Any time you have an issue with your plumbing, it’s easy to give us a call. To help you we have put together some quick fixes and a way to diagnose simple problems.
What Causes My Drain To Clog?
The most common cause of a clogged drain is that something gets in it that shouldn’t be there. This happens especially in the kitchen, but the bathroom drains also can be clogged from hair and soap residue. It’s important to always be conscious of what is going into your drains, and you should also regularly treat them with a quality drain cleaner like Bio-Clean.
Why Does My Faucet Drip?
Most of the time when a faucet is dripping it’s easy to fix it. It might need its internal mechanisms rebuilt or in some cases replaced. This can be fixed relatively inexpensively. If you turn your faucets off gently as opposed to forcefully it will extend the life of your washers.
How Can I Keep My Pipes From Leaking?
You should regularly inspect your pipes to make sure they are free of lime or rust because this can ultimately cause the pipes to start leaking. If you find that this is already happening you can call Alban Plumbers to come to your home. When you take the time to do an inspection you could help prevent a small problem from becoming more significant and more expensive. If your pipes do start leaking, they can damage your belongings and your floors, and this can lead to substantially higher cost for repairs then it would if you detected it earlier.
What Should I Do If My Heater Is Leaking?
As soon as you find this is happening you should call Alban Plumbers. The most common reason for this happening is that the bottom of the tank has rusted out. Once this has happened there really isn’t a right way to repair it. You will likely need to get a new water heater.
Do I Really Need To Fix A Running Toilet?
Beyond the annoyance of having a running toilet is the fact that it wastes a tremendous amount of water and money. Remarkably, it can waste up to £100 a year or more on your water bill. This problem happens because there is something within the toilet mechanism that is broken. It’s possible sometimes to wiggle the flush a bit to solve the problem. But if that doesn’t solve it, then it’s likely you will need to replace the flushing mechanism. When you contact Alban Plumbers, we can help diagnose the problem.
If My Drain Is Clogged Or I Have A Leaky Faucet Is It Really Necessary To Get A Plumber?
Yes, you should call a plumber in those situations. A plumber has the experience to make a proper diagnosis. Their skills and craftsmanship and their experience installing and repairing pipes along with other fixtures give them the knowledge to properly diagnose clogged drain problems and to help you fix those issues along with other plumbing problems that may exist in your home.

Can Alban Plumbers Install Plumbing Fixtures Or A New Sink In My Home?
If you’re handy, it’s possible you’re capable of handling this type of job by yourself. It’s even possible for you to go to one of the big Home Centers where they will show you how to do it.
