Pipe Us Aboard

We had a call from the Tooting & Balham branch of the Sea Cadets. They had a leak on their gas supply and couldn’t operate without hot water and heating. Within just a few days the job was surveyed, quoted and completed. 

The position of the leak was identified and following a gas calculation we noted that as they had a newer boiler we could reduce the old 2” gas supply pipe size to better suit the current installation of equipment and ensuring a cost saving on usage.

As you can see, the old 2″ pipework was replaced and the new 35mm copper pipework installed. We re-routed the pipes from the floor to the much safer higher level. Now everyone at the Sea Cadets can continue on their adventures, safe and warm. 

The Tooting & Balham branch of the Sea Cadets are currently recruiting new members as we all come out of lockdown. With activities for cadets from sailing, windsurfing and powerboating to rock-climbing, camping, and music – plus, much much more.

Offering skills and qualifications that you can take with you throughout your life. The Sea Cadets create a safe, engaging and fun learning environment, with memories and friendships that will last a lifetime.

You can contact them at or follow them on Facebook at @tootingseacadets.

CFS are proud to help the Sea Cadets and all the great work they do.
