TIPS AND ADVICE FROM RJ PLUMBING SOLUTIONS

Listed below are a few various tips to save damage when waiting for an engineer and some self diagnostics test you can carry out.

 

Toilet Leaking

If you think that your toilet might be leaking slightly, check to see if the problem is not due to condensation before calling out a plumber. If you have condensation problems they can be solved by improved ventilation when bathing or showering.

A clever way of checking to see if your cistern is leaking is to put some food colouring in the cistern to see if it comes out.

Water hammer (loud noise from pipes)

This is caused by a pressure build up of water in the pipes. The simplest solution to try is to turn down your water pressure at the stop-cock and if this does not work you should give us a call.

In The Event of a Water Leak

If it is cold water turn off your mains water stopcock normally located under the kitchen sink or sometimes in an airing cupboard.

If the leak doesn’t stop then you can then turn of the red gate valves in the airing cupboard or they might be in the loft on the pipe coming out from the big tank.

If it is a dirty water and warm do the same as above and if it does not stop you will then have to find a drain off valve like the picture below which is usually located at low level on a radiator pipe or near the boiler, then connect a hosepipe to this and open the square nut on top anti-clockwise and drain the heating system out which will stop the leak until the plumber arrives.

If You Have Water on the Electrics

Turn off the fuse on the fuse box and get this checked by an electrician.

Water Rising Up From Toilets, Sinks, Baths and Showers

If you live in flats ask the owners in the flats above not to use any water until you have a drainage plumber come and clear the blockage.

If you live in a house do not use any water until you get the blockage cleared.

Radiator is cold

Try bleeding the air vent of air until water comes out normally located at the top left/right side of the radiator (you will need a key for this).
