ARS is a scam. Let me start by saying that asking for 50$ up front even if you dont work is a scam...you can give a 2 mil dollar bill and just go from house to house all day long collecting 50 bucks. (which is not far off from what happened to me) This is YOUR business YOU need to go out to people houses if you want to be in the plumbing business.. sometimes you can do business and sometimes you cant. How dare you make me pay for the ride over here. every plumber needs to go somewhere.
I needed to take my bathtub faucet off and put a new one on. I took the face plate off and tried to loosen the faucet from behind the faceplate. It felt really tight so i called a plumber to come help me. they shined a flashlight behind the faceplate and said there are threads. then without even trying to loosen it he said we can get your shower working again. he proceeded outside to his truck with his accomplice, did some talking with each other, wrote something down on an invoice then headed back inside to talk to me. he handed me an estimate for over $2,000 dollars!! I said look guys i just want you to unscrew my faucet. they told me its so old they did not want to risk breaking anything. I grudgingly gave them 50 bucks and told them to be on their way.
The next day I called a different plumber and when he got there he said and i quote "This faucet is made to be unscrewed without removing the faceplate. it was so simple he almost removed it without any tools. Now granted iam not a plumber i dont know anything about plumbing and it cost me 100 bucks to learn how to unscrew a faucet. But that is exactly why i called a plumber. These guys dident even know how the faucet worked and if they did know then they were purposely trying to scam me out of $2,000 dollars. Either way its not a business i ever want in my home again. Iam writing this hopefully to keep someone else from getting "ARS'ed".
