What is a Plumber?

Plumbers are tradespersons speciliasing in the installation and maintenance of systems required for potable water, drainage, sewage and irrigation systems on residential, commercial and industrial properties. Plumbers are required to complete extensive training before becoming certified with local associations such as the UK Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineers. Always check the plumber's credentials before allowing them to work on your water system.

Additional Services

plumbing services aren't limited to unblocking loos and fixing broken taps. Plumbers also install water purification and filtration systems. These range from simple filters placed on kitchen taps to improve the quality of drinking water, to more complicated purification systems as required for drinking borehole water. Some companies offer to locate natural water on your property and install borehole systems. Plumbers also offer efficiency consultations, helping you discover how best to conserve water.

Plumber Costs

Many offer free of charge emergency call outs, charging only for parts required. If the job is more extensive, requiring diagnostic equipment, new parts and extensive labour, then the more expensive the service is likely to be. Regardless of how big the plumbing problem, an affordable solution does it exist and we can help you find it.

emergency after hours plumbers

After-Hours Plumbing Services

Unfortunately, plumbing problems don’t wait until business hours to arise. Living with a clogged toilet or backed-up bathroom sink is a nightmare, to say the very least. Fortunately, many plumbers are available day and night, even on weekends and holidays. Plumbing contracting companies keep at least one on-call plumber who will respond to these emergency calls. Bear in mind that after-hours service will sometimes cost significantly more than service scheduled ahead of time and during business hours. This is why it is so very important to clean your drains regularly and take proper care of the plumbing throughout your home or office.

 plumbing inspections

Plumbing Inspections

Most residents only think to call a plumber when they’re experiencing some sort of issue, whether it’s a water leak or a clogged drain. Plumbing inspections are also very important as they can help you pinpoint problems before they become expensive repairs. A plumbing inspection can:

  • Help find very small leaks that may become larger over time, allowing you to get the necessary repairs before extensive damage occurs.
  • Pick up partial clogs that can be easily removed before they completely stop the flow of water.
  • Identify the potential for a sewer backup, which is not only a headache, but also quite unhealthy for those living or working on the premises.
  • Find standing moisture which may lead to dangerous mould growth.

A plumbing inspection is also a good idea for potential homeowners who are interested in purchasing a specific property. Such an inspection can point out any problems that may not be made clear by the seller, which can save you thousands of pounds in the end.

avoid complicated DIY plumbing

Don't DIY

Attempting complicated DIY plumbing can be messy, unpleasant and downright dangerous. Rated plumbers offer affordable services so that you don't have to get your hands dirty or expose yourself to harmful chemicals. Over the counter products can lead to respiratory and eye problems if not used correctly. These are often toxic and pose a threat to children and pets if left in the open. Locating and fixing a leak can be tricky, so before you carry out any major works such as digging up your whole garden in search of a leak, let us help you find affordable, professional services.

Your plumbing questions answered

How do I know if I need a professional plumber?

Although there are small jobs that homeowners can do on their own when it comes to plumbing, professional plumbers are called in to handle tougher jobs and prevent additional damage to pipes and drains. The best rule of thumb is: when in doubt, call a professional.

How can I ensure that my plumber is qualified?

A qualified and knowledgeable plumber will be licensed and insured. You can also ask for references for a plumber to get an idea of the type of work he or she has done in the past.

How much do professional plumbers charge?

Professional plumbers will usually charge a flat hourly rate, usually around £20-£40/hr., in addition to any parts that may need to be ordered or replaced. This can change depending on the difficulty of the job or the severity of the problem.

Is it a good idea to call a plumber for preventive maintenance?

Most of the systems in your house can benefit from some preventative maintenance, but most of the maintenance that can be done on your plumbing system usually does not require the services of a professional plumber.

Which is better, copper or PVC pipes?

Copper may be better whenever you need flexible pipes, while PVC might be best if you do not need your pipes to bend a great deal. Copper pipes may also be needed whenever you need a great deal of water pressure.

What if I need plumbers in the middle of the night?

If you’re experiencing a backed-up drain or sewer during the night, it’s up to you to decide how to proceed. You might choose to wait until morning for a backed-up drain, or you may choose to find a hotel room overnight for a sewer problem. Remember, though, that most plumbing companies keep on-call plumbers for this very reason. They will likely charge more for their services, but the benefits may outweigh the costs in many cases.

Can I do plumbing work myself?

Some simple tasks, such as using a plunger on a clogged toilet or even clearing small clogs can be performed by homeowners without much trouble. However, larger clogs, leaking water pipes, and sewer issues should be handled by professional plumbers. In fact, some locations have plumbing codes that require all work to be performed by licensed or certified plumbers.
