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...

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. ...

Scottish Plumber provided excellent service. Matt H. was awesome. Not only did he fix my issue, he provided information that will help me maintain my plumbing. I had three previous estimates that were twice as much as Scott Plumber. Scottish Plumber will be my go-to plumber from now on.
