“I totally would recommend Mr Fixit services to anyone. We’ve had a problem with electricity at our home – on Friday evening one of the safety switches tripped and the whole house went dark. Can you imagine how frustrating it is to be without electricity, especially on the weekend. Saturday afternoon I called Mr Fixit (I previously tried several other service providers, but all of them couldn’t help us on the weekend). Actually I was almost out of hope. Once I’ve called them they reassured me that they would help, and one of the specialists – Fuad – arrived at our place just 1+ hour after our call. He quickly fixed the electricity issue and our weekend was saved. I find their service very professional, prompt and patient (we’ve bombarded Fuad with quite a few questions about other minor electrical problems at our house and he patiently checked all of them and answered all the questions). Thanks a lot, Mr Fixit for the great service!” – Artem Ivanenko
“Excellent service by Fuad. Fuss-free and punctual. Would definitely call Mr Fixit for further repairs in the future.” – Shahirah M Mustafa
“Mr. FixIt fix just about everything. Highly recommended!” – Sham Nasaar
“Had a bad choke in the common bathroom causing a flow back of foul stuff into the shower area. Mr Yeo picked up my call & we arranged for an appt within 2 hrs. I had explained my situation & what I had already attempted to do. He was then able to determine & prepare additional gear to help solve my problem. The first thing he managed to do was to clear the choke and flush/rinse down the toilet. He was however still not satisfied with the outflow and attempted to investigate the blockage. However, that proved a little more challenging and eventually, we agreed to monitor the situation for the time being. Thank you, Mr Yeo. I would highly recommend his services. ” – Arthur Chuang
“Mr Yeo the plumber is most helpful and will quote a reasonable charge … my flat is old and Mr Yeo went the extra mile to provide good service and excellent workmanship, be it simple tap replacement or troubleshooting water issues caused by an old flat. Will definitely seek him out in future. ” – Heng Choy Yuen
“Fast response and meticulous to the job! Had engaged their service twice this year. Thanks for solving my plumbing issues.” – Eveling Peck

“Jerry is very polite and courteous. His work is fast and professional. It is easy to get in contact with him, share information regarding the issues and he comes well prepared to solve them. For us, he is the first plumber, in around 15 years, who actually repaired a kitchen instead of just replacing it. Kudos to his environment and wallet-friendly work. While he was at our place we asked him to do an additional job (not discussed while fixing his appointment) and he graciously obliged. I can confidently refer his services to my friends. Thanks, Keep it up, Jerry.” – Leena Joseph
“Found this plumber online with good reviews and he is indeed an excellent choice!! Had a choke toilet bowl as my maid dropped a bathroom hook and flushed it in. Tried over 4 days and unable to clear the partial choke. SMS Jerry and I already had a good impression of him. He replied he will try his best and what equipment he is going to try with (same as what I googled online). Price was given to me as well which is reasonable. He attended to me later in the day. A young chap who is smiley, courteous and humble fixed my problem with a correct tool in less than 1 minute!! Other plumbers cannot solve over 30mins and only wants to open and remove the toilet bowl. Since he is so efficient, asked hi to help me with a very minor sink leak at the pipe. The small problem took 30mins and I can see no shortcuts, work properly carried out using proper tools with no signs of frustration you get from other handymen. Pricing wasn’t expensive at all and in fact cheaper than many others!! He bothered to clean up my toilet after his work thou I told him no need to as I’m going to wash. Highly recommended to get Jerry for your plumbing works!!! Profession, efficient and inexpensive.” – Frankie Tan
“Had clogged drainage in the bathroom for which we reached out to Jerry. He showed up at our place on time, assessed the issue and explained to us the possible cause along with how he was going to fix it. He did an excellent job in fixing the clogged drain (in less than 5 minutes, I must add!). Overall, Jerry was very easy to deal with and turned out to be a thorough professional.” – Tarun Godhwani
“Jobs are professionally done all the time. Reasonable prices.” – Kwok Kum Tong
“By word of mouth, I knew about First Choice Plumbing. The high level of professionalism, as well as excellent customer service, really impressed me during one occasion when my water pipe inside my room burst in the wee hours of the night. Such good and reliable plumber is indeed rare to find nowadays in Singapore … Highly recommend to anyone who needs plumbing services!” – Tan Yao Long

Tips for hiring a plumber
Check with relevant authorities for referrals
If you live in a HDB flat, your town council may have a list of approved plumbers. They are usually selected through a tender process. They are only allowed to charge according to rates stated in their contract. This can assure you that your plumbing needs will be in safe hands. Should there be any issues with your plumber, you can always contact your town council for help.
If you live in a condominium, check with the manager to find out if there’s a resident plumber.
Check on your plumber’s background
Firstly, make sure your plumber is licensed by the Public Utilities Board, or PUB for short. It is a crime to hire unlicensed plumbers in Singapore. You may be fined and even jailed up to 12 months!
Google up comments and ratings from previous customers and find out their experiences with the plumbers.
To find out how competent they are, ask them if they have encountered a similar issue previously and how they managed to solve it.
If there’s a need to alter the piping system for a new installation, make sure your plumber knows what kind of license or permit is required.
Before you agree to anything, confirm the price. Ensure that there are no hidden charges. Is the plumber insured? Is there a warranty period or a full money-back guarantee should there be deficiencies in the job?
Be specific about your concerns and needs. Even if you aren’t familiar with the plumbing jargons, you can always use your senses to describe the problem. Do you smell a gas leak? Is there hot water available in the shower?
Always be with the plumber when he’s working and feel free to ask questions if you don’t understand what he’s doing.
How often is plumbing needed?
When living in an older home – Older homes built prior to 1960’s might contain plumbing systems made of steel pipes. Steel pipes could eventually deteriorate over time. This could lead to leaks, bursts, and metal leaks in water supplies.
Structures with aging trees – Huge trees that have been growing for many years have an extensive root system underground that is not detectable. Growing roots can be immensely forceful and push right through underground plumbing pipes, which takes ages to detect.
Shifting into new premises–With new home purchases, it is best to have plumbing inspection by someone other than a home inspector. Many small things could cause seepages, leaks, plumbing issues.
Other times plumbing is required:
Regular Plumbing Amends
Low Water Pressure
Brown Spots on the Ceiling
Pungent Smells from the Drain
Higher Water Bills
Corroded Paint or wallpaper in the toilet
Toilet flushing is noisy, gurgling
Mould Growth on Cabinets or Walls
Consistently Clogged Toilets
Low water pressure throughout the house
No hot water
Sewer line stoppage
Extensive water line damage
The tap will not stop dripping
Your bathtub will not drain
Water is not flowing correctly
Your pipes are clogged
Your toilet basin is clogged
Bathtub, Sink, or Toilet That will not Drain
Things to consider prior to hiring plumbers in Singapore
1) Check with your town council
If you stay in a HDB estate, check earlier with your town council for plumber and handyman services. Certain town councils appoint verified contractors to provide plumbing. These contractors are independently hired, verified. Check their details from your town council webpage.
2) Get job descriptions and warranty in proofed contracts
Negotiations between you and your plumber should be captured in proofed contracts, especially agreed price (including add-ons like transport charges, material fees and inspection fees etc), scope of work and warranty period.
You have the right to refuse payment until the job is completed to your approval.
3) Supervise the work in person
Leaving your maid, parents, children at home to supervise the work may not be wise, as they may not know how to supervise, or to understand how good plumbing should turn out. Hence, it is best if you supervise the plumbing work in person.
