It is the same story. The stop taps for domestic water supplies need to be maintained quite regularly, or they will end up seized solid. Of course we are all too busy with our lives to do it. It is possible that you could open the stop tap with a wrench, but there is a risk of shearing the head off if the valve is too stiff. The stop cock at the propertys boundary could be used, if people knew where it was. With this in mind it is no wonder that a high percentage of the british public spend around 1.8 billion each year to carry out repairs to the damage that has been caused by their plumbing system springing a leak in their property, according to a leading british insurance company. Chingford Plumbers can supply and fit new appliances. Water leaks from dishwashers, washing machines, split water tanks, pipes, showers and baths result in damage?to around 3.3 million homes each year.A large number could be avoided simply by the homeowners in around a third of these incidents knowing where their main stopcock is and how to isolate it. This is really no surprise?as they are normally hidden away in the most inaccessible areas, like kitchen cupboards, or under floorboards. If you do find your stopcock, they can be hard to operate, especially for the elderly. There is a new device on the market that can easily control the water supply at home, so that in an emergency it will be easy to shut down your water supply. A Chingford Plumber carries the correct equipment.?The new device is really a valve that connects straight into a homes water supply, right after the fitted stop cock. The Surestop as it is called is connected by 2 mtrs of flexi-tubing to a remote switch. Once fitted you just press the switch to switch the water supply on or off. The Surestop uses water pressure to operate the switch so no electrical or battery power is required. it is a very effective isolation device.
