David responded to our call within minutes. We had a plumbing emergency and he came to us as soon as he finished a job he was on, which was about a few hours. David and his apprentice Cameron were respectful and pleasant to do business with. David explained everything to us and gave us a look at the camera as it snaked through our pipes. We will definitely call this company if need service again.read more
I initially called Charlie's Rooter Service (CRS) due to a sewer line backup. Lulu answered and was very nice. She set up the appointment and Luis arrived on time and was also very friendly. He pulled out the largest root structure (out of my pipe) either of us had ever seen. We had a good laugh. He called it the catch of the day and had me take a picture of him with it.
Sometimes a faucet leak can be stopped by replacing the rubber washer at the end of a faucet stem or cartridge.  This is a more common repair on older fixtures when things were built to last and designed to be able to be maintained.  Other times the whole stem or cartridge needs replacement or the bibb seat deeper back into the fixture needs replacement.  That leads to matching up the right components and often times making a trip to the hardware store or plumbing supply house necessary due to the many varieties, makes and models of faucets.  My advice is to make sure your Plumber has faucet repair kit on their truck before having them come out to assess the issue.

Plumbing originated during ancient civilizations such as the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, and Chinese cities as they developed public baths and needed to provide potable water and wastewater removal, for larger numbers of people.[6] Standardized earthen plumbing pipes with broad flanges making use of asphalt for preventing leakages appeared in the urban settlements of the Indus Valley Civilization by 2700 BC.[7] The Romans used lead pipe inscriptions to prevent water theft. The word "plumber" dates from the Roman Empire.[8] The Latin for lead is plumbum. Roman roofs used lead in conduits and drain pipes[9] and some were also covered with lead. Lead was also used for piping and for making baths.[10]

I have had a great experience all around with this company.  A polite, knowledgeable lady answered my call, then told me she could have someone out between 10:00 AM and 12:00 noon.  Ramon arrived at 10:00 sharp.  Perfect!  Ramon is a fine man -- personable, polite, knowledgeable, and a hard worker.  He unstopped my drain in no time flat.  No drama.  No surprises.  Just good, old-fashioned quality service.

Awesome experience with Charlie's Rooter Service! Our outside area drains were overflowing when it rained and about to flood toward the house.  I called Charlie's and they had Luis come over within an hour.  Luis was super friendly and ready to help when he arrived.  He figured out the problem and snaked the street drain and pulled out a huge clump of roots that were clogging it up!  But there was still some backup flooding on the side that he was able to isolate to get rid of the mud and debris that were clogging that up.  Before leaving, Luis even gave suggestions on how to flush it out periodically to keep things flowing smoothly.  Luis is the best and I would definitely use him for future plumbing problems, highly recommended!

This was our second time using Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. Once again, the plumber arrived on time, was personable and respectful, and did a good job assessing and correcting the problem in each instance. I would definitely recommend Benjamin Franklin for all of your plumbing needs. I want to give a particular shout out to the plumber today, David Brown. He is a huge asset to the company, again, for his knowledge and the respectful way he conducts himself.

We are members of St. Gertrude's Parish and we experienced a sewer back up in our basement. I saw BEST Plumbing listed in the bulletin and I decided to give you a try. The appointment was made between 2:00pm and 4:00pm. I received a call from our plumber at approximately 1:30pm that he was in route to our house. BEST Plumbing cleared roots out of our sewer line and operated a camera in the sewer line. They discovered a riser installed improperly, which was broken at the lateral connection. BEST Plumbing made proper repairs, placed sand and backfilled the area. Our plumber was extremely courteous, helpful, and very professional throughout the entire process. We will be BEST Plumbing's biggest fans and appreciate the service. St. Gertrude's Parish
With all the freezing weather our city has had, my dad had a problem with his water pipes and I told him to call BL plumbing service. From the first phone call he made, the company gave him the most remarkable customer service. The dispatcher promptly made an appointment for him and within a couple of hours 2 workers were at his home working on the problem and fixing his pipes! The workers were very kind, helpful and extremely courteous to my dad. Not only was the work done quickly, but also, the cost of the repair was more than fair. I am so grateful for the service that was given to my dad and I will highly recommend this company to anyone needing plumbing work.
^ "II. The Plumbers". The Atlantic. Retrieved 17 September 2013. In the early evening of June 17, 1971, Henry Kissinger held forth in the Oval Office, telling his President, and John Ehrlichman and Bob Haldeman, all about Daniel Ellsberg. Kissinger's comments were recorded, of course, on the hidden White House taping system, and four years later, a portion of that tape was listened to by the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, which was then investigating the internal White House police unit known as the Plumbers.

plumbers must be asked directly what they charge hourly and if that is in addition to a service charge. The two are separate and I think they have gotten away with outrageous charges because of the potential of water damaging homeowner structures.   I had a plumber (not Home advisor) come and replace a part in my kitchen sink that was under warranty---the spray nozzle had been leaking...He charged me $85.00 for 15 minutes of work and I will never use Mr King again. 

Hello, long story. Toilet line stopped up two years ago. A company used high pressure water to clean line. Didnt work. Came back a second time with a plummer. Spouse was told that the line had collapsed, filled with rocks or tiles. Plummer then disconnected that line put in a second line, punched a hole in my tank, fed the new line in that hole. Now two years later, each heavy rain brings a strong sewer smell into the house. Found out later that there were no rocks or tiles in original line, only a large calcium build up over 25 years that had clogged the original line. I do not know if when the new line was put in, the old line was closed properly or if either line was or should be vented? I would like the original line reconnected and the newer line just removed. I plan then to repair the hole in septic tank where the new line entered with tar or concete. I need someone to fix my smelly home.

I had a leaky water heater, and Elek came to fix it within an hour of calling. I was offered multiple options, and the service technician helped me choose the best option. The technician worked quickly and cleanly. He left no evidence that he was in my home, other than a professionally installed, new water heater. I recommend Elek without any reservations.read more

If nothing inside the home was altered you should not be getting a smell. Personally I'm confused as to why the repair person would have left the original line there and ran another one through a new hole. I would have pulled the old line up, ran the new line (in PVC) and used the same hole in the septic tank instead of creating a new one. Did he seal up the hole in the tank from the old line?

Using corrosive chemicals to dissolve a clog is like throwing a grenade down a gopher hole. Instead, Wroblewski recommends flushing your drains weekly with a half cup of baking soda and one cup of vinegar. Let it fizz in the drain for ten minutes, then pour in four cups of boiling water. Find out about the plumbing nightmares that will make you cringe.
Water leak detection devices, eco-friendly shower heads, and water-recycling pipes are only some of the most advanced plumbing devices that you can connect to your water supply network. Imagine having a device that will detect leaks before it gets worse; a shower head that releases fewer amount or water yet a higher amount of pressure so that you can still have a great bathing experience; and a system of pipes that recycles safe-to-reuse grey water and connects it to your garden irrigation pipes. These will all raise your water supply system a notch higher!

Find a good online DIY source that you trust. I recommend This Old House for detailed and easy-to-understand instructions on common plumbing repairs you can do yourself. Make sure you know where to locate the main water supply and the supply to each plumbing application, which is typically located under a sink or behind the toilet. Lastly, familiarize yourself with local codes and regulations. Some municipalities require that you hire a certified plumber for certain plumbing jobs.


Research says that lack of plumbing inspection, frequent leakages, long-term standing flooding water, moisture and humid temperatures make your home very favorable for bacterial and microbial growth. You must know that mold, the biggest plumbing problem in Singapore due to our humid climate, grows rapidly in homes having poor plumbing system with high degree of dampness and humidity. Always keep your building’s plumbing optimal so as to stop these health hazards from striking your homes.

I highly recommend Elek Plumbing.read more
