How To Lower the Chance of a Flexi Hose Bursting
A flexi hose, or a flexible hose, can potentially become worn and start to leak. If the rubber core inside ruptures or splits, then a high-pressured leak can happen. This will require emergency plumbing.

 

A flexible connection is created to be able to cope with the different temperatures being supplied at mains water pressure. It is favoured among plumbers for the simple use and pliability. They are usually found under a sink, bath, or as a connector to the toilet for a cold feed pipe. The outer protection is easy to identify, so it is easily spotted.

 

It is important to have regular maintenance with plumbing, as when there are no obvious signs that there may be a leak, it is hard to guess the likelihood of the pipe bursting. A plumber will be able to check how watertight it is, as well as check the outside to make sure the outer protection isn’t wearing away or rusting. The inner core should not be seen as it can be damaged. If this is the case then it should be replaced.

 

If in doubt, call Riverside property services, we will be able to tell if there is a problem and reduce the risk of any impending emergency pipe work. Call us for all Emergency plumbing work and Bathroom Installations in Kingston upon Thames.
 

Advantages Of A Wet Room
One advantage of having a wet room is that the room is more open, so you have the space without worrying about potential obstacles, like the cubicle or tray.

 

You could use the room to express any design ideas, such as warm ambient lighting, and wooden features. Or you could go for a modernised look with glass, steel and cool lighting. Whatever you choose to do, you can make it your own aesthetic canvas.

 

Wet rooms can help to raise the value of your home, due to the sophistication and practicality. It is particularly useful with those who have mobility issues, and those with a young family. They are simple to clean which is also a plus, as without the tray that has the potential to gather mould and mildew, you don’t need to worry about that. If you need to mop the room down, the floor won’t be cluttered. Especially if you have a floating sink and the toilet is fixed to the wall.

 

The great thing about wet rooms is that they are unlikely to suffer from damp issues or leaks, due to the watertight nature of the room, particularly under the tiles. This means you don’t need to worry about maintenance as much, and the room will last longer than a standard bathroom.

 

So if you’re interested in the benefits of a wet room, then make sure you ask a professional for advise. Wet rooms are easy to fit and will give your home a sophisticated boost, so Call today for all Bathroom Installations in Wimbledon.

Accessible Bathroom Designs
With an ever-expanding market for accessible bathrooms, here are some ideas to get you started on designing your own functional and effective bathroom.

1. Wall hung cupboards
Cupboards hung in optimal positions on walls make for a both accessible and contemporary design. By placing cupboards strategically around a room, you can minimise obstructions while creating a minimalist, spa-style bathroom.

2. Low-slip floor tiles
An essential for any bathroom, try embracing a monochromatic colour scheme by using black, white or grey low-slip tiles. They create a safe environment and reduce the risk of falling in wet rooms.

3. Walk-in baths
A walk-in bath with a water tight door is a dignifying reintroduction to baths for those previously unable to bath alone due to the risk of tripping. Incorporate with bold geometric shapes or modern towel rails for a safe and accessible bathroom for everyone.
