    These guys are great and their service is outstanding. My hot water failed and the next day I rang at 8.45am to see if they could help and they had a new system in stock and the same day they came out at 1.00pm and had it working at 2.30pm with a complete upgrade with new valves and pipework and they even put a drain in for the overflow. Josh and Shane who came out were not only friendly and helpful but are super professionals and know exactly what to do and I can't recommend these people highly enough. The price they quoted me was not only competitive but the work was outstanding. 5 plus!
