Recent Review: It went very well. Charles came the same day and found and fixed the problem. He explained everything to me so that I will know what is going on if it happens again. He was very pleasant to deal with and price was reasonable. We discussed another project that I may have him do for us.

Recent Review: We had been having trouble with our domestic hot water being very inconsistant and not really holding temperature from our Viking boiler combination domestic hot water/hydronic heating system. I had already rebuilt the Taco mixing/tempering valve and was still having the problem. I called John (owner of Bailey Plumbing) and described the problem and he described a couple of possible scenarios and came equipped to handle them. When he got here and looked at the set up and we reviewed the symptoms he started to isolate the cause by measuring the temp. coming out of the nearest hot water outlet and adjusting the mixing/tempering valve to check its functionality, among a couple of other things. With all this he changed his initial over-the-phone diagnosis (a bad mixing cartridge at one of the shower valves) and zeroed in on the system mixing/tempering valve that I had already "repaired". Turns out that the spring in this valve must have failed which is the one part that wasn't included in the rebuild kit I had gotten. At this point, with the mixing/tempering valve not performing it's function, he recommended that this was what needed to be fixed first and then go from there if the problem wasn't solved. This is where I was rather pleasantly surprised. He said that he could do that for me if that's what I wanted but, since I was a DIYer and had already been working on the system and it was a fairly easy job, I might want to save myself the money and do it myself; then call him and let him know how it turned out. If we still had problems he could come out again and install a couple of valves to isolate the mixing valve (which should have been there when the system was installed in the first place) and adjust the hot and cold flow to the mixing/tempering valve. Well, fortunately one of the local plumbing supply stores had the upgraded Taco valve in stock, I picked it up that day and swapped it out the next day. The most time consuming part was waiting for the tank to drain down low enough to do this (since those valves had never been installed on the hot and cold supply lines to isolate the mixing valve). Long story slightly longer - the problem is fixed and whenever I need a plumber/HVAC guy I'm calling Bailey's. They are honest and more concerned with fixing the problem than jacking up the bill and not interested in trying to talk over you with some BS and do work that is totally unnecessary (has that happened to you? It has to me).
