“I needed my boiler fixed & a wireless thermostat to be installed. James promptly got in touch & I was very pleased with the professional, hassle free work done for a reasonable price. I would not hesitate to use him again. ”

“Reliable service at affordable prices. Excellent service”

“I inherited a mascerator pump in my second bathroom when I moved house which I hated. The toilet blocked regularly and we had floods. I consulted a few 'experts' to come up with a solution to no avail however Jay came up with a great solution and a reasonable price to do it. No more floods and grinding noisy flushings. He has subsequently installed new radiators for me also and worked on my boiler and I highly recommend him as not only a very nice guy, reliable and friendly, but also an extremely competent plumber.”

“Jay has been a massive help with our refurb which isn't a simple project. He is patient and always takes the time to explain why he recommends doing things a certain way and presents options where necessary. The project isn't finished yet but so far he has moved a boiler and flue and installed pipework for a new kitchen, including difficult removal of old cold water tanks. The work looks very neat and tidy. Jay also responded rapidly when we had a gas leak from old pipework, to test this. Highly recommended and look forward to the next part of the project!”

“I called James when four plumbers had already been unable to fix our mysterious lack of hot water. After about 20 minutes James had located and fixed the problem. I was elated! James is prompt, professional, reasonable and friendly. Highly recommended plumber. ”

Location: Ealing Date: 2017-07-07

“James was incredibly friendly, capable and efficient. When we sprung a leak in our attic over the long Easter weekend, he even left his family for a couple of hours to pay a visit and fix our leak, which was invaluable to preventing further water damage to our ceiling. We really appreciated this dedication over the holiday weekend and will definitely hire James again. ”
