The guy who did such a good job on our new kitchen worktops, recommended a friend of his for another job we wanted to do. Our radiator system in this flat isn’t all that new, although it works fine. However, it doesn’t have thermostatic valves … so when we want to warm up the living room – the coldest room in the house in winter – we have had to put the heating on throughout the flat. Which we don’t want.
We met Marc and he said ‘half a day’s work. I’ll need to do a drain down and a flush out and I’ll add an inhibitor which will stop corrosion.’ His quote was good. Very good!
He arrived at midday when he said he would. He brought his daughter who is his apprentice at present. He immediately set to work and now all necessary radiators have valves, the system is flushed out, it wasn’t too dirty at all which is GOOD news because it means the system isn’t beginning to break down … he added the inhibitor, explaining everything to his daughter and getting her to help. He didn’t stop although I made him a coupla cups of tea.
All done and dusted by 4pm. He checked there were no leaks, bled all the radiators, turned the system on to check everything was working … and off they went with a cheery wave.
Why aren’t all workmen like this???
