A home DIY job made the situation worse

We received a panicked call from a customer in Milngavie in the North of Glasgow because the tap in their bathroom would not turn off and seriously hot water was gushing out at a fair pace.

It transpired that the husband had tried to do a DIY job on the hot tap in the bathroom but had mistakenly made the situation worse.  So when his wife went to wash her hands, the hot tap knob turned on full blast and subsequently fell off.

They called us because we are one of Glasgow’s leading plumbers and we get the job done.  We turned up at the property, ensured that the hot tap water supply was off and then got to replacing the broken tap.

It was a simply job with a simple fix.  While we were there, we completed a few other odd plumbing jobs for the customer.


Not every plumbing job is an emergency but it can be pretty scary when water starts pouring out a tap with no obvious way of stopping it.

One bit of advise we always give our customers is to save our number on your phone.  JSL Plumbing is just one part of the three divisions that make up JSL.  There is JSL Plumbing, JSL Drainage and JSL Heating.


We all run with the same drive to offer an honest job at a fair price.  Our reputation and recommendations speak for themselves which is how we have grown from a simple ‘man with a van’ plumber in Milngavie to become one of Glasgow’s top plumbers.  And because we can offer drainage and heating as well, we can offer our customers a complete service.


So if you ever have a broken tap issue and you need a good plumber that has been recommended, then call on JSL Plumbing.  Call 0141 406 1658

  • 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.
