    These guys were highly professional, prompt and courteous. They are very focussed on customer liaison and kept us informed about everything. I couldn't have asked for anything more. I will definitely be calling Water Tight next time I have a plumbing issue.

    Very professional job from start to finish – from easy booking process to job completion. We had a leak, the source of which was a mystery. Serviceman, Josh arrived at the scheduled time, listened carefully as the problem was explained, informed us of what he would do to investigate it, identified the source of the leak, repaired it and cleaned up the area completely. We were delighted, and would certainly call on Watertight again for any plumbing work, and highly recommend them to others.
