I currently have a dual fuel towel rail, which has corroded through at the base. I'd like it replaced with a towel rail that runs off central heating only.
Ben is very pleasant and helpful. Very professional and seems really trustworthy.
Did a very good job of fitting heated towel rail in bathroom (though could have cleared up better afterwards and filled in the holes from the old radiator)James
I have a radiator which needs bleeding. The key is meant to be the one that fits, but slips when I try to turn it. Pliers have also been unsuccessful. I'm not sure about the model of radiator, but it's been at least 9 years since it's last been bled.
Thistleheat were quick to contact me and turned up on the same day I posted my job. Fixed the problem quickly and efficiently. My only issue would be that I had to ask for a quote (there was an assumption that he would do the job even though I didn't know if I could afford it at that point). Ian Parker gave good advice though and I would recommend him.Christy
I have gas/water underfloor heating that does not work to capacity in this cold weather. The Vaillant Boiler works well, providing more than adequate general hot water to the flat. It is only on the floor heating side that it Is not operating adequately but the main living room and kitchen area is always at best cool although set to the maximum. This may be the result of unbalanced settings since I have never been given a proper working understanding of the system but until now it has always worked adequately. I urgently need reliable and impartial advice on what to do . I am nearly 90 and living alone, but am, thankfully, in full possession of my faculties.
The only one who responded. Very friendly manner. Was not rushed and explained in good detail what I needed to know to operate my system . Problem resolved. I shall use Taylormade whenever I have boiler and heating problems in future.Ronald
Blockage in bath, water not draining away. Bath is cast iron, early 1900s. I have removed the side panel; the u-bend is an old-style metal unit, so too difficult for me to remove and inspect for blockage. I have tried using an off-the-shelf drain gel solution but it hasn't worked. Have also used a domestic plunger to no avail. I have students in the property; they are model tenants so I would like to have this looked at pretty swiftly. One of the students plays football and often comes home caked in mud - one theory is that silt has accumulated in the u-bend, which would explain the discoloured water present when using the plunger. Could the debris be flushed out with a high pressure hose?
A simple blocked pipe turned out to be a nightmare of a job. Derek had to work on the problem for most of the day. He tried everything possible apart from removing the bath. In the end his perseverance won out and I know have 4 very happy tenants who are free to bath/shower to their hearts content.Rita
Toilet seat to be screwed onto toilet bowl. Bolts and seat have been purchased but I am unable to screw in bolts as back of toilet is apparently inaccessible without removing some of the parts of the toilet.
Contacted me same day I posted the job and fixed it the next day at the agreed price. Work appears to be of high quality. Derek seems to be a safe pair of hands.Duncan
Currently I'm looking for a new boiler to be fitted and new pipes run, the floor is up in the kitchen so access is easy. I'm switching from a gravity fed system to a combi boiler so there's also a water tank to remove from the bathroom. I'm looking to make use of the boiler scrapple scheme.
Jacksons plumbing carried out the work required to an exacting standard. I would highly recommend their service. The task was completed on time with minimum disruption. I will be using them again for additional work in my property. Ryan
Section of a cast iron soil pipe needs to be replaced in a tenement. Damaged section is on second floor with one flat above me.
I was really impressed by this company. They took on a difficult job to replace a section of a leaking internal soil stack with minimum off fuss, and did so at very short notice (and for a great price!). Would definitely use them again. Emma
I need some help in connecting the fixtures of a new kitchen that has just been fitted, with the existing pipework (both water and gas if possible).
Low water pressure on mains pipes in my flat only; causing shower not to function, very little water pressure on cold tap in kitchen, long refill times on water tanks in hallway. It may possibly be a blockage or something to do with the stopcock, but I'd rather not make the problem worse by tring to fix it myself ... stopcock will not turn by hand and is awkwardly placed. Could be a small job if I'm right.

I have had water coming in from above and down the side of my window frame in my kitchen window. I think there must be an internal pipe which is building up with water, particularly in heavy build up of rain. I noticed today that the exposed plaster work under my window has a mushroom growing from it!!! Please help!
