Happy Customers

  • John did an excellent job installing our boiler and he made our whole plumbing system more managable by adding shut-off valves in lots of new places.

    Paul Hooper

  • I don’t know if John was happy fixing the mess the broken toilet caused on the floor but my tenant was happy and I was very happy. The problem with the wobbly toilet was resolved and it is now firmly bolted to the floor without movement. The new floor is also a great hit with the tennant after the smelly carpet was removed. Many thanks

    Brigitte at Gateway Letting

  • I can recommend John @ Bluewave, very professional, reliable and tenacious when it comes to trouble shooting plumbing issues that other plumbers can’t be bothered if it’s not a straight forward job. I don’t really want to recommend him actually – as then he’ll get really busy and I won’t be able to book him!

    Claire Empson

  • Very many thanks to John Leathan for masterminding the transformation of my tiny primitive bathroom into a luxurious bath/shower room with a basin and toilet ? it even looks bigger than before thanks to the canny design. The bonus was that it was such a painless process, all finished within a week , the tiler, the plasterer and painter all arriving on schedule (no going off and starting other jobs in the middle of it all) A thousand thanks. ? Just off to have a shower!

    Judy Fitton of Dulwich

  • John is an excellent plumber, who I recommend to all my friends. As a Lettings Agent, he is our first call for all Plumbing related issues.

    Stuart Williams

  • Thank you for the lovely job you made of removing the exiting bath, and fitting a shower and enclosure where the bath used to be at my mother;s house. On the first meeting you listened and gave advice as to the best way of achieving this.

    Used John to install a new shower room. Happy with the job, found him to be friendly and punctual.
