Wait a Minute…that Doesn’t Sound Right!

Plumbing scams, they just keep on coming.  By now, you would think with all the horror stories and instances being reported on the internet that the scammers would have gone away.  Because fraudsters target the people least likely to suspect them, like the elderly and the infirm, they keep running the same old shakedowns.

Here are some things you should know –

1.  Some plumbing contractors will offer you leftover materials from their last job
2.  They randomly discover major issues that you never noted
3.  They want full payment up front…IN CASH ONLY
4.  Excuses…no license to show, improper tools, etc.

Don’t fall for plumbing and other related scams!  When you hire Tom’s Plumbing Inc. to do a job in the Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland you know that you are trusting the best every time.  Ask the questions and they will give you honest answers.  Contact Elgin based Tom’s Plumbing Inc. anytime at (847) 697-6444.

Spring Time…Sump Pump Time.

Spring flowers…spring showers.  Inevitably the two are intertwined.  You can’t have one without the other.  As spring approaches the rains will come, the snow will melt and sump pumps will become one of the most important appliances in your home.  Make sure that you are prepared for the worst!

What about a sump pump that runs continuously?  It does not take an Einstein to realize that if a sump pump never shuts off it will wear out more quickly.  Fixing one that does so is critical so that when it is needed it will perform at peak efficiency.  Plus, how old is your current sump pump?  Their life expectancy is about ten years.

For any sump pump repair or replacement in Chicagoland’s Northwest Suburbs homeowners have come to rely on Tom’s Plumbing Inc. over the decades.  Headquartered in Elgin, the sump pump and plumbing team at Tom’s is always a phone call away be it an emergency or not.  Give them a call at (847) 697-6444.
