Many people don’t realise that the kitchen and bathroom are the most expensive rooms to build in a house, not just because of the fittings and finishes that are used, but also due to the costs involved in providing for water and the waste that goes with it. It is therefore vital to ensure that you make use of qualified plumbers with a good reputation such as BF Maintenance.

Solar Geysers

With the dramatic increase in the cost of electricity in the last couple of years, consumers have to start investing in green energy solutions if they don’t want to end up paying an arm and a leg to have hot water. As one of the alternate solutions, solar geysers can offer you a dramatic reduction in your monthly electricity bill. Most people don’t realize that an electric geyser draws an incredible amount of power daily.

In some cases using solar energy can save you up to 30% of your monthly electricity bill. By calculating the savings you will enjoy by making use of solar energy you can pay the solar geyser off in as little as 2-3 years after installation.

What are the consequences of not fixing that pipe?

Not fixing a leaking pipe can cause a multitude of problems which will end up costing a lot of money if left unattended. At first leaks may seem minor but left unattended they could cause massive water bills and extensive water damage to tiles, floors, cupboards, ceilings, walls carpets and costly furniture and audio/video equipment.

When doing the Certificate of Compliance inspection the plumber checks:

That there are no leaks on the property
That the storm water drainage is sufficient and is not connected to the sewage system
That the house’s water meter functions properly
That the geyser installation is according to SANS 10254 standard
That the general plumbing conforms to code.
