The Plumbers Mate random chatter from the plumbers wife


Product rating

We recently installed a 'Joule' Un-vented Solar Cylinder. Having never fitted a Joule before we didn't know what to expect. It turned out to be one of the best un-vented cylinders we've ever installed, and we've fitted a few (100+).

People ask for a 'Megaflo', just as people ask for a 'Hoover'! Sadly neither of those brands are the best in their field and the unpopular brads actually supply a better product (not to mention that they are cheaper aswell! Cheap normally doesn't mean good, but as installers we know what goes wrong and what doesn't). The joule cylinder is on a par with the Ariston Primo stainless steel cylinder, which with marketing aside is in our view the best un-vented cylinder on the market. Ariston boilers may not be fantastic but their Cylinders are brilliant! Joule have produced a viable rival with the added bonus of including Solar units, heat pump units, twin coil & triple coil to the mix.


Need a Cooker or fridge in Whitstable?

We have had the pleasure of doing the gas work for Advance electrical (Euronics) showroom in Oxford st, Whitstable.

I can't recommend them highly enough. They turn up when they say they will, unpack the existing appliance, remove the old one and then take it away for disposal. A small town like whitstable has many gems and one is Advance. Kind people and even though they are competing with the internet prices and big stores like Comet, Currys etc, they offer something that none of the rest do, A personal service. A lot of the business is return customers and that speaks volumes.

So if you are thinking of buying a fridge, freezer, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, cooker or even a vacuum cleaner you should try the local shop before disappearing off into cyber space. Save Whitstable Shops!
