Previous plumber was here for over 2 hours snaking that same drain with no success. These guys had it cleared out and working in under 30 min. They were very professional, informative and courteous. Highly recommend.

They cleared two of my sewer lines, a 3 inch and a 6 inch main, and replaced a cap. They came perfectly on time, were freindly, outlined cost ahead of time, and charged exactly what they said they would. Will definitely use them again!

after another company came and attempted to fix my problem, but failed to do so. Called them Saturday morning about 930 and the tech was there by 1100. Pretty good response time (my issue was not an emergency). My downstairs toilet was bubbling when the upstairs toilet was flushed. The tech asked some questions and diagnosed the problem as a clogged main line. He then augured the main line, which was very blocked (been in the house 30 years and don't think it had ever been done). Took him a little over an hour total. He was very nice and made sure to not make a mess (these situations can be extremely messy). Considering what other plumbing companies charge, I thought this company was very reasonably priced for the amount of work. I will definitely be using these guys again when I have a plumbing issue.

I posted my service request on Sunday evening. I had a response back within an hour. Answered all my questions and scheduled my service call for the next morning. I had requested a text when they were 30 min away. They sent me a text, and showed up on time. They fixed the drain, checked to make sure it was reworking fine two times, and left....More /> Great experience! (

Got clear explanation of what is covered with the deal, which is all we needed.
Cleared a slow side drain. Took video of the main drain connection to the city main sewer line, which looked fine. Did not see pipe breakage so all is well.

This was a much larger problem.

the sewer line exit from my house and the turn it made toward the street. He provided me with an estimate and advised me to get multiple estimates. I did not need the coupon; the cost of his labor was less than the coupon.

seemed very forthright and honest; his price seemed very reasonable. I have occasional root problems with my sewer line and he would be my first call.

I called the provider about a clogged toilet. The plumber they sent was rude and treated my wife with disrespect. He tried to pressure her into spending $600 to unclog the toilet ($250 to remove the toilet itself which another plumber did in about 2 minutes for free as part of the estimate).
He said we would never find a price cheaper than $600 when my wife sent him away. I couldn't find another service as rude or as expensive as this one. I guess they are unique in that respect.

I would like to preface my review by letting you know I'm a single woman and first-time new home owner.
The gentleman who showed up first wanted to know if I had outside access. I do not. He looked in the basement and saw that the exit pipe was only 3 inches rather than 4. He said he only had a 3-inch cutter that wouldn't work and he wouldn't use a smaller one for the job. He said that for a minimum of $800 he would install an outside access and then use the cutter.
I called a friend who is an expert in all house repair matters and he said, first, that a 3-inch cutter probably would fit, but that the inside access should definitely be tried first even with a smaller cutter. When I asked the gentleman from Ace why he wouldn't try using a smaller cutter he said he couldn't guarantee his work and that he didn't want to use the inside access anyway because opening the pipe would result on sewage on the floor. He said he didn't want to have to clean up all that mess - he's been doing this a long time. I told him I would try to find someone who would be willing to use the inside access. He shrugged and with a slight attitude wished me luck and informed me that after today he wouldn't be available until after the weekend.
I called another service. They arrived 2 hours later and used the 3-inch cutter (which DID fit) to work through a bunch of roots. The line was not terribly backed up so there wasn't an unreasonable amount of sewage that came out when they opened the pipe. They hosed off the basement floor and my bill will be less than $250. They explained it's best to try this approach and if it seems there's a recurring problem then we can investigate before taking any particularly costly action.
I can't help but think the gentleman from Ace was taking advantage of the fact that I am a single woman with little experience in house repair.

WOW!! This is the kind of provider you want. Called company to schedule pumping. Office staff was friendly, knowledgeable and made sure all the information was corrected. Initially said the truck could be at the house in one hour but called back to let us know it would be an hour and a half. The drive called a little over and hour later to say he was on his way and would arrive at the house in twenty minutes. When

arrived he told us what he was going to do and kept us informed as the project went on.

was knowledgeable and checked the float alarm and pump. He cleaned the filter, emptied the tank and cleaned up the mess in just over an hour. It is great to work with a company that is friendly, knowledgeable and keeps you informed about what is going on. Most companies would not have called to let you know the truck would be 30 minutes later or that they would be at your house in 20 minutes. Mos.t companies would not have kept us informed or gone the extra mile to check the other parts of the system.

also referred me to the company website that has good information on your system. The coat was almost $200.00 less that the company that cleaned the system 5 years ago and they left a mess for me to clean up.

Job went very well. I called and spoke directly to

around 2 pm. My elderly mother had water leaking out of clogged floor drain and I was going out of town the next day.

said he could definitely come and agreed to call when he was on his way. He called around 6 pm and arrived just as he said he would. He was professional, fast, and explained what he found. Cost was in the range that he had quoted by phone. Would definitely call him again. Thanks,
