Hault!! Dont use them they over bill!! – I called them up because we had a stopped drain in the tub I had told them that they need insurance to work in our building and they said they would take care of it. They show up with out the insurance and then blame me for them not having insurance. They come back a few days later with the insurance fix the problem then the next day the tub is not working again. I then get a bill for the time they spent the 1st time for 2 hours that they came out and did not have the insuance. I said i would not pay for that but i would pay for the time when they did work nowthey are taking me court to handle this. Waste of time dont use them go somewhere else. ..
GREAT plumbing experience!! – Let me start off by saying that I had the most pleasant experience with Sanitary Plumbing!!
I was having some major plumbing problems in my apartment and my Super told me to call Sanitary Plumbing. Obviously the first thing I did was google them for reviews and was nervous after reading some stuff on here! I went straight back to my Super and told him that I did not feel comfortable using them. He told me to trust him and that he'd been working with Sanitary Plumbing for over 20 years. Reluctantly, I said ok and gave them a call. Right off the bat they made me feel more at ease! The dispatcher was very patient and listened to me.
The plumber that came the next morning was ON TIME and he went straight to work on my toilet and shower. He was quick, thorough and my bathroom floor was wiped clean! More importantly, it's been 3 months and my toilet works great and my shower is still hot (what a luxury :)). A completely reasonable bill came in the mail about a week later.
I'm honestly shocked that these other reviewers had such negative experiences with Sanitary Plumbing. I'm so happy that I trusted my Super and called Sanitary Plumbing. They went above and beyond and I would HIGHLY recommend them to my friends and family and to my fellow citysearchers :)
Don't use these guys! – Unbelievable and Unprofessional. After having them check into a plumbing situation that just needed a minor cosmetic adjustment Sanitary Plumbing and Heating created a leak in the fixture without repairing it and then proceeded to bill for their tampering and like another review on "citysearch", theatened a lien. Is this for real and how does this happen? Luckily I haven't even begun to spead the word on these guys. Where I come from word would have traveled so fast they would have long been out of business!!
When doing work in NYC, get multiple positive referrals, don't use these guys!!
Disastrous Plumbing Situaton – I completed major renovation of an upper-east-side co-op. My general contractor chose the subs, as is customary. In this situation, the plumber was Sanitary Plumbing & Heating. It has been nothing short of a disaster. We have had major leaks into the apartment below, which has cost me money and made me look terrible to my neighbors in the building. To add insult to injury, Sanitary is SUING ME for over $2,000 because they claim my contractor failed to pay them in full. Fortunately for me, they are so incompetent they failed to get a mechanics lien on the property.
I would just pay it to avoid the hassle of going to court, but I am so incensed by their behavior that i am going to leave work early to defend myself. To sum up: Terrible plumbing, completely unethical and outrageous chutzpah. I guess the only good thing I can say is that they showed up.
Editorial Review – Plumbing and heating experts handle maintenance for both residential and commercial clients.
Quick, Reliable, Reasonable! – I was recently referred to Sanitary Plumbing by a friend when I needed a plumber to help with installing my new kitchen. I recently went to Home Depot and bought a whole new kitchen. I have friends who are contractors, so they gutted the existing kitchen and put all the new stuff in. However, when it came to redoing the pipes and all that, that wasn't there expertise, so I called Sanitary. They were extremely helpful. They showed up when they said they would, none of that I will be there on Thursday between 9am-5pm. The ygave me a day and a time, and were there. They explained everything to me step by step, which I appreciated because I am not the most knowledgeable person in the world when it comes to plumbing. They did their thing, cleaned up after themselves which in the past I have heard has been a problem for some other companies and they didnt break the bank. If you are looking for an honest, reputable company, call Sanitary, they won't screw you!
