Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/04/03) */ Thank You for reading our response to this. The technician we sent out to clean this line has been cleaning sewer lines for over 15 years and is very good at getting lines open. He is not payed on commission and has nothing to gain by selling anything that is not needed. on 3-28-14 he spent well over an hour cutting through roots. at the end by the city main he hit a very big root ball. After cutting on this along time, he got through it. ran another 15 ft than got stuck. This is the common practice in cleaning roots from a line. Getting stuck is usually caused by a collapsed or damaged line. We worked over 2 hours trying to get the cable back out. This line was damaged by the massive roots not by us. The owner had another company out that dug up his yard installed clean outs, cut up our $400 cable and still couldn't get the cable out. we went back and spent 6 more hours attempting to get the cable out of this damaged line. We have not billed him for anything, we are out a $400 cable and we are not liable in anyway for us attempting to open his damaged line. Per the customer everything is working fine. This is with no charges from us. He is satisfied at this time. Please call me anytime with any questions regarding this. Please note there will most likely be additional problems with this line from the root damage. Thank You, ********** ************ Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/04/12) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) There are no trees in my yard or near street where he said he ran into a very big root ball at the end of the service line. City of Englewood was called out who maintains main service line. A service person came out an looked down the manhole an saw the snake cable in the main line. City of Englewood called ************************ because they own the main sewer an also want to know what they wanted done. ************************ rep. came out to survey the situation, the rep. saw the balled up snake in the main sewer line, at this point the Rep. called Time Plumbing office to request them to come out an to remove it from the main line, because it is your snake and you are responsible, they also requested to be present when they arrived to do the work. Time Plumbing came out and they attempted to removed the ball from the city main sewer line, without calling or waiting for ************* rep.. Time plumbing claimed they spent 6 hrs. more trying to remove the balled up snake cable. Later that afternoon ************* Rep. arrived to surveyed the situation, an told me he could not determine if Time plumbing had cut off the balled up snake or pulled all of the snake out of the line. Saturday March 29th I hired another contractor to come out, he dug a 3 ft. by 5 ft. trench near the house an put in two clean outs. One for the house and one for the street, he also ran a camera down my service line to see what he would be facing. " I have a copy of camera video" he also ran a three inch snake down the sewer line to clean it out. He stated my sewer line and the "saddle" or city tap out in street was not damaged. The second contractor stated that he would guarantee it for 3 yrs. Time plumbing stated the line was damaged by a massive root ball and not by them there is no massive root ball at the end of service line. Time tech. is so experienced then why didn't he ran a camera down the service line first to see what he is facing.Why would the tech. run 15 ft. more of the snake into the city's main line. The tech. was the one who cut off the snake cable under my house. Time plumbing stated they are out $400 for a snake cable. Second Contractor did not cut off the cable, the only thing he did was to attempt to remove it from my service line. I believe if the service line is damage Time plumbing should be responsible. Time plumbing did not show any remorse or concern about the problem. I feel that Time plumbing should reimburse me for the cost of the second contractor which is $2000 for cleaning up their mistake.
