“Staff is very friendly. They gave a good explanation, were patient to give advice, and answered all my questions. The service man did an excellent job too. He was very professional, independent and gave good advice on future care of the Waterco outdoor filter, and how to do maintenance/backwash of the filter. Thank you so much.”—Jeff Nga, Google Reviews
Good after sales service
“The service engineer/tech (Mr. Tee) came by on time as promised by the office. He was very professional, independent and gave good advice on future care/usage of the device that needed replacing. Overall, I personally had a very good client servicing experience. The service guy definitely is a good reflection of the BWS company. And his practice in turn is a reflection on the training & management culture. Kudos to everyone at BWS for a very good service experience.

Apart from providing water heater repair and installation services, Boon Chye Plumbing and Electrical Services is your one-stop shop to your plumbing needs. They offer a wide range of plumbing services such as tap installation, leak repairs, to unclogging and cleaning, and we are impressed with the flexibility in the services they offer.
What we like most about Boon Chye is their 24/7 service since not all water heater repair and installation services in Kuala Lumpur and across Malaysia are available any time. They can attend any emergency repairs that need to be dealt with, which is very helpful for anyone who needs a late night water heater or plumbing fix.
Their staff are also knowledgeable and well-trained in their field. They will explain everything you need to know about their repair, maintenance, or installation process, which is a great example of good customer service.
However, some of their fees may be higher than other companies. For example, they charge extra for after-hours service, which is understandable though.
Some customers are also disappointed in their after sales services, such as follow-ups that take more than 2 months to resolve.

Knowledgeable and professional
“Their customer service is excellent. Their plumbers are knowledgeable and professional, and prices are fair. I trust them.

Thank you for exceeding my expectations.”—Utayarajan Govindarajan, Google Reviews

They focus on manufacturing and developing solar water heater brands, such as Summer, HeatFirst, Meru, and Kinetico. Their goal is to make products that are environmental, safe, and reliable.
Their green initiative has definitely left us a remarkable impression. Their technology needs careful testing to pass environment-friendly standards, and we’re happy to know that their products carefully went through a thorough quality testing process.
So if you want to slowly transform your home into a more eco-friendly one, Solartech is the right place for your solar water heater system. You can learn more about solar water heater systems and other types of water heaters here.
However, what’s not very positively striking in Solartech is that some of the products were not properly installed causing it to fail. Some customers lost their warranty due to an unnecessary mistake.
Some warranty claims took long to deal with and some follow-ups are not handled well by customer service as well. As a result, they can’t fix the problem within the warranty period in some cases.
Compared to other water heater repair and installation services, Solartech offers relatively lesser services than others. But given that they focus on solar water heater products, this may not be a big deal.
“I got in touch with the team at solartech to replace my leaking water tank. The team was very efficient, organized and expedited the process to fix an appt date for me. Quality of work done is also topnotch, as they are professional, efficient and most importantly for me, worked very cleanly in my unit. Highly recommended.”—Santhiyya Ramachandirang, Google Reviews

Apart from water heater repair and installation services, KL1 Plumber offer a wide array of services including pipe repair, toilet repair, and drainage cleaning. They can be your one-stop shop to your plumbing needs.
What struck us most about KL1 Plumber is their fast response and good after sales service, as reported by their customers. This is definitely a good example of good client care.
KL1 Plumber is also very transparent in their services. They make sure that you are well-informed about the problem along with the steps that they will take to fix the issue.
Their transparency also covers showing a well-detailed receipt of what you paid for. KL1 Plumber assures an affordable rate without hidden charges.
Given the high rates of products and services during the pandemic, having an itemized receipt is a great help in managing your expenses, which is all the more reason why their transparency is definitely commendable.
But some customers still encounter some issues regarding KL1’s responsiveness and punctuality. Sometimes, texts and calls are never returned and technicians may come in late, which may not be helpful during emergency repairs or installations.
Since some of the customers still reported that KL1 replies fast, it’s possible and understandable that the amount of texts and calls they receive in a day can be overwhelming. It’s a good thing that they provided an email where you can reach them alternatively.
Excellent service and transparency
“They did a great job on my water pump repair with an outstanding price. Super excellent service provided, The crew reached on time and gave a great explanation of my current situation.Thank you for your services.”—Queenie Ting, Google Reviews
Polite and professional
“The girls who answered the phone were nice and polite. They explained things clearly. The technicians are also very polite and professional. They are very trustworthy and I highly recommended them.”—Siti Mariam Mohd, Google Reviews

One of our favorite things about AAA Fix-It is the number of locations they have in Kuala Lumpur and across Malaysia. They have a total of five addresses, covering a lot of homes who may need immediate water heater repair or installation.
They also have a wide array of services from home improvement to security services. They feature a blog where you can read information about their products and help you with anything concerning their services.
We also like the fact that they run promos from time to time. It’s a good way to help their customers.
We also like how their online form is structured. It requires you to put in as much information as they need, such as checkboxes where you can tick which problems that need solving, and a box for a detailed explanation of the issue you’re experiencing.
Giving them all the complete information about your case will make the process much more efficient.
However, some customers reported that they charge a bit higher than other companies, which can be understandable in some cases. Some clients also complained about their bad after sales service.
Rare and commendable service
“Kudos to the AAA FIX-IT. I was having trouble with my water heater. They came within a half-hour after my call and replaced the thermostat on my hot water heater. Even though they spent an hour fixing it they didn’t take any charge from me as my issue was very minor. This kind of service is unheard of these days. Really, it was very satisfying.”—Liva Hudson, Google Reviews
Quick responses and on-time delivery
“These guys were quick to respond to a/c service request. They were on time! Friendly, honest and well presented. Cleaned up after themselves and were even lovely towards my children.
Whilst first repair was not successful they were quick to send techs back out at no charge.
Communication is excellent. Would recommend them any day.”—Sherreden Kearns, Google Reviews
