Testimonial from Plumbworld
"We are approached all the time to sell new products including several "how to" Plumbing DVD's. Matey's Basic Plumbing is the first DVD product we have agreed to stock.

The content is comprehensive and well explained and the video production is very professional. We are happy to recommend "Matey's Basic Plumbing" to anyone wanting to carry out plumbing tasks around the home. It costs far less than an hours time from a plumber (if you can even find a plumber!) and after watching it you could easily save yourself hundreds of pounds a year."

5 causes for concern

Many people believe that they could complete simple plumbing jobs for themselves if only they could see how these jobs were carried out.


And when you consider the following 5 facts, it is no surprise that some people are already attempting the basic jobs themselves;

  • £130 an hour
    Which? Magazine recently carried out a survey on the prices that plumbers were charging and the results showed that the public were being charged up to £130 an hour, for the simplest of jobs.

  • Shoddy work to be expected
    An article in the Telegraph reported that the plumbing industry has been saturated with new plumbers and expects a rise in shoddy work as new trainees start up in business.

  • Plumbing courses "seriously flawed"
    The Chief executive of the Association of Plumbing and Heating Contractors is reported to have said that the two week fast track plumbing courses are "seriously flawed".

  • 2012 Olympic construction
    The CITB predict that 24,000 tradesmen and women will be needed to complete the construction of the many sites for the Olympics.

  • Paying people who know little more than yourselves
    When you consider all these facts, it seems like you will soon be paying large fees to people who know little more than yourselves for simple jobs.
