What Do Bathroom Plumbers Near You Do?

A bathroom plumber is generally responsible for the installation and repair of showers, baths, toilets, wetrooms, taps and sinks all the way through to full bathroom suites. If you’ve ever had an issue with a toilet or shower, you’ll appreciate the value of a reliable plumber to keep these everyday essentials working smoothly!

Because of the varied nature of a bathroom plumbers job, they’re typically skilled across a number of areas. The majority of their duties will be things like:

  • Installation and maintenance: Whether you’re looking for an entirely new bathroom or simply a new shower, sink, toilet or set of taps, an experienced plumber can save a lot of headaches. Replacing cramped old bathrooms with modern alternatives, particularly using freestanding baths, wet rooms, walk-in showers and more modern bathroom suites, can be a cost-effective way to increase your home's value. Bathroom plumbers can also attend to less common fixtures like mixer valves for taps, booster pumps, sump pumps and macerators.
  • Unblocking pipes: A blocked toilet or faulty shower is a real pain and can completely disrupt the early morning routine. The bathroom plumbing specialists on HaMuch can remove all types of blockages in pipes and downspouts, and get things flowing freely again!
  • Repairs: This includes repairing iron, plastic, copper, steel, copper, PVC, multilayer or polypropylene pipes in the bathroom. Bathroom plumbers can also repair cold and hot water pipes and fix drains and leaks. Plumbers can also install and repair all towel radiators.

If you’re having a new bathroom installed, some bathroom plumbers will even be able to help with other related tasks including tiling, so it’s always worth checking with the plumber you contact through HaMuch.
