    Hi All,

    Looking for a plumber to fix a leaking hydronic fitting and broken spa heater.

    Also pondering a pump to improve the water pressure.

    Any recommendations?

    Ok, I tried the above number a few times, just rings out. If I google Mt Hotham Plumbing I get a mobile of 0417 743 322, but that isn't him (person who answered hadn't heard of Mick). Is he still in business, does anyone have a valid mobile number?

    So, turns out (03) 5756 2333 was the right number, but Mick hasn't been doing plumbing for over 10 years!! This board has its' finger on the pulse ;-)

    OK, Brett Barrett (0409961771) got back to me, and all is well, he seems like a good find, thanks @Boodwah for the recommendation.

    I now need a carpet layer to fix some water damage, google yields almost nothing, anyone got a suggestion?

    Brett barret is the main plumber,however there is another from omeo district ,Craig diamond 0428594252. If you are quick you may catch him at dp tomorrow.he is quoting on a job there on Thursday. with regards carpet laying there was a local who lived at Belltrees in geebung rd . local accomodation agencies would have his contact. Good luck

    Why dont you keep a copy of the local yellow pages and just ring around , especially from the Bright, Mt Beauty, Omeo areas.
    Are there any carpet shops/furnishing shops in the local towns , check with them , and if you have a rapport with anyone from the local real estate companies they will generally know of local handymen that can lay carpet.
    One problem is that everyone is running around at this time of the year trying to get everything fixed.
    The resorts/hotels/lodges themselves are in the same boat , but have deeper pockets and bigger jobs so a lot of the tradies just follow the money and every one else gets puts on the backburner.
