Mr. Rooter
Tree roots tore up gas line in backyard. Called 5 different plumbers. Mr. Rooter was the only bid that was bottom line. The other for bids were 'ballparked' at best. No "Well it might need this afterwards" or "Won't know for sure til we get to tearin it up". Was told it would take 1 1/2 days, and it did. Would i use them again....Oh Yeah. Customer for Life. TLB

Midway Plumbing
Outstanding Product, Outstanding Service! We decided to replace our 30 gallon water heater, which was 10 - 12 years old with a new 50 gallon water heater. So we called Midway. Midway's technicians showed up at teh scheduled time, 9 am and were done in less than 4 hours! How convenient is that! The technician was very informative prior to starting the job and explaining Midway's annual maintenance and 10 year replacement warranty - all included at no extra charge! Midway is well worth the money!
Tips & Advices
Even with a referral it is  best to hire a plumber to do a simple, everyday maintenance task for you first so you can judge his or her work. If you're happy with it, save their contact information so you'll have them on hand in case you need an emergency repair.
Water discoloration is  likely due to old iron pipes, or recent use of a hydrant or water main that disturbed the usual flow of water. Keep your water running for a minute or so and it should run clear after a while.
  • Are you licensed and registered?
  • Are you insured and bonded?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • What, if any, professional associations do you belong to?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • Do you offer a written warranty for your work?
  • Will I need a permit for this work?
It is important to have a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house, especially if it is a major repair. Look for a professional  who is willing to  stand by his or her work.
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
