Blocked Tap - "Make sure you turn the water off at source before attempting to clear a blocked tap by taking it apart." Blocked Sinks - "If you are using a plunger, trying to unblock a blocked sink, cover up the overflow holes with a damp cloth,this helps build up the pressure." Toilets  - "If your toilet ball float is leaking and filling with water, take off the float (by unscrewing it), empty it, then screw it back on and wrap it in a plastic bag." Starting Threads on Pipes  - "When threading pipes it is sometimes difficult to get started. Make it easier by cutting slots in the end and then cutting off the end later." Leaky   Toilets    -   "If   you   think   that   your   toilet   might   be   leaking   slightly,   check   to   see   if   the   problem   is   not   due   to   condensation   before   calling   out   a   plumber.   Condensation problems can be solved by improved ventilation when bathing or showering." Leaky Cistern  - "A clever way of checking to see if your cistern is leaking is to put in some food coloring." PTFE   Tape   -   "Use   PTFE   tape   when   fixing   a   leak   or   making   joints.   The   tape   should   be   wrapped   around   the   thread   of   the   pipe,   clockwise   when   viewed   from   the   end   of   the pipe is the correct way to put it on." Good   Practice   -   "If   you   are   installing   tanks   and   fitting   pipes,   be   sure   to   cover   the   ends   of   the   pipes   with   tape   to   stop   pieces   of   plastic   and   swarf   from   dropping   down   them, the bits and pieces will block taps later on and cause all kinds of problems." Showers    -   "If   the   water   pressure   is   very   poor   in   your   shower   it   may   be   due   to   lime-scale   build   up.   If   you   live   in   a   hard   water   area   you   should   clean   your   shower   heads   every three months or so. If the scale is too bad it may be an idea to get either a new hose, or a new shower head." Water   Hammer    -   "If   your   water   pipes   sometimes   make   a   loud   "hammering   noise"   after   the   toilet   has   been   flushed   or   sink,   etc.   ask   the   hardware   store   for   something   for "water hammer". Cause   of   "Hammering   Water   Pipes"   -   "This   is   caused   by   a   pressure   build   up   of   water   in   the   pipes.   The   simplest   solution   is   to   turn   down   your   water   pressure   at   the   stop- cock." Repairs   to   low   pressure   water   pipes    -   "The   repairs   can   be   carried   out   while   the   water   is   held   back   by   stuffing   bread   up   the   pipe.   It   should   remain   in   place   long   enough   for a repair to be made." Frozen Pipes  - "I find that the best way to melt the ice in frozen pipes is to put hot water bottles over them.  I hear that using a hair-dryer is good as well." Split   Pipes    -   "If   your   water   pipe   has   split,   a   temporary   fix   you   can   do   whilst   waiting   for   a   qualified   plumber   is   to   wrap   torn   strips   of   fabric   very   tightly   around   the   break.   Keep   a large saucepan or bucket underneath the join to catch any drops." Removing   Taps    -   "When   removing   nice   tap   fittings   (such   as   gold   ones)   for   maintenance   reasons,   use   a   thick   cloth   to   protect   it   from   the   jaws   of   the   wrench,   otherwise   you'll get a load of scratches on them." More Good Tap Advice  - "When taking a tap apart, always keep the plug in to prevent anything useful falling down the plug hole."
