A hot shower is essential for your daily routine. However, sometimes your shower breaks down entirely or may start to malfunction slowly. If it is not fixed on time, there could be several problems that include mould growth, backflows and electric shocks, among others. No1PHD professional plumbers are always at hand to inspect and fix any shower issues across Southampton. We have technical knowledge of various shower types, including electric, thermostatic, mixer and digital ones and can fix any of them within a short notice.
Here are some of the common showers problems our customers have reported in the past.
A shower that alternates hot and cold water can be annoying. Sometimes this is caused by failures in the main piping and hot water tank valves. Other times, it is a problem with the flow valve, which is located in the shower. Other customers have complained of a sudden burst of scalding hot water. We can fix your hot water problems fast whether it means repairing the existing valves or installing wider pipes. Besides, our plumbing and heating technicians can also fix showers that have gone cold. Most of the time, the thermostat or the electric circuit in the control units is usually the culprit.
Leakages may come from the pipes under the sink or water supply to the shower itself. Most of the leakages are caused by brute force hit on the pipes or improper installation. There may also be leakages from the faucets or the showerhead. Hire our Southampton plumbers to fix leakages as soon as possible and prevent high water bills.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

Every shower comes with a pressure relief device. This device is put to control the pressure at which the water hits your body and prevents the hot water tank from exploding. If there is too much pressure, the device may blow and shut down the shower. This may be due to a blockage in the showerhead, the hose, or delivery pipe. Our Southampton shower experts can unblock and replace the pressure relief device so that you get your shower running as soon as possible.
There are times when the shower produces a loud whirring sound. This is usually caused by pulses in water delivery and piping system that is not well-secured to the wall. Depending on the individual case, a No1PHD Southampton plumbing technician may change the blanking plugs in the inlet fittings of the unit.
Each bathroom has a drainage system that connects to the sewer line using the gulley trap on the other side of the wall. The piping system may be blocked by gunk due to soap scum, entangled hair, or any other solid waste. This may cause backflow. The foul smell is usually caused by bacteria that feed on the debris in the pipe, mould growth in the pipe and a blocked P-trap vent. Our technicians clean unblock and disinfect the pipes to get rid of the smell.

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.
