I had a fantastic experience with Dial Up Plumbing! Darby and Mark came to our apartment to fix a sink that had been blocked for about 2 weeks. Not only did they clear the blockage efficiently, but they also tightened up the sink tap with precision, ensuring no possible leakage or issues in the future. Their expertise and professionalism were truly impressive. I highly recommend Dial Up Plumbing for all your plumbing needs. Thanks, Darby and Mark!

Darby and Mark did a wonderful job for me. They relining both sides of stormwater pipes, install a new pit and make a new connection to the street(due to my neighbour’s used my old connection and left me with no connection). They do take every detail very seriously and replace all the old joins. Now every thing is 5 stars. They keep telling me that I can call them any time If anything happens. They are wonderful people. They came on time and clean everything before they go on each time. I ask , they answer and make me so comfortable. Thanks Charlie and Claire for organise this job and make it happen so smooth. Thanks 🙏
