More often than not slow draining sink or basin has a localised blockage, which can be found in the u-bend or trap. This is very easy for a Clipfix plumber to guide you via video, through the steps of fixing it yourself. You’ll be really pleased with yourself afterwards!
LOW BOILER PRESSURE
Over time, the boiler pressure in the central heating system will drop, and in some instances this will stop the boiler from firing up. Our Clipfix plumbers can easily show you how to repressurise your central heating system, and also explain how to bleed the radiators. All you need is a radiator vent key.
DRIPPING TAPS & PIPES
A slow leak is not only a waste of water but can cause a lot of damage over time. It’s really important to fix it as soon as you can. We can show you how to tighten fittings, joints, grub screws and packing glands. All you’ll need is some basic spanners to carry out this work.
Heating controls can be a minefield, and they all work slightly differently. With our knowledge of the majority of them, we can help you set them up properly, so your house is warm when you want it to be, and you don’t waste any energy, helping you do your bit for the environment.
