“They were real friendly, direct, and fixed the problem that was occurring that day. Apparently, the sewage and the main pipe outside were backed up. The sewage backed up to my drains. They put a machine in there with a camera to push out what was in there, clogging it up. They were excellent. They were good.”

“They did a good job. They put in two new toilets. I'd give them an A+.”

“I liked Craig, the guy who does the work. He's actually done a couple of things for me now and I'll call his card again the next time. They did plumbing work. They've done multiple things. They've done a drain clog issue, replaced a hot water heater, and cleared the drain. They've done a couple of things, actually. I'd give them an A+ across the board.”

“They were thorough. I appreciated the plumber that came. He did a good job, got it done, and he was on his way. We had no negative repercussion, no negative feeling, and no problem afterward. Everything was cool. Everything was good. They were A+. Robert's a good man.”

“I liked the friendliness of the tech. He took time to explain everything. He answered all of my questions. I liked that a lot. He changed out a part to ensure that the toilet flushed. My toilet wouldn't flush. I'd give them an A+ for the whole experience.”

“They did work about three months ago. They were friendly, professional, and did the job right. They were in and out of here within a couple of hours and didn't make a mess. Everything was good. I had a clogged up kitchen sink, and they ran a snake down there and cleaned it out. I would give them an A for the experience.”

Everything's prescheduled as far as the pricing goes and they were responsive and did a complete job. We've used them a couple of times, not that frequently, but we never had any complication. They've replaced faucets and toilets. I give them an A.”

They did some work before we moved in, and it is just easy and convenient for me to call that number. We had them come out when we had a backed-up toilet and the chain on the toilet broke. Something disintegrated inside the back of the toilet, and it wasn't working. They've also done a disposal and showerhead. I'd give them an A.”

“I have had work done by them, and they've been very good. They are prompt with their scheduling, and they stuck to the schedule. They notified me when they would be right in the immediate area. The price was quoted before the work was actually done, and the necessary adjustments were completed. They have installed a hot water heater and done a drain cleanout. They also did some faucet work after a freeze, which was just beyond my skill abilities. I'd definitely give them an A.”

“Benjamin Franklin was excellent, and they took their time to care about things when they did plumbing for us. We expected them to clear the pipes, but they explained the reason it was clogged and took the time to make sure we understood the situation. If we had any problems, they suggested future solutions. I have been using their services for just a year, probably, and I would recommend them to a friend if I could. There is not anything that they could have done better, in my opinion. I'd give them an A.”
