Wasted my time also. Called at 9:30 am, I was advised someone would be there between Noon and 3:00 pm. At 3:10 they called to confirm address and told me the service tech would be there within 45 minutes (3:50 pm). They used the excuse they had called earlier and since I did not answer the service tech went to another job - I wonder why their call does not show up on my caller id? At 4:00 pm... Read more

Had a clogged main drain. The 'technician' showed up and hour and half late, and quoted an exorbitant price. We negotiated it down to something more reasonable - the tech agreed that the problem would not require more than an hour. When finished, we were presented with a bill, for the negotiated price, plus a 'fuel' charge of $20. This was pure fiction on the part of the tech, to get back... Read more

I needed the pipe snaked at my small business, access to the pipe was easy (in the middle of the parking lot) they showed up, 2 hours late, looked down the pipe, look at me and said $900... WTF??? Really??? If it was not for the fact that all of the plumbing in my shop was rendered useless and I would have had to send all my employees home till it was fixed (costing me as much or more) I would...

This company has come 4 times to fix plumbing problems in my house over the past 9 years. They're quick to arrive, professional, and get the job done without any hassles. They've always had the needed parts on their trucks and offer 24 hour emergency service without additional fees. They just left here at 12:30 a.m. after unclogging a toilet which was much appreciated. They have shown up late in... Read more
