John came out on a Sunday to check out the system that went into alarm. It turned out the the pump had broke. John cheerfully found the problem, replaced the pump, made sure the unit was working properly and was pleasant and informative the entire time. Really great, responsive service.

RJ Graham Plumbing Inc
5.0
I e-mail R J Graham Plumbing about replacing a defective value on a sump pump and replacing the sewer erector sump pump. A young lady respond within an hour as well as call and left a voicemail message. Upon returning call, they were able to schedule me for service the next day. Jim was on time, professional and gave me the Angie's List customer price. He recommended the best value to each sump pump. The job took approximately an hour no more than an hour and half. Jim left the basement clean and removed all the debris with him. I would definitely use R J Graham for my next plumbing jobs and recommend them to my friends and family. Thanks for your service and customer service.

He was punctual and quickly determined a course of action. Then he left to his office to obtain a replacement ejector pump. He explained that I had the option of cleaning and replacing the existing pump but didnt recommend it since the existing pump was already 10 years old which is equivalent to its estimated useful life. So he proceeded to replace the old pump which took about 2 hours. I cant comment on price because I didnt shop around, but the price seemed reasonable.

RB Plumbing & Sewer Inc
5.0
R.B. Plumbing and Sewer, Inc. quickly responded to our call and scheduled a visit to our home for sump pump maintenance and service. Wil and his coworker thoroughly handled the situation needed by replacing the injector pump and rodding the sewer line. Wil in prior visit had indicated that the sump pump electrical box needed repair prior to sump pump replacement due to age, rust and corrosion of the electrical box. Once this was repaired, Wil and is coworker were able to complete their service. Wil answered all of our questions and explained what he was doing during the various stages of the service work. Thank you Wil and to your coworker for the expert service, greatly appreciated. Thank you R.B. Plumbing and Sewer for your continued professional service.

J&S Plumbing, Inc.
5.0
These guys were very professional, quick, and courteous. Daniel explained my options for preventing sewer backup into the house and helped me choose the one I wanted. J&S got the permit for me and came out about a week after we confirmed what we wanted. They got everything done in a day, and cleaned everything up - there was a huge pile of dirt when they dug out the sewer line, but it was all cleaned up by the end of it. They really did a nice job. Daniel explained how to service the clean check, and another coworker explained how to handle the new backup pump. I was very pleased with their service and would definitely recommend using them again.

RON'S TIDY TANK SEPTIC SERVICE
5.0
I noticed a septic smell in the home and after a bit of troubeshooting I was able to determine that the pump in the lift station appeared to be non-operational. I called Ron's mid afternoon and an ~hour later a service team was at my home. They quickly confirmed that the pump had died and offered me three options for replacement. Explained the pro's and con's of each and within 30 minutes had the new pump installed and operating. Both members of the team were very friendly, worked quickly and answered all of my questions along the way. In the past I've only use Ron's for pumping out my septic tank, a service that has gone very well, but it is nice to know that their quality service extends to the other services they provide.

CARL'S SEPTIC
5.0
He pumped out the tank. He found that the pump that empties our tank out into the field was shorted out and flooded. He cleaned out all the water from around the pump, and then told us to leave the lid out to dry out the engine for the day. Later that night, we reset the fuse, and the pump appears to be working again. He cleared out 2500 gallons from our septic tank. He educated us on how septic fields work--you don't pump them out; once they are full, you need to make a new field. He seemed a bit gruff, but he was nice and capable, and he did his job. We were a little surprised by the fee, but he said it was because he removed so many gallons of waste. Usually it should be closer to $200 he said. They did give us an Angies' List discount of $10, which we were happy with. Overall, we were satisfied, and we will use them again.

BLACK GOLD SEPTIC
5.0
Although I found Black Gold on Angie's List, they were also recommended to us by the company that installed our well and septic. This was our first time using a septic cleaning service, as we recently moved into our home. We were shocked to find our that the system had never been pumped since the home was built 12 years ago!!! Black Gold found a problem with a pump switch which we were able to replace ourselves. They also recommended buying a better pump and having it on hand, since the model that had been installed was known to have issues. They backfilled the hole and replaced the sod as well as they could have. We will definitely use their services again.

Perfect Home Services
5.0
They were wonderful. I asked them to rod out the sewer line going down the street. I had a camera put in there 2 years ago and had pump repaired and replaced. They were very nice about it; they came out and did what I asked them to do. That was all I paid for and it was great. They came out in late June.

The Scottish Plumber
5.0
Saturday AM I saw (yep, saw) that my Ejector Pump was not working. Based on their A+ Reviews I contacted the Scottish Plumber and they said no cost for the estimate, and we can be by in an hour -- pretty hard to argue that. 2 great Service Techs arrived in a Scottish Plumber Truck...did a 5 minute eval and wrote up a Proposal for them to do the repair now. They ran out to pick-up the parts and an hour later all the work was complete, the bad (very bad mind you) parts were removed from my property, the area was left cleaner than it started, I got a recap of exactly what they did, plus they gave me some suggestions on Warranty and Preventative Maintenance. Very professional, very punctual, very clean, very competitive very though.... A+A+A+

RON'S TIDY TANK SEPTIC SERVICE
5.0
Crew came out as scheduled with a call 30 minutes before that they were on their way. They found a cracked cement cover which they replaced for $30 and were done with the service in about 40 minutes. I used them about 4 years ago and continue to be happy with their service and cost.

BOB'S SEPTIC SVC
5.0
Our neighbor referred Bob's Septic Service to us and we have used their services several times over the past ten years. They are always prompt and courteous. During the most recent visit, they even told us that based on our household use, that we should extend the service interval by an additional two to three years. As their tagline says, they are "#1 in a number two business". We agree.

Recent Review: I could not be more pleased with my experience with Goode Plumbing. I literally don't know anything about plumbing and they took care of everything from start to finish and helped me understand along the way. The customer service representative that I spoke to on the phone regarding scheduling was very helpful and patient with me. Develle was the actual plumber who showed up and he was super professional and knowledgeable about the work. He took one look at the sump pump I had and was able to date it almost exactly. He also knew that I needed a new one, but he did not try to up-sell me on the product. He simply gave me the facts and let me decide, which I appreciated since it was an expense I was not expecting. Needless to say, I followed his advice and the peace of mind I have now overshadows the unexpected cost. That said, I thought the cost was very fair for the actual product and labor. Overall, I would totally use Goode Plumbing again!!

Recent Review: I have used Lifeline a couple of times. Last winter, they did a HUGE project for us - excavated our driveway, put in two check valves on our sewer line, installed an ejector pump - now there is NO water backing up into our home because the sewers are too full from heavy rains. They were great on that job. Recently, we decided to call them when one of our sump pumps was acting strange. And, as expected, they were very responsive, on-time and professional. I have met a few plumbers who work for Lifeline and the owner. Everyone is very nice and explains what is going on and what needs to be done. I never feel like I am in the dark and I am never confused. They also understand families have financial restraints. They will do their best to give you a fair price and offer discounts when possible (within reason, of course).

Recent Review: I called to schedule an appointment. John the plumber came out promptly and on time. He explained the work that would be done and provided me a very competitive estimate, a lot lower than the first estimate I received from a different company. John was very polite and professional. The crew showed up on time as scheduled. They too were very polite and professional. The crew was excellent. These guys really know what they're doing. John went the extra mile to make sure I was very satisfied with the results. I would definitely call them again for plumbing and sewer service.

Recent Review: Edwin responded to my call quickly and was able to come out and inspect the problem - a broken drain pipe and sump pump. He was able to get a crew out in the next couple days and rod the sewer line and patch the pipe and replace the sump pump. His crew did a professional job and cleaned up everything and put some concrete around the sewer lid to help keep the smell out. Will call again in the future.

Recent Review: I looked for a plumber/sewer service close to my address and found Vanguard Plumbing and sewer. I called , explained my ,dilemma and he said he could have a technician there in a hour or so. George the technician called and said he was 20 min. away. He replaced the failed ejection pump. Then he checked the sump pump and backup power supply. When he finished, his manager called me and discussed what the technician had found and recommended what we could do to improve our system. I cannot say what a great relief it was to have someone that responded so quickly when they were called.

Recent Review: From the call to the Plumbing Department's office to completion of the rodding and camera inspection of our sewer line everything was done with complete professionalism and courtesy. We spoke with Stephanie at the office and she made it very easy to schedule our appointment. Jose came to look at our catch basin and offer suggestions on what to do. He was very courteous and explained everything that needed to be done as well as possibly more expensive and involved steps in case there was significant work to be done. Another appointment was made for the rodding and inspection. The office called in advance of Jose and Jeff Kafka's arrival at our house. Everything went extremely well. We couldn't have asked for a better, more professional experience. Without any doubt, we have found an excellent plumber to call again when the need arises. We would highly recommend The Plumbing Department, Inc.

Recent Review: First they pumped out the water and diagnosed the problem as sewer back up. They sent for the Rodger, but said we were off the clock while waiting for the Roderick. After rodding the line, they made every effort to clean up everything. Robert was extremely professional and explained everything regarding the work and the cost of the repairs. I highly recommend this company and will use them again.
