Reliable Plumbing & Sewer Service
For the first time it was nice to know you can call someone and not have to worry about them taking advantage just to make a little money. I would recommend Reliable to anyone who asks in the future.

Everything we have had done has had to be replaced or corrected at least once and sometimes multiple times. I called regarding a sump pump and they replaced it, but the check valve began leaking and spraying water. They replaced the valve, but the same thing happened within a year. Then I was told it was a batch of bad valves and they replaced the last one for free which fixed it. The other extractor pump rocked the whole house every time it shut down. The plumber changed the check valve and attached all kinds of hangers to the framing. After a short time it continued and I called them back and they made some adjustments that helped but did not eliminate the problem. Recently I've had to spend more time at home due to a knee replacement and noticed the problem get worse. I called them back again and they said it was likely the same issue with a batch of bad check valves. They replaced it and then handed us a bill for $120. We asked why and the plumber said the work was done to long ago and we should have called earlier. Seems that if the problem was caused by a batch of bad parts then they should have replaced it for free. Takes too many trips to do simple repairs and you end up paying more in the end because you have to pay for their mistakes. Won't be going back.

Not impressed with estimate whatsoever. Was quoted a ridiculous price on a piece of equipment that I know for a fact is 4 times less the amount given to me! Plumber barely evaluated the job. Will NOT be hiring this company.

Refreshing approach to the job. This guy solves the problem. I've had several plumbers attempt....and fail (yet still charged!!!) Such a pleasure to work with. This is the only plumber you need.
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.
