Do Not Call Drain King!

Called Drain King for a problem with my shower panel. I couldn't get the shower to turn off so I was desperate and had them come in. When I called I was told that if they came and gave me a quote and I didn't go ahead with the work the charge would be $90. This made me question how often they gave quotes that customers were not satisfied with, but I was desperate. The guy showed up and told me he had no idea how to fix a shower panel. Said it might be the cartridge, but had no idea where to find one, but if I found one he'd come back and replace it, but that I should probably just replace the whole panel and if I got a new one he'd come back and install it. I had clearly explained when I called that the problem was with a shower panel, so I am unclear why the company would send someone who started his assessment with "I don't know anything about shower panels" He gave me a quote to turn off the water at the shower. It needed to be done and I told him to go ahead. I had a couple other plumbing issues including a toilet fill valve that required replacing. The quote for replacing the fill valve was $304 for labour. At this point it was clear that along with not knowing what he was doing he was also going to to gouge me. I paid the $200 (the quote I was provided) to make the shower stop running and sent the guy on his way. I did some online youtube tutorials and figured out how to remove the old cartridge from my shower panel. I found the replacement on Amazon (under $30!) and replaced it. No new shower panel required! I did need a plumber for some other work and called in another company whose pricing was transparent and reasonable and they sent a knowledgeable plumber to complete the work. Do yourself a favour and DO NOT call Drain King. I will be following up this review with a glowing review for the other company.

Company Response

Hi Joan,

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to provide you with service.

We do provide free estimates during regular business hours so that our customers have the freedom to make a decision without having to pay a fee. Your request was outside of regular business hours and that's why you paid a fee for us to come out to provide an estimate.

If our estimates were over priced we would not be in business long providing them for free to our customers. Rest assured we had your best interest in mind.

Your technician would have advised you that because there was no way to tell what shower panel you had - that the time and materials to find and source the parts with no actual guarantee it would solve the problem would not be ideal. He recommended replacing the panel because the time and money put into sourcing and installing the part with no guarantee can often end up being more expensive than replacing the panel altogether. Your technician wanted to provide you with a guaranteed solution as to not waste your time and money on some thing that was not a guaranteed fix.

We feel your comments and review are a little bit harsh considering we did have your best interest in mind. At the end of the day we are happy your problem was solved.

We hope you understand and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Toilet installation (2 toilets)

The work was done to my satisfaction at the time and cost we agreed on. It wasn't a straightforward installation and Tyler had to do a couple of small repairs before. He explained exactly what he was doing and I'm very happy with the work he did.

Toilet Leak, Kitchen Sink Water Pressure, Shut off Valves

Have used their services 2x this month and have been very happy - they have been very quick at responding to my request and sending a technician over - next day.
The technicians were able to identify the problem quickly and provided several options to complete the job. All were professional and kind and willing to provide answers to all my questions.
Thank you!

We had a severe blockage

We had a severe blockage from the kitchen drain to the main. Michael worked tirelessly to unclog it. Wasn’t satisfied with the results and went at it again without hesitation until he got it unclogged as much as possible. Snake, hydro, camera, snake, hydro, camera. Last viewing with the camera was MUCH better and I was completely satisfied.
I Wouldn’t hesitate to call Drain-king again, but I’d have to insist on Michael. His honesty and professionalism was second to none.
Thanks again Michael. You ARE A GREAT GUY

Toilet Tightening and Shower Head Installation (2 Shower Heads)

Our plumbing and drain technician was Alex I., and we're very happy with his service. He quickly and skillfully completed all of our requests and patiently explained available services, which we found very helpful as first-time homeowners. We also appreciated that he took the time to make sure payment went through to avoid issues later on.

We would definitely recommend Drain King Plumbers!

Good work

Samad did a good job extending the existing pipes with a new exterior faucet for my yard. He did check everything carefully which seems reliable.
The request was completed within half a day which was incredibly fast. I would love to recommend this plumber.

Leaking Pipes

I'm very happy with the service provided by Drain King Plumbers. Samad, the technician, arrived on time and was very friendly and good to work with. He was courteous, even wearing blue booties over his work boots when entering my house. He gave us a good quote and was able to fix the plumbing problem right on the spot. The job was quick and efficient. I would definitely recommend Drain King Plumbers and will call them again!

Installed drain for sink and faucet

Work was great! Price was way too high for the work. We were quoted after 500-600. We feel very ripped off. Supplies were all there except for the piping. Would give 10 stars if we had more $ left in our pockets!

Faucet Installation

I would definitely recommend Drain King for future plumbing needs. Not only was my initial request responded to immediately, Jonathan was at our house 1-hour later. I received a text message that allowed me to track his ETA. This was the first time I received a text message that included a picture of the technician. This is a great safety measure for anyone who may feel uncomfortable allowing service people into their home. The original request to install 2 faucets turned into a bigger job as our main water shut-off valve failed. This resulted in having to call the city to come and shut our water on/off. Jonathan walked us through the process and returned the 2nd day to complete the job. He worked as quickly as possible to ensure that we were without water for as short a period of time as possible. Jonathan was very professional and respectful.
