Leaking pipes services in Brighton

Water leaks are one of the most common plumbing malfunctions. Some properties suffer from leaking pipes for weeks or even months without realising there is a problem, until an emergency arises. The consequences of a leaking pipe can range from increased utility bills to health issues, as leaks can contribute to the appearance of damp and mould.

Although water leaks can be notoriously difficult to locate, our team of expert plumbing contractors makes use of the latest technologies, which coupled with their ample experience allow them to identify and repair any leaks and cracks, no matter how minor they seem.

Frozen and burst pipes

Frozen pipes are a common household problem during cold spells. This issue can affect all types of pipe work, from traditional copper pipes to insulated lagged pipes. While some homeowners attempt to deal with frozen pipes themselves, this kind of plumbing service requires the skills of a trained plumbing professional, as otherwise a frozen pipe could end up bursting or developing leaks.

Plumbing on Tap works with plumbing contractors with proven expertise in dealing with frozen pipes. Our methods are safe and effective, and we are always happy to provide professional advice on how to minimise the risks associated with frozen or burst pipes.

Tank and overflow services

The avearge water tank has a life span of 10-15 years. In soft water areas, corrosion can wreak havoc in tanks, causing leaks and breakdowns. In other cases, tanks develop rust or pinhole leaks due to adverse weather conditions and make a replacement service necessary.

We also operate a unit of plumbing contractors that specialises in repairing leaks, splitting, and overheating in tanks that work with electric immersion heaters.

Homeowners are often discouraged by contractors from purchasing or supplying their own materials. This is to prevent the use of substandard products in the projects. Most plumbing and heating services will include in their contracts that the customer is responsible for any damage caused by the materials they have supplied. To avoid such scenarios, it is better to allow the experts to supply the materials. However, clients can discuss with the contractors if they have any preferences in terms of where the materials are obtained from. This way, the client can receive expert advice on their choice of suppliers and the quality of their products. We source our supplies from credible names in the business, and while we aim for a flawless delivery each time, we do take full responsibility for any damage caused in the course of the project.

Over time, tanks split or rust, while wear and tear can also lead to a dramatic leak and potentially flood your property, causing major damage. It’s therefore important to get a fast response, stop the leak and diagnose the exact problem. Our plumbers carry stock to help with speedy repairs. Full quotes for new tanks will be given if a replacement is needed.

Our qualified plumbers are committed to installing and repairing tanks and overflows to the highest of standards, with the least amount of disruption to you and your family.

A water storage tank should meet the following requirements before installation:

  • A tank of 250 litres is considered adequate for most homes, so don’t buy a tank bigger than this, as it’s important for the water to be replenished with fresh water.
  • Your water tank must be made from approved materials like Glass Reinforced Plastic (GRP) or Polyethylene, as these are approved for water storage. Older tanks are made of galvanised iron, which rusts over time, discolours water and leaves a bad taste. Be sure to look for the WRAS approved product logo, as this will ensure the tank is safe for storing drinking water.
  • The tank you purchase must be for potable drinking water, as the design of the tank is different from those used to store non-potable water.

There are several reasons why a ball valve will need to be replaced. They include:

  • Internal Leaking
  • Leaking at the seams
  • When it is no longer stopping water
  • When it is not closing completely
  • When it is broken

Our team of expert plumbers can replace ball valves, restore the lining of your tank, and repair any connecting pipe work to ensure water in your property is flowing properly.

A noisy tank is an annoying and common occurrence – especially if the tank is in your living space. However, not every sound a tank makes is problematic, but it might sometimes be a signal that points to a bigger issue. For instance, an accumulation of mineral deposits and sediment will cause your tank to make a noise; a clogged drain valve is also a sign your tank needs to be looked at; a leaky tank and cold or lukewarm water from the tank are also indications your tank needs to be repaired. Rusty water and rusty valves are also pointers that suggest a repair is needed.

Our effective water tank and pipe work cleaning service helps reduce limestone build-up and other potentially harmful bacteria in your water system. Cleaning your tank and overflow also helps improve the effectiveness of your water system.
