What Do Plumbers Do?
It seems like common sense, but a lot of people don’t know when the right time to call a plumber is and for what reason. We receive a lot of calls that start with someone asking whether or not they should be calling us or not. At this point, we will be able to tell you if you are in the right place, although it would save a lot of time to do some research first.
With that said, we thought we would outline just a few of the things the Heat-Tec plumbing team do, helping you with your decision regarding whether to call a plumber or not.
If you have problems with your hot water heating up, you should call our heating engineers. A lot of people get confused and call electricians, probably thinking about the electrical lines running through the systems, but this is the wrong thing to do and a waste of any electricians time.
Heat-Tec has years of experience when it comes to hot water, heating systems and boilers, and we can assist you with boiler installations, maintenance and repair of yours. Whether your hot water isn’t as you’d expect or it isn’t staying hot for as long as you’d hope, we can assist you moving forward.
Plumbers are commonly known for fixing leaks and burst pipes, as well as overflows and over problems with pipes. Pipes are probably the thing that defines a plumber most, so if you are having problems with your pipes at home or work, your first thought should be to call a plumber, especially when leaks, burst pipes and flooding occur.
When any kind of considerable flooding occurs (a plumbing emergency), it’s best to call a plumber.
From our base here in Croydon, the Heat-Tec Plumbers can diagnose and fix a range of flooding issues. We have the equipment needed to remove all the excess water from your property and the essential tools needed to carry out all work professionally.
A plumber will either repair your pipes and pumps for you or completely replace them if the damage is too severe.
As well as fixing flooding, burst pipes and hot water heating, plumbers will also have the ability to repair your toilets and kitchen sinks when blockages occur. These are common problems that can be made worse by people’s persistence in trying to shove more in to fix the problem, although this is an extremely bad idea.
We’d advise not to try unblocking toilets or kitchen sinks, especially if there is serious water buildup. If the blockage is made worse, it might be more expensive or time-consuming to fix the problem.
As well as the usual pipe and plumbing problems, Heat-Tec can deal with a range of gas and sewage-related problems. As Gas Safe Registered engineers, you can call us when you smell a gas leak or when you need a new gas line putting in.

Loose pipes under the kitchen sink, are one of the most common plumbing problems that people tend to suffer from, and it’s something that can easily be rectified.

One of my radiators isn't heating up, what could it be?
If you have a radiator that isn’t heating up, then the first thing to check is to make sure the valves are open on the radiator; the valves are usually found at each end of the radiator, meaning you have easy access to check there open. If the valves are already open, then the next thing to do, is to bleed the radiator. By bleeding the radiator you release any air bubbles; bleeding can be carried out using a radiator key or screwdriver (depending on the radiator). After both of these, if your radiator still doesn’t heat up, then call Heat-Tec and we’ll send out a plumber to check your radiator and carry out an inspection of your central heating system.
I keep getting low water pressure, what's causing it?
Should you be suffering low water pressure, then this could be down to a number of reasons and is most commonly caused by the central heating system or boiler.

When it comes to low water pressure, get in touch with Heat-Tec and our team will be more than happy to come and check your boiler and heating system, to find the problem and repair it.
My pipes keep freezing, can I prevent it?
Frozen pipes are one of the most common problems both homeowners and plumbers have to deal with in the winter. However, did you know that it’s also a problem that can be easily avoided. If you regularly use your heating or hot water during the winter, you can prevent the freezing up of your pipes. By putting your heating on a timer throughout the night, you can heat up the pipes during the cold period at night, helping to avoid your pipes from freezing up.
What temperature should could water be distributed at?
All water coming through your cold water pipes, shouldn’t exceed 20 degrees celsius. It is your water companies responsibility to ensure the water that comes through your pipes is to the appropriate temperature.
My cistern is overflowing, what can I do?
Cisterns overflowing are more common that you might think, with many cisterns overflowing because of high water levels, broken ball valves or worn out washers.
