  • Fitted new glow worm boiler


    Simon has fitted us a new Glow worm boiler and replaced some of our old pipe work. Simon was very professional and was able to advise us on which boiler would suit our family and home.

  • Shower pump fitting

    0Verified Review

    Fitted an immersion and shower pump. He blamed the pipework and refused to change the pump despite the pipework being unchanged for 22 years and having pumps fitted without issues by other plumbers on other occasions over those years. He still has the warranty for the pump so I'm left with a leaking pump and need to call another plumber in to fix his mess and pay again. Terrible.

  • Shower pump replacement and toilet repair

    10Verified Review

    I contacted Simon and he visited very promptly to quote for several plumbing jobs including fixing a toilet flush, changing a shower pump and quoting for more extensive work to replace a shower cubicle. Simon is very informative about what work is required. He kindly offered to do some of the work that day due to his schedule being flexible. He investigated the problems and sourced the supplies and as a result the toilet was fixed and the shower pump and shower attachments replaced perfectly. He also sourced samples for the quote. Very efficient, great standard of work and very trustworthy.

  • Very pleased with toilet repair

    10Verified Review

    On Saturday 1st July I contacted Simon and asked if he could carry out a non urgent plumbing repair to my upstairs toilet , which was leaking from the cistern into the toilet bowl , and also install a toilet isolation valve at the same time . Today , 4 July , Simon visited to have a look at the defective WC mechanism causing the leak , left to go and buy a replacement flush mechanism and returned forthwith to fit it and then swiftly installed the isolation valve . I was very pleased with his work , he was polite , friendly ,efficient , and tidy . And very reasonably priced . Thanks !

    Came to check out a small leak and fixed it then and there. I’ve used Simon many times, he’s courteous, efficient, responsive to questions, neat and tidy and gets things done. Highly recommend for all plumbing needs from fitting boilers to fixing small leaks.
