Plumbing Services FAQs
We can install brand new appliances as long as they’re still in the box. But, if it’s removed from the box or is second-hand, unfortunately, we won’t be able to help.
This is because we don’t know if second-hand appliances are in perfect working order. The last thing we want to do is install a faulty gas stovetop. If you do purchase a new item and need some assistance from Upside Down, keep it in the box!
You might be thinking why you need a plumber for fridge, dishwasher or washing machine installation. Well, it’s because you may need some new pipes installed, taps replaced, or water outlets extended.
For example, if your new fridge has a water or ice dispenser, you might need a direct water supply. A plumber can extend your current plumbing and safely connect your fridge during installation.
