Types of service

Leak on heating pipe from screw

Leak on heating system

Leaks on your heating system can cause water damage and corrode the system by introducing air and new water. Most of the time these leaks can be because someone has drilled through a pipe, has a leak on a compression fitting, a joint hasn’t braised properly or due to corrosion. If you have a pressurised system you may see the pressure has dropped and the hot water has stopped working. On gravity systems it may be harder to tell you have a leak, and may only be able to tell when signs of water damage emerge.

Radiator moving or installation

Whether you need a radiator moved to a different location or want a new radiator installed. Want the pipes hidden in the walls, surface mounted or under the floor. Want chrome, copper or plastic pipes. If you want a standard or traditional column radiator, flat panel or modern vertical radiator, heated towel rail and more. Pompey Plumb’s experienced local Portsmouth plumber has fitted all type of radiator and will make sure your systems is dosed with corrosion inhibitor and fully tested.

Filter installation and servicing

Particulate and magnetic filters are now a requirement for every new boiler installation. They provide an essential job removing particulates, rust and microscopic metal dust from the system, which if left in there could damage components, block valves and cause your system to run inefficiently. Our Portsmouth based plumber can install and service your magnetic filter, keeping your system clean and running correctly.

Power Flushing

If installing a new boiler onto your old system, to validate the boiler’s warranty, the system will need flushing. Power flushing is where a machine passes water and cleaning chemicals through the pipework, radiators and boiler to remove black sludge and other debris from the system. These debris can also cause other issues, such as cold spots, faulty valves and inefficiency. Along side flushing the system, the heating tank in the roof will also be cleaned, if you have one that is. Call Pompey Plumb and we can have a Portsmouth based power flushing expert to you within days.

Noisy heating pipes

Heating pipes that click can be a real nuisance, preventing you from sleeping, etc. This is usually caused by one of two reasons, either a faulty valve vibrating, or pipes that have no expansion space. If your heating system begins clicking when the heating comes on, it is a good indication the pipes have no expansion space. Our Portsmouth plumber knows exactly how pipes should be run and the space they need to avoid noise from expansion. Call us today and you could be back too a good night’s sleep in no time.
