Recent Review: My sewage ejector pump was not functioning correctly, so I called Crisafulli on a Thursday. They had replaced the motor 14 years ago, and since I plan to sell this house within a few years, I wanted a new pump (rather than fixing the old). They set up an appointment for Friday morning. Todd called to say he was on his way. He arrived around 10, we discussed the situation, he took measurements and he called his supplier. He asked the supplier if we should switch to a grinder pump, but we were told to stay with the ejector. Todd went and got the parts, including a new tank lid. After several hours of work, the pump is new and that area of the basement looks much better. The new lid and pvc pipes helped clean up the area. Todd was excellent at explaining the pump options and reinforcing what can and can't go down the drains. The price was reasonable for the work done, and I now do not have to worry about whether the pump is acting up down in the basement.

Recent Review: These folks are excellent. Very responsive to any concerns that we may have had. Always kept us current on the status of the project. All crew members and office staff were very courteous and knowledgeable. The work was completed efficiently and their fees are very competitive. The well ended up being 360 ft deep. The pump was installed and plumbed/wired into our house without issues. We are very satisfied.

Recent Review: Plumber arrived as scheduled.  Assessed sump area and explained in detail type pump he would install.  Sump pump is of excellent quality and should be very durable.  Plumber installed pump and sump area was filled with water to ensure it worked.  Pump triggered and removed water.

Recent Review: Having Benjamin Franklin Plumbing serve us was a terrible experience. On 8/4/08 we called for service on our basement sewage pump. Paul Eames was the representative that came to our home. Before he entered our home, I explained that I believed our pump was clogged with a personal cleansing wipe, that I knew that the pump was adequate in terms of its capacity and power, and that, no matter what, I wanted to retain possession of our current pump. Paul removed the pump, declared that because of the weight of the pump that it was grossly inadequate for the 1 bathroom that it served. He announced that, without question, the pump was completely burned-out, and that it would cost much more to try to fix than to replace. He explained that the original installer had lied to us about the capability of the pump, and told me that our pump was a "gray water" pump, entirely unsuitable to pump sewage. He mentioned a $1400 replacement solution, and a less capable (but probably adequate) solution for about $800. When I expressed financial concerns, he quickly began to niggle the cost downward for both options with statements like "Well, I could probably do it for you for around $600." He departed for a pump distributor and (fortunately) could not get an immediate replacement. When he returned, we let him know that we were going to have the original completely burned-out pump examined by the original installer. While Paul was putting the original burned-out pump back into place, he must have decided to check for a clog (or removed the clog he knew was there all along), and our pump is now perfectly operational. Upon investigating our pump, we learned that it is a "sewage" pump (not a gray water, or effluent pump), and that it is designed to handle loads exceeding our needs (i.e. it ejects 2" waste material, instead of the 1 3/8" waste ejection befitting our single-bathroom needs. Paul lied to us about our pump being completely burned-out, and about its capacity. He made unprofessional comments about the installer "lying to us", and he was unprofessional with price discount statements. He ignored our request that he explore our pump being clogged, and he tried to have us spend $1400 unnecessarily. That is not the kind of service that we ever hope to receive. Although in the end our problem was resolved, we endured unneeded stress, were lied to, and were nearly scammed. Please do not let this happen to you. Do not call Benjamin Franklin Plumbing.

Recent Review: He was very professional and was very kind to Mrs. Lane concerning the flooded items. He also waived the weekend/holiday emergency charge even though I said that wasn't necessary. He was respectful and very nice. A true gem.
