Leak repair Blackburn

A customer from Blackburn anxiously called the Doherty Plumbing Solutions office recently, reporting a potential water leak near their water meter. They had also noticed higher water bills than usual, and there was pooling of water near the meter.

After COVID screening, George from our plumbing team was promptly at their property, and investigated the issue. It appeared the plastic pressure reducer on the water meter had been accidentally knocked during garden work.

George exposed the meter assembly and found the tail connection was leaking. He replaced the water meter washer, and removed the damaged section of the copper piping. A new copper section was fitted and secured with B-press tool.

After doing a water test, George found there was no more leakage around the meter. He backfilled and reinstated the ground cover and cleaned up the work area.

The customer was extremely satisfied with the quick support we had provided, and very kindly left a positive review on our Google page, noting George’s efficient assistance.

    We had a leak in our Hot Water Service. James diagnosed the most likely cause over the phone. They came and repaired the problem that day. Tim was prompt and polite and the issue was fixed.

    Call Doherty Plumbing after our hot water service stopped working. Arrived within specified timeframe and in the same day. Contacted us to let us know they were on the way. Fixed this issue on good time and clearly explained what was done. Excellent service from start to finish. Felt very comfortable with them. Well done. Highly recommend.
