Leak Detection customers

The Plumbers Jhb’s leak detection team arrived at my house in a timely manner. I had a leaking pipe in my apartment, and it was not the first time it has happened so I knew it was time to call in the professionals as no over the counter solution had a long-lasting effect. The guys arrived with all the necessary tools and equipment to get the job done. The guys spent a good 45 minutes or so trying to fix the leak, they eventually got it right with their nitrogen gas. They pulled out all stops in order to get my leak fixed. I was very impressed with the service received from them. I needed a hole plugged. 😉

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 leak detection 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 touch up my roof.

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 overflow pipe had a leak and would need to be repaired. Unfortunately, they said that there might be some damage to the property as they had to break into one part of my wall but assured me there would be no permanent damage. I proceeded to give them my blessing to start, it took the team 4 hours to find and fix the leak, 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 patched up the wall to good as new when they were finished.
