Are you experiencing a faulty boiler system at your Basildon home? We provide domestic customers with a Gas Safe registered plumber to fix older boilers which are prone to age and wear. If you need emergency plumbing services, we repair any make or model of boiler or central heating system with 24-hour callouts. You can rely on our local plumbers to complete a regular boiler service to prevent breakdowns and fix problems, before they cause long-term damage.
1. Lack of Hot Water
Low thermostat or pressure level readings indicate there is a low amount of heat and hot water. This may be due to internal components that are broken, loose or corroded, which need to be fixed by a professional plumber and Gas Safe registered engineer. Our local plumbers may recommend that Basildon customers opt to replace old, deteriorated units with a new, energy-efficient model.
2. Holes and Leaks
If you need plumbing services for fixing leaking hot water and central heating systems, a 24-hour emergency plumber is available for Basildon homeowners. The source of the leak can occur both internally or externally. Internal problems can be due to a damaged pump seal or pressure valve because the pressure is too high. Whereas external leaks are often related to corroded pipes or loose-fitting connections.
3. Lime Scale and Kettling
A build-up of lime scale can turn into a sludge, which surrounds the heat exchanger and causes kettling. Basildon customers can easily distinguish this by the loud clanging sounds when the heat or hot water is turned on. This is due to the sludge restricting the free flowing of water, which is common in hard water areas. If left unattended, the accumulating limescale can shorten the lifespan of your boiler.
Our local plumbers help to prevent kettling by carrying out a regular boiler service on your behalf. Here we can determine the appropriate action to clean your boiler using power flushing techniques. An emergency plumber also unblocks boilers if the issue occurs before your scheduled annual boiler service.
4. Intermittent Power Outages
We carry out rapid response plumbing services for boilers which keep switching on and off. This can be affected by any of the above issues – worn internal components, holes, leaks or kettling. The local plumbers at Simply Plumbing are qualified to fix or upgrade your boiler with electric and gas models, which are supplied by top manufacturers like Valliant and Worcester Bosch.
