Kabatin Plumbing
I love Kabatin Plumbing and would recommend them in a second. He's saved me four times now. He is the most fairly priced contractor I've ever dealt with. He prices materials at cost or barely above it. When other plumbers quote $200, he's charged $90. I will never call another plumber again. I don't usually review people or companies, but I'm so grateful for his service, I wanted to repay him by spreading the word. Yes, sometimes it takes two calls to nail down the time for your non emergent appointment, but if you have an emergency, he'll be there asap. If you're impatient or judge people based on their uniform, call Ben Franklin and pay 3x as much. SteveKelseyville, CA
Tips & Advices
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?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
  • Before calling a plumber, try to unclog your drains and toilets yourself by using a plunger.
  • Make sure you use a standard bell-shaped plunger for your sink and shower drains and a plunger with a flanged end for your toilets.
  • If neither type can loosen the pipe blockage, put a plumber's snake to use.
  • Ratchet the snake down the pipe to eliminate any clogs.
