When you see dirty water coming out of a tap or notice your drain is clogged, you know it’s time to call a plumber. You will also need one when building a house or remodelling your bathroom. They’ll take care of all vertical and horizontal piping, and make sure you are properly connected to the water mains and public sewer. We recommend you consider updating plumbing when you buy an existing house/flat, especially if it was built more than 30 years ago, as this suggests the lifespan of piping is probably over. Old drains are made of lead or cast iron pipes, so they need to be replaced with plastic ones. Plastic pipes are a better solution as they’re free from sediments and aren’t prone to corrosion. Plumbing age affects the water quality. When remodelling your bathroom, we strongly suggest you should also replace all gate and safety valves, and if you prefer so, you can also have your bathroom fixtures replaced.
