Shower cartridge that controls temperature broken

A morning shower is to some an essential way to start the day effectively. But what if your shower doesn’t work? What if one day that essential shower produces nothing but ice cold water?
That is exactly what has just happened to one of our customers.
We first did work for them over four years ago when their toilet broke after a house party had become a bit too rowdy. And ever since then they have called us for any small issue that they have had from a blocked drain to replacing the silicone sealant around the bath.

So when they called us in the morning on their way to work with this new issue, we were able to discuss the issue, highlight the probable cause and then agree a time for that evening to come round to the house and have a look.
It ended up being a cartridge that controls the temperature of the shower. It had broken and was now only producing cold water (not ideal regardless of what time of the year it is). We got the issue fixed that very evening and our customer was happily able to continue their essential morning routine of waking up and having a nice hot shower again.

It is these kind of issues that mark out why we at JSL Plumbing are different from other plumbing firms. We continually offer a service that sees our customers come back to us again and again because they know they can trust us to do the job properly. And our flexibility in being able to come to our customers at times of the day that suit them – it is a win win for everyone.

  • 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.
