Our Plumbing & Heating Services Available In Colchester
Our general Plumbing services cover everything from the point your water enters the home at the mains stopcock and exits down the drain. Whatever your Plumbing requirements or problems, we will help you with our vast Plumbing installation, maintenance and repair services which cover the following…
Appliances such as your washing machine and dishwasher require a cold water feed pipe and waste pipe to drain used water. We can run these pipes to any point in your home and add convenient shut-off taps for easy connection, disconnection and installation of your appliances.
The mains stopcock is an essential and often overlooked plumbing mechanism that controls water flow into your Plumbing system and home.
The mains stopcock is used to shut off the water in an emergency or a Plumbing installation.
You must know where your mains stopcock is located and that it works. Old stopcocks can seize up, requiring pliers to free, leading to the stopcock braking, a nightmare scenario in a Plumbing emergency.
Find your mains stopcock, note the location and test it. If it’s seized up or old, we’ll fit a new one for you. Better safe than sorry.
The Plumbing pipework carries hot and cold water to your appliances, taps and showers. We install and repair all Plumbing pipework. We can also make modifications to your existing pipe system if required.
The advent of Saniflo systems allows homeowners to fit toilets, showers, dishwashers, and washing machines anywhere in the home. Before, they had to be fitted against the outside wall close to the soil stack or drain.
Saniflos chop the waste into a fine slurry and can pump it significant distances into the drain. So now we can fit you an extra Toilet, Shower or appliance in any room, cupboard, loft or basement.
We fit showers that work with all types of Plumbing systems—ranging from electric showers that run off your cold water supply to showers that work with the hot water produced by your central heating system.
Typical showers we fit include mixer, thermostatic, eco, smart and digital.
Power Showers are an option for central heating systems that utilise a hot water storage cylinder. Adding a Pump will provide a fast and powerful shower experience.
We offer a pump replacement, maintenance, and repair service for those with power showers already installed.
Our Plumbers fit all types of taps to sinks, baths, basins and outside walls. All taps fitted include the latest ceramic disc cartridges that last a long time, don’t leak and are straightforward to replace. In addition, we include tap connectors and shut off valves for easy repair and replacement.
We install, repair and unblock (see below) all types of Toilets, including close-coupled, back to the wall, wall hung, comfort and corner. The range of Toilets covers all spaces and users.
All Toilets are fitted with modern and efficient water-saving flush mechanisms. We also replace old flush mechanisms if your’s is broken or no longer works properly.
Waste Disposal Units
We fit Waste Disposal Units under kitchen sinks to provide a fast, clean and environmentally friendly method of disposing of kitchen waste. The unit grinds the waste food into pieces before expelling it down the drain. As a result, waste disposal units use little energy and are self-cleaning.
Waste Pipes & Overflows
Where water comes in, it must go out again. Your sink, shower, toilet and water fed appliances are connected to waste pipes. We fit new waste pipe systems and deal with the wastes and overflows used in the kitchen and Bathroom. We also deal with blockages which fall under our emergency Plumbing services.
Leaks and blockages are an inevitable consequence of running a Plumbing system.
Our Emergency Plumbing services swiftly deal with these issues and include same-day service and no call-out charges.
Blockages occur in all waste pipes found in a plumbing system: sink drains, bath and shower wastes and toilets. If you have a blockage, we will aim to get an emergency Plumber over to you within a couple of hours.
Burts Pipes generally occur in winter when vulnerable pipes freeze, expand and split the pipe. When the temperatures rise and the pipe defrosts, a leak occurs. If you have a burst pipe shut off your mains water supply via the mains stopcock and give us a call, one of our Plumbers will tell you what to do next and arrange a time to visit.
Leaks can spring from anywhere in the Plumbing system; some might not seem that severe. However, they should be dealt with as they will eventually damage parts of your property. The tightening of seals or fitting replacement parts usually resolves most leaks.
We offer Bathroom Design, Installation, Refurbishment and Repair services. We can install you a brand new bathroom or upgrade parts of your current Bathroom to give it a new look.
We offer free no-obligation surveys and quotes for Bathroom Installation undertaken by an experienced bathroom designer and fitter.
We can also repair and replace any fixtures or fittings that are broken or no longer function correctly.
Our Heating Services cover all types of central heating systems. All work is undertaken by experienced Gas Safe Registered heating engineers with many years of experience.
We install New Boilers and offer free no-obligation quotes. We are accredited by several of the UK’s leading Boiler manufacturers and fit any type and make of Boiler.
Combination and System Boilers that include a pressurised hot water cylinder are the most common types we fit. We also install traditional Regular Boilers for those with old central heating systems.
All Boilers are modern condensing Boilers with 90-99% energy efficiency ratings, which will save you money on your energy bills if you are currently running an old inefficient Boiler.
Boiler Servicing & Repairs
We also Service and Repair Boilers. Servicing involves cleaning your Boiler thoroughly and testing the gas rate and flue to ensure your Boiler’s burning and expelling gas correctly.
Annual Boiler Servicing is the best protection against Boiler breakdown while ensuring your home insurance and Boiler warranty covers you if you have a fault.
If your Boiler has failed or you’re experiencing issues, we offer same day Boiler Repair service, including reasonable rates and no call out charges.
Our Boiler Servicing and Repairs covers all types and makes of Boiler.
We cleanse dirty, inefficient central heating systems with Powerflushing. As central heating systems are run year after year, they accumulate limescale and debris, which prevents the system from running properly. In addition, costing more to run will provide inferior heat.
By Powerflushing your system under pressure with special chemicals, we will clean your system so it will run efficiently, heating your home correctly.
We install, service and repair Underfloor Heating systems, both wet and electric.
Underfloor Heating provides unparalleled luxury, energy efficiency, and other benefits over conventional radiators.
A highly versatile system can be fitted into any style, size, and property type, no matter the age. We can install it in a single room or your own home.
We offer free no-obligation surveys and quotes for Underfloor Heating. If you already have a system, we can help you with maintenance and
Gas Fire Servicing
Your Gas Fire should be serviced annually to ensure it’s safe and running efficiently. We service all types of Gas Fire and all flue and chimney types.
An engineer will open up your fire, clean and test all the working parts, and make adjustments, so the correct gas rate is burnt.
Gas Cooker Installation
We install new gas cookers and disconnect old ones. Gas Cooker Installation is a professional job that requires accompanying certification to prove the safe fitting.
Gas Safety Inspections
We undertake Gas Safety Inspections for Colchester landlords and issue CP12 certificates to verify the properties rented safely and legally.
An annual Gas Safety Inspection is a legal requirement for landlords. In addition, the gas system and all gas appliances are inspected and tested by a Gas Safe Registered engineer.
We undertake all heating jobs, big and small, covering all parts and components of central heating systems.
Carbon Monoxide Alarms
Carbon monoxide alarms should accompany all gas appliances. We will always recommend alarms when they are not present on the gas jobs we undertake. Alarms can be standard battery-powered or wired in. We can fit both types for you.
Central Heating Controls
Good central heating controls are essential for the optimal running of your central heating system. New controls can provide improved accuracy and setting of your system. We fit the latest digital and smart controls so that you can control your Heating from anywhere via an app.
Central Heating Pumps
We fit and replace all central heating pumps. Old pumps can cause issues with central heating systems, and if they fail, your Heating won’t run at all. Pump replacement is usually a quick and simple job for our engineers.
Immersion Heaters fitted to hot water cylinders provide hot water backup, which is helpful if your Boiler breaks down. We fit Immersion Heaters to both vented and unvented cylinders, whether they are new or existing.
Radiators & Valves
We fit thermostatic valves as standard when we fit new radiators. We also upgrade old valves on existing radiators. Thermostatic valves allow you to set the temperature of each room individually. Even better, are Smart thermostatic radiator valves can be set with an app on your smart device.
We install, service and repair all types of water cylinders, both vented and unvented. If you have a traditional Regular Boiler, you will have feed and expansion water tanks. We cover those also.
