Plumbing systems are an integral part of every household in Winchester, as they are essential for the functioning of our showers, toilets, and sinks. These utilities all rely on clean water being pumped through our plumbing, a commodity which is regulated by a stopcock. This small component is a vital part of any plumbing setup, so it is crucial that it is kept in good working order. If you’ve encountered an issue with your stopcock, it is imperative that you have it fixed by local plumbing professionals No1 PHD immediately.
Here at No1 PHD, we’ve been working on various aspects of plumbing systems for many years. Our staff are all fully trained and can carry out everything from plumbing installations to repairs. If you’re experiencing problems with your stopcock or need a new one installed, be sure to contact our team.
Stopcocks are, in many ways, the most important component of any plumbing system. They act as a master key of sorts, and they control the flow of water into your home. They can be fitted into any area of your plumbing system, but they are usually installed into an easily accessible location such as:
The importance of your stopcock cannot be overstated as it allows you to turn off the water if your plumbing has sustained damage. This is especially useful if there is a leak in your system (maybe due to a burst plumbing pipe), as the stopcock will stop the flow of water so that the affected pipe can be repaired. It’s easy to check if your stopcock is working. Turn on a tap anywhere in your home, turn the stopcock clockwise, and if the water cuts off, it means that your equipment is working properly.
If you test your stopcock and find that it’s not working, it’s likely that you’re having other issues with your plumbing system such as irregular water pressure. It is essential that you have such problems rectified as soon as possible to avoid any further faults from developing with your system. It’s likely that there is a build-up of dirt in your system that will need to be thoroughly cleaned using special equipment.
If you have encountered an issue with your stopcock, the first step is to contact our plumbing team at No1 PHD in Winchester. We can arrange a convenient date and time to visit your residential home or commercial premises and have your stopcock repaired or replaced in no time. Our staff will consult with you beforehand to establish the extent of the problem and ensure they have the correct equipment available.

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

If you are having a new stopcock fitted, our team will need to know where your old one is located. Upon finding it, we will then need to shut off your plumbing while fitting the new one. We realise that this process can be very disruptive, so we’ll be sure to work quickly to finish the work as soon as possible. Rest assured, our staff will fully test your system before leaving to make sure that the stopcock is fitted correctly and that water is flowing without issue.
If your stopcock requires a repair, it is vital that it is turned off immediately. Once our team arrives, they will then be able to find the source of the problem and get to work on the necessary repairs. It could be that the issue is not with the stopcock itself, but to do with another aspect of your plumbing system. If the case is that your stopcock cannot be repaired, our team will be able to provide a replacement and install it quickly.

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.
