Sewer Cleaning reviews in Ewing

    Two service men arrived at the scheduled time. They looked at the leak and brought in an electric snake. They opened the lines and ran the snake into it. This took about twenty minutes. I asked if they were finding any problems and one service tech said yes, there were several rough spots. They removed the cable. It had roots in the end. They reinstalled the cable and ran it another ten minutes. When they removed it the cable end was clean and somewhat shiny. They said "we have run the snake all the way to the sewer main. This shiny snake cutter means the pipe is broken and there is sand filling it. There is nothing else we can do. We will send out another service person with a camera to scope the line at no charge." A second appointment was made for 4:00 the same day. They then proceeded to review the existing sump pump well for first time installation of a pump. They quoted a price for the sump pump that was five times higher than any pump listed on line plus $199 to install. When I asked for a labor only price, they tripled the cost of the labor. They looked at the cast iron plumbing under the toilet and told me I could not repair the flange and would have to cut out the pipe at a cost of about $1,000. They then quoted a price for a garbage disposal that was also multiple times higher than market prices. The second service person arrived just after the appointed time. He looked at the water seeping from the cleanout valve and said that scoping would be a waste of time. He indicated that the entire line had to be replaced. I asked why he was there then and he said it was to give me a quotation. He proceeded to tell me that his was an emergency situation, that his folks were professionals and the only option was to replace the entire line. He must have used the word professional ten times and "emergency" at least fifteen times. This is not an exaggeration! He then proceeded to give me the company spiel even though I asked him several time just to give me the quote. According to his presentation, if I went with anyone else, my yard would be destroyed and people might get killed by collapsing ditches, he then quoted a price of $14,000tp do the job. He stated that he was only charging me for 75 feet of pipe even though it was 100 to the sewer. When I said that it was too expensive, he offered first a 5% then a 10% senior discount. When I declined, he increased it to 20% because he "had staff that we're currently under utilized". He then told me this price was only good while he was at the house. I declined. He did not provide me with a written quite. After talking to several other professional plumbers, I determined that the shiny end on the snake cable meant nothing. I was also told that there was no need to cut the toilet pipe in order to repair the flange. I was also told that some companies flip the labor and equipment price so they don't have to bargain on labor charges. The township sewer admin sent two people two days later who snaked the line and cleared it in about 20 minutes. The line was blocked at the reducer into the sewer.There were no problems with the pipe at all. This experience was incredibly traumatic for me. I don't know if the employees were following company policy or not but they did not do the job I hired them for and their actions appear to me to have been misleading and less than fully honest. I contacted A J Perri and asked for a refund. They transferred me to a quality control manager who indicated that she would refund my money but that it would take 3-4 weeks to cut a check from their corporate offices in Tennessee. I am currently waiting for the refund.

     I selected this company based on prices he had charged other Angie's List customers.    I was hoping I would be charged approximately the same thing for the same type of work.    He did show up promptly,  did the job successfully in a relatively short period of time (45 min),  however I think the $325 I was charged was too high as others were only charged around $250.    I wasn't offered any senior discount or angie's list discount.     I definitely should have gotten an estimate first before he started the work so in some respects I can blame myself,  but I was relying on what I saw in the reviews.   Other customers had been charged less  for the same work.
    In response to whether I would use him again,  only if he lowered his price.

    A TO Z Plumbing & Contracting did a very botched job. Right now we're taking them to court. They put in sewer line and stuff. Their backhoe hit our house and not only that, they used a jackhammer in the basement and it cracked the floor and the wall, about 25 feet, so our basement ended up being flooded out. Our insurance company only compensated us for lost things that got wet in the water, nothing about our foundations and stuff. We're still having water. We have to use sandbags in the basement. It's been a horrific mess. We spent money to replace concrete that they didn't bother to do. It's just been ongoing, so recently, I filed with the courts to take them to court, try to get some of our money back. He already damaged our home the very first day because he hit a tree and then he hit our front porch. Nothing was done to correct that. Then it snowed, so he left the backhoe tractor left on our property. It wasn't until we woke up one day when it rained, we woke up and checked the basement and my basement was flooded, about five inches of water. It was a horrific thing. We had to call city hall in, a plumbing inspector. He came out, walking through the water. Water was coming in so fast because it had started to rain that evening before. From there on, we've had to replace things. We've had to replace concrete and pay another contractor. It was a lot of damage. The basement floor and wall was cracked, about 25 feet. That's how the water was coming in. Then we found out our chimney was damaged, I guess from using the jackhammer down there. It actually loosened the chimney. After that, we've been hearing rocks falling through our chimney. Then we didn't have hot water because the muddy water got into our hot water heater, so that wasn't working for a few days. There was a lot of things that went on. It was a bad experience. He does shoddy work. He definitely does shoddy work. People have to really watch out for him because he takes your money and then you don't see him no more and stuff. He didn't want us to put no money up front and all this stuff and then, he showed up at our house in January, asking for money and saying he needed to pay his hired help. So I wrote him a check for $6,000.00 and then we didn't see him until our place was flooded. He wouldn't take our calls.

    The first call we made to repair a leak from the bathroom went very well.  The plumber, (Sven), showed up in the time that the service had indicated he would.  He got right to work and showed where the leak was coming from and explained in detail  what was needed and the cost.  This visit cost us about 252.00.  The second visit was about a week later when we had a sewer back up.  These two gentlemen were very professional, friendly and also explained everything in full.  They were so good we decided to pay the extra 70 or so dollars for the service contract.   Will definitely be using their services in the future.
