A BIG THANKS goes out to Rich and Camille for having the confidence in us to tackle a sewer root problem.
Rich and Camille called the "Big Name rooter" company to unclog the pipe on a Friday night.
After a suspect attempt at clearing the roots, a so called "free" sewer scope tech arrived and promptly told them the sewer was broken and slapped down a contract for a $20000.00 repair.
No video evidence or report was offered....
Camille called us for a second opinion, and when we did our inspection, the pipe was found to be in good condition with normal root growth. No broken pipe, just roots.
The first tech faked the root cleaning, we confirmed this with our own inspection, just to get the sewer scope tech over there and panic the homeowners into a huge expense.
We were able to pinpoint the worst root intrusion and install a set of cleanouts, at a small fraction of the "Big Name Rooter" price.
You could say that Rich and Camille saved $17000.00 by calling us for a second opinion.
Remember the saying " there's no such thing as a free lunch"?
The same is true for sewer scope inspections.
Don't be a victim of these scams, always get a second opinion.
