I have dealt with Carlos Saliente company for 6 years, however relatively smaller jobs have been the normal until a couple of weeks ago when my swimming pool developed a serious fault and called the company. Carl & assistant arrived and set about tracing the leaking pool !!!! This entailed several visits, 4-5, sealing all the different parts of pool to eliminating possibles & then told me what needed to be done - I must amid my heart was thumping wondering what financial costs would be but already involved !!
The day arrived to start the the drilling to trace the actual leak which was I know quite a big one. After a day drilling and pulling pipes out and replacing new ones.Then next date they came again to fill in the holes with cement. The pool started up and perfect.They tidied all up cleaned and left all as good as new with me to paint etc what needed to blend in.
I must say that I was delighted but heart was thumping as I received the cost. I nearly fainted - with delight - paid up before they changed their mind.
The whole job was as proffesional as could be & happy to recomend them to any one. Thank you very much to the team & in particular Natalie who is behind the scenes but tying all together.

Carlos Saliente have now done a number of jobs for us. They fitted a complete solar system, got water into our house and installed all new plumbing, including toilets, sinks, baths etc. They also installed all the pool system and got the pool up and running after it had been out of use for many years. I must say that I would have no hesitation in recommending Carlos as all the work that was done was excellent. He was totally reliable, no fuss, no sharp intakes of breath. Just a get the job done and make sure that we had exactly what we wanted. The prices were spot on and there were no hidden extras. The after sales service was also excellent as Natalie was keen to make sure that once all the work was done we were completely satisfied and they were on hand at any time for backup and information. I wouldn't have to think twice about who I would use for any of my plumbing and heating now as we are happy that we have found a company that really do offer an excellent service.

Time to put the capital lock on again and say another public HUGE THANK YOU This time to Carlos who, despite it being the end of the week late on a Friday came to the house and managed to get the boiler problem sorted enough to have a longed for hot bath. Not only that he came back on Saturday morning and got the system up and running fully.
Carlos - thank you - its lovely to finally have heating and hot water; for the great advice re getting set up with contracts etc and not least sheer professionalisim. Wishing you and Natalie continued success your help really has been and is appreciated.

"We are loving our pool heater and I have been swimming every day since the beginning of April, while our neighbours haven't been in their pool at all yet."
Anne Martin, Los Torres - May 2012
Had Carl in to do a job for us. Speedy service and well priced. Would have no hesitation in recommending them.
(When Carl came to us last week he promised to return to do another little job for us and as good as his word he came yesterday and got us sorted).
Chrissy, Arboleas - January 2012
Many thanks to Carl and his team for our lovely warm villa that now has central heating. Also the solar hot water installation. Definitely a man of many talents...! Can't wait for the cold weather now - I'll stock up with the biscuits ready for your return around February!
Lynne, Arboleas - November 2011
"We recently have had a new pellet burning fire fitted by Carlos Saliente. I can highly recommend this company. They were quick, efficient and left the house clean and tidy. Their approach was polite and knowledgeable and they were happy to answer any questions we had regarding the equipment. A pleasure to have working in the home."
Pat Norman, Urcal - October 2011
"We recently had a new oil-fired combi-boiler installed by Carl, very pleased with the prompt attendance, the standard of workmanship and also the friendly attitude of Carl and his assistant."
Val & Chris Bailey, Los Marcelinos - October 2011
"It's reassuring to employ a professional and skilled team. From the quotation through to the installation of a branded soft-water system, Carlos Saliente did exactly as promised, demonstrating quality expertise and providing full satisfaction."
Terence Block, Albox - October 2011
"When we bought our new place in Spain, our neighbours recommended Carlos for setting up our water requirements. He installed our gas boiler, water softener, water tank and pump, also building a caseta for the pump and gas bottles. Since then, Carlos has carried out further work for us, including installing a screen for our en-suite shower area. We were very grateful for his excellent service, and to Natalie, with her excellent knowledge of Spanish, who helped set up our original gas contract. Thanking them now for their service and support, they are recommended by us as a good team and remain our first point of contact for any water-associated work."
Tim & Barbara Jones, Retamar - October 2011
"Thanks for all your excellent work, our new bathroom is a delight. Thanks for all your help in finding and selecting the right tiles and bathroom fittings and for the excellent workmanship throughout."
Robin & Lorna Sparkes, Valle De Este Golf Course - October 2011
"Well what can I say except that the service you give is nothing but the best. We are very pleased with the heating installed, it is not only efficient, but clean and the fact that when it was installed the work was quickly done without any hassle, and the fact that the workers cleaned as they went was to me an added bonus."
Paula, Los Torres - October 2011
"I have had Carlos do work for me over the last four years: he has serviced three of my boilers, fitted solar panels for my swimming pool, fixed two of my sinks plus toilets that leaked. We are very pleased with all his work and Natalie with her skills in the office. We wish them both the best in the future."
Roy P Stubbings, Puerto Lumbreras - October 2011
"Carl has done wonderful work for us in installing a water softener, making our gas supply legal where other supposedly reputable local plumbers had failed and installing a solar heating system for our pool. The latter is working well and hopefully will extend our swimming season. All the work has been carried out on time, very efficiently and we would have no hesitation in recommending Carl to anyone .The whole operation is supported by Natalie’s super efficient administration."
Tom & Linda Bennett, Los Llanos del Peral - September 2011
"Carlos Saliente installed solar pool heating for us this summer. The job was done very well and efficiently and we are happy with the result. Normally by the end of September we would no longer be swimming, but the pool is still just over 30º, 5º warmer than our neighbour's. Obviously the temperature will depend on how much sunshine we get, but we are hoping to swim at least until the end of October and perhaps be able to start swimming at the end of March/beginning of April next year."
Jeff & Anne Martin, Los Torres, Arboleas - September 2011
"Just a short note to thank you for the very clean and efficient service for the recent jobs you carried out for me. I find it unusual these days to find someone who turns up when they say they will, carry out the work thoroughly and as stated and when finished leave the area clean and tidy.Well done I will definitely use your services again."
Len Naish, Limaria, Arboleas - September 2011
"Just to say how pleased we are with the work that you did installing Sola pool Heating for us. The work was well planned, and the pipes were hidden whenever possible. Best of all you took all the rubbish away with you. It is now late September, and we are still swimming in a warm pool, without Sola heating this would not be possible. We were so pleased with your work that we refered our friends Ole & Bente to you to have their central heating installed with your company. They tell me that you will be doing the work in October 2011. I am still swimming in our pool and it's the 14th. October, thanks to your installing solar heating for the pool. So far this has extended my swimming by at least five weeks, as I would never be in the pool at this time of the year. I expect to swim till the end of October!!"
Barry & Ruth Rose, El Saltador - September 2011
"Carlos and team have just installed oil central heating in my home, excellent workmanship, at the end of the day you would not have known they had been working all day, everywhere neat & tidy. Good price, job well done, would highly recomend them & Nat is so helpful, thank you all."
Barbara Smith, La Canada, Partaloa - March 2011
"Very efficient service. Job done for the quoted price and time frame. We wouldn't hesitate to use them again and would recommend them to friends."
John Bowling, El Pinar, Bedar - May 2010
Very cosy thanks to you. Just had our calefacion central installed. Good service, good price and they are so tidy and careful. Is Carl that well behaved at home Nat?
Really delighted it is warm all through the house. It has made the house feel bigger and the timing system is brilliant and the radiators are really well designed.
