Burbank plumber incorrectly installed cleanout, member says
I hired Michael’s Valley Plumbing of Burbank, Calif., to snake a drain and install a cleanout to fix a sewer backup while our regular plumber was on vacation. Several months later, I had another sewer backup that flooded the bathroom.
I called my plumber, and he said the cleanout was in the wrong location and at the wrong angle, making it useless. Also, my plumber said they capped the cleanout incorrectly, and due to these errors, when a backup occurs it flows into the house and causes extensive property damage. I paid $1,200 to avoid this damage.
I want a refund of $1,200 so I can hire my plumber to correctly install the cleanout.

Have a complaint?
Our Angie’s List complaint resolution team attempts to resolve disputes between members and service providers. During this process, three outcomes can happen: Penalty Box, Resolved or Stalemate. Companies that don’t respond to a member’s complaint will be placed in the Penalty Box until they respond. A case becomes Resolved if a company addresses the complaint to the member’s satisfaction, or it becomes a Stalemate if the provider responds, but the company and the member can’t reach an agreement.
