looking for a good plumber to look at my water based radiator. it might need a valve replacement or not sure what else.

the price from pimlico plumbers seems like £130 or something. that's double the price of the radiator itself.

any contacts of plumbers you can recommend and comment on the charge?

many thanks

I saw a documentary about Pimlico and they are notoriously expensive; it's their intention to appeal to the wealthy classes. Unfortunately I cannot recommend an alternative in London (assuming that's where you are), but thought the info about Pimlico would be useful.
If you get no recommendations, I'm sure picking any other plumber local to you from the internet will be considerably cheaper. If it's not an urgent situation, be careful not to make it sound urgent to avoid a high callout charge.

Get on Checkatrade or rated people. If I can't get a personal recommendation from a friend I always go to one of these.

Get a Homeserve trial membership for £1 a month x 12 months and give them a ring in about a month's time. I've had them do radiator valves for me.

Indeed. Unless of course the fault was declared up front and the insurer still agreed to insure.

It's funny that I had Homeserve already and I checked with them. They would only help if radiator is leaking.

The problem is it is not heating at all. The advisor on the phone reckons I can try bleeding it. Not sure what that is, need to youtube it.

Take off the plastic top to the valve, give it a light tap with a hammer. It's probably just sticking.
