An unusual rise in water bills can indicate an internal fault, and is definitely worth investigating. Numerous plumbing problems, such as dripping taps and leaking pipes, quickly add to water costs.
However, there are other reasons bills may increase. For example, most households use more water during the summer, especially if running sprinklers or hosepipes.
Before calling our local plumbers for plumbing and boiler services, it is worth making sure there is not an explainable reason for rising bills.
Blocked drains are a common problem our plumbing services address. Whether a partial or complete clog, blockages make it harder for water to drain from sinks, baths and showers.
If you notice slow drainage, often accompanied by a gurgling noise and/or a foul smell, it is likely your drains need unblocking.
Occasionally, blockages require an emergency plumber to resolve serious problems quickly. Simply Plumbing Ltd provides 24-hour services in Chelmsford and the surrounding areas for when our customers need us most.
Water should come out of taps in a steady flow. If this slows down or taps start trickling, your water pressure is too low. If the issue only occurs when running hot water, there is probably a fault with your water heater, rather than the pipework.
Our experienced local plumbers offer professional boiler services in Chelmsford, ensuring your plumbing and heating systems function the way they should.
Banging, humming, gurgling, rattling or whistling sounds coming from your pipes are an easy way to tell there is a problem.

This may include a boiler service as well as plumbing work.
