Water leaking from your hot water system can be caused by numerous things, for example, a faulty circulation pipe or cracked piping. It is important to contact us as soon as you can if you detect any leakage as the issue can become serious quite quickly, becoming a flooding and corrosion risk.

Hot water runs out quickly and regularly

This is a common occurrence, and no one wants their shower to be icy cold! This problem can again be the result of many variants; however, it is most commonly the result of a faulty valve or problems with your thermostat. These problems are easily fixed, so the quicker that you contact us, the quicker the issue will be resolved.

Variable water pressure and changing temperatures of water

These signs normally indicate a problem with your boiler, especially if they are consistent. It is important to call us when this happens as faults with a boiler can be potentially dangerous and it is our job to ensure that your hot water system is working efficiently and safely.

The system is making unusual sounds

Listen out for any out-of-the-ordinary sounds coming from your boiler – these could be banging, hissing, dripping or gurgling sounds. This issue is usually caused by a build-up of air bubbles and limescale within your hot water system and we can easily solve this problem for you.

Burst water pipe

Burst water pipes can cause a lot of internal and external damage at a quick pace. If you notice that you have a burst water pipe, make sure that you turn off your water mains and call us directly.

Gas leaks

If you suspect that there is a gas leak in your home, it is vital that you turn off your gas mains and increase ventilation in your home by opening doors and windows. Gas leaks are extremely harmful to your health and highly dangerous, so please refrain from using any electrical equipment and call us immediately.

Broken toilets

Nobody wants to deal with the unpleasantness of a broken toilet and as one of the most used plumbing fixtures of a home, it is important that it is functioning properly. We can fix any toilet-related issues, such as clogged toilets, overflowing or leaking.
