By |2021-06-14T14:15:57+01:0014th June 2021|Uncategorised|

Like everyone else, plumbers are also facing numerous problems due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Unlike other jobs, most of the work done by plumbers is not possible to do online. Plumbers have to be on-site in person to deal with the problem and carry out their operations. Here is how plumbers are being affected by the Covid-19 pandemic. 1. Cancellation and lack of Jobs: Many health organizations, including WHO, have advised us against going out of or inviting outsiders into our homes, except for emergencies. It has led many people to cancel any plumbing job they were planning before the lockdown. As such, there have not been many jobs available for the plumbers to do on a daily basis, unless they have to respond to an emergency or the work on the projects that are considered to be ‘essential.’ 2. Compromise on Personal Safety: Although many guidelines have been issued to protect professionals and customers, plumbing work is still something that could compromise their hygiene. Although some plumbers have chosen to stay at home, many plumbers do not have that choice. They will accept the job, even if it compromises their safety. The danger is not just from going out [...]

Effects of Lead Poisoning on Human Body

Lead poisoning can occur when the lead builds up within the body, usually over a long period of time. The excessive amount of lead in the body can cause serious health problems. Young children are vulnerable to lead poisoning, which can affect their physical and mental development. What is Lead Poisoning? Lead poisoning is caused by increased lead levels within the body that interfere with the body's normal processes and is particularly toxic to children. Why does Lead poisoning happen? Lead and calcium compete for the protein essential for the nervous system. The lead can change the calcium from that protein, so the calcium will not function properly. Particles from the lead-based paint are ingested through the air, or lead contamination may occur from contaminated drinking water.

What could be blocking your drains?

By |2018-06-25T13:55:21+01:0025th June 2018|Uncategorised|

Keeping the sewage clear is harder work than you would initially think. People are used to throwing things down the toilet without really thinking about what they are doing. Of course, there is the occasional accidental drop of a phone or glasses. But there are many more, non-accidental drops that can cause you enormous problems. The usual suspects are for example wet wipes, hair, grease and fat. Grease It is common to think that if you wash hot liquid cooking grease down the sink, followed by hot water, it should be fine. But the thing is, this grease is only liquid because it is warm. When it cools down, it becomes solid and sticks to the pipes. Maybe not immediately down your sink, but definitely further on. Also, even grease that is naturally liquid can be sticky. And will happily join in. Every little bit of additional grease will build up. And form a thicker and thicker layer. Anything else that is flushed down will get stuck in this layer. And in the end, could even block the entire pipe. Wipes You should never ever try put wipes down the [...]

If you look at the earth from out in space, you’ll see that most of our planet is covered in water. 97% Of this water is salt water. And only 3% of this water is freshwater. Most of that freshwater is frozen or unusable. Only 1% of the world's water is available to be used to turn into clean drinking water. You might be surprised to hear about the amount of effort that is needed to produce the water that we drink. In the production process of clean drinking water, 9 litres of water is used to make 1 litre of drinking water. In many well-developed countries this water is not only used for drinking, but also to fill the bath, have a shower or flush the toilets. How much water do we use? In our daily life on average, we use circa 100-130 litres of water each day.

Are Your Pipes Ready for Winter?

By |2018-04-13T13:32:01+01:0023rd November 2017|News, Plumbing|

It is often thought that because the winters in Britain are usually not extremely cold, our pipes will not be affected. Unfortunately, this perception is incorrect. Every year many people are caught out by the very unpleasant and unexpected surprise of a burst water pipe. The trouble begins already before the water freezes. Before water reaches its freezing point, it expands. There is no space within the pipes to deal with this expansion. As the taps are normally closed, the water cannot find its usual way out. And the pipes cannot expand in the same way the water does. The pressure gets too high and at this point, the pipes will lose their fight and have to give way. They do this by bursting. The water is still liquid as it has not yet turned into ice. So when the pipes burst the water gushes out. Then there are also occasions where a part of the pipes becomes frozen and an ice blockage develops. The water keeps flowing towards the ice blockages and this causes the pressure to increase to the point that the pipes cannot sustain this. And they burst and let the water finds its way out. So [...]
