Review by in La Crescent, MN
The service was for Radon Mitigation in our home that had higher than acceptable Radon levels. The work was professionally done, and care was taken to protect carpeting etc during their work. The crew updated us home owners as they did their work and asked permissions for needed modifications to the house. I would recommend this company to anyone looking for quality workmanship, congenial communication and moderate pricing.
Response by American Waterworks: Thanks for choosing us, Paul! We are so pleased to hear that you are happy with the outcome of your project.

Hard working, professional, kept me appraised of progress, problems, and solutions. They were here for 10 hrs and worked through the dark and a storm to finish the job. Left the job site clean.

Review by Derrik S. in Minneapolis, MN
I hired American Waterworks to help remove water from my basement... After they came, the crew broke a pipe that caused MORE water than we EVER had in our basement before to flood our basement. When I called American Water Works, they tried giving EVERY excuse they could to deny culpability for the flooded basement. Even the general MANAGER told me it **was not their problem**. I would give American Waterworks as **ZERO** rating if this allowed it. I have never been more disappointed in service or project than I was with American Water Works... DO NOT HIRE THIS COMPANY!
Response by American Waterworks: Derrik, we did not give you any excuses and we told you numerous times that we would come out to assess the damage and see what the problem was. Time and time again, if our team makes a mistake, we go out and help the customer and make sure our mistake is resolved. We?re a reputable company that has been in business and helping customers for over 30 years. The situation wasn?t handled at all like you?ve explained in this review. You spoke to 6 or 7 different people in our company and you didn't want us to come back out. You weren't happy with any solution that we recommended after many conversations. You were using profanity and being disrespectful to our team. We will not subject our team to that kind of treatment. The water you experienced in your basement after our crew did the installation, was from your washing machine and had nothing to do with our system. You had moved your washing machine away from the wall. We were not sure how the existing connections were. At that point in time, it would be your responsibility to move it back and make sure everything was properly connected. As stated in your contract, everything in the work area needed to be moved 6ft away from the walls. We?re sorry that this happened. It?s unfortunate for both of us because we certainly don?t want you to be dissatisfied with our work.

Review by in Byron, MN
Josh Schultz did an amazing job working around my schedule to help me solve my sump pump issues. He was able to direct me to the exact sump pump system that was perfect for my situation. He was pleasant, knowledgeable, and did not try to up sell me into more than what I needed. He communicated with the city to make sure my new sump pump system was current with city code and laws. The installation crew did a fabulous job and had the new sump pump system installed very quickly. Thank you American Waterworks!
Response by American Waterworks: Hi Samuel! That's great to hear. We're so pleased that you had such a positive experience with our team. Thank you for sharing and for choosing us.

Great company to work with. Dustin did a great job explaining what we needed done and the workers did a good job installing the sump pump and the drainage line. Rene was very helpful to come out a second time to make sure it passed a city inspection. Thank you.
Response by American Waterworks: Thank you for sharing, Jan! We are so pleased to hear that. Thank you for choosing us!
