers Merchants and says: "I'd like a job please". The owner says: "We don't hire dogs, why don't you go join the circus?" The dog replies: "What would the circus want with a plumber?"



What's the difference between a doctor and a plumber? A doctor washes his hands after he has gone to the toilet, but a plumber washes his hands before.



Did you hear about the miracle of the blind plumber? He pick up a hammer and saw.



A good flush beats a full house every time.

How to Avoid Frozen Pipes

Posted by: Crawford Anderson Posted Date: 31/01/2013


It is the time of year that you may experience having your pipes freeze when another cold spell comes along. This problem can be very inconvenient and fairly expensive if you have to call a plumber out to fix it, so the best way is to avoid your pipes freezing altogether. There are two main ways that you can prevent your pipes from freezing. First, you can make sure that your pipes are heated or that heating is left on near to them. Another way to prevent your pipes from freezing is to make sure that the pipes are insulated, all of the DIY shops have pipe lagging and loft insulation that can be used to protect your pipes.

At this time of the year be sure that you have disconnected any outside drains and garden hoses, turn-off the indoor cut-off valve that feeds the outside tap and open the outdoor tap to fully drain the system. This helps to prevent any remaining water in the pipes that are exposed to below-zero temperatures from freezing.

Keep the house warm, and if you know of any pipes that tend to freeze, decide how to keep them warm. If you think you are going to have freezing problems, run some water through the pipes on a regular basis and this may prevent them from freezing.


If you have frozen pipes and need help, contact our 24 hour emergency service on 020 7386 8888
