Septic Tank Maintenance reviews in Fremont
There was a bit of a mileage charge since my house was outside of their normal service area, but it was relatively minor.
I called a couple different plumbers but to snake the drain and hopefully that would solve the problem. It would be a minimum of $99 for him to walk through my front door. I agreed as I was desperate and needed someone to resolve the issue immediately.
He walked around my home looking for the clean out access so he could get his snake in and clear the blockage. He immediately struck me as kind of an odd fellow who was not very friendly but I thought nothing of it. He found the clean out that was furthest from the street and immediately told me that he wouldn't be able to snake properly because the clean out was the wrong size and it would be $600 to fix it and snake the pipe. He would have to come back the next morning to fix it and then he would be able to snake it. I reluctantly agreed because I didn't have any other choice at this time.
The next day he come back, switches the size of the clean out and sends the snake down the pipe. He comes back to me 10 minutes later and tells me that he can't unclog the drain. He suspects major root damage and blockage that can not be fixed using what he claims is the most expensive, top of the line snake money can buy. There aren't any trees in the vicinity so I was reluctant to believe that roots were the problem. The only other option is for $250 he can put his camera down there to access the situation. 5 minutes later he tells me that the camera can't see anything. Really???
He tells me through the sensor in the camera he pin pointed exactly where the clog is and has to be caused by root. The clog is right outside my front door, 1.5 feet below an 8 inch concrete slab. He will have to
At this point I've already paid him $850 dollars and he has fixed absolutely nothing. I try to explain that I've already paid him to snake the pipe and he spent 5 minutes doing that maybe he should put it back down there to complete the job I've already paid for.
This is when it turned really ugly. He starts slinging accusations at me and became rude, aggressive and threatening. I immediately asked him to leave my property as the situation escalated I began to fear for my safety. This man is not to be trusted. My business partner was at my home and witnessed the exchange.
I paid him the $250 for the completely useless camera just so he would leave my property.
After he left I called Mr.
Bottom line - STAY AWAY FROM
I am posting this so no one else has to be ripped off by this guy. I am also worried that he will come back to my house and do something crazy. I may have to get the police involved.
