Kitchen Tap Replacement and Repair is one of the most common jobs we carry out in the Billericay kitchen. Older taps regularly spring leaks in which case they should be replaced or repaired. Worn washers or mechanisms cause dripping taps. The first step is to establish what type of tap you have these include Ball, Cartridge, Disc and Washer each of these mechanisms controls the flow of water and all will wear out eventually. We carry most parts in stock for most taps, so a tap repair’s usually a quick and easy job. Sometimes taps are so old the replacement mechanism cannot be sourced and sometimes taps leak out of the body in this instance water has caused corrosion to the tap itself and will need replacing. Most Billericay homes have flexible hoses attached to their taps which allows both the hot and cold water to be shut off beneath the taps. Hoses permit a quick change over when replacing taps. Older homes that lack flexible hoses will have them fitted as standard for every tap replacement we undertake.
Waste Disposal Units are small, discreet and a practical way of disposing of food waste. Food is ground into small pieces, mixed with water and flushed down the drain. Waste disposal units use little energy and are environmentally friendly our Plumbers have fitted lots over the years in Billericay so if you want one let us know. Our Plumbers can deal with any Waste Disposal problems also, in case you run into any issues.
Every Kitchen in Billericay has a Washing Machine and most will have A Dishwasher we’re happy to Plumb in any of these essential appliances our Plumbers will make sure they’re connected and levelled properly ensuring you’ll never suffer any leaks from the cold feed (a common problem on DIY fitting) or any problems caused by incorrect levelling.
The Bathroom has more Plumbing than any other room in the house A typical Billericay Bathroom will feature a Toilet, Bath, Basin and Shower all of which will receive a lot of use and as such parts will need repairing, replacing and servicing. Bathroom Taps are prone to failure just as kitchen taps are and again we can repair or replace bathroom taps quickly and efficiently.
One of the most common Plumbing problems is the dreaded blocked Toilet which can sometimes be unblocked by the homeowner with a plunger. Deeper blockages that won’t shift will need the attention of a professional Plumber, sooner rather than later. A blockage (depending on where it is) can render all toilets in the home useless and unworkable but don’t worry we’ll have the obstruction shifted in no time, give us a call, and our Billericay Plumber will be with you ASAP. Toilets sometimes overfill, continuously fill or even leak. Ball valve issues inside the cistern are quick and straightforward jobs; toilet components are pretty much the same no matter what toilet you have whether that be a close coupled, toilet, wall hung or corner toilet. Leaks can be more complicated but we always get them fixed.
The TM Hughes team includes a full-time Bathroom Fitter who will work with you to design and fit the bathroom of your dreams. Every step of the Bathroom design is carefully planned so your bathroom is built to your taste and thoroughly functional.

With us, you can rest assured all your shower requirements will be met.
Every point in your kitchen and bathroom where water comes has a waste so used water can exit into the drain without flooding your home. Waste’s serve toilets, showers, baths, basins, sinks, washing machines, dishwashers and Saniflo’s. Sometimes waste pipes block or are in the process of blocking, if your toilets filling up with excess water or water is draining very slowly from showers, baths, sinks etc. then you have a blockage in your waste system. Try unblocking with a plunger which will usually work on less severe blockages. In the event, you can’t shift a blockage yourself our local Plumber will have it cleared in minutes. Never ignore a blockage they’ll never go away on their own and will only get worse before blocking completely.
We offer a full Saniflo Installation service to the residents of Billericay. The invention of the Saniflo system enabled the installation of Toilets anywhere in the home. In days gone by Toilets needed to be fitted next to the soil stack, so Toilet installation was restricted, this changed when Saniflo released their Macerator equipment. The macerator pump used by Saniflos breaks down Toilet waste into a slurry which’s pumped into the sewer. Toilets can be fitted anywhere in the home, or business premises with a Saniflo system they are also compatible with washing machines, sinks, showers and baths.
Water Tank Services
Need a water tank installed or replaced? No problem! Our Billericay Plumbers have installed many over the years and will guide you on the best size tank and the best location. Every situation’s different the size of your tank will depend on your water system, and the shape will depend on the space you have available. We always ensure tanks are fitted as high as possible to give the best possible water pressure and that they are safe from freezing and dust contamination.

Emergency Plumbing Billericay
TM Hughes & Son are on hand 24/7 to deal with Plumbing & Gas Emergencies that may occur, and unlike some other Plumbers in the area, we have no call out charges. A Plumber can get to you within 2 hours if your issue is urgent here’s some damage limitation procedures you need to undertake before we can get to you if you’re not sure please call us and we can go over these tasks on the Phone.
Leaking water is usually caused by a burst pipe if water’s leaking from anywhere (ie from the ceiling) the first thing to do is to shut off the mains water supply at the mains stopcock. The mains stopcock’s usually located in the kitchen (not always though) and controls the flow of water to your home from the mains water supply in the street. Make sure you know where your mains stopcock is the last time you want to look for it is in the middle of an emergency (you’ll be surprised how many people this happens to). Once the water’s shut off any further damage will be prevented, you may have to shut off the water at your water tank also, we can advise you on this over the phone. Burst pipes are a common winter problem uninsulated pipes are prone to freezing, frozen water expands and this expansion’s often enough to split pipes make sure your pipes are insulated and if you feel one’s frozen get it defrosted ASAP (we can insulate and defrost pipes also) before the frozen pipe turns into a burst pipe.
Gas Leaks are very serious if you smell Gas shut the supply off at the Shut Off Valve (if you don’t know where this is in your home find out in case you ever experience a Gas emergency) evacuate everyone from the property don’t smoke and don’t turn on any lights or appliances. Sparks can cause gas to ignite and large gas leaks can cause huge explosions so don’t leave anything to chance. Open all windows and doors in the home (only if it’s safe to do so) and wait for an engineer to arrive, do not go back into your home or switch on the gas until one of our Gas Safe Registered Engineers has told you it’s safe to do so.
Any home that has a fuel-burning appliance must have a Carbon Monoxide alarm. Carbon Monoxide is invisible, scentless and can kill, make sure you’re protected. In the event, a carbon monoxide alarm starts beeping in your home get yourself, your family and anyone else in the property out immediately and call us, do not re-enter until one of our Gas Safe Registered Engineers has checked your appliance and property and given you the all clear. Call an ambulance if anyone’s experiencing vomiting, dizziness, headaches, confusion or nausea, all signs of carbon monoxide poisoning.
