Tony Charles from Ottery St Mary , September 21, 2017
Hayden came out on a Saturday afternoon, following a recommendation, when I had a real plumbing problem. He fixed it temporarily and then went on to finish off the job a while later. Hayden is friendly, helpful and efficient.
Ralph Dyke from Ottery-St-Mary , September 10, 2017
Hayden has provided me a great deal of advice in the past and is most knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his trade. Just a service on a tank and boiler this time but as always Hayden turned up exactly when he said, as indeed he has always done. I have no reservation in recommending Hayden for all your plumbing requirements.
JOHN from EAST DEVON , September 4, 2017
Good communication,sourced shower mixer ok,and work was clean and tidy.
Down side was limited choice of mixer offered.
Charged a full hour for max.15mins work.
Talked longer, than doing the job.
I am a pensioner and expected to be charged less.
However after complaining ,the bill was reduced to the actual time spent on the work.
Owner's reply

Hayden is very open and transparent about his competitive pricing structure, which reflects living in a low wage and high retirement area, with many positive client reviews stating on our website his charges are very reasonable.

This structure has a fixed labour price for the first hour or any part of, to reflect business costs associated with attending small jobs across East Devon, enabling him to attend to work other tradespeople won't even respond to.

Hayden is open to fitting shower mixers sourced directly by customers, but when requested to supply, as in this instance, prefers to source products from local trade merchants where he can be confident of their quality and also in the returns, replacement and warranty process, protecting you the customer.

It is our understanding that previous to the work itself there was a lot of email dialogue and time spent in researching and sourcing an appropriate product, which helped keep the works involved in its replacement to a minimum.

It's worth noting that other plumbing works had been completed for this customer on two previous occasions and that the later reduction in the electronically automated invoice was applied to reflect this relationship.

The four stars applied to the review by the customer suggests that overall they were happy with the service supplied. We have every confidence that Hayden works incredibly hard to keep his customers happy - which is reflected in the high numbers of positive reviews he has on this website!

Jo from Ottery St Mary , August 24, 2017
We are delighted with the service provided by Hayden - his advice and the standard of his work are excellent. He is clearly very knowledgeable and gave us an honest assessment of our situation and various alternatives which was really helpful. The work he has done in fitting a new shower and fixing our boiler with a view to ensuring that it is protected from repeating the same problem is great. We wouldn't hesitate to contact Hayden with any plumbing issues and recommend his service.
Michael from Sidmouth , August 16, 2017
Hayden was very helpful before we decided to go for a water softener, explaining everything and demonstrating things where possible. The fitting of the system was not easy yet it was done with little fuss and done extremely well......a very neat job.. I would definitely recommend The Little Plumbing Company.
Bob Marston from Newton Poppleford, Devon , July 24, 2017
I have been pleased with the quality of Hayden's work, and his excellent advice.

I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone,
Celia Cockett from Exmouth , July 14, 2017
We were delighted to have contacted Hayden to deal with our problem kitchen tap. He brought along 3 different new ones to choose from which meant we were sorted that very day. We found him to be polite and considerate and very professional. We would definitely recommend The Little Plumbing Company.
Heather Bewick from Sidmouth , July 12, 2017
I called out Hayden from the Little Plumbing Company when my boiler unexpectedly broke down. He correctly diagnosed that I needed a new circuit board and gave me some good advice about the next steps.
Thank you
Paula Roberts from Sidmouth, Devon , July 7, 2017
The Little Plumbing Co. Have just completed works at my cottage .. I am currently living in Cyprus so it had been very difficult finding someone reliable who could complete the works needed and that would actually trust that I would pay them( being at such a distance can sometime be a problem to trades professionals) Hayden has kept me informed of the progress and even sent me a photo of the completed work which I didn't ask for.

I will definitely be using them again !

Good plumbing service is difficult to find in Debon because of the demand
You won't be disappointed .
Bonney from Exmouth , July 2, 2017
This was the third time Hayden had helped with plumbing work at my father's house and, as always, we were extremely happy with his work. He is professional and friendly and was extremely helpful with his expertise, enabling good decisions to be made. I would not hesitate to recommend The Little Plumbing Company if you are looking for a trustworthy plumber and a nice person to do the work.
Mrs Fisher from Lympstone , July 1, 2017
It is hard to find a reliable plumber to do small but essential jobs these days.
Hayden is willing and very able which is a real joy to encounter.
He swiftly dealt with 2 problem loo cisterns.
I have now asked him to complete the annual service of my central heating boiler.
Thank you Hayden.
I can truly recommend him.

Thoroughly recommended.
Dave Hart from Ottery St Mary , June 21, 2017
After a week of trying to get a plumber and being let down Hayden came to the rescue. He replied to my enquiry which was a first. He offered to help in a couple of days and he came when he said he would.
The job was done quickly and everything was left tidy, what more can you ask for.
I will be sure to call the Little plumbing company first next time I need a plumber.

Haydon was quick to come. He explained repair and fixed it for me speedily

I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
Mike Bull from Woodbury, Exeter , May 16, 2017
Hayden responded to our request very quickly and returned to do the job of laying a new gas pipe from the meter to the kitchen within a week. He and his mate Paul worked hard all day and restored everything to rights when they left.
Not only were they efficient, but also very pleasant.
We would recommend The Little Plumbing Company to anyone needing work done well and quickly.

Highly recommended!

Jo Cunningham from Sidmouth , March 23, 2017
Hayden put right some bad plumbing that had left us with a slow leak behind the shower in our holiday cottage. He's a good communicator, keeping us informed throughout and sending photos of the work. While he was there he spotted a separate problem with the cistern and sorted that out for us too. His rates were reasonable and he'll be our first port of call for any future plumbing needs.

Excellent service. Quick response to initial enquiry and sensible price. Will use him again.

Great service, excellent value and would not hesitate to recommend.
Mr P. Harris from Sidmouth , February 27, 2017
How refreshing to find a plumber who returns calls, charges very fair prices and is personable whilst doing the job. Hayden serviced our boiler and gave a diagnosis of a faulty to be investigated under manufacture's warranty by others. Will definitely use again and recommend on.
A. Crawford from NEAR EXETER , February 24, 2017
Haydon was very informative and gave prompt, efficient and courteous service. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company.
Phil Toop from SIDMOUTH , February 21, 2017
Called Hayden out with an emergency when we sprang a leak in the loft. He was quick to respond and arranged to call as soon as he was free. Called promptly and resolved the problem along with a second undiagnosed issue. All work done with a minimum of fuss and at a very reasonable price.
Richard Griffith from Honiton , February 7, 2017
Hayden fitted a new shower alongside two very good carpenters. This shower had been leaking for years and had caused severe wood rot and damage underneath. He gave consolidated advice about the correct units to purchase and I didn't listen to him first time around. I should have because I ended up having to get him to purchase what he advised in the first place. Great job. He is thorough, knowledgeable, and probably the best plumber around. Very fair on pricing. He also fixed my gas boiler which two other plumbers had failed to fix (one had visited four times). No wonder he's so busy!!
Ian McCulloch from Sidmouth , January 25, 2017
A very good job (tap replacement). Hayden arrived exactly as expected and was most efficient and tidy. He had previously explained the cost, which was very reasonable, and we were very pleased with the job.

Would most definitely use the Little Plumbing Company again.
Mark Collings from Exmouth , January 24, 2017
I needed to arrange some plumbing repairs for my Father, and Hayden was excellent. To start with, he was the only plumber gracious enough to reply to me. On the day, he was prompt, polite, clear on the work needing to be done and the likely costs. I also had some less urgent work - Hayden was patient enough to talk me through the options so I could make an informed decision. Great work.
Adrian Burn from Sidmouth , January 19, 2017
The installation was handled exceptionally well even though we were not present, Kept us informed regarding progress though out the day.
The final result was a very very impressive. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone
Alison Carr from West Hill, Ottery St Mary , January 16, 2017
We needed a couple of minor repairs - a toilet flush valve/overflow and a pipe joint that needed re-soldering. Having been stung by a larger plumbing company which sent us a large bill and didn't actually fix anything, we were wondering what was in store for us. We needn't have worried. Hayden was brilliant. Despite being busy, he got us all fixed up within days. He was polite, helpful and knowledgeable. We will definitely use him again and would recommend him to others.
David Johnson from Sidmouth , January 14, 2017
Hayden is very prompt, efficient and reliable; he does a very good job for a fair price. Courteous and understanding towards his customers - highly recommended.
Mr Robert Prescott from Exmouth , January 10, 2017
We had a problem with our upstairs loo and called Hayden fairly early on the Monday morning. Although he was busy, he found time to come the same day and we were soon "back to normal" Here is a man, very personable, who knows his trade and his prices are fair for his expertise. I would have no hesitation at all in recommending this friendly and professional Company to anyone. We will certainly use him again should the need arise
John Clay from Sidmouth , November 16, 2016
Excellent work, Hayden really cares about the job in hand, a rare thing these days. Would not hesitate to recommend.
glyn Jones from Sidmouth , November 14, 2016
Answered the request I left on his answer phone that same day. Very knowledgeable about his trade and asked all the right questions to fully understand what I wanted - gave me confidence in choosing him to undertake a difficult job. Done one small job at present at a very reasonable price. Have agreed his provisional estimate for a bigger plumbing job and will definitely use Little Plumbing in the future and recommend to all my friends.
Julie Alexander from Woodbury , November 11, 2016
Very pleased with the work done! Hayden answered my call promptly, and came out when he said he would! He asked lots of questions beforehand so knew what the job involved before he came out (and I also sent some photos). This helped get the job done quickly - (one visit with all the right parts etc) and was much appreciated! He was very competent and professional and had a very good understanding of plumbing. His bill was very fair I thought. I wouldn't hesitate to call on him again and only wish he fitted bathrooms!
Andy Dowden from Clyst St.Mary , November 1, 2016
Excellent service. Great Job and competitive price.
Andrew Beshaw from Apsley , October 28, 2016

Hayden Bolton did a couple of small plumbing jobs for me recently and provided a first class service at reasonable cost. He was extremely courteous and polite and quickly resolved the problems that I had, I will definitely contact him again if I have plumbing related problems in future and would certainly recommend him to others who value good service.
