A few reviews for this pro...


Kemphaus is a lifesaver! They did a fantastic job! I had four other plumbers for months who were unable to help me, one of them actually walked off the job. Ralph came in assessed the problem and fixed it in one day at a much more reasonable price than the others. I cant recommend him more highly!

I am so impressed with Kemphaus. Ralph and his crew are so thoughtful and courteous. I appreciate the fairness, professionalism and care shown throughout the process. I’m extremely pleased with how they seeded my lawn when finished and left looking in great shape. I highly recommend them and will definitely use for any future needs.

Ralph Kemphaus responded promptly to my phone request to examine the broken line and explained the steps required to replace the line. He outlined where the landscape would be dug up to place the new pipe and to minimize the disruption to existing bushes and trees. He was confident that the yard would be restored to its normal condition. He was true to his word. His quote for the job was very fair...

Excellent, Ralph, came out to the house and reviewed the issues and advised on the work to be performed and an estimate of the cost. Agreed to a date and time and they came on time and did an excellent job at a fair price. Everyone at Kemphaus Water Solutions was great to work with - highly recommend!

Description of Work
Storm drain cleaned out from front of house to gutters and fixed the gutter where it attaches to the ground drain pipe system to improved the water flow and prevent the rain water and sump pump water from overflowing at the drain coming out of the ground. Added new PVC pipe joints to help water flow between gutter and sump pump into the drain and siliconed the area as appropriate. Tested the water flow under pressure to insure it is working properly.

We had a great experience. Kyle came out the same day I called. They cleaned out the drains, and left everything nice and clean. Good job.

They went into the crawl space and put blocking and insulation to keep the water main away from the concrete foundation wall. The job was done in under an hour.

It went fantastic! I could not have asked for a better company to work with than Kemphaus! Based on our limited knowledge of the area, we first had a large name plumbing company (who I shall not name) come out to take a look. They quoted us over $5,000 just to the absolute basic work (of reattaching the main drain to the septic tank) required to fix the problem. We ended up calling around, and fou...

Description of Work
We moved into our home at the beginning of the summer and to our dismay, had a sewage backup recently. It flooded our finished basement and left us without the ability to use any water. With two small children and my teenage niece living with us, this was not a good situation. In total, we ended up needing a clog cleared from our main drain, our main drain reconnected to our septic tank, clog cleared leading to our leech lines, top of septic tank re-concreted from a crumbling septic lid, new access installed (about 3 foot riser installed), and cleaning of build up from inside of the tank. In total, about 3 days of work.

Ralph did a good job. The system he installed seems to be working good. Ralph is the kind of guy I would use again because I felt like I could trust him from the beginning on something I knew nothing about. He explained everything before he did it, always tried to keep me informed on how it was going, did a neat clean job, and he's easy to talk to. Got a firm price that never changed during the jo...

As stated above, we expected Mr. Kemphaus to meet with the concrete contractor, something he said he would do. It didn't happen. There were a few aspects to the driveway project that could have been improved had Mr. Kemphaus followed through.

Description of Work
This is a follow up to a recent rave review I gave this company. The work they did had to be done prior to our having a new concrete driveway put in. As noted in my review of the work, we were very pleased with the job, which was done professionally, punctually and to our satisfaction. However, this is criticism of the follow-up, or lack of it. Mr. Kemphaus promised to call the concrete contractor to arrange for a meeting. He did that but then cancelled the appointment and failed to respond to the contractor's texts for a meeting. I spoke with Mr. Kemphaus and he promised to get in touch but never did. There were a few issues that came up that could have been dealt with more effectively had he followed through. The concrete contractor is less than impressed and I'm not too happy with this either. While I'm still pleased with the quality of the work, communication is not a strength.

We are very pleased with the work Ralph and his crew did. He came for an assessment, and followed up by having someone put a camera down the drain to see the extend of the problem. Ralph came back to discuss in detail what the job would involve. He started two days later and completed the work in three days. They cleaned up, did a great job replanting the part of the lawn that needed digging up. H...

Description of Work
During the recent downpours, the drain outside our garage backed up, causing water in the garage that seeped into the basement. The drain needed replacing along with the pipes, which collapsed. A sump pump was installed in the garage, a new pipe was installed to carry water out to the curb. A new French drain extending the width of the driveway in front of the garage door was installed and regraded to allow the water to flow into the drain.
