Blocked Drains, Pipes and Sinks
Clearing Blocked Drains, Pipes, Sinks in North London
A blocked drain, sink, toilet or pipe is the last thing you need in your already busy life. Hair, food waste and congealed soap are just a few of the causes of a blocked drain.
Sometimes a blocked drain can be treated using household drain unblocking chemicals or through plunging. But what if you don’t want to use harsh chemicals and that plunger won’t shift the problem?
When chemicals and a plunger don’t work, then the blocked drain must be cleared by a trained professional. At ASP Plumbing & Heating, we have the expertise and know-how to resolve this issue.
At ASP Plumbing & Heating, we possess the equipment and expertise to tackle just about any blockage, whether it be on a bath, shower, kitchen sink or external drain. For blockages of this kind, we will disconnect the waste pipe work and clear the blockage manually, using a flexible rod or ‘snake’. No harsh, smelly chemicals for you to worry about. We find that the good old-fashioned way of clearing blocked drains works very well.
Leaking and Dripping Taps
Dripping or Leaking Taps
We fix leaking taps all over north London. Dripping or leaking taps can be a niggling irritation and can add unneccesary costs to your water bill. If left untreated, it can have a devastating effect on décor and even on the structure of the building. Underfloor leaks can rot structural timber, such as joists and bearers, which is why it’s important to address leaking taps right away.
If you notice a dripping tap or suspect a leak in your home, try to monitor when it is as its worst. If the leak appears worse when you take a shower or bath, then the seals or waste pipes could be at fault. Also, if the pressure on your heating system is constantly dropping, there could be a leak somewhere on the central heating circuit.
Water leaks, burst pipes, or dripping taps, whatever the issue, ASP Plumbing & Heating are experts in plumbing and can repair your dripping tap or fix your water leak problem.
Types of Taps
Taps come in two main types: traditional taps and lever handled taps. Traditional taps rely on a rubber washer that, once worn or perished, will cause the tap to drip as it cannot fully stem the flow of water. Lever handled taps usually only rotate a quarter turn and rely on a ceramic disc cartridge. The ceramic disc cartridge is often very specific to a certain tap manufacturer and will need to be specially ordered. If the manufacturer cannot be identified then it is sometimes easier to replace the entire tap.
We replace dripping taps with a wide variety of tap styles and brands including Bristan, Dornbracht and Crosswater, including Quooker instant boiling water taps. If you aren’t sure which one is right for you, then just ask and we’ll advise you on the best one for your needs. Just give ASP Plumbing & Heating a call.
Water leaks from baths and showers, caused by poor sealant or defective waste traps, are a common cause of water stains on ceilings. Damaged central heating pipes, hot and cold feeds and waste pipes can also be origins of water leaks. If you notice a water stain on a wall or ceiling, don’t delay in calling ASP Plumbing & Heating. We are experienced in locating household leaks and can usually diagnose the problem within an hour.
In the event of a burst pipe or major leak, try to locate your stopcock as quickly as possible. This will shut off the water supply to your property. The stopcock can usually be found under the kitchen sink or within a water main cover outside of the property. Turning the stopcock clockwise will shut off the supply. However stopcocks often seize up when not used over a period of years. Call ASP Plumbing & Heating and we’ll repair your pipes as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Dripping taps and other water leaks can cost you money or ruin your home. Both can be avoided.

Toilet Repair North London
Is Your Toilet Not Flushing?
Need a toilet repair in north London? Then ASP Plumbing & Heating can help. If your toilet won’t flush or if it’s clogged we know how annoying this can be. A running toilet can be a constant source of irritation, not to mention a waste of water. If your toilet cistern sounds like it’s constantly filling, it may be time to replace the inlet or flush valve, if not both.
There are lots of reasons why a toilet won’t flush. However, the majority of toilet flush problems originate in the cistern. We’ll lift the lid on your toilet and take a peek inside the cistern. We’ll check that the flapper valve arm and the lift chain are in good working order. We’ll also make sure that the float is rising high enough to close the fill valve. Your toilet won’t flush either if there is a clog in the toilet system or valve. But, don’t worry, we’ll fix that too.
Repairs of this nature are usually straightforward and should take between 1 – 2 hours, depending on the style of toilet. Whatever the issue is with your toilet, Ashley will investigate and fix the problem in no time. For all your toilet repairs in north London, give ASP Plumbing & Heating a call at 020 3858 0277
