Hard Water Problems
Many towns in the county of Surrey have hard mains water, and Addlestone is no exception. The water hardness is typically around 250-350ppm. That means the mains water contains high levels of limestone and magnesium that it's picked up on its journey through the underground rocks.
Limescale in the hot water pipes is a problem in Addlestone. It's caused by hard water. That means that your heating system will be working much less efficiently, which will cost you money. This problem can be fixed by using water softeners.
Total hardness is usually expressed in terms of calcium carbonate and is measured in milligrammes per litre (mg/l) or parts per million (ppm). The recognised classification scheme used by the water provider in this area is: 0-75 soft, 76-150 moderately hard, 151-300 hard, 300+ very hard. At 273 mg/l the water in Addlestone is hard.

Customer in Addlestone - 22 March 2019
Job Completed - Fitted new toilet. (Average score 10/10)
“I had a problem with my new toilet not flushing toilet paper and the person who originally fit it did not sort the problem. I found Plumbfix through Checkatrade and the plumber, Pip, came round that same evening to look at it. He told me the problem and gave me a quote. As soon as my new toilet arrived, Pip shifted things around so that he could fit it asap. The whole job took only a couple hours including fitting all new pipework, fixing the cistern and sealing the toilet to the floor. I now have a fully functioning toilet. I am very happy with Pip’s work and would highly recommend him.”

Job Completed - Fitted new kitchen tap. (Average score 10/10)
“Pip did a great job, it wasn't all that straight forward as the isolation handles, under the sink, were stiff and corroded, having not been turned for over 20 years! So the job took much longer than his estimate and he fitted new parts but he didn't charge us more. Nice friendly guy and offered great advice. Definitely recommend this Company.”
