My name is George Manning, I run a small independent plumbing and heating company based in Brighton. I specialise in boiler breakdown repairs, servicing and installations. I offer a special service for Vaillant boiler repairs and servicing and as Vaillant advance installer I can upgrade the manufacturers warranty to 5 and 7 years, on the ecoTEC pro and plus respectively. Based in Preston Park in Brighton I cover the whole greater Brighton and Hove area including surrounding areas of sussex.

My Experience and Qualifications

I originally trained and worked in London for 7 years, I went through the ‘time served’ apprenticeship route to become fully qualified. I carried out work for private homeowners, Landlords and letting agents in London and most notably gained a contract to carry out all central heating and boiler repairs for a major North London housing association. I have repaired thousands of boilers and heating systems over the past decade, and pride myself on having a very high initial diagnosis success rate. Although I specialise in repairing Vaillant boilers of all ages, I also have experience repairing boilers from all manufacturers from the past 30 years.

Core VAlues

My business model is based on honesty and quality of service. I strive to give a professional friendly service that is rarely found in trades. I look after my loyal returning customers by giving them extra discounts and special rates on services. Attention to detail is key to my installation process, I believe my standard of workmanship is the best available.

    5 star review  If you want careful, attentive, thoughtful, professional service then George Manning is the plumber for you. George has just installed two bathrooms for us - and they look terrific - as well as replacing two ageing radiators. He is courteous, helpful, efficient, clean and tidy and a pleasure to have around. I wouldn't consider calling anyone else now. Thank you George.

    5 star review  I needed some work doing on an electric water heater. I knew what was needed as my father in law works with the systems. Called a few places who were very happy to try and rip me off or do unnecessary work. I rang George who listened and asked a few questions that made me realise he knew exactly what I needed. Gave a very reasonable quote for the service. He also said he would order the part that I probably needed before seeing the system, just to make the process faster. We agreed a date, and he contacted me before to confirm. He arrived to do the work. Exceptionally professional and polite. He completed the service and replaced the part in a very short period of time. He then talked me through the usage and explained features I didn't know it had! Totally recommended and I will definitely call him again

  • 5 star review  I'm really happy with George's conscientiousness and attention to detail. Some unexpected difficulties came up on the job, and George was thorough in problem solving them in a calm, intelligent, good natured way. He's been clear with his explanation of how our new central system works, and has reassured is that if we have any issues to give him a call. Great customer care. I absolutely recommend him.

    5 star review  Simply can't rate George highly enough. Our old unvented pressure cylinder had to be changed after springing a leak, and I needed someone quickly to help us. Luckily I found George. This was not a small job, and he was brilliant throughout. He came to have a look the evening I called him, and was able to fit us in as it was an emergency. He worked so hard the entire time, and removed the old (enormous) one and replaced it with a much superior new one. You can tell his quality of work is very good, and he explains everything that he is doing, so you know what's going on. Out of all the plumbers we have had over the years both in Brighton and elsewhere, George simply beats them all. We found him to be honest, hardworking, punctual and also importantly pleasant to have around the house. He is definitely now our plumber going forwards!
