    Joes 2 Sons Plumbing
    Daniel arrived on time. He struggled for two hours trying to run 2 different snakes down the drain line. No success clearing whatever is causing the backup. Gave up. Declared my 2001 new plumbing was done incorrectly. He wanted to break into the ceiling in the basement or take out the back of the cabinet to expose the plumbing run. An additional $280 on top of the $403.65 he charged just to complete his inadequate attempt. He left two buckets with drain water and a very saturated towel (I provided) under the sink and left the house.

    Jafco Sewer Repair
    Excellent! Arrived right when estimated and had the equipment to locate problem (soft blockage after 49 years of living in this house). Done and cleaned up in one hour. Also located location of sewer line to street main sewer. Well worth the $100 tip given for job!

    Red Cedar Plumbing & Drain Cleaning
    Amazing and thorough service by Red Cedar Plumbing. Sandip came in and gave an accurate estimate and time needed and risks involved in replacing a very old Cast Iron Drain pipe. He & team worked his magic to ensure other parts of the piping is not affected and problem is taken care of without expensive non-necessary additions which other plumbers may offer. Pros - On Time, Detail analysis and estimate Thorough job with no incremental charges Very friendly and helpful in explaining the risks Cons - None. Highly Recommended

    Gene Johnson Plumbing & Heating
    I had a blocked toilet, due to what I suspected was too much toilet paper flushed down (kids + upset stomachs=much flushing) I attempted to clear the blockage with chemical toilet unblocker and a 3ft toilet auger/snake. I called Gene Johnson Plumbing & Heating (AKA Zoom Drain) and spoke to an operator. I provided details of the problem and explained than I have tried to unblock using my own auger and what is required is someone with a longer one to remove a blockage of paper. I asked for an approximate cost. The operator informed me that my area (1 mile from their offices) has a $49.95 call out fee, however he would not be able to provide any costs. This is untrue as the services provided are listed in a fixed price menu (more on this later). On arrival I went through the issue and again stated that I believe a longer auger that the 3ft one I owned would do the job. This fell on deaf ears though when they pulled out their laminated menu and went straight to recommending that I should put a camera down there to see what the problem is. Cost of this? $595+tax. I turned this down. I was then recommended they remove the toilet at a cost of $700+tax. Frustrated at this point I told them all that is needed is an auger longer than the one I have. The menu cost of an auger was $190 + tax. I agreed to this and signed authorisation. They head off to their van to get their auger and come back with a home depot bucket and an auger not that dissimilar to my own $10, 3ft auger. I did mention that I did not believe that auger would do the job as it was no longer than the one I had already used and I was very surprised that as a professional they did not have something longer/more substantial with them. Apparently there is one, but this is on a different van. Given I had already signed authorisation agreed to give it a go. They spent about 2 minutes trying to removed the blockage with the auger. Unsurprisingly it did not work. So, they got the menu out again. This time they were recommending jetting out the pipes. There were several options ranging from $700-$1795 depending on whether I wanted certain chemical used to clean and clear the pipes. The house is a little over 12 months old. The pipes will not have any sort of build up . Fed up with the constant upselling I told them I wasn't interested. Paid $209.19 (with tax) for their attempt using their auger. I was asked if they could email the invoice to me along with a link to write a review. I agreed to both. I got the invoice but not the link to review (I suspect they knew it wouldn't be positive) When they left I went straight to home deport, purchased a 25ft auger at a cost of $30. They were still parked outside by the time I returned and removed the blockage with it. I feel these guys will gouge and upsell whilst taking advantage of what for some is an urgent situation. They are not transparent when it comes to costs when you call and ask; I suspect that once you've paid $49.95 call out and have a guy in the house ready to fix your problems it's harder for you to say no and easier for them to sell their service at exhorbitant prices. Avoid at all costs.

    Drain Pro Plumbing Inc
    The water in our shower/tub started having draining issues over the weekend. We did the usual things that had worked in the past but nothing worked this time. By Monday morning the tub was backing up when you ran water in one of the sinks and wouldn't drain. I called Drain Pro first thing in the morning and they scheduled a service call for early afternoon. He arrived and got right to work, but unfortunately he couldn't get it unclogged through the tub. He then decided to go up on the roof and go through vent, that did the trick! We were so happy that it was an easy fix and we didn't have to go to the sewer line. Our service provider was processional, friendly and expedient and the cost was very reasonable. We would definitely recommend Drain Pro to family and friends and will use again with any future plumbing issues.

    Bob Oates Sewer Rooter & Plumbing LLC
    Slow drain was quickly resolved and other possible problems evaluated. I would not hesitate to recommend this company as they have dealt in a professional and trustworthy manner over the past several years.

    Bob Oates Sewer Rooter & Plumbing LLC
    The Tech quoted $535 to pull the unit off the wall to find the problem. Bigger job than I thought. $535 sounded very fair only once I signed the quote, he pulled the make shift plug out of the trap and snaked it from there. He replaced the trap and was out of there in under an hour. I feel like I was bamboozled for twice the cost of a service call.

    Beacon Plumbing, Heating, & Mechanical Inc
    *AVOID at all costs!!* I hired Beacon to snake my 6th floor condo and they did not snake all the way down to the main line, simply pushing the blockage to another unit, which nearly flooded. The only reason it did not flood is the owner happened to return home as the water reaching the top of the sink. When I contacted Beacon (after our Condo Mgmt team hired another plumber to fix the emergency properly), their customer service refused to share the additional cost incurred by reducing the bill for their poor work. Other reasons to avoid Beacon: 1. $75 fee to come out - charged ON TOP of the work 2. Flat Fees for everything - if your job is small/easy, you are better off paying by the hour 3. Upselling - beware of their suggestions for additional work at high rates 4. They don't care about your experience - they could have avoided this review with a simple gesture and acknowledgement of the error Simply said, the business model here is get there quick and take advantage of you. You can do better - pick literally anyone else.
