When the economy is bad,and a contractor has alot of employess and trucks
on the road you are more likely to get taken,even from a honest contractors
at times.FACT.There IS a bottom line for how much a company HAS to make
each day to break even,and that’s just to break even.WE are NOT in business
to break even.HVAC is a tough business.The overhead can be ridiculous.Each
tech that goes out in the morning has to come back with a minimum amount of
money to cover his pay for the day,and business overhead and profit.Profit
is NOT a bad word.I DO NOT tell customer they have to do this,do that.I
suggest to them to change certain parts cause of their age,visual condition
of the part.This is called preventive maintenance.Commercial I look for
everything I can write up to make money.However,my boss does not mark the
parts up ridiculously .
Roto Rooter. Worst company out there.
Roto Rooter in business because of a big name, hundreds of employees and a
very good advertising. consumers see big names on commercials and they
think ” well they must be good” same reason why everyone wants a Trane or
Carrier unit over something like a Goodman brand. Same components,
Roto Rooter is the biggest scam out there.Never call these people up even
if your life depends on it.A good friend of mine had a main drain stoppage
at his house.I was out of town when this happened,so I couldn`t do the job
right.So he decided to call up Roto Rooter to come out and fix the
problem.The guy from Roto Rooter told my friend”He had to pull the toilet
to be able to run the sewer cable.”The guy didn`t want to go on the roof,
by running the snake down the vent.So he pulled the toliet ran the sewer
snake to unstop the blockage..For some unknown reason the guy wasn`t able
to unstop the blockage..So he never installed the toilet.So after it was
all said and done..Roto Rooter charged my friend $300.00 just to come out,
pull the toilet but failed to do what he was suppose to do.I went over to
his house, ran about 75 feet of cable..Unstopped the blockage.I then
installed the toliet afterwards.I charged him $100.00.BEWARE OF ROTO
Throughout the news footage the reporter kept saying HOT WATER HEATER. If
the water is hot, why heat it. What you probably need is a COLD WATER
HEATER or a HOT WATER COOLER. LOL
I WOULD HAVE PUT ONE IN HIS HEAD ?………MOTHER FUCKER
the roto rooter guy is desperate….. if you worked for a company that
specializes in cleaning drains wouldn’t you try to spend as much time as
possible replacing heaters? Otherwise you might be playing in duke.
BUHAhahaahaha! No, I have never intentionally misdiagnosed a heater but
these plumbers are the ones that can’t get work anywhere else for the most
the guy who didnt charge should be hired by everyone!!!! we need more
people like this guy.. i would hire him if he was in my area
Fuck you doug.
Don’t let this happen to you. Find out more @plumberx.com
BUSTED!!!! Blame this on inexperience and no integrity . Fly by night
plumbers hurt our trade.
Are roto rooter hacks even licensed plumbers? Why would you call a drain
cleaning company to do HWT service?
My water heater seems to be leaking.
Please post the names of the sincere ones .. i will take my business to
um ya it will only cost you sex.
lol, The fat plumber wanted to bang the reporter…¿Free?…yeah right!
Ask the guy to see his plumbing license and make sure it is not an
apprentice license. We don’t work for free. We didn’t get into plumbing
for it to be a hobby.
Dateline did this bullshit.
507.44 is cheep lol
Gosh Who would have Thought that Roto Rooter would Rip Off People??
I’m startin’ to wonder about The Tooth Fairy Now
Beware of Large Plumbing and Electrical Service companies. Me I would
recommend you call a smaller Mom and Pope Service company or a company
recommend by a friend and family member. Commission bass plumbing or
Electrical service companies have changed. It’s all about the numbers now.
I feel sometimes Commission service companies may not be a good choice for
many customers out there. In many cases I feel it puts the service tech in
a position to overcharge or just rip off a customer to make money. This
could be like putting a gun in the wrong hands with a license to steal. I
feel you will find most of the service tech’s they send out are not even
licensed and may know less then you. The service tech that they may send
out to your home or business may have an Apprentice card which means
they’re just a beginner. When you do call for a plumber ask the company to
send out someone with Plumber or Electrician license. If you don’t they
will send anyone and most people wouldn’t know if they were licensed or not
because their train salesmen. And they will sell whatever you will fall
for. In my opinion. These companies aren’t looking to hire real plumbers,
they want Salesmen with plumbing or electrician license. Honest plumbers
and electrician find it really hard to survive in this type of business now
day’s because of the strong sale technic that these companies push and
quota they demand an honest Tech can’t make good money and don’t last long
on plumbing service jobs. This kind of practice really needs to stop. No
one has ever said anything until they’re the victim.
Past this around thank you very much
all wanna be plumbers,roro rooter sucks
Unfortunately, a lot of these guys are pushed, by the owners of the
plumbing company. To sell, sell, sell, or they lose their job, cause there
numbers are to low for the company to make a large profit. I’ve been in the
plumbing Business for over 20+ years and over 85% of plumbing companies,
I’ve worked for, constantly push to upsell, they even have monthly or even
weekly meetings on making the sale. More often then not the owner, looks at
the numbers and not the integrity of the company.
♪ Call Roto-Rooter – that’s the name
And away goes your money down the drain!
Up Yer Pooter! ♫
