Fix My Home SA
One of the jobs that are often made less glamorous yet extremely important is the profession of a plumber. You only think of them when you’re in a big mess. Talk about water leakage, choked drains, clogged gutters, and the likes - these not-so-serious plumbing problems can actually make your home an inhabitable place and even your life difficult.
Of course, it is recommended that pipes and drains are smooth running and well hidden at the same time. However, this is why it’s difficult to fix your plumbing problem without the service of a professional plumber.
And the fact that these complex disorders of drains, pipes, and valves are found to occur both in commercial and residential areas. So, plumbing jobs need both the right skills and experience. A non-skilled or inexperienced plumber can create plumbing chaos in your building.
Look, we are a team that is operative in both residential and commercial plumbing services. We have skilled and experienced plumbers and employ state-of-the-art technology. It would be a great idea and clever to use services from an experienced plumbing company like us.
So, we’ll like to share with you the plumbing services we offer:
Residential and Commercial Plumbing
Usually, when there are plumbing emergencies like clogged washrooms, burst pipes, and the likes, people seem to find it a little difficult to differentiate between residential and commercial plumbing services. A lot of people suppose that a residential plumbing contractor should typically be able to deal with a commercial plumbing issue. In any case, to the public, the sinks, pipes and other appliances in bathrooms and kitchens are pretty much similar in both commercial and residential buildings.
It is often difficult for a typical individual who knows nothing about plumbing to differentiate residential plumbing from a commercial plumber contractor. The truth is that, while there are, of course, a number of similarities, there is a considerable difference between the two.
However, here at Fix My Home SA, we will get you in contact with a professional commercial and residential plumbing company based in South Africa. We provide our services to residential buildings and companies to ensure that your life is not made difficult as a result of your home plumbing system and business activities are not interrupted by broken pipes, clogs, slow drains and other plumbing problems. We service hotels and restaurants, hospitals, offices, grocery stores, schools, residential buildings and gas stations to mention but a few.
Repairing, Replacing and Installation of Faulty and New Geysers
Almost everyone never thinks about how or where hot water comes from in the shower. We just walk into the shower and expect warm enough water to gush out every time we need them. And when the hot-water system won’t work, which happens occasionally, we go panicking and start seeking a way to get it fixed. If your water heater goes out, then you can’t just wake up and enjoy a nice cool or warm shower. The fact is that if you want to clean yourself properly, you’ll need hot water and soap to kill the bacteria and germs on your body.
Though you could actually go years without having a single one heater problem, however, when it occurs, the issues are very easy to spot. The common issues are…
Not having adequate hot water
Discoloration in your water
Fowl order like an egg smell
Odd sound from the water tank
Last but not least no Hot water
So, if you are having trouble with your water heating system or you do know somebody that does, we will be glad to put you on the right track to your hot water recovery.
Maintaining and Unblocking of Drains
When you don’t properly maintain the drain system, it can cause many plumbing problems. There is a network of pipes, in a drain system, which can develop problems like blockages, bursting, and corroding. You need to consistently clean these drainage pipes so as to keep the system running efficiently. This is where you’ll require the services of a professional plumber who has the tools, skills, and experience to give the pipes a thorough cleaning.
The problem is that, eventually, your drain lines would gather organic debris and other dirt that can clog it. For example, toilet paper, soap scum, hair, and the likes can all cause a difficult-to-remove clog. Signs of a blocked drain are drains that take too much time to empty, garbage disposals that are not removing waste completely, experiencing low water pressure, and having difficulty flushing the toilet.
We recommend a professional drain cleaning service so you could prevent such problems. As we can diagnose serious issues like if there is any major damage to the drain system or sewer system including the septic tank and drain field. Fixing problems deep in your drain system requires specialized tools and equipment. This is why we use high-tech machinery like high water jets to eliminate the blockage from the drain. Moreover, as professionals, we can unblock clogged drains without sustaining any damage in your pipe system and flooring of your building.
Burst Pipe Repairs and Pipe Installations
One of the most disturbing experiences that you can have as a homeowner is to discover that one of your pipes has burst. This is because burst pipes can cause serious water damage to the area around it.
Quite frequently, we get reports of homeowners and caretakers who attempted to fix a burst pipe on their own and perpetually failed. We can’t emphasize this well enough; burst pipes are best left to the professional plumbing services for repair. Once you discover a burst pipe, you should call a professional plumber and turn off your water system. You must handle a burst pipe promptly in order to avoid further damage to the surrounding areas.
Now, what causes a pipe to burst?
You see, people contact us very often about frozen pipes in the winter. When the temperature is low, water is trapped in the pipes. Then this water freezes. This leads to surrounding pipes to expand and eventually, burst. Repairing burst pipes is quite affordable and worth every Rand spent on it as this will prevent more damage.
And lastly, the most reliable way to assure yourself that the pipes in the building do not burst is to upgrade the pipe.

Generally, all water supply systems are installed with a combination of pipes of different sizes and materials, outlets to deliver water to the building and valves.
