Plumbing Reviews in Lawrence


Here is a summary of what happened:
1. On 3/24, a plumber inspected the problem I was having with pink water. He said that at least one of my water heaters was
rusting due to lack of electrical grounding, which was caused by the improper installation of my water softener. He suggested that I have an electrician ground the water heaters and then open up the water heaters to see if the anodes were damaged and possibly replace the water heaters. I wanted a second opinion so I contacted
because they had one of the
highest ratings on Angie’s List. Note that
is now (and was when I received service) operated by Snake and Rooter.
2. On 3/28, Snake and Rooter came out to inspect the problem. Dispatch told me that the inspection was free. During
the inspection, the plumber said he needed to drain a little of the water to see if there was rust coming out. He spent about 10 minutes draining the water into the drain in our basement (not a clear or white bucket). He did not tell me that he was going to charge me for this. I assumed this was part of the free inspection. He said that there was nothing wrong with the
water heaters. He charged me $95. I told him that I thought it was supposed to be a free inspection and he said he had to charge me for the time. He did spend some time at the house, but I expected him to do so to accurately investigate the issue. We continued to have increasingly rusty water.
3. On 4/11, I hired
Plumbing came out for a third opinion. They removed the anodes as part of their free inspection. Snake and Rooter did not do this or they would have seen that both of our water heaters had rusted anodes. One was completely eroded and the other was halfway gone. We ran water from the water heater with the completely eroded anode into a white bucket and the water was dark red, which indicated that the tank was rusted.
said that since the water heaters were relatively new (installed 2009), the damage was due to lack of electrical grounding. When the water softeners
were installed, the installers broke the electrical grounding and did not re-ground the water heaters. This caused electrolysis in the tanks, resulted in quick deterioration of the water heaters.
4. On 4/11,
Plumbing replaced 1 water heater and replaced the anode on the other.
5. On 4/11, Electric Plus re-grounded the water heaters to prevent further damage from electricity.
I sent an email and called Snake and Rooter about 7 times over the last several months trying to speak with someone about this issue. No one has ever called me back. Each time I talk to the receptionist, she tells me that the "manager" is working in the field and its hard for them to find time to return calls.
I respectfully asked that Snake and Rooter refund the $95 fee that
charged me. He did not tell me that the 10 minute he spent draining the water heaters was not part of the free inspection. Therefore, I believe that the charge was not fair. Also, it is my understanding now that it would have been impossible to see any rust in the water heaters simply by draining the water into the basement drain. Instead, he should have drained the water heaters into a white bucket to be able to see the
rust. So I feel that I paid $95 for an inspection that did not provide an accurate assessment of the problem.
Finally, I feel that the current listing on Angie's list is a bit misleading. While they do answer the phone "Snake and Rooter", if you don't catch that, you will miss the fact that
sold his business to Snake and Rooter. I expected the ratings on Angie's List to reflect the current business. I don't feel that it did.

was the only company who correctly diagnosed the problem we were having with our "pink" water. I had previously had another company come out and completely miss the issue (and charge me for their "free" diagnosis). Unbelievable.
is honest and do great work. They fixed it within a day or two of our calling them. They squeezed us into their already busy schedule since we had somewhat of an emergency waiting to happen. Would definitely call them again (the first time this time)!

was amazing. He showed up within a half hour on a national holiday--Memorial Day and worked 2 long days, into the night, to locate the site where my pipes connected to the city sewer system.
- Lynn D.

Did not show on first appointment. Confused about installation, asked same question several times.
Work quality was good, but price was high.

is good. I thought they were reasonable because I probably chose them but I was not the one who paid the bill. They did it very nicely. I give them a high rating. There were no glitches, they did what they said they were going to do and within the period of time that they said. I would give them an A on pricing just because it was something within our budget so I would say it was affordable for the common person. For punctuality, they are fair because I guess I'm from the old school, when you say you're going to be there at eight o'clock, you should be there at eight o'clock but it's not a huge thing. I give them a B on professionalism because they had a guy working for them who didn't work out real well and they ended up firing him but the boss of the company was A1. I will absolutely use them again.
- Kathleen E.

Arrived in timely manner, got to work immendiatedly and was careful to set up so mess would be limited. Did job efficiently and provided advise to avoid problem in the future. Answered a variety of questions pertaining other plumbing issue in the house. Will hire back to complete those non-emergency jobs.
- Luis G.

We were pleased with the services completed. The serviceman was friendly and fit us in to his tight schedule despite it being a cold spell with lots of frozen pipes busting at the time. I will use them again!

did a great job. Hired them because they had the top rating on the List and their prices were the same as a big box store even though they are based in KC. Tech arrived early and was out early. The work was clean and efficient. We had been scheduled to get a humidifier on the same day. I strongly recommend them.

was prompt and courteous, and did a great job. He checked with me about drain fitting options, and also informed me about a slight maintenance issue that he had found and taken care of (the shut-off valve packing nut had needed tightening).
- Cole R.

Came on short notice (next day) to accommodate schedule. In addition to the above,

had to relocate drain pipe in wall and gas line that were improperly installed by renovators. Only did the tasks requested and had all parts needed for the work. About 3 hrs work-time.
