DO NOT USE THESE GUYS - BAIT AND SWITCH RIPOFF!!!The details:We used these guys several years ago with good results so we thought we'd try them again. We just needed a cartridge replaced in a sink faucet and shower body. First off, when I sent in a request via their website my cell phone range literally a minute later. Hmm. The guy was ready to send someone the next morning but I told him it wasn't an emergency. We set up an appointment for that Saturday morning but the salesman (I can only assume) refused to give me even an estimated labor charge. I figured they did well by us previously so why not give them the benefit of the doubt.The plumber showed up on time and quoted me a price of $299 labor for the sink and $250 for the shower body. Really??? To replace two cartridges? PLUS PARTS mind you. I have Parkinson's disease and this guy is standing at my door, so I'm kinda feeling hamstrung. I have him do the work - he couldn't figure out the sink - and to get one stinkin' (shower body) cartridge replaced the total bill came out to $360 - and that's WITH a $25 coupon! I contacted the company about this and never received a response.I will NEVER use these guys again. HomeAdviser here I come!I'd have given this place ONE STAR save for the fact that the actual gruntworker was a nice guy.

Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
