Received a quote for $2950 - yep that's right THREE grand for 20 metres of drainage to contain seeping water from a higher garden bed and two downpipes from gutters running alongside a room.
What was requested was a drain with grates so water can seep through as well collect the water from the downpipes.
What was installed was a drain PIPE and so guess what now happens to the seeping water?
The problem is now worsened with water being collected at a higher level due to the pipe and now overflowing into the room.
Couldn't have done worse and wouldn't have believed a plumbing company could do this.
Really, really, bad example of drainage.
Still waiting for an apology from a supposedly professional company.
My experience with Jims Plumbing was first class, our hot water service went on a Monday Night, Jims Plumbing was here ( Dennis ) at 8am the next morning, explained it was better to upgrade to a continuous flow instantaneous system instead of replacing it with our existing solar heated electrical system, was able to organize finance on the spot and we hot a new service running by that afternoon, Metrolec Electrical, ( Jims Plumbing Electrical Contractor was also extraordinary with their service as they had to leave a job down South to attend to our job in the Northern Suburbs ) to ensure the job would be finished that day. Would highly recommend the Jims Plumbing / Metrolec Electrical Team.
The plumber that came out to fix our leaking shower was wonderful. So understanding, knowledgable and professional. Definitely using him again if needed.
Job was done profesionally in a speedy and efficient pace. Will use again as well as recommending to family and friends

One of my outdoor taps was leaking and I had planned to call a plumber for several months, but I never got around to it. Then I started getting water hammer in my kitchen and laundry taps, so I decided to give Jim's Plumbing a call to fix both problems. The plumber arrived promptly within the specified time window and was very friendly. Finding my stop tap took a long time because it was buried in the garden. Once the stop tap was located, the plumber quickly fixed the outdoor tap. He then worked on the water hammer issue and managed to solve the problem after some trial-and-error. I was impressed that the plumber took the time to diagnose the real problem, rather than try and sell me unnecessary expensive equipment. In the end, once he made the diagnosis, the real problem was easily fixed (jammed valve on the hot water system).
I would certainly use Jim's plumbing again in the future. The rates are rather expensive, but I'm happy to pay a little bit more to guarantee great service. There's nothing worse than paying a plumber to come out and then the problem isn't fixed completely due to shoddy workmanship.
Hot water system required replacing. Very prompt and professional. Excellent service and friendly staff
Blocked sewerage on a Sunday afternoon, called Jim's Plumbing, they turned up on time WOW!!!. Could have turned into a nightmare but the plumber turned up quickly, went straight to work and fixed the problem. He was very professional, polite and knowledgeable you cant ask for anything more than that. All charges were explained at the time of booking and then repeated by the plumber when he arrived.Can thoroughly recommend their service and will be using them again.
Approximate cost: $250.
Needed an old gas heater removed. Called Jims on a Tuesday evening and had a plumber out on the Wednesday morning. He was on time, efficient and friendly. Checked my gas line and found my oven/cooktop to be leaking. I'm in the process of replacing the cooking appliances but didn't know where to start! My current unit was capped and he advised me on how to go about replacing my appliances and the legal requirements I would need to factor in. Very happy with the service I received and would definitely recommend Jims Plumbing to everyone.
