Leaking Waste Pipe Plumbing Problems

A leaking waste pipe is not something anyone wants to have to deal with in their home  Whether it is a leaking waste pipe from the kitchen sink, the bathtub upstairs of from one of your homes toilets.

Yet leaking waste pipes do happen and when you need a professional plumber in Glasgow to get it fixed, you need to call JSL Plumbing.

There are ways that you can spot if you have a leaking waste pipe.  One of the most obvious is through dampness.  If you have noticed dampness in the ceiling directly below your bathroom, it could very well be that your bathtub waste pipe is leaking.

If you notice a collection of water in the cupboard under your kitchen sink then again, this could be a leaking waste pipe.

And if you can SMELL the leak then you may have a larger waste pipe leak under the floor.

Whatever kind of leak it is, JSL Plumbing can find it and we can fix it.

Leaking Waste Pipe Case Study

We were called to examine a drain exposed by the owner in Milngavie. The customer had signs of rising damp and was concerned it was related to the drains.

The kitchen waste trap was found to be overflowing, the downstairs bathroom trap was overflowing and there were leaks from the soil (toilet waste) connections.

The first actions was to clear the blocked traps which was achieved by sucking out the gravel using a hydrovac pump and clearing the blockage with a high pressure water jetter.

As the clay collars were broken and leaking it was decided to replace the section of drain, fit a new trap for the bathroom and join the new to old using ‘Flexseal’ collars.  A quote was raised that day, accepted and the work was carried out a few days later at a time convenient to the customer.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
