    Started well, ended bad

    We were very satisfied with the initial visit from Absolute. The gentleman took the time to review our list of repairs and even talked us out of replacing our water heater (he could have convinced us to do an additional $1000 worth of work). When he showed up to do the work, however, he was a couple of hours late. One task was replacement of rusting gas line. He opted not to replace a portion, saying it wasn't leaking yet - no need. We would prefer to have had all new, as that was implied in the estimate. As to the shower, we've been puzzled. The task was to replace the washers. After he left...no water in shower? We discovered a couple of parts on the shower floor. We called and he returned the next day. Took about 5 minutes. Replaced the shower head with a cheap plastic one. When we asked, he said the found parts weren't necessary. Took the parts with him. We could have used an explanation. We also would have probably bought a better shower head if the original one (10 years old) was broken - as he said after we chased out to his truck to ask what he fixed. Didn't have the chance. Don't know what those two brass parts were that were on the floor... You should watch closely if you use him and get him to answer quesitons.

    Absolute could not come out until the next day. Our problem was diagnosed as a clogged aerator -a washer crumbled and clogged the screens. The only aerator replacement the very young plumber had was the wrong type and he said he didn't have a replacement washer. "Go to home depot" he advised. The bill was $97. "Service call," he said. I objected. He called his supervisor. The supervisor asked if the problem was solved. I said "NO." The supervisor then talked to his plumber, who took parts out of the aerator he did have, and fixed the problem. The whole $97 peration took 15 minutes, arrival to departure. The plumber needed to borrow a pen.

    I had a tub spout and bathroom sink pop up assembly replaced by Jose. What a great job. The tub spout had to be custom fit and took longer than expected. Jose was very professional and patient with all my questions. I was charged for an hour but the job took 2 hours and I received the Yelp discount as well. I finally found an excellent plumber. Thank you Jose. Would highly recommend Absolute Plumbing.

    Mike is GREAT!!!! My Furnace was making noises and even though he was booked that day he came to my house at 8:30 pm and got it fix! I can finally have a good night sleep. Best part about him, he seemed honest, straight, and did try to over charge me (a 1st time homeowner that has NO clue when things break) Not will I use him again but I will recommend him. Mike continue doing business the way you do! Because you do a GREAT job! =o)

    Persistent and Tenacious Problems Solver

    We had a particularly difficult drainage problem, compounded by the age of our home and an extensive remodel done before we purchased it three years ago. It looked like bad news and big bucks. Jose moved from one approach to another, seemingly enormous move, but one that worked like a charm. He is a creative thinker, persistent and intent on getting the problem figured out. He works with amazing speed, but with care. Further, he keeps costs down--conscientiously. Would recommend to anyone.

    We recently purchased a new washer machine. Sears could not install it due to corrosion on the pipes and a rusted drain. Absolute plumbing came out within an hour of my phone call and fixed what was needed for a great price. Sears came back and installed the washer. Finally, I can do my laundry at home again.

    Absolute repaired a pinhole leak above the laundry room ceiling in record time. Their employees were very professional, arrived on time, and completed repairs within the hour. They charged less than was expected for the repair. Will deal exclusively with Absolute Plumbing from now on. Thanks guys!

    Absolute followed thru on a very difficult job involving replacing a gas line to my outdoor bbq. They delivered the job as quoted with good quality. The only reason I did not give them 5 stars on quality is due to the concrete patch covering an underground gas line. I'm sure they have upgraded this installation technique as I was one of their first customers. Jose delivers on what he says he will do.

    Absolute Plumbing delivers what they promised and a little more. They replaced my garbage disposal and fix a leaky dishwasher all in under 40 min. The total cost was less than expected. Thank you for such a excellent service. I would definitely use your company again for any plumbing needs.

    Fixed shower leaks and installed a bathtub

    I had been told by other plumbers that a tub would not fit into the small space my shower was, but when it leaked, I called Absolute and they were there the same day fixed everything the next day and installed a gorgeous, deep, excellent quality tub. They were COMPLETELY professional, courteous and gave me a GREAT DEAL. I HIGHLY recommend them for plumbing repairs or remodels!!
