The average cost of an Emergency Plumber per hour in Edinburgh and East Lothian can range from anywhere between £75 and £150 but as most plumbers carry out many a variety of jobs including many different kinds of parts on a regular basis, pinning down the average cost can be difficult to calculate. That is why we offer fixed price hourly rates (with time estimates) so there is no nasty surprises once we have completed the repair.

The water level in the tank is controlled by an adjustable float. A float that’s set too low produces a weak flush; if it’s set too high or failing – water spills into the toilet overflow tube and the fill valve won’t shut off – The toilet keeps running. Adjust the float until the water shuts off at the proper level. If this fails see: How to switch off my water or contact our local Musselburgh Emergency Plumbers
