“I recently called upon the services of MyPlumber.ie to install and fit a new washing machine. I called Eugene on Wednesday morning to say it was on the way and like clock-work himself and another lad arrived within a few minutes of the delivery to install it. They came back the following morning to fix a couple of other bits they had noticed just to make sure I wouldn’t have any issues with taps and drains in the future. Absolutely top-notch service, so quick and efficient and what I liked most is the lads gave the washing machine a good clean before leaving to save me a job… Highly recommend Eugene and the lads from MyPlumber.ie and will be using them again in future!” -Susan Humphreys

How to Choose the Right Plumber
To better select the right plumber, you can follow the tips we’ve got for you below:
1. Emergency service
While nobody wants to be disturbed by a plumbing or heating issue in the middle of the night, such instances can’t be helped sometimes.
Hence, it’s always a good idea to check with your plumber if they provide service during out-of-office hours. This will ensure you can rely on the same people to maintain and fix your plumbing systems at all times.
Of course, the quality of the service a plumber provides should be on top of your list. While this may be difficult to gauge at first, you can check if a certain plumber is accredited with a respected body or organisation for tradesmen.
Another way to check this is through online reviews as well as referrals from friends and family.
Make sure to confirm with your prospective plumber if they offer warranties for the work. This will ensure you get your money’s worth out of their service.
4. Relevant experience
Another factor to consider is a plumber’s expertise in a particular sector. For instance, if you’re a business owner, make sure the plumber you’re hiring has experience with commercial establishments.
