A radiator fell off the wall

You would be surprised how often it happens.  Radiators falling off of the wall.  Especially if you have children running around like Bulls in a China shop.


And that is exactly what one of our latest call outs this week has been for.  We were called out to Rutherglen in the Southside of Glasgow because a customers radiator had fallen off of the wall.

Whilst many radiators have floor support mounts, a lot of modern radiators are held onto the wall with bolts.  However modern homes walls are not overly supportive so sometimes all it takes is a 5 year old cycling in the house (even when they have been told not too) and a ‘light bump’ from the front wheel.

We remounted the radiator onto the wall using heavy duty fixings to ensure that the radiator can take more of a hit next time.  We then ensured that the radiator pipes had not been damaged and then we ensured that the radiators were all bled and checked the boiler pressure (better safe than sorry).

  • 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.
