A few reviews for this pro...


Keith C.

I called Monday late afternoon maybe 30 minutes before they closed for the day. They were able to get someone out the following day at noon to clean both the kitchen drain and lower level laundry room drain. Ron the Sewer Rat quoted $284 which is exactly what I was charged and very happy with the service and would for sure use them again!

Pre-visit communication was easy via phone email and text. Expectations were clearly explained and fulfilled. Our technician, Nick was prompt, communicative, and professional. The roots hadn’t been cleared out in over 5 years but Nick was able to clear them all out in just under the time it took for the base mainline cleaning price to be charged. We’ll be having them out to do the main annually from here on out.

My main backed up when I was doing laundry this weekend. From previous visits I knew it had to be blockage due to tree roots. Jon came today and knew exactly what to do. The price is reasonable and quality of service cannot be beat.

Perfect. They came highly recommended and I can see why. Scheduling and communication could not have been better. Cleaned out a huge amount of tree roots from our sewer line, showed video of the clay pipe and its condition, and gave really expert advice on how to manage things going forward. Tim is top-notch-- expert, smart and kind. Highly recommend.

After discovering a backup in the main drain, was able to schedule a tech to come out and clear next day. Did great work, was quick, courteous, and knew what they we're doing. These guys are my first call every time I need any sewer work done.

We scheduled three back to back appointments for drain cleaning and camera inspection. The tech, Tim, explained that, if I didn't need a formal report (we didn't) they could forego the extra cost to us as they perform the cleaning using a camera anyway. Excellent work and professional service, would highly recommend and am planning work for another family member, too.

Repair was prompt (same morning that I called), quoted and drain cleaned out quickly, and cleanup was performed. Very happy. Would continue to use Ron the Sewer Rat as first choice. Fair, prompt, and honest.

Andy and Fran came out; called ahead and arrived on time; they figured out what the problem was. They didn't have equipment to climb on my steep roof two stories up but helped me describe the problem so I can find someone with the right equipment. Friendly and professional. I'd call them again for sure.
