The Different Types of General Plumbing A Licensed Plumber Can Handle

When it comes to plumbing, there are a number of different installations in a home such as pipes, drains, faucets, showerheads, toilets, sinks etc. While we at SPS Plumbers can handle all types of complex and emergency plumbing jobs, we can also provide excellent general plumbing solutions. There is a difference in these two services, in the former our services are requested because there may be an emergency plumbing situation like a pipe burst or a water backup in the shower or sink etc.

Our services

These situations are referred to as emergencies because they crop up without warning and can cause sudden damage and trouble; they also need to be attended to without delay. As mentioned earlier, we are on call round the clock and provide prompt and efficient emergency plumbing solutions to commercial as well as residential customers. But there are a number of other plumbing jobs that we handle as well that can be categorised as standard or general plumbing works such as:

  • Faucet and tap installation- Faucets could be installed in various areas of your home such as the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry areas. There could be taps in certain outdoor spaces of your home too. While good quality taps and faucets last for a very long time without any trouble, the gaskets and valves within them can become worn out over time and will need to be replaced.
  • Water pressure testing- If you feel that the water pressure in your home is very low and you can’t have a satisfactory shower or even wash utensils under the kitchen faucet well, you should consider getting water pressure testing done. We will use special water pressure tools to check what the problem is and will provide a suitable solution.
  • Shower head replacement- There are times when the shower heads in your bathrooms become old and tarnished or there is excessive amounts of scaling inside them. This hampers the flow of water and replacement becomes the only option. We can also install water-efficient shower heads if you prefer.
  • Toilet repairs– If you find that the water is leaking into the toilet we can fix that problem quickly and efficiently.

Other general plumbing solutions

In addition to all these services, we also handle hot water installation, repair and replacement services; water leaks, backflow prevention, storm water drains installation and repairs and more. We are very meticulous and professional in our approach to work and make sure that only the best spares are used in the repairs and replacement tasks. This ensures the job is done to the highest standards.

We also have highly skilled and licensed plumbers on our team and provide guarantees for our work; which ensures we do the job right the first time around.
