Additional Notes

Complaint: In 2006 we had a clogged mainline and called Advanced to help us. They put a camera in the line and showed us footage where the mainline was cracked, caving in and had roots in it. They said it would need replacing and they would be happy to do it for around $5000. We were told our mainline ran under the driveway. Not having $5000 dollars at the time, they removed the roots and we have gotten along with one other company helping us unclog roots. We chose another company the next time because Advanced was very expensive, they kept finding things to fix that we didn't ask them to find, and they left their stickers on all our plumbing and heating appliances. (They did heating at the time, too.) This summer, the city of ******* is replacing our street and affected sewer lines, so we asked them to include replacing ours since we were told it needed replacing. After hunting around for the sewer line for 4 hours, we called a plumbing company to come and do a camera to find it. The line was found, not under the driveway as Advanced claimed, but on the other side of our property. And the camera revealed that our mainline was just fine, no cracks or caving, etc. So we had our driveway torn out when it really didn't need it. And will have to spend $10,000 to replace it. Add on the cost of the 4 hours labor digging. As an aside, the plumbing company that assisted in locating the line guessed that it was Advanced that gave us the bad information. They had just come from another home that had gotten the same bad information. When the 2nd camera took a view, there was nothing wrong with their line.

Desired Settlement: A settlement of up to 1/2 our current cost of the driveway (Half of $10,000=$5000). The most important thing is that the word get out so that others will not be frauded.

Business Response:

Unfortunately, we cannot accept responsibility for work that we quoted 6 years ago. At the time, we believed our assessment of the situation to be correct. We did not do the work, we did not charge for the work and had we done the work, we would have adjusted the estimate down if we realized that not as much work was needed. We are very sorry for the situation that occured.

Thank you.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I called them to clean a Sewer Drain, They did arrive and put a small drain cleaner thru the sewer line. I ask them to put a larger cleaner down the line but the refused. The real adjenda was to try to sell me a very over priced sewer line replacement. 3 days after they were there the sewer backed up again, they were called and I was informed that the only way to fix it was the overpriced replacement. One of thier sevice tech came out and started my washing machine and completely flooded my basement. The next day I contacted another sewer service and they came out and cleaned the sewer line and it has been working perfectly since. Advanced Plumbing job performance was terrible and did not live up to their warrantee. All they really wanted to do was sell me a grossly overpriced sewer line project.

Desired Settlement: I should truly sue them for the damages to my house

Business Response:

We were called to do a $99 main drain service for ** ********* on November 29, 2011.  We did do the auger of the line & also did the complimentary camera inspection.  The camera technician found the line to be orangeburg which is a material that is outdated & commonly fails causing sewage back ups into homes with this type of main line.  We gave the customer a warranty that is good for 1 year from the original date of service, or 2 call backs, whichever comes first.   The warranty was utilized days later when we returned on December 3, 2011 & augered the line again.  So we did stand behind our warranty & haven’t heard anything since, saying the customer needed to  utilize the warranty.  As far as selling the sewer line, we advertise professional service & I feel it would have been unprofessional for our technician not to inform him of the risks of an orangeburg sewer line not to give him options to replace the line.  Prior to this letter, I was unaware of the basement flooding.   The amount paid to us for the service was $99.  We did perform the work he was charged for but I am willing to offer a refund of the $99 for *** *********. 


Thank you,
