Fixing another plumbers poor service

Fixing another plumbers poor service

Plumbing may not be as exciting and glamorous as other services out there but it is essential to your homes water supply, heating and toilet flushing.

But for such an essential service that we all need at some point, there are sadly some plumbers in Glasgow who either do things at a lower quality or simply don’t have the skill to do the job properly.

You would be amazed at how many times we are called up by customers in the West End who have used another plumber and been dramatically let down.

And that is exactly what has happened last week.

It may not be an exciting picture but if you look at the white circle in the middle of the drain pipe, you will see that it is a large ball of silicone. What can only be described as a complete idiot of a plumber decided that rather than remove the opening in the pipe and fix it, they simply gummed it up with silicone. This was behind a kitchen cabinet and had been leaking for ages.

Poor quality plumbers may save you a few quid in the short term but will always cost you more in the long run.

The pipe in the picture was spotted by the home owner because the leak had caused permanent water damage and warping to their wooden kitchen cabinets.

We found it and fixed it properly. Because as a local drainage company, we have built our reputation on trust, quality and fairness.

  • 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.
