Around here it is also "real plumbers" doing jobs like that but no plumber with respect for them selves would do that job around here. I have seen and redone enough of their work to tell you that the company doing it may have a real plumbing license but is a hack company using unskilled workers, so not actually real plumbers doing the work. You claim to be so great at stealing our jobs because we are crooks, well we provide skilled plumbers that would never put a bomb in someone's house like I have seen your type of "plumbers" do by capping a t&p relieve valve on a waterheater. We provide actual quality products unlike the crap you guys provide. Our price is our price unlike you where customers always get a cheap price but then get charged extra for all sorts of things and end up paying our rates anyway but get your crappy work. Most customers I see that had work done by your type of "plumbers" say they called us now because you rip them off.

This was the only review for Lowes w/h install on OC Yelp. Bait and switch just like you posted.

When I worked in the plumbing trade in California I saw a ton of unsafe stuff. Because of the company I worked for, and their practice I swore off the plumbing trade for ethical reasons. But just when you think you're out it draws you back in, just in a different state with ****ed up codes!

At one time I was an unsafe plumber. Until I learned at least the very basics from a Master Plumber I didn't realize how much damage I could have done! I feel shameful to this day thinking of the home owners who I left in a unsafe condition with them thinking they were in good hands.

I don't want to leave anyone to be left unsafe for any reason in their own home. Call me an ******* for charging what we charge, but I can sleep at night.

Btw, would you like to talk code and safety? From the sound of it you push paper and haven't spent a day in the field. Send your poor uneducated folks out for pennies on the dollar to make your dirty cash!

You sir are the type who cares nothing about code and safety. Sleep well until your liability runs out.
