How can our emergency plumber in East London help you? 

Plumbing emergencies in a home can appear due to numerous reasons and they can be influenced by the quality of the plumbing system, the number of years since the plumbing system has continuously been working, flaws that can appear on different types of fittings, which are the parts that connect two pipes, these being just few of the problems that can arise when we refer to the internal part of the plumbing system

Our emergency plumber in East London can, however, help you resolve immediately plumbing issues that can appear in your shower or bathtub, toilet, sink, radiators, water heaters and septic tanks. A leak or a burst pipe are also included in the list of the emergency situations that can be resolved by our local plumbers.  

In the case in which you deal with any of the above or with other plumbing issues, the first thing you should do is to call our team of plumbers in London. Our team will require as many details as possible with regards to your situation, with the purpose of evaluating it correctly and send the emergency plumber in East London who is qualified for the respective plumbing situation, together with the necessary devices and tools used for your emergency problem

As a general rule, you should know that our emergency plumber in London can be contacted at any hour and, depending on your location, our specialist will be able to arrive at your premises in 30 minutes – one hour. Our emergency department is available 7 days a week, throughout the year. 

When requesting the services of our emergency plumber in East London you must know that our specialist can cover a wide range of issues, but more commonly, our plumber was generally called for emergency cases that were related to the following: problems of the central heating system, burst water pipes, frozen water pipes, repairs of the boiler and the replacement of the boiler, water leaks or bathroom plumbing

If you are in need of the services of an emergency plumber in London you should know that all our plumbers who are on call for emergency services are registered with the Gas Safe Register – this is an important information in the case in which you require emergency gas services.

Our plumber can provide a rapid response to your situation and you must also know that our plumbing company stocks a large part of the products that are necessary for various plumbing situations, including for emergency cases, which means that we will not lose time with purchasing various necessary plumbing parts.  

Regardless of the emergency you experience at your home, please do not address to an unqualified plumber or try to fix it yourself, as this can lead to many complex issues, that will take a longer period of time to be fixed, and a larger budget as well. Once the plumbing emergency happened, please call our emergency plumber in East London for professional assistance. 

If your central heating system has stopped working, this means that it can be a problem with the manner in which the components of the system were installed and if you are unable to use it, you can call us at any hour of the day. Our emergency plumber in London can verify if all the systems of the central heating are in place, if they were installed according to the instructions, if there appeared various errors, in order to resolve the issue and avoid any future break downs.  

Modern central heating systems can now be controlled through thermostats, which are designed to provide a suitable temperature in the home environment. Smart thermostats have the possibility of self-adjustment to the local environment, based on your heating preferences. At times, such devices can act erratically and this means that the sub-systems they control may not function properly, leading to various heating issues or to a complete malfunction.  

In the case in which the thermostat no longer works properly, or if it has suddenly stopped working, our emergency plumber in East London can fix this problem, as our specialist is trained in repairing such devices that use a more complex technology.

Given the fact that this particular situation refers to an emergency case and that the plumber in London is on standby on a 24 hour basis, such costs are generally higher compared to the standard plumbing situations. This is also due to the fact that a plumbing situation can arise at night, outside the typical working hours, during the weekend or during a holiday.

What are the basic plumbing services for a kitchen in London in 2021?

Given the fact that the kitchen is one of the spaces in which one uses the plumbing system on a daily basis, it is very common to experience different issues in this area. Some of the common plumbing repairs our emergency plumber in East London can offer to our clients refer to the following: the installation of a gas boiler, repairing it or maintaining it, clearing blocked drains, repairing water leaks, repairing water taps and installing kitchen sinks or replacing old sinks. 

Our plumber in London is also qualified to change the entire plumbing system of your kitchen, if necessary. This can happen when the previous system is very old and is no longer reliable or in the situation of a kitchen remodeling (for instance, when you want to modify the current layout of the pipes in order to change the location of the sink in the kitchen space).  

Our clients can also be helped by our team when installing dishwashers or washing machines, these being only some of the kitchen appliances our team is qualified to handle (our local plumbers can easily help you in installing gas cookers and ovens). Besides these, you should know that our plumber can participate in full kitchen renovations.

You can also rely on our specialist for emergency plumbing services for your bathroom or for other rooms where you have a plumbing system that is not functioning properly. 

How can the emergency plumber in East London help in bathroom plumbing issues?

Emergency plumbing issues can appear in all parts of a home actually, but the bathroom and the kitchen are more likely to be the places where such issues will appear, given that most of the plumbing of a home or of an apartment can be found in these rooms. Not to mention all the devices and appliances that are connected to the plumbing system, such as sinks, toilets or bathtubs. 

These objects are used on a daily basis and the likelihood of having a plumbing issue is very common. This is why our emergency plumber in East London has faced numerous emergency cases that were related to various appliances or pipes which can be found in the bathroom.

A common problem that is met is the toilet, which can have a number of problems. Common issues are: the water from the bowl is constantly dripping or constantly running – this is not an emergency per se, but it can be reflected in your water bill, as the overall water consumption will increase. 

However, a plumbing matter that is considered an emergency is when the water from the bowl is not flushing. This can be caused by numerous flaws of the bowl, such as a faulty flush valve, but it can also be due to a plumbing issue that stops the water from reaching the toilet’s bowl. 

If you are involved in a bathroom renovation project, then you may also need the assistance of our emergency plumber in East London. The project itself does not represent an emergency, of course, but during this process, various issues can appear, especially in old houses, where the plumbing system can be affected by numerous flaws that will be detected while removing parts of the walls or other components of the bathroom. 

Here, local plumbers can discover that the pipes are rusty and that they need to be replaced, or that a pipe is dripping inside the wall and this will need immediate assistance. In a home renovation project, emergencies can appear at any given stage of the project, but especially in the beginning, where the old parts of the bathroom are removed and replaced. 

During this procedure, it is ideal to replumb a house in its entirety, not only the bathroom. Of course, this depends on the client’s budget, but also on the desire to change the entire plumbing structure of a house.

This is not only a costly procedure, it can also take a long period of time, but the procedure should be done especially when the pipes are very old. So, a bathroom renovation project can be the starting point for a general renovation.

Can the emergency plumber in East London provide commercial plumbing services?

Yes, of course. Our team of plumbers is also qualified to assist companies in a wide range of plumbing issues. Our plumbing residential services are similar with the ones for commercial clients, but there can appear various differences, as the plumbing system of a commercial building can vary greatly compared to the one of a house or an apartment building. 

This is given by the fact that commercial buildings are designed to fit the needs of a large number of persons working in the same space – the ventilation system for a floor is created differently and the plumbing system as well. For instance, in the bathroom of a commercial building one can find several toilers and several sinks. 

Nowadays, the water taps are activated by motion sensors in these types of commercial bathrooms (in malls, airports, business buildings, etc.). Although they are very well received by the general public, they can also have technical issues, and our emergency plumber in East London can solve them. 

When sending our emergency plumber in East London to take care of a plumbing issue that appeared in a commercial building, we will typically send more than one person, as such problems are usually more complicated and they need the services of more plumbers

Our most complicated cases in the area of commercial plumbing services are for industrial clients – here, we refer to factories and other units where various goods or services are produced. In this particular case, our emergency plumber in East London will need to handle very complex plumbing issues.  

Please mind that our plumber is qualified to handle boiler technical issues, for both residential and commercial clients. Typically, there are important differences between the boilers that one can find in a home and the ones of a company, but of course, the difference can be diffused in the case where a commercial client is a small company, located in an apartment or a house, where one will generally find a regular, residential boiler. 

Please mind that, according to the UK laws, a commercial boiler unit is defined as any unit which has a power rating above 70kW. If you own a commercial boiler, it is also recommended to have annual checks, to see if the unit is maintained in proper conditions. This will also reduce the likelihood of having an emergency problem, but if this happens, our emergency plumber in East London is ready to assist you. For more details, you can call our plumber in London or send an inquiry by e-mail.   

Do plumbers in London need a qualification? 

Currently, there isn’t a clear legal framework with regards to the obligation of having a license as a plumber in London or elsewhere in the country, but this depends on the type of plumbing the plumber knows how to provide. For instance, those who work with gas related devices must be registered with the Gas Safe Register.  

Still, it must be noted that local plumbers can obtain an accreditation for their services from the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering. Here, a person in need of emergency plumbing from an emergency plumber in East London can verify if the person has the necessary qualifications for the job. 

However, it must be noted that companies will work with accredited plumbers and you can rest assured that if you require the services of our emergency plumber in East London, our colleague will have the required certification in his field of expertise. If you need other plumbing services, do not hesitate to contact our local plumbers
