“The team that came to fix the leaking radiator valve at our office was quick to arrive and wasted no time in sorting the system out. We were very pleased with the price of the job too. Thank you, Drain Doctor Southampton and Portsmouth.”

Mr. C. – Southampton

We were called to attend a plumbing emergency in the outskirts of Southampton recently. Mr. C. had drained and moved a radiator during some recent decorating work. When he came to reconnect the pipework the thermostatic valve broke causing water from the heating system to flood into the meeting room of his office suite.

When we arrived, Mr. C. had turned off the water supply to the system and was mopping up water from his newly decorated room.

All Drain Doctor Southampton and Portsmouth vans are kept fully equipped to enable our technicians to complete the majority of call-outs on the first visit. This meant that as soon as he arrived on site at Mr. C.'s office we had the right equipment available for the job in hand and set to work straight away.

After installing a new thermostatic valve, the Drain Doctor technician refilled the heating system with water and bled it to remove excess air from the pipes.

Thermostatic valves need to be used periodically to make sure that the mechanism doesn’t seize up. This can be done simply and quickly when the heating system is running. Valves should be opened and closed before being returned to the desired setting.
