Recent Review: I had a leak from my bathtub drain to the basement. I had 2 companies provide estimates. The first estimate was around $600. Holtmeier's estimate was $550. During the repair, one of the pipes fell through to the basement and cracked the sink in my basement and Holtmeier replaced the sink at no charge. I was impressed with their professionalism. I would highly recommend their services. Prompt, friendly and fast.
Recent Review: Had a small leak leaving water spots on the ceiling but the source was difficult to find. Jerry took his time and finally found the leak and had to piece together some irregular sized materials to make everything fit in a very tight spot under a whirlpool tub. His effort was greatly appreciated.

Jeff was very professional. He contacted me within a short time after leaving him a message. He was very punctual and called when on the way. I even asked him to fix another issue after he arrived. I have used him in the past for other repairs and will continue to use his skills in the future.

Great service! We needed new copper pipes roughed in for a new bathtub (drain, new faucet/shower lines) and a new toilet line run. We also had a leaky water heater. Everything went great-I would highly recommend Tarvin plumbing!

The job took 4 hours. After 2 hours, I asked how much longer it would take, and the worker said he was having a few problems (he never gave me any details). After 3 hours I told the worker that I knew that Tarvin Plumbing charges by the hour and that he needed to finish up. He finished the job after 3 hours and 55 minutes. The new diverter he installed leaked worse than the one he replaced. Tarvin sent another person out the following Monday to replace the diverter (that job took 3 minutes). I asked the second person how long it normally takes him to install a faucet like mine. He said 2-3 hours. I felt I was overcharged for both parts and labor. The initial amount he charged me was $503.92 (that was with the Angies discount). I complained to the office and they reduced my charges to $400.00. I supplied the faucet with drain parts, but the worker still charged me $41.00 for additional parts. The diverter was an additional $50. The reputable plumbing supply store where I bought my faucet said the plumber could supply one of those and that it would cost around $10. I felt I was overcharged but accepted the $400 charge because I am not a plumber and was not smart enough to ask what it would cost up front. I assumed installing a faucet on a pedestal sink was a fairly short job. If I had been given the second person that came out, it would have been. On a positive note, the sink faucet seems to be functioning OK (so far).

I called Tarvin to have them install a new faucet and handles to my daughter's tub because we were going to have it refinished for her while they were on vacation. I had previously purchased the hardware so all they needed to do was remove the old and install the new. When the plumber arrived, he said that the drain pipe also needed to be replaced. Per his suggestion, I agreed to have that done as well. He said he needed to turn the water off at the main valve. He also said that it would be better to leave all the hardware off until the tub refinishing was complete. At that time, he would come back to put the pipe in and install the new faucet & handles. Again, I agreed since he was the professional. He proceeded to remove the drain pipe and old hardware. As he was leaving, he said I just needed to contact the office to set up a return visit to put everything back together. The tub refinisher was scheduled for the next day. So I went over to my daughter's house early that day to wait for him. When I walked into the house, I saw that the ceiling tiles under the bathroom where the tub is had fallen and that there was water everywhere--in the first floor hallway, the living room, kitchen, & basement. I called Tarvin and told them they needed to send someone back out ASAP. About 1 hour later, someone from Tarvin arrived. He assessed the situation and said that the main water valve was old and apparently was not turned off completely. (He could see the dial still running on the water meter). So the water was dripping all night long. He said the plumber should have capped the pipes on the bathtub before he left. He also said that they should have installed the drain pipe and new faucet because the tub refinisher could put covers on the hardware when he was doing the refinishing. It was a huge mess. We had to have a restoration company come to dry out the house and disinfect--~$3500. Then all the ceiling tiles had to be restored and the hallway and floor painted. The insulation in the basement had to be reinstalled because the water had seeped through the first floor into the basement insulation. After the heaters and blowers were removed, Tarvin came back and installed the drain pipe and faucets AND changed me $625 for the work. Tarvin's insurance company paid for the damage--not the $625. My daughter's family had to live with huge heaters and blowers for 10 days in July. Her electric bill was 2.5 times higher than normal. I know Tarvin gets excellent reviews in Angie's List because that is where I found them. I'm sure this was just one of those unfortunate accidents, but I also thought it was important to make others aware of what happened when we used them for our plumbing work.

I recently used Rich Holthaus Plumbing at the suggestion of my brother. I had a tub re-glazed and noticed in the process that there was a leak at the overflow. The technician and I determined that it would be best to have the plumbing fixed prior to the completion of the glazing. I called Rich Holthaus Plumbing and met the plumber the next day. He looked at the situation, assessed the problem, had the parts in his van but needed a second person for some assistance. He called the dispatcher and learned that there was not another person available at that time. This meant he would need to return at another time. We determined when he could return and made arrangements for him to gain access to the house (it is unoccupied and I live in Kentucky and needed to return home). I asked how much the job would cost and was told it would take him about an hour at $90 an hour. He also gave me an estimate of the cost of the parts (about $110). I expected a bill for about $200. Instead, I received the invoice for $468 ? much more than I was expecting. Labor was $355 and materials were $133.
