    RJ Graham Plumbing Inc
    It was fantastic. They came back and were able to complete the project, explaining things as they completed it. They kept me informed as they worked. The estimate they provided was spot on. They finished in less time initially indicated, and really cleaned up after themselves.

    Reid & Pederson Drainage
    They arrived within the designated time stated. It took 20minutes to clear the drain. I was told that because I did unseat the toilet that it would cost less. The final cost was $ 420. More than originally quoted. He deducted $65. unseated from the 420 which brought it to the original 350. Then I asked for a senior discount 10%. Right ,you do the math.. should have been $250. Need I say I WARN AGAINST THIS COMPANY. Fool me once shame on you..you won't get that opportunity again. Yes I did call and complain. They refused to correct their mistake.

    We had a rusted pipe that we thought would require tearing out a wall, cutting out the t-joint and replacing it.  However, the excellent plumber from RJ Plumbing said, let's see whether we can use a new nipple to avoid cutting out the t-joint.  My first thought, which I said to myself was, hmmmm he seems to be opting for the less expensive option. I guess I expected price gougding, maybe from past plumbing experiences.
    However, I am overly excited to announce that RJ Plumbing was successful at unclogging the sink line and replacing the nipple and all is well with the world again.
    After experiencing a number of plumbers, all future plumbing business will go to RJ Plumbing.  Thanks Angie's List, can't claim success for this job without this excellent service.

    J&S Plumbing, Inc.

    Tub had not drained properly for weeks. We have a brand new toilet that was backing up about every 3rd time it was used. Conclusion is that we need to re-pipe (House was built in early 50s and has original plumbing in most of it) but they got the roots out of the lines (neighbor has two trees) so tub and toilet work for the time being.

    I want to add that we had tried without success to hire another plumber but he did not answer calls and when he did he said he was coming out and never did. Because we personally liked him we gave him chance after chance but I finally got fed up and looked for another plumber on the List. This company answered their phones, told me the flat rate, said they'd be out asap and were. Called before coming so I could put the dogs away and were prompt, courteous, professional, clean and responsive. Such a relief!!

    Lifeline Plumbing Heating & Cooling
    A previous plumber was unable to clear the line and told us that the (in-ground) pipe had to be replaced. I tried to get them to provide an estimate but they decided they were too busy to do the job. One estimate I did get was over $3500. I contacted Lifeline and was able to make an appointment for an 8 AM visit. Unfortunately the technician, Sam, did not receive notice of my location, over an hour from Elgin, until that morning, so he arrived quite a bit later than expected, but at least he called while en route. After I explained the situation to him, he asked me what kind of rodding equipment the other guy used. He said the had a bigger, stronger, more powerful rodder that could probably get through the line. He figured there was a 60-70% chance that he could clear the line and that the pipe did not need to be replaced. So I took the chance with the $250 job. He got the water draining within about a minute of rodding, whereas the previous guy was at it for about two hours.Based on the good flow in the line, lack of mud in the line, and the rodder not catching on the pipe, he concluded that the pipe was not cracked and did not need immediate replacement. The cost of $250 (after an Angie's List discount) is not peanuts, but it looks like calling Lifellne Plumbiing saved us thousands.

    RJ Graham Plumbing Inc
    First canceled on the Saturday, stating the drivers truck broke down. I understood, just bad luck. Rescheduled for the Tuesday morning. Came in and got the washing machine and bathroom done that day. Only problem there is he measured the washing machine, told me the washer and the dryer would fit best this certain way. He set up the water lines off of water heater. He finished, left. I set up the washer and dryer. It did not fit with the vent hose included. I got it in but am going to have to cut a new hole in the wall to put the permanent vent as it is smashed right now. When he came back on Thursday to do the kitchen sink, he stated that he just took it for granted the dryer was the same width as the washer. Sorry. He got the sink repaired, stated that he was not sure if the sink was rodded out completely. It was not and I had to have him back to rod it out the following week. It was done at no charge. Overall, he was better then any other contractor I have had, but I would not say they were excellent

    Reichelt Plumbing
    Ok the company sent a guy out and he spent four hours here. He was unable to clear the tub drain and did, however, fix the sink.
    He told us the tub was not fixable without tearing out the plumbing and that it was going to be, basically, remodeling the bathroom.
    This worker never used a snake in the tub drain. He needed equipment from us-- buckets, paper towels so on. He sold us two enzyme products that were very expensive.
    After he left we called another plumber who came out, rodded the tub drain with a power snake, charged a fair amount and left, having fixed the tub drain in about 20 minutes.
    I wrote a review and Reichelt contacted me, offering to refund our money and apologizing. We chose to pay anyway, since the guy was here and did get the sink cleared. I appreciated the offer. It made me think the company was much better than we had initially thought.
    Nevertheless, I think it unlikely that we will use them again.
    I thank them again for caring enough to contact us.

    Plumber Joe Inc
    Began with the washing machine dumping into the bathtub. So innocent! Escalated from there. Had to call Joe repeatedly to come back when we thought everything was fixed but it fell apart again. Toilet wouldn't flush, no washing machine stuff ike that. Eventually they had to dig out the front yard: the local pundits marked the wrong place for the pipe so they dug a trench about 6 feet deep but it was in the wrong place because they dug where the Village told them to.Joe and his crew were here day after day trying to put things right, and they did. They never seemed annoyed or upset with the job, they just did what they had to do. Very professional, but nice,

    Plumber Joe Inc
    It was a long and arduous project full of serious frustration for all involved. The Village of Park Forest mis-marked where they thought the sewer line was so a lot of time was lost looking for a line that did not exist. They re-measured according to their own experience and moved the Backhoe over several feet and found the line.

    Every time we thought the problem was solved and they left, we would discover that in fact it was not working. Three days Plumber Joe and his company spent here, uncomplaining and working extremely hard to solve the problem. Finally, on the third day with the help of a camera they found the difficulty and were able to break the clog apart and restore service.

    His response was immediate, professional and friendly.

    They told us it was fixed the1st time but was not. We ended up with raw sewage in our front yard.  They came the day after we notified the landlord and excavated and laid new pipe. They were very hard workers in high heat. They cleaned up best they could afterward.
