Description  Fix a leakage

Feedback  After many failed attempts to repair a leakage, for a period of over 4 months of trial and error, he never fixed the problem, so much money wasted. He can't even honor his commitment to come and finish, nor be humble enough to recommend, as I suggested, someone who can actually fix the leakage.

Feedback  Calistus isolated the cause of my issue very quickly and also did the work well. Sadly, the replacement valve was faulty so the work had to be re-done. The faulty valve is not his fault. I have to commend Calistus for seeing the job through the end and coming on separate occasions to be sure the issue was truly resolved. Definitely keeping his number in my address book for future plumbing issues I may encounter.

Description  Plumbing in the kitchen

Feedback  Calistus had to do some plumbing work in my kitchen, replacing pipes and fixing the sink. It seemed as though he had done a good job but one the pipes started leaking and I asked him to come back to fix it and I tried for 2 weeks to get hold of him with no real luck. In the end I fixed the leak myself. The price he charged was very expensive for the work done and especially since the workmanship wasn't up to standard I'm not pleased with his service.

Cost  50000

Description  He did all the bathroom fitting and tiling work for the bathroom in a new outbuilding: He fitted the toilet, shower heads, basins etc. (the copper piping in the walls were fitted by the builder). He used 3 different tiles: one for the floors, one for the walls and mosaic tiles for the shower. He also installed 80m2 tiling in the rest of the house, from the passageway into the lounge and dining area.

Feedback  He was recommended by my aunt, for whom he did tiling work. He also did 100m2 of tiling for my grandparents. There he removed the old carpets and installed marble tiles in all the bedrooms, the lounge, the dining area and the TV room. I saw both the jobs he did and said "I like what I see I'll use you." When he came to do the tiling he said he could also do the bathroom fitting. I was unsure, but he said "if you're not happy, don't pay me." That was September 2015 and everything is fine, no leaks. He made an invisible hump that prevented runoff into another area. It works great and I don't even have a shower door! (My shower is a bit larger 1.2m2, compared to the standard 0.9m2 size, otherwise I would need a door.) My other aunt saw the job he did for me and used him to redo her shower, which he finished off last month. I will be installing 15m2 tiles in between the bottom and top cupboards in the kitchen and am willing to use him. I would recommend him to my friends and family when they're in need. His bakkie is a bit old, he would do well with a new one. I would give him 7/10 for punctuality, but he does always come if he says he will. And I appreciated his capability. I wouldn't need to tell him what to do or how to do it and he would find the best possible way make it looks good. He took care to cut and place tiles so that it looks good.

Feedback  Calistus is a great person to work with, I have worked with him so many times. His prices are really affordable and he cleans up after himself. I like the fact that he is considerate in terms of working around my budget. He is really dedicated to his job to an extent that he works at night. There was a time when my toilet was leaking at nine at night and after a couple of minutes he came and fixed it. He is a wonderful person and I would recommend anyone to him.
