Looking for a plumber in London (or anywhere else here in the UK for that matter) often means that you’ve got a plumbing or heating emergency.

The natural reaction of many people is to grab the Yellow Pages or the local telephone directory, and pick out the first name they come across in their area. Unfortunately, this can land you in even more hot water (if you’ve got hot water of course!). Sorry, now may not be the time to joke.

Avoiding hiring a rogue plumber in London

When you’re looking for a supplier of anything, whether it’s a product or a service, it’s always best to have a recommendation. The same goes for a plumber in London. There are literally hundreds of plumbers listed in the various directories, but the fact of the matter is that some of them are rogue traders. Employ one of these and you could be regretting it forever.

Getting a recommendation for a top plumber in London

The first port of call for many people is to ask neighbours, friends and family for a recommendation. However, if you don’t have anyone in your area that you can ask, or who is able to recommend a top plumber in London, there are other means.

Most local authorities operate a list of approved traders. This is usually a reliable way of finding a plumber in London that you can trust to do a good job.

Not all local authorities have approved lists, so another very good way of locating a top plumber in London is to look on the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors’ (APHC) website. We here at CW Services Plumbing and Heating are APHC qualified and are proud to be one of their recommended traders.

Select and compare

In order to get a top plumber in London however, even when you are using some sort of approved list, like a local authority list, or the APHC list, don’t just choose the first name that you come across. Select at least two. That way you can compare the quotes.
