Chris is a miracle worker. Against all odds, he restored our woefully neglected and ancient Potterton to full working order. He is reliable, persistent, reasonable and cheerful. Another triumph for the W4 website.
Such a relief to have a quick and friendly person who diagnosed the problem and fixed it in 3 hours,including a trip to "Screw Fix", to buy parts.
He explained what he was doing and resolved the issue quickly and effectively.He was polite and courteous. Also really appreciated him taking the time to show me key things I could look out for if the problem reoccured. Would use this service again. Many thanks!
I was given Chris' number from a friend as we had no hot water. I was initially very impressed as he called me back within 10 minutes of me leaving a message. Then he was able to help me with a quick fix to enable me to have hot water until he came round the next morning. Again he called to let me know he was on his way. He was efficient and professional and provided us with useful advice on future maintenance. i would not hesitate to call him out again or to recommend him to friends.
Chris has been able to find and fix a quite difficult issue with the hot water in my house. I had had already three different engineers trying to find the problem with no success. Chris has been patient and wise enough to spot the cause of the issue.
My kitchen tap decided to misbehave, then finally give up the ghost. Chris came on the same day, diagnosed the problem, researched a new tap, went and got it, then put the new one in place. All very quick, tidy and at very short notice. Highly recommended.
Chris responded to my request to pop round to my flat to provide a quote for a new boiler as a British Gas Engineer had informed me that I needed a new replacement as the current one could not be fixed. Chris not only came round at the agreed time but also decided to have a look at the boiler, which he managed to fix! I cannot say how grateful I am to him for taking the time to see if he could fix it! I am more than delighted with the efficiency and prompt service provided by Chris but more so with his integrity to take the time to see if he could fix the boiler. Heating and hot water again! I cannot recommend Chris highly enough. He saved the day!!!
Chris from CJs Plumbing & Heating really really helped me out last Friday afternoon and I can't say how grateful I am nor how impressed. My tenant called me at 3.30pm on Friday to say there was a problem with the boiler and he had not hot water. Desperate not to leave him without hot water for the weekend I then spent an hour on the telephone, calling several plumbers I know and also working my way through the W4 website. The earliest I could get someone out was looking like the following Wednesday. I then got hold of Chris at about 4.30pm who said he could take a look on Monday given how close it was to the weekend - but when I then gave him the property address and he realised it was only a few streets away, he said he's pop round straight away and if an easy fix he'd sort it, otherwise would at least know the problem. He popped round within about 5 mins, immediately diagnosed a problem with the thermostat and re-set it. My tenant then had hot water and the problem has not returned. Amazing!
Chris came recommended by Sean W4 Handyman service. The only plumber to return my call to install my new mixer shower........ all the others couldn't be bothered. First rate service, I got to point the shower was a greater need then the cost. Turned up on time, also fitted in another job for me, well worth the money. Very pleasant, couldn't ask for better.
Called Chris when I noticed a small leak from my boiler (after Vaillant service). He very kindly popped in before another appt in the next street and quickly dealt with it. He has the same boiler so will always call him first if there's a problem. A very nice guy and much easier to deal with than Vaillant customer service
No heating or hot water on first cold day of winter! Called Chris and he tried to help on phone, then came the next day. He swiftly diagnosed the problem and fixed it. Diagnosing what's wrong is a real skill. In a lifetime of using plumbers and central heating engineers, it is a rare ability and much money and time is wasted with people who don't correctly identify what needs doing. Chris is reliable, polite, reasonably priced and very good at what he does. Highly recommended.
Great guy to deal with, polite, professional and on time, excellent value and highly reccomended.
We had a burst pipe that was spraying out water over the electrics under our stairs and so we'd had to turn off our water. Chris fitted us in to a busy day, coming out promptly and sorting it out quickly and efficiently, getting the water back on in our house in short time. Chris was great to deal with and all for a reasonable price.
Needed an urgent fix to a shower leak as selling house. I emailed Chris after working hours, he replied that night and came round before 10am for his standard charge out rate. I couldn't find the stop cock so he arranged for the water to be switched off in the road, spoke with the neighbours and fixed the leak and monitored the fix. He took time afterwards, without me asking to, to track down my shower model online in case I needed to order parts down the line, which was highly appreciated. Would definitely use again.
Found Chris on the W4 site, he came to look at my leaky radiator on his way home, luckily he lives nearby. Instead of quoting for a new radiator as previous plumber had, he said he could fix it with a simple part replacement.$0Spent a few minutes making sure the repair had worked. I would recommend him highly based on this first experience and intend using him to service my boiler from now on. It's good to find a local reliable tradesman.
Our boiler stopped working last week, and I called Chris. He came out the same day, fixed it, and showed me how to fix the problem if it happened again.$0The boiler may need a new pump in due course - but rather than simply doing that and charging for it, Chris has given us a cheaper workable solution. Very impressed - and when the pump does need changing, we'll definitely call Chris again.
He is great! I first used Chris in 2009/10 when he saved my boiler and entire system from an awful botch up job after a big maintaince company simply ripped me off and didn't solve the problem. Chris is straightforward - honest and reliable - he did a fantastically thorough job and everything worked perfectly for over 18 months - but I lost his contact number! FInally in Nov 2012 I tracked him down through the CW4 website when I had a pilot light failure and he (a) got my heating back within one working day (b) serviced the boiler within a realistic time frame after that . I recommned people call Chris in the summer so that he can set your systems right for the winter. He is qualifed and trustworthy.
Chris repaired a leaking pipe/valve quickly and efficiently and I give him five stars because: He went up to Wembley to get the necessary replacement valve when local suppliers were out of stock. He took the opportunity, whilst the system was drained down, to regenerate the air gap in the megaflow (necessary maintenance to the system) for me. He dried out the electric timer for the central heating , which had been penetrated by the dripping water and made it safe to use again. Considerations like this distinguish a helpful , decent and caring plumber from a " take your money and run " type .
Chris came out at very short notice to repair my lavatory cistern. Did a very good job, at very reasonable cost. Even called up a few days later to check everything was ok. Very pleasant person. Highly recommended

Chris responded at very short notice and expertly put right a leaking loo that had defeated less skilled and professional plumbers.Highly recommended.
Chris is reliable, knowledgeable and solves the problem quickly. Highly recommended
Following an issue of no hot water or heating Chris came to tackle my increasingly troublesome boiler. He was extremely punctual, v professional and had my boiler back up and running quickly. He explained what he was doing during each step which was appreciated. Strongly recommended.
Was recommended to Chris by another firm on the Chiswick list who felt that switching a shower pump would be more in his line. Indeed it was - he was very efficient and pleasant to deal with and I'd have no hesitation in saying that he even made the cost side as painless as possible
Used Chris to diagnose and repair our boiler after it stopped working suddenly over the weekend and we are happy with his work.$0$0$0$0He came around the same day as I called, and found the fault easily enough. He then drove to Hanger Lane to attempt to get a replacement part (it turned out to be the wrong part, but that was the shop's fault and he didn't charge us for the time). Once we sourced the part he came and fitted it and its working fine now. He even gave me advice on a simple job I could do myself, which I really appreciated.$0$0$0$0We would recommend him.
I will say up front Chris is a neighbour however prior to locating his company on the Gas Safe web site I had not met him. I found him to be very helpful, agreeing to source all the necessary materials required, he provided three various options and costings, as I was unsure what type of tank I required. He works quick and to time - a professional I have no hesitation in recommend him.
Chose Chris from good comments on forum, was not disappointed. He (unlike some) was totally prepared to advise the precise problem with our boiler as opposed to just saying it is old, so we could make our own decision on risk and whether to splash out just yet. Notwithstanding his quote/recommendations for a replacement were also very good. The repairs Chris completed have put our boiler back to 100% working order, were undertaken efficiently and at considerably less cost than a replacement. Many thanks.
The pilot light on our Ariston boiler was failing to ignite, all resets etc also not working. Chris happened to be available on the day I called him (got the contact details from this site), and within two hours of arriving he had sourced the faulty part, fixed the boiler, repaired a leak in another part of the boiler that had been around for a few weeks, and pointed me to where I could get the power switch replacement (light had gone). Very relieved that this didn't end up as just a "replace the boiler its a bit old" situation. Very impressed with the service.
Chris came to service our boiler. His service was excellent, punctual, very knowledgeable, explaining all along the things he was doing. Transparent pricing. Would recommend him warmly.
Chris has fixed several plumbing problems for me over the lastfew years and he is the first plumber I would call as he always turns upon time, explains what needs to be done and works quickly and efficiently.
Following a less than satisfactory service from another well known local plumber called Chris for a 2nd opinion - he quickly diagnosed the problem & within a couple of hours had our central heating up and running. Then, as agreed, he came back a week later to drain the whole system and fit some new valves. Really recommend CJ's - he comes when he says he will, he tells you how much its going to cost and he then just gets on and does the job without any hassle - perfect!
Chris came swiftly today to fix our boiler. He identified the problem went to get the part, came back and fitted it, all within 2 hours. He arrived within 20 minutes of our phone call. Good job. Would recommend.
Who do you call when your boiler stops working, its freezing outside and you have just had a new baby? Chris of course. He came that morning, swiftly identified the problem, did a temporary fix to get the radiators on when he went out to collect a part and had it all working again within a couple of hours. Excellent work - well done Chris for providing a efficient and professional service.
I contacted Chris to come to quote for replacing some corroded central heating pipes and replacing an immersion heater. He got back to me swiftly and after comparing prices with those of another plumber we decided to use Chris. We were very satisfied with the work and the fact that the eventual price came in under what had been quoted. I would definitely use Chris again if we have any more plumbing problems.
We came back from a holiday on New Year's day to find that our boiler was not working. I contacted Chris who rang back within the hour and arrived at 9am the next day (Sat), as arranged. The cost of the job was very reasonable. I would definitely use him again and I have no hesitation in recommending him.
Chris came between Christmas and New Year when hardly anyone was working and got our Keston boiler working after 5 days without heating, he came back the next day to check all was still functioning. A great service and Highly recommended.
Chris came and fixed our boiler today and I would highly recommend him. He managed to schedule a visit to us within 2 hours of my call, arrived when promised and fixed the problem within an hour, as well as providing some useful advice regarding future maintenance. The price was reasonable and the overall service excellent. Highly recommended, Steve Hadaway
We had a serious leak from a faulty tap under the kitchen sink and at one point the kitchen was flooded. I rang C.J's and Chris arrived within the hour and fixed the problem without delay. The cost of the job was very resonable. I recommend Chris highly and would not hesitate to call him again.
I found Chris on ChiswickW4 and followed the recommendations. He was brilliant, available, amenable, courteous and efficient. If only all plumbers were this way!
A lovely guy- I called Chris when I was having a problem with my heating - ha was able to come that day and didn't charge me anything at all as I only needed a simple adjustment. He was prompt, friendly and professional.
Fast efficient service. Promptly dealt with all problems.
Called Chris in the morning and he came around the same day. Capped off an open gas fire and fitted a stopcock to the gas hob in order to comply with the requirements of the landlords gas certificate. He was also very helpful in suggesting possible options for other work that needs to be done. Quick, friendly, explained what he was doing and why. I'll definitely use Chris again.
Chris came to fix a faulty CH boiler. A few days later it stopped again. He came round, spend a lot of time but couldn't fix it. He came round again, with another idea, still no luck, eventually he diagnosed the fault- after all these visits, he didnt charge me at all, and contacted me a few days later to check all was well. Great dedication & perseverence!
Having tried 2 other local plumbers/boiler specialists, Chris was able to come round quickly, see the (not so straightforward problems), fix them and be reasonably priced! He went to get parts locally, and was back in a jiffy! He was friendly, knowledgeable and absolutely excellent! Would definately use him again and recommend him!
I contacted Chris about my loo as I had been let down by another plumber. He arrived promptly, did the job in no time and charged less than the quote provided by the guy who let me down. I would highly recommend.
Chris was excellent, very good value, friendly without being timewasting - A real find!
We first rang a busy Chris at midday, and by 4pm, he had cleared a very blocked and very inaccessible pipe, had plumbed in a new washing machine and had ensured that all was leak-free. We found him flexible and skilled, and his rates reasonable, and would definitely call on him again.
Having experienced a couple of "emergency" leak situations recently - I can highly recommend Chris. He came round promptly, explained clearly as to how the leaks had been caused, fixed them and advise what to look out for in future. I would use him again.
Chris came to look at my boiler and was polite, punctual and honest - it turned out that the boiler was in perfect working order but I had accidently closed off the gas supply to it! It was very reassuring to know that there are genuine, honest companies around who don't con you you into buying parts that aren't needed. I will definitely be using him to service the boiler in the future.
