Additional Notes

Complaint: Toilet, tub and sink backed up. Main Man came out to clean out main drain. The sink was another issue said Main Man. They were there for hours and charged an outrageous amount of $315.00. He was supposed to return but didn't call or return until the tenant called "Stan" complaining. Four days later the tub, toilet and sink all backed up and over-flowed worse than before. I called another licensed plumber who said the price was crazy and doesn't know any other plumber who would charge that amount to clean out a main drain. The "new" plumber snaked it out to the main and cleaned up his mess. Stan from Main Man plumbing did not even clean up after himself.

Desired Settlement: I think a return of half the money would be more than fair since he didn't fix the problem for more than a few days and the price of $315 didn't even cover the cost of clearing the sink drain.

Business Response: Business responded to complaint.  See attached.

Business response also transcribed below by BBB staff 10/2/14.
BBB ********
**** called with tub drain problem.  We worked on drain for 45 min. Problem was not tub it was main drain.  We removed toilet and cleaned it from toilet flange.  We found tree roots several feminine items and a condom.  Toilet ran fine after that.  Bathroom sink needed work.  **** was called on Friday she did not call back for 4 days she said she was going to look at problem and call back.  She never did  We were there twice. 
**** *****

Business Response: Business response taken over the phone by BBB staff 11/19/14.  The work that was done was the work that was requested.  There was more going on than the customer realized.  She was supposed to have gotten back to them, but she never did.  The work that she had done by another plumber was the work that she was supposed to have been giving them so they could finish the work properly. The work that she had done extra, was work that they would have done if the consumer would have called them back. They charged a fair price and they completed the work requested, don't feel any refund is due. He said what he pulled out of the drain were items that never should have been there in the first place.  He has no idea what the other plumber pulled out of the drain.

Consumer Response: Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID ********, and have determined that this does not resolve my complaint.
