A plumbing issue that affects home owners and residents throughout the West Green area is experiencing sudden temperature changes in the shower if someone flushes the toilet while it is being used. This can be very uncomfortable when it happens, and the reason why is because the act of flushing the toilet has reduced the amount of cold water available to the shower. Usually this is because the West Green house’s original plumbing isn’t sufficient to meet the household’s demand for water.
If you’re getting tired of sudden shocks in the shower, it’s a good idea to call out a West Green plumber. A qualified and skilled local West Green plumber may be able to do several things to help you avoid this problem in the future, by making sure the water supply is adequate to meet your household’s demands.
Some of the things a West Green plumber could do to help include the following:
- increasing the diameter of the pipes that supply water to your home – although this is a major piece of work and is likely to be very costly
- replacing your toilet with a water-efficient toilet
- installing a mixing valve in the shower, to avoid sudden temperature increases.
A good West Green plumber will be able to advise you on the benefits and drawbacks of each option, as well as giving you an indication of how much the work is likely to cost.
