The most likely reason that your water is cloudy will be due to air being in the water. If this is this case then your water is safe to drink. If there is a sulfur smell or you are concerned about the quality of your water please contact Northern Ireland Water and report any problems you are concerned about.
The shut off valve is located at the point where the water supply enters your home. This is most likely under the kitchen sink, in a kitchen cupboard, under the stairs, in the bathroom, garage or utility room. If you are having trouble locating your shut off valve or it needs replaced, give us a call.
if you have just moved into a new home or business premises it is advisable to locate your shut off valve right away and check that its working.
First, please be aware that water heaters can be dangerous therefore do not attempt to fix the heater yourself unless you are qualified to do so.
At The Belfast Plumber we suggest turning off the water supply to the heater. There should be a water valve on the piping leading to the heater that you can turn off. If its a gas heater we also suggest turning off the gas supply. Then give us a call and we can arrange to have a look for you.
Whilst it is not absolutely necessary as (we hope) no one will be using water while you are away. However it is not a bad idea to turn it off. We know the risk is low, but imagine there was an unplanned leak in your home you may wish you had of turned off the water. Therefore why take the chance, turn it off.
If your water bill is unusually high and you are confident that you have not been using more water than usual then its possible that you may have a plumbing problem. Check all toilets and faucets to ensure you have no major leaks. Check outside where the water line runs to see if there are any signs of water pipes leaking in the ground. If you are still unsure please give us a call as we have a water leak detection service where we help customers identify and fix leaking pipes etc.
This is not a major problem, but if left alone it could turn into one. Its often due to pipes that are not properly fitted to the wall or ceiling and they are moving around causing a banging noise. If this is the case then in time the pipes can wear and can leaks or further damage. The first step is to locate the noisy pipes and fix them properly to the wall or ceiling to prevent them from moving around. Water hammer arrestors can also help also.
If both these solutions are beyond your capabilities, then please give us a call.
If the smell has been around more than just a few hours then you may have problems with your drainage system. Particularly if your toilet, shower or sink is slow draining or has completely blocked. If this is the case then look at what you can do to unblock the pipe at the location.
If you have a sewer vent pipe check that it is clear. If you do not have one, then it may be a good idea to consider installing one.
If the problem persists then please contact The Belfast Plumber.
There are a number of simple methods you can us before calling a plumber. Use a plunger to try and force through whatever blockage there may be. In some cases you may be able to remove some debris by hand. We also recommend using a good a good liquid drain unblocker that you can purchase in most supermarkets.
