Thank you for the review. I strive very hard to be very clean and conscious of my workspace. I wear shoe covers in the home and lay down a mat at my workspace. I truly am sorry if I over looked my area, and again thank you for the straight A report

We called The Plumbing Department Inc. in a panic on a Saturday afternoon after several attempts of trying to unclog our toilet. Jeff scheduled a visit with us that same day and provided us with a two-hour window during which he'd arrive, and even followed up with a text when he had a more accurate ETA. He was very prompt, professional and neat--he left our bathroom spotless after completing the j...

Jeff did a great job. He was very professional and timely. He came to the house within 1 hour of my call requesting him to look at the kitchen sink/disposal/dishwasher which were all backed up. Jeff cleared the clog and thoroughly flushed the lines. He was very careful not to make a mess and cleaned up once he was finished. Overall job took about 1 hour. All three are now working great.

Rodding a kitchen drain line with grease and food waste can sometimes be messy, so I prepare the cabinet and flooring to be covered with rags and mats. I try my best to leave my work area cleaner then when I arrived. Thank you for the review and I appreciate the work.

Thank you for the kind review. This call ended up being an inspection on her plumbing system due to a high water bill (tripled from last bill). After looking over all possibilities we narrowed it down and her next water bill should be back to normal. Thanks again Jeff The Plumbing Department Inc.

he's a fine, efficient, personable, trust worthy plumber.

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Arrived quickly in the evening and diagnosed problem, made sure no water would leak from broken water heater. Was willing to take me shopping for new water heater that night, recommended proper new water heater, which I purchased, along with fixings. Was willing to do repair that night, but this wasn't feasible in a condo with neighbors. Returned early the following morning, removed and hauled away broken water heater, installed customer owned new water heater and copper pipes, repaired badly installed pipes, installed customer purchased drip pan, installed it.

I would like to thank you for rewarding me with the work. We took a ride at 9:00 pm to the home depot that evening where [member name removed] purchased her water heater. [Member name removed] is a very knowledgable person, it was a joy to hear about stories from her past regarding work and her family. This is one of the benefits of my job to meet interesting people such as [member name removed]!!...

I saw about an inch of water on the basement floor. Called Jeff and he located the leak on the thermal expansion tank. He replaced the tank and gave me a sensor to place on the basement floor. This sensor will buzz if there is water on the floor avoiding future water damage. He also connected the water line to my new refrigerator. Jeff is always quick to respond to my calls and when he arrives he ...

I really appreciate you having me out to fix the leak at the expansion tank. When I arrived there was a large amount of water that had pooled up around the water heaters and started to venture into other parts of the basement. Although the leak was minor, over time it made a real mess! Thanks again for the work.
