Great overall service. Efficient arrival and technician worked very cleanly. No mess to worry about afterwards. Outlined what the problem was in simple terms and then presented the options, including prices. No pressure to commit. Would recommend to anyone seeking a plumber.

They signed up my pensioner Parents offering heavily discounted rates. Did not provide a written quote and the work they charged $850.00 for I had quoted by at least 2 other plumbers for under $600.00. totally overpriced considering this was supposed to be a heavily discounted rate. Advise you look elsewhere and save money.

change of light fittings
3 years ago
I asked them to replace two simple light fittings, both of which I had already purchased. He also hard wired a smoke alarm, and spent most of the time trying to upsell other things to my wife, total cost almost $900.00. DO NOT USE THESE PEOPLE, they are ridiculously overpriced!

review on Plumbing & Electrical Doctor

Hi Plumbing & Electrical Doctor,
I have taken your service to fix my hot water tank. The guy gave me a number of options also different prices for member or non-member. After looking through the options, I have decided to replace my hot water tank. My decision was based on the different options of fixing it versus replacing it. After the completion of the job, I just realise that all options are actually overprice. I ended up replacing my hot water tank and paid over $2000 which I found out it is over price by about $1000 . After the old one has been removed and the new one put in, I found out the new tank does not have the same brand as my original one. When I asked, the guy said it is because my original one is more expensive so it is replaced with a cheaper brand.
There are many issues with the service. Firstly, all options given are overly priced. I am sure I can get a lot cheaper service somewhere else I have read reviews from people and companies who replace and install. Secondly, my original tank was replaced with cheaper tank. Thirdly, I had to clean water everywhere many times because the guy kept disappearing from the job. I counted I think he disappeared from the job about more than 6 times and didn't come back for a very long time (in general about 15 to 20 mins). He said it will take 2 to 3 hours but it ended up taking about 4 and half hours.
Sad to say but I don't think I will recommend your service to anyone. Until now, I still regret of replacing my hot water tank. I have checked and found out that nobody charged over $2000 for basic hot water tank. Now, I have replaced my original tank with cheaper tank. My original one is still in a good condition (no rust because it is indoor and has kept in well condition) and to fix it probably only cost about one tenth of replacing it. But the price given to fix it also overprice which comes to over $1000 if I want to fix it. I really regret to go ahead with the service. It is mostly unnecessary cost and the most expensive cost that I have ever paid. I have several properties but I never pay this kind of price anywhere to fix any maintenance issue. I thought it is an urgent work that needs to be done and I don't have time or many options. But I just realised all options given are overprice. Now, sometimes the hot water doesn't come out of the tap straight away and sometimes only air comes out with sudden water.

Don't use! Way overpriced by $600-$800 compared to 3 other quotes and they will try and sign you up to their "discount program", add another couple hundred dollars!!
