: I called
on short notice on the Saturday before Mothers Day. I was told that I had two other people ahead of me but that he would be out to my house after their service call was finished. It was late in the afternoon when
showed up, but he made it. He checked the main line only to find that the problem had fixed itself. He wished me a good-night and said there was no charge.

Sewer Cleaning reviews in Philadelphia

My family owns a commercial building in the city with a restaurant as a tenant. A couple of days before Christmas, we noticed that the sewer pipe had backed up and approximately a foot of sewage had spilled into our basement. I called
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
based on the recommendations of others on Angie's List and I was not disappointed.
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, from
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, called the next morning, said they would be at the building at 9:30am and arrived as promised. They were very pleasant and spent the next couple of hours with a motorized snake cleaning out our 4" sewer pipe, which was clogged by grease buildup from the restaurant. After unclogging the pipe, they ran the sump pump to empty the basement, and then followed up by putting a fiber optic camera through the pipe to show me that the clog was gone.

They also gave me a quote to replace a section of the sewer pipe that had become corroded and cracked. They came back a few days later and completed the work as expected. All-in-all a very positive experience...at least as positive as sewer water in the basement and a broken sewer pipe can be.

I would definitely recommend

to anyone who needs plumbing work done and would use them again in a heartbeat if I need plumbing work done to the building.

I have modified this review based on subsequent things I have learned. I originally called them the best in the business. I don't think that is true anymore. I learned for example, that no permit was filed with the city to do this work which is very surprising to me. While they worked all night to finish the job, there were clear violations of safety rules made which could have been dangerous in not shoring up the trench walls securely. I also discovered that there is another technology called trench less sewer replacement which would have been a much better solution but was something they could not do. My final discovery was that the original new trap put in only 6 months ago had a hole at the bottom of it which would have eventually clogged the drain. Not putting in new intact piping when you are paying over $12,000 for a job is simply not excusable. The rest of my review below is still true.

What do you say about a team of plumbers who literally worked from 8:30 AM to 9 AM the following day to finish what some have called the "worst plumbing job" they ever encountered. It was an amazing marathon of work. They literally dug a trench with a backhoe up a steep hill and around a precious tree in order to begin the job at 9 AM. They dug 20 feet into the ground in order to find the sewer line only to discover that it was
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and it was recommended to me not to replace it. They told me around 4 PM after having dug all day that I would have to have a new contract for more money but that they would dig into the middle of my house, find the cast iron pipe in the basement and put a new pipe under the foundation of the house! I thought they would go home and do this the next day, but they decided to start that evening. They literally dug out the cement floor in my basement with
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and shovels to find the sewer line and then excavated a hole under the basement and under the foundation of the house. Meanwhile they used a backhoe outside of the house to dig out under the foundation of the house and placed an iron pipe through the floor wall which was the beginning of the new sewer line. They dug working backwards using the backhoe toward the
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
, adding pipe, connecting joints with lead at depths of 10-13 feet underground. At my request, they avoided digging up a tree that must be 80-100 years old and a retaining wall that would have cost a lot of money to replace. Working through the night and after midnight when I finally went to sleep some, they inched backwards to put in a new sewer line, trap and vent at the
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and then hooked it up to the street sewer. When I got up in the morning, they were putting the final mounds of dirt over the trench and worked on sweeping up my neighbor's walkway which was buried under three feet of soil.

I have a few minor complaints. They smoked too much and left butts around the grounds. The molten lead was on the grass and I will spend some time cleaning it up. The soil was simply replaced without tamping which means that I have to wait a few weeks before replacing the cement walkway so that the soil can settle. And there are a lot of big rocks that have to be removed in order to landscape the property.

But I remain in deep admiration of the dedication and work of these sewer line workers and the backhoe operator. They really worked on no sleep to finish this job despite my own admonition that they should go home and get some sleep. I am reassured that they all got the next day off.

On Monday morning, March 22, 2010, I
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
online for a plumber who specialized in fixing clogged drains. I called
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and they had a plumber available that afternoon. They called me prior to the plumber arriving and shortly later they called again and said that their plumber was unable to unclog the pipe because the
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
trap was broken. They said that they would send me an estimate to do the necessary repairs. The next day, I received an estimate for $2,300 to dig up the sidewalk and replace the broken
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
trap. Since I was not able to physically see the broken
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
trap, I called another company to verify what I was being told by
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
. The other company was able to unclog the drain after about 5 minutes of work. They said that the
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
trap was fine and that the clog was due to a T.V. antenna that had been dropped down the vent. I called
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
and asked to talk to the owner. About an hour later, a guy named
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
(not the owner) called me back. He took no responsibility for
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
telling me incorrect information about my
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
trap. When I told him that I would be reporting what had taken place on line, he cautioned me to be careful what I said because I could be sued.

My experience with them was very good. They gave prompt service. I called them. They called me back the same day. They came out with the estimate the next day and did the work the following day. They left my basement cleaner than it has ever been. The price was fair. It cost me $1735. I have not had enough plumbing work done so I
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
?t really know but I think it was expensive. When I break it down by the hour; there were 2 people and they worked for probably less than 8 hours. They were here by 9 in the morning and left by around 4. The labour was $1400. That is a lot of money. When we go by person, I think it is a little bit cheap.

He called me the same day. He came the next day. He gave me the estimate. Everything he said about what he was planning on doing was in line with what I thought. I did not go with him because of the price. He quoted me for $2200 and I thought that was a little bit high.

I had a heck of a time getting someone here to do the work. Seems like it's a busy time of year for plumbers and drain cleaners. I was a bit annoyed because I called
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
on a Tuesday evening, talked to their answering service person, but never got a call back. Had to call back myself Thursday morning; the receptionist apologized and explained that sometimes the boss doesn't get or check the evening messages. I dunno about that, but Thursday afternoon

and

called and said they'd be there in 15 minutes, and they were.

The drain pipe from the washing machine and the first floor toilet overflowed simultaneously in my no-basement house. I first went to the Verizon Yellow Pages where
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
has 10% off coupons. I next called Angie's List and found he had a good rating. When I called the company I mentioned Angie's List and
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
arrived within two hours. He removed the first floor toilet and worked hard and long to clear the blockage by drilling into the pipe under the toilet with an electric machine. When the sewer line finally cleared, he tested it with water, sealed and replaced the toilet and thoroughly cleaned the bathroom floor. I couldn't have asked for a faster response or a better plumber. The company called the next day to make sure that everything was O.K.

Both of the above mentioned jobs were completed to my satisfaction. The representative from
Philadelphia Sewer Services Provider Name Locked
offered an excellent solution to what I thought would be a costly project relating to a water shut off valve. He saved me money and time. Upon completion of both jobs the workmen cleaned up after themselves. As a result of the service I received I will certainly make them my plumbers of choice for any future plumbing issues I encounter.
