Complaint: ALL NEW PLUMBING JOB $7,500 THAN STARTED FROM DAY ONE WITH LEAKS AND CONTINUES UNTIL TONIGHT 1-8-2012. WE HAVE HAD A TOTAL OF 8 LEAKS IN FIVE BATHROOMS, KITCHENS AND DISWASHER CONNECTIONC MADE BY GENTLEMEAN PLUMBERS OWNER AND HIRED HELP. HAVE HAD TO FIX THESE LEAKS ON WEEKENDS DUE TO NO WEEKEND CALLS ANSWERED. HAD A NEW LEAK THIS EVENING ON A POORLY MADE, ON SITE PLASTIC TO METAL JOINT THAT WAS HAND SQUEEZED. MY UNDERSTANDING THAT QUALIFIED PLUMBING COMPANIES USE HYDRAULIC TOOLS TO MAKE PROPER CONNECTIONS USING PEX TO BRASS SPLICE OR TO PEX CUTOFF. I INSTALLED A COMPLETE PEX RADIANT FLOOR SYSTEM WITH EXACTLY 20 TIMES MORE CONNECTIONS USING SAME MATERIALS WITH EXACTLY "ZERO" LEAKS IN SAME TIME FRAME. THIS SYSTEM HAS SAME WATER PRESSURE AS PLUMBING SYSTEM. THIS WAS MY FIRST TIME TO USE PEX FITTINGS, AND NONE OF MINE HAVE LEAKED!
Desired Settlement: BE MADE WHOLE FOR COST OF REPLACING NUMEROUS FITTINGS, PIPING AND MY TIME AT SAME RATE I PAID FOR THE POOR INSTALLATION. INSPECTION OF SYSTEM BY THIRD PARTY, COST TO BE SHARED AND RECOMMENDATIONS TO BE FOLLOWED UP TO COMPLETE REPLACEMENT AS REQUIRED.
In response to complaint #*******.
According to our records, the customer signed a contract with us on 10-4-2007. The total contract price was $5,900.00 to do the plumbing work in a new construction home.
Our quick books log shows a signing payment made on 10/4/07 and a final payment made in 12/08.
Since this date 12/08 we were never contacted at all by the customer reguarding any leaks and or problems releating to our work done at 1405 Bellows Road..
Unforturately, We are having trouble locating the formal signed contract between the customer and Country Gentlemen Plumbing, but at this time we were using a water supply line made by a company called Kitech. This particular manufacturer has experienced many problens with this piping, and I believe there is currently a Class action suit against this company.
We are very sorry for any and all inconviences the customer endured and if we wer informed at all of any problems would have certainly been there to fix them.
Please let the customer know that if there is anything that we can do to help in any way at all, we would be glad to.
