In 2018 I had a frozen kitchen pipe that had burst. I called the first plumber that was available. They came out and replaced the pipe but I had asked them to use installation as this pipe would freeze again. Luckily I made it through that winter by shutting off that pipe from the basement. On very frigid nights. this year in February the same thing happened again and I called them, they came out I asked them to install insulation as I had rolls of insulation. They did not have time to do anything much as they were in and out in 10 minutes, a security camera can prove that. I also; because of being visually impaired as I am partially blind in one eye and legally blind in the other I always record my business transaction so I can prove this. only the hot water came on but he told me that the pipe had ice in it was Saturday when the temperatures were in the 60s! I was fortunate or suspected enough to store water in tubs as it was supposed to go back to freezing in a few days, which it did. I called him to tell him that the water still did not come on and wanted to purchase heat wrap to avoid another freeze but he never responded back after I left the message on his number. After a week I called to tell him that the water was not burst and could he come to take a look still no response when I was down to my last few quarts of water I called again and left a message, he called back and said f****t (self-evident)on my answering machine then hung up. I called back but now he has blocked his phone. This is not a good neighborhood, so perhaps those who left praises have a better relationship but this happened to me and I can prove it. No one would write this as it could be considered slander and libel. but I have the tape and the phone logs. I called the better business before and they said that it seems to be more of a legal issue as they are responsible for compliance and advised to see a lawyer to get my money back as this involves a civil case . They charge $269 last year the problem reappeared and they never used insulation. This year they took the money and left without solving the water still not running. I had to call roto rooter to fix the leaking and now I want to see how I can get my money refunded when they did not do any of the proper procedures and did not provide any proper work orders or invoice just cashed the checks. I have an audio of the promise and the failures. Why he did what he did is not for me to say. Maybe it might take a civil court to get my money back for the damages and the work not properly done and the suffering I endured thinking that they could be trusted. Again if you live in a better neighborhood you might be treated better and have good things to say, but I live in a rotten area and was treated exactly as I described perhaps that is how they do business. It is hard to type this both physically and emotionally as I am 62 years old and have poor vision. Sill trying to figure why he did this maybe a judge will decid

Eric fit me in after I called at 11 am on an already busy Saturday. He was knowledgeable, efficient and very well priced. It was a great end to what looked to me like a disaster at 11 am.

Eric is simply amazing!!! He is THE most experienced, kind, and capable master plumber I've ever met. I am a real estate broker and had a problem with the dishwasher. With the parade of appliance companies and other plumbing companies sending dozens of technicians, everyone is pointing finger at the other. Then comes Eric. It only took him less than 10 minutes to fix all the problems. He is also punctual. Other technician always give you 3 to 4 hours window, Eric will tell you when he will be there. And he IS. Amazing plumbing, amazing guy!!! I highly highly recommend him. Ed Hsu

I called Eric Rod from Rod Plumbing and was extremely impressed with everything from the first call on. He was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and honest. He answered all of my questions and took the time to work with me. Very competitive pricing and just a great transaction from start to finish. If you have Plumbing needs, and live in the Philadelphia area, Rod Plumbing is the first place you should call. I don't write many reviews unless I'm extremely impressed and that's exactly what happened here. Thanks again for the work and fixing and replacing my water heater system.

Very happy with their service, professionalism and price. I would highly recommend them before contacting a big name company. Same day service, no fee for coming out to do an evaluation.(A big name company were charging a fee to do an assessment) Overall experience, extremely pleased.

  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.
