Why Do I Need a Professional Plumber?
The idea of “hiring a man in” can make any DIY enthusiast’s face turn sour but some jobs should always be left to the professionals. When it comes to your water, gas or electrical systems, one wrong move can spell disaster.
Rather than fumbling your way through a complicated repair, you do not entirely understand, call us here at Ability. Our experienced plumbers in the Tonbridge area have the expertise to fix any plumbing job faster and more efficiently than you can. We can also recognise a broader problem much quicker than you. What might be a poorly running tap to you could, indicate a much broader issue to our expert eye. In this instance, we can advise you on your best cause of action before severe or lasting damage can be allowed to happen.
Plus, you have to think of the insurance. Attempting a repair yourself or hiring a general handyman could result in an accident that could give you a hefty hike in your insurance premiums.

Finding the Right Plumber for You
When most people need a plumber, they reach for a directory or a search engine and pick the first they find. At Ability, we know that by contacting us you have found a reliable plumbing service, and we hope we can prove it to you. We are local plumbers based in our Tonbridge office, and as a business we have years of experience and repeat customers, never mind as individual engineers.
Disreputable “cowboy” plumbers can abandon you halfway through a job, overcharge you, or botch their work leaving you in a potentially more dangerous situation than when you made your initial call. Our recommendations and reputation should speak for themselves, but we know that is not always enough for customers. When hiring a plumber, they should always be registered with CIPHE (Chartered Institutes of Plumbing and Heating Engineering) and anyone even thinking about taking a look at your gas boiler needs to be Gas Safe Registered.
Any professional plumber worth their salt will have these accreditations. For your peace of mind, always hire from an accredited and reputable source, and we happen to be one! All our engineers are Gas Safe Registered, so you know cowboys are not handling a job.
Of course, it is also essential to hire a plumber within your budget. We offer highly competitive prices that cannot be beaten on quality and cost. If you find a better quote at one of our competitors, let us know, and we will try our best to match it.

When that is out of the way, they will give you a quote for the overall job and make an appointment to get back to you as soon as they have the necessary part.

Perhaps you need a new bathroom suite fitted, and you are concerned about how long you won’t have a toilet for. Are you worried about the cost of installing a new boiler? There are many valid questions you need to ask your plumber. Just remember that there is no such thing as a stupid question. We are the experts, and we want you to be entirely at peace and happy with our decisions as we complete your job.

The History of Tonbridge
Tonbridge was first recorded in the Domesday book back in 1087 and it was known ad Tonebridge. This may represent a bridge of which would belong to an estate. There is another theory that the name Tonbridge was derived from “town of bridges” and this being due to the large number of streams and rivers that crossed the high street, once upon a time.
The river Medway, which runs right through the 11th-century castle and is renowned for flooding from time to time. The castle was built by Richard Fitz Gilbert the son of the murdered guardian William the Conqueror. For much of its early existence, the town was to the north of the river as it was the south that always flooded. There is one part of the town which is called ‘dry hill’ and it was Richard Fitz Gilbert de Clare that founded the Priory of St Mary Magdalene, this was in 1124.
