They are just great professional from the beginning till the end. My kitchen and bathroom looked amazing and it was quite inexpensive than all other quotes I got. They completed the job well ahead of schedule. Highly recommended!
Had a great experience with Ali. My boiler broke and he came the very same day. I required a section changed and he ordered the parp for me and looked through it online to spare me some cash. He returned two days after to fix the new part. Would recommend.
The type of piping material used in your home is a very important factor when the lifespan of your plumbing system is concerned. The different types of piping materials have their own sets of advantages and disadvantages and are likely to pose different challenges to the home. When buying a new home, it is vital to have an appraisal or report of inspection that will have comprehensive details of the make of the plumbing pipes used in the home.
The table below represents some piping materials and their expected lifespan.
|Piping Materials||Expected Lifespan|
|Copper||50 years or more|
|Cast iron||75-100 years|
|Galvanised steel||20-50 years|
|PVC piping||Can last indefinitely|
You may be impressed by the lifespan of some of these piping materials, but it is always important to consider the other things like their fittings, joints and the mechanical components which are used to connect the plumbing to the fixtures and appliances of the home.
When these plumbing materials get old, they become faulty and replacing them is usually the best solution.

Failing plumbing usually shows some signs, and some of these signs include corrosion and leakage of pipes and obvious cracks on pipes. It may also start having some plumbing issues which may include:
In conditions when the water pressure becomes low, it can also be a sign that there is a blocked drain or leaking pipe somewhere. The presence of a rattling or gurgling sound from the pipes is usually an indication that air is trapped in a blocked pipe. When an enclosed area is damp, or mould grows on it, it is an indication of a leaking pipe.
When drains move slowly, they should be cleared with a plumber’s “snake” or a drain cleaner. A slow-moving drain is usually in indication of a blocked drain or pipeline.
If you notice any of these signs, call us right away to inspect your plumbing system.
There are some problems that can be easily fixed without the help of a plumber, especially if they have to do with blocked drains or exposed pipes though it is still advisable to get them to do it.
