Emergency Plumbers in Pembrokeshire & Carmarthenshire

We attend many emergency plumbing issues, one recently was a faulty shower pump which had failed and was flooding a converted Mill near Haverfordwest. We attended as soon as we could stopped the leak and repaired the plumbing issue. Other common plumbing emergency plumbing issues we are called out to are burst pipes usually caused from frost damage, these are usually un-insulated pipes in a vulnerable cold position. Another common leak is caused from rodents chewing plastic pipe fittings. they seem to have an appetite for plastic plumbing fittings, We were called out to a leak which a mouse had caused th fitting to fail in a property in Carew. The leak caused the ceiling to come down. 

Old copper pipes can suffer from pin hole leaks, the pipe can appear in good condition but has corroded from the inside from pitting. A good system inhibitor can help prevent this, In this instance we would replace the section of faulty pipe work.

We respond quickly to all emergency plumbing problems, try M Price Plumbing and Heatings mobile first 07779288057, if we are out of service there is a chance we are in WIFI reception try sending a Whats App message if you have the App or an email to localplumber2001@gmail.com.

In all leak situations try your best to turn off your water to the property, If you cant find your stop tap inside the property there will be one out side in a small manhole usually. Also turn on your taps to reduce the water flow at the leak.

Power Flushing

Power flushing is a technique used to clear sludge from central heating system pipes, radiators, coils and heat exchangers. These are areas where scale and corrosion can collect, the symptoms are usually:

  • Cold spots on radiators, even after bleeding
  • Takes a long time for radiators to warm up
  • Noisy boiler
  • Radiators needing regular bleeding
  • Inefficient central heating system

Once a power flush is complete, you can expect the following benefits:

  • Pipes and radiators will get hotter quicker
  • More cost efficient system
  • Less stress on the boiler
  • Increased life of the boiler
  • Heat will be distributed more evenly throughout the home

We are Adey Magnaclean Installers and have a state of the art Magana Cleanse Power Flushing unit.

We recommend installing a Magnaclean filter to provide system protection.

All areas of West Wales (Carmarthenshire Pembrokeshire Ceredigion) covered and we can travel further if needed.

Should I leave the heating on low all day even when I'm out? or turn it up only when I need it?

According to leading energy experts at the Energy Saving Trust, as well as British Gas, the idea that it's cheaper to leave the heating on low all day is a myth. They're clear that you'll save energy, and therefore money, by only having the heating on when it's required. (Using a timer's best, because your thermostat is designed to turn your heating on and off to keep your home at the temperature you set it.) for thermostat upgrading and advice please get in touch.

The key thing to understand here is that it's all about the total amount of energy required to heat your home. It's a given that a certain amount of energy is constantly leaking out of your home (though exactly how much will depend on how good your insulation is). So the Energy Saving Trust says if you're keeping the heating on all day you're losing energy all day - and therefore it's better to heat your home only when you need it. However, it's not quite that clear-cut. Some specialists disagree – and argue you should keep the heating on constantly for an entirely different reason. They advocate keeping the heating on low all day, turning all radiator valves up to the max and the boiler down to the minimum, and say that the problem with turning the heating on and off is that every time it's turned off, condensation collects within the walls. This condensation can help conduct heat outside the home, they say – meaning you leak heat more quickly and so will use more energy as a result. If you have an old boiler the old non condensing type renewing you boiler to an A rated unit which uses all fuel as nearly all the heat produced is used to heat your home.

We recently installed a Worcester External condensing Oil Boiler to a property in Templeton, Pembrokshire to replace there twenty year old boiler which had broken down and was beyond repair. Our customer has since reported a reduction in oil consumption. If you require advise about boiler installation please contact us, we cover all of Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion.

Busy start to 2016

Its been a busy start for us in the plumbing world this year so far. Among programmed and contracted work we have had may breakdowns of Oil boilers in the Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire areas. A shower refurbishment has also been undertaken which involved re tiling an area of the bathroom. With the first cold snap of the year has also brought burst pipes which we have repaired in Whitland.
