First, I will say that the work was done as requested; HOWEVER, I feel compelled to write because I feel completely taken to the cleaners for 1 hour of work. In fact, the plumber was here for less than an hour (even though the receipt indicates 76 minutes) and charged $468.35 for the minor rebuild, unjamming the disposal, and replacing the bathtub cap. I bought an Angie's deal where you get $300 worth of services for $200, so our total output was $368.35. The minor rebuild charge was $224.59, the disposal unjamming cost $150, and replacing the bathtub cap was $93.76. The last charge is what I mostly have a problem with because all the plumber did was go out to the truck and bring back a cap and popped it on the bathtub. I should have looked up how much such a part costs before going ahead with it. Every store I have looked online, it is a less than $10 part. I feel foolish for paying $93.76 for replacing the cap and shame on

for charging so much for less than an hour's worth of work.

The original problem was a clump of mold on a pipe under the kitchen sink. When the plumber looked at it, his recommendation was to replace the faucet, as a precaution. This seemed to make sense as we did not know if any of the mold had released into the piping. He then went about replacing the faucet. I should make it clear that we are renters, on good terms with out landlord who is out of town and it was our landlord who was going to foot the bill. At some point, the plumber had to go to his shop to get a part. My wife called me to the kitchen to see the new faucet, and it was this oversized

faucet that extended past the drain hole and took up the whole sink. Much too large and ill fitting in our opinion. I also happened to notice on his worksheet that he was going to charge $750 for the faucet and $350 for pipe removal etc.. Given this scenario, we were appalled! $1100 to replace a faucet in a townhouse. We were not given choices of faucet other than "Chrome or White" We called HQ and requested that this not be done. When the plumber returned we did not like the alternative he had. (not a lot of choices). We decided it was best if we got our own faucet and would just end the job at removal of the old faucet.
This is what the final bill looked like:
REMOVE OLD FAUCET: $188.10
REPLACE 3 WAY VALVE $256.22
REPLACE ANGLE STOP: $126.07
REPLACE SINK HOLE COVER: 46.61
TOTAL PRICE: 617.00!
This is with no faucet being replaced!
This felt completely over the top and bringing this issue up with

supervisor

Expect better from an Angie's List provider

The plumbing technician,
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, showed up promptly, did an extensive examination of indoor and outdoor plumbing (exclusive of outdoor irrigation system, except that he also inspected the indoor pipe runs of that system for leaks or incipient failures); reviewed his inspection report in detail with me; provided photographs of the extensive cracks in two older toilets; always asked that I accompany him to review in detail the work accomplished that day; also, reviewed in detail planned work for the next time interval; was very careful with house furnishings, and with floors and carpets to insure no damage or soiling occurred; cleaned up and hauled away debris.

also assisted in the selection of replacement toilets; I was delighted with his recommendations - cost effectiveness was a big factor - and now, with some three months of experience with the plumbing fixes, I am equally pleased. I would, without hesitation, engage

for any additional plumbing work I may have. And would certainly request that
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
be assigned as the Technician to do (or oversee) that work.

Awesome experience.

A. Arrived right on time at 8:00am. He went over each job with me and gave me a written estimate that was very reasonable. I knew it would not be a cheap plumbing day. Being a former contractor on a home restoration, I am very picky about workmanship and had had a repair by
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
in the past that wasn't the best but
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was superb. Being picky as I am, I watched everything he did. He explained as he went and used all quality parts, no plastic. He was courteous, knew what he was doing, knew why the problems had occurred and fixed everything to perfect satisfaction. I wish all repair people were as experienced and knowledgeable as

was. I will use

again but I will insist on

The service technician,
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
, showed up very promptly and was very courteous. I showed him all the areas that I was having issues. He gave me a quote and I sent him to work on everything. The longest job was the Augering of the toilet that I had been having clogging problems with. Unfortunately nothing was found during the augering however he confirmed a suspicion that I already had, it is a crappy low flow toilet (no pun intended). The problem I had with the washing machine is that basically hot water was coming out in a trickle. Once he cleaned the screens it started flowing like a champ. The flapper on the upstairs I could have replaced myself and $50 to replace a flapper is a lot of money in my opinion. They seem to price on job rather than the hour which can be good or bad depending on how long it takes them to do things. Unfortunately I didn't keep track of how much time he spent here because I was taking care of other things but I think it was around 1 to 1.5 hours. They did give me a discount of $20 for being an Angies list member, so the end price was $277. They did save me some money on a leak I was having by giving me a short term solution that I could do myself, so that I could save up for a long term solution. Overall I was happy with the company and would probably use them again.

We used a $99 outdoor faucet replacement deal a few months prior.
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
did a such a great job that we had them do our second outdoor faucet.
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
was helpful with general plumbing advice and made sure that the faucet worked with our hose before leaving. They communicated through the Angie's List provider message service, which I found to be convenient. Minor scheduling issue the first time they came out but they quickly called and remedied the situation. The second time there were no scheduling issues. Highly recommend!

At 6:45 a.m., having failed to receive a call from the first company I contacted at 5:00 a.m. requesting emergency service for a backed up toilet on my main floor, I called 4FastPlumbing and spoke with a representative who said he would put us on the list for the morning.

arrived at 11:00 a.m. ready to work. He identified the source of the problem as being a clog in the sewage line between the house and the septic field. This required some very dirty work on his part, but
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
performed the work without complaint. In fact, he was so good natured and pleasant in his demeanor, my husband was singing his praises when I phoned home to see what was going on. This is the quality of customer service we hoped for, and
Fairfax Plumbers Provider Name Locked
delivered in excellent style with professionalism and enthusiasm. We will definitely use this company again for our plumbing needs.
