Complaint: I hired Trenchless to fix a blockage in my sewer. Two days after they left. the blockage is worse. I hired Trenchless to fix a blockage in my sewer. 2 days after they left, the blockage was much worse. I now am getting dirt in my tub with a reversed flow of water which never occurred before they worked on my sewer Date of service: 11/11/13 Invoice # ***** Service Rep: ***** ********** Paid with my Visa card: $349.00 Their ads state that they will do this work for $99, but when the technician first stuck his shovel in the ground, he said, "By the way, this is a $495 hole." They advertise $99, but charge $495 (or try to). 'Bait-and-switch' advertising, which I thought was illegal. As I write this, their website still shows a $99 price. I have contacted Visa about getting my money back. The promised testing was sticking a hose into the sewer. I am a retired DoD employee. I see no other place to put this info.
