I used Bishops Plumbing in Hove for my leaky loo recently. They came out quickly and sorted the problem for an okay price. Found them on checkatrade.com so they are trustworthy

Tony Williams? I rung him once thanks to a recommendation on here and he didn't even turn up. Had to go elsewhere.

Checkatrade do try and police their members. We were recently contacted by them to check that the feedback that had been submitted for a builder who did some work for us was genuine. It wasn't! The job had been completed about two years before the feedback was submitted and they managed to mispel our name and also gave the wrong e-mail address. My only concern is what action they take when they find false feedback. In this case it looks as if the only action has been to remove the feedback in question. I would have thought it better to remove the trader completely or to hoghlight that they have used false feedback.

A personal recommendation from someone that you trust is the best option, but failing that at least checkatrade should exclude the really unscrupulous traders. It's not a perfect system by any means.
I've watched enough programmes on dodgy companies not to pick a name at random from the yellow pages, which is about the only other option with a plumbing emergency.

I can recommend Tony Williams - 07801 784192 - very honest and reliable. Agree that you need to go on personal recommendations too - not checkatrade (seen very poor workmanship by a lewes builder who is on checkatrade !) Good luck though with whoever you choose.
