This is the second time we've used Richard and again, the service was excellent. He is quick, efficient, made great recommendations and tidied up. We now have a great in-tap water filter system that doesn't take up much space and a sleek modern looking tap. Thanks again for a great job Richard.

We called on Rich to locate a leaking pipe underneath a concrete house slab. Using his thermal and audio detection equipment, he was able to locate the leak in the middle of the house to within 50mm and then expose the corroded pipe and repair with a minimum of damage to the floor. We were impressed with Rich's methodical approach in locating the leak which definitely saved time and unnecessary repairs.

Top notch service and advice from Richard, who clearly takes great pride in his work. He serviced my toilet and replaced my hot water system. For each job, he made it clear what needed to be done and what my options were, and then set about getting things done without fuss. I can't recommend Plumbdog highly enough!
