What plunger should I pick?
As well as your emergency plumber Bristol we also do day to day tasks such as repairs to toilets, taps, sinks and radiators. A known remedy for many home clogging issues is to make use of the tried and tested plunger. What plunger to pick is very much depending on the sink or in question.
For hygiene reasons it’s advisable to always use different plungers for your kitchen and bathroom, and to have a separate one for the toilet. They don’t take much space and are a relatively small investment to make sure that you have the right tool for the job should a nuisance block strike.
To save you some confusion and give you some direction whilst out deciding on what plunger you should pick. Here’s a breakdown of the three most common ones.
The cup plunger, the model which comes to mind directly when anyone utters the word. Wood handle with a red rubber cup at the end of it. Sometimes called sink saver. This is the basic model and is great all around. This plunger is a great pick for regular kitchen sink needs and other drains which have a relatively flat surface to work with. Such as your shower or your bath drain.
Toilet specific plungers look like the basic type with a protruding nozzle. This is to help it get a good seal around the opening. This type is far superior to the basic model for that specific job. Accordion plungers look like you would imagine. A plunger merged with an accordion. This often plastic variety is easy to use and suitable for a range of smaller clogs. They are versatile and doesn’t require you to exhaust yourself when using it. This is an effective model and you should pick this plunger for your general kitchen and bathroom needs.
We hope this helped you with what plunger you should pick. If you have further questions or need more information feel free to ring us at any time.
Plumber Bristol here to help new homeowners
Investing in property and getting yourself on the housing market is one of the biggest steps anyone can take in life. This is especially the case in the UK where, unlike other European countries, the rental market is not that large for domestic properties. Owning your own house is a big hurdle to overcome in life, but unfortunately, it does not necessarily get any easier from there. If anything goes wrong in your new home, the cost of remedying the problem now falls squarely on your shoulders. Unlike years gone by when you lived in rented accommodation, there is no longer a landlord ready to spend their money to remedy the problem at your property. Now it is your responsibility to ensure your home is kept in tip-top repair.
To ensure this, it’s worth keeping the number of an expert plumber Bristol stored safely in your phone book. After all, plumbing is certainly an area of home ownership that can cause people a great deal of grief if not thought about correctly. Plumbing problems, if left untreated, can result in long-term damage through leaks and flooding. However, most plumbing problems are actually quite simple to remedy. That’s why it’s important that you have a plumber Bristol you can call at all times of day for a reasonable price. We’ve always had a mantra of putting affordability at the heart of everything we do and this is the case no matter what time of day or night that you may call.
A leak is a very common problem your professional plumber Bristol regularly encounters. The problem is that a lot of the time, a layperson cannot work out exactly where it’s coming from. Before calling a professional plumbing service, it’s worth reminding yourself to turn off the flow of water into your property. After all, if there’s no water coming in then it can’t go out anywhere. Before going any further, if you do not feel competent, make sure you call your local plumber Bristol to investigate first. Our 24/7 plumber Bristol team can quickly diagnose the issue and get it fixed before you may accidentally cause longer-lasting damage.
Central heating and boiler repair from your plumber Bristol
One of the most frustrating things for homeowners, especially in Winter, is a problem with your central heating. Everyone knows that the basics of central heating concern a boiler, radiators and interconnecting piping. However, when something goes wrong, it’s not always clear where the issue may lie. It’s potentially complicated further by the different methods of plumbing pipework which a plumber Bristol may have completed on installation. Whatever system you have, your plumber Bristol has highly-trained plumbing engineers available to tackle the problem.
Very often, the problem is not in fact with your boiler, but a radiator. The easiest way to tell whether this is the case is to see if your heating is affected in one room, a few or all of them. If all of them are affected by a lack of heating, it’s likely that you have an issue with your boiler. This is of course something a professional plumber Bristol can assist you with. However, even if it appears to be a boiler issue, there is the chance your radiators may be up the creak too and thus it is still worth checking them.
The most common reason radiators don’t work is due to the presence of trapped air. If this is the case, the likelihood is that you will need to bleed your radiators. This is a relatively simple job to be completed by a plumber Bristol. All you need to do is unscrew the bleed screw until you hear a hissing sound. Once the hissing sound dies away and water starts coming from your radiator, you need to tighten up the screw and you should find your heating working again.
It may be that the whole radiator is cold in which case you should check the valves on both sides of your radiator to ensure both are open to allow water in. If you’re still unsure, you need to call a qualified plumber Bristol who can be with you in rapid times and ensure your heating problems are resolved quickly.

A professional Bristol plumber
One of the most common problems a local plumber Bristol encounters is slow draining plugholes. These can either be in your bathroom and kitchen sinks, your shower or your bath. Wherever the plughole is located, having a slow running sink or bath tub is an inconvenience no one should have to put up with.
A slow plughole in either your bath or shower tends to be – unsurprisingly – because of hair clogging up the drain. Now you don’t have to panic, you’re not going to have to shave all your hair off to solve the problem! Sometimes it’s a case that you do not even have to try and remedy the problem with a complicated technique. Sometimes the hair clogging up the plughole is actually located at the top of the equipment and easily accessible. In this situation you can even use your hand to scoop it out and dispose of it a in waste bin. If it is not clear where the blockage is, it’s likely to be further down the drain which means you’re going to need to put something down it to try and break the blockage up. Most people automatically think that bleach is the answer. While bleach does prove effective, it can have a damaging effect on the health of your drains if not diluted properly. As such, we tend to recommend attempting the baking soda method. You first pour a cup of baking soda down the drain, followed by a cup of vinegar. The two chemicals react and have proven effective at breaking up the hair and grease in the drain to allow the water to run fully again.
When it comes to both the kitchen and bathroom you should definitely consider investing in preventative solutions too. A drain protector in either your kitchen sink or in your bathroom helps catch any dirt, hair or food from going down the drain. This allows you to easily dispose of the waste in a bin and ensure the longevity of your drainage systems.
You’ll find that your Bristol plumber team are always happy to offer you advice on maintaining your plumbing systems, free of charge. For larger problems that need a quick and sure fast remedy, make sure you call a friendly Bristol plumber today!

Unblocking Drains – plumbing Bristol problems
I am often called to plumbing jobs around the area. This might be an outside drain, a bathroom drain or a kitchen drain. Maybe it’s a garden tap or the drain in the garden. Usually this is a result of grime building up in the drains and a lack of drain maintenance that would usually involve regular flushing to keep the drains clear. But let’s be honest, who usually remembers to flush the drains with all of the other things we have to do? But don’t despair. I have lots of experience of unblocking internal and external drains and will make sure yours are dealt with efficiently and quickly.

Call me before calling a more expensive drain unblocking company and you could save hundreds!

How to clear a Blocked Drain with Bristol Plumber
If you have a blocked drain the chances are you are going to try and fix it by yourself before calling a professional. And that is more than OK! There are many easy home remedies for blocked drains which we at Bristol Plumber are about to share with you. But if none of these work for you, or you think the problem is particularly large, then it’s definitely time to call in the professionals and not have to face the horrors of plumbing alone. Whether your blocked drain is the kitchen sink, or a shower drain, try the following methods to remove the blockage.
Caustic Soda can be poured down a drain to help remove any buildup inside it. Be cautious here and follow the instructions and warnings on the package as this chemical is corrosive, and do not let children near while you are doing this. Another method you can try is to simply plunge the drain. Make sure you cover the overflow to allow the plunger to work to maximum benefit, and plunge away at the drain. This may dislodge the blockage but may result in the blockage simply moving further down the pipe, so do this at your own risk. If you have easy access to the pipes from the drain, for example the U-bend for your sink, then in some cases you can unscrew the pipe and manually remove the blockage. This only works with blockages in the U-bend themselves, most often seen in kitchens and caused by a buildup of food. But watch out, as whatever nasty stuff is causing the blockage (and any backed up water) will come shooting out once you remove the U-bend! In order to not face this possibility, it is best to call a professional to do the dirty work for you. If none of these have worked then it is time to call Bristol Plumber now, and we will have your drains unblocked in no time.
Water Filtration for your Water

Many people are rightly concerned by the quality of their water supply as it often contains impurities. A water filter can remove many of these unwanted impurities such as chlorine, lead and mercury. Don’t get locked out of the best drinking water.. The taste of the water can also be improved. There are several systems available, for example, an under the sink, whole mains supply systems that filter all of your water or shower head filters that simply screw on to the shower head..

Unblocking a drain with baking soda and Bristol Plumber
It’s an old trick that baking soda can be used to unblock drains. While this doesn’t work in every case, and may not work if your blockage is particularly bad, we here at Bristol Plumber have some handy tips and a quick guide to this drain unblocking method.
If the sink is full of water, first you want to put a bucket under the P-trap (underneath the sink in the cupboard) and open the P-trap to let the water out. Warning – this can splash a lot and be messy! Once that is done, replace the P-trap and ensure it is sealed. Empty the bucket and put the empty bucket back underneath, in case you did not reseal the trap correctly.
Now boil an entire kettle full of water, and pour this down the sink. For a light clog you may want to do this multiple times. The boiling water helps dissolve any oils and congealed substances causing the blockage. Once you’ve poured the water in, add powdered baking soda to the sink. Bristol Plumber recommends a half cup, but follow the instructions on the package. Always ensure you are safe with baking soda, as it is a chemical and will require medical attention if it gets into your eyes or lungs. Do not touch it with your bare hands. Once this pours down into the drain, ensure that you plug the drain and create a tight seal.
After around 10-30 minutes flush the system again with boiling water. If the water still refuses to go through the system easily, or you couldn’t complete any of the steps ass the sink wouldn’t drain at all, then it’s time to call in the professionals as you have a big blockage on your hands. Look no further than Bristol Plumber, we specialise in blockages of all shapes and sizes.
