Leaks

Leaks in your property can come from several different appliances and fittings and lady luck has it that the leak always arises at the worst possible time.

We can provide an expert leak fix service if you are experiencing any of: a leaking tap; leaking boiler; leaking radiator valve; a leak from the toilet cistern tank; leak under your bathroom or kitchen sink; leak under your shower; or leak under your bath.

 

Our advice, in the event of a leak emergency is to act as quickly as you can to minimalise the damage that the water from the leak will do to your property. If you have a leak (or a leak that you can't see where it's coming from), you should:

 

  • Catch the water leaking from the pipe in a bucket (or something else appropriate)
  • If possible, locate the main stopcock and turn it off.
  • If the leak is coming from a cieling, make a small hole with a screwdriver and then catch the water as above.
  • The next thing we recommend is to call one of DS Serve's professional plumbers if you haven't already done so.
 
 
To locate and repair your internal leak with minimal damage can be very difficult for an unskilled person.
 
Ensure you react fast, as water leaking or gushing from a leak has been known to cause serious damage to home's structures and electrical wiring.
 

DS Serve's reliable plumbers have the experience and training to use several different environmentally friendly techniques when it comes to making leaks safe and fixing leaks. The team are accustomed to fixing leaks inside your home or outside your property. Our engineers are always polite, courteous and will always tidy up after themselves having repaired your leaking water emergency.

 

Leaks under sinks

A leaking sink trap (whether metal or uPVC) is a major problem and should be fixed immediately to avoid issues like mold, mildew and rotting wood.  Obviously a cabinet with rotting wood will need replacing long before its original lifespan, which could easily be avoided by repairing the leak sooner rather than later.  The leak in a sink trap could be as a result of cracked plastic or corroded/rusted metal.  Call us on 0800 211 8424 if you have a leaking sink.


Leaks under baths

Bath leaks are normally noticed on cielings below where your bath is located and can be as a result of poorly sealed baths, non-snug fitted shower splash doors or leaks directly from the overflow pipes, u-bends or traps under your bath.  Fixing a bath leak normally involves detecting the area of leakages by removing the bath panel.  Call us on 0800 211 8424 if you have a leaking bath.

 

Leaks under Showers

Shower leaks will normally be emmanating from one of two places: shower's waste pipes; or shower's supply pipes.  If water is leaking from your shower, but it is not coming from the shower's supply pipes  or the shower's waste pipes, then it is likely to be from the shower tray being poorly sealed or not flushly fitted.  A pooly sealed shower tray can allow for movement with the weight of someone using the shower which is something that needs fixing immediately if you want to avoid wider damage and larger repair costs.  Call us on 0800 211 8424 if you have a leaking shower.

 

Leaking Taps

Leaking taps at best are annoying and a pain in the neck and at worst a waste of water and damaging to your property around the sink area.  A leaking or dripping tap is normally caused by a washer or valve problem on most standard taps.  Ceramic disc taps are slightly non-standard and when a leak is coming from this type of tap, a scratched ceramic disc could be the cause.  We can repair or replace dripping internal or outside taps like for like or with taps chosen (or supplied) by yoursleves to improve the sink area.  Call ouor plumbers on 0800 211 8424 if you need a repair on a leaking tap at your home or office.

 

Leaking Toilets

You may have noticed there is constantly water around your toilet base or that the flooring seems to be rising up.  This could be an issue with a seal.  Whatever and wherever you notice a leak from your toilet, it is best to deal with this immediately - the longer you wait, the more damage is being done especially where you can't see.

You could have a very separate problem in that your toilet flush is constantly leaking into the bowl and the noise annoying you.  Whether your toilet is leaking from the waste or supply pipes or the flusher is constantly leaking, DS Serve's plumbers can be contacted on 0800 211 8424 to fix your leaking toilet.

 

Leaking Boilers

Leaking boilers are fairly common problems, however the only person that should be dealing with the repair of your leaking boiler should be a Gas Safe registered engineer.  Although other plumbers can look at this, it would make sense to employ one of DS Serve's Gas Safe engineers for diagnosis and repair as a normal plumber will not be legally to cover out any repair and will only be able to give a visual diagnosis.

Your boiler could be leaking from the temperature and pressure relief valve as a result of too much water pressure or poor regulation of the temperature; it could be leaking as a result of cracked internal pipes; something related to your boiler pump or a number of other issues.  If you have a leaking boiler, leaving it not only exposes you to the normal risks of a leak, but also if it is leaking internally you are risking damaging your boiler electrics (e.g. your PCB board) which can be one of the most costly repairs.  Call-out our Gas Safe engineers via 0800 211 8424 if you have a leaking boiler.

 

Leaking Radiator Valves

As with leaking boilers, the best person to deal with leaking TRVs or radiator valves would be one of DS Serve Gas Safe Registered plumbers.
