Bristol Plumber Now has several roving Emergency Plumbers in Bristol. Leaking pipes are the most common reason for our plumbers to be called out. Usually the problem is wear and tear of components, a catastrophe such as a nail through a pipe event and sometimes its actually the customers’ fault.
Our plumber came across just such an occurrence last thursday when we were called to a flooded out basement flat. The owner of the flat had tried to install a washing machine cold water feed. Unfortunately they were not fully trained in using plastic barrier pipes, they had joined a standard copper 15mm pipe to a 2m length of plastic barrier pipe but had failed to tighten the collar on the plastic to copper joint. Result 3-days later a flooded out basement.
Happily our plumber was a local plumber and got to the problem quickly. He also did a spot of boiler servicing while he was there.
