Review 7/31/2011
My tenant had a clogged kitchen sink. He called for the $59.00 special. When they arrived they said that price is only if you have a accessible clean-out. The tenant didn't know.... so they went ahead and did the work from under the kitchen sink and charged him $180.00 to clear the drain."I guess they never looked outside where one does exist." Later tenant called back stating there is water all over the kitchen floor and also coming out outside the house. The plumber came back and said that he would have to take the toilet off and run a camera thru the drain to see the problem. That's when I get a call from the plumber stating that we have a emergency situation here and that 30 to 40 feet of drain pipe inside the cement slab under the bathroom and kitchen floors were rusted out and needed to be replaced and would cost $9500. I met with the plumber to see the damage via camera view and would show me only if I hired him. He did show water on the floor by turning on the bathroom & kitchen sinks. I had another plumbing company come out finding the problem, a pipe leaking in the wall just behind the kitchen sink and said it wouldn't cost no more than $250. I called Tony the manager at Newton Plumbing and I asked him for all the troubles Newton Plumbing has caused me maybe they could do it at 1/2 price? He sent a guy out and he quoted $750 to repair a rusted 2"x 14" long pipe. {I had already cleared away all Stucco for job!} I called Tony and he said he could go down to $500 and that kind of job is usually $1000 ??? I ended up using another plumbing company at $250. BEWARE !! OF THIS COMPANY !!!
