Work Description: Tankless Water Heater - Install
East Providence RI
Work Description: boiler maintenanceComments: I don't think I have never written an online review before, but our experience with this company was so upsetting that I am moved to warn others. We wish it were incompetence but we have to suspect deceitfulness: The Plumber Company was called to fix a steam leak and change a sight glass kit on our newish boiler, which was otherwise happily heating our house — and proceeded to present us with mounting bills, ultimately totaling in the $5,000 range — finally leaving our furnace disassembled, and cold, in February, as we tried to understand their changing diagnosis of the “problem.”
Their tactics felt coercive and amazingly shady: to turn our boiler off (by sabotage of the pressuretrol) and chill us (and our small child) into giving in and paying their exorbitant fees for really dubious diagnoses.
We finally — after paying the Plumber Company $1200 for what we learned was that few-hundred-dollar sight glass job; fool us once — found an alternative plumber, who swiftly remedied the (overblown, if not invented/created...) “problem” for a few hundred $.
This experienced alternative plumber had to agree: It looked an awful lot like the Plumber Company had destroyed our pressuretrol, rather than replace the 25-dollar pig tail that was clogged and preventing the pressuretrol from functioning right.
(I should have suspected further scams, in retrospect. In the question of the initial steam leak, they at first said they’d have to bring in a threader to replace ten feet of pipe, when in fact that ten feet led to nothing relevant — to a defunct non-essential industrial heater mounted on the ceiling in a basement corner. When I pointed out the meaningless of that section of the system, they backtracked about new pipe and the need for a threader, which if I hadn't caught would have been a 2000-dollar “mistake”.)
The most upsetting day was the last, when they said if we didn’t want to pay $2300 dollars, on top of $1200 we’d paid for no good results, we could “turn the thermostat back on.” The thermostat was not off. We never heard from them again, after periodic calls from us to the company all day.
Thank goodness for honest and knowledgeable plumbers/furnace technicians in winter, responsive and decent and ready to help new homeowners with young kids—- the perfect opposite of what we met at The Plumber Company. I recommend The Plumber Company to no one.

Work Description: Oil Furnace - RepairComments: After getting a quote. The repair was scheduled the next day, but they called the next day telling us they didn't have the parts, even though the repair man had told us that they had the parts in stock (that's why I agreed to the repair job). I called 3 more times, each time they said the parts would there at the end of the day and they would call me back to comfirm, which they never did. After 2 weeks my wife called and was told by the repair man that the parts still hadn't arrived, than she cancelled the work. Right after that call, his office called to say the parts were there, and the repairman was on his way to do the work. My wife than said we had no confiance in them. We than called the creditcard company to find what charges they had made. The credit card called them, but they shouted at the creditcard rep. and hang up on them. The card called them again and they hung up on them again. So the creditcard company we must dispute the charges when our bill arrives. If these are the people that Networx have in their network, I don't think I could ever use your service again.

Work Description: Water coming out washing machine drainComments: I cannot say enough good things about Brandon who did the plumbing work at my house. I called the same day, and they came out 2 hours later. He was very professional, helpful, explained what he was doing, gave me options. He performed great work, he did not want to leave the job unfinished, even though it was almost time for him to go home. I feel he went above and beyond to solve and repair the problem. I would definitely use this company again.

Work Description: Sewer Main - RepareComments: They answered my call immediately, came out to view the problem that same night, set up for the job the next day and completed the job the day after. I am very pleased with their work.
Work Description: Bathroom sink water was not draining out.Comments: He worked for about 10 minutes. Pumped some air. Charged $225 and the problem is back in 3 hours! He said the faucet may have to be changed. $225 is excessive to pump some air and the problem is not fixed. I have to spend another $350 on this sink now.
Work Description: replace old toilet with new toilet that I had here for him. Replace on/off water valve for toilet Remove old toilet from premises.Comments: replaced toilet and valve but forgot to take old toilet He had to come back to fix valve it was dripping. Came back tightened valve but it is still dripping. he said it could be condensation but I know what condensation is like. Also said I may have to replace pipes because they are iffy. Pipes are old but have never leaked before. The drip is coming from the bottom of the new valve not pipes. Just don't think he used plumbers tape or sealant on the new valve. Will wait a few more days to see how much it is leaking and will call again to see what can be done.

Work Description: Install bathroom sink.Comments: John the master plumber did a wonderful job! He was also very courteous and arrived exactly when he said he would. Ed, who took our initial call and scheduled the appointment was professional and very courteous-- great job by all!
Work Description: Replace water heaterComments: The repairman was quite personable. He knew what had to be done and replaced it well. I DO, however, have some things to bring up that need attention. The repairman needed to take down a double door in order to fit into the work space. When he "returned" the door, it wasn't put in properly and, subsequently, fell on me when I tried to open it. I have a bad back and am unable to return the door by myself. The bottom of the door had a lining which helped the door open/close more easily. That lining was damaged, maybe irreplaceable, There is grease/dirt on the areas of the door where he handled it. There was a small scraping of paint on the door as well.
He neglected to return the drainage hose on the back of the washing machine, evidenced by a cascading of water all over the floor when I tried to wash laundry. He used a towel and left it on the floor. I had no problem with that, but it left a mystery as to what on the floor needed drying. Speaking of mysteries, 4 wall anchors wound up in my garbage disposal. I'm still not sure how they got there.
I did call your business after the washing machine started expelling water. I got some kind of "answering service" and told it would be relayed to the workman the next morning. As it turned out, the repairman called me a little later that evening. I explained(some of) what happened, and he instructed me what to do. i.e. return the hose. I told him about the problem with the door coming off its tracking, He said he would see if he could come back to return the door properly. That was last I talked with him.
I did mean to contact you earlier about all this stuff, but, right now, my plate is pretty full and I've had to prioritize.
I don't want anything "bad" to happen to the repairman. He wasn't ill-tempered or unpleasant. (As a matter of fact, I liked the guy!) He just needs to be more careful while working and to clean up better when he's done.
Thanks for reading all this. I still need to call you to see about getting the door into place properly.
Thanks for your time and attention to all this.

Work Description: Replace section of cast iron drain with PVC.Comments: All the plumbing work was great. I would have preferred if the contractor had taken a bit more care in cutting through the wall to get to the drain pipe - using a Sawzall with a standard up-cut blade to saw through lath created a good amount of peripheral damage.
