Do you need to fit a washing machine in an area that doesn’t have the necessary services? Most modern washing machines require only a cold feed, waste service and a standard plug socket to operate. However, some older washing machines require an additional hot water feed. Water is delivered to the washing machine through washing machine hoses connected to washing machine taps which can be isolated when disconnecting the appliance. The waste can terminate in two different places, one is its own washing machine up-stand trap, and the other is a washing machine spigot often built into the sink trap or it own fitting after the trap on the waste pipe.
Like plumbing for a washing machine, a dishwasher requires a cold feed, waste service and an electrical outlet in order to operate. Unlike a washing machine, a dishwasher often has it’s own inlet hose with an electrical or mechanical anti-flood valve incorporated, to stop any leaking when disconnected. This means extra room is usually needed to accommodate the valve. However, all of the fittings are the same and the inlet valve is still called a washing machine tap, even though a dishwasher can connect to it. The same with the dishwasher out-let, it uses a washing machine up-stand trap or washing machine spigot for the waste.
Do you need to use a hose in the garden or need plumbing for a garden irrigation system? We can fit an outside tap with all the necessary safety and isolation valves. Whether your outside tap is located in the safety of your back garden, or on the front of your property, we will install the right tap for you. You could have a standard outside tap for areas that only your household have access to, or a lock-shield tap for shared/public areas to stop others using your water. Do you need hot water for filling a paddling pool or filling a jacuzzi? Well we can also install a hot outside tap along side your cold. We only use the best materials with our outside tap installations, and though we do our best not to have exposed external pipework, if there is no choice, we will make sure the pipework is protected from cold weather and can be drained in the winter to prevent damage from pipe freezing.

You first have to ask if your water is heated by a gas boiler, an electric immersion heater or a combination of both with an indirect hot water cylinder. If your hot water is heated by immersion heater, it’s most likely a simple fix, which will only require the changing of the thermostat inside the heating element. These are inexpensive and often only take less than an hour to replace, providing you don’t have a leak in the immersion heater. However, if your gas boiler, such as a combination boiler, is heating your water, we will most likely hand you over to our trusted professional GasSafe engineer which you can find on our trusted trades we work with page. If you feel your lack of hot water is an emergency, then please contact us and we will try to get to you as soon as possible. For more information please visit our emergency plumbing page.
