I remember this lady, the first time I was there, was to fix a leaky toilet. So I walk in the door and the first question was ,how much will this cost? I told her I didn't know until I looked at it. So I see that it is leaking around the base of the toilet, I go to pull the toilet, and find out someone had tap-conned the flange and the toilet to the concrete floor.The heads rounded off so they had to be carefully cut with a hacksaw blade. Upon removing the toilet, I see that the flange is broken,so the existing flange needs to be cut out ,and a new one installed.Which I showed her. The bathroom had recently been remodeled "obviously" by a handyman. Even though I gave her a break on the labor, she still complained about the cost.Believing that we would not hear from this person again, they called back about some leaks ,and a loose sink faucet.and again as soon as I walked in the door , The first question was how much will this cost?my response was the same. Upon taking the handles apart ,to see what the problem was, I discover a special clip that secures the valve body to the sink was missing, obviously handyman work.so after looking through our miscellaneous parts to no avail , and calling all the local suppliers, to find out that you cannot just buy that one part separately. So while we were at the supply house, I picked up new valve bodies took them back to her house, and showed her what the problem was, and ask her what she wanted us to do.I gave her the price ,and she told us to replace them. We then repaired some other faucets ,identified a deck tub faucet, that had been discontinued approximately 15 years ago, located a place in California that happened to have the parts ,found the outside access panel to be able to locate the isolation valve ,shut it off to stop the continuing dripping.and again after giving her a discount on labor she complained about the bill. I talk to her husband on the phone and explained what we were doing ,and he seemed understanding, and a nice guy.so this doctor's wife who lives in a gated community ,wants problems created by her unskilled remodelers repaired for nothing. I have wondered what her husband's response would be if a patient walked in ,and ask the price before examination ,finds out another surgery is required to repair the first botched surgery ,and it will cost three times more. In my 40 years of business ,this lady probably gets first place in the "you get what you pay for" category.

Bootz Plumbing Inc
I've now had Bootz Pluming come out to my residence twice in the past couple of years. Once for a hot water tank install and more recently to replace a cartridge in my guest shower faucet. They were always prompt in answering the phones and told me the price upfront (which I appreciated). They even mentioned upfront to contact Moen directly for a free replacement cartridge of which I was not aware of as a consumer (saved me $45 for the cartridge). The plumber was a little late in arriving at my place but they kept me fully updated via phone to let me know that he was running late from a previous appointment. Overall, I was very impressed with their plumbing abilities and customer service.

Outstanding Customer Service! I got a reminder call 24 hours before my time frame. My time frame was 3 hours and then I was called 30 mins before he was set to arrive. When the technician arrived, they were well dressed and well mannered. Even took their shoes off before they came into the house. The best part is they did not try to upsell me on any ridiculous parts they fixed my toilet and the pricing was fair and itemized. I would definitely use them again! *****

Wolf Plumbing
If you're shopping for a Sarasota backflow prevention inspection, Wolf appears to be the go to guy. A five minute phone call, a $40 fee on my credit card (compared to $125 from one of his competitors!). I'm pretty sure Wolf is the first guy I'll call the next time I need plumbing work.

I had a leak in my kitchen faucet and broke a part while replacing it. I could not find it anywhere. Someone suggested Phillips. They not only had the part but gave me valuable tips on replacing it. Kudos to Phillips (now MY pluming store. Thanks to the employees !

We had our home hooked up to the sity sewer service and were very happy with the price and the job being completed on time and they left our yard neat and clean when they were done. Will use them again if we need a plumber. The Berkle's

Tips & Advices
  • 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?
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.
