Opening Hours

I mainly work Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm, but please call at any time and leave me a voicemail if I don't answer. I usually respond to enquiries at the end of my working day.


I normally get booked up a few days in advance, so I am not usually in a position to respond to emergencies. Of course you are welcome to try calling me, but if you leave me a voicemail and I don't get back to you within a few minutes, please look elsewhere.
How I work
Hamish Erskine, Hamish the Plumber, Plumbers in Salisbury, Profile photo
I often hear it said, “You can’t find a plumber to do the small jobs”, or “You can’t find a plumber when you need one”.

I try to fill these two needs of small jobs and availability without too long a wait.

I especially fix toilets and taps, but also deal with shower problems, leaks, blockages and the like. Not being a gas plumber, I don’t do boiler repairs or servicing, but I do fix problems with radiators and radiator valves.

I arrive at a job with an expectation of fixing the problem and charge according to my published hourly rate. That way you pay for how long the job actually takes, and I never overcharge. I carry a good stock of common plumbing parts in my van which helps me provide an efficient service. More often than not I am able to complete the job without having to go and buy parts, which minimises my labour charge.

According to my reviews, many people are impressed by how efficiently I work and get the job done. For detailed price guidance, please see my pricing page.

Brilliant efficient service. Hamish confirmed the appointment by text and turned up on time. Really helpful and willing to sort the problem. I felt he was completely trustworthy and would not hesitate to recommend or use again. A really good find.
Paul Reynolds
Great service. Fitted me in same day for radiator valve replacement, which was done quickly and to an excellent standard. I will certainly use him again in future for minor plumbing jobs.
Russ Le Puill
