    "I have had renovations done to a room in my house, after 13 months of chasing up a builder and a plumber, Tricklebanks have been a welcome relief. Ian came to give a quote to remove a gas appliance, he arrived on time sent the quote, and organised a time for the work to be done. This morning, the work was done, again the worker arrived on time did the job , and cleaned up. I would confidently and happily use this firm again. "

    "I got a quote from this company, and I had my household plumbing installed by Tricklebank Plumbing in September 2014, by two employees of this company. They came the first day, and there were two of them. The second day they were to come, they didn\'t turn up, and when I rang I was told that they weren\'t coming that day.
    They came the day after, and it was just one worker.
    There was a third day also, with one worker.
    So, if you calculate that, there is a maximum number of hours that could possibly have been done. 32.

    I was charged for 42 hours.

    This was dropped down to 38 hours upon inquiry.

    After installation, a leak erupted from the hot water pipe to the shower, inside the wall.

    I removed the wall lining, destroying it in the process. The hot water ran all under my new floor boards.

    The worker, came and tightened the nut that had not been tightened. No offer was made to replace the wall lining. I put the wall lining back up in pieces.

    The toilet cistern was leaking into the bowl. The worker noticed this upon installation, and pointed it out, but did not fix it.

    This leak has caused the pump to activate every few minutes, and it has continued to leak to this day (25 September 2015). I have had to keep the toilet tap turned off permanently, and turn it on every time I want to fill the cistern.

    I moved into the property late February 2015. Upon completing my first shower, I walked out to a flooded floor.

    Ring plumber again, remove already wrecked wall lining, and this time Mike Tricklebank himself came to fix it. A cold pipe that had not been clamped properly.

    I continued to find leaks, in total six leaks. Most of which I was able to fix myself.

    But the pump continued to come on every hour or so.

    A plumber from the company came but could not find a leak.

    Then I discovered the inlet pipe to the pump had a leak. This was four weeks ago.

    I rang Tricklebanks when I found it. My calls were ignored.

    I had to resort to turning off the pump permanently and resort to buckets to fill the cistern, and bottled water to wash hands.

    I only turn on the pump when I have a shower or want to wash the dishes.

    I rang two weeks ago, and got hold of Mike. He arranged to come today to fix the pump inlet pipe leak and the toilet.

    I have lived for the past month out of buckets and bottles of water, while waiting for this issue to be fixed.

    At 4.30pm today, he had not come. I rang, and was told that he had gone away for the weekend in the other direction.

    I advised the receiver of the call that I am now going to put in an official complaint to the Master Plumbers\' Association.

    I\'ve had enough and I\'m fed up.


    They are unreliable, their workmanship is questionable and they do will let you linger.

    Hi all, after laying a complaint to the Master Plumbers\' and Gas Fitters association, about the work done on my property by Tricklebank Plumbing of Feilding, and their shoddy workmanship and repeated failures to communicate and fix the problems, and after leaving me hanging for an entire year trying to get these things resolved, and living out of buckets for the final month, (yes - an entire month), the local Manawatu Master Plumbers\' Association president, Vince Basile Plumbing Co Ltd, responded within 12 hours of the receipt of the complaint and it was fixed incredibly promptly and with complete professionalism. Tricklebank Plumbing of Feilding, have had their membership to the MP&G Association cancelled. Thank you to Vince Basile and the Master Plumbers\' Association. DO NOT USE TRICKLEBANK PLUMBING. Their work is substandard and their follow up and fixing of problems with their work is very poor.
