New PowerFlush procedure

Magnaclense Powerflushing

15th May, 2020, Kristian Lay

We discovered that by attaching the Adey MagnaCleanse to our PowerFlushing machine we get fantastic results. This was some of the sludge we were able to remove from a heating system in Bungay.

Kristian thought he had come up with a great way of keeping dry while getting tools during this boiler installation in Lowestoft. Cameron thought otherwise…

Tidying up the Cupboard

Tidying up the cupboard

15th May, 2020, Kristian Lay

In true Viking tradition we invaded Loddon to change this gas boiler, we added a filter, created a shelf in the airing cupboard and updated the controls, so with a 10 year guarantee this customer will have a warm home for years to come… and somewhere to put their towels.

Oil Boiler by the coast

Boiler by the coast

Its nearly a year since we became OFTEC registered, and we have been enjoying fitting Worcester Bosch Oil boilers. This one near Southwold we were able to put outside, freeing up space for the customer in their kitchen. It comes with a 7-year guarantee so it will provide warmth for the house for years to come.

New Boiler near Halesworth

We like to see if we can improve on the existing boiler installation, so on this job near Halesworth we levelled the floor, re plumbed the pipework, added a magnetic filter and made the flue terminate in a safer location. The customer was kind enough to give us a fantastic review on Which? Trusted Traders site (where we now have over 70 reviews).

Tylers First Year

Viking Plumbing and Heating News

15th May, 2020, Kristian Lay

This February Tyler celebrated 1 year with us as an apprentice plumber. In the last year he has been learning new skills with us in the workplace that will be essential in his future career.

Having finished his technical certificates at Lowestoft College, he is now enrolled at City College, Norwich, where he will be assessed for his abilities on site.

He is picking up the fundamentals of the work on heating systems and boilers, as well as the plumbing we undertake. We are delighted with how he has progressed and he has become an asset to us as we undertake new work.

New Viking and a busy start to 2019

Busy Start to 2019

3rd March, 2019, Kristian Lay

We are investing in the future!

New apprentice Tyler Limburn joined us in January and has fitted in really well.

He’s nearly finished all his technical certificates and we are showing him the practical side of things.

So far it’s been a very busy new year, with boiler swaps, underfloor heating, servicing and the usual repairs and maintenance.

Above is one of the boiler swaps that we have been working on.

Long hours expected ahead with the heating season now upon us.

Long hours expected with the heating season upon us

12th November, 2018, Kristian Lay

Got a busy week coming up. The heating season is upon us so it will be long hours and a lot of productivity. We are changing 2 boilers and commissioning our job in Beccles.

300 metres of copper pipework and not a single leek.

Not a single leek

12th November, 2018, Kristian Lay

As well as servicing and Breakdowns, we continued with the ongoing project in Beccles which will be quite something when finished. I will post some photos when completed as we really have gone the extra mile to get the pipework spot on. We fitted the best part of 300m of pipework feeding 22 radiators. When tested not a single leak – even with our high success rate with copper joints, this was unexpected.
