I have been using The Scottish Plumber for many years. I made an appointment for my parent’s house as their basement flooded and the sewer water was very high. Frankie came out and explained things very clearly. He was the best. With all the rain we had, he first checked the city sewer water level and it was flowing very good or not backed up. We have a sewer clean out in the front yard so he rodd...

Very well. Tom Tolari from The Scottish Plumber checked the draining at the point of the backup and then checked the sewer line from our house through the yard out to the city's sewer line. Tom spent about 45 minutes checking the flow of the water through the drain and made sure all the discharges from our sinks and toilets flowed correctly. We could not determine why the backup had occurred becau...

Successful. Troy was very professional and explained options to us. He made us feel very comfortable. He also explained the different areas of service the Scottish Plumber provides which was very helpful. He was very thorough in his work and excellent at his craft. We would definitely return if we need service again.

Great service and work! We called for a quote to have our pipes routed out. We suspected that there was a root in our drain. Scottish came out and set up shop very quickly, running the machine to find the root. All in all he got it done in less than an hour. Tom gave us his card which offered $25 discount off of the next visit. They did not overcharge us for this service. We are very happy with Sc...

I looked on line for a plumber who could come out as soon as possible to help stop the flooding of my basement. Tom Tolari came within 40 minutes after his assignment for the day. He was able to open the outside trap and rod out the drain line. The water immediately started to drain. He was pleasant and professional leaving the front yard looking clean. Thank you Tom Tolari! Jessica took my call a...

PVC pipe was put in and work was completed (the guys who did the drywall did a mediocre job in the first floor bathroom). After 5 months we began hearing water dripping inside the wall when the 2nd floor hall bathroom sink and tub faucet are used. I showed pics of some of the work done to another plumber who pointed out that either incorrect joint compound was used, or no joint compound was used. ...
