Leaking Pipes and Drains in Glasgow

It can be pretty scary and frustrating when you find a leaking pipe in your home.  It could be a small drip drip leak that has formed a damp patch in the floor or it could be a full blown leak where water is steadily flowing from a leaking pipe in your home and the water is getting everywhere.

The first step to fixing the leak is to turn off your water supply. By stopping the water damage you will immediately be helping to limit the amount of damage it will cause to your property.  To turn off the water supply to your home, locate your stopcock and switch off your water supply.

Once you have stopped the water flowing from the leak, the first question you need to be asking yourself is what kind of leak is it that you have? With homes across Glasgow, the way that plumbing piping and drainage has been fitted into a home can differ drastically dependent on the age of the home and indeed the style of the home.  With older homes in Glasgow such as the sandstone properties across the west end, you will commonly find a ‘mix and match’ of old and new piping where the older copper piping has been mixed in with new plastic pipe work. If a pipe is leaking through metal fatigue (which is a fancy way of saying an old worn out pipe) then you may have to replace the entire length of pipe and replace it with an identical piece.  There are so many variables to contend with and on top of all of that, there is also a question of access.  If you know you have a leak but you can’t source it then there is the next issue of where the leak is coming from.

Plumbing Leak Case Study

We were called out to an existing customers home in Hyndland in the West End of Glasgow as they had found the inside of their spare bedroom cupboard was filled with water.

After an initial inspection, we discovered that the customer had recently installed a new washing machine and had turned off the water supply to their flat while they were removing and replacing their old washing machine.  The water stoppage tap was located in the cupboard of the spare bedroom and when it had been turned off, it had caused an old washer to finally crack.  This had caused a slow drip drip leak to build up in the spare bedroom which – because it was not a constantly used room – eventually became a full blown flooded cupboard.

We replaced the washer to stop the leak and then used commercial grade equipment to help dry the cupboard floor properly.

Whilst the customer was frustrated that they had a leak, they were happy with our service yet again.

  • 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.
