We never think about the pipes in our homes, they are hidden away and continuously supply us with hot and cold water. However, being so well hidden means that we seldom notice the small issues that crop up and it never takes long for a small issue to turn into a huge problem.
If you notice any of the symptoms of worn-out pipes, you should give us a call and let one of our expert plumbers take a look. Even before they break, damaged pipes are capable of causing lots of trouble and generating plenty of other work in related systems.
Your plumbing and drainage systems are working constantly and there is a lot of energy and force involved in moving all of that water around. This causes strain on the inner walls of your pipes and eventually, that strain causes your pipes to degrade.
Heated water causes your pipes to wear away faster as does the chemicals that make it safe to drink. The hardness of the water affects them too. There are other factors that affect your pipes and depending on where you live, your pipes may wear out relatively quickly.
Once your pipes become very corroded, they are going to cause problems that are hard to miss. For instance, the water will have a brownish tint and will taste metallic. Unfortunately, if your pipes are this far gone then they need urgent attention as you are very little time away from a major disaster. In cases such as these don’t hesitate to call No1PHD so we can solve this issue for you as quickly as possible.
When your pipes are not this bad you can ask yourselves some question to assess their state. Are your drains clogging frequently? Are you experiencing general plumbing problems which never stay fixed? Do you have unexpectedly low water pressure that seems to be getting worse?
If you are answering yes to some or all of these question you need to have your pipes inspected. It is also worth getting your pipes regularly inspected just to make sure everything is in working order since you may not notice some issues until they become large problems.
If you get in contact with us, we’ll organise an inspection and quote to replace your pipes if there is need to. No need to worry, our expert plumbers and drainage technicians will figure out ways of completing the work with the minimum levels of disruption to your life. Sometimes we can find that the problems are caused by relatively minor issues such as a tree root that has grown into the drainage system or an appliance has shifted and caused itself to become disconnected.
When more major work needs to be completed, there are plenty of options. We will work with you to come up with a plan that suits your schedule and requirements. Our team will carefully analyse the problem, discover where things went wrong and do everything in their power to ensure that it never happens again.
We understand that the idea of replacing your pipes may seem daunting. It is always tempting to put it off, to hope that the problem will never get worse or that it will only happen after you move out. It is never worth the risk. Like so many other problems, if you try and ignore this one then it is going to cause more problems, more stress and many more expenses further down the line, by being proactive now you are saving yourself time, stress and money.
If you have any concerns or questions then feel free to get in contact with us today. We have locations throughout the country so we will always be able to arrange for a local team to come out, examine the problem and come up with an obligation-free quote on your behalf. You can call us on 08006906777, fill out the form on our website or email us at; firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
