I still had James mobile number from several years ago and rang him on a Saturday afternoon. He answered straight away – told him our hot water problem and said he would be there on Monday. Arrived on time and organised a spare hot water system to help us out – at no charge until we sorted things out. What plumber in Australia does something for free? – James did. Our old system was cactus and he emailed a report on the spot for insurance plus got a new Solar roof system all organised for that Thursday. Again they arrived on time – not used to that with tradies believe me, and his team did the job, all the while being polite and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend Bar plumbing to anyone as very switched on plumbers, a pleasure to deal with for a great job @ a fair and reasonable rate. Rog…

Good fast service. Our hot water system blew Sunday night, by 10 Monday morning Bar Plumbing were here with a standby unit until our split system Solar was installed and now we are up and running solar hot water and haven’t run out yet. Cleaned up their mess took away the old system in the price and were true to their Qoted price. James was easy to deal with.

James from Bar Plumbing was excellent, from the quote to the install. The staff arrived at the appointed time they were very courteous and professional. They removed the old hot water system and installed the new solar system on the roof very efficiently. They disposed of the old system and all packing from the new system. I cannot rate the service more highly and I would have no hesitation in using this firm in the future.

Hi James just wanted to thank you for helping us make the best decision in purchasing our Solar Hot Water System. We are extremely happy with our unit. We followed your instructions and left the booster on for time you recommended then turned it off and we’ve had ample hot water to meet our needs. Thanks for the speediness with installation and I also wish to commend your work team for their politeness and professionalism in their work. Very happy customers.
