Reviews for Ron

I was so impressed with their service! Jordan was quick and thorough, and Peter came out to make sure everything was checked that needed to be. They were friendly and professional. The previous plumber we had look at it charged twice as much for a tenth of the time spent, and wasn't able to tell us anything. This company charged a very fair price and went way above and beyond. They also took the time to explain what they were doing, what they had found, and how to follow up- all in a way I could understand even though their field is far outside my scope. I will be wholeheartedly recommending their services!
Amazing service. Always looking out for the customer. Jeff G saved me some serious money. They only do what needs doing.... No frivolous service work. Best in the Cities.

Very punctual, excellent appointment system they use, same day service, friendly and knowledgeable technician, left no mess, clean work, no stalling or lagging so I feel what I was charged was inexpensive. I called 5 other places, none of which offered same day service, maybe I was lucky, maybe these guys are just that ton top of their game.Highly recommended!

Great service, totally professional, and very thorough. Our technician Jeff G. is the best! We've used the service several times over the years and I won't call anyone else for drain clean-out.

If I could give Jordan more stars I would. The job was bigger than we thought it was going to be, but Jordan figured out the issue and got right to it. He was very thorough and professional the whole way through. At no time did I feel as if I was being pressured to do more than was necessary, and each person we worked with was very knowledgable. The price was fair and the experience was a positive one. I highly recommend Ron the Sewer Rat!

Very pleased with the service. I had made an appointment online (the earliest they had available through the online scheduling), they called to offer me an appointment much sooner, which was great. The technician that did the work was thorough, and did a great job explaining everything to me. I'd use their services again.

Amazing customer service: fit me in immediately (via phone, but they have online scheduling); followed up with a confirmation; then sent me a photo of the tech on his way. Courteous, prompt, efficient. Loved the technology they use for customer service! Fixed the blocked drain in about 10 minutes.

Jon was great, he arrived early, removed his shoes in the house and kept everything clean. He also did a great job keeping me informed as the work progressed. I feel I made a very wise decision to use Ron The Sewer Rat. Thanks for a job well done.

Jeff and his trainee/partner were amazing. They came in, assessed the situation, and everything fixed in a timely manner. I have used Ron the Sewer Rat in the past and have had Jeff the technician out to my house before. I will continue to use them and recommend them to anyone looking for good reliable friendly service. Thanks for the great work guys!

They did a great job once again. Due to a lack of communication at home, we needed for them to come earlier than the end of the scheduled period, but they got here in time with no problem whatsoever and would have gladly rescheduled if needed. We always call them when we have slow drains or a backup. They're the best!

Jeff did great work, he always tells it like it is and provides an unbiased opinion of the condition of the sewer lateral. Are use Ron the sewer rat exclusively because they do not provide repair work. There is no conflict of interest when you get a sewer inspection done by Ron The Sewer Rat.

Ron's son Lee is a nice guy who does great work for reasonable prices. If he does an underground camera tour of your sewer system, stand by and watch--it's surprisingly fascinating! More interesting than many shows on cable.

Was my first time using them. Had heard great things about them and regularly referred them to folks in need for many years. A+ experience from start to finish. Got me in the next day. Had tree roots backing up my plumbing. Lee and team are the best, so honest and service driven. I will keep using them as needed. Honored and delighted to keep them in my service provider list. They are aces in my circle of trust deck!

I am SO HAPPY with my entire experience with Ron the Sewer Rat!!! Jeff was SO HELPFUL and friendly! He did a GREAT job! He explained the process to me and answered my questions. When I called to make an appointment, it was an easy process with a friendly person. They got me in the next day (I didn't request same-day service). I will call them every year to maintain my main line. Thank you to the whole Ron the Sewer Rat team! I will recommend you to others!

Trent was friendly, professional, knowledgeable, and clean. He made it a point to clean up and follow the scouting, "leave your campsite as neat or neater than when you arrived" rule. He worked hard and after finishing he took a moment to explain the process and shared a couple of sewer tips. I really appreciate how fast I was able to get help, within hours. Hopefully, I will never have another plugged sink, toilet, or tub, but if I do, I'll call Ron the Sewer Rat.

I got a notification that my technician, ROD, was on their way for my appointment time. He was on time and friendly! He showed me exactly what he was doing! Who knew you could take a scope of your pipes! He made recommendations of the next steps and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend ROD as the technician and Ron the Sewer Rat as the company to anyone looking for a sewer line inspection! GREAT JOB!

I can't say enough about how great this company is. There value, responsiveness, and level of service are all beyond compare.

Came highly recommended from multiple friends and I can see why. Rod was really friendly. He answered a bunch of questions I had and was honest about how often we needed to clean out our main line. He was not trying to oversell any services like some of the other folks in town. I only wish I had a company with this level of service for all the mechanical items in our house!

I am so thankful that my friend referred me to Ron the the Sewer Rat. My main line backed up and they were able to come immediately (and work with my schedule) to troubleshoot. The technician quickly figured out what the issue was and fully completed the work. The cost was also very, very affordable. I am pretty sure that I would have paid 40-50% more if I randomly selected a "big-name" plumber.

Jeff G was professional, friendly, and helpful. He cleaned out our main drain, which was heavily obstructed with tree roots. He offered tips for maintaining the drain and explained all of the work he was doing. This company is up front with their reasonable pricing and were able to complete the job in the estimated time frame. We were able to get a same-day appointment and Jeff arrived promptly. One thing I really appreciated is that they sent a picture and short bio of Jeff so I was reassured knowing who would be in my home. Thanks so much!

Really friendly, great tech came to do a basic main drain clean-out... I'm totally satisfied. Cost was $198.00. That was for a 1.5hr minimum job, so he basically polished the drain all the way to the city drain. Video was included.

Awesome....and I mean it. I had a rooted up main that had me not using water in my house for a couple of days. Unfortunately, I had tried a different company out of St. Paul first. The first company took two hours, went 35 feet in, claimed they were stuck, and either kept pushing me to overtime (after 5pm) hourly or wanted to up-sell me to jetting...On top of that they left a mess on my floor and wall and then had me waiting for two days and counting for that service. I got frustrated and called Ron the Sewer Rat and asked for a second opinion. They assured me that if it was just roots and not a broken/collapsed main, that they would be through it in less than an hour. They did not lie. Mike came and he had pushed/cut through 75 feet (well into the city's sewer) in about 15 minutes: so I don't know what the other guy's problem was. He backed it out, ran it again with a larger double auger, ran a camera down in it so I could see - and was cleaned up within an hour. My main now looks cleaner than my colon. All this while educating me in the process. He was so capable and efficient, I had him clean out a secondary drain line as well. Very much appreciated every part of my experience, and will not hesitate to recommend in the future. Well done.

I called Ron THE SEWER RAT and within hours They came and took care of my problem and did a fantastic job. They came with a great referal and they will do the job for you! I will never be at a loss for a good plumber again. They are really great, so trust your gut and give them a call. And they offer a resonance rate for the job. Plus, I love their company name.

Trent is awesome!! He is so nice & explains everything. I feel confident that all is well each time he comes out, which is more often than normal due to my son with disabilities flushing things that don’t belong. Even when they are super busy they squeeze me in. All the guys in the office are great too!

I am ecstatic with my experience with Ron the Sewer Rat company. They were able to send someone out to my house when it was convenient for me. Tim arrived on time. He quickly got to work and and my toilet is now flushing like it did when it was brand new! Tim was very neat and courteous and when he left there was no mess left behind. I will definitely use this company in the future. I will recommend them to friends and family members.

Kyle met me at the house we are looking at buying and was thorough and competent. He worked hard to find the place where he could inspect the sewer (not easy mind you!). He showed me the video and talked me through the details. Everyone at Ron the Sewer Rat was kind and accommodating. I hope I never need to call them, but if I do I am confident that they will be my go to folks!

Received same day emergency appointment for my main line. My technician, Rod went above and beyond with this assignment. The job ran him behind a bit and he remained calm. With that said, he was friendly, helpful and very professional. I very much appreciated his time and service. I would recommend Rod and "Ron the Sewer Rat" for your plumbing needs!

We needed some help with a couple drains in our home that were backing up. A friend told us about Ron the Sewer Rat so we gave them a try. Lee showed up on time and did a great job of gently snaking out our basement and kitchen drains. He took great care in the work he did and made sure to clean up when he was finished. Very satisfied.

Phoned the business Thursday evening, 8pm. Left a VM (not urgent), but asked for a schedule the next day. Received phone call not too long after, close to 9 maybe. Connected w/ gentlemen and scheduled a call for next day (thank you!), and Kyle W arrived on-time. Kyle W was awesome. Professional, clean, pleasant. He worked at a rapid pace, but took care. We ended up needing two floor drains cleaned, and an object removed from one. Took Kyle quite some time because of the obstruction, but he was patient, calm, resilient, and took care of business. Left things clean, and dotted his Is, crossed his Ts. Nice job and thank you!

Great service! I was able to schedule a next day appointment, and Kyle did an amazing job. He had to do extra work to locate and access the sewer stack, but was quick, professional, and super informative about the state of my pipes. He went further to make sure there were no residual problems in my floor drain as well. To top it off, their pricing is very fair. Highly recommend.

These guys are simply the best and most experienced. Our main drain was clogged. Through our energy company emergency cleaning plan, another company came out. Not only could the other company not fix the problem, they were fairly certain that our pipes were broken and would require a very long and expensive fix. Ron the Sewer Rat proved them wrong and fixed the problem in no time. I will never deviate from using this company again.
