Aaron N. avatar"I had an awesome experience with Bob Oates Sewer & Rooter! Sam and Christian came by my condo to provide a free estimate for my leaky faucet, which was at least $100 cheaper than what a competitor quoted me at. They proceeded to fix my issue, assist with an additional toilet issue I had, and gave me advice on a third dishwasher issue. I highly recommend this plumbing company!"
