Our Reviews Speak for Themselves

Jen J.

We used Yelp projects and got a couple responses within minutes. It was important to us to have a verified license plumber come assess our situation and fix it, so that’s how we chose this company. Technician was responsive and timely and helped work with our schedule despite the 4-hour arrival window. Great repair and would choose them again.

The Drain guys are the best. I’m a first time homebuyer and my water heater was leaking. I was able to call Jay and get someone in the next day. Rich was very helpful and efficient when diagnosing the issue and installing the water heater. He was able to do it the same day and he walked me through the entire process. He made sure he cleaned up any mess from his work and even tightened my faucet. He answered every question I had as well, which was helpful for me. I found the company on Yelp and have had nothing but a great experience. They are prompt, reasonably priced, professional, and makes sure the job is complete before. I highly recommend them for any plumbing needs, you will not be disappointed.

We had a leak in a Saturday afternoon.
We requested a quote from 5 people.
Jay responded right away.
Rich did a great job and continued to provide us guidance which helped us navigate related repairs with insurance.

Richard from the Drain Guys arrived shortly after I reached out via Yelp. He helped us fix several issues around the house including replacing two toilets and fixing a leaking pipe in our crawl space. The initial consult lasted less than an hour and he was back the next morning with all the supplies and the entire project completed within just a few hours! He was ready to answer any questions we had and the products he installed are of great quality and high efficiency! Buh-bye cotton candy toilets!!

When we bought our house, the old owners had a stopper on the tank, allowing less water to fill, since they never used the guest bathroom, but since we use it frequently the toilet was never getting the quality flush it needed- desperate for deeper waters. Offried could have easily called us dumb, deep sighed at driving all the way out there, and left in a huff, but my husband said he kindly walked him through the different settings on our toilet, helped re-set all the bowls, gave advice about ‘stages of water’ in toilet life, and also spent time looking at the pipes, giving suggestions on the best cleaning agents based on the ‘years’ of our piping. […] I’ve already seen a few “looking for” on facebooks, where I’ve sent photos of the business card. Must use!

Our tubs in both of our bathrooms were draining slowly. Rich from The Drain Guys arrived promptly at the beginning of the time window, and was able to fix the issues with both tubs within about half an hour. Very reliable service and a pleasure to work with. Definitely would recommend him.
