Plumbing – Regency Place

Stop Cock

Each property is fitted with a stopcock to fully isolate the water supply to each individual property. These are located outside of the front door to each property within the corridor just above the ceiling void. They are located here for the ease of being able to isolate the water supply to a property in the event that the occupier isn’t available at the time of an emergency.

Isolation Valves

Each plumbed in fixture and fitting pipework within the property is fitted with isolation valves, meaning that you can isolate the water supply to any fitting rather than turning the water off to the whole of your property via the stopcock. The isolation valves can be found for the supplies to the toilet, washbasin, kitchen sink, washing machine and dishwasher.

There is also an isolation valve within the storage cupboard of each property which isolates the water to the whole property when turned to the off position.

Please see the below video and guidance on how to isolate the water supply to a fitting within your property.

Waste Plumbing

Waste water from your kitchen and bathroom runs through the pipework directly into the drainage system. You are responsible for the maintenance of all the fittings and waste pipes within your property.

If you find that a washbasin, sink, bath or shower is taking longer than normal to drain, then you can use a chemical drain cleaner which is readily available from all good DIY stores. Alternatively, please seek professional advice. You can prevent your sinks and plug holes from becoming blocked by regularly cleaning them.

Please refrain from putting food waste, oils or any fats into sinks, as this may cause blockages. Do not dispose of anything other than toilet tissue in the toilets. Items such as nappies, wipes and sanitary items should not be disposed of down the toilet as the system is not designed to deal with such items. Flushing items such as these may result in an expensive blockage for which you would be liable.

Post Box – Regency Place

Post boxes for all of the properties are located within the main entrance reception area in the post room.

If you require a replacement post box key, then you will need to contact the Managing Agent, Centrick Property to place an order for a replacement. Replacement post box keys are chargeable by the Managing Agent, Centrick Property and you are responsible for paying the additional cost incurred.
