Len The Plumber - Water heater installation
Feb 17th Len the Plumber replaced my water heater. I had already shut off the gas, water and drained the unit. They told me they'd give me a discount for doing that but subsequently discovered they never did. I called their office but was never able to get in touch with anyone - all I ever got was a voice mail. I paid $3,300 for a water heater replacement, which is $1,000 over the norm for this area. I requested an itemized receipt and never got one. I do not recommend this company!
Desired outcome: I want a detailed receipt and a refund on some of the labor costs.
Len The Plumber - Refusal of service
I called Len the Plumber for several different plumbing needs. The person who answered the phone seemed very nice (I later found out it was the office supervisor). Everything seemed fine until I asked that the plumber wear a mask as there is an elderly person in the house who has some existing health conditions and hasn't been able to receive the COVID vaccine because of a reaction. At that point, I was told they would not come because of the "risk" and "liability". When I assured her that the person would be in a completely different part of the house, and we would be doing a thorough sanitizing after the plumber left, her response was the same. Gee Len, you run a great business when it serves your needs! I will make sure that I spread the word about Len the Plumber not working where elderly people are involved.
Len The Plumber - Refusal of service
Contacted Len the Plumber to have several plumbing issues addressed at my residence. When I asked if the plumber answering the call would be wearing a mask due to an elderly family member who isn't in the best of health (but in no way contagious), I was told they wouldn't perform any service at the residence. (I guess in their eyes only residences where all the occupants are young and in perfect health are worth responding to!)
Desired outcome: Revisit your policies
Len The Plumber - Toilet installation
Weeks ago, I had a tech come out from Len the Plumber to look at two toilets that were constantly running. The tech mentioned that since the toilets were old and there were no replacement parts, he suggested purchasing new ones. I agreed to the price for two toilets and he started the installation. When removing the first toilet, he did not empty the water and lost hold of the toilet when bringing it down the stairs. The toilet toppled down the stairs, scratched my hardwood floor and water ran into the living room (he did not empty the tank). When he left, I was told I received all the discounts I could so he couldn't take any money off due to what occurred. I emailed the local provider about what happened and received no response.
Desired outcome: I feel it is important for them to acknowledge what happened and offer some apology and even a further discount on the total price of $1300.00.
Our kitchen faucet broke Friday afternoon, January 8, 2022. The floor under the sink flooded. I made a temporary fix on the faucet to control the leaking and began cleaning dishes in a bathroom sink. We called Len the Plumber. Understandably, they said they couldn't visit until Saturday, January 9. They said they'd be at our house between 8 and 11 AM. But...Read full review of Len The Plumber

I told them my toilet...Read full review of Len The Plumber
Len The Plumber - Drain cleaning
My basement backed up and I called Len the Plumber. They came out and spent 4 hours in my home. The tech tracked dirt all throughout my basement. He did not provide me with any written documentation. He kept changing the story as to what was going on. He cut 2 pipes. attempted to snake from 3 different pipes removed my toilet and the issue is still not resolved. He kept charging me for every 30 min. He had to come back the next day because he machine broke only to finally leave saying its the cities issue. They had the nerve to charge me $900 saying they never guaranteed they could fix the issue
We were gouged $803 to clear a shower drain and install a new sink stopper. It took about 30 minutes total reflecting a $1600/hour rate. This was an outrageous cost! Shame on Len The Plumber for requiring their plumbers to upsell and overcharge. The plumber also offered to tighten a kitchen sink faucet assembly for "free." During the process he told my wife...Read full review of Len The Plumber
Len The Plumber - Service refused because of an outrageous estimate
I am a homeowner in Chester County, PA, and recently requested service for fixing a small water leak from the garden hose connector bib. But I refused to get service because of Len The plumber company's estimate of $1300 for fixing a garden hose bib leak.? I also wanted to replace a faucet in the bathroom sink with a new faucet already purchased. I was given a labor estimate for $400 for the faucet replacement. Both of the jobs were accomplished by a local plumber for $200 and $150 respectively.
I only want to submit this to show this company's management of how outrageous estimates are being used for unassuming victims. My advise for this company is to stop advertising heavily and start charging normal legitimate charges. This is just an awareness note for others.
On Tuesday I placed a call and then the plumber. I was experiencing a leak and was unable to determine where was coming from. The bathroom in which the leak appeared to be occurring had been worked on about a year or so so I was surprised when the plumber indicated that I needed was a new wax ring. He put in the wax ring at a cost of about $600 and I...Read full review of Len The Plumber

We have had to pay another plumber to come in and fix some the mistakes made by Len the Plumber. At first we were using our plumber to fix some of the use because we thought it will be one...Read full review of Len The Plumber
I am so disappointed and frustrated with the service today. The plumber just left. $450 later and my issue isn't resolved. He didn't attempt anything less invasive or expensive before clearing the main line which did not need to be cleared. He went on to tell me that he would need to try the auger in the toilet and that would be an additional amount, which...Read full review of Len The Plumber
Len The Plumber - range installation
I called to have a gas oven installed. They would not give me a quote over the phone. Today the service man installed. He was here a little over 1/2 hour, Installed the gas line, plugged in the electric outlet and tested the burners. For this I was charged $384. I am 82 living on social security. I feel I was price gouged and was taken advantage of as a senior citizen. This is an account of severe overcharging. I feel I should receive some sort of rebate.
We had our sump pump replaced by these guys. They couldn't reconnect it to the sewer line do to code which I understand. So their solution run the line out the front of the house above ground next to my front door and into my rain garden which is now a pond. Also the pump vibrates so loudly it can be heard on the second floor. My wife fought with the tech...Read full review of Len The Plumber
A little over a month ago my father in law had contacted Len The Plumber to come to his home to replace a 55 year old toilet. The plumber told him it would cost over 1700.00 to put in a new toilet. Just a toilet nothing else. So for 681.00 he replaced the interiors of the old toilet. I knew immediately that he was over charged. So I contacted 3 other...Read full review of Len The Plumber
ALERT!!! Jan 3, 2017. Poor quality service, over price and poor customer service. Recently, I contacted Len the Plumber due to a leaky faucet at my kitchen sink. I called to get a quote for faucet replacement and they just inform me that they will provide the pricing at the time of the visit. Since I was busy at work I told my husband to work with the...Read full review of Len The Plumber
Back in September, Len the Plumber sent out a kid to clear my main line. So called kid plumber was cocky and didn't clear the line.

He dragged the machine upstairs and downstairs throughout my...Read full review of Len The Plumber
