"Our house is a 1960s ranch-style home and most of the plumbing is original - mainly American Standard. Leaks had gradually been developing in two of our showers and more recently it had become difficult to turn turn the cold water on or off in one of ...more them.

was able to get there earlier than expected. He diagnosed the problems quickly, went out to buy the parts and swapped out the old stems. The hot water was still dripping in one of the repaired showers, and he was able to track this down to hard water deposits in the shower head.This caused water to collect in the shower head and dribble water for a while after the faucet had been shut off, mimicking a leak. Removing some of the hard water deposit fixed this problem.
worked quickly and efficiently, explaining things as he went along, and cleaned up tidily after he finished. He also showed me where the inside main shut-off valve was in the crawl space and made a helpful suggestion about how the existing fitting could be improved. We are very happy with the work and grateful for his being able to come so close to the holiday. "

Wichita Plumbers Reviews
"the plumber picked up a new hot water tank, brought it to our house, took the old one out and replaced it with the new one and hauled the old one off.
Also we have had this plumber out before to fix a stopped up kitchen sink. He is very professional gets his work done well.
was very nice and prompt on his time. He is very knowledgeable on what he does and very efficient with his time. We have never worked with another plumber that has been as friendly and honest with things. I would absolutely recommend
"I first called due to severe rusting and small leak in a pipe on the hot water heater. I was concerned about the leak in the utility room where three large furnaces are also located. they sent someone over within the hour who gave an estimate and looked at another concern I had and gave his input on what the fix should be. He suggested a larger tank ...more than the 40
home sized tank we had. The upgrade would help with the other problem we were having with hot water not getting to the kitchen. I asked when they could come out, they were here the next day!!
was the tech that came out. He was very friendly, professional and patient with me and all of my questions. He installed the new hot water heater, took the old one away and left the workspace clean and looking better than it had when he arrived. I will absolutely use them again and recommend them to anyone looking for a plumber. "
"The plumber arrived on time. He was clean and very pleasant. He went right to work repairing the leak in the drain pipe for our kitchen sink. He had to go under our house, in the crawlspace, and was very efficient with his time and work. He repaired our issue very quickly. We would definitely use this plumbing contractor again in the future! Their ...more work was excellent and very proffesional. "
"I actually did not check any other places for pricing but I did use the Angie's List 5% off coupon.
The plumbers arrived on time and even went to the store two times to get pieces that I thought I had in order to complete the order!
The work looks very professional and clean.
They also explained in detail how to use the backup sub-pump.
One ...more of the better Wichita companies I have used thus far! "
"A pleasant person to deal with. I regret not getting the drain checked as it is slow and Angie's List advertized a full check of plumbing system for $49, but that may be our fault for not being more specific about the problems we sensed were coming.
"I had 3 companies come to my home to give estimates for this particular job. I am a HUGE advocate for customer reviews so I did my homework prior to scheduling.
was not the lowest bid. The lowest bid, to me, doesn't always mean the best job gets done. (You get what you pay for). I had
come out and ...more give me the estimate and I liked the way he told me what needed to be done and how they would go about it. I'm a very detail oriented person and it was important to me to know what would take place. His bid was exactly the same amount as the first bid but the first company made me nervous and it didn't involve replacing the entire cast iron pipe. That was a deal breaker for me, as I really wanted the entire thing gone and replaced with PVC.
told me that was what they would do.
The morning of the repair
called and told me he was on his way. I appreciated the heads up. He called at 7:45 and told me he would be at my place in about 45 minutes. I remember the time because I was informed that they would be at my house all day and because they were working on my sewer pipe I knew I had to restrict my liquid in take. He and his partner,
, arrived at my house at 8:30. I remember this very precisely.
was very nice and professional.
didn't talk much, but that was ok. They had to
hammer into my foundation in order to access the leak and remove the cast iron pipe. While doing so, it shook another pipe loose. It was brought to my attention that it was corroded and would need replaced as well. I asked what that would do for the estimate. He told me it would be included. He showed me the pipe that corroded. I was really glad he replaced it. He also replaced my water turn off valves as they were also toast. I thought that was above and beyond what was expected.
By 4:30 they were done. They had to clean up the mess and then they asked me to inspect the work. I'm no plumber, so it looked good to me. And they did a great job with the mess clean up.
I was originally quoted $1300 by
but the total ended up being $1600. Being an Angie's List member I printed a coupon and saved 5% ($80) off the total which brought the total down to $1530. I was charged for 10 hours and they were only there for 8. I specifically remember them being done by 4:30 because my husband gets off of work at 3:30 and is always home by 4. They were just finishing up smoothing the new concrete at that time. And when you haven't gone to the bathroom all day, after about 7 hours I started watching the clock! That is my only complaint. I questioned the 10 hours when he told me but after 8 hours of them in my home I was ready for them to go. I thought they did a great job. I would definitely hire them again. Next time I will have them acknowledge the time they arrive in order to not be overcharged though. don't let this
you from hiring them. All I'm saying is be aware of the time and make sure to speak up if you question it. They really did a great job! "
"Ok, so last night my husband bailed water from drain for 3 hrs due to non-working sump pump and using sprinkler system. Called
this morning. He bought new pump, installed and had work done in three hours. He was courteous, efficient and rates were terrific. We were in a terrific bind, and this ...more guy was above and beyond. Please hire him!!!!! This is why I love Angie's List, "
