A burst pipe and water pooling

Fixing a burst pipe and water pooling in a driveway

Pipes do not wait to burst at your convenience.  They happen whenever they feel like it.  So for one of our customers in Scotstoun in the West End of Glasgow, it came as quite a shock when they came downstairs in the morning to find water pooling in their garden.

What had happened, why had it happened and what could they do to stop it?  Those were the questions that ran through the customers mind.  But the first sensible thing they did was call JSL Plumbing.


They have used us before when we fixed a leaking kitchen tap and were impressed at our attitude, pricing and timekeeping.  All things that we have kept up and more often than not – exceeded since our paths last crossed.

So they called our friendly team, notified them that this was indeed a plumbing emergency and our of our trained and qualified plumbers was dispatched ASAP.


We inspected the problem, confirmed what the cause was and made sure we got approval from the customer to proceed based on the cost we provided (which as always was fair).

The problem was a worn out copper pipe.  It happens from time to time.  Older copper pipes can eventually fail through simple corrosion.  And that is what happened here.


So our team had to dip up the burst pipe to replace it.  We of course checked over the system to make sure that there were no other leaks and then went on our way to the next plumbing emergency in and around Glasgow.

  • Quick resolution of problem and good communication.
  • Very friendly throughout the process. Clear information given and very thorough. I will be using them again!
  • JSL Plumbing & Heating replaced a kitchen and a bathroom tap and fixed a toilet where the cistern was leaking into the bowl. He was personable and professional, and provided advice on which replacement taps we might want to get for the bathroom. He provided updates on his progress throughout, and the pricing was reasonable. We have used JSL before and would happily do so again. Have also recommended this company to others.
  • Job completed to our satisfaction. Bathroom and en-suite left tidy and work completed in the timescale agreed and charged as per the quote. Good quality fittings used. Would certainly use JSL Plumbing Services again in future.
  • Jim assessed the leak, which required repair and offered an honest appraisal. He was on time, polite and carried out the work as planned. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and would use for a larger installation in the future.
  • Had a bent radiator pipe I needed replacing and as I'd already called them out thought I'd get some bath taps fitted. I'd been putting the job off as it was in a really awkward tight place and knew it wouldn't be pleasant. The plumber was happy to help and it didn't cost me as much as I expected for the time and fiddly nature of the job.
  • Very good service with work done quickly after contacting company.
