  • Glugging pipework - drain waste vent issue?

    James gave us a very thorough assessment of an issue with our pipework and was a pleasure to deal with - highly recommended

  • Bathroom Fitting (Got materials)

    What a lovely man! Was in a mess as previous plumber didn't complete work so James came to the rescue to clear up someone else's work! He responded straight away, despite it only being a few hours of work. Most people wouldn't have come out to finish it off as they were small, fiddly jobs (fitting vanity sink, flippers and thermostat). He phoned and came when he said he would. He worked very quickly and was communicative. He ensured work was completed to a high standard before leaving. He was clean and tidy. He's the only one that would finish a job started in May so it's been stressful with a newborn in the middle of it. He even helped to find an electrician too! I would highly recommend James as he reduced stress, supplied parts, was efficient and I felt comfortable having him in our home. Very friendly and trustworthy. He knows his stuff. Can't thank him enough for taking the time to complete our long awaited bathroom!

  • Fix toilet

    Stopped the leak but did not secure toilet.

    Vortex transport and plumbing solutions's reply:

    The job was completed as requested. I explained to the customer that i could not fix the toilet to the floor as the toilet had not been installed correctly by himself and that he would firstly need to attach the cistern to the wall as there was a 150mm gap behind it, i did however mark the floor with a marxman dot so that he knew where to put the holes, i also removed the broken tile out of the floor and cut out the old grid, i then helped the customer find the correct grid aswell as provide him with numbers for tilers in the area, many thanks for your custom but sometimes not everyone can be pleased.

    I would highly recommend James he is a very nice caring sensitive man and if there are any disabled vulnerable people looking for a plumber this is your man. I cannot praise him enough.

  • Leaking pipework

    I cannot believe how quick and efficient James came out to look at my leak. My insurance company required a company with trace and access equipment which he had. He located the leak and fixed it straight away. James has quoted for the completion of works for new shower and panels which is at a very competitive rate and will be starting the job as soon as the materials have been delivered. I would highly recommend him.

    James drew the short straw and won the contract to repair our prehistoric toilet. as usual with these old contraptions you replace one part and another plays up. james dealt with this over two visits and the loo is now performing wonderfully.

It was very nice to meet somebody who was interesting and determined to do the job professionaly - a pleasure to have in the house

    I was very happy with the work James completed for me. He was professional, polite and he explained everything he was doing. He kindly waited In his van whilst my husband went and got some parts that were needed. He could have just gone away and come back but he didn’t.
    I have booked James in again to do more work and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

  • Shower and tap

    Couldn’t do enough for me, will be coming back for a couple of other jobs I need doing. Very happy customer.

  • Outside pipes need replacing

    The job was booked in for Monday with a £10 part and £80 labour witch I thought was quiet steep for a simple hour job but as its one of my rental properties and my tenants are fantastic I went ahead. Recieved a text 10pm Sunday night requesting the full payment up front as " he does not know me". Never in my 15 years of being a landlord of numerous properties have I been asked to pay for the job up front. And never would I pay for work before it's completed so can only assume its a scam. Please be very careful when using this person

    Vortex transport and plumbing solutions's reply:

    Customer wanted me to complete work, and payment after via transfer, i dont know her, i asked for payment on completion and was told no, to many people ripping traders off out there, her account name isnt even the corret name her review sould be removed!
