I called Gillece about a clogged tub. The "technician" arrived fairly quickly and did an inspection of the access area to the tub, which is a rectangular opening cut in the wall behind the faucet and water valves. He shined his flashlight on the trap and told me immediately that the trap would have to be replaced, and even if he removed the cap on the trap, it would be impossible to get a snake through to remove the clog. After consulting a couple of pricing manuals, he informed me that it would cost $1500 to replace the trap. I told him, "thanks for coming" and escorted him to the door. I called a "regular plumber", who arrived in a couple of hours. It took him about 20 minutes to get the cap off the trap because it was so old, but five minutes later he had the clog cleared with an electric snake. Leave it to "Joe the Plumber" to do the "impossible." Cost me $205.00 on a weekend.
The people at Gillece should be put in jail. I don't know how they sleep at night.
