Hot Water Installations & Repairs

Hot water system installation involves the installation of a hot water unit in a building or home. The process typically involves the following steps:

Assessment: Before any installation work begins, a professional plumber will assess the space that needs hot water to determine the appropriate size and type of hot water unit.

Mounting the unit: The hot water unit is typically installed on the wall of the building, in a suitable location. The unit needs to be mounted securely and level.

Electrical wiring: Electrical wiring needs to be installed to connect the hot water unit to the power source.

Water supply: The hot water unit needs to be connected to the water supply. This involves connecting pipes to the unit and to the main water supply.

Testing and commissioning: After the installation is complete, the system is tested to ensure it is functioning properly. This includes checking the temperature and flow rate of the hot water, as well as testing the thermostat and any other controls.

Insulation: It’s important to insulate the hot water pipes to prevent heat loss and improve energy efficiency.

There are several types of hot water systems available, including gas, electric, solar, and heat pump systems. Each type has its own installation requirements and considerations. It’s important to hire a professional plumber to install and maintain your hot water system to ensure it operates efficiently and safely. Regular maintenance is also important to keep the system running effectively and prevent breakdowns.

Blocked & Leaking Drains

Blocked and leaking drains can be inconvenient and potentially damaging if not addressed promptly. Call us at Den Services to handle these issues fast, here are some easy steps that may help.

Blocked Drain:

Use a Plunger: For minor blockages, you can try using a plunger to create suction and dislodge the clog. Ensure there is enough water in the fixture to cover the plunger. Plunge vigorously and repeat as needed.

Boiling Water: For simple organic clogs, such as grease or soap buildup, pour boiling water down the drain. This can help break down the clog and clear the drain.

Baking Soda and Vinegar: Mix equal parts baking soda and vinegar, then pour it down the drain. Let it sit for some time (around 15 minutes), and then flush with hot water. This combination can help dissolve certain types of clogs.

Leaking Drain:

Locate the Source: Identify the exact location of the leak. It could be from a joint, crack, or damaged pipe. Dry the area around the leak to ensure accurate detection.

Tighten Connections: If the leak is coming from a loose connection, use a wrench to tighten the fittings. Be careful not to overtighten and cause damage.

Replace Seals or Gaskets: Leaks can occur due to worn-out seals or gaskets. Depending on the type of drain, you may need to replace rubber seals, O-rings, or gaskets. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or consult a professional if necessary.

Pipe Repair: If the leaking pipe is damaged or corroded, it may need to be repaired or replaced. In such cases, it’s advisable to contact a licensed plumber for a proper assessment and repair.

Tap Repairs

Den Services offer fast and efficient Water tap repairs and address common issues such as leaks, dripping faucets, or difficulty in turning the tap on or off.

Here are some quick steps we can take to repair a water tap:

Shut off the Water Supply: Locate the water shut-off valve near the affected tap and turn it off to stop the water flow. If there isn’t a shut-off valve specifically for the tap, we may need to turn off the main water supply.

Identify the Type of Tap: Determine whether you have a compression, cartridge, ball, or ceramic disk tap. This information will help you understand the internal mechanism and necessary repair steps.

Fixing a Dripping Tap:

Compression Tap: For a dripping compression tap, we will likely need to replace the valve seat and/or rubber washers. Disassemble the tap, replace the worn washers, and reassemble it.

Cartridge, Ball, or Ceramic Disk Tap: Dripping in these types of taps is often due to worn-out cartridges, o-rings, or seals. Remove the handle and cartridge, replace the faulty parts, and reassemble the tap.

Fixing a Leaking Tap:

Leaking at the Base: If the tap is leaking at the base, it may indicate a faulty O-ring or seal. Disassemble the tap, replace the damaged O-ring or seal, and reassemble it.

Leaking from the Spout: A leak from the spout may require replacing the cartridge or other internal components specific to the tap type. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions or consult a professional if needed.

Reassemble and Test: After making the necessary repairs, reassemble the tap in the reverse order of disassembly. Turn on the water supply, slowly open the tap, and check for any leaks. If there are no leaks and the tap operates smoothly, the repair is successful.

We have the expertise to handle more complex tap repairs and can ensure proper functioning of the tap.
