Review by in Social Circle, GA
I hired this company for a well repair and he didn't know what to do with my issue. When the well was switched on it was shaking, he said something about adding a bunch of weights and that this was a major issue that couldn't be fixed. He didn't do anything and still charged me $125 "service fee". In 28 years this had never happened before. I feel I paid him for nothing since I had another company come out today and this other man said he was able to fix it with just 2 bolts and didn't charge me at all.

Not the kind of people you would want to do business with. They show up with predetermined ideas of what work they will do without having examined the problem(conversation about digging up line before Derek arrived). Charge much more than standard fees and do not stick to what they themselves state is their customary charge. Charge extra for what they call "backwashing" which involves using your garden hose to wash down the sides of the tank. To pump the tank about $650 to replace the sump pump $1700. Derek disappeared to get the pump and came back a few hours later when he said he'd be gone a few minutes. Never again. Total scamsters.

Review by in Winder, GA
to begin with i was quoted 295.00 for getting the job done...then when they came to my home i was told that it would be an extra 150.00 for digging ...a total of 445.00 .then the man told me that he would come get me when he was thru pumping so i could see what he had done...and when he came and got me the septic tank was all covered up...and he was finished so i didn't get to see the results of what he had done for my money. a total bad experience.
Response by A. Akins Plumbing, Inc.: 295.00 is a basic quote for pumping a septic tank provided they are the correct depth which is 6 to 12 inches this customers tank was much deeper and they were also quoted befour we done the job.

Their professional employee came out to my home within 24 hours of my e-mail, and they got the job done within 2 days. They were very reasonably priced, professional & friendly. I would recommend A/Akins Plumbing, Inc. to anyone. I will definitely use them again for future plumbing needs!

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
