Emergency Plumbing Maldon
Various Gas & Plumbing emergencies can happen in your home, these are
- Frozen Pipes
- Burst Pipes
- Boiler Failure
- Carbon Monoxide
- Gas Leaks
Some emergencies are more severe than others a Frozen Pipe can cause a Burst pipe which can flood your home potentially creating thousands of pounds of damage. Blockages can put your Toilet, Bath, Shower and Sink out of action and can cause flooding also. Boiler Failure will leave you without hot water and heating, highly unpleasant especially in the depths of winter.
One of our Maldon based Plumbers can be at your home within 2 hours at any time of the day or night, there’s no call out charges, and we charge good rates, so you know you’ll not be overcharged.
In the event of a Plumbing Emergency call us immediately we’ll get a Plumber over to you ASAP, and we’ll tell you what to do over the phone to limit the damage, here’s what you should do in emergencies.
Frozen & Burst Pipes
In the depths of winter exposed uninsulated pipes can freeze, pipes outside and in the loft are most at risk. Make sure your pipes are insulated. Insulation’s the best protection against freezing it’s cheap to buy and easy to fit. For those who aren’t into DIY we can insulate your pipes for you.
Symptoms of frozen pipes include slow running taps, frost on pipes and weird smells coming from your tap or drain. Frozen pipes need defrosting immediately, but won’t they defrost on their own? Yes, they will but the longer the pipes frozen, the more the frozen water will expand. Expanded frozen water inside a pipe will eventually cause it to burst. When the pipe defrosts water will leak causing damage in the process. The worst types of leaks are ones in the loft. Voids will fill with water and eventually burst like a ballon flooding your home. You can catch these types of leaks quickly by noticing drips coming from the ceiling. In the event of a leak wherever it’s coming from shut off your water supply at the mains stopcock. The mains stopcock controls the water entering your home from the mains water supply outside, usually located in the kitchen but sometimes elsewhere. Make sure you know where its located and make sure it works. Some have been left open for a very long time and won’t close if this is the case one of our Plumbers can release or replace with a new one. Leaks that are coming through the ceiling are usually caused by pipes supplying a water tank in the loft; the water tank will have a stopcock shut this off also.
Blockages occur mainly in Toilets and Drains. Toilet pans that are filling up (and even worse spilling over) and slow draining indicate an obstruction. The drains in your sink, bathroom basin, bath and shower can become clogged up with debris such as food and hair if you notice gurgling or foul smells coming from the drains this means your pipes are obstructed somewhere and need clearing. There are two types of blockages full where no water will pass or partial blockages where water will pass slowly. A full blockage is more urgent as it puts your toilet, shower, bath or sinks out of action (unless you want to flood your home). You’ll only get away with a partial blockage for so long. Eventually, it will block fully and need the attention of an emergency Plumber, but no need to worry any blockages you have can be dealt with by our team quickly and cleanly.
Boiler Failure commonly occurs with old and neglected boilers. All boilers should be serviced once a year which will protect you from Boiler breakdown and Carbon Monoxide poisoning an annual service will also make your Boiler run as efficiently as possible which will save you money. TM Hughes Boiler Servicing is among the cheapest in Maldon, and you will get a full, thorough boiler service that conforms to Gas Safe procedures.
In the event your Boiler fails you’ll be left without hot water and heating all our Plumbers are Gas Safe Registered engineers who’ll have your Boiler back up and running in no time. We carry most parts in stock for Boiler repairs and parts we don’t carry we can source the same day. We work on all types of Boiler, whatever the brand, these include Worcester Bosch (were accredited installers) Vaillant, Baxi, Potterton and Glow-Worm to name a few.
Time for a new Boiler? We regularly carry out New Boiler installations in the area. A new Boiler will give you a warmer cosier home with optimal energy efficiency leading to cheaper gas bills. Let us know if you would like a free no obligation quote for a new Boiler also, please note we can offer up to a 10-year warranty on some Boilers we install.
Most homes in Maldon use fuel-burning appliances to supply their heat meaning they are at risk from carbon monoxide poisoning. Homes must have Carbon Monoxide Alarms fitted, Carbon Monoxide can kill, and the only way to detect it is with an Alarm that will beep loudly if Carbon Monoxides present. Alarms can be purchased cheaply from most DIY shops which you can fit yourself, or one of our engineers can supply and fit alarms for you. Don’t leave anything to chance, protect yourself and your family. Thanks to advancing Gas Appliance technology, building regulations, skilled Gas engineers and the Gas Safe Register Carbon Monoxide leaks are rare, but there are still 25 deaths every year in the UK which is too much. Evacuate yourself and your family from your home if your Carbon Monoxide Alarm starts beeping and call us. Don’t re-enter your home until we have checked your appliances tested your home and given you the all clear If anyone experiences symptoms of nausea, vomiting, dizziness, headaches or confusion call an ambulance immediately.
Gas Leaks are another potentially fatal occurrence on smelling Gas shut off your Gas Supply immediately, don’t smoke or switch on any appliances, open all windows and doors (if possible) evacuate your home and give us a call, don’t go back into your home until we have checked your Gas Supply and okayed it.
Domestic Plumbing Maldon
Taps in both the kitchen and bathroom can be repaired or replaced. Most kitchens will have mixer taps connected to both the hot and cold water supply which allows mixing to obtain the ideal temperature. Traditional Pillar Taps can be found in both the Kitchen and Bathroom while Monobloc taps are more common in bathrooms. Whatever taps you want to work on they should all be installed with flexible hoses which allow the tap to be shut off without having to switch off the whole water supply. We always supply and fit flexible hoses with new tap installations. All taps use one of four mechanisms Ball, Cartridge, Disc or Washer. All Tap mechanisms wear out eventually causing constant (and annoying dripping) We carry tap mechanisms in stock and can quickly repair any worn tap. Any Taps that are beyond repair we can replace quickly also.
Not only do we unblock Toilets we install and repair them also we can help if your cistern is continually filling, or your Toilet needs to be flushed repeatedly or if it won’t flush at all. All Toilets work the same way and can be repaired swiftly. All types of Toilet can be installed whether you have a traditional bathroom and want a classic close coupled toilet or maybe you want a square wall hung Toilet for your modern bathroom? Whatever your requirements your friendly Maldon Plumber will meet them. Toilets no longer have to be limited to the bath/cloakroom we can install them anywhere you want. In a cupboard, your garage, the loft anywhere’s possible with a Saniflo system. A Saniflo sits behind a toilet and utilises blades to cut down waste into fine particles which’s then pumped through thin pipes directly into the sewer. Saniflos will work with other appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines and showers giving you have the freedom to install what you want where you want.
Shower installation, replacement and repair are offered as part of our plumbing services. We can install and repair any shower including Mixer Showers which use water from the hot and cold water supply, Electric Showers which run off the cold water supply, And Power Showers which use water from the hot and cold supply with a pump to boost the pressure, and if you’re having pump problems we can usually cure them or install new pumps where needed. For those that want to save on their water and energy bills, we can fit an Eco shower that uses 50% water than regular mixer showers. Electric and Mixer Eco showers are available we’ll ensure the best one for your bathroom’s fitted for maximum energy efficiency. A Thermostatic shower’s the best bet for residents who have children which maintains the set ratio of hot and cold water at all times eliminating the risk of scalding. The most convenient shower we fit are digital showers which have separate control panels (wired or wireless) that work as a remote control, so no more getting into a cold shower and waiting for it to warm up. Common shower issues we fix include leaking heads, temperature fluctuations, low water pressure, cold water and no water.
Kitchen Appliances can be fitted such as Dishwashers and Washing Machines our Plumber will ensure they are connected correctly to the water supply with no leaks and that they are level ensuring they run properly without any problems. We also fit and repair Waste Disposal Units that sit under the kitchen sink. Waste Disposal Units use little energy; they grind food into fine waste that’s flushed into the sewer. A clean and convenient appliance for dealing with your food waste they’re also incredibly environmentally friendly.
