Burst Pipes

Burst Pipes is a very common plumbing problem. There are several causes for it, but the most important ones are aged pipes misuse and freezing conditions.

In all the above cases, it is better to call an approved, qualified plumber. The result of a burst pipe can vary from a small issues to long term water damage to your property. A burst pipe can cause just minor inconvenience, but more serious accidents can put people out of homes and even necessitate the closing down of the water supply for an entire area.

We specialise in repairing burst pipes but also preventing this from happening. The cost of fixing the burst pipe is negligible compared to the costs of water damage so if you feel your house plumbing needs a service or if you notice even the smallest water leak, don’t hesitate to call us. A small preventative cost will save you substantial amounts of money in the long run.

What to do in the case of a Burst Pipe:

Look for any sign of a burst pipe. Loss of water pressure, strange noises or unusual electric faults can be signs of a burst pipe.

If you have a burst pipe, stop using any electrical devices, don’t touch any light switches or sockets as the water can infiltrate into electrical systems

Try to turn off the water from the stopcock and ring a specialised plumber.

Attic Storage Tanks

Polythene cisterns are the new standard in attic storage tanks. They are corrosion free and the are more space efficient. Older houses who were fitted with galvanized-steel tanks are in danger of these getting corroded over time and cause damaging leakages and even flooding of your home.

Assured Quality Plumbing can arrange to have your old attic storage tank replaced with a new and modern polythene storage tank.

Our recommendation is that if you are in doubt about the state of your attic storage tank, to contact us and call us over for an inspection of your storage tank. In many cases, even if a replacement is not necessary, a full sterilisation of the unit may be necessary.

Also, after having another bathroom or shower installed, this may require an upgrade of your attic storage tank, to cope with the higher demand.

Hot Water Cylinders

They go under different names such as “boiler”, “immersion”, “hot tank” etc. However “cylinder” is the correct word for the device that heats and stores the hot water for your house.

More modern cylinders come built with a layer of foam insulation so there is no need for lagging jackets to keep them insulated. These new type cylinders are called “rapid recovery cylinders”, meaning they will re-heat quicker after the hot water is being used.

If you have a leaking hot water cylinder or your immersion has stopped working, don’t hesitate to call an Assured Quality Plumbing specialist to either provide a repair or, where this is not possible, to recommend a suitable cylinder replacement.
