Plumbing Rotherham - Plumbing When Building a House
If you are a homeowner looking to renovate, or a property developer, then plumbing systems should be something that are given serious thought as part of any preliminary designs. A house will not be functional or fit to live in without an adequate plumbing system. Here are some key considerations to make in the design of plumbing in your home:
Drainage – you must consider how waste water from baths, sinks and toilets will be disposed to a main sewer. It is better to plan your build so that multiple waste outlets can easily transfer into a drain without running long distances. For example, kitchen sinks are often positioned on external walls so that the waste pipe can be cored through the wall to the main drains. There should also be a sufficient fall on drain pipes to facilitate the flow of water and waste. Avoid elbows in drain pipes as these can easily cause blockages. A building control officer will need to inspect drains to make sure they comply with the building regulations during the build.
Incoming Water Supply – Locate where the public water mains run and use this to plan your build. Think about how and where the water supply will enter the building. The stop tap for the end user should be in a convenient place so they can readily access it in the future.
Incoming Gas Supply – think about where the gas mains run and how you will connect off these mains to your gas meter. Also consider where the gas meter is to be located – internal meters should be accessible and there should be a gas stop valve close to the point of gas entering the property. Gas is used to power ovens, hobs, boilers and fires, so this is a really important point.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS PLUMBING AND HEATING?
Plumbing and Heating is the professional trade which deals with water and gas installations within buildings. Examples of plumbing and heating installations within a property include boilers, radiators, baths, sinks, toilets, and external taps. A plumber is a trades person who is responsible for carrying out plumbing and heating installations. This includes the installation of pipework that supplies water and waste pipes which carry dirty water away from the home into public drains. Without proper plumbing and heating a building will not serve a useful function, so it is important to make sure all your plumbing and heating work is carried out by an experienced professional. Contact Plumbing Rotherham today for details on our services.
WHAT PLUMBING IS NEEDED FOR A DISHWASHER?
To connect a dishwasher to the plumbing system, you will first need to ensure that the service valve on the incoming water supply pipe is in the off position. Next you will need to connect the flexible water hose supplied with the dishwasher to the incoming supply pipe. After this is done, turn the incoming valve back on to check for leaks. Once the water supply connection is done, you must connect the flexible waste hose to the kitchen sink waste. You can easily identify this pipe as it is likely to be grey and corrugated. Attach this to the kitchen spigot waste and make sure to use a pipe clip to tighten on properly. If you are unsure what to do, then it is best to have the installation done by an expert like Plumbing Rotherham.
WHY PLUMBING PIPES MAKE NOISES?
Plumbing waste pipes are usually made of plastic which expands and contracts due to changes in temperature of the water passing through them. When pipes expand, they may come into contact with other fittings causing a ‘tapping noise’. Water hammer is another common noise which may indicate an issue with your plumbing installation such as a blocked air chamber, loose pipe fittings, or pressure surges caused by faulty valves. Without seeing the installation, it is difficult to say for certain why your plumbing pipes may be making noises. If you are worried that you may have a leak or that your system is damaged, then it best to contact Plumbing Rotherham to take a look to give you peace of mind.
WHY PLUMBERS ARE IMPORTANT?
Plumbers are considered essential tradesmen for installing, repairing and maintaining plumbing systems in the home and in commercial buildings. Plumbers that have undertaken gas safety accreditation appear on the gas safe register, meaning they are competent to carry out any works relating to gas supply pipes and gas appliances. Under UK legislation, only a gas safe plumber can legally work on gas appliances and gas supply lines. Furthermore, gas safe plumbers are able to provide mandatory gas safety checks for landlords. Competent plumbers usually undertake many years of theoretical and practical training before being able to work competently on their own. The majority of homeowners will never have the experience and knowledge that a professional plumber has. Plumbers are able to diagnose and fix plumbing faults in the home and will have the necessary tools to carry out a whole manner of plumbing jobs. Plumbing and heating engineers also play an important role in the design stages of new build properties. They can design the plumbing and heating system for both commercial and residential properties, showing the best position of pipes and appliances. Plumbers are also important tradespeople for carrying out emergency repair works on boilers. Boilers are essential for providing heating and hot water, therefore plumbers play a vital role in helping to keep the nation’s public warm and comfortable in their homes. For further details on our services contact Plumbing Rotherham today.
HOW DO I AVOID FROZEN PIPES?
During the winter months, when the temperature can drop below zero, frozen pipes can be an issue for many property owners. Pipes that are exposed, such as those under sinks or on the exterior of buildings are the ones that are more prone to freezing. To identify a fozen pipe, turn on the taps, if there is no water or only a slight trick there is a high probability that your pipe leading the the facet in frozen. At Plumbers Rotherham we recommend insulating your pipes, particularly those that are exposed to avoid them freezing during the cold months. If you are unable to insulate the pipes them leave the tap on a slow drip, especially during the night, to keep the water flowing.

IS IT NORMAL FOR MY RADIATORS TO MAKE NOISE?
In general, radiators tend to be rather silent. However, Plumbers Rotherham, understand that there are some instances of pops, clicks, gurgling and taps which can draw your attention to them. In most circumstances, these are completely harmless occurrences. One cause of noise in radiators experienced by our plumbers in Rotherham is air bubbles or trapped air. The movement of the water in the radiator pipes leaves air behind. The air getting trapped in the pipes is what lead to noise. Bleeding the radiators on a regular basis should help to combat this. Another cause of noise in radiators is the pipes warping or expanding and contracting. This is due to the amount of heat they are exposed to. Although, the expansion is slight it is still enough to make an audible sound. One solution to this, is to cushion your pipes to quieten the sound. This can be done with expanding foam or moving furniture that the pipes knock against. A more serious cause of radiator noise is boiler kettling. Plumbers in Rotherham, advise our clients that this is rare and only occurs in areas where there is hard water. As limescale accumulates in the boiler, this can block the radiator pipes which causes a banging noise. In this instance a gas engineer will need to be called to clean your boiler. For advice and guidance on your properties plumbing and gas contact Plumbers Rotherham today.
WHAT CAN CAUSE PRESSURE LOSS IN A BOILER?
Here at Plumbers Rotherham, this is a question we get asked a lot from our clients. There are a number of possible reasons for inadequate pressure in a boiler on a constant basis. In some cases, the problem is easy to identify and can be resolved by yourself. As always Plumber Rotherham, advise our customers if they are unsure to contact their local expert. One of the common causes of pressure loss in a boiler is leaks, either in the boiler or the central heating system. Unless the gauge remains at zero even when topped up, it is likely a leak is the origin of the issue, even if you cannot see it. In this instance take a look around your property for indications of a leak such a stains or damp areas on the carpet, ceiling, around pipes, radiators and the boiler. Even if you cannot identify the leak this does not mean there is not one, as there could be leaky pipes beneath the floorboards. Another cause of a loss of boiler pressure is bleeding radiators. Particularly, if you have recently had work done on your central heating system. When a radiator is bled, this allows air that has accumulated in the system to escape – potentially causing pressure in your boiler to drop. If your radiators have not recently been bled and there are no indications of a leak, then you may have a faulty boiler. In which case you should get in touch with your local gas safe engineer. For problems with your boiler of plumbing contact Plumbers Rotherham today.
WHAT CAUSES A LEAKING TAP?
Plumbers Rotherham know how a leaking tap can be an annoying problem. Some drips are only small and infrequent, whilst others are more persistent. A leaking tap can have several causes, so finding the culprit is sometimes not straightforward. One of the most common causes of tap leaks, experienced by Plumbing Rotherham, is the washer. This is the rubber or leather ring that presses against the water pipe to stop the water flow. Over a period they can become corroded or damaged and will need to be replaced. From our experience, here at Plumbers in Rotherham, a popular cause of leaky tap handles is the O ring. They create a watertight seal in the handle. If these become corroded, you will find a leak in the handle of the taps. Excessive water pressure is another cause of leaky taps. Water that is of excessively high pressure can be prevented from being transported, consequently it gets trapped in the pipes and backs up. This can cause leaky taps as it tries to escape from the pipes. A tap cartridge controls the flow and temperature of water. Accidents or wear and tear can cause it not to perform correctly, as such it may need to be replaced. If you are unsure of the cause of your leaky tap, Plumbers Rotherham always recommend to get in touch your local professional plumber. Contact Plumbers in Rotherham today to find our further details on our plumbing solutions.
WHAT IS A BLOCKED DRAIN?
Blocked drains are a common problem that our plumbers in Rotherham deal with. Drains that are blocked on the outside of a property are most likely to be caused by a build-up of dead leaves. Sometimes even tree roots can find there way into the drainage pipes and cause a barrier to the transportation of water.
Often, Plumbers Rotherham visit customers who are having issues with blocked indoor drains. This can be caused by objects being flushed down the drains. Sanitary products, baby wipes paper towels and hair are common culprits for blocking indoor drains. Blockages to kitchen drains can be caused by food particles, grease and fat and other objects finding their way into the kitchen drains. This could be through the plughole, dishwasher or washing machine pipes.
So, what are the signs of drain blockages? Blockages can take sometime to build up and become an issue. An obvious sign of a blocked drain is if your bath, toilet, shower or sinks are draining water away slower than usual. In some occurrences they may not drain at all. If a blockage is a sole issue on a sink, toilet, shower etc, then this could be localised. However, if all your water outlets are draining slowly this could be a problem with the main drainage. One tell tale sign that your main drain is blocked is if your water based fixtures caused the water levels to rise in your external drains. Other signs that indicate blocked drains are foul smells and funny noises coming from your drains, plug holes, toilets etc.
There are things you can do to try and unblock the drains yourself. For instance, if you are facing problems with blocked drain on a sink, you can check with your hands to see if you can remove the object causing the blockage. Be sure to wear gloves. If the blockage is further in to the drainage pipes, this can be tricker to resolve. In these instances a wire coat hanger bent into a hook shape can be used to try and remove the blockage. The use of a plunger and cleaning fluid are also popular tool to unblock drains. If you are not confident in being able to tackle the blocked drain yourself or you need some professional advice then why not contact Plumbers Rotherham today? Our independent, friendly plumbers are more than happy to help, they also provide free quotations.
WHICH PLUMBING PIPE IS BEST?
When it comes to selecting the best pipes to use for your plumbing installations, there are various materials on the market to choose from. Below, are a few common types of plumbing pipe and fittings to consider for your project:
Copper - traditionally, copper has been used as a time-tested material for plumbing pipes. They last a long time, are durable, and most professional plumbers will be familiar with their use. Modern day plastic ‘push fit’ couplers are available to make the installation of copper pipes easier. Traditional methods include soldering the pipes together, which should only be carried out by an experienced plumber.
PVC – PVC is an excellent choice for plumbing and can be used to supply mains water to hot and cold taps, water to radiators and waste from toilets, sinks and baths. PVC pipes are available in a variety of shapes, sizes, thicknesses and with a variety of couplings, making them a highly flexible option.
Stainless steel - steel is another plumbing pipe material, although it can be an expensive option compared to the others. Stainless steel can be used in shower or wet room areas to give an attractive finish, or where enhanced corrosion protection is necessary. Flexible stainless-steel pipe is useful to connect potable water distribution pipes to taps. These can allow for easier maintenance and may also contain service valves.
PEX piping – this is a flexible plastic pipe that is great for internal applications. It is easy to install and low maintenance, although initial costs can be high.
Brass – brass is one of the most durable plumbing materials and should contain up to 85% copper. Threaded plumbing fittings are often made of brass.
Galvanized Pipe – whilst this was a popular pipe material in years gone by, it is now not considered for potable water distribution as there is a risk of the rust within the pipe. It can however still be used to transport waste water, although the expense may not be worth it compared to PVC.
WHAT IS THE POINT OF A WET ROOM?
Plumbers Rotherham have observed that the demand for wet rooms have become increasingly popular over the last 10 years. But what exactly is a wet room?
A wet room is a totally waterproof or watertight bathroom. The level of the shower base is the same as the rest of the floor. The water drains away through a drainage area within the wet room. As the room is totally sealed with a watertight membrane there is limited risk of any damage caused by water spray.
A fully functioning and completely tiled wet room, removes the need for a shower enclosure or tray. Although, some of our clients at Plumbers in Rotherham do still choose to fit a shower screen to partition off the shower area.
As the entire wet room is at a single level, they are an ideal solution for individuals with mobility problems, for example if wheelchair access is required. Plumbers Rotherham have installed wet rooms on both ground and upper floors. Our team especially recommend them if space is at a premium. If you are contemplating installing a wet room and would like further details or your free quote please contact Plumbers Rotherham today.
WHAT CAUSES LEAKING PIPES?
If you own a property it is essential to understand the potential damage a water leak can cause. Our plumbers in Rotherham have visited many a home where water leaks have lead to damage and unwanted smells. Those property owners who have little or no experience may find it daunting when an internal water leak occurs.
A reason water leaks can be troublesome is due to the fact most of the pipework in your home is hidden behind floorboards and walls. Plumbers Rotherham have highlighted below the most common causes of water leaks to help you understand when it is time call a plumber and prevent significant damage to your home.
Broken Seals – A common cause of water leaks is broken seals. Water connections contain seals. As the seals age they can tear and sometimes wear out causing water to leak out.
Blocked Pipes – Clogged pipes can lead to overflowing and at worst burst pipes. The blockage can cause pressure build up behind it. You can protect against clogs by fitting traps over plug holes to gather hair and other debris.
Wear and Tear – As your buildings pipe work ages, rust and other aspects of corrosion can cause wear and tear. When this occurs water can start to leak. If there is an imbalance in the pH of the water or mineral content this can accelerate the corrosion in any water pipes. If you own an older building it may be worthwhile considering an upgrade to your plumbing system.
Defective Pipe Joints – Our plumbers in Rotherham, advise clients that one of the most vulnerable areas along pipes is the joints. Over a period of time, significant changes in temperature and high water pressure can cause the joints to fail. This leads to water leaks.
High Water Pressure – Excess water pressure can accelerate wear and tear of your pipes, due to the force placed on the inside of the pipes. This can lead to your pipes leaking and in some cases bursting. If you feel that you water pressure may be too high, contact your local plumber.
