    What Qualifications should my Plumbing Engineer have?

    City and Guilds or NVQ?

    Before the introduction of NVQ qualifications, City and Guilds qualification were the main certificates and exams which plumbers sat. Older plumbers may be City and Guilds qualified whereas younger plumbers will probably have studied NVQs, or SVQs in Scotland. Most plumbers who do domestic work should be qualified to NVQ level 2 standard, which is roughly equivalent to an A level.

    Many go further and take the level 3 exams also. NVQ training is typically done on the job, with the plumber starting off with simple jobs while studying at college in the evening or on a day release programme.

    Leaking, Dripping & Burst Pipes

    Pipes can burst anywhere and at any time which can result in water leaking through floors and walls.

    This will cause damage to the electrics within your property, damp ceilings, damp patches, pooling water, and other signs of water escape.

    Obviously, if not attended to by a professional immediately, this can cause huge amounts of damage to the structure of your property, your furniture, and personal affects.

    This may also affect the surrounding areas of your property, with water flowing into parts of your home which may cause a danger to you and your family.

    If you discover a leak or a burst pipe, donÔÇÖt delay on contacting us today.

    24/7 Emergency Plumbing

    Our fully qualified, insured, NVQ qualified engineers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to handle any situation.

    In the event of an emergency, look for your property’s stopcock. This is typically located under your kitchen sink on the mains cold supply entering your property, however, this can very but should be at an accessible point.

    The stopcock is a valve for turning off and on the cold-water system in your home. When you turn the stopcock in a clockwise direction the water supply will be shut off. You can turn the water supply back on by turning the stopcock in an anti-clockwise direction.

    Once shut off, call and book one of our Plumbing Engineers and we will happily visit your home to assist further.

    Here is what some of our customers have to say about their experience in using us:

    • Brilliant service.

      It’s really hard to come across tradesman you can trust nowadays. I was recommended this electrician from a family members and so glad I booked him in. He was so polite and respectful to my property, talked to me through all the possibilities and costs involving. Job completed quickly and my property left all clean and tidy! Thank you 24/7. Until next time x

    • Prompt arrival and clear explanation!

      Prompt arrival and a clear explanation of what the issue was and what next steps were. They was very professional and I would highly recommend!

    • If you want trustworthy, transparent quotes with professional and quality service, look no further

      From the initial call centre contact to the free follow up personal check on the work carried out, its a flawless service. My biggest concern is always calling out a tradesman on work I know nothing about. 24/7 turn up in clean vans with presentable workmen and talk you through the problem – with photo’s to illustrate. Puts your mind at rest.

    • Great Job, Promptly Done

      The technician showed up dead on time, completed the work quickly and well including the last-minute extra of fixing the window handle, and even went to buy window cleaner to get his fingerprints off the glass. Couldn’t have asked for better.

    • Fast Response

      Fast response, get the job done quickly, very good experience.

    • Good, Efficient & Very Prompt

      They were very fast in sending someone out to do our job and he was very efficient and hard working as well as arriving on time (a little early in fact). I have used another local handyman service and they were not nearly as good and professional as 24/7 Plumbing & Electrics – would definitely recommend them.

    • Wide Range of Services

      I like using 24/7 as they are a local company providing a wide range of services. The quotations for work are clear with a per task breakdown if doing several jobs. I can trust them with a key if I can’t be there, and they arrive when they say they will. Staff are polite and professional, and good at explaining how they will carry out their work.

    • Blocked Kitchen Sink

      In less than 24 hours of booking a plumber via 24/7 Plumbing & Electrics, my blocked kitchen sink was sorted. Glenn, the plumber who came, was polite and professional. He even cleaned up the mess after he had fixed the problem. I am a very happy and relieved customer.

    • Excellent Customer Support

      I have been called back as promised and managed to arrange replacement for a thermostat in a 3 min phone conversation. Very reliable and professional service, that will definitely make us come back with more orders.

    • Impeccable service

      Robert has been nothing but a complete joy to communicate with. His eye for detail and patience has been a welcome addition to the usual treatment I have previously received from trades people. Cannot say enough good things and would not hesitate to use again.
