Prevent plumbing problems with our handy video guides

 

We know what a nightmare it can be when your plumbing goes to pot. And while our engineers are always happy to help, we also know that you're better off if you can avoid a call-out in the first place.

That's why we recently teamed up with James from Plumber Parts to bring you a series of videos that can help you keep your plumbing systems in top condition.  

 

Here's a quick round-up of our in-depth videos to help you get started:

Boiler maintenance: A breakdown of common boiler problems

Your boiler needs love, too. We'll take you through the essentials of keeping your boiler running efficiently and smoothly: setting the right temperature, protecting your pipes and installing filters and inhibitors into your heating system.

How to prevent hard water from ruining your plumbing

Limescale doesn't just look dirty – it can also affect your water pressure and your appliances. Learn all about water softeners, magnetic filters, and the damage that hard water can do to your plumbing, and then follow our step-by-step guide to testing the hardness of your water supply.

Preventative plumbing: home maintenance before a holiday

If you're planning a holiday, you've probably got enough on your plate without worrying about your home.

We'll show you what to do with your heating and water systems to protect your home from freezing and leaks, and how to keep your energy bills low while you're away.

Preventing radiator problems

Don't let a few simple problems keep you from a warm winter. We'll show you the basics of radiator maintenance: how to add an inhibitor to your system, how to fix a thermostatic radiator valve, and how to fix the most common types of radiator leaks.

 

Just remember – while these videos are packed with good advice, you might not always feel comfortable getting stuck in by yourself. So if you're not sure, or you need an extra pair of eyes, one of our engineers is always on hand to help.
