On Sunday the 22nd, we had out of town guests, 2 championship football games to watch and dinner to serve when as luck would have it our sewer drain decided to back up. Neither of our 2 bathrooms would drain, we had water coming up in one of the showers and were rapidly going into panic mode.

We tried several plumbers in the book that advertised 24 hour service. One was busy and couldn’t get there for several hours, one said there was a misprint in the yellow pages and he didn’t serve our area. Several others didn’t answer. Finally we found Effective Plumbing’s add and called them. They were very courteous and understanding and the lady said that someone would be there between 2 and 3.

I believe I made the call shortly before 1 PM. The owner arrived around 1:45 PM.

Once looking over the situation he gave me a written estimate with several different options to make the repairs. Once we decided he went to work and in less than an hour had the problem fixed and our sewer running freely again.

He had to come back on the following Tuesday to complete some additional work and he arrived promptly on time. He completed all the work and gave me some very helpful advice on how to prevent the problem from happening again.

He was prompt, courteous, completed the work in a very satisfactory manner and all for the original price quote.
I am very pleased with the service and would highly recommend him for anyone with plumbing problems.

First rate service! I called Effective Plumbing at 3 pm with a clogged main sewer line and sewage backing up into my home. Josh responded the same day and had the problem fixed in an hour, and the cost was less than the quotes I had received from two other companies who couldn’t even squeeze in my emergency the same day! The service was excellent and I am recommending Effective Plumbing to all my friends and family. I will definitely be calling on Effective Plumbing again for all my future plumbing needs.
Effective plumbing met my needs quickly and with professionalism. I would definitely call them again and recommend Effective Plumbing to all my friends. Julie Hall
Effective Plumbing gave excellent service to my parents on this holiday weekend. Pricing very fair, not expensive like you would think. Joshua very nice and helpful hints. If I lived in the area, I would definitely give them a call.
