If you are updating or replacing your bathroom it is recommended that you use a fully qualified plumber.

If your guttering is damaged it may result in water waste and rain not travelling to your drains correctly. This can lead to flooding and leaks in your home.

A plumber will be able to tackle jobs such as these quickly and efficiently.
When installing a shower there are several options available that should be discussed with a plumber. Do you want a mixer shower, an electric shower or a power shower? A qualified plumber will be able to advise you on the benefits of each and how economical they will be to you.

There are many household repairs that require a plumber - central heating system breakdowns, boilers, radiators, water pipes, leaks and floods. Always make sure that the plumber you employ is fully qualified, particularly if your gas supply is involved in a repair. This used to mean ensuring that the plumber was Corgi registered but from April 2009 this changed to Gas Safe Registered. Ask to see their Gas Safe Registration ID card and if they do not have one, do not employ them.
