Worcester Bosch boilers

As a Brighton boiler installer, customers usually ask me which boilers I prefer to install. At h2flow we have experience with all makes and models of boilers from the different manufacturers.

A plumber’s own bathroom

Posted by on 8:16 am in Shiny new bathrooms | 0 comments

Click here to view all the images. When looking at jobs I sometimes get asked ‘what would you do if it was your bathroom?’. I recently completed a refurbishment of my own bathroom so I guess this would be a good opportunity to show how I would do it! It may not be to everyone’s taste but the key here was to create a relaxing but durable bathroom that would still look fresh in years to come. Overcoming the problem of keeping it looking good as years go by is difficult due to the fact that this is a ‘wet room’ but through the choice of the...

How a tile a bathroom

Beginning the tiling process can be confusing, especially when it comes to where to start. But today we are going to give you a few guidelines on how to get started and actually finish this job. Authenticity First of all, you need to ensure you have purchased your choice of authentic bathroom tiles. These could either be for the floor or for the walls, but they have to be made to suit the bathroom. Size Depending on the size of your bathroom, you could choose either small or big tiles. Interior designers usually recommend small tiles for...

How to unblock a bathroom sink

We have all experienced at some time a blocked or slow draining bathroom sink. The first reaction may be to run out and buy an easy to use but corrosive drain cleaning product. But hold on, there are more natural ways to solve the problem of a clogged drain. If you find that the clog is stubborn and after several attempts you are not successful, call a licensed plumber. Below you will find suggestions to remove clogs using natural products; many found in your kitchen cupboard. The First and Fast Tip One suggestion is to use baking soda, white...

Warminghurst, West Sussex

We’ve just completed a very interesting job from a mechanical installation point a view. The job, sub contracted through a local builder, involved converting an old barn into a beautiful house with incredible views over the South Downs. The specification was to fit the boiler, cylinder, tank, pump and valves in the utility room which is inside the smaller of the 2 buildings about 10 metres away from the main building. To take the heat from the boiler and hot water into the main building involved laying some huge, pre lagged Uponor pipework....

Another big one finished…

Posted by on 9:47 pm in Shiny new bathrooms | 0 comments

Just finished a big job consisting of 2 bathrooms in the same property at the same time. I allowed 3 weeks from start to completion and was pleased that we finished the job completely within that time. Obviously the customer was happy too as even when you do your best having both your bathrooms ripped out and replaced does impact on your living standard somewhat. I am over the moon with the results and both look great though I am quite partial to the man’s shower room (it was a ‘his’ and ‘her’s’ job)....

Highflow Combi Boilers

Posted by on 7:32 pm in Uncategorized, What we've been up to | 0 comments

One of my customers had recently had a loft conversion and was complaining of poor flow rates from the shower in the new loft bathroom. We decided to go with this Worcester Bosch highflow boiler which is capable of producing 20 litres per minute of hot water. We also upgraded the size of the supply pipes to 22mm from 15mm. Once everything was fitted the customer was able to run 2 showers at the same time with no noticeable drop off in flow from either of the showers.

Testimonial

Just received this testimonial from my customer at Palmeira Square, Hove: “Nat has done a fabulous job of my new bathroom, but also, he did so much more. Nat did all the things you’d hope a contractor should do: turned up (on time), did the job (on time) and finished (on time and on budget). But the genuine nature of the man came through in all the extra detail and service he provided.   In an industry often defined by all the wrong people it was so, so refreshing to meet a man that takes pride in the quality of his work and the...

Boilers and bathrooms…

Posted by on 2:14 pm in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Wow what a crazy week it has been. I was shattered by the end of it. Finished off the shower room I have been busy with over the past couple of weeks, fitted 4 boilers (with the help of a sub-contractor) and did a few smaller jobs in between. On Tuesday night I did not get in until 9.30 having started at 7.30am – I could barely move! On the plus side my customer in Palmeira Square, Hove is very, very happy with the finished result. It was quite a challenging job as the room was quite small and the walls were all over the place. I...

Busy, busy, busy

Posted by on 8:59 pm in What we've been up to | 0 comments

This time of the year is a bit crazy for us plumbers. Lots of people are turning on their boilers for the first time as the weather starts to bite and finding components have gone on the blink, or started to think they might need a service. We’ve been getting lots of enquiries about fitting new boilers and heating systems, too. I must say I do find this a bit odd when some installs can take a few days, during which time there is no heating and hot water. Why not get it done in the middle of summer, I say. Guess I should not...
