Latest Reviews and Feedback
I initially contacted Alan to replace an existing water softener that had reached it's end of life. From the outset, he provided clear advice that helped me choose which type of softener to go for, and he was always very responsive to additional questions that came up, even over email. After fitting the softener, Alan made sure it was running well and helped to troubleshoot a concern over more regular regeneration than expected, all included as part of the initial installation fee. In addition to the softener, we also used Alan to help resolve some air locking issues with our hot water system, which upon investigation were caused by some dubious plumbing choices contracted by a previous owner. Alan was able to resolve these issue by correcting the work, and explained clearly what was causing the problem and why. Overall, we've been really happy with the work provided and would not hesitate to use him again, or recommend to others.
We have just used Alan for fitting a shower tray and fixing the shower itself, while we had other work done. He was brought in by the builder, and we have been delighted with the work he has done. There were a number of options for us and he explained clearly and advised on the options. I am very happy with the finish and quality of work, and am looking forward to a nice shower again tonight. Alan was also very happy to help answer some other questions I had. I would definitely recommend Alan and am keeping his number for the future.
We have used Alan Myers of A F Myers Plumbing for many years for a range of work; replacing a hot water cylinder, fitting new radiator, fitting new outside taps and various other jobs. We are currently discussing with Alan regarding installation of a water softener system.
Alan is reliable, considerate, fast and the quality of his work is high. We live in a period, listed building and he is able to take that into account in carrying out his work. We would highly recommend him.
Alan Myers has done a few plumbing jobs for us and we will certainly keep on using him should any further work need doing. Alan is not only reliable but extremely knowledgeable about all thing plumbing and now water softeners. His last job for us was to install a power shower in our bathroom that required a hot water feed to be put in. The job was completed in a few hours and we were really pleased with the results and the cost. Alan is happy to "just get on with the job" but is always willing to chat, if you want, or explain what and why he is doing something. He is also very tidy and will make good any holes he needs to make as well as clearing up when he is finished. We highly recommend him.
We have known and employed Alan now for perhaps more than 20 years.
In that time he has taken care of all of our plumbing issues (new bathrooms, shower fittings, toilets, taps replacement, dripping taps, central heating system, tank and radiator replacements and/or exchanges, some tiling requirements, etc.) and we have always found the standard of his work and his professionalism to be first class.
Alan is generally very good at attending at the first available opportunity when there is an urgent problem. He is regularly on time but should he become caught up with another job and be running late, he will always contact us by mobile phone and let us know.
I am very much a layman when it comes to plumbing and so I always rely on Alan for the best advice. He will tell me what is possible, what is worth doing, what is not, how much it is all likely to cost and he always makes every effort to save us unnecessary expenditure. Alan will tell you how it is and he never creates extra work for the sake of it.
Many years ago, when we were faced with a problem, he asked me what I wanted to do, so I said to him......."Just imagine it was yours - what would you do, which decision would you take, which route would you follow.......? Please just do that." This is the policy that he has regularly followed with us and I have to say I think it is the only way.
In short, Alan would gain my strongest recommendation.
Alan has carried out work in my home and has always been honest, quick to respond and has worked tidily to a high standard.
I also have property management clients who have been using Alan's services for a number of years and they have also only ever spoken highly of Alan's work.
I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other people.
If I need a plumber, I always contact Alan Myers who I know to be reliable and conscientious providing excellent work which is always completed to a high standard.
He has replaced a WC Grohe duo flush siphon unit, installed replacement mixer tap units, installed a replacement clamp bracket for a Mira shower hose, replaced seized water mains taps with easily operated lever valve taps and re-sealed a shower enclosure for us.
I could not rate Alan highly enough, any new trade always comes with a little bit of concern, with regards to quality of job, reliability and professionalism.
Alan delivers on all these areas, from taking his shoes off on entry to your home, he is an extremely genuine person who communicate s throughout the entire process and also provides a concise breakdown of his work.
Alan has completed investigation works for us when we had no water, has installed new shower pumps and also installed radiators for us.
Personally I enjoy Alan’s conversation from his travels around the world to his knowledge about our plumbing system which is a very old house.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Alan for his services and would not consider anyone else for plumbing works.
