Review by Richard H. in Southfield, MI
DO NOT HIRE THIS GUY!!!!! I called this guy because all I needed was a dielectric union sweated to the pipe so that I could complete the installation of my hot water tank. For a "professional" plumber this should have only taken 15-20 mins max!! This dude wanted to sweat it while it was on the tank while it clearly states on the tank DO NOT SWEAT ON TANK or it will melt the lining. This dude wanted to tell me that wasn't true because the liner was at the bottom of the tank. Then Mr "Professional" goes and burns the rubber gasket up and had to get a new one. Then he wanted to put the new one on without the rubber gasket, I had to get the package and show him the illustration that shows how it should be put together. What PROFESSIONAL doesn't know that!!!!! Then he goes and solders the dielectric union crooked and was struggling to get it to line up. I had to tell him the it wasn't aligned right and that's why it wouldn't fit. Then he wants ME to help fix it! Ain't that some shit!!! That's what I called you for... To fix it! This dude is grabbing and shaking the pipes and then uses one pipe as leverage to try and tightening another pipe!!! After an hr and a half the issue is fixed..... SO I THOUGHT!!!! I come home from work and what do I find? Water everywhere!! This pipe is mad leaking everywhere and had been running out for 8 plus hours! I immediately called Ed to let him know that he messed up my pipes and he needed to fix this. His attitude was nasty and rude, he denied all responsibility and hung up on me. When I called back we discussed him fixing this so my family and I could have hot water. He stated he would be there at 10 am the following morning. Fast forward to the next morning, it's 10 am and Ed is not here. After many calls and a half hr later Ed calls back and states...... " Mannn, I'm in the hospital, my sugar is up and I had to come to come to the emergency room last night". He then goes on to say " you're gonna have to get somebody else out there to fix it "!!! So I ask when are you getting out of the hospital ? "He says I don't know, I ain't got time to be talking about this"!! So I said" you want me to pay someone else to come out and fix what you messed up!?!??!! Why should I have to pay someone again????? Ed hung up on me and would not answer or return my calls. I ultimately ended up spending $260.00 additional dollars on another plumber to fix the pipes that he messed up and dielectric union that clearly was not fixed right the first time!! I should have known something was wrong when I saw him go to the neighbors house across the street after giving him clear and concise directions! DO NOT HIRE ED THE PLUMBER! HE SAYS HE'S WORKING HARD, YEAH WORKING HARD AT RIPPING PEOPLE OFF!!!
Response by Ed The Plumber: This customer installed his hot water tank himself. He did not know what he was doing. hes blaming me for his mistakes.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
