    We called Eric during an emergency. A Sunday evening and our sewer backed up so bad that the water was gushing out of the toilet hole in the floor. Literally gushing to where my bathroom had 2 inches off sewer water in it. Ran into the hallway and under the bathroom floor to the sub floor. Eric took our call, came over and did an inspection. Let us know what was going on and what he needed to get to fix it. He came back this morning and went down into the crawl space to access the sewer line. He found the clog and quickly cleared it out. He found a leak coming from our other bathroom tub and recommended repairing it as well as the area of piping where the clog took place as it will likely keep clogging. Eric won’t haggle you for money or offer you anything that isn’t needed. I 100% recommend Eric and this company. They know their stuff and you won’t break the bank either.
