Just a little bit about me, I have been involved with plumbing almost as long as I can remember. My father is a plumber and I always wanted to follow in his footsteps even as a small boy. It might sound a little odd but I do have a genuine love for this industry and I would never do anything to bring this in to question. I firmly believe in doing any job of work to the highest standards possible.

I have been trained to the highest industry recognised standards possible studying for five years at technical collage plus working in the industry under constant assessment followed by gaining registration to Gas Safe. I started as a self employed plumber about ten years ago after growing unhappy with the ways larger companies treat the customer and the prices they charge!

For example heating in a large house may be divided into one zone comprising living rooms and another zone comprising bedrooms, with a timer and room thermostat (or programmable thermostat) for each zone. Where Domestic Hot Water is heated by the boiler the water heating may be considered as a zone.
