burst geyser customers

The Plumbers Jhb’s geyser team arrived at my house very promptly, I had only phoned 30 minutes before. It was an emergency as my geyser had burst and I was trying to prevent as much damage as I could before they arrived. The team came well equipped and prepared. They helped me drain my pipes before removing my old geyser and replacing it with my own. They dealt with the insurance company and everything was sorted very quickly. Extremely happy with the service from Plumbers Jhb and will recommend them to all my friends.

I woke up one morning and could hear a strange dripping sound coming from downstairs, as I walked down I had a harsh smell of dampness hit me and as I investigated more I saw stains on my roof and quickly searched for an emergency burst geyser plumber and found Plumbers Jhb. They came out within an hour, were very courteous and professional, they solved the problem within an hour and even put me in touch with someone to help me vacuum and dry the water that had seeped into my walls and floors.

Definitely recommend these guys!

On Wednesday night I went down to the laundry room and noticed there was water running down my wall. I called out the Plumbers Jhb’s emergency team and they determined my geyser had a small burst and would need to be replaced. Unfortunately, they said that there might be some damage to the property as the geyser water had infiltrated my walls, roof and floors. I proceeded to give them my permission to replace the geyser, it took the team 3 hours to uninstall the old geyser and put the new one in, I was not expecting such a long service but I am very happy with how thorough they were in taking care of my property. I have never received such good service in my life and will definitely be recommending drain unblocking services from Plumbers Jhb. They even got someone to come out and help drain the water from my home!
