    Terrible. Called due to blocked drains on a Friday night -asked for $175 which I paid. Came out and said that drains blocked need to clean them. Pretended to clean but said no have to pull toilet apart which they broke. Left and came back Saturday with new toilet - installed and all up charged $1000. 3 weeks later drains blocked. Called them back and asked for $275 to come out as it was a Saturday evening and $600 to clean drains again. RIP OFF. DO NOT USE THESE GUYS.

    Don’t use these guys from the magnet they put in your mailbox in Melbourne. Had a blocked toilet, called on a Saturday 7am to book for later that afternoon. I get a call saying they could come earlier but I wasn’t going to be home that why I booked it for the afternoon. Then the plumber decided not to even turn up. The landline number lady just said ‘oh that job was cancelled, someone should have told you’ it was 5.30pm by this stage. Then said they could get someone out but would have to charge an out of hours call out fee. Ummm no, your plumber didn’t turn up why should I get charged?! Safe to say I dodged a bullet!

    Bad from beginning to end. Problem wasn't in my house even, he went straight to the high water jet for a ridiculous amount and didnt even rod beforehand. Couldn't find the boundary trap (which is easily found through an app that you download on your phone), just passed the buck.I'm ringing Consumer Affairs. DO NOT USE

    I used them for a Saturday evening emergency- Very loud noises and vibrations and tap wouldn't stop running. They would only come out if I prepaid $255 -which I did
    - on spot said it would cost $3500 to repair and DIDN'T turn off tap said would fix it on Monday- had to do it myself via You tube!!

    Caller: Plumbing Detectives telephone (03) 9988 1680 Please do not USE this number - mail a fridge magnet

    Charged $945 for working less than an hour and a half - highly unethical.
    That is more money than I earn in a WEEK.

    Plumber first went to wrong address and tried to give a quote for the job without having any idea what the problem would be as would first have to bash a hole in the plasterboard to ascertain what was wrong - was actually a tiny leak, easily repaired and quickly done - left hole in the plasterboard and said to get a plasterer!

    Could not fix drainage problem in bathroom sink. (later fixed by handy man friend for free!) Charged old pensioner $378.50 and destroyed antique chair by spilling a black caustic liquid on it. No response from Plumbing Detectives!!
