TIPS AND ADVICE

• Find out where your stop valve is located on the incoming water supply main and label it. Check monthly that it is working.

 

• Whilst you are looking find where other service valves are located?  Label them and check from time to time that they are working correctly.

• Find the location of any drain valves on the system too. These can be used in an emergency to empty your water and central heating systems.

• Ensure that the storage system and exposed pipes are properly insulated, particularly in the roof space or attic.

• Inspect your cold water storage cistern (tank) regularly and, if it is metal, make sure it is not corroding. Call in DBD Plumbing and Heating if there is any sign of a problem.

• Dripping taps or continuously running overflow pipes are a sure sign that your plumbing system requires maintenance. To avoid them becoming major problems call in the services of DBD Plumbing and Heating.

• Have central heating boilers and other heating appliances serviced yearly.

• If you have a condensing boiler, make sure that the condensate pipework is protected against freezing.

• Anyone who is working with gas must be gas safe registered.  Always ask for their Gas Safe I.D
