Our advice will also come to your aid when you should install and replace small equipment without a plumber.

Know the exact volume of water loss from its piping using a meter.
When the water bill goes up abnormally beyond your average consumption, this can only be a leak. To locate a leak, first turn off the meter for at least 12 to 24 hours.

Now that the counter has been closed, all you have to do is write down what it says as numbers and redo it when you turn it back on. Reconciling the two numbers will allow you to calculate the difference and find the difference to determine the exact amount of water lost:

• To stop a leak, turn off the water from your main faucet under the meter. When 12 to 24 hours have passed, you can restart it.

• With a pen and a paper pad, read what is on the meter. The indication in m3 is your water consumption. Impossible to miss the other units: hectoliters, daL and liters to the right of the comma. After 12 to 24 hours, note again what it displays and calculate the gap to know your exact rate of water leakage.

• After leaving the water meter idle for 12 to 24 hours, reopen it then note what it displays. Also open the tap so that the water can continue to flow without forgetting to keep an eye on your water meter. If your meter keeps spinning, there is a leak somewhere. once the pipe leak has been identified, you should stop the meter again and record the final indication. That's it, you noted what the water meter displayed; it's time to confront the numbers and calculate the gap to find the exact value of water volume loss. Divide this number by twelve or twenty-four, depending on the duration of the break, to find out your actual water leakage rate.

• Once all the information elements together: presence of water leakage, flow and exact volume of water loss. You can then go around all your installations and faucets problem to close the leak.

adhesive and hardener sealant.

How to repair your leaking fitting

• A leak due to a faulty copper pipe:
Fix the problem by repairing the leak with putty
Any copper pipe clogging operation begins with the cleaning of copper pipe. First, prepare the area to be sealed by wiping it with a clean cloth and then gently sand the pipe on a surface slightly wider than the leak. This will allow you to hang the product easily.

To perfect its polishing, it will be necessary to use a metallic brush, a fine wool or a piece of fine emery cloth. Segment the putty first then, mold it. Repeat until you get a mixture of uniform and oily product. Now you are going to apply the putty on the leaking pipe to fill it. The leak zone has been well cleaned. Now you will need to smooth the initially mixed mastic and make sure it adheres perfectly to it. Let it dry as long as necessary.

Plumbing in Singapore: What You Need to Know

Plumbing is a branch of mechanical engineering that deals with the conveying of fluids from one place to another. Pipes or tubes are connected together with connectors and valves to allow fluids, mainly water to flow. Plumbing is applied in domestic and industrial water supplies, drainage systems, waste removal, and fuel gas piping, among other applications.

The importance of plumbing in the society 

The importance of plumbing in the society cannot be overemphasized. On top of many other things, plumbers are able to install and repair toilets, urinals, bathtubs, showers, fountains, kitchen sinks and any other appliance that is involved in the transfer of water from one place to another. Plumbing is thus very important to the health and sanitation of a society. Improper plumbing work may lead to the outbreak of waterborne diseases such as cholera.

Plumbing systems today at a glance

In the wake of environmental conservation, plumbing systems have evolved from the traditional bulky and rigid systems to today’s light, flexible and easily replaceable piping systems. Precisely, galvanized steel and copper piping dominated plumbing systems traditionally. However, plastic pipes are now dominant. Commonly used plastic pipe types include Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes, Polypropylene Random Copolymer (PP-R) and Polybutylene (PBT) pipes. More eco-friendly plumbing systems are designed every day, and we can only wait to see what the future holds for the plumbing industry.

Tools of the trade

Plumbers work with tubes and pipes. These pipes and tubes are used together with a wide variety of plumbing components such as elbows or bends, tees, valves, unions and sealants to make a path for fluids to flow. For this path to be made, plumbers use a wide variety of tools in their jobs. Some of the common tools include pipe wrench, water softeners and filters, heat exchangers and water meters. More specialized tools include PP-R welding machines, flaring pliers, pipe cutters, pipe bending machines, and soldering torches. The list is long. Sometimes, plumbers also require video cameras to identify leaks in piping systems. A plumber must have all the plumbing tools if he or she is to do a good job.

Must you always hire a professional plumber? 

You must not always hire a plumber for a plumbing task. You can do some plumbing tasks yourself. For example, you can tighten a loose or leaking tap if you have a pipe wrench. However, other tasks may be complicated and may require the services of a professional plumber. Make sure that you can clearly identify the tasks that you can do on your own and those that require a professional plumber. Some plumbing problems may seem simple when they actually need a sophisticated plumbing solution.

Factors to consider when hiring a plumber

We have just noted that you should consider the nature of the plumbing task before you decide whether to do it yourself or hire a professional plumber. What other factors should you consider when hiring a plumber?

• Compliance with the law
Compliance with the law should come first. You want to be on the right side of the law at all times. Precisely, if you are looking for a plumber in Singapore, he or she should be conversant with the Singapore plumbing codes and standards. The plumbing service provider must be recognized by the Public Utilities Board and registered either as a water service plumber or a sanitary plumber.

• The range of services provided
You want a plumber who will be able to provide a wide range of services. Some of the common plumbing services include installation, repair and replacement of sanitary fixtures, pipe installation and leakage repair, re-piping, installation, repair and replacement of toilet accessories and installation of water heaters. Your plumber of choice should be able to offer these and more plumbing services.

• Experience
Ability to offer a wide range of services is not enough. How long has the plumber been in this business? What does his or her previous customers say about the services rendered?

• Availability around the clock
Some plumbing tasks are urgent in nature. For instance, if your toilet is blocked, you need a plumber immediately, even if it is at night. For this reason, you need to hook up with a plumber who will be available at any time of the day to serve you.

• Short response time
Some plumbers take an eternity to respond to your request for their services even if you requested for emergency services. Look for a plumber who will respond quickly, typically in an hour or so, depending on the nature of the services required.

• Guarantees for work done
Be wary of plumbers who will not give guarantees for their work. And for those who offer guarantees, how long are these guarantees? A 10-day guarantee is not a good one, for example. Advocate for a longer guarantee period. Normally, a 3-month guarantee is good enough.

• Cost
Finally, the cost of a plumbing task should be reasonable. If you have a major plumbing task, you can ask for a quote from various plumbers and choose the most reasonable out of the shortlisted ones.

Qualities of a good plumber 

After putting all the afore-mentioned factors into consideration, you still need to look for specific qualities in the plumber that you will finally choose. This is because you may sign a contract with a plumbing services company that has several plumbers. A good plumber is one who:

• Has gotten the requisite training from a recognized institution
• Has all the required tools and equipment
• Shows high levels of professionalism at work
• Does not take shortcuts at work
• Is a good communicator

Where to get a plumber in Singapore

Now you know the qualities of a good plumber and you know what to consider before hiring one. The next question is, where can you get a good plumbing company? There are several plumbing service providers in Singapore, and getting one should not be a problem. Get in touch with the Public Utilities Board and choose from the list of registered plumbers. You can also look for advice online. There are several articles on plumbing in Singapore and you can easily get help from them.

In summary, plumbers are some of the professionals that are ever in demand. For this reason, it may be easier for you to hire a permanent plumber who will be at your beck and call whenever you need plumbing services.

How To Unclog Toilet Bowl Choke

In most of the homes clogging in toilet bowl happen at very unwanted times. At that time, you just wish to unclog that toilet bowl instantly so you can save your money and time both. Thankfully there are some simple tips that can help you unclog your toilet bowl without using any fancy equipment or without giving a lot of time for same. For your reference and help, I am sharing those options below with you and you can choose options that suit best for you.

Use plunger: To unclog your toilet, it is very important that you avoid the overflowing of your toilet. If water is not going down the drain after one flush, then the second flush won’t do any good for you. Opposite to this, it will just increase the problems for you due to overflowing. Once you get control on the water issue, take a high-quality plunger that makes tight seal with your toilet. This is very important because, without a tight seal, you won’t be able to make any good result. After that, you need to insert the plunger into the toilet bowl and you shall try plunging it into a vertical motion. If it is done, you would feel that relief and then you can try to flush your toilet.

If water goes away instantly, then you can stop worrying about it. If not then you may need to repeat the plunging process several times before you finally get rid of it. You should try this first before trying any other option. This method does not require any kind of chemicals so it is completely safe for you. Also, you can do that instantly, if you are getting late, then it can help you finish the work in less time and you can go to your work as well.

Use enzyme products: There are several enzyme waste removal products available in the market. You can easily buy this kind of product from your nearest home improvement store. This would be a good option for you because enzyme waste removal products are safe for your family and your surrounding as well. You don’t have to worry about the side effects or negative results for that. The only limitation for this option is that it will work only for organic waste removal and if you have blockage due to any nonorganic substance such as toys or plastic material, then you should use some other option for that. To unclog your toilet bowl using this kind of material, you normally need to pour the liquid into your toilet and you need to wait for overnight.

Once that waiting period is over, it should unclog your toilet and you should be able to use it again. That makes it one of the simplest process for same, but it is not fast enough. So, if you are in a hurry, then you may not like this particular method for removal of the clog from the toilet.

Try homemade drain cleaner: This is another solution that you can try to unclog your toilet bowl. For this solution, you need to have at least 2 to 3 litre hot (not boiling) water. Any less would not do the trick because you need to flush the same with force. Other than this you would also need =1 cup baking soda and 2 cup vinegar. In this method first, you need to pour the soda and vinegar into it. After that, you need to pour the hot water into it. Make sure you do it carefully else you might burn yourself. After pouring the water and other two things, you need to wait for overnight. If you have any kind of organic clogging, then this mixture should clear it without any trouble. If you feel your toilet is still clogged then you need to try some other options such as wire coat hanger or drain snake because. I am suggesting this because in this situation you may have some non-organic substance like a toy or plastic material that is causing this trouble. For removal of those substances, you only need to use mechanical options for a better result.

Try the drain snake method: In market, you can easily find some good quality drain snake that would help you unclog your toilet bowl easily. This would be a snake like structure that is made of spring like material and it can bend easily. Also, it may have a hook or similar structure at an end. The main goal of this action is that you should break the seal that is causing the clogging. It may take few minutes to several hours before you get the result. So, you need to have patience and you need to do it properly. If you have no proper time for this or if you run out of patience in less time then this might not be a good method for you. When you feel it is done, then you should try flushing the toilet several times before finalizing the work. If you don’t get any more complication or problem, then you can go ahead and use it else you need to work on it again.

In case, none of the above given solutions give any good result to you, then you shall not try any other methods for same. Instead of that, you should make a call to a plumber and you should leave the work to his hands. A plumber will check all the things that are necessary and he will take right actions to finish the work. In some cases, he may need to use special tools or equipment’s also. So, if above solutions are not giving any good results to you, then taking the plumbers help would be the easiest and the best method for same. And when you would try this method, then you would get the best results also for same without any complications.

Therefore, plumbing problems tend to be shocking and totally unexpected. The fact cannot be denied that a well-functioning plumbing system is most essential for every building, residential or commercial. Repairing of a plumbing problem simply cannot be put off, and neither can it be managed by do-it-yourself methods. Self-help can only give temporary respite.

* Emergency problems with boilers or water heaters are a major plumbing issue faced by commercial establishments.

Internal leaking or pipe breaking can cause severe damage to the building and affect its walls, flooring, and even its foundation.

* Clogged toilets are an issue that can be very upsetting. They create the unhygienic and smelly environment and make the workplace very unpleasant. Choked toilets and sewer back-ups turn-off not only your customers but also regular employees.

Apart from the fore-mentioned issues, a commercial plumber may also have to be hired in the case of redesigning of retail space or office. These workers are familiar with the unique plumbing requirements in each type of business and are also well aware of the municipal codes and regulations governing the system.

Whenever you do need emergency plumbers to attend to your building's plumbing system, make sure that you get quality services. Protect yourself from having to rush to the first plumber you see. It is a smart idea to anticipate the possible problems that you might have to face in the course of work, including plumbing and electrical problems.

Leaking Basin Tap - Replace Or Repair?

One of the common issues you are likely to face with your sink and basin tap is leaking water. Leaks can increase the moisture around your tap and sink leading to accumulation of bacteria and germs. It does not only result in a waste of water but can also put your family at risk when the mold and mildew start to pollute your indoor air quality. It is therefore important to immediately fix leaking basin taps as soon as you notice them. Fortunately, most cases are DIY and do not require much technical knowledge to accomplish. However, not all leaks can be solved through repair. Some need complete replacement of the tap or various components. You should be able to determine the right option for your situation. Other cases may require professional plumbers who have the experience and insights to fix any leaking basin tap.

What causes the leak?

In order to know whether you need repair or replacement services, you must first identify the cause of the leak. A basin tap basically consists of the tap, basin, bolts and pipes as well as isolating valves. Leaks can be as a result of loose bolts and screws, damaged valves or broken pipes. Loose bolts and screws are easy to fix as all you need to do is tighten the bolts back in place. Broken pipes can also be repaired and installed back in the plumbing system. Damaged valves and taps however require replacement. You can also consider replacement if you have an old basin tap that leaks some days and then remains in perfect functioning on other days. High water pressure can also push valves and the sealing tapes placed to prevent leaks on bolts resulting in leaks. Tap leaks are usually caused by damages in the washer, jumper valve or o-ring. The washer can be made of ceramic, rubber or cartridge. Although these parts wear out differently, it is often recommendable to purchase the whole set before dissembling your system and replace them.

Repairing/replacing basin tap

After you realize leaks on your basin tap, the next logical step is to find solutions for the problem. The two options you have are repair and replacement and the choice is determined by your situation. The first step is to turn off your water supply and then try to repair the system before calling for assistance. If your efforts do not yield results, call for professional plumbers to handle the issue.

• Repairing procedure – To repair leaking basin taps, turn off your main water supply and then open the tap to empty all water in the system. Unscrew all the holding nuts in your old tap and remove connectors that join the tap to pipes. Use a crank spanner to remove the nuts that secure the basin to the pipes. Check for damages that require repair services like cracked pipes and crevices on the basin.

• Replacement – Most leaking taps will require replacement rather than repair. It is much safer to replace broken pipes, valves and taps instead of repairing them. New replacements last longer and will prevent any further leaking. Once you have unscrewed the different parts, simply remove the damaged pieces and replace them with the new ones. For o-rings and jumper valves, you need to purchase the same model as the old damaged parts for them to fit in place.

When your basin tap starts leaking, it is probably a result of worn out valves, washers and o-rings. You can easily dissemble the system and replace damaged parts with new ones if you have a simple basin tap. Other complex designs may require unique tools to unscrew and dissemble the system.

Using professional services

While many people can achieve simple repair and replacement duties on their leaking basin taps, it is often advisable to use professional plumbers. Repairing or replacing such parts requires technical insights and various tools that you may not have. Professional plumbers have profound experience in the field and also own all the tools required to accomplish tap repair and replacement. What’s more they can diagnose other issues that may have facilitated the damage that caused leaks.

In developed regions like Singapore, finding plumbers should not be an overwhelming duty since they are many in the market. However, not all of them can guarantee desirable services even though they all promote their offer as the best. When some simply lack the capacity to handle your requirements, others offer cheap quality nonprofessional services. It is therefore important to carefully review the business and services before spending your money. Fortunately, reliable plumbers have various hallmarking attributes that can be used to distinguish them from others. Professional plumbers will determine whether you need replacement or repair services.

Things to consider

When using professional plumbing services to solve your leaking basin tap, it is important to choose credible licensed businesses that are allowed to offer the service within your region. Other aspects to consider include the following;

• Good reputation – Plumbers that have consistently provided top quality satisfactory services will definitely have a good reputation within the area. Look through reviews, comments and testimonials from previous clients to learn from their experiences.

• Long serving experience – While some new plumbers are able to provide high quality services, it is still advisable to check what long serving experienced businesses have. They depict profound knowledge and streamline service delivery perfected over many years of service.

Other aspects to consider include professionalism, use of high quality materials and brands, affordability, exceptional customer service, quality guarantees and provisions. Only use the services of reliable plumbers known to solve such issues.


Leaking basin taps are very easy to repair since it involves tightening loose nuts and parts of the system. However, most leaking taps require replacement rather than repair and this can be difficult to achieve if you do not have the tools needed. Some designs are also overwhelming to dissemble and require professional insights to rectify. If you have a leaking tap, the best approach is to take a keen look at the system and cause of leakage. If it is something you cannot achieve without professional help, simply turn off the main water supply and find dependable plumbers to help you out.

Why Hire Us As Your Plumbing Company?

For any home or office space, useful plumbing is everything. Individuals who have encountered a plumbing issue realize that this is not an overstatement but rather, a reality. Nobody needs to live in a house with a broken tap that makes a lot of noise all day, every day. Nobody wants to cope with broken or spilling pipes that mess your home and most definitely, nobody needs to manage a toilet that does not work well.

For these and other considerable number of reasons, plumbing is an essential part of your home or office environment. Guaranteeing the smooth flow at a maximal rate is ideal because water in your home is an inarguable imperative. A great deal of things can undermine the usefulness of a plumbing framework in the kitchen, latrine, or in the concealed piping channels in your home. For one, as a house or office develops old, so do the frameworks inside of it. It is similar to human development. As we get old, our organs seize to operate at the capacity that they used to.

The same applies to plumbing. A long time of utilization will cause the piping materials to wear away especially when it comes to pipes and taps. Thus, they seize to operate at full capacity. Because of the failure to operate at such levels, they end up having glitches that influence all parts of the home or office environment.

Another explanation behind plumbing that breaks down is technical issues that have little to do with wear and tear. Maybe the installation of the piping framework was not effective resulting in slackened pipes and taps. These are outcomes that everybody fears because dealing with them is expensive and time consuming. In truth, piping breaks and leaks in the piping channels can be a nightmare for homeowners. These breaks and leaks cause huge amounts of water to accumulate in entire home and this accumulation could possibly lead to the worst imaginable.
