There are numerous plumbing mishaps that are waiting to happen in your house without any prior notice. Bursts and leaks are the most common and well known of all plumbing troubles. Leaks can occur at any time, and in any part of the pipe work system that supplies your property. In the very cold weather leaks and bursts are at their most regular, as the abnormally cold temperatures cause any un-insulated pipe work to freeze. They say prevention is better than a cure, so when the cold weather approaches contact a local plumber so he or she can protect any uncovered pipe work.
One of the most common areas for bursts is the loft or attic, where the temperature can drop to well below freezing. A burst in the loft can have damaging consequences for the rooms that are directly below the leaking pipe. The plaster work can become sopping and in a great deal of cases the actual ceiling will collapse. To prevent this happening you can protect the pipe work yourself, for the cost of the insulation and an hour of your time you will be able to avoid a lot of distress and spoil to your personal effects. GA plumbers in Liverpool use the pre formed poly pipe lagging, which is available from any good DIY shops or plumbers merchants. GA plumbers Liverpool also advise that you insulate your pipe work ahead of the cold climate kicks in, for the time and effort involved it could save you an absolute fortune.
Different plumbing problems that happen around the home are frustrating leaks and drips. Most individuals tend to neglect tiny problems like drips because they don’t seem that big of a issue at the time. It is also recommended to remedy any leakages as soon as you notice them. A small seep over time can turn into a large issue; I once visited a property, for a reported seep on the immersion heater. After I had repaired the seep I noticed that the floor boards and trusses below the tank where rotten. This was now a major problem for the customer as the weight of the tank was just supported by the rotted wood work and was in danger of falling through in to the room below. Keep in mind the weight of the immersion heater and the fact it would be full of near boiling water, if it came down through the ceiling in to the room below. Anybody directly beneath the tank would be in jeopardy of serious injury or scolding. And all this from a little drip that was left unattended for a duration of time, by the owner of the place. Luckily there was only financial damage, but again this could have been prevented.
