Plumbing Tips

  • Blocked Tap – “Make sure you turn the water off at source before attempting to clear a blocked tap by taking it apart.”

  • Blocked Sinks – “If you are using a plunger, trying to unblock a blocked sink, cover up the overflow holes with a damp cloth,this helps build up the pressure.”

  • Toilets – “If your toilet ball float is leaking and filling with water, take off the float (by unscrewing it), empty it, then screw it back on and wrap it in a plastic bag.”

  • Starting Threads on Pipes – “When threading pipes it is sometimes difficult to get started. Make it easier by cutting slots in the end and then cutting off the end later.”

  • Starting Threads on Pipes – “When threading pipes it is sometimes difficult to get started. Make it easier by cutting slots in the end and then cutting off the end later.”

  • Leaky Toilets “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. Condensation problems can be solved by improved ventilation when bathing or showering.”

  • Leaky Cistern – “A clever way of checking to see if your cistern is leaking is to put in some food coloring.”

  • PTFE Tape “Use PTFE tape when fixing a leak or making joints. The tape should be wrapped around the thread of the pipe, clockwise when viewed from the end of the pipe is the correct way to put it on.”

  • Good Practice “If you are installing tanks and fitting pipes, be sure to cover the ends of the pipes with tape to stop pieces of plastic and swarf from dropping down them, the bits and pieces will block taps later on and cause all kinds of problems.”

  • Showers “If the water pressure is very poor in your shower it may be due to lime-scale build up. If you live in a hard water area you should clean your shower heads every three months or so. If the scale is too bad it may be an idea to get either a new hose, or a new shower head.”

  • Water Hammer “If your water pipes sometimes make a loud “hammering noise” after the toilet has been flushed or sink, etc. ask the hardware store for something for “water hammer.”

  • Cause of “Hammering Water Pipes”  “This is caused by a pressure build up of water in the pipes. The simplest solution is to turn down your water pressure at the stop- cock.”

  • Repairs to low pressure water pipes “The repairs can be carried out while the water is held back by stuffing bread up the pipe. It should remain in place long enough for a repair to be made.”

  • Frozen Pipes – “I find that the best way to melt the ice in frozen pipes is to put hot water bottles over them. I hear that using a hair-dryer is good as well.”

  • Split Pipes “If your water pipe has split, a temporary fix you can do whilst waiting for a qualified plumber is to wrap torn strips of fabric very tightly around the break. Keep a large saucepan or bucket underneath the join to catch any drops.”

  • Removing Taps “When removing nice tap fittings (such as gold ones) for maintenance reasons, use a thick cloth to protect it from the jaws of the wrench, otherwise you’ll get a load of scratches on them.”

  • More Good Tap Advice – “When taking a tap apart, always keep the plug in to prevent anything useful falling down the plug hole.”
