The kitchen sink was draining slow and the main drain was leaking water in the basement. Searched Angie's List for plumbers in my area with good ratings of course and happened upon
's Big Deal. Just like another member noted, they answered the phone after one ring. A few days later Bill came out to conduct the estimate. He was punctual and professional. He found that the main drain was cracked and clogged. Due to the nature of the job, it had to be scheduled for another day so that more man hours could be devoted. Once the job was completed they checked to make sure everything was working correctly and gave me a review of what was done. I was very pleased with their work.

After a bumpy start with communications it was resolved and the problems fixed very professionally. Asked to have the owner call me about future work but never received a call back.

It went very smooth and quickly. They worked around my work scheduled and even came out on a Saturday. Very helpful and got the job done right. I will be calling them in the future for any issues that might arise.

He came the day I called and completed the work that evening around 6:30pm, and was pleasant. I paid with credit card, however after he left I remembered the 10% members coupon. I called the next day about the 10% members coupon. He was not pleasant, however he said, if he could, he would credit my count, if not he would send a check. It has been two weeks since the work was done, and I have not received a credit on my credit card, nor have I received a check. I was disappointed as I took him at his word.

It was terrific. Went above and beyond to help me especially when water being turned on caused a geyser due to unexpected cracked pipe. Not only will I use them again, I already have them scheduled for next week to take care of a few more plumbing issues. Thanks to Angie's list I found

HOMEOWNERS BEWARE OF

PLUMBING. I have never experienced anything like this.
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
came to inspect my toilet, which was running, in September 2013.
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, the owner, gave me two estimates for both the part (a fill valve) and labor--one for $250 for a plastic fill valve and one for $375 for a brass fill valve--and I chose the cheaper one since he said there was no difference. The part took a week longer to come in than estimated, but I had the work done. When the plumber completed the work, he told me that the cost would be $375! When I told him that I was quoted at $250 and had an Angie's List coupon for 10% off, he said ok and took my check for $225.
However, the toilet kept running and when the plumber returned to address the problem, he told me that his boss asked for the coupon back because we'd "shorted him substantially." Needless to say, I refused, explaining that a) that's false advertising with the coupon and b) it's not my fault they may have accidentally ordered and installed an expensive part I did not ask for. He agreed and we left it at that.
Fast forward 9 months and guess what breaks? The very fill valve he installed. We call

to let

know, and he claims he has no records of the specific part he installed or where he got it from, so there's no way of knowing if it's under warranty. I have never heard of a business that does not keep any records. Furthermore, he has no interest in helping us out in any other way. I cannot explain what a nightmare it has been dealing with this company, but they are to be avoided at all costs if you don't want to

$250 like we did only to wind up with a toilet that's still broken.

I was preparing to sell my house when I noticed I had a leak in the ceiling of the bathroom. Initially, I thought the leak was coming from the roof, but it turned out to be coming from the sewer stack pipe in the attic.
Bill came out twice - first to diagnose the problem and then a second appointment to do the repair. My house is over 100 years old and this particular pipe was the original cast iron. On top of that, it was located in the attic and vented out through the roof. In other words, this potentially was a repair that could go south quickly.
After checking out the pipe, Bill clearly explained to me the situation and offered me different repair options. In other words, he gave me "best case" and "worst case" scenarios based on what may happen if he had to cut in to the pipe in order to repair/replace it.
Fortunately, Bill came up with an affordable, minimally invasive option that solved the problem. Because of the rather inaccessible location of the pipe inside the attic, he took a photo of the repaired pipe for me so that I have visual proof for the realtor and home inspector. Bill has also backed his work with a 1-year warranty, which has given me peace of mind.
Bill was great. Very professional, knowledgeable, punctual and thoughtful. I highly recommend him and would refer him to anyone seeking an excellent, reliable master plumber who knows his way around old historic houses.

They cleared weeds out the drain and 2 months it was clogged again. The new company I called was Sewer Solutions and they charged me the same amount 150.00 but they had a underground camera system. They showed another clog further upstream. I've had no problems since then.

Overall, this was a very satisfactory service call. I was able to book an appointment fairly quickly, and was able to discuss faucet options ahead of time. The business owner (Mr.
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
) was very helpful in talking me through the right brands to target while staying within my budget (since I was buying the hardware myself).
Service was performed by one of his technicians, and was done promptly and punctually. No mess left behind, and the installation was solid.
My one complaint is that he disposed of the packaging for the new faucet, which contained the paperwork for the product's lifetime warranty. This is partly on me because I didn't think to stop him before he left with the box. But when I called the company that same day to try and track it down again, I was told it would be dropped on my doorstep, and then it wasn't. I figured at that point it was lost and did not follow up.
For the most part, though, this is a good and efficient plumbing co. that I would use again. This is actually my second time using them so I feel qualified saying that.

In spite of using the plunger and drain-0 repeatedly on toilets and sinks throughout the house an ugly gurgling noise continued to occur. I snagged a drain cleaning deal on Angie's list for the $49 , which was credited back to me when the job was done. One night the sewer pipe running the length of the basement started to drip (not flood) at an improperly installed juncture dating from the home's previous owner, or maybe several owners going back in history. I called
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
late on a Wednesday night to
come out, but since we thought it wasn't that serious I agreed to wait until Friday morning.
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
's plumbers were late on Friday, citing heavy traffic as the reason. The problem turned out to be very serious! Apparently there was a leak further down the line right before the house sewer entered the street sewer. The pipe was buried in very old cement, and it was iron (the house is very old), and had rusted. Also, there was some blockage due to outdated structures and probably other causes of which I'm unaware. The way the plumbers figured it out was to rip out the old cement. They did not try to oversell anything. I was the one
who insisted that I would pay what I had to in order to get to the bottom of a problem. The toilets and sinks had needed
plunging and drain-o before, but the problem always seemed to resolve itself, so we thought we were doing something right,
but this time I suspected that the problem was more systemic and more beyond our control than we had previously thought.
The plumbers had to rip out drywall and cut some studs before they could reach the old cement to rip it out and pull out the old pipe, so the basement will have to be partially reconstructed. They carted away many, many bags of cement chunks, mud,
refuse, etc. Half the basement was flooded about a half inch to an inch with wastewater. The smell was horrific. They
never complained!! Later I found out that one of the plumbers had run outdoors to vomit. He was too polite to tell me. I learned through my husband. He also said it was the most obnoxious job he'd done in seven years, but he was glad to solve our problem for us. He had to weld the new pipes together in the basement, there being no way to take pipes outdoors to weld! So the whole house alarm system was constantly screeching, adding headache to stench.
The job continued into Saturday. The plumbers arrived two and a half hours late. When they left my home at 10 PM on Friday Mr.
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
sent them right out on another emergency job. They were so bone-tired, they said, that after a few hours sleep,
they never heard the alarm on Saturday morning. I'm willing to believe it, and I'm satisfied, even though I became anxious on Saturday morning, because the job was wonderfully done. The toilets and sinks drain absolutely beautifully. The men did a
wonderful job cleaning up. All I have to do is get the dust out. With open basement windows and a big box fan running constantly the smell is gone. The floors have mud-dust and all the furniture that I couldn't cover is covered with white,
but I couldn't be happier. I have a
Philadelphia Plumbers Provider Name Locked
of Lysol, and with the help of some professional cleaners, after I get repaired studs
and new drywall in place, we'll get the place looking and feeling like new. I'm very relieved and satisfied. In answer to your question, "Would you use this provider in the future?" I don't think I'll have to!I (Yes, of course, I'd use
