ASump Pump Medic Inc
Acey showed up on-time, and diagnosed the problem quickly.  He offered the option just to replace the defective switch as the pump still works.  Even though this is a cheaper option, I chose to replace the ejector pump with a commercial grade pump as the old pump from Home Depot was over 10 years old.  Acey set 6 " digital switch on pump to allow bathroom content entry due to low entry line into pit basin, and tested pump equipment to make sure everything is OK.  He silicon-sealed the ejector pit cover before he left.  The whole experience has been great.  No hassles, and would definitely use his service again.

ARB Plumbing & Sewer Inc
Unfortunately, I moved into a house with a bunch of plumbing problems.  From your perspective, the good news is that I've tried three Angie's List "A" rated plumbers that serve the N. Chicago suburbs (the other two were M.D. Plumbing and AHS Plumbing).  R.B. struck me as the best of the three, though of course it may depend on who you get and how complicated the issue is.  Tim did my work today: he was polite, spoke English, showed up earlier than scheduled, seemed knowledgeable and experienced to a layperson (he contradicted something M.D. had told me, but his explanation seemed to me more likely/plausible), was patient about explaining my options to me, and did work that M.D. had also given me a quote for at quite a bit lower cost.  I may still get a second estimate the next time I need work just to confirm I am getting the best deal, but assuming they stay well-priced, I will use R.B. again and will ask for Tim again.  It's hard to tell how good of a job a plumber does until you've lived with it for awhile, and the work was just done today, but tentatively, my impression of today's work was a solid "A".

BGarrity Plumbing Inc
10yo automatic submersible sewage / ejector pump was blowing circuit.  Garrity replaced the old Zoeller pump with a new one.  Called them last night, they were here this morning.  Both punctual and patient with my questions.  The only head-scratcher is that the serviceman was unable to tell me which model he installed, or provide any associated literature.  Based on his thinking that it was a Zoeller model M267, I did a little price comparison online.  I was charged $545 for the pump itself, and a couple of hundred bucks in labor.  That's about two hundred dollars more than full retail for the pump.  Disappointing!

AGoode Plumbing
The plumber sent by Goode, George Makropoulos, arrived in a professional manner, on time, and ready to work. No plumber's crack here! George asked me a few questions about the ejector pump, and I was fuzzy on the details to say the least. My husband and I thought it may still be under warranty. He said he didn't want to "step on any toes", so he waited patiently while I found the info on the old pump and contacted the last company. After a very long time, the lady on the other end of the line discovered it was actually out of warranty and much older than either of us thought. At that point he asked again what I would like to do, gave me an estimate of the cost of replacement, and I gave him the go ahead to replace the pump. While he was replacing the ejector pump, he found that the check valve was stuck open and also in need of replacement. He even took the time to draw a diagram to explain the function of the check valve before replacing it, just to make sure I knew to what I was agreeing. He showed me the new ejector pump before he installed it, pointing out certain things on it. He answered all my questions about the nature of ejector pumps, such as seasonal work loads (most ejector pumps are replaced in the spring!), which part tends to wear out the first, so on and so forth. I'm a theater electrician, so the fiddly tech bits were interesting to me. When he was done, I asked about an Angie's List coupon that my husband knew about. He asked if we had an account, which we do, but because it's in another member of the association's name I didn't know the login info. Long story short, he gave us the discount even though I wasn't able to print out the coupon. Now, I would have gladly recommended him and his company to anyone who needed a plumber already, but that was the icing on the cake! It's always a potentially awkward situation when someone comes to work on your house, but George was extremely friendly and non-intrusive, and even my normally shy toddler had warmed up to him by the time he was finished.

Same from Lifeline Plumbing is really professional and efficient at his work and gave detailed answers to all my questions. What's really nice is that he spent time giving me maintenance tips after installing the new pump so it can last longer. Really like Sam's work and taking good care of the customer.

APASQUESI PLUMBING
Our basement bathroom was no longer flushing or draining, late in the day Friday after Thanksgiving. We had house guests. Pasquesi was here in less than an hour, called to make sure someone had arrived, found and fixed the problem and had necessary parts in place. Expensive because of off-hour rate, but great. Later learned my neighbor always uses this same plumber. May have overcharged a bit for time fractions - we paid $310 for 3.5 man-hours. Told us the new pump would be be "about" $260, but it was $345. However, I would use them again.

AKarl Meyer Expert Plumbing
I contacted Karl because my sewage ejector pump was failing. He came out within a day of me contacting him and surveyed the project. He was prompt in scheduling the replacement. The work was done professionally and the workspace was left clean. I will definitely contact him again if I need plumbing work done.

BFettes Love & Sieben Inc
The plumber showed up on time, was courteous, professional, put on boot covers prior to entering the apartment, & quickly assessed the problem. So far, so good... 30 minutes later he emerged from the closet with good news & bad. The repair was complete (the good news); he personally took most of the water hit (also, good news); & that other stuff in the closet also got wet (the bad news, especially after further inspection we determined that wet meant soaked or trashed considering that the water sprayed on pillows & comforters, wrapping paper, stuffed animals, etc, was covered with sewage water. Fettes Love & Sieben was responsive after a follow-up phone call & committed to cover the damages or get a claims adjuster to investigate. We assured them that the loss wasn't worth a claim & the company settled up the loss appropriately & timely. Despite the incident, our experience was a good one. We would still use them again in the future.

Recent Review: We needed a sump pump installed as ours gave up the ghost. I had actually called our old plumber, who I had found here on Angie's list, but he had moved out of state, so I found myself looking for a new plumber. I saw Excel's ad and gave them a call. I got very courteous service and was scheduled for the next day to come out, which I thought was wonderful! I thought I'd have to wait a few weeks for an appointment, but their being able to come out right away rates really high with me! Max arrived on time and was very friendly and knowledgeable.  When I explained what we we looking for, a new sump pump, he quoted me a very reasonable price. I then asked him what the cost would be if he used a new sump pump I had bought previously. He quoted a lower cost since I was providing the pump. I also asked him about a back up sump pump since our basement has two holes for pumps (who knows why). When we moved in, one hole was for the main sump pump and the other hole was for a back up sump pump, but the back up was deader than dead so we got rid of it, and the second hole remained unused by a pump, but empties into the first hole anyway so the water gets pumped out into the sewer by the main pump. Hope that make sense. Old house, weird problems... After discussing the best course of action, Max let us know that we could plug our sump pump into a battery backup and while the electric was running it would function normally, and when the electric went out, the battery would kick in. Pure Genius! Not only did it save me having to get  a second pump,  it saved me money too! (and I'm on a small budget!) I highly recommend Excel Plumbing and will use them again when I replace my water heater and re-do my bathroom!

Recent Review: Eric and his partner did a great job. They did everything they needed to in order to get my place back in working order, including cutting tile around the floor drain so the toilet would sit properly. Both of the guys were very nice and they did a great job cleaning up as well. They were very professional - so were the women in the office I talked to about scheduling the job. It's nice to finally have found a plumber I can rely on. I will use them going forward.

Recent Review: Rob arrived at my house the next day after my basement flooded. He fit me into his busy schedule, and finished the job before the rain could cause more problems. His prompt service was very much appreciated. Also, the quality of service he provides is well worth the cost compared to most plumbing services out there. I would definitely recommend his company to anyone dealing with plumbing or mechanical issues.

Recent Review: VSI is a professional and reliable company. They have helped me out on a couple of occasions in relation to our sump pump and each time I have found them to be knowledgeable, experienced, respectful and trustworthy. The most recent visit was to install a combination primary and battery backup sump pump. They carry the Pro Series PHCC line which is a premium brand with excellent pumping capabilities. The primary pump has a powerful pumping capacity of 3000 GPH at 10ft lift and the battery backup has an equally impressive 2400 GPH at 10ft lift - which is more powerful than many of the primary pumps on the market! I now have complete piece of mind knowing that, not only do I have a more powerful primary pump, I also have a battery backup pump which will activate during power outages or if the primary pump fails or cannot keep up with the volume of water entering the sump pit. Another advantage to this system is that it is much quieter that I hardly hear the sump pump cycle now. So, a big thank you to Anton and David for their knowledge and expertise and for being so patient in answering my many questions about this system and a big thank you to Paul for skillfully installing it. You all make a great team!
