Finally, I'm sure if I tried I could have found someone cheaper who would have undertaken all my work, in fact I did for a few small jobs before I found
EXTREMELY DIFFICULT BUT HANDLED WELL BY THE GUYS . THE KITCHEN DRAIN IS COMPLETELY NEW PIPING
AND RUNS LIKE NEW ..
Right on time, our doorbell rang. The plumber asked a couple questions about the issue (notably, "was anything– an object– dropped in the toilet at any point?"– to which the answer was "no"), and concluded that our first course of action would be to attempt to use a drain auger (perhaps more commonly known as a "snake"). He informed us that the use of that device would cost $125 plus tax. We agreed to the charge, and crossed our fingers that it would be sufficient. After a few minutes of manipulating the auger, the plumber was able to unclog the pipe. However, in the process, the interior surface of the bowl had been scratched by the snake. When I handed over the check, I inquired as to how we would be able to repair the damage to the bowl, and he said that certain household cleaning supplies would do the trick (Scrubbing Bubbles, or Easy Off, for example), and proceeded to demonstrate. He spent an additional 10-15 minutes scrubbing our bowl to remove the scratches using a couple different products we had on hand, alternating between using a brush and a sponge. In the end, the toilet was restored to full working order, and the scratches were barely visible.
He also assessed the water level in our tank, and explained that it was not reaching the fill line, which resulted in weaker water pressure (a less powerful flush). In order to adjust the water so that it reached the proper level, we would have to replace the fill valve, which would be an additional $75 if we proceeded at that time, but would be $225 for a separate visit (suggesting that the visit itself was an additional fee, if services were rendered). We declined to spring for the additional repair, as this was the first time in 3.5 years that we needed to call a plumber for toilet issues.
The total charge was about $136 including tax, which was significantly lower than the obscene prices we were quoted by two other local companies ($225+ and $260+; and both charged assessment fees whether or not services were rendered). That said, it was still a little pricey for 5 minutes of work with a snake. But we were also given a 7-day guarantee, so should our toilet revolt again during that window, we could contact them for repair at no additional charge. Overall, we were quite pleased with the professionalism, efficacy, and helpfulness of the plumber we were sent, as well as the courtesy, professionalism, and responsiveness of the representative I spoke with over the phone.
they repaired it without adding to the total cost of the job.
New pipes were laid in the basement and 1st floor apartment.
professional manner. They came on time prepared to do a major job and did it well.
The piping work is beautiful. We are very pleased with the work. We highly recommend Apple Plumbing
