Affordable Plumbing Top Tips

Help reduce the risk of a plumbing emergency by following our Affordable Plumbing top tips:

1) Know where your water supply stop valve is and check it is working periodically.

2) Insulate your water storage system and any exposed pipes, especially in the loft.

3) Take care not to allow water pipes to freeze in cold weather. Your loft hatch can be left open so that heat from the house can help stop pipes in the loft from freezing.

4) Check your cold water storage tank for signs of corrosion.

5) Check the condition of the hosepipes to your washing machine and dishwasher.

6) Keep your plumbing system, boiler and heating fully maintained and serviced.

7) Keep your plumbers number to hand in case of an emergency.
