I had just called Ben Franklin Plumbing in Pompton Plains, New Jersey this morning to have my bathtub drain snaked out since there is standing water in the tub. I had to give the girl my name 5 times since she could not get my name correct. I told her that there was standing water in the main bathtub and I needed to have the water drained out of the tub and she said that the earliest anyone... Read more

$462 to snake a toilet. Yellow pages full page add "no extra charge on weekends or evenings." My toilet clogged on a Sunday morning. Was told by phone $99.00 service fee on Sundays, however that would be rolled into cost of job if work was performed by their technician. This was made very clear, no difference in price from Sunday to Monday, as long as they performed the work. Was told this... Read more

  • Toilet Replacement Charge
  • 21

Needed toilet replaced and shower cold water stem replaced. Would not give price quotes for toilets over the phone even though I told them exactly what kind I needed. They gave me a 1-3 pm window, but did not show up until after 7 pm - they did call and tell me. The plumber called before he came to my house and quoted me over $ 600 for a new toilet. Had I known that, I would have gone to... Read more

We had a toilet that wasn't working, call BFP. Plumber comes to house, looks at toilet and tells us it will be $198. We are getting ready to put house on the market and needed the repair done quickly so we said go ahead. He comes down the stairs a half hour later and says sorry but I needed to do more than I thought and you now owe $382!!! To re-work the inside of a toilet! Which I could go buy... Read more

Similar to previous stories, I was in a hurry to replace a leaking garbage disposal and when on the phone I asked for a quote and they told me they could not give you one until the technician evaluated the problem. When the technician showed up and told me what I already new (leaking garbage disposal), he proceeded to tell me that it will cost me $399 installed. I told him I was not going to do... Read more

This company is not reputable. They are taking advantage of seniors. Had them come out to fix a bad disposal. They put a small unit in and when we inquired if they had a larger one they said not on the truck and if they go get one we would have to pay another trip charge. Since trip charge was so expensive we were cornered. They put the small one in and then charged 431.00 for this. You can't... Read more

Had a basement drain backup with "dirty" water. Called them as emergency after hours (a Thursday night). The plumber who responded was glad to hear there were outside clean-outs between the house & the septic tank. He snaked out the line, collected a hefty check and left. Less than 36 hours later, Saturday morning, when the cleanup crew was in the basement taking out contaminated drywall,... Read more

Noticed that the drain in the basement was backing up into the house. Call BFP to have them come out and cut the roots out of the drain and clear the blockage. They immediately flopped open a price book and told me it would be $900! I was really in a jam so I had them do the work. It took a total of 30min to finish. They told me that the problem was at the street and the city would need to fix a... Read more
