"A New Year...my resolutions were off to a great
start, then the toilet overflowed".
After our toilet overflowed, I spent New Year's Eve
surfing the net finding handyman sites. Then we spent New Year's Day
plunging, auguring, and resetting our toilet. I thought it was better than
paying for a plumber to come in, and it gave my son and I a big boost of
confidence when the job was complete.
However...a month and a half later we began having
trouble with our washing machine backing up into our bathtub...then
discovered we had mega roots on our sewer line. After several quotes we
found the most economical, yet reputable plumber to install an outside
clean-out and remove all the roots from the lines. They offered a 10
warrantee on their workmanship and a lifetime warrantee on the pipes...and
their crew was extremely professional and courteous...everything I look
for in a contractor!

the sewer job.
