Frequently Asked Questions

Plumbing Services in South London

Evidence of a pipe leak isn’t always obvious. A sudden spike in your water bill may be an indication that you are using more water than usual, which can mean a leak. To test this, turn off all taps and appliances and check your water meter for a reading. Return 30 minutes later for a second reading – if the meter reading has changed, you probably have a leak. If you need assistance finding the source and fixing your pipe leak, our team for specialists can help.
A gas leak can be incredibly dangerous to your health if undetected. Carbon monoxide caused by a faulty boiler is a ‘silent killer’, being completely odourless; installing a carbon monoxide detector will ensure you are alerted to any traces in your home. Old and damaged cookers can also cause gas leaks; the most tell-tale sign of this type of gas leak is the smell. If you notice the smell of gas in your home, avoid lighting any sparks or matches, as this could cause a fire or small explosion. A gas leak will require the urgent attention of a trained professional.
If a water pipe bursts in your home, you should immediately turn off your water supply and electricity in the affected room, as well as remove any furniture from the affected area to avoid damage. You should then contact a plumber immediately.

Yes, we can carry these out for your boiler and can arrange to return on an annual basis to ensure your mandatory landlords inspections are conducted as per the LGSI mandatory requirements. We issues Landlord Gas Safety Records for property owners and can conduct ongoing maintenance and repairs as required.

The most common cause for radiators failing to heat up is trapped air. You can tell this is the case if your radiator is hot at the bottom but cold at the top; in this case, you’ll need to bleed your radiators. The process is simple, simply use your radiator key to unscrew the bleed screw at the bottom of your radiator enough to cause a hissing sound. This is the sound of the trapped air escaping; once the noise stops, screw the bleed screw back in place. If this still doesn’t fix your radiator’s problem, one of our plumbers would be happy to assist you further.

The water circulating around your central heating system is contaminated with rust, sludge and debris from the pipes due to internal corrosion. This debris will build up over time and can cause a number of faults; eventually preventing your radiators from heating up and your boiler from working efficiently.

We connect our  power flush machine and magnet filter to your central heating system. This can be done via a radiator or by removing the central heating pump.

Water then flows through the system, gathering all of the debris along the way, which collects on the magnet. After this, the chemical cleanser is added and pumped around until the water comes out clear.

Neutraliser is added to compensate for any cleanser which may remain in the pipes, and an Inhibitor is added as a final step to help prevent any future corrosion. The radiators are then balanced to ensure that the whole system is working efficiently.
