tub faucet cartridge fixed

Wondy was a pleasure to work with: punctual, friendly, knowledgable and fixed the problems we were having. A damaged cartridge in the tub faucet was resulting in an ongoing leak and blocking of hot water.

One small piece of feedback for improvement purposes: the plumber unstuck the mat in the tub while doing the work. He invited me to check the repaired faucet afterwards, and upon entering the tub I slipped a bit since the mat was no longer secured. The mat is a safety feature so if it is unstuck by the plumber, the resident should be notified (or the mat entirely removed so it is obvious).

The cost of this service, determined by the company not the plumber, was outrageous for such a small part and small amount of labour.

replaced duralock

leak below basin-broken duralock
MrRooter supplied and Installed new duralock connection under basin
Installed new two stainless steel braided supply line, both hotand cold.
Tested and checked for leaks.
The stainless steel braided supply lines were working and did not need to be replaced
The Plumber could not tell me the cost of the duralock nor could they tell me cost per hour of labour. Service manager Fred had same response
The Plumber(Peter) was the worst service person I have ever had in my home

Avoid this company complete rip off

I felt completely taken for a ride

Hello Rashid,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. Our plumber provided you with a quote to show how much this specific job would cost. The braided supply lines were replaced as a plumbing best practice that our licensed plumber completed, and at a competitive price for the work done.

Thank you for choosing Mr. Rooter Plumbing.

Very Expensive

It was Sunday and my toilet water pump was dripping and would take an hour to fill up the tank. I called and they said that someone could come between 12:00-3:00. After 2:00 they called said that someone was on their way and would be there in an hour, then 15 minutes later they called again saying the supplier was closed and they couldn't get the part so they would come the next day between 10:00-12:00. Didn't they know this when I initally called and explained my problem? It would have been nice to have been told sooner so I wasn't waiting a whole afternoon. On the Monday I get a call at 11:30 saying they would be there within an hour. The problem was with the pump and flapper, he said it would be over $300 to replace or he could replace the whole toilet for $1,100 (if they provided the toilet) and $500 (if I bought the toilet). I also asked about my faucet handle which was dripping at times. He said to fix it would be over $300 or he had a Moyen in the truck that he could use to replace it for $500. I declined the faucet fix. But out of desparation and not wanting to waste another day of waiting to see if I could get someone else and fear that the toilet may completely break-down and be unuseable I agreed to have the toilet fixed. To replace the pump and flapper it was $388 after taxes. Considering that Home Depot sells the part they replaced for a max of $40 I thought $388 for not even 30 minutes of his time was pretty mercenary. The plumber was polite and pleasant, I don't know if the gouging is an individual plumber decision or company policy but either way I can't recommend Mr. Rooter.

Clogged toilet

Bruce from Mr. Rooter came over and fixed our clogged toilet. He was very friendly, knowledgeable, added more water to our tank and finished the toilet in a matter of minutes. We are so happy to have the toilet working again!

Horrible service and crazy expensive

Charged me 100$ for a visit. I had a slip joint nut that needed to be replaced and they quoted me 600$! Do not fall for this trap fo a service

Mistake fixed

We found a leak in a 1/2" hot water copper pipe a foot away from the hot water tank on Good Friday eve. Unfortunately, our go-to plumber was not available, so we called Mr. Rooter. It was obviously not our day, as the plumber who responded to the call mistakenly decided that the work required several hours of preparations, applied trip charges ($100) and left. The work was completed in 20 minutes the next day by our go-to plumber.

After I posted a review on HomeStars, the next morning I received a call from Mr. Rooter's director of operations, who apologized, assured me that this case does not represent their values and practices, and immediately provided a refund.

It is unfortunate that things went wrong in our case, but I have to admit that Mr. Rooter is responsive and values their customers.

stupid drips

Called Mr Rooter who had someone over in just over an hour. Samuel took a look and didn't see anything but did not give up. He found the leak and pointed out another problem we have, Samuel took the time to explain in detail abybout our old pipes (we knew he wasn't selling us a story because wee had heard last time about the pipes). We agreed with Samuel and had the main drain pipe under the sink replaced. I am happy with the work and the price. would highly recommend Samuel if you are looking for a hard working honest guy.

Excellent customer service by Bruce

Bruce was great. He updated me on his drive in, updated me on the cost, explained what was happening during his time there. Would explain what was on going and what he did to complete the job and finish the job.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.
