TOP TIP

When the toilet starts running on in the pan or if you have an older toilet and the overflow for the toilet is going you need to replace the ball valve also known as float or fill valve, sometimes just the rubber washer but normally the complete valve is a more sensible option. Can you turn the supply off until the plumber gets to you?

SOLUTION

If you haven’t already got an isolator valve put on the toilet supply we can install one for you when we do the ball valve.

Basins & Vanity Units

Replace broken or damaged basins.
Silicone sealant install or replacement, soap dish and toothbrush holders installed.
Splash backs installed.

TOP TIP

Modern taps use cartridges not washers not like the good old days, If the tap goes wrong do you know the part you need well chances are no.

SOLUTION

Keep copies of all taps and showers warranties and instructions you have, it makes it far easier to get parts when they need replacing, as an idea put it in a folder with other house hold documents such as your insurance certificates so you can lay your hands on them when you need them. We can then order and install the parts you need.

Baths

Install new fitted or free standing baths, in both acrylic and pressed steel.
Install repair or replace bath taps, bath shower mixer taps, Bath waste, overflow fillers bath traps bath panels bath screens.

TOP TIP

When installing new baths, if you are going to tile the panel make sure you leave access for the pipework underneath you never know when you need to access the trap or replace the taps.

TOP TIP

Keep the silicone around shower trays and baths in good condition even if done properly it will need to be changed every 4 or 5 yrs. Once it wares away it loses its effectiveness and can cause hundreds of pounds damage, it isn’t there just to look nice it is there for a reason. Also use a hair guard over the shower waste to stop unnecessary costly and annoying blockages.

SOLUTION

we can remove the existing silicone and replace in a range of colours to suit.

TOP TIP

Always know where your mains incoming stop cock is located and make sure it is accessible and in working works, because one day you will wish that you had and then its’ too late.

SOLUTION

If you cant find it or it doesn’t work we can install one for you. If you can’t bend down low or have bad grip we can install one at high level with a lever valve make life easier for you.

TOP TIP

I often see some unusual things on cold water tanks in loft, they make lids for a purpose why would you use cardboard, carpet, or even rotting floor boards. By not installing a proper lid vent and jacket (bye law 30 kit) you run the risk of your tank not only freezing debris can fall in and cause blockages, even worse rodents and other creatures could be taking a bath, drinking or urinating in it, don’t fancy using that water to wash my face or brush my teeth.

SOLUTION

If you have no lid , broken lid or old carpet over it we can clean out your tank and add a new lid and jacket, if the tank is really dirty it may be worth us cholarnating and cleaning the tank and down services. We will be glad to do that for you.
