  1. Hi All, I am new here and looking to draw on your wealth of knowledge. I bought a shower from Victorian Plumbing around 6 months ago that was not fitted until around 8 weeks ago, on having the shower fitted my plumber informed me that although following the instructions to the letter the shower pressure was rubbish despite it being great without the shower attached and the water was not heating up. I complained to VP and they eventually replaced the unit but only after around 6 weeks of too and fro'ing with the manufacturer and not getting anywhere. The problem I have now i
  2. It's me again! Two months ago, we ordered a bath unit (the sink, cabinets and marble top) from Victorian Plumbing. They delivered on time but one of the units was defective. After the silly song and dance with a customer service clown, they sent a replacement unit, at a great delay. We had to send our plumber home after paying him. The replacement unit was also defective... At this point, we are about a month without a bathroom. Lucky the old toilet dish is giving us some graceful end-of-life... They now delivered another unit, which wasn't defective - but it's the wrong
  3. Hi, Life is full of issues and only this forum eases the pain:) Here's my problem: Back at the end of December 2012, i had a pipe burst in the bathroom, at which i called the Able Group emergency number and booked a plumber to come and fix the burst pipe. The plumber arrived within 2 hrs, saw to the problem, replaced a plastic fitting, paid him £150 through credit card. Everything was fine up to today when the same problem happened again. Switched off the mains water supply and on closer look the same fitting as per plumber failed. So rang Able Group, spoke to a customer se
  4. The Able Group - Unable to fix anything & unable to refund... I need to vent a bit about this emergency call out plumbing service. I booked them to investigate hot water flushing back into a cold water storage tank. They sent an obviously unexperienced plumber, who ignored the requested job, & fitted a ball cock instead. The tank flooded again. They sent another plumber who turned down a thermostat, & ignored the original job. The tank flooded again. They billed more than was agreed to my credit card. They refused to refund & I'm having to request money bac
  5. I had a problem with my water cylinder. A friendly plumber said that the water cylinder was faulty which is under 25 years warranty. Manufacturer said that it can't be the cylinder and suggested I call professional or pay them £99.99 call out charge. At the same time I had my boiler serviced so I asked the guy that came, to take a look at the cylinder. His diagnose was that it is the expansion vessel. £112 to replace. Well... tough luck I thought and asked him to do the job. They turn up this morning with the new vessel and replaced it. I though all should be OK now, but NO DIFFERE
  6. Hi Everyone, This is my first post, so i hope i have put this in the right place. I am hoping for some information on claiming costs and compensation back from Barclays / insurance Just to summerize.... I have boiler insurance through an additions active account. my boiler started leaking on the 16th of December while i was in hospital for a bad back, i phoned the home SOS number and they sent someone the next day. He arrived and said he would have to order parts but we could still use the boiler if we kept re-pressurizing it when it cut out which is what we had b
