Remote diagnostics & Advisory Service
I offer a remote diagnostic & guidance service, charged at £35/issue, for those who wish to carry out their own repairs, and in the event of a plumbing issue arising whilst someone is isolating, shielding, or during any lockdown period.

I, as far as is reasonably practicable, identify the urgency of the issue and provide guidance, or make arrangements for remedial work to take place within the bounds of the customer’s shielding requirments. and any national or local restrictions.

Please do get in touch if you’d like to use this service, via email or telephone - 07821757910.

Installers are essential, they’re on the tools already and have so much knowledge about customers, pipes, homes, heating, yet their often the least listened to when we talk about decarbonising heat.

Is this part of our ingrained classism? Lack of respect for dirtier work?

How best can installers be supported and encouraged to be leaders in the transition to renewables?

Listen in to Sovay on the BetaTalk podcast hosted by Nathan van Gambling, with fellow guests, Leah Robson of Your Energy Your Way, Dr Rhiannon de Wreede, and Dr Faye Wade

Listen to me and Lysette Hacking talk about our expreiences as part of the 2.4% of plumbers who are women on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour. 

We also discuss plumbing training, the impact of the ongoing #austerity programme, and that many people feel unsafe with the traditional trades offer. Let’s make access to mundane essential services more equitable
