    5 star review  James came the day after we contacted him to quote and supplied the system reasonably quickly after that. It was a difficult installation on a two storey roof but it was done very neatly and quickly. We are very happy with the job and we are now saving both water and electricity.

    5 star review  Very happy with James. He was very prompt and informative covering everything we wanted to know before making our decision. We did not feel pressured or rushed into a decision so can recommend this service

    thumb Neil McKenna

    5 star review  Recently needed to replace my (very old) solar hot water. Received very reasonable quote from Barr Plumbing. They turned up when they said they would and no issues from them when they encounted issues requiring more materials and labour due to our somewhat ancient system. Very simply----very professional !

    thumb Gordon Sheriff

    5 star review  James and his team installed a 2 panel 300 litre roof top hot water service for my family last month after our existing hot water died. The job was done in half a day and they took away the dead one. We ran the booster for about 4 days then turned it off and haven’t turned it back on since, we are making hot water from the sun only. Family of 4 (2 teenagers) and no issues with enough hot water. James and his team were great to deal with and we would happily recommend to anyone.

    thumb Dean Roberts

    5 star review  James at Bar Plumbing is excellent to deal with, our old solar hotwater system failed when one of the panels sprung a leak that couldn't be repaired. James went through all our options in regards to replacing the system and explained everything in detail. Our system was replaced within a short period of time at a competitive price with the work being completed and the site left in a clean state. I would highly recommend Bar Plumbing for all your plumbing needs. Thanks James.
