Continuous Hot Water System

W. L. Chivers Plumbing are always friendly, reliable and deliver good quality in their work. We would recommend them to anybody. We have been using these plumbers for our plumbing needs over the past 8 years since we first bought our home, and we have NEVER been disappointed.
Today, they installed our new Continuous Hot Water System, and once again, they have done a FANTASTIC job.

Terracotta Sewer Repair

Daniel and Kyle repaired our old terracotta sewer by relining the pipe. They used the latest equipment and tech and caused minimal disruption. I can highly recommend W L Chivers and will definitely call them next time I need a plumber.

Very fast response

Excellent work. Very fast emergency response. Efficient. Clear communication. Quote was accurate, reasonable and honored. Came out same night at 7pm to do quote, then ordered parts and came back to complete the job at 11am next day. Extremely happy. They left the house clean and tidy, taking rubbish with them. The work done was supply and install pan collar rubber to stop toilet leaking and changing a toilet seat. Highly recommend Jordan and Mitch.

Highly recommended

Chivers Plumbing came highly recommended to me by my Body Corporate Manager following significant damage to my house caused by another plumbing service. Mitchell diagnosed and fixed the job quickly at a good price, high standard and in a very pleasant & professional manner. Will use again.

Burst Pipe Repaired

I called Chivers Plumbing and Mitch was able to arrive at the property same day and within the agreed time frame. Mitch was friendly and up front with the costs of the job, and he was able to quickly identify the issue. There was a burst pipe in the front yard. He promptly completed the job within 20-30 mins and everything was resolved

Complete sewer replacement

Very professional crew all the way from Jordan down to the apprentice they treat your place as if it was theirs. Really happy with my big job - a complete sewer replacement under house and full trench across the yard.

Go-to Plumbers

Sewage blockage: Mitchell today did a great job, gave honest appraisal & clear explanation of the problem which he fixed & we have a forward plan for future maintenance over future years which we greatly appreciate. I heard about Chivers years ago from a friend. I now know why they were so highly recommended. They'll now be my "go to" plumbers always, for all jobs.
