Mr Kumar was very proactive and genuine in his profession. Others may just change the water heater tank n will leave but mr kumar informed that the flexible host is almost broken n it is dangerous. So he helped to change the flexible host to a stainless steel. He explained very patiently whenever i ask him questions. He was very warm n very helpful. He waited to make sure whether there is any leakage. I am very impressed for he knows what he is doing and also very patient and warm. Very good indeed. 👍

Chanced upon this seller on google map, 1st thing that caught my attention was the very high rating. Was looking for a replacement of my Joven storage heater that was leaking and short circuited. Contacted seller via whatsapp and made a booking, earliest appt 4 days away. Technician came on the dot as scheduled and replacement was completed in 1 hr. Paid cash upon completion. New 707 water heater is working fine so far, hope it can last.
