Drain clog clearing

Had a slow draining laundry/kitchen sink line, which has been a bit of a recurring issue over the years, and beyond my limited fix-it skills. Submitted a request just before 9:00 am, got a call back very shortly after. Geoff came by later that morning. Super nice guy. He explained the choice between snaking or snaking plus hydro jetting. I chose the latter, which had not been mentioned or offered by previous plumbers. Not a big project or anything, but it was over pretty quickly and Geoff cleaned up very well. He also secured/glued a vent at no cost. I have no idea if other companies charge a similar price for the jetting but I assume there is no significant difference for this kind of job.

Faucet leaking under sink

Great service from beginning to end. We called to book the service appointment - very efficient, friendly, and we were able to get service within a couple hours. When plumber arrived, he had to diagnose a leakage problem, which turned out to be coming from a faucet leaking into the cupboard under the sink. Plumber supplied and installed a new faucet. He worked efficiently and explained everything. While here, he was also able to answer a couple other plumbing-related questions and fixed one in a minute! We were very happy with the service - all done efficiently and politely. We highly recommend John The Plumber!

Plumbing for two toilets and remounting my undermounted sink.

Both toilets would continue to run after flushing. My kitchen sink which was under counter mounted, fell down into the drawer below. While taking things apart, a couple of other problems were noticed. Alex and Conner were cheerful and efficient, explained what needed to be done and did it. They cleaned up after themselves and made sure I understood the follow up for finishing the sink project. Thank you.

Built-in tub leak

We had a great concern for a large built-in ensuite tub that was dripping in use down to the floor below. We worried that the tub would have to be removed at great expense. But your staff immediately diagnosed the problem (tub faucets), had the repair kits in their truck, and quickly took care of it. Tested it too, both for fill and drain, with no drips anymore. They are highly professional and fixed it all very quickly. Thank you so much.

Faucet cassette replacement

Cold-called the number found on Google and was overwhelmed to have a plumber in my home within an hour and a half. The entire work order took 30 minutes. Krista was an amazing customer service rep and Thomas was an amazing plumber. All the stars!
NB: cost borne by another; unknown actual total

Toilet Flush Valve

I had a toilet that was not flushing and running water all the time. I called John the Plumber and the next day Geoff showed up and provided excellent customer service. He knew exactly what the problem was and was very knowledgeable about American Standard toilets. He also was friendly and guessed what I did for a living!

Clogged drain pipe

Pipe draining kitchen sink was badly clogged from sink all the way out to sewer. Geoff and Garret carefully explained the work they felt was needed, with which we agreed. They snaked and jetted the pipe and restored flow. They also supplied and installed a new kitchen faucet and installed shut-off valves. Their work was carried out efficiently and in a very friendly manner. Would recommend to others.

Two clogged drains and a tap replacement

We had two fully clogged upstairs drains and a leaky kitchen tap. Dawson and Alex arrived on time and very quickly moved to fix the issues. They were very professional and knowledgeable. Instead of fixing an old leaky tap, Dawson suggested that replacing it would be more productive and future proof, with only a slight increase in the overall cost. Dawson and Alex then worked very quickly to get the job done. Throughout, Dawson and Alex were relaxed, courteous and friendly.
