    cost of hiring a plumber to fix a leaky shower head in Manchester


    I am based in Manchester and I’d like to have a leaky shower fixed. It’s a mixer shower and it appears that the leak is not major or with the pipes, that is. The leak seems to be an issue with the shower itself. I’d like to hire a plumber to fix this problem. How much might this cost? Does it depend on what type of issue is present? How long might the job take to fix it? Also, should I hire a plumber to come out and take a look first?

    Unfortunately with my many years of experience there are not many really good plumbers out there today.
    If possible try and get a referral from someone you trust. If not use one of these type sites so that you have registered tradesman at your disposal."

    "Hi. Your best getting a plumber in that doesnt charge a call out so you can get some free advice on the matter. Ic the shower is leaking, rather than repairing the old one it’s ptobably going to be cheaper for you to just change the mixer valve but having said that it could just be a faulty washer which is very cheap to buy. Please get a no call out plumber in and take it from there. Hope that helps."

    yes plumber

    "If the leak is coming from the shower itself it must be the shower cartridge but in most cases it’s cheaper and more cost effective to just change the mixer valve"
