Had a leaking, overflowing toliet...on a Sunday night, of course. I called Akins PLumbing and they immediately answered the phone. They came out within the hour and solved all out problems! Thanks James for you hard work and he even tightened up the valve our our sink that drips CONSTANTLY! Will definitely use again in the future. I also appreciate the owner calling us the next day to make sure we were satified with the work. A nice touch!

I am so pleased with the service I received from Akins Plumbing. Jeff explained cost and procedure completely before hand and answered all of my questions. He and Allan showed up early, worked extremely hard and went above and beyond for me. I will use them for all my needs in the future and recommend them highly to friends and strangers alike!

I first called Ricky in 1990 to fix a stopped-up septic tank. They were out in about 90 minutes. They drained the septic tank and all was fine. Since then our family has called Ricky MANY times for minor to major repairs. In not one instance were we dissatisfied with the work or the cost. We have recommended Akins Plumbing to at least 25 people over the years. Not one of those referrals were dissatisfied. I give this company the highest rating possible. They do a good job at an always fair price. Dr. Jack Arlington

I had a water line that busted and needed to be replaced. I called Akins out and James had a new waterline in that same day for much less than the other quotes I received. I would recommend these guys to anyone. Great job!

I had various plumbing issues around the house and decided to finally call a plumber. They came right out and fixed all of my issues and pumped my septic tank for almost half of what others quoted me! They showed up on time and I would definitely use them! I even got a great coupon off their website.

Called akins plumbing out just for a general estimate to begin with and had consulted with three other company's. Akins seemed to be the best at explaining the problem and helping me understand what had to be done in the hotel parking lott thanks Ricky and James for all the help and understanding .......:-)

We have not done any work for this person to my knoledge
When I first moved into my house 5 years ago, I was having trouble with 3 toilets. I assumed it was more than a "snaking" issue which I could have done myself. They snaked the three toilets and charged me $450. It took them less than half hour for the job. I wrote a negative review before but Mr. Akins posted that I was just bitter about being divorced (which actually was my choice). Nice way to treat a single mom trying to make it on her own! And very unprofessional behavior.

Mam, Im very sorry for your personal problems obviously it is still affecting you you wrote the same review back in 2008 I think its time to let things go, I tried to console you back then.And I said I would give you A discount because you were not satisfied. That still holds true today go online print the coupon send it to me and I will gladly give you a discount.Ricky
The service was fantastic, they were polite and very prompt. I would highly recommend the plumbing and the septic service. We were so impressed with them, that when my son bought his house we called Akins for his septic tank pumping. You will get a very fair price on all of the services they provide. These are awesome. Thanks, Lisa Gower Winder GA

I called Akins Plumbing to fix a slow toilet. Immediately I was impressed that they weren't going to charge me a "service call" fee to simply come out and tell me what was wrong. I set up my appointment for the next day. I have been completely impressed with all of my interactions with all of the employees in this company, and have James in my cell phone for any future emergencies. Thanks so much for all of your help!

Called at 9am and they were at my house within the hour. Gave me an estimate, but since they were they first, I wanted two other quotes. They blew the other guys out of the water. Called them up at 2 in the afternoon letting them know they got the job and they were back at my house again within a hour to fix the water line. Work was done very well and LOVE the warranty. No one else even came close. Special thanks to Derek! Wonderful job! GREAT customer service.

Needed to have the main fixed. Said that they can do it with no problem and gave us a quote. Not a bad price. When it came time to install, I noticed that the "call before you dig" folks did not mark the power to the house. And as I a unknowning homeowner noticed that, surely a trained plumber would notice and call to verify where the power was. But, NOOO, they didn't. Not only that but they showed up with a large backhoe. They didn't every question where the power went from the big box at the corner of the yard.. Not 5 feet from where they were digging by the way, and went to town tearing up the yard. They promplty cut thru the main power to the house causing several thousand dollars in damage to blown equipment, tv, stove and fridge. We fought for weeks to get warranty money from the STS, who marked the lines. Akins absolved themselves of any guilt saying that STS should have marked the line. And that they didn't notice that it wasn't marked to the house. Then they noticed the sprinker system, uh.. we mentioned we have one, and changed the quote by almost 1k..upwards. As we had free flowing water, we felt they would take care of it and do all they could to avoid the system.. nope. cut right thru it in 2 places. said that WE would have to pay to get it fixed or he could "try" to fix it. He did... then promptly rolled over again with the back hoe in 2 different places. It has been over a year and the grass STILL has not grown back.
