What is the Most Common Job for a Plumber?

by | 25/ 05/ 23

Plumbers are your local superheroes, especially when it’s the middle of winter, and you don’t have any hot water. But it’s not just winter when these local heroes are around; you can contact them any time of the year for a wide range of household plumbing tasks, repairs and maintenance.  Here are common job for a plumber:

Installing Pipes and Fixtures

Whether it is bathroom installations or burst pipe repair in the winter, installing and fixing pipework is one of the most common jobs for a plumber. Pipes are integral to the water and central heating systems in a home and need to be professionally installed and maintained throughout the year. 

Unfortunately, most people don’t realise there is an issue with the pipes until it is too late; they see a leak and call a plumber in Burton on Trent. Installing sanitaryware is another common task for plumbers, especially in new build homes or properties undergoing some bathroom renovations. 

Repairing and Maintaining Pipes

Pipe integrity in a property is a perennial issue for homeowners – especially in the winter months. Residual water in the pipes can freeze and expand, causing the pipes to crack and leak. Naturally, this is the last thing you want when you need hot water on a winter morning. 

It’s common for a Burton plumber to be called to properties in the local area in the autumn and early winter to check the condition of the pipes. Having your pipes professionally checked before the cold season is an excellent way to avoid inconvenience and expenses during winter.   

Unclogging Drains

Drains perform an important function in a property’s plumbing system; they remove waste from the toilets and the sink and channel it to a sewer and processing facility. Debris in the system can sometimes block the drains leading to unwelcome flooding and sewage overflow outside. This is also a common job for a plumber.

If your toilet takes longer to flush, you have bad smells coming from your drains, or water is draining slowly from the bath or kitchen sink, you might have blocked drains. Contact our friendly team at Lonsdale Plumbing and Heating who cover the Burton on Trent area to have your drains inspected and cleared, preventing a range of issues.   

Installing Hot Water Cylinders

Hot water cylinders are used for heating and storing hot water for the household; they are a common type of water heating system in homes. Hot water cylinders use a tank that is heated to an even temperature, ensuring that your household always has hot water to use when it’s needed.
