I noticed recently that the washbasin in the bathroom was leaking. It would be OK for a while, then a small trickle of water would emerge from round the back and create a puddle at the foot of the pedestal.
We asked our neighbour, who had put in the bathroom, to come and have a look. He tightened it up and it was OK for an hour … then started to leak again.
We don’t like relying too much on free service from a neighbour – can be tricky for relationships – so we contacted the local company who had previously sent someone to plumb in our washing machine.
He came, took it apart, showed us what he thought was the problem, sorted it out and went away.
It still leaked.
He came back, had another go, said that if it continued then it was probably because the plug hole was plastic rather than metal, and left.
And it leaked.
The third time he came back with his boss. The two of them took the whole thing apart, removing the pedestal altogether. This time they found what had not been visible before – a hairline fracture in the plastic collar-thing.
They replaced the unit with a metal one, and left.
And it doesn’t leak! :>>
We really like them. They are pleasant, professional, prompt, explain everything, and the previous bill for the washing machine had been very reasonable.
We waited for the bill for this time … 8|
It’s just come. They’ve billed us for one visit, plus parts.
It’s a pleasure to do business with people like these! So I heartily recommend
