Toilet maintenance and central heating

Blocked Toilet

Sometimes through daily usage, a toilet becomes blocked and will not flush properly. This occurs because the effluent in the u-trap of the toilet exceeds the water weight used in a typical flush. With the debris caught in the toilet’s u-trap, each time the toilet is flushed the bowl fills with water often times overflowing onto the bathroom floor. This blockage can be pushed through the u-trap allowing the toilet to cycle completely with the help of a Toilet Plunger.

Toilet Plunger

A Toilet Plunger forces water, which does not compress against the blockage. The water then pushes the blockage through the u-trap of the toilet allowing the water to flow freely. Most blockages can be passed using a Toilet Plunger. Toilet Auger If the blockage is unable to be passed with a Toilet Plunger then another option that can be used is an Auger or what is commonly called a Plumbers Snake.

An Auger sends a spring coil through the entire u-trap of the toilet down to about 3 feet, a length that should break up any blockages located inside the toilet.

Here are some problems you may be facing:

  • Rocking Toilet
  • Blocked Drains
  • Burst Pipe
  • Broken and Leaking Toilet

If you are dealing with issues similar to these, it would be preferable to contact an emergency plumber who has more experience and knows exactly what to do in situations like this.

Central Heating Installation

Central Heating Installation Process Central heating upgrade includes primarily a new boiler, radiators, controls, and pipework. Boiler installations can vary greatly between the different types and makes of boilers and the unique requirement in each property. As an example of the supply and installation of a typical central heating system with a combi boiler:

  • Drain and remove old boiler (if exists)
  • Install new combi boiler (including flue)
  • Connect flow and return pipe-work to the boiler
  • Connect water pipes between the boiler and taps
  • Install heating radiators on the walls
  • Connect pipework to radiators
  • Install controls (timers, thermostat)
  • Power-flush the system and put inhibitor
  • Notify Gas Safe board and issue all required certificates
  • Clean all rubbish and leave the property tidy
