I took the recommendation of a neighbor and used Ben Franklin Plumbing to help diagnose a leak. Ben Franklin states that they will fix the issue and show up on time as their key business model. 1st appointment the technician showed up on time but was clueless about the issue. The Second appointment the technician showed up on time and kept giggling and muttering to himself how expensive this will... Read more

My husband contacted BF after our kitchen renovation. We needed to have a new faucet installed, which we supplied, and to reattach our existing dishwasher. Since we could not locate our home phone book with our honest plumber's # in it, he called these thieves. We also asked them to replace our bathroom sink's pop-up drain. They charged us $1,755.60 for this work. I have gotten subsequent... Read more

Our water heater broke Feb 14, 2013. Since Ben Franklin had installed the last one we called them again. Marvin arrived quickly, installed the water and did a very good job. Since it was a bit of an emergency we had agreed to the parice of $1829. The next day we began to think it was extraordinarily expensive. At that time we called Home Depot and were told that a new water heater, installed... Read more

Plumber arrived promptly at 8:37 a.m. He reviewed the problem, checked his notebook for the cost template and the charge was $388! This for changing 2 sections of PVC pipe and... Read more
