    I just wasted $1564 with these guys. I had a water leak somewhere on an 800 water service line to my home & apartments. Before scheduling a visit, I asked lots of questions about their experience, state-of-the-art equipment, and success rate. I scheduled my estimate appointment and provided my current job address. Their office scheduler called and said that their senior tech (John) would be there in about 45 minutes. I waited at my job site, and about 90 minutes later I get another call, telling me that he was at a previous property that I had sold months before and was not my current address. So, another 15-minute wait while he drove to the right locationâ ¦ all the while Iâ  m waiting for him by the street in my car. As it says on their trucks, â  If there is any delay, itâ  s you we pay..â  Damned Lie. A nice guy, he walked the waterline, looking for damp spots and probing (pointed steel rod) along the way. He didnâ  t find the source of the leak and suggested that he use his acoustic listening probe to find the leak. He continuously explained how successful he had been with it and had always found the leak, even with pipes located beneath concrete and asphalt driveways, with lesser flows and more depth. With this assurance, he spent 35 minutes drafting an estimate/contract while I again waited in my car. (The listening device is essentially what The Lone Rangerâ  s friend, Tonto would do by putting his ear to the ground.. but with more amplification.) With his â  goferâ  tapping on the pipe, John was able to hear and locate the pipes under the driveways. Yet, after 4+ hours, he was unable to find the leak. His time, my time, and my $1564 are lost for nothing. John lost about 30 minutes of time when the probeâ  s rechargeable battery went dead and required recharging. Poor planning from either not charging before leaving the shop or not charging during the lunch break caused this time loss. Also, the choice of equipment without a swappable battery was a poor choice. I asked if they had the proper high-tech equipment & training when I called to schedule my visit. They assured me that they did. After the failure to find the fault, he explained that if the leak doesn't spray it may not make enough noise to be heard. Obviously, they did not have the best equipment for the job. (It was a halfway step between the pointed stick and something much better.) A better choice might have been to use a tracer gas system, such as a Variotech 460, which forces a compressed gas into the pipe and senses that gas on the surface. The gas is lighter than air, moving upward (vs downward like water) toward the surface through porous surfaces like concrete or asphalt. Overall, the company was poorly managed, poorly equipped and I felt lacked veracity when professing their past success in leak locating. They're saying, The Punctual Plumbers is a lie.

    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.
