Replacing a water main

We were called out to a home in the West End of Glasgow because the resident had started to hear a hissing sound in their house but could not find the source of the noise or of any obvious signs of water leaking in the house.
They called Scottish Water who checked their side but could not source anything unusual. However the West End Resident was not convinced to their response and looked for a professional plumber in Glasgow.

And that led them to JSL Plumbing.

We agreed a time to visit the customers home before conducting a full survey using some of our advanced plumbing inspection tools (including thermal imaging camera). We found an issue with the water main pipe that led into the house but to access it, we had to dig.

Now this was no bucket and spade operation – we had to bring in a CAT digger.


We used this to excavate the ground to access the water pipe and replaced it – job done and problem solved.

It is another example of why JSL Plumbing is not just another Glasgow Plumber. We are a fully qualified, trained and certified plumbing company with a team of professional plumbers on call to fix every and all plumbing problems.

So whether you have a leaking tap or a leaking pipe – call JSL Plumbing today.

  • 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.
