Latest Reviews and Feedback

I rang Harry at 9.15, he was round to us by 11.30 repaired a leaking pipe which was very loose under the kitchen sink. I also asked him to look at our toilet where the cistern didn’t finish running water. He was very obliging and solved the problem. We find Harry very efficient and helpful.

MB 09 23

I rang Harry at 9am and by 12.30 two taps and some under sink piping had been replaced and two different leaks fixed. Quick, efficient, friendly and reasonably priced service. Thoroughly recommend.

CM 06 23

Great service from Harry who came out very quickly in response to a water leak that appeared in our kitchen ceiling. It wasn't the easiest leak to identify but he found it in the end and sorted it out. We would definitely recommend. Thank you A1 Plumbing.


KT 06 23

It was a sort of emergency as the loo wasn't flushing. Harry arrived promptly at 9am and sorted the problem within the hour. He was extremely helpful and kind. Highly recommended.

Harry Brough from A1 Plumbing came to fix a dripping tap - not easy owing to the age of the tap. He is a great worker, very polite and friendly and did an excellent job. 

SC 06.23

I have just engaged the services of A1 Plumbing after finding them in your publication.

I cannot speak too highly of the service I received. They dealt with my leaking taps and sink the very same day.


They were courteous and extremely efficient; tidy and willing to go to great lengths to make sure the jobs were completed to my satisfaction.


It is a pleasure to recommend this outstanding business.

ML 02 23

MP 11 22

Excellent service to attend to a leaky water pipe joint within a couple of hours of contacting the company. Reasonable price charged and utmost care taken to make sure the job was completely sorted out. Highly recommended.

AH 11 22

On delivery of a replacement dishwasher (the original being 22 years old) the delivery men explained that they were unable to fit it as there appeared to be a leak with the pipe supplying the machine. This was very worrying as we were due to go away a couple of days later. Rang A1, the very pleasant lady who answered took the details and said Harry would ring back shortly. Received a call within ten minutes and he arrived at the house a few minutes later. He sorted the problem with the pipe, fitted the new machine and gave some valuable information regarding the stopcocks to the property. He is clearly very knowledgeable and experienced and resolved a real problem for us with courtesy and efficiency. The fee he charged was very reasonable compared to the usual call out fees charged by some emergency plumbers. We would strongly recommend him and will be taking his advice. Thank you Harry.

MS 10 22

We have just had the plumbing service of  A1 Plumbing.  We wholeheartedly recommend this business.  He did an excellent job and we most certainly will use him again in the future.

AB 09 22

Great service and at a very reasonable price. We had a bit of an emergency with water leaking through the ceiling from an overflowing water tank in the loft as the ball valve was no longer working properly (plus a separate less urgent problem with a weeping in line valve). We phoned up at 8am and he was here just after 9am. He's obviously very knowledgeable and has 'seen it all' so he had both fixes done in no time. It just shows that experience really counts. Thank you.

RC 09 22

Harry answered my call straight away and was able to attend and replace an isolation valve on a toilet within an hour of my call and gave other advice.Very pleased with the service he provided.

SM 09 22

Just to say that the above plumbing firm were excellent. They came within a hour and did a good job with a reasonable charge.

AW 08 22

Harry was able to pop out the same day I'd called him to remove an old outside tap we had which was causing problems. It had been there 40 years and needed all his strength to shift it. Harry was polite, friendly, full of useful advice and charged a very reasonable price for the job.

DR 06 22

Responded very quickly to a leak adjacent to the rising main. Repaired the leak in a difficult position efficiently and left the area clean and tidy. Very reasonable price for the work involved Very satisfied.

CH 05 22

I would to say how very well I was served by A1 Plumbing of Earley. Harry was so helpful and and solved a difficult problem with my dish washer, replacing 2 pipes and I was really impressed by his tenacity to solve the problem. I recommend this plumber.

GG 05 22

A1 Plumbing contacted me after many failed attempts at getting someone to fix a dripping tap. He arrived on time and fixed the drip by taking the tap to pieces and replacing the seal, saving me the cost of replacing the part of the tap which was causing the problem. I can't fault the service that I got or the price. I have his business card on the fridge and will definitely use him for any future problems. Thank you.

CW 05 22

Absolutely brilliant. Came out on a Saturday lunchtime of Bank Holiday weekend, within half an hour of phone call, to fix washer in rather old tap. Cleaned out both taps, fixed washers, even removed limescale from basin. Very reasonable fee as well. Cannot be faulted.

AM 04 22

Arrived promptly and after trying various methods to resolve the problem we agreed to a replacement cistern. A few moments later I had a knock at the door to say that he had thought further and that we could try something else. This resolved the problem for a fraction of the cost of replacing the cistern. I cannot fault the work of the honesty. I will definitely use again.

TB 04 22

Excellent service - arrived on time and fitted a new stopcock and pipe in a really difficult corner of the kitchen cupboard. Very helpful and tidy. I would definitely recommend him.

SP 03 22

Outstanding service. My mother was being rushed off to hospital as her kitchen pipe burst.  I called A1, he was on site within the hour and fixed at a very reasonable price! I can’t thank you enough for making an extremely stressful situation so much better! Can’t recommend enough!

KL 02 22

Just wanted to let you know what a superb service we just received from A 1 Plumbing. Rang with emergency and Harry was round within half an hour and fixed things for us. Price was very reasonable, particularly at such short notice.


Thank you Harry and the Little Green Book.

LH 12 21

Emergency call-out for a leaking loft tank. Round within the hour, diagnosed the issue and fixed very promptly. Very reasonable price too. Excellent service! Highly recommended.

Great service from Harry. Failed stop cock, he was around in 20 minutes. Sorted within an hour. Neat tidy job and some good advice. All this great service at a good price.

NJ 09 21

The entry in The Directory says "No job too small" which was exactly my problem. When contacted about my blocked drain from a shower, came within 24hours, fixed it and it has been fine since. A very satisfied customer!

PK 08 21

An excellent service, responded rapidly to an emergency call and worked efficiently to sort out the problem. Was also friendly, tidied up well after his work and charges were very reasonable. We would definitely recommend this service.

CT 08 21

Had a real emergency on Thursday (22/7) with a leak on the joint of the main stop-cock in our Garage. Tried myself to cure it to no avail while my wife called A1. Harry Brough was with us in under 20 minutes and did a superb job replacing the stop-cock and joints. He was properly attired (mask etc) for the current circumstances; respectful; offered advice on some points - and nothing seemed to be too much of a problem. His call-out charge was more than reasonable as well. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.

DG 07 21

Harry came round within 10 minutes of my phone call to him. He was pleasant and very efficient, identifying and rectifying the problem very quickly. I am pleased to know that there are still people who offer the customer service we used to be able to expect. Yet again, a good reason for using 'little green book'!

BG 07 21

I have just had an emergency repair to a leaking stopcock carried out by Mr Brough from 'A 1 Plumbing' based in Early. This was a most efficient, courteous and prompt service, plus a very reasonable price. Just 2 hours from time of call to fix! Would definitely recommend.

JE 06 21

Came within 24 hours of my phoning. Toilet cistern malfunction. Harry assessed the problem and resolved it on the spot. He replaced one or two old parts while he was at it, and left all tidy afterwards. Very reasonable cost. Would definitely use again if necessary.

AM 06 21

Mr Brough came out very promptly to sort out a blocked sink and fixed it quickly without any major disruption. He offered some good advice and his rate was very reasonable.

RS 04 21

I received a prompt response to my telephone enquiry and a date was set for a visit on the next day which was a Saturday and both drain related problems were sorted successfully within the hour - excellent service.

DA 04 21

I was very pleased with this company.  I had a problem with my outdoor tap leaking.  The plumber came quickly and changed the tap.  He also fixed my kitchen tap.  He was an efficient and tidy worker and I would recommend this company.

ML 04 21

We have used A1 Plumbing on two occasions now and both were at short notice. Mr. Brough was very responsive and returned our calls and also attended to the problem rapidly and arrived when he said he would. He was efficient and thorough and his charges were most reasonable. I highly recommend him as a reliable plumber. 

MC 03 21

Discovered a burst pipe on the outdoor tap early Saturday evening and called A1 Plumbers - Mr Brough arrived promptly at property. He was very patient, courteous and informative throughout. He quickly determined the problem and located the isolation valve to enable us to keep the main water supply to the household without flooding the garden with water. He was very knowledgable and advised on the actions needs to resolve the issue.

SG 02 21

Mr Brough came out last evening as we had a serious leak near our hot water tank. He was up and down to our loft and located the problem – a small hole in the pipe! He was with us until quite late, fixed the problem and we just wanted to put on record what a wonderful service he provided. A real star!

MGO 02 21

Harry has just provided a great service -- not only swift but also, when on site, was able to do other plumbing jobs long put off as well as fix the problem for which he had been called out. Clearly very experienced and knowledgeable, and with an easy manner.  Recommended without reserve.

EW 01 21

We had a problem with dripping tap and seized main stopcock.Phoned Mr Brough and he came out within the hour. He is very helpful and gave us some advice .Finished the job quickly and efficiently. Would recommend him for good service.

PP 12 20

Top class advice over the phone and then excellent service next day - very pleased.                         

IY 12 20

Came home to find a crack in my pipe under the sink - called Mr Brough and he was there within half an hour and pipe was repaired within half an hour. Very quick and efficient! Will definitely use Mr Brough again as his knowledge is extensive and a complete life saver in a stressful situation.

HK 12 20

Ongoing problems with flushing two WCs at home, not urgent but increasingly frustrating. Contacted Harry Brough who arrived the same afternoon and after a couple of hours efficiently solved both issues replacing numerous worn parts. Now don't need muscles like Popeye to flush the downstairs loo! Very tidy and showed obvious concern for not making any more mess than absolutely necessary. Extremely reasonably priced for the work needed. Harry's number is already saved in my phone!

HB 11 20

Checked the directory, A1 Plumbing seemed ideal for a number of smaller outstanding jobs we had at home.Taps Dripping/WC parts. Harry responded promptly and was with us the next day. Once we explained the issues he had all he needed with him and completed that day. 100% all round, Thorough and very tidy and helpful with some household tips as well no hesitation would recommend and use again.

YH 11 20

Mr Brough answered my phone call straight away, promised to be with us within 2 hours and turned up within an hour. He is obviously very knowledgeable about all aspects of plumbing and it didn't take him long to diagnose and fix the problem. We would certainly call him again for any future problems we might experience and are more than happy to highly recommend him.

PA 10 20

Very good and friendly service, good price. Happy to use again and recommend.                                        

DP 10 20

I would not hesitate to recommend A1 Plumbing. Mr Brough promptly responded to my call to fix a leak in my bathroom. He was pleasant, helpful, and thorough in his work. I was very happy with the service and advice given. Thank you so much.

KF 10 20

Yesterday we found a mystery leak from a lavatory cistern and called Mr Brough. He came in about half an hour, swiftly located a fine crack of the cistern, stopped the flow and will fit a replacement very soon. While here he also managed to dismantle and rewasher a tap that was incurably dripping and had not been attended to for decades: a difficult job well done.

TH 09 20

I called A1 Plumbing to attend to a leak I had under my kitchen sink and he very promptly came to fix it. He was very efficient and was very pleasant, with a good sense of humour and reasonable rates. I can highly recommend Harry and will be doing so!

LH 09 20

A1 Plumbing are absolutely marvellous and very helpful. Harry went above and beyond whilst being extremely pleasant.

BL 07 20

Responded to my panicky call-out, on-site within the hour. Fixed the problem with minimum fuss. Considering the emergency response I felt his call-out charge of £65 was fair and reasonable. Harry proposed several options but felt that the lowest cost option was sound and recommended that. Friendly, approachable and I would use him again.

TG 07 20

Harry came out to fit a new kitchen mixer tap for us - and managed to fix my dishwasher too - an unexpected bonus!! Excellent service, very safety aware, highly recommended. Thank you Harry!!

CC 07 20

Contacted A1 on Monday morning reporting a water leak near the stopcock. They were able to send a plumber Monday afternoon. Plumber arrived early and was able to locate the leak and unfortunately for me it was in a difficult location (behind kitchen cabinets and in a corner surrounded by other pipework) that some plumbers would have walked away. Very happy the leak was fixed quickly and professionally. Highly recommended company.

RW 07 20

Mr Brough came out for a routine job of replacing regular isolation valves for full bore ones in order to increase our shower flow. He arrived within an hour of us calling, promptly assessed the work and completed the job very quickly. We will continue to use him as his work is excellent, reasonable and very prompt.

TL 07 20

As per previous recommendations and reviews in the Little Green Book on A1 Plumbing, Mr Brough came out to unblock my outside drain. He did a good job, was polite and cleaned up afterwards and was very reasonable with his charges. He is a credit to his job and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

BR 06 20

Mr. Brough, of A1 Plumbing, is an absolute gem. He arrived on time and did an excellent job. He also gave good advice and we were so glad to have found him and would gladly recommend him to our friends and neighbours.

BF 06 20

Mr Brough is professional and friendly. He knows what he’s doing and very competent. Very punctual too. Replaced our kitchen taps and improved the pipe work. No hesitation in recommending.

TL 06 20

At 5 am we discovered water pouring out of the kitchen wall. I called Mr Brough as soon as it was civilized to do so. He was very kind, calm and reassuring on the phone and said that he would come over straightaway. The pipping that he discovered behind the plasterboard was a mess and the burst pipe was behind other pipes. He very quickly found a way to replace it and did a fantastic job. He is so very neat and tidy, and a very calm and reassuring person. This is the second time that he has rescued us in this way. He is just amazing. Thank you very much Mr Brough.

MT 05 20

Bank Holiday Sunday, water pouring out of a pipe under my sink! Several failed calls to my home insurance co (who I have plumbing cover with!) I did an internet search for a local plumber and found A1 Plumbing who were just up the road from me. Called at 9.30 and explained the problem and they were with me within an hour having put back another job. Not an easy repair but completed quickly and efficiently. A fantastic job and I am extremely grateful as I was expecting to be without water for at least a couple of days. Customer service how I remember it years ago! Well done.

GH 05 20

We wanted a kitchen mixer tap replaced, a job made more complicated as the existing tap had an additional supply from a water filter (to be removed as parts no longer available) under the sink, together with the hoses to and from the dishwasher and washing machine thus limiting work space. Mr. Brough arrived promptly at the agreed time, gave me a running commentary on the actions he was taking and completed the job to my full satisfaction, leaving the area clean and removing the old items. It is now 10 days after the work and no leaks have occurred. I believe the price was reasonable for the time and work involved and so I have no hesitation in recommending Mr. Brough of A1 Plumbing.

HJ 03 20

We recommend A1 Plumbing No 336 in the Little Green Book. We have just used him, for the third time. He came out straight away, each time. He does not over charge and is so helpful and explains what he has to do.

Called Mr Brough to arrange for a new kitchen tap to be fitted. He was able to come the same day and installed the tap cleanly and efficiently. Whilst clearing up he noticed that the drainer was coming away from under the sink and he very quickly cleaned it up and resealed it for me. Great job, very satisfied.

PW 03 20

Harry came out straightaway when we had an emergency. He fixed various kitchen appliances. Very friendly and approachable.

LR 03 20

Excellent service came out within an hour of phoning. The job wasn’t easy and he found a way of sorting it. Extremely happy with the service would highly recommend.

NF 02 20

I called on A1 Plumbing, the plumber was very thorough and mended my toilet cistern, but was not able to attend to my leak as it was (I would assume) in a very precarious place and also at ground level (in my garage and would mean having to dig up my garage floor.  So am recommending him on the first part of the job.  He was very pleasant and knew what he was doing.   I thanked him very much for coming to me so quickly and working proficiently.

WG 02 20

Came out quickly and sorted the problem. Gave helpful advice. Would recommend.                                    

MK 12 19

Called A1 Plumbing from Earley on Sunday and they immediately rang me back. Arranged to call round the next day. Problem with blocked drain and was fixed within ten minutes. Very friendly and knowledgeable and charged a very reasonable price. Would definitely use again.

AI 11 19

Called out this plumber and he responded immediately, a very prompt arrival (within the hour) and a most efficient fix of our plumbing issue. Most impressed with the service and the very reasonable quote. Highly recommended.

PS 11 19

Helped my 90 year old mother with a dripping tap. Very prompt and good support.                                               

IH 10 19

Excellent fellow. Came straight away and despite a couple of little snags, did the job perfectly. Great service. Thoroughly recommended. 

JS 09 09

Harry did an amazing job, very thorough and explained every step describing the tools and replacements he was going to use. Also gave us some extra info about some appliances. Very happy. Highly recommended.

NV 08 19

Harry from A1 Plumbing responded promptly to an emergency call when we had water dripping through the ceiling. He quickly found and sorted out a leaking valve. He advised on other possible work without being pushy at all. Very polite and good value. Would definitely use again.

JB 08 19

Mr Brough arrived promptly, explained the problem relating to our dripping tap and put it right. A really good job – my wife and I are very happy!

MH 08 19

A1 Plumbing are excellent. They very efficiently solved our plumbing problem and conscientiously completed the work. We would have no hesitation to contact A1 in the future.

AB 08 19

Had a leaky tap, water going everywhere. Had to call one of the 24/7 plumbers as 11pm. A1 Plumbing were marvellous, gave advice over the phone, came the next morning, replaced tap and took away the old one. He was extremely kind. Very glad for The Little Green Book.

AN 05 19

I had a big plumbing issue on Easter Saturday. I randomly rang a few plumbers and left messages, A1 was the only one to call me back. H Brough called me back and when I asked for him to come out on Easter Sunday he was honest enough to tell me there would be a call out fee, to which I agreed. On the Sunday he arrived earlier than expected, did the job very efficiently and only charged the call out fee. I was very impressed with his knowledge, his polite manners and general efficiency. A tradesman that I would definitely call again if I needed to. Many thanks.

AJ 04 19

Harry Brought provided a very prompt, effective and first class service. He is very thorough and careful in his approach and honest in his appraisal of the situation he finds. He completed a toilet cistern repair and new tap installation for us to a high standard and his rates are competitive. We are very happy to recommend him.

JP 03 19

Replaced the immersion heaters and cleaned the cylinder in our hot water system. Excellent service and thoroughly recommended.

MC 03 19

Harry came to rescue when two of my 'normal' plumbers were both unavailable to help and it was a bit of an emergency. Aqualisa had fitted a shower but not pushed the middle connection in and boiling water was gushing out. He was calm did a check over everything and took photo's so I could explain the problem to Aqualisa. Who funnily enough said they had to install as they wouldn't support their own warranty otherwise. Harry is really knowledgeable and kind and you def feel in safe hands being a woman as there is no blinding with science just plain common sense and a way forward.

JJ 02 19

Had a Sunday morning emergency with water spraying from a pipe behind kitchen cupboards. Mr Brough arrived in less than an hour and despite the awkward location quickly replaced a stuck mains stopcock and the leaking pipework. Very reasonable charges for an out of hours visit.

DS 01 19

I am writing to tell you of the excellent service I and a neighbour have received from Mr Brough I thoroughly recommend him to anyone with plumbing needs.

MJ 11 18

JJ 11 18

Harold Brough of A1 Plumbing has saved my bacon a couple of times in recent months, the first time when a lavatory refused to flush, the second when a fractured seal turned a kitchen tap into a water fountain. In both cases the original fitter had taken short cuts, and "economised" on materials so that I could not attempt a repair without risk of serious damage. HB found a way round each problem, without danger and with the minimum of disturbance. The jobs are now far better than he found them - and all done with a very prompt response and at a very reasonable cost. Routine maintenance should be easy. I would have every confidence in turning to him again in a similar situation, and I can recommend him without hesitation.

DB 08 18

Did a great job. Identified the problem and fixed the leak. Also gave some good advice on cleaning the acrylic kitchen sink. I highly recommend him.

IJ 07 18

This afternoon I called out A1 Plumbing to deal with a dripping tap in my kitchen.  I had an excellent and prompt service.  The cost was reasonable and everything was done quickly and efficiently, including cleaning up afterwards.  Nothing but praise!

JB 06 18

A1 Plumbing have just visited my property and I wanted to ring to say what an excellent job they have done. They were on time, very efficient, very helpful and very nice.

TT 06 18

Harry from A1 Plumbing came out promptly, dealt with the faulty toilet flush very efficiently then persevered with a very difficult problem dripping tap until all sorted. Reasonable rates and good service.

BT 04 18

Harry was so helpful when we had an emergency on Friday night, that we wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him.

MC 02 18

Came out within the hour to fix my overflowing water tank. New ballcock fitted at reasonable price. Tidied up nicely. Good guy and a great local service.

TG 03 18

Sunday morning - big water leak in kitchen - panic! called A1 Plumbing, he arrived within the hour and repaired the problem. Prompt, efficient and explained the problem great service!! Thanks Little Green Book.

BL 02 18

Very pleased with the service of A1 Plumbing. Had been let down by two previous tradesman.  A1 came out when he said he would and did an excellent job and at a reasonable price. Would definitely call him again and will recommend him.

CA 02 19

The Little Green Book is always my first port of call for local tradesmen - In this case I needed a number of taps replaced. I have to say I was a little sceptical that some plumbers would even get out of bed to replace 3 taps but I phoned A1 Plumbing in the morning and he came out that afternoon! He was polite, tidy and not too expensive. Would recommend.

DS 02 18

Harry willingly came out at short notice on a Saturday morning to unblock our shower drain. To get the best value from the call-out Harry asked if we had any other plumbing niggles and he happily fixed a slow-filling toilet cistern at the same time, within the cost of the call-out. With Harry's good value for money and the great tips he supplied on other plumbing matters, I fully recommend Harry.

JW 11 17

Had a kitchen mixer tap replaced 3 days ago by A1 Plumbers. Very good job done, with care and attention to detail. I thought the price was very reasonable too.

AW 11 17

Excellent Service. Came on time. Carried out work efficiently and cleanly for a reasonable price. Friendly service.

JT 10 17

Just used Mr Brough at A1 Plumbing and would highly recommend. He promptly returned my phone call and after a bit of tracking solved our ' water hammer ' problem. Bill was fair and he even called a few days after to check that solution working.

KH 08 17

I would thoroughly recommend Mr Brough. He came over promptly to unblock my kitchen sink and replace the washers in my bathroom. He also carried out some other work and all for a very good price.

TR 08 17

Mr Brough responded quickly to a request to repair my toilet cistern which was not flushing reliably, was able to attend next day at the arranged time, changed the worn diaphragm and checked and changed some other parts, tidied up the hook connection from the lever to the plunger, explained what he was doing and why, was tidy and checked his shoes were clean at the door before entering the house. I had the impression he was a thoroughly efficient, experienced and competent plumber, would have no hesitation in using him again. £54 seemed a very fair price for the job. 

MS 07 17

We discovered a water leak on the wrong side of our kitchen stopcock very late in the evening and contacted Mr Brough. He responded very quickly and was at our house until 1.30 in the morning. He managed to turn off the water but left us with the means to turn it back on for showers etc in the morning. He then returned as promised in the morning and repaired the leak very efficiently. His rates were very fair even though it was an out of hours response! I cannot recommend him enough!

MG 06 17

We called Mr Brough from A1 Plumbing late on Saturday afternoon after we found a big leak from a copper pipe next to the stopcock. He came out straight away as we were very worried and sorted out a temporary solution. He then came back first thing on Sunday morning to fix it. It is only possible to reach the stopcock from a very small hole in the wall right next to the floor. Mr Brough had to lie flat on the floor to reach it and it was incredible how he managed to cut off the broken pipe and refit the stopcock through the tiny hole in the wall. He was very professional and explained everything to us as he went along. He was very reassuring and knowledgeable. He gave us very helpful advice and money saving tips about water use. Very reasonable price indeed and excellent work. We highly recommend A1 Pluming. 

MT 05 17

Prompt attendance after I phoned with a slight plumbing problem. Fixed the problem very quickly at minimum cost. Recommended!

IS 04 17

I write to say that A1 Plumbers gave very good service.  I had to call out Mr Brough today, a Sunday, because we had a drip from a pipe which feeds into our boiler.  He arrived within 10 minutes, did an excellent job and his charge was very reasonable.  I would recommend him.  

LH 04 17

Said he would turn up in 10 minutes – turned up in 10 minutes! Fixed two small jobs on my toilet and tap at very reasonable charge. Would certainly use again. Brilliant.

SES 01 17

Harry came in 30 minutes on a cold and wet Sunday morning in December. He was very helpful and polite and was able to locate and isolate the leak. Very reasonably priced and happy to recommend him.

MD 12 16

Harry came to fix a leaking radiator valve, made a small repair thus avoiding the need to drain down the system and was generally very helpful. his charge was moderate and I would thoroughly recommend him.

JD 12 16

Good and efficient service.

GY 11 16

Rang A1 Plumbing when I had problems with 2 stopcocks (one leaking and the other not shutting off the water). Harry was here within the hour and fixed both problems. Also gave useful tips as regards maintenance. Very pleased with the service provided and would definitely recommend A1 Plumbing.

DO 11 16

I was very impressed by A1 Plumbing both in terms of the quality of the work completed and their polite, no-nonsense (but not intimidating) approach. I had what I thought was a leaking stopcock which instead turned out to be a leaking pipe that had been cemented in to the wall. A bigger job than envisaged. A1 Plumbing were excellent in highlighting the risks associated with any course of action taken which allowed me to make informed decisions. Despite the change in the scope of the work it was completed quickly and professionally. A1 Plumbing kept mess to a minimum and were very thorough in cleaning up what mess there was. I will definitely be calling upon A1 Plumbing again for my next plumbing emergency.

DD 11 16

Following two recommendations, I booked Harry at A1 Plumbing. He arrived on time, considered the problem, found a solution and fixed my leaking sink plughole. He also dealt with another sink issue which I hadn't realised needed attention and fixed that too. I liked Harry's direct approach, telling it as it is. I shall call on him for any future plumbing problems and recommend him to my friends.

Not such a good experience with A1 Plumbing of Earley. I picked them from the green book as it stated 'no job too small' - I had a leaky kitchen tap and bathroom basin taps that needed replacing. A1 very negative about both problems, clearly didn't want to do the jobs. He said that he couldn't get the old basin taps off and suggested I called somebody else. If your job is not quick and easy then don't waste your time ringing him.


Harry Brough has replied to this review as follows:

Firstly there was no charge whatsoever for the hour that he spent trying to sort the customer’s problem. He further added that just occasionally (rarely) this sort of situation occurs where it is impossible for him to free up corroded tap(s) or perhaps a stopcock without possible damage being caused and, in those albeit rare circumstances, he would rather not undertake the job.  


The Directory comments as follows:

Harry Brough (A1 Plumbing) has been in The Directory for many years and receives a lot of praise from clients as can be seen from the many reviews on the web page. This is the first such slightly negative review and must be placed in context. He was not able to help in this one-off instance and did not charge for his time. Friends of the publishers have employed his services - so would we……….

Harry Brough of A1 Plumbing has twice sorted out small plumbing problems and has given us excellent service and advice.  He is extremely good at approaching a problem and his work is brilliant. His charges are very reasonable. We would highly recommend him.

Had a good experience today with Harry Brough - quick work at a reasonable price.

After being let down by a plumber 2 Fridays in a row, I rang Harry. I outlined we may have a problem changing the kitchen tap as the stop cock may need replacement. Harry turned up found the stop cock was stiff, but perfectly fine and we had isolators anyway and he proceeded to change my eroded, heavily leaking kitchen tap. Genuinely we understood our stop cock was going to be a nightmare, but thanks to Harry turning up, assessing and then actually doing the job - this has made this customer so very happy. Fair price for a good job, well done and Harry's a straightforward, sound chap. Thank you!

CF 09 16

Very happy with the response and service. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Once again I am pleased to recommend A1 Plumbing of Earley for prompt attendance, reasonable rates and effective repair work. Very useful to have the phone number easily accessible in The Directory - thanks.

BK 06 16

I had an emergency with a leaking pipe...9 o'clock at night! The plumber was out and at my house within 15 mins. Really happy with the service and will be using Mr Brough again.

TT 05 16

Prompt same day service for a leak under the bath and an overflow problem with a WC. I phoned Harry in the morning and he came to rectify the problems that afternoon. He was polite, tidy and methodical and his price was reasonable. Very good professional service!

JS 05 16

I just want to record my complete satisfaction with the service I have received from A1 Plumbing, especially as it all happened on a Bank Holiday! A severe leakage had occurred which caused quite a few problems in finding the source.   This was all dealt with efficiently and cheerfully and I am extremely grateful.  I will definitely recommend A1 Plumbing to  anyone I know who needs a good plumber.

HL 03 16

I recently contacted A1 Plumbing over a problem with a tap in the bathroom . Within 15 minutes the plumber arrived and cured the problem. He was courteous friendly and extremely efficient and obviously knew his trade inside out. When we asked him about a few other tasks he tackled and remedied them on the spot. I can highly recommend him as a person to deal with in regards to plumbing.

RH 02 16

The number of positive reviews here is a good indication of reliability and this was true. Faultless for prompt response, diagnosis and repair, with associated helpful preventative advice. Will definitely call Mr Brough out again to sort out a few other jobs we have identified.

JP 01 16

At 4pm on a Friday with the only toilet in the house not working we were in a bit of a panic. We saw the good reviews on here and gave A1 Plumbing a call. Mr Brough arrived 15 minutes after our phone call and an hour later our toilet was fixed and working better than ever. Like so many on here, we can highly recommend A1 Plumbing. The service was quick, efficient and affordable.

AC 11 15

Mr Brough has been fantastic!! We were in dire straits with a badly leaking waste pipe and he turned up 15 minutes after my phone call and fixed it for us. He has recently been out on two other occasions, one at a weekend to put right someone else's work and again today - fitting us in at short notice. Extremely professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a personal, reliable plumber - whatever the job. 

CC 11 15

We would just like to say how impressed we were with A1 plumbing when we called them out to fix our toilet flush on Friday.  He came with an half hour of when we telephoned and did a great job on what originally seemed to be quite a simple task and turned out to be quite a bit bigger one.  He left our bathroom really clean and tidy and was also very reasonable.

BT 10 15

We have been delighted with Mr. Brough's prompt, efficient and cheerful service. He came to our aid within half an hour, even though it was a Sunday morning, identified the problem quickly and fixed it without delay. He is a real friend in need.

CW 08 15

I had a leak in a copper pipe in an extremely difficult area to get access to in my bathroom.  He did not know where the leak was between the bathroom and the kitchen but quickly found the leak about an arm’s length under the bathroom floor.  The pipe was cut and replaced without leaving any residual damage to fixtures and fittings.  He was very professional and thorough throughout only leaving when he was sure everything was exactly as it should be.  He attended my house within 15 minutes of my call.

I would definitely use them again and have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.  

JH 08 15

Attended very promptly after my telephone message and fitted the new taps and toilet cistern siphon which I had purchased. Resolved problems removing the old taps and dealt with having to dismantle the cistern to remove the old siphon and replace it competently. He also dealt with a jammed water valve in the airing cupboard which he needed to close to drain the pipes and advised that this would need replacing at a later date. The completed work is completely satisfactory and the charge was very reasonable. We are pleased with the work that was carried out.

RA 08 15

We have recently had three jobs done by A1 Plumbing. He was punctual, he did first class work, his price was reasonable. We were satisfied in every respect and would recommend him without reservation.

GT 07 15

He arrived early, was able to fix a dripping tap, was very friendly,  only took half an hour and was very reasonable.  I will certainly use him again. 

KS 06 15

A1 have just fixed a problem with my toilet.  Very pleased with the quick response and work done.

SH 06 15

I can highly recommend A1 Plumbing for the prompt, efficient and friendly service. I have used them twice and would not hesitate to do so again.

BK 10 13

Acted promptly, safely and efficiently to deal my leaking pipe, reasonable cost and extremely professional.  I would definitely use again.

SM 06 15

Turned up on time, fixed the problem,had a cup of coffee - absolutely first class service.

MA 05 15

Harry of A1 arrived 25 minutes after I called asking for help. He was great. Friendly, professional and thorough. I insisted on a business card so that I can use him again for any other problems, and also recommend him to friends. I had issues with two cisterns in my house and he fixed them both, efficiently and quickly. And the cost was less than expected.

MY 05 15

I had a burst pipe in my house and it was about 8pm. After unsuccesssful attempts at calling out national plumbers I turned to the little green book. I called A1 Plumbers who came immediately. Very nice, fixed the leak and made sure my heating was all back up and running before he left. Gave me some advise on maintenance. Good price considering the time of night. 

DS 01 15

After a call out to A1 Plumbing we received fantastic service. The plumber arrived within 15 minutes and was very polite and knowledgable. He identified which drain was blocked, having to work in almost complete darkness, and unblocked it quickly. Would not hesitate to use again, though hope it won't be necessary of course.

AV 01 15

Mr H. Brough of A1 Plumbing has just finished work for me, changing the pipe work on a jammed stopcock and fixing a bathroom tap. I was very impressed with his work, he was here for just under 2 hours and his price was very reasonable.

MS 03 15

I would like to recommend A1 Plumbing. I had a couple of leaking pipes and they were fixed in less than half an hour. The plumber was very and friendly throughout completing the job at a good price.

JR 04 15

He was very prompt after my telephone message and was very reasonably priced after struggling with a wing nut on a rusty thread for ages in a confined space, but finally found suitable parts to get the toilet flushing properly again. He also gave me free advice on several other things. I shall certainly call him again if I have another plumbing problem. 

TC 05 15

He came to attend to a couple of small jobs for us.  He gave excellent service and when there was a minor issue he was back very promptly to rectify it.
