messageGerry the Plumber
Posted by maxijazz 17 October, 2019 23:22

I wanted to highly recommend a plumber, that I actually found through this forum, named Gerry (aka the big dog from Clogh!)

He was quick, efficient and very reasonably priced (I got several quotes in for this work. He managed to fix the leak on the day that he had only popped round to give a quote and then arranged for all the building repairs to be carried out by his builder friend Tony. Between them both I think most house disasters can be fixed.

He's definitely my go to plumber on speed dial now!

Gerry was very quick to get to us to look at our broken boiler (which appeared to keep breaking down even after it had been put back to life several times...) and would not stop until a complete fix had been identified! Even with a super troublesome boiler.

All other plumbers said theyd be out the afternoon of the following day - if that - whereas Gerry called me within minutes and came out to see me first thing. His communication was excellent throughout and pricing was very fair.

I would highly recommend him (and I dont often put recommendations on the forum...) Give him a go first! 07872 303925

Another recommendation for Gerry. We had a gas leak coming from our hob, and after the manufacturer's engineer came and told us it 'wasn't his job' to source the leak if it wasn't coming directly from the hob, I had to find someone urgently to come out.

Gerry came first thing in the morning and quickly sourced the leak and fixed it and now we have hot water and heat again! He was really friendly and explained things clearly, and is a lot more affordable than Pimlico Plumbers! Highly recommend him and will call him in a flash for any other plumbing/gas issues. 07872 303925

We would also recommend Gerry. He came on a Saturday morning and found the source of a leak under our sink (dishwasher drain hose) and fixed it same day. Since then he's also fixed a cistern for us, again coming out next day. Really nice guy and very reasonable prices. 07872303925

Waking up today to a very cold day we had the joys of a boiler that stopped working. Ringing around a lot of plumbers/gas engineers I was having no luck trying to find someone who could come out to look at it today. We have two kids so didn't love the idea of having no hot water or heating for too long.

I spoke to Gerry who was also on a job and would struggle to get to me today. However he so very kindly said he could try and talk me through a solution to the problem which he did. With Gerry as my right hand man over speaker phone I managed to get the front off the boiler and reset it. Much joy was had as it kicked into action!

Thanks so much Gerry for taking the time to help me. You are an absolute gentleman.

Also would like to recommend Gerry the plumber. I found his number on the forum and he came out this morning and fixed a troublesome leak coming from the toilet. He diagnosed the problem quickly and went out to get the part and fitted it. All done really efficiently and a very fair price too. Will definitely use him again. His number is 07872303925

Some more high praise for Gerry the plumber here. I searched the forum to find a plumber when my cistern stopped working. He called me straight back when I messaged him, and he was so helpful. He diagnosed the problem over the phone with the aid of a couple of photos, and he offered to come round first thing the next morning to fix it. Fantastic service!

Cant recommend Gerry highly enough - hes very responsive and came round the same day I had a boiler emergency! He installed a new boiler very quickly, and was friendly and reassuring throughout.

Youre in good hands with Gerry!

Another recommendation here for Gerry. Came out on a Saturday even though his son was unwell as our boiler had broken. Got it working and was exceptionally reasonable.

messageRe: Gerry the Plumber

Gerry came out at very short notice and fixed my boiler on a Saturday at 7am even when he had to take his son to football at 9. Very flexible and highly reliable. Would recommend.

Another recommendation for Gerry, our radiators had stopped working and thanks to him we are warm again! He was very quick to respond and super competent, and I would be super happy to give him a call for any other plumbing issues.

Don't make a habit of posting my experiences online (which is bad as I rely on recommendations all the time), however wanted to give a massive thumbs up to Gerry as well. Had an issue with a blocked kitchen sink, Gerry was prompt to reply, diagnose and solve the problem. Best bit is that he took the time to explain the issue and how to help avoid it in future.

messageRe: Gerry the Plumber
Posted by EPB February 14, 11:58AM

We had problems with a blocked sink, which Gerry realised had been incorrectly installed. He was able to modify the fittings with considerable ingenuity, at a very reasonable cost.

Another recommendation for Gerry. I had a burst pipe on Sunday evening, he FaceTimed me and helped solve the immediate drama. He then came first thing the following morning even though it was half-term and sorted it all out. Very reasonable and will definitely use again.

Adding another recommendation for Gerry. Quick to respond, fixed a tap that wouldn't shut off and offered plenty of help over the phone first.

Just wanted to add to the list of recommendations for Gerry.
He has come to help me now on two occasions.
First time was to reseal a leaky shower and sort out a leaky downstairs toilet. I thought he would just come to quote and then come back another time but he was able to crack on with the jobs immediately and they were both done within an hour.
The second visit was this morning. I sent him a text message late last night because my shower wouldnt switch off even after Id turned off my stop tap. He rang me first thing this morning and came round within a few minutes on his way to another job and sorted it out. He is very efficient and really competitively priced and a lovely man to boot.
Would thoroughly recommend

I read these recommendations for Gerry 1 hour ago, and in that time he arrived, fixed the problem and went on his way! Absolutely brilliant. All while doing some lovely whistling. Big fan of Gerry! 07872 303925

Another very positive recommendation for Gerry the plumber. We called him after hot water went and he came within 2 hours. He identified the issue, got the part and was back early the next morning. He diligently drained the boiler, identified a further issue, and fixed the entire boiler all for the initial quote cost, which was very reasonable. He seems like a lovely guy who is reliable and good value.

What a wonderful forum! I would like to add my thanks and recommendation for Gerry the plumber. I had a plumbing emergency yesterday evening and Gerry answered his phone at 9pm and provided reassurance and offered to come around the following morning. True to his word, Gerry came over and supplied and fitted the parts required to solve the problem. Very friendly and knowledgeable man. I would certainly use him again as his work is excellent and extremely good value. 07872 303925.

Hi everyone,
We also recently used Gerrys services and were really happy with his work. Very friendly and reliable, and our kitchen tap performs as it should be now. We can highly recommend him!

Gerry really helped us out yesterday with a blocked drain. We discussed working with the covid-19 constraints and he was able to do all the work at a safe distance without coming into the house. A huge relief. Will definitely use him again

Posted by Finderloo March 27, 09:20PM

Thanks everyone for the recommendations. Gerry helped us today, I'd spent most of the day trying to unblock the drain myself, failed and he fixed it really quickly. Very nice guy and taught me a few things in the process! Much appreciated.

Another recommendation for Gerry here. I had a slow draining shower and Gerry went above and beyond to help me and give me advice. After following his advice, I managed to solve the issue without Gerry having to come out at all. Will definitely call him again when I need a plumber.

Posted by wobble May 17, 03:57PM

Im not one who usually gives feedback but felt it only fair to provide a very positive recommendation for Gerry. Same day service which was on a Sunday. Gerry is an extremely knowledgable, efficient, and friendly guy who phoned, arrived and sorted a series of blocked shower, bath and kitchen sink drains within the hour, and very fairly priced too. I just wished Id called Gerry earlier rather than spending hours myself and spending money on litres upon litres of Mr. Muscle drain unblocker. Plumbing issues are best left to the professionals like Gerry. Will definitely be calling him for any future requirements.
GERRY 078 7230 3925.

We had no hot water last week and Gerry was amazing. He performed feats of contortion seldom seen outside the Moscow State Circus in order to repair our awkwardly positioned immersion heater. Responded fast, sorted out all the parts in record time and we had our hot water back so we could give our little boy a bath that evening.

This is the second time Gerry has saved the day for us, excellent work and great communication before and after. Could not ask for a better plumber.

You can contact Gerry on 07872303925. He is the best plumber in the world.

Phoned Gerry yesterday at about 3pm, had cistern that would not shut off the incoming water, not an emergency as the water overflow just ran into the pan.. Gerry agreed to call after 10am today, Saturday, he quickly diagnosed the problem and fitted a new ball valve, problem solved. Very nice guy, very helpful and all for a very fair price. Highly recommended.

Posted by MiniViking June 09, 12:18PM

Yet another very positive recommendation for Gerry. He came round promptly, figured out the problem and kept going with it until it was definitely solved. And an extremely personable guy too. Will call him out again in a flash if I have any other plumbing issues!

I messaged Gerry to see if he was available to look at a shower pump that was faulty. Called me within a few hours and booked me in. He arrived on time, replaced the pump and sorted out a few other issues. Very polite, tidy and charged a reasonable price. Gerry will be my go to plumber and would I be be happy to recommend him.
