One of the most important steps in a renovation remodelling is the re-piping of the water pipes in the entire house. With good workmanship and good quality material used, you can extend the lifespan of water pipes. Our plumbers in Singapore can guide you in this major renovation work and can offer cost-effective materials and suitable plumbing services for your new house.
One of the most common problem faced by many home owners during their renovation is that they tend to mix up the processes by thinking plumbing works should be done last where on actual fact, plumbing works are usually first before new materials are being installed.
A classic mistake is when home owners often ask flooring contractors to install tiles first only to realise that when plumbers visit them to do re-pipping works, they need to drill and damage the existing tiles that are in the way of how their pipes should run.
Types of pipes in Singapore
The pipes used in pipe installations for residential properties by our plumbers in Singapore can be:
Copper pipes (metal): they have a proven standard of reliability since the ‘60s. They are not likely to leak and are tight and sturdy;
Galvanized steel (metal): these are rarely used in modern Singapore plumbing because of the negative effects they cause. They are hard to work with and may cause a reduced water pressure and clogged water lines in time;
Polyvinyl Chloride Pipes or PVC (plastic) pipes: these do not rust and they are very appropriate for a residential sink, bathtub and toilet drain lines or vent stacks;
Chlorinated polyvinyl chloride pipes or CPVC pipes (plastic): they contain an additional amount of chlorine which makes them safer for drinking water. This type of pipes is easy to work with and can be utilized for both cold and hot water;
Cross-linked polyethylene or PEX pipes (plastic): these are most suitable for retrofits and are very versatile, being able to snake through walls with ease and extend across the home.
How can you avoid renovation pipping mistakes? 
For customers who are engaging a interior designer / contractors for their renovation works, their contractors will be able to handle these works.
For customers who do not hire a renovation contractor, it would be best to plan a step to step guide from the start.
Understand the various process and what comes first is important to avoid incurring addition cost along the line during your renovation works.
How can Singapore Plumbing 24hrs help with your home re-piping? 
At Singapore Plumbing 24hrs, if home owners are able to provide a floor plan of their existing home, we will be able to advice on how the laying of pipes should be done to minimise the visibility  of these unsightly water pipes.
For proper pipe installation in your new home, or for any other plumbing services in Singapore, please contact our plumbers.

Water heater helps provide warm water to home on a daily basis. With more home owners spending more on their renovation to make heir home a more comfortable and relaxing place to stay in, water heaters becomes a part of their necessity.

Types Of Water Heater

In Singapore, home owners are given a number of choices for their water heater system. It is important to understand the pros and cons of each available system before committing to the right one.

Instant Water Heater

Instant heaters are the most commonly found in many of the homes in Singapore. As the easiest choice of installation and Low pricing, it is often the preferred option for many home owners.

Benefits Of Instant Heater
  1. Easy to install
  2. Low cost
Cons of Instant Heater
  1. Low water pressure
  2. Water not warm enough

Many home owners these days look forward to installing a rain shower set in their bathroom. The strong water pressure falling against our body makes bathing a joy. As rain showers require large amount of water, most instant heaters will not be able to provide the necessary heat to heat up the water fast.

This becomes a problem for home owners looking to install a rain shower set in their bathroom

Storage Water Heater

Storage heaters are the next most popular choice among home owners. With a storage tank of up to 35 litres, it becomes a popular choice for home owners with a family size of 4 people.

Benefits of Storage Heater
  1. Once water is heated, warm water can still be utilised even when the power is off making it a electric saving choice for families of 4 people and more
  2. Strong water pressure making bathing a joy even with the usage of rain shower
Cons of Storage Heater
  1. More costly to install compared to instant heater
  2. Takes about 5-10 minutes before water is fully heated.

Although storage heater can be more costly during the process of installation, it becomes a cost saving factor in the Long run for home owners if they have a family size of 4 and above making it the next most popular choice. With storage heaters, home owners can also be assured of the strong water pressure produced making bathing a joy and relaxing moment.

Gas Water Heat

Gas water heater is a option for many new home owners. Gas water heater requires a gas pipe that is fully owned by City Gas, to be link into their homes.

Benefits of Gas Water Heater

  • Toilet Repair - Singapore Plumber
Toilet Repair

Visiting a bathroom / toilet is an essential part of our everyday. With a prolong period of high usage, it is no wonder that it breaks down more often compared to the rest of the house.

Common Toilet Repair Works

As plumbers, we attend to many of the problems home owners faced on their water leak and pipe issues on a daily basis. Below are some of the common problems we get more often from home owners.

  • Clogged Toilets / Toilet Bowl / Basin

This is one of the most common problem home owners faced. The most probable cause for a clogged toilet bowl problem is that drainage that flushes both water and waste is being choked.

Plumbing Services: Once we have identified the problem which is a clogged drainage,  we will use high pressured specialised plumbs to flush the affected drainage.

  • Broken Tap Handle

A broken tap handle is next most common problem home owners face. This is usually caused by a prolong usage leading to wear and tear.

Plumbing Services: Changing of the entire tap is usually the best fix. By tightening the loose nut and screws that caused the broken tap handle is short term fix which we do not recommend to avoid further break downs.

  • Leaking water pipes

Leaking water pipes are usually cause by loose connecting joints. This usually happens after a prolong usage which is a common wear and tear issue.

Plumbing Services: We will first need to inspect and identify that the cause of the leak is due to a loose connect joint. We will proceed to replace the existing joint with a new joint to stop the water leaking

Common Toilet Cistern Problem

Toilet Cistern (Toilet Bowl Water Tank)  problems are what home owners commonly faced. Problems such as sunken flush button, broken flush handle to broken cistern mechanism usually what we face on a regular basis.

Many of these problems are common wear and tear problems home owners face and that it is caused by prolong usage leading to them being broken.
