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 theyíd 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 donít 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!

Canít recommend Gerry highly enough - heís 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.

Youíre 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.

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.

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.
