Rooter Plus

Posted on: 10/28/2012

Licensed Criminals, plain and simple

It's a wonder this company is still in business with all the bad reviews it's gotten. I called Rooter Plus to give me a free estimate at my rental property for a broken sewer pipe leading into the county's sewer pipe. The pipe was located over a creek at the back of my property. Chris came out, looked at it and said that they would probably have to dig up my backyard from the creek to the house, which is the better part of an acre, replace the whole sewer line and that it was going to be a couple of thousand and that I needed to get it fixed quick or the county would fine me heavily. He said he would come out the next day with his boss and call me with a true estimate of the job. My tenant calls me the next afternoon and tells me the county is at my property along with Chris, the plumber. Long story short, Chris blew the whistle on me to the county to try and intimidate me to give Rooter Plus the job immediately. He even encouraged the county workers to fine me while they were on the property. The county techs told me all this and they said the pipe was not as bad as Chris was making it to be and they refused to fine me. The estimate given by Rooter Plus? $5,800. I almost told him to shove that! I got another plumber that did the job for $1,200 without all the damage to my property. I am a teacher and I know plenty of people and parents in the metro area and I will spread the word about the shady practices of this company. DO NOT HIRE THESE PEOPLE FOR ANYTHING
