It so hard to find good help. We almost got screwed by Any Hour.

Posted By: mokus

We had some clogged drains we needed cleared. Once he took care of that he sent a camera down the pipe and showed my wife some water. Said the pipe was "bellying" and that it was going to break in time causing that drain under my driveway to be useless. They said this important job was probably going to cost about $15k and they had a credit line company they worked with in case we needed it.

We called another company we had a family connection with. They came out and said there was some water but it was just regular pooling. When we said the first quote was from Any Hour he said he was hired there and went off saying the training for Any Hour is a week of troubleshooting, then the second week is sales. They wanted their plumbers to find any small problem and turn it into an immediate need for a complete teardown and rebuild. He walked out of the training after arguing with the trainer about how their business practices were immoral. That was four years ago and that drive way is still in one piece. My wife lost sleep over this decision, but at least we aren't making monthly payments on that conjob.

Rocker Ute icon NEW: Yes, same company two different people, same experience - so I'm just saying I doubt it is just one guy within the company. I didn't see it before, but your link to Yelp just confirms that too.

480ute icon NEW: Nuttin' for nuttin', but a quick look at their Yelp page probably would have saved you the hassle. 1 1/2 stars with 80 reviews is a pretty big red flag.

Rocker Ute icon NEW: Just FYI, if you are really worried about it and live in SLC, you can get really affordable insurance for that where they'll repair it if the pipe does break.
