What does a plumbing service include?

Your plumber will diagnose any issues, repair them to the highest standard, and give you advice. Whether you're looking for a master plumber or journeyman plumber, Airtasker can connect you with local plumbing contractors around you. The exact process and inclusions will depend on the kind of service for your plumbing needs, like:

Plumbing installations

If you’re installing a new kitchen, bathroom, or dishwasher, you’ll need a plumber to get the pipes connected. Your plumber can help with fridge water line installations, mixer tap installations, new shower heads, and more. They’ll take a look at your space and existing setup, then use the right tools, pipes, and equipment to get everything connected and running smoothly, with no leaks or possible water damage.

Fixing leaks

One of the most common plumbing repair issues is leaking showers and taps. Not only does the drip-drip-drip get super irritating, but it can lead to flooding, water wastage, and excessive water bills. Your plumber will check the situation, then turn off your water so they can take a closer look. They’ll repair or patch your leaks and install any new parts needed. 

Hot water system repairs and installations

There’s nothing worse than running out of hot water for showers, washing machines, and dishwashing. Find a plumber near you to help get it fixed faster when you need emergency hot water system repair, new water heater installations, or upgrades. You can also book a standard gas plumbing service to make sure everything’s safe and working as it should. Your plumbing contractor will assess your hot water needs, recommend any fixes, and then either repair or replace your parts to get them all in working order. 

Pipe repairs

Your pipes are crucial for bringing freshwater in and draining waste water out, but they can get damaged by storms, interference, tree roots, or just ageing. If you think you have a pipe problem, it’s important to find a local plumber near you and call them in for PVC pipe repairs as soon as possible to minimise damage. If the pipes are exposed, your plumber may disconnect any water services to them, then remove and replace the damaged section. They’ll use high-quality adhesives and seals to ensure the joins don’t leak, move, or burst.

Blocked drains and toilets

If, in the words of Kenny, “there's a smell in here that will outlast religion”, it’s time to call your local plumber for help. Blocked drains and toilets aren’t just smelly. If you leave them, they could overflow and cause flooding and health issues. If you’ve unsuccessfully tried to clear the blockage yourself, call in your plumber. They’ll use more advanced (and powerful) tools to clear even the most stubborn drain blockages and toilet blockages without damaging your pipes and fittings.

Water pump to microcamper sink no longer working

£65

Sciennes, City of Edinburgh

17th Nov 2022

The inner tubing allowing water to be pumped from the water tank under the sink to the kitchen tap broke. I replaced this but have not reconnected the sink as the pump now has mysteriously stopped working. Also, the wiring under the sink is all over the place and needs tidying as it is in a storage area and can easily be knocked. Some of the wires here have been sellotaped rather than using electrical tape to repair. Todo: - Make pump work again or advise to purchase new one. - Reinsert kitchen tap into kitchen sink and silicone as necessary. - Tidy wiring under sink so that it is out of the way of pots and pans – would it be better for it to have its own housing or something? - Any wiring with sellotape please retape with electrical tape or a suitable equivalent. - Due date: Flexible
