Replaced outdoor faucet

From a quality standpoint, Phil did a great job. In addition, the job cost was much more reasonable than other contractors who quoted minimum hour pricing. Phil’s fridge magnet is now on my fridge and I will not hesitate to call him for my future plumbing needs.

Kitchen Renovation plumbing and other things

Phil from Flash Drains to my rescue. Literally. Contractor for Ikea kitchen didn't like current plumbing. No kitchen install! Called Phil of Flash Drains. Came immediately and corrected the under sink problem, and plumbed in the Sink, Dishwasher, and garbage disposal. Toilet was loose on the floor and reinstalled toilet, and fixed a potentially terrible problem. Honestly, now I wouldn't call anyone else!! While he was here, he reminded me that he did my City Back Flow drain in the basement about 8 years ago! His card is now permanently magnetized to my refrigerator! Happy to give this recommendation.

Kitchen sink fix

I was very happy with the service I received from Flash Drains.
He fit me into his schedule as I had an urgent situation. He was prompt and efficient and gave me tips on how to keep my drains clear and clean for the future. Flash Drains will now be the plumber I call whenever I need plumbing services and I will be referring this company whenever I can.

Home Renovation

Flash Drains was a referral from a very good friend, who was quite satisfied with the work done, and the compensation required. Phil was there when he said he would be, and finished the job within the time frame quoted. He did all new kitchen and bathroom plumbing, involving moving the existing and replacing all up to code. The dishwasher was hooked up by him as well. He has made a point of calling a month later to follow up on his work. That I felt was a really great touch. I would, and have on many occasions referred him to others.

Water Closet Re-Build

Dear Phill:

I wish to take this opportunity to thank you for the excellent work that your company Flash Drains performed for The Muskoka Rose Guest House & Retreat this past summer. This remodel of our entire water closet was very important for The Muskoka Rose; Flash Drains overall performance validated our decision to bring you on board as our plumber. During the process, your management and supervision were exceptional. The job safety, quality of craft, fair pricing to our requested changes and additions, and overall attention to detail and followup were superb.

Your commitment to the project ensured that all aspects of the job were well managed and coordinated. You proved to be very responsive to any issues that arose during the project and addressed them promptly. 

Having you as our plumber who was genuinely invested in the project and care about its success is always highly valued. We look forward to the opportunity to have work on any future plumbing projects we may require. 

Sincerely,

David Rose

Amazing fast reliable service. Would refer Phil for any job! Fixed my dishwasher and shower was very reasonable

Phil gets any job done big or small and very reasonable and reliable. Dishwasher works like a dream after a rodent came in and chewed the hoses and wires. Shower was not hooked up properly in the house I purchased 2 years ago and managed to figure it all out and get me fixed up again in now time

Drain snaking and video inspection

Flash drains is a company that knows their business. I most recently used Flash Drains (Phil) about a year ago when I had a serious clog in one of my bathrooms. I had tried snaking it out myself several times, but could not clear it. I called Phil who I had used a couple of times previously for drain issues in my rental properties.

Flash Drains promptly attended my house and cleared the drain. He then inspected it with a video camera and it turned out I had a broken pipe with tree roots growing inside. Thank you Phil for clearing the drain and giving me the video which showed exactly where my problem was.

Phil is the kind of owner operator that explains in great detail the problem you have and what the best solution is. He is patient and takes the time to work with the customer. I found his prices are very reasonable compared to the chain companies out there. Thank you Phil.
