Don't wait when the water's cold, or leaking, or just not flowing


UK plumbing has many unique challenges, including two-faucet sinks, complicated shower installations with multiple buttons and dials, and toilet tanks mounted to the wall near the ceiling.  


UK plumbers have GCSEs or equivalent at grades 9 to 4 (A* to C) in maths, English and science. They also hold an industry-recognised qualification like a level 2 or 3 Diploma in Domestic Plumbing and Heating, and gas-related units at level 3 to work with domestic gas heating systems.  


Plumbing problems invariably occur on nights or weekends, or during the day when hundreds of other customers are waiting for the plumber too. If you need to know how to fix a problem yourself, the UK Plumbing Experts on JustAnswer.com are available promptly and at any time, day or night.

No plumbing problem is too difficult for the Experts


UK plumbing Experts have solved thousands of problems, such as:  


  • I have an Ideal Combi Logic boiler showing the L3 fault, and I’m trying to determine what the issue may be and if I can fix it myself.  
  • I have a Megaflow hot water system, and the red expansion vessel started losing pressure two days ago. It looks like there is a leak somewhere in the system.    
  • I've got a Glowworm Ultracom 24cxi which has an F28 fault. I’ve tried resetting it a few times but that doesn’t help.  
  • I want to replace the normal toilet in my flat with a Saniflo-type toilet. But I have just discovered this is not permitted. Any other ideas?    
  • What is causing tiny rust marks on my clothes when I wash them in a brand-new washing machine?  

When you consult with a UK Plumbing Expert, be prepared to answer these questions first:  


  • How long has the problem existed?  
  • Are you doing the work yourself?  
  • What have you already tried?  

With this information in hand, the Expert can resolve your problem promptly and efficiently.
