Reviews in Boston for Emergency Plumbers

Boston Standard Plumbing, Heating & Cooling
1.0
I called on a 40-degree Saturday because my heat was out. I live two blocks away from this business and knew exactly what needed to be done and which part was needed. The answering service immediately asked if I was a service plan customer, and when I said no, she said, "After hours, they only take their service plan customers. Sorry." I was given no further information and no alternative recommendations. This company erroneously advertises 24/7 and emergency service, which is why I called. This is misleading. The company should specify that only certain customers can receive 24/7 and emergency service, and they also should equip their answering service with emergency recommendations for people who need them.

I called Saturday morning, and they replaced it, working into the early evening. Nice job, clean, and professional.

As this was an emergency repair, Joe was on site within 24 hours and had the job completely the same day. His work, as usual, was efficient and thorough. Highly recommended.

FYI - they claim to offer 24 hour emergency service, but that's only if you are a current customer. If you are not a current customer and have an emergency, you are out of luck.

Called Petros when we needed an emergency plumber for a broken water valve. He put up nicely with my complete lack of understanding of plumbing and inability to describe the issue over the phone. On-site, he was knowledgeable, friendly, informative. Checked out the issue, went out and got the part, came right back and had the whole thing fixed quite quickly. While in the house, he helped us look at a couple other issues, and as a Melrose resident himself, welcomed us to our new neighborhood. Great guy, great service. I have no idea whether his rates are competitive (we weren't in a position to do much research!) but if you need someone who knows his stuff, Petros is certainly your guy. We will certainly call him again.

This company was listed as performing "24 hour/7 days a week emergency service." We had garbage backing up in our kitchen sink (what we considered an emergency) and phoned them and left a message early on Friday evening. It is now Sunday morning, and we have had absolutely no response from them. If they don't want to actually provide 24/7 emergency service, they should not advertise that they do. We wasted nearly 2 days waiting for their call and not having use of our kitchen sink. It is Easter Sunday now and we are expecting guests later today and are in a real bind not being able to use our sink and having dirty dishes piled up.

Pros: one of the few places around here that will do emergency service. Very polite and professional operation. Plumber who came was efficient and got it done relatively quickly. Cons: price was high. No choice given of model or features of hot water heater. Sales pitch for service contract..the whole financial end seemed set up to extract maximum $.

Nobody answered the phone, instead I got a pre-recorded message that they have a 24/7 emergency line, would currently be busy on the other line and that I should leave my contact information and they would call me back within the next 10 minutes. No problem, I left my home phone number as well as my mobile phone number. Now it is Tuesday morning and this company has still not yet contacted me. I don't know how good their service is or how competitive their pricing might be, but they advertise to have emergency services 24/7 and that's not worth anything for me if I have an emergency and can't even get in contact with them....

Winters Home Services

Expensive (cost included a $100 after hours surcharge), but courteous and knowledgeable staff. In addition to performing the repair, they took the time to explain what they were doing in detail. I felt like I got a mini-plumbing lesson. Also, I was able to get them to my home on very short notice.

Shimon is the absolute best! Promt, fair priced, does quality work. I've used him several times before on smaller stuff, but he really came through on this. Texted him on Friday afternoon, had and installed hot water heater by Saturday AM

Floros Plumbing and Heating
5.0
My first time with Floros Plumbing. One of my best repair experiences. I called at 5 PM on a Saturday, and Peter was there within an hour. No-nonsense, he went right to it, first fixing the fast-leaking valve in my basement, then the leaking kitchen faucet. The faucet needed replacing--which I'm sure of because of the broken part I found when I had tried to fix it myself, but got over my head. He told me the unit he had in his truck was expensive but good. I did not feel pressured to choose it, and I like it better than the one I had picked out and installed previously myself. He told me on the phone ahead of time what his weekend rate is (I think it was $125 an hour) which I appreciated. The amount of time he ended up charging me for was a pretty conservative estimate--I really felt well-treated on price. Peter was efficient, responsive, courteous, and friendly (feel like I'm starting to recite the Scout Oath here). He will almost certainly be my go-to plumber in the future.

Recent Review: I contacted 4 companies for estimates. Kevin from Cooling Unlimited (CU) came within 24 hours and gave me an estimate on the spot which was com-parable to 2 of the others. The 4th one was not even in the ball park. The difference between CU and the others was because of the advice that Kevin gave me as well as his responsiveness. One company did not respond to several questions I had despite a phone call and an Email (the same com-pany that I had used for maintenance on my heating and AC for the past 15 years). I signed the contract, gave them a deposit, and had a new tankless hot water heater within 10 days or so - shortly after the old one let go! Mike the plumber was also a pleasure to work with and did a great job! I am very happy with my decision to hire CU and intend to use them for any other future HVAC issues.

Recent Review: Our kitchen sink drain was clogged, with standing water, It was a Saturday, so most plumbers ere not available. I tried calling Hercules through the Angie's List number, but it wasn't picked up, so I looked them up online. That number worked, and I and was told someone could show up within an hour. I asked about the cost, and was told it would be $150-225. The fellow arrived in about 30 minutes, and was very friendly and helpful. He found the cleanout access under the sink. I had just started taking out the items from the cabinet, but he said it wasn't necessary to empty it, just to remove a few items near the cleanout. He asked for a plastic trash bag (I brought two, just in case the first leaked), positioned it, and carefully opened the cleanout so the water drained into the bag. Then he snaked the drain with what looked like a cable device attached to a power drill. Within a few minutes he broke through the clog. He ran the device for another minute or so, and then started putting things away. He finished by carefully tightening the cleanout, and I noticed him using a rag to dab at some areas in the cabinet. The total time working was around 15-20 minutes, and he charged me $225 -- I used the current 5% off Angie's List coupon without a problem to make the final cost $213.75. I was grateful to have the drain unclogged on short notice on a weekend, but I have to wonder: since this was a fairly quick, uncomplicated job, under what circumstances would the charge be $150? I can't help but suspect that Hercules almost always charges $225, and I was given the range on the phone to make it seem like it could be less. The other annoyance is that, after he left, I noticed some dots of brown gunk had been spattered all around inside the cabinet, apparently from the spinning cable device. Perhaps that's what he had tried wiping with the rag? I had to take everything out and wipe it down, and then I found there was also a little water on the cabinet floor, including under the lining. It would have been better to take a couple of minutes to remove everything in advance.

Stow, MA

Recent Review: The owner/proprietor Joe arrived a little early in meeting with us. He listened to our needs and on the spot gave us three major options to consider: 1) Stick with a gas steam boiler, 2) Convert to a hot water boiler, 3) Convert to high velocity forced air with an AC option. It was apparent that Joe is very bright and knowledgeable. Within 24 hours he sent us via email a detailed quote for each of the above three options. We evaluated the quotes we got from four different contractors. We sent AMS some questions and a request for additional work. They responded within hours with all questions answered and an updated quote. AMS wasn't the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but they provided the clearest description of the work they offered to do and the products they selected to install. That made us feel comfortable. We went with AMS and option 1 mentioned above. The work was scheduled to begin in two weeks. They showed up exactly on time and finished the work in two days. They had as many as seven workers on site to get the job done quickly. The did everything exactly right and did a good job cleaning up. Our new systems work great. I give AMS a big thumbs up!

Burlington, MA

Recent Review: Our basement was leaking and we needed somebody to come in and fix it because there was water running down the board and they promise 24 hours service for practically anything you ask for. They are wonderful and I have used them probably for 25 to 30 years. The most recent work they did for was when I went down to the basement and discovered that there was water running down a wall between 2 big rooms in the basement. We don’t use the basement so when water is running down the wall there is something wrong and I called them. What was going on was that we were having a hole in a pipe and so they came in they figured out where it was and fixed the pipe. There aren’t many people whom we can call and get them in 24 hours. If you need a new water heater they will be in there in a day and you will have a new water heater that will work. They have done very good job for years. I have never had a problem with them. They promise to be there within 24 hours, they promise to get the job done and every single time I have ever hired them over for the last 30 years it gets done. They are not expensive.

Recent Review: It seems to be my month for plumbing emergencies! This is the second time I reached out to Power Plumbing in need of immediate assistance. My water heater stopped working and leaked all over my basement over the weekend. I immediately called Power Plumbing. Dave promptly returned my call--even though he was on a family vacation! He gave me solid advice and took care of the water heater first thing Monday morning! He also took away the old heater plus some other heavy items that I couldn't drag out to the trash. He was awesome!

What do customers in Boston say about Emergency Plumber?

My 90-year-old mother's central air system died in the middle of a heat wave, on a weekend. Not only did Dr. Plumber's come out on a Sunday, they made a special trip to check on the availability of a new unit, found one, and installed it the same day, all in 90-degree heat. Mom and I were very appreciative. Emergency services after regular hours are very hard to find. These guys went the extra mile and beyond to get this done the same day. If I could give higher than an A rating, I would. They are now in my phone contacts for anything we need done, not just emergencies, and I've been recommending them to everyone. The work was on the South Shore, but their home base is up north, so coverage of the area is excellent.
