Plumbing Tips My Plumber Plymouth

Locate your home’s water shut-off valve. 

Before moving into a new home, note the location of the main shut-off valve and drain (in some cases, the shut-off valve will be located outside the house

Don’t puncture pipes during DIY

Are you planning to drill holes or pound nails into your walls, floors, or ceiling? First, determine if there are any supply or drainage pipes behind your work area since you don’t want to accidentally puncture them.

Learn whats flushable

since flushing, anything except toilet paper leads to nasty clogs, leading some help from the plumber

Invest in a good plunger

Invest in a high-quality plunger to help clear toilets, sinks, and drains. If you’re planning to clean sink traps, use a plunger to push most of the water out before removing the trap. pick up at local plumbing supplies

Have a wet n dry vacuum

When you’re trying to dislodge a clog caused by a small, hard object (like a child’s toy, toothbrush, or comb), rely on a wet-dry vacuum. It’s more effective to suck the object out. A plunger will only push it deeper into the drain, making it more difficult to remove.

Don’t ignore Leaks

That steady drip, drip, drip of a fixture symbolizes money going down the drain. A leaky faucet typically wastes up to eight gallons of water per day, while a running toilet can waste 200 gallons per day

Don’t overtighten fittings

A common DIY plumbing mistake is over-tightening fittings and connections, which leads to broken bolts and stripped screws. Remember this adage: “hand-tight is just right.”

Try a bit of Plumbers Tape

Pick up a bit of Plumber tape, Plumber’s tape (also called Teflon tape) is used to seal pipe threads to prevent leaks around joints and fittings. You should typically wrap the plumber’s tape three times around the pipe threads before sealing. Also, note that white tape is designed for common household plumbing projects

Always check for Leaks
After every plumbing project, check for leaks by running water through the system, then opening and closing all valves and drains.

Know a good Local Plumber

Keep the number handy of a Local Plumber
The tips above are guides for those small simple jobs that might help. But some jobs are best left to the professional plumber as they will have the tools, experience to fittings to do the job properly.

Cutting copper pipe

The important thing to remember before cutting pipes is to plan. Have you considered ensuring that earth bonding continuity will not be broken? Is the water disconnected? Where are the pipes to be positioned? Do I have all the equipment and materials to finish the job? Is there anywhere I can get extra material from should the need arise?

blank

Measuring the pipe

Copper is a relatively soft material which can easily be cut with a hacksaw.

When measuring the position of a cut, make sure you allow enough for the pipe to sit fully into the joint. If you look inside fittings, you will generally see a slight ring where the inserted pipe will butt up to. If you’re not sure, try pushing a piece of pipe into a fitting until it is fully home, then mark the pipe with a pencil at the end of the fitting. When you withdraw the pipe you can measure the extra length from the mark to the end of the pipe.

Marking and cutting the pipe square

Mark the pipe where it needs to be cut. It is important to cut it square. Since hacksaws tend to wander, the best answer is to use a paper guide. Take a piece of paper with a straight edge and wrap it round the pipe at the mark. By wrapping it around on itself, it should automatically form a straight guide which is square to the pipe. Hold it in place and make your cut alongside it.

Cutting copper with a pipe cutter

Better still, use a pipe cutter. This consists of a cutting wheel in an adjustable grip with rollers mounted opposite. The cutter can be unwound to fit over the pipe then screwed back up so that the wheel sits against the mark. The tool can then be revolved around the pipe, tightening it after each turn. As the tool is tightened and revolved, the wheel cuts through the pipe at right angles.

Once the cut has been made, clean off any burrs (pieces sticking out) with a small file or emery paper.

Q. How can I avoid low water pressure affecting a shower installation?

Common causes of inadequate water pressure include low mains water pressure and showers piped onto gravity systems or connected to combination boilers. Where lack of pressure is an issue, an orange mechanical indicator light may illuminate to highlight this.

blank

Step one: When the shower is switched on, the indicator should change and the orange light should go off. If this doesn’t happen, there may be a fault with the mains water supply.

Step two: Remove the shower head and block the water flow from the hose with a thumb or finger on cold power setting. If this gradually gets the indicator to lift then it’s the low pressure that’s the issue, and the mains supply is most likely operating correctly.

Step three: If the mechanical indicator is lifting then there is still a bit pressure there. However, it may not be enough to provide maximum flow to the shower. This could be due to having poor water pressure, or signpost that an inlying valve is only partially open. It may also suggest that you need to make sure the stop tap at the point of water coming into the property is fully open too, so there are no blockages or restrictions at all.

If this appears to be the issue, having ensured all valves are fully open the indicator should lift easily and overcome the safety interlocks. Heat should then be provided by the shower’s internal element and the shower can be used accordingly.

Step four: If the mechanical indicator doesn’t rise, then this would suggest the shower has been fitted on a gravity system or it could be joined to a combined heat system. If the showerhead is producing nothing but hot water, even on the cold setting, this clearly indicates this is the case. The easiest way to check is to feel the incoming connection pipe. If that’s hot, then you’re supplying the shower with hot water, which needs further investigation.

Plumbing Plymouth – How to

Our expert plumbers have kindly agreed to share their wisdom on such topics as water tanks, dealing with a leak, copper piping, and pipe sizing, dishwashers, toilet and washing machine installations, soil pipes, shower advice, dripping taps, and much more.

Question. my boiler keeps losing pressure and needs filling from the loop every day, even though there are no sign of leaks under the floors or from the boiler overflow outlet


Answer. If you have no signs of a leak and you’re losing pressure, your pressure relief valve is probably letting by, this is a safety valve which allows water to escape outside safely if the central heating pressure becomes too high, it will normally be a 15mm copper pipe going through the wall outside it will just be kicked back on itself. if you know where this is or can trace the pipe to outside if the wall is wet or has an orange-like stain or you can see it dripping that is most probably you’re the problem, all so when you refill the system you should vent the radiators just in case there any air in the system.

Blocked Kitchen Bathroom Sink

Blocked drains I’m sure I’m not the only one to experience the inconvenience of clogged drains. Clogged kitchen sinks are among the most common drainage issues to plague homeowners, largely because food debris and soap residue are nightmares for smooth draining.
Thankfully, my plumber, Plymouth is here to help, one call to us 01752905007 and we will be there to unblock, unclog your nightmare drain issue.

Blocked Clogged Sink Plymouth

UNBLOCK BATHROOM SINK

Do you see the warning signs of slow draining sinks or the pooling of water around its area? Are there some unpleasant odors that you encounter as you walk into the bathroom? all these conditions can be leading to a single and potentially catastrophic plumbing problem – a clogged drain. So what can you do to unclog a bathroom sink? First things first, you may need to call a plumber, but before you do that, here are some tips you can try.

Boiling Water

Perhaps the simplest thing to do is to just boil water. Why will this work? The normal culprit of a clogged bathroom sink is hair, grime, and soap scum. Boiling water can work through all of these to restore the normal flow of your drains. The trick is to pour the boiling water in stages a couple of seconds apart. This will allow it to work its way through all the blockage.

If that doesn’t work then time to My Plumber Plymouth 01752905007

Toilet flush not working

Another happy customer Friday for My Plumber Plymouth, Customer had a toilet flush not working. 

Not being able to flush the toilet in the morning will not just ruin your day but probably your whole week. The sooner you deal with the issue, the better. If you don’t believe you can handle this job on your own, you can always hire a professional. Licensed plumbers like My Plumber Plymouth.

The low water level in the tank. This is one of the main reasons for a non-functional flush. Make sure that the water level is a minimum of 3 centimeters beneath the overflow tube of the tank. Check how low the water level is and if the valve is off, please turn it on. Flush the toilet once the water level is optimum.

Lift the chain, if there is one. Check it for excessive stretch. If there is, the flapper will not rise and won’t gather sufficient water in the bowl. Thus, there will not be a full flush. To fix this, remove the chain and re-hook it to the hole that is located near the flush lever.

Wared or bent flapper. Inspect the rubber flapper – the part intended to control the flush mechanism. If no water pours into the bowl after pushing the handle, it’s because the flapper is not rightly seated. Simply re-seat the flapper and the tank should fill up. If the flapper is in bad condition, replace it. Turn off the tank while changing to a new one and flush again to check whether it’s working.

Cleaning to unclog. Simple cleaning is also important if the flushing mechanism has stopped. You can use drain cleaner or muriatic acid, let it settle for a few minutes, use a brush, and pour a gallon of hot water. If the water goes down, it means the flush is working again.
