I have alternative Plumbing coming out next wensday to send a camera down the sewer. then the real fun will begin.
Just a different take on Alternative Plumbing. I've had some bad experiences including telling me my water heater was leaking when it was condensation from the furnace (AFTER the new water heater was installed), and then because I'm a softie and wanted to give them another chance, they screwed up shower repair and left a giant hole in my plaster wall. But others have had better experience. Good luck upso.
I would 100% recommend t&j plumbing. I have used them on several jobs and I have never been disappointed with them. Their prices are excellent and their boss (Jamie) is always on site at the major jobs. 419.380.8541
Speaking of cameras, one of the workers at t&j told me I needed a new sewer line. Their boss came out, looked at it, and said we could get away with snaking the line. That to me was integrity.
Alternative Plumbing Plus just finished replacing a section of my sewer and installing a cleanout. I am 100 percent happy with their work. on time no hidden extras.
Foodie recently had a similar issue, involving underground plumbing. He had a good result. Maybe he will chime in, or that thread can be found.
I can remember who the contractor was, but may have been Alternative.
It was Alternative. They replaced my water service line from the city tap to the inside of my basement. They are one of the few in the area that utilize directional boring so the only excavating was to access the city tap.
Not only did they do a great job but they did it for less than half of what several others wanted.
Just had them back out a couple of weeks ago to replace the shutoff valve that supplies the dishwasher. Didn't know it was bad until I tore out my old d/w getting ready for the new one to be installed the next morning - a Saturday. I was in a pinch timewise but they squeezed me in on a Friday afternoon.
Love these people.
Maybe that's why they can't fix my sewer line. Too busy with other TT'r claims. They came out 3 weeks ago and scoped it with the video camera and marked the grass where the break was and that was the last I have heard from them. I have been playing phone tag between them and the insurance company. Every time it rains, the hole in my yard just keeps getting bigger!
Have you verified with your insurance carrier that there is coverage? That is not something that would normally be covered.
That could be the holdup.
Sorry! I meant Affordable Plumbing. My mistake. Maybe I should call Alternative. The insurance I have is offered through Columbia Gas. Company is called Extra Service Protection.
Ok - the coverage offered through Columbia - that makes more sense. We have that also - since our home is going on 60 years old.
