Fantastic Local Plumbers

We woke up Saturday morning to a pool of water in our bathroom, after a disastrous attempt at trying to fix it ourselves (we made it worse and came close to divorce), we decided to google local plumbers. Rye Plumbing & Heating came up, i called and Rick came within 15 minutes. Great guy, helped fix and replace the pipes we needed and didn't charge us crazy money... so refreshing. We would 100% use Rick again and i can't recommend him enough. His number is 07721060037.
I run A Small Studio, (an architecture, design & landscape practice in West Dulwich) and I meet tradesmen on a daily basis on different construction sites.

I recently had the pleasure of working with Rick's company (07721060037) for an emergency plumbing job. They were able to make the site visit within the same day, handled the job with care and precision and charged a very reasonable rate. I could tell they were experienced ands serious with their job and took care of their clients. I would wholeheartedly recommend calling them for nay Plumbing needs.

Rick did a really great job, two repairs in one visit, fast and efficient, obviously a very experienced plumber. I'll certainly call then again ( Rick 07721060037) Jane
I would definitely recommend Rick. I phoned Rick regarding a leaking toilet (it is a customised unit with a sink attached that an other plumber called would not touch!) He came the next morning and fixed it promptly. Whilst there also fitted a new kitchen tap and linked up an outside garden tap as well. Very friendly, fast and efficient. Reasonably priced. I will using his services again regarding s bathroom refurbishment. Claire

I would also recommend Rick and his team. I called him this morning (07721060037) with 2 seperate issues - a leaking kitchen sink and a blocked saniflow and his colleagues were round a couple of hours later. Very friendly, helpful and efficient and got things fixed in no time. Thankfully they could clear the blockage saving me several hundred pounds and lots of hassle for a new saniflow system. Will definitely use again if we have further plumbing troubles!
Rang around for a plumber. Thank god Rick answered.

He came an hour later - checked out the leak advised of parts - went and got them

Spent over two hours completely taking the toilet apart!!!

And put it all back together - cleaned and hoovered. And his rates were very reasonable especially as it was a Saturday , last minute and he responded straight away. Puts my faith back in this forum.

Call him. 07721 060037
Another recommendation for Rick, rang him on Sunday as I managed to burst a water pipe by stuffing too much food down my insinkerator! He came within a couple of hours and worked fast and efficiently to fix the problem.

Rick: 07721 060037
And another recommendation for Rick. He came in less than an hour, assessed the problem (with a toilet), got the necessary parts and fixed it. He charged what he quoted and that was reasonable.
Add to that, he was pleasant. I will recommend him and would use him again...though of course I hope I wont need to!
And another recommendation for Rick. Came this morning to fix leaking sink. Quickly sourced the part that was needed and all done for a very reasonable price. Great to find a reliable plumber

Rick just called around this morning to finish off my bathroom, really professional great job if you need a plumber around the east Dulwich area call him on 07721060037
I would like to add my recommendation to the list. Rick did a great job for me, he turned up on time, was polite and good value for money. I'll definitely use him again.
Hi, another endorsement for Rick and his brother.

Rick was originally booked for a small job in the new house we moved to on Saturday, however throughout the day inherited problem plumbing started to show itself. Nothing was an issue for Rick and he sorted everything quickly and competitively!

Would definitely recommend Rick to all on the EDF looking for a plumber.
Another recommendation for Rick. He did a really good job sorting out our leaky pipes and was very polite and reasonable.
I would also like to recommend Rick. Even though our jobs weren't an emergency, he came round very quickly and his work is neat, tidy and he cleaned up after himself. You can contact him on 07721060037.
Hi,

I'd also recommend Rick at Rye Plumbing & Heating, 07721060037,needed a loo seat fixing in a hurry, he popped in on his way home and did it quickly and reasonably!
Hi all. I too can whole heartedly recommend Rick (07721060037). I had a sink waste which needed replacing and he came round the same day I called and replaced it incredibly quickly and for a very reasonable price. I will be using his services again for sure. Thank you.
Another recommendation for Rick. He repaired our leaking shower, fitted new taps and checked over work completed by another plumber (who had left me feeling less than confident!) A nice guy, who is quick and reasonable. Will use him again.
Quick and efficient loo repair at a very reasonable cost. Friendly and helpful service from Rick and Michael. Many thanks both. Highly recommended.
Rick fixed our toilet yesterday and re-siliconed the shower. good job, fast and friendly service.
I texted Rick just over 2 hours ago about a very slow draining sink which I was hoping to get fixed sometime during the week - wasn't bad enough to need an emergency call out.

Much to my surprise he called me straight back and said he could be with me in a couple of hours, and no extra fee for weekend call-out as he was working already. All fixed very quickly and efficiently, plenty of useful tips shared so that when I decide to replace the bathroom in full I don't make some of the mistakes that were made in the current installation.

When I eventually replace in full I will definitely give him a call for a quote.
Another positive endorsement from me! I rang Rick yesterday around 9am and he was with me by 10am. We had a leaking stopcock and also a small fracture in one of the pipes. Rick did a fantastic job and kept me informed throughout of what needed to be done. He also carried out the work in our very cramped downstairs loo so access was quite tricky. As an added bonus he sealed the loo to the floor which obviously hadn't been dealt with properly by the previous owners.

I will definitely use Rick again next time we need a plumber. Very nice guy, good work and tidied up afterwards.
I had a very bad experience with him..came to my flat in kennington ..tried to repair my pump ..replaced a kitchen tap..charged me £290 ..wouldnt leave till the money was in his account ..the pump broked the next day again and he wouldnt come round and repair it..said it was the previous p;umbers problem..no hot water over the weekedn and way too expensive and didnt even come back to help

Really bad
We had Rick round last week to look at a leaking toilet, he managed to fix the problem despite it being a hidden cistern with no proper access panel left by the plumber who installed it, his solution to replace the loo without having to smash up the bathroom tiles & get the old cistern out has saved us money & hassle in the long term in my opinion. I am happy to recommend him based on our experience & he is due back tomorrow to finish off some other bits & pieces. I am happy to recommend him & will post again after he has been back if I am happy with the next bit of the job - which I am sure based on what he did last week we will be. I would say reliable and friendly & efficient service.
More praise and thanks. I called Rick for an evening emergency - water dripping from the ceiling. Not only did he answer the phone, he promptly visited and fixed the leak. I appreciated his honest and energetic approach - I'd have been none-the-wiser if he'd said I needed a huge expensive fix. Since, Rick has completed a couple of things to a high standard, minimal fuss, promptly and quickly. Plus he's a nice guy.

Another recommendation for Rick - he came over in very short notice to fix a leaking sink, a leaking toilet (the toilet was a repair of a previous plumber's botch job) and a second toilet that was making a horrific noise on flushing. He clearly diagnosed the problems, told us how he'd fix it, got on with it, and repaired it all to high standard at a reasonable price. He's also a pleasant person to have in the house. Highly recommend and thank you Rick!
Thank you for posting your recommendations. I took this one up: called Rick this morning, he and his son popped round this evening, and shortly afterwards my misbehaving toilet was back in order and my leaking stopcock was fixed.

By comparison, we had previously called out a pricey 'fast response' plumbing firm from just the other side of the river to deal with the stopcock, and they had told us it would take several hours (and £££) to fix. So thank you everyone for identifying a capable and no nonsense local plumber. I would definitely use Rick again.
Just had to add another update after my previous recommendation, as Rick has now disappointed me a little. Unfortunately, he appears to have a habit of walking off with peoples house keys and not returning them without lots of chasing. He completed a job on Friday where I lent him my keys so he could purchase some pipes he said he needed (I had another appointment so couldn't let him back in.) Despite several phone calls, messages and texts Rick still hasn't returned them. This is the second time this has happened. Once you can assume was a mistake but not twice. I want my keys back please Rick!
Rick did a great job repairing a leak for us. He was quick to respond very friendly and helped with a 2nd problem for no extra to his already very reasonable price.

No call out charge too.
