Plumbing Warning Message

No More Scams, Problems, or Horror Stories: How We Are Your Plumbing Solution!

Better a little with righteousness, than much gain with injustice. – Proverbs 16:8

Have you or someone you know been caught up in the plumbing scam sweeping the New Jersey area? In some shops, hired salespeople, not dedicated plumbers poke at your sewer line to free up a stoppage without the necessary good faith efforts to actually scrape your line clear of roots, scale and debris. In order for them to perform this vital service properly, they need to use aggressive cutting heads, attached to heavy duty equipment.

How the Plumbing Scam Works and How to Spot It Ahead of Time

The scam is not as easy to spot as you think. A loss leader price of approximately $90 to clear any drain is repeatedly advertised. One day, your sewer drain is clogged, and so you make the call.

A well-polished “plumber” shows up on time and is perceived as serving you expertly and honestly. Pretending to work aggressively, this person will get the sewer line running again, using only a point instead of a scale busting, root sheering cutting head. Once the minimalist effort has taken place and the water has gone down, the unscrupulous “salesperson” offers you a “free” camera inspection, which shows you how “terrible” the line is and precedes to leverage you into buying an overpriced “emergency” sewer line replacement.

If you refuse, no problem! Without any consent, you have already been setup for future sales opportunities by way of their one year guarantee to keep the line clear and running free. All this for $90? Nothing can go wrong at this point, right? The problem is, the line will not stay clear and free of clogs for long. They knowingly keep you in bondage and frustration as they put their interest in profits first as they return to repeat the “sales” process over and over again. This results in your valuable time wasted, disruption to your home life, and frustration. To make matters worse, your likely to have to defend against aggressive sales techniques pointed at your homes heating and cooling equipment.

Their sales process is very simple:

1. Pretend to perform the sewer cleaning service correctly
2. Camera the sewer for “free”
3. Return and do the service again for “free”
4. Wear you down until you buy an overpriced replacement sewer

What to Do If Your Sewer Main Is Clogged

Once your plumber is onsite and has a chance to survey the problem, insist on a firm price in writing before the work is started. Then watch; really watch to see that indeed aggressive cutting heads are being used, attached to heavy-duty equipment (Ours weighs in at well over two hundred pounds!). To get the best results possible, the sewer cleaning cutting heads should be applied to the entire length of your sewer multiple times.

Union County Sewer and Drain Service

Most sewer stoppages only need a thorough, honest cleaning by a capable company. It takes a company with real integrity and the application of aggressive cutting heads attached to heavy-duty equipment to service your sewer issue properly. The end result should be a long lasting, stoppage-free sewer drain. Granted, some sewers do fail and need to be repaired or replaced due to old age, incorrect pitch and reoccurring root infestation, but the vast majority just needs to be cleaned properly. And never, NEVER flush anything down into your drain lines other than toilet paper; all other personal hygiene items should be disposed of by other means.

If you don’t believe these companies are being deceptive and have poor business practices, just Google “$99 Dollar Drain Cleaning Lawsuits”, and see what comes up!

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. – John 1:5

Good Tidings is one of the most professional companies I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Always prompt, clean and have done outstanding work on multiple AC installs, as well as, general plumbing. My most recent experience was with Matt and Joel who installed a new AC unit in our home. Excellent techs and great product. In addition Brian performed work on our furnace with great results. We called for service and they were there the same day. Outstanding company that I would recommend to anyone!

Good Tidings provides outstanding service. Alex took my call on a Saturday, called me back quickly with an ETA. Brian and his partner arrived right on time, and did a great job replacing my hot water heater and servicing my heating system. They were skillful, efficient, professional, and friendly. I would highly recommend Good Tidings to everyone.

Brian was great with assessing the problem, fixing it and then cleaning up. I had 2 separate clogs (main in basement and 2nd floor bathtub) that he was able to fix. Overall, services were priced on the higher side, but money well spent for the A+ service provided. Recommended.

We had excellent service from Good Tidings! Our air conditioner broke during the hottest week of the year. We had another company come in, charge us, and tell us nothing was wrong but it was still broken. Thankfully, Good Tidings came in and within an hour was able to tell us exactly what was wrong and fix our air conditioner! They did an excellent job explaining everything and talking us through reasonable pricing options. We'll definitely be using them again!
