Tips & Hints

Blocked Tap

Make sure you turn the water off at source before attempting to clear a blocked tap by taking it apart. Blocked Sinks. If you are using a plunger, trying to unblock a blocked sink, cover up the overflow holes with a damp cloth. This helps build up the pressure.



If your toilet ball float is leaking and filling with water here is a useful trick I learnt to tide you over until you can get a new one. Take off the float (by unscrewing it), empty it, then screw it back on and wrap it in a plastic bag.

Starting Threads on Pipes

When threading pipes it is sometimes difficult to get started. You can make it easier by cutting slots in the end and then cutting off the end later.


If the water pressure is very poor in your shower it may be due to lime-scale build up. If you live in a hard water area you should clean your shower heads every three months or so. If the scale is too bad it may be an idea to get either a new hose, or a new shower head .
