What a legend! Living local I’ve used Newman Plumbing a few times, and each time I’ve had prompt, professional and friendly service.There’s always a big worry about hidden fees with trade jobs, but Russell always gives a price up front, explains the job, and fixes issues so they stay fixed.Absolutely recommend for any of your plumbing needs, and the first guy I call when I need something fixed! Also made sure right from the start of his latest call-out that I had his proof of vaccination.

Called Newman Plumbing as our toilet and sink etc were not draining quickly. 30 mins later Russell was at our front door and an hour later our blocked pipe (tree roots) was all sorted. I appreciated the way Russell explained what he was going to do, how much it would cost and his generally courteous and professional manner. Would gladly recommend this local plumbing business to my family and friends.

Russell from Newman Plumbing was a pleasure to deal with and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services for all your Plumbing needs. He was very quick to arrive when my mother urgently needed a plumber to unblock her drain, was professional and took the time to explain things in layman's terms. He also provided us with several options to avoid this happening in future and didn't do the hard sell for the most expensive option. We will definitely be using Newman Plumbing for all our plumbing needs in the future. Thank you so much Russell for all your great work and your advice going forward. Liz and Ian.

Newman Plumbing are excellent. Russell gave us a quick (and accurate) assessment of our leaking shower and bathroom vanities, gave a *very* competitive quote, and immediately repaired the problem. Russell is professional, highly experienced, and focused on the task. No add-ons, no up-selling, just an excellent and efficient repair. Thanks, Russell!

Russell came same day I rang for fairly urgent work. Our sump pump was having a few issues and with the fall of land around here we’d have water up to the back door. He fixed the pump for me and was very friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend as a great local plumber.

I called just after 9am needing dripping basin taps replaced. Russell dropped in between his booked jobs to take a look, provide a quote and from his truck showed me the taps he would install. Russell then came back at 3pm as agreed, installed the taps, cleaned up and checked my water pressure. Great to have the new taps installed so now we won't be wasting water! Thanks Russell! I will keep your details on the fridge in case we need you again for another job.

Russell was so efficient and professional when he came to my house this morning. Both of my leaking tap issues were fixed quickly and he was able to sort out a drain problem that I didn't even know I had.Russell took the time to clearly explain what needed to be done and the cost before he started the work. I really appreciated that.I would definitely recommend Newman Plumbing.

Admittedly skeptical of online reviews, I called Russell early on the morning of 13 March 2015 to tackle the hot water shower tap which decided to stop working and the response was a chirpy "I'll be over shortly" which I thought was the closest thing to getting off on the right foot over the phone as anyone could expect. And it got better from then on.Russell was efficient, very knowledgeable, extremely friendly and to top it all off, he was very open with additional advice on the state of my home's hot water and plumbing system which, admittedly, has seen better days. I am not generally open with my praise for someone whom I meet for the first time but I am more than happy to make this an exception, and I am pretty certain this will not be the last time I will be engaging him.The only downside to this whole experience was he left before my coffee machine was properly warmed up. Thanks so much, Russell.

The thing I like most about Russell and Newman Plumbing is that, for years, whenever I've rung him with a plumbing emergency (these have included blocked drains, flooded heating ducts, bung hot water units, busted pipes, disintegrating taps) he's swept in like a superhero, literally within an hour or so of me calling, to fix the problem. It's literally like "who was that masked man?"Russell has to be the most efficient and knowledgeable plumber in existence and he will solve your problems completely in double quick time. You will never hear Russell say "I can be there by, maybe, Thursday" and you'll never have to ring him to say "It's still not working properly".Russell solves your plumbing problems completely with no messing around. Couldn't recommend him more highly.

We have used Newman Plumbing for all of our plumbing needs for years. Russell is always on time, gets the job done with a minimum of fuss, leaves the work area clean and tidy and will accommodate emergencies too. Service is always with a smile. I have recommended Newman Plumbing to other local people and they have all been pleased with the service too.

Excellent service, super friendly and very knowledgable!! Russell Newman from Newman Plumbing fixed the mixer tap in my shower. I emailed the night before saying I wanted someone the next day. He was able to accommodate this and showed up right on time. After fixing the tap, he took a look at some of my other fittings and provided advice and guidance on how to maintain them (no extra charge, just helping me understand the fittings in my new home). I've only just moved in to my apartment, so his friendly nature and helpful advice was very much appreciated! Thanks Russell, I'm keeping your number on my fridge!

Thanks Russell for helping us with a couple of plumbing problems. We rang and you arrived quickly, that put you way ahead of others who never even bothered to show up! Your work showed experience, you explained everything you were doing and why, and left us with a handful of hints on things we can do to help look after our household plumbing going forward. Many thanks.Keith, Nunawading
We’ve always appreciated Russell’s fast response and problem solving both at home and our business.Sue, Balwyn North & Ashburton
Russell has been “foaming” the drains at my place since 2007 and i’ve had no problems since then, after many years of my drains blocking due to my large trees. I’m very happy with the service.Margaret, Balwyn
Russell from Newman Plumbing came to our home today for repairs to some leaking taps in our bathroom. I have been living with dripping taps for far to long! I don’t know why I put up with them for so long. He supplied and fitted new chrome taps which has made such a huge difference to our bathroom. Thank you. Julie, Templestowe
