Additional Notes

Complaint: In January 2015 Ideal Plumbing was asked to clean and video waste water lines on my property. I was quoted an estimated price that I agreed to. The technician called me at the end of the day to tell me that he had tried to clean with a snake the bathroom sink drain and could not complete the job because he broke his snake. He said he would return tomorrow to fix the problem. When I received the bill I was surprised by the amount owed and by all the charges for additional staff to help complete the job as well as being charged for tools broken by their tech. I sent a letter to Ideal and asked for an explanation. They did not respond to the request.

Desired Settlement: I want an explanation of the charges and refund of part of the money paid.

Received complaint notification from BBB.
I called Mr. ******* and asked if we could get together and discuss his concern about his invoice billing.
Mr. ******* agreed to meet at my office to go over what we did and why and help better understand our
billing and work was performed.
Mr. *******: Property owner
*** *******: President/CEO Ideal
****** ********: Ideal lead technician on the job
We all met at Ideal and we went over scope of work and what part of the work was in dispute.
****** explained the need for what was done and why.
Mr. ******* was satisfied with our agreement to refund $92.90 for a damaged drain snake cable he was
charged for, due to roots in drain.
Check in the amount of $92.90 was mailed to Mr. *******.
Ideal feels it has met Mr. *******’s desired settlement and that goodwill was reestablished between parties.
Any questions regarding this complaint please contact *** ******* at ***** ******** or email
