Frequently Asked Questions
I have a burst geyser, what shall I do?
Call AD Plumbing on 082 218 0650.
How can I save water?
Install flow restrictors on your basin taps, sink taps, shower rose.
Don’t flush your toilet every time; flush it once a day if possible.
Do not let the tap run whilst brushing your teeth or shaving, brush teeth with a cup of water, shave in a bowl of warm water.
Harvest rain water, invest in a water storage tank and use that water to flush toilets etc.
Why should I hire a certified plumber?
Plumbers must demonstrate their proficiency in multiple plumbing skills in order to receive their certificate.
Why is my hot water cold?
That can happen due two reason, either the thermostat or the element has packed up.
Why is the hot water coming out of the overflow from the geyser?
If there is a hot or boiling water coming out of the overflow from the geyser it means that the thermostat has stopped working and the safety valve has blown off which is doing its job to relieve pressure.
Firstly switch off the electricity to the geyser and then call Andrew Duncan Plumbing.
Why is the water continuously running in the toilet bowl?
This is because the inlet valve has torn a washer and either the valve must be replaced or a new washer needs to be installed.
Why there is no pressure coming out of a tap?
If there is no pressure coming out of a tap in the bathroom or kitchen, do following:
Remove the aerator spout.
Clean out the filter of debris and your pressure will be back ;)
If the problem remains, call Andrew Duncan Plumbing service.
