We are local. Being based in Caversham and plumbing only in Caversham, Henley & Reading our plumbers will get to you quickly and within 15 minutes with normal traffic. And one thing’s for sure, we certainly won’t get stuck on the M4, A329, A33 or A4.
Any unexpected, urgent or potentially dangerous situation with your home’s plumbing and water system that you can’t fix – and poses an immediate risk to your property or family’s health is an emergency and needs to be taken care of right away.
Our local emergency plumbers in Caversham specialise in fixing burst and leaking pipes. A pipe break can happen suddenly and unexpectedly, at any time day or night. And can burst anywhere with water pouring through floors, soaking through walls – damaging your home’s structure.
We’ve seen fallen/collapsed ceilings, plaster peeling from walls, ruined carpets, buckled wooden flooring, swollen and warped furniture and broken electricals – TV’s, cookers and fridges etc.
We’ve also seen water flowing from light fixtures! If this happens, immediately turn off the electricity to the affected area at the consumer unit – not just at the switch, and then call a plumber.
Your priority must be the safety of the people in the property. Always.
Other plumbing emergencies we regularly help with include:
“plumber near me”
“plumber in my area”
“local expert plumber”
Helping homeowners quickly – emergency plumbing is an important part of our business. Much of our work though, is day to day plumbing, and plumbing that needs to be done, but not right there and then or on the day.
And you’ll find lots of examples of how our “near me plumbers” can help on our CanWeHelp? page. In the meantime, we thought you’d like to know the things our customers regularly ask us to do:
Install and replace kitchen sinks, free up slow draining sinks, unclog blocked sinks and sinks filled with standing water, fix sink overflows, fit new pop-up drains, replace dripping and leaking under sink pipes and traps through to plumbing in washing machines, dishwashers, waste disposal units and ice making fridges.
Fix and fit all sorts of taps from mixers to spindles and ball to quarter turn ceramic cartridge. We also fit new easy turn ball stop-taps to replace old fashioned stopcocks or stop taps that need to be tested regularly and have a habit of jamming just when there’s an emergency or you need to turn off the water supply.
Put in new baths, wash basins, showers and shower trays and help to design dream bathrooms and wet rooms. And when blockages do invariably occur, we free up and unclog shower, basin and bath pipes and drains.
Install and service heat pumps and unvented cylinders, fit radiators, free-up and unblock radiators that aren’t heating up and fix leaking radiators. We also change old radiator valves if they’re sticking or leaking and put in thermostatic and smart ones to give complete heating control and a fully zoned home. And yes, we also MagnaCleans powerflush to supercharge central heating and cut heating bills.
Unblock toilets, replace toilet siphons, fit new flush valves and flush handles, fix leaking toilet pipes (we’re leak repair specialists) and wastes and put in completely new toilet suites – even in lofts and basements.
Fit water softeners as well as water conditioners – preventing limescale and mineral corrosion.
Put in and insulate new garden taps as well as fit misters to keep cool and sprinkler systems to keep gardens green and blooming. And fit and clear gutters and guttering on garden rooms, outhouses, garages and sheds.

“When I called Angus Plumbing they talked me through turning off the water to stop any further water damage. The plumber was at my door in less than 20 minutes and cut out and replaced the leaking copper pipe.
Before he started he made sure I took some pictures of the carpet and floor for the insurance. He also cleaned up the flood with a wetvac which was great – didn’t know that you can hoover up water!
Whenever I need a plumber – I’ll give Paul at AngusPlumbing a ring. He was great.”
“I found Angusplumbing.co.uk on google and booked a video estimate using BookNow on their website.
Paul gave me a fixed price which was good and arrived on time and sorted out the leaking washroom tap there and then. He also gave me a good quote for some new bathroom taps which I’ve asked him to fit when I’m working from home next week.
Good service from a local business. Highly recommended”.
AngusPLUMBING serviced my Megaflow hot water cylinder.
It was great that I was able to book them on-line with their BookNow service. The engineer gave me a quick call before he arrived (on-time) to make sure that it was still convenient. He was very friendly and took the time to talk me though how the cylinder works and what to look out for if there are problems.
I’ll definitely use them again – very trustworthy. And always good to see a successful local Caversham business.”

As a nation we must really like our bathrooms and toilets! The average person spends five minutes six times a day in the WC. This works out as 210 minutes or 3.5 hours a week and 10,920 minutes a year. With Caversham life expectancy 82-ish years, there’s a good chance that over this time you’ll take 895,440 minutes which is 622 days or 1.7 years WC-ing. Luckily we have some local plumbers!
Albert Einstein apparently said “that if he had to do it all over again, he’d become a plumber”. As a result of this the Plumbers and Steamfitters Union in Washington, DC, made him an honorary member and a New York plumbers’ local union gave him a set of gold-plated plumbers’ tools. Wonder what the World would look like now if Albert was a local plumber, plumbing in Caversham Henley & Reading?
Ever seen a plumber bite their fingernails? Bet that you never will!
