Recent Review: I called the folks at Standard Water Control as they had initially installed the drain tile and sump pumps in my house before I bought the house in July 2012. The drain tile was installed in 1997 along with the original sump pump. The back-up sump pump was installed in 2004. I replaced the back-up sump pump batteries last fall. I ended up replacing the original sump pump myself with phone help from the employees at Standard Water Control. I did buy a new sump pump onsite for $320 and found that the price is about twice what you can purchase similar models for on Amazon. So, I think the item was a bit overpriced. Anyhow, this company has a good reputation and was helpful over the phone and in person, so i will use them again in the future as needed.

Recent Review: I called Porter Plumbing after I went in my basement and realized my sump pump had quit working, flooded my basement, and ruined my water heater. They had done some work for my parents a few years ago, and seemed like a pretty respectable company. When I called they said it would be a few hours before they could make it out, which worked out well because I had a few meetings at work. I met Eric at my home and he was very polite, professional, and considering the circumstances I wouldnt be in the mood for humor, but he smiled and made the situation seem not as bad as it was. Which was comforting. He said that he may be able to replace some part on the water heater to get it working, but it was 12 years old, and he recommended buying new considering the age and condition it was in. The sump pump was bad and needed replaced as well. Overall, I thought that his price was kind of expensive, and told him I would call him back once I decided what I was going to do. After calling another company out to quote me for the same work I realized that Porter's price wasnt bad after all, plus, I felt confident that they were capable of doing the job right. They came in that afternoon, replaced the water heater and sump pump, took the old heater (for a small disposal fee) and got it done quicker than they quoted so it was actually less expensive than what I thought it was going to be! I would refer this company, and really appreciated the good service. Thank You! I would have preferred to pay with a credit card but they didnt accept cards. Maybe that would be something to consider in the future!
Recent Review: They scheduled a time, showed up when they said they would, and took care of the problem. They previously installed 3 new toilets and a sump pump for us. They respond quickly, do good work, charge fairly, and we LOVE that they are local and will use them again. Highly recommended!

The sump pump installed when the house was built nine years ago was making a funny noise Monday morning after a night in which the city got 2.5 inches of rain, and for years I'd wanted to get a backup sump pump installed, so it seemed time to call a plumber. I called Cook Plumbing and left a message, but they never returned my call, so I checked the reviews on Angie's List for a good plumber. DDS Plumbing seemed to come highly recommended, so I called them to schedule a time to check the sump pump and install a backup. I was originally scheduled for Tuesday between 1-2 p.m. I waited until 2:30, but had to get back to work, so we rescheduled and the company offered 10% off the job due to the scheduling glitch. I really think the scheduling glitch was unusual for them. Plumber arrived today a little early, which was great! He checked my sump pump, which, of course, was no longer making the funny noise and in fact seemed to be working fine. There was a lot of pea gravel in the pit, so the plumber thought perhaps the funny noise that I heard Monday may have been caused by a loose piece of gravel. He determined that my sump pump was working fine, then ran out to pick up the Zoeller backup sump pump system, and returned to install it. Between the trip to pick up the system and the installation time, it took all morning, but he only charged me for two hours of service time. The 10% off was very helpful, because I had really underestimated the cost of putting in a good sump pump backup system. He was helpful and professional and cleaned out the pea gravel that had collected in the bottom of the sump pump pit. I will definitely call DDS Plumbing the next time I need a plumber.

Lee was very responsive to my questions about the job and quote beforehand. I could tell he had the experience I was looking for. I also like using local businesses. His work was clean and he was respectful to the area he was working in and cleaned up his work area when done. I also liked his payment options being on line. I would definitely use Lee again and be happy to refer him to anyone looking for a plumber hvac repairman.

All phases of the job went well. The technician was courteous and respectful in every aspect, he even covered his shoes to prevent any potential transfer of debris or shoe markings to our hardwood floors. He did an initial assessment of the condition of the current pump and verified it's failure. He then presented us with several options for the replacement . The work was completed in a timely manner and the work area left in good order.

I called early in the morning on Labor Day after discovering that our sump pump had failed after a heavy rain. A technician arrived a couple hours later and promptly replaced the sump pump. From talking with him I know he had several pumps to replace that morning which probably delayed his response but I was happy he could take time away from his family on a holiday to take care of our problem.

Discovered our sump pump was no longer working. Called Paul and told him our situation. He told us what he could do and when he could be here. All was reasonable. He called us back to let us know he was on his way. He very quickly resolved our problem. He also explained why we had our problem. He went over the warranty of the pump he installed. An excellent warranty by the way. Five years compared to the usual three. Was very happy with his service. Professional and polite. Great job Paul! Thank you again!

With the 7.36 inches of rain that fell June 30, my sump pump and backup sump were overwhelmed and we think the 16 year old primary sump pump burned out. The DDS plumber had trouble even getting to my house due to nearby street flooding, but he found a way. He got the backup sump pump working properly but couldn't get a good replacement for the primary until the supply company opened on Monday (though he offered to get another brand from Menards for me, I elected to wait until he could secure the brand he recommended). Returned as scheduled on Monday, July 2, and replaced the old pump with a Zoeller. Very happy with the service.

Came home to find wet carpet in our basement. Did not have a plumber so began the process of reaching out to family, friends and finally Angie's list. Read the reviews regarding DDS Plumbing on Angie's list and of all the plumbers listed they had the most positive reviews. . Called them at 6:45 am and they were at our door within a hour of our call. Assessed that the sump pump needed to be replaced. It was 22 years old. Provided advise on what we needed to do with the water on the carpet and what to expect about the new sump pump. The price was very reasonable. You know when things go wrong in your home they never seem to be at convenient times. So to find a professional that was extremely responsive and help us with the issue so quickly AND not over charge for the assistance is amazing. Plus give us a 10% discount is wonderful. Have already decided that we will definitely hire DDS Plumbing again to help us upgrade fixtures. We would highly recommend them and appreciate how well they took care of us. Totally eliminated our worry and concern.
