SolvIt Complaint - Price gouging- let the customer beware

Review by Cakey on 2006-01-21
CONNECTICUT -- The company charges $69 just for showing up. Any service is over and above the base fee. The replacement of a fill valve assembly found in the toilet tank, which costs at most $25, was an astounding $258! This seems an outrageous mark-up for a service that took @15 minutes. Are there any reputable, and reasonably priced plumbers left??

We have had ZERO luck with plumbers. Most charge that same "just to show up" fee. The ones that don't will get that money back when they give you an "updated" quote.

I've actually become quite a handyman on my own due to the number of crooked plumbers I've talked with. With the internet, you can pretty much teach yourself anything. Sure it takes a few hours (or days =) longer than a professional, but hey it is much cheaper, and you are learning something new.
