Jimmy P from Atomic was excellent! Very friendly and knowledgeable. I normally complete all of our plumbing issues but the issue we had this last time was beyond his ability because I could not locate a 2nd access point to our sewer drain. Jimmy was able to probe with a camera and use a pressure bladder to both break the clog and locate the other access point for our next clog. Definitely not cheap because the charges are per task instead of per hour, but it was worth the money to know it would be done correctly.

I would highly recommend Atomic Plumbing. They were quick to respond to our leak and Jimmy was very professional, very informative, and took the time to explain different options on how to fix the leak. They helped us save time and money and were helpful! Great company to work with!

I have used Atomic a few times and have always had a great experience. Recently we had a pipe clog and had Atomic come out to fix it. James and Zach did a great job, explained everything along the way, and got my issue resolved. They are my “go to” plumbers I’ll call when I have any plumbing issues.

Atomic Plumbing came within hours of our call to replace a leaking water heater. The technician, Ryan, was professional, performed a thorough evaluation, proposed some options and reviewed pros and cons of each. He was efficient with his time and answered questions when asked. He instructed us regarding new equipment functioning. Also, he explained the warranty for all pertinent equipment. We found him to be pleasant to work with and a good representative of Atomic company values. We will call them again for future needs. The Fox Family

Great service, Justin responded diligently to the emergency call and had the job accomplished professionally. I would use their service again and I highly recommend them. Very professional, friendly technician, efficient and honest. Justin and Trey are awesome! Very friendly and helpful. Justin showed me somethings that could help me in the future. I will use them next time I need plumbing service. I would recommend to anybody in the area.

Although the customer service representatives at Atomic Plumbing stated that a variety of options would be presented during the initial interview, the choices for hot water heater replacement were limited. Only one manufacturer was discussed. Ryan D. is confident, experienced, and clean mechanic. He was timely for both the initial appointment and installation appointment. I believe that changing the elevation of the hot water heater was an unnecessary expense. The pipe runs and exterior vent on the siding of the house look very good and the hot water heater functions to expectations. Ryan D.'s temperature setting seems ideal. The receipt for services does not break down material, labor, permitting. I do like the 10 year warranty on material and labor although the copy of the warranty sent did not arrive. Ryan D. cleaned up after himself, communicated well, and addressed my concerns promptly. It was a quick turn around from phone call to estimate to installation, which is particularly notable since the installation was done on the Friday after Independence Day.UPDATE: Terrific customer service, not mentioned previously, is worth noting as Beverly contacted me about the above. An inspection is in the works. The city allows up to six months for the site survey. I removed the comment that was contrary to that policy. The operations manager has been contacted about the change to the placement of the heater. Beverly knows that the warranty paperwork and welcome letter had been sent. My wife recalls seeing it in the USPS app, but not in our mailbox. It is to be sent via email this week.

Today we woke up on Day 1 of a 3 day Holiday weekend to our main sewer line backed up. All the toilets and sinks were backing up; we were unable to use the water at all. Panic ensued... Then we called Atomic pluming and another company in the hopes that someone would call us back. Atomic plumbing immediately called us back and the appointment coordinator was friendly, professional and knowledgeable. She told us which technician would be arriving and an approximate time. Less than 30 minutes later we had Robert Rollings at our door. Robert fixed our problem and had us back up and running in less than an hour and 45 minutes from our initial phone call! He was extremely knowledgeable, courteous, and professional. Atomic Plumbing exceeded our expectation in every way. Shout out to Robert and scheduling coordinator for such a positive experience. We are now customers for life!

Tired of the big plumbing companies I’ve used in the past, I used Angie’s List to find a plumber after my toilet backed up. Within seconds of sending my request, I got multiple calls. Bill of Atomic Plumbing came through. Reasonably priced, pleasant, knowledgeable and able to come that evening without extra fees, Bill fixed the problem. I now have a local plumber who I will use again and again. Thanks very much, Bill!

Jimmy P serviced our toilet by changing out the entire flushing assembly and replacing our washing machine valves in our washroom. He was extremely knowledgeable and professional and had the job done within two and a half hours. I would highly recommend Atomic Plumbing and Jimmy P to anyone. Great job!

Jim M and Trey were very helpful in solving my issue. I originally had another plumber come out through my home warranty, but they did a terrible job and left my bathroom sinks destroyed. Jim & Trey first tried to fix the situation through my sinks, before having to go on my roof and clean the issue from the roof vent on my two story house. They solve the issue, left everything clean, and even fixed a slow drip on my sink at no extra charge. They communicated the process and the price every step of the way and were very professional.

I had a leak in my crawlspace due to issues with my waterline. Me. Duke was personable, professional, confident, and solution oriented as he assessed my issue and put together a quote for the repair. Ultimately the repair was well outside of my budget and I just paid for the diagnostic, but that didn't stop him from educating me on my water meter and providing suggestions for me to consider as I ponder my options for repair. I would highly recommend this licensed technician with four years of schooling and plenty of experience.

Drain backup in utility sink last night after hours. I knew exactly who to call after using Atomic Pluming and Sean D several years ago. It is interesting that although it was 4 years ago the service was so good that I remembered them. If anything the service was better this time if that was even possible. The communications from Atomic on the scheduling and heads up of when to expect the tech was excellent. Sean D is as good as technician in the plumbing field as you will find. Thank God for good plumbers and specifically Sean. Give him a bonus or a raise for sure. He is very knowledgeable and efficient on how to best do the job required and proposes several solutions. Lets you know how the job went. Right up front on the cost. He is enthusiastic about his work and craftmanship. My job was not inexpensive but I knew the job would be done right the first time and after the work has been completed I would say worth the expense. If you need a good plumber use Atomic and Sean, you will not find any better.

Atomic Plumbing received my call re urgency at 7:30AM and by 8:45 9:00AM, the super men of Plumbing-- Bryan and Darin--arrived with 2 trucks, and a new water heater! They jumped in to stop the immediate crisis, and proceeded with meticulous care to stop water damage, break down wall where needed, and removed water heater and replaced it. They wear paper booties, are careful with moving things, and the clean up went exceeded expectations. At their recommendation, used Water Damage Solutions who shifted their schedule and came to assess, and perform mold prevention as quickly as possible. I thank Bryan and Darin for an excellent recommendation to a company that was at our house by mid-morning. Atomic has my admiration and gratitude.

Atomic plumbing and drain cleaning is a very reliable and customer friendly company. I needed my garbage disposal replaced and they sent their technician of 26 years out to help. Randy was very knowledgeable and friendly!! He did a great job and left a lasting impression on my roommate's and I to definitely use this company ( and Randy upon request ) for our future plumbing needs! Thanks Atomic and Randy for your outstanding customer service and experience.

Terrific service! Not only did Ryan bail me - quite literally - out of a flooded bathroom on a Sunday, but he left the place looking spotless. Courteous, helpful, friendly, above all extremely skilled - a 5-star rating is the least I can give him! Atomic Plumbing is most highly recommended, and Ryan in particular. Excellent!

Justin and Eric Jr. were very professional and affable. They were on time, got right to work, and made sure to share with us quickly what the diagnosis was. Justin made sure to point out what they had done and how they mediated the problem. Justin and Eric Jr. also made sure to leave my home as they found it. Thanks for making sure we were happy with the job before leaving! Would absolutely ask for these wonderful and friendly techs again.

The last thing you want to see is your toilet backing up in the shower late at night. I went online to set up an appointment and got an immediate response. The whole process was great from the time I made the appointment to the 30 min alert for arrival. Justin was fantastic, really friendly, informative and professional. He explained everything before, during and after and got a really messy job done. I wasn't expecting to have my yard dug up and I was amazed that it didn't look like a mess when he was done. He even hosed off the sidewalk. I made the right call and I got a great tech and hopefully I won't have to worry about this problem for a very long time. Thanks Atomic and Thanks Justin

Extremely fast response and fix after having an unforeseen flood in the kitchen (1 hour arrival post broken pipe). Our technician, James, was professional and gave us all our options for the fix. He checked all our water sources (showers, toilets, faucets) to ensure that we didn't have a hidden leak anywhere in addition to the broke pipe. Hopefully we don't need Atomic Plumbing again for emergency service but if it should happen, we will 100% call them.

Absolutely AMAZING service! Justin D. came out to fix a pipe that was broken at the wall from contractors who were removing my countertops and sink. Other plumbers came out but were not prepared for the job and unable to perform the work needed. Unfortunately, to get to the broken pipe he had to cut away at the back of my cabinets and drywall. He told me it would be a “rough” cut but it needed to be done to fix it correctly. Well, he not only fixed the pipe beautifully, the “rough” cut was done perfectly and with precision. It literally looks better after he did all of the work. To top it off my house smells good from the cleaning he did afterwords. He cleaned and wiped out the bottom on my cabinets that now look 100 times better than before he got here. Thank you so much for coming out and saving the day for us! I recommend Justin D. 100%. I hope I don’t have any more plumbing issues but if I do, I know who to call!

Had a clogged toilet and several other items that needed attention 2 days prior to an open house. Called atomic plumbing and ryan D arrived within the hour. He explained everything thoroughly and provided a detailed cost of repairs. He was pleasant and courteous and made us feel at ease during his visit. He didn't pressure us to do work that was not necessary. Would highly recommend him in the future.

Thanks for a great job installing a tank-less hot water heater. Paul was well schooled selling and explaining what was needed and how long it would take. My interaction with Tiffany was punctual and professional. Sean and Tim did an excellent job running gas and water lines and installing the system. As a small business owner, I was impressed with employees who went out of their way to preserve the fine reputation of their employer.

Ryan D. explained to me what alternatives I had in order to repair a piping issue with my kitchen sink. He informed me of the pros and cons of each solution and when asked, told me his preference. I liked his conservative approach and the job was completed to my total satisfaction. I would guess that there are less expensive plumbers available, but you are going to get experienced and professional work with Atomic Plumbing.

Ryan D. and Scott P. with Atomic Plumbing are great techs! They were not only courteous, polite, helpful, but very knowledgeable of all aspects of winterizing the pipes under our crawl space. Our crawl space is very small and that didn't deter the guys from doing a fantastic job! We use Atomic Plumbing & Drain Cleaning for all of our plumbing needs and we highly recommend them! 🙂

I feel like I received great work at great price. I would recommend Atomic Plumbing for any of your residential plumbing needs.

Mr. Steinle of Atomic Plumbing made time late in the day to evaluate and provide an estimate. We had to shut water off to the house 2 days earlier. The Atomic Plumbing quote was significantly lower than I had received from a home improvement store’s subcontractor, and for a better capacity product. I called back very late in the day to accept Atomic Plumbing’s bid. Their plumber, Eric, and his assistant were here first thing the next morning. They were very hard working the entire day! I’m very impressed with Atomic Plumbing’s service, workmanship, and professionalism! I HIGHLY recommend Atomic Plumbing!

Chris Brogan

I’m extremely pleased with the professionalism of Atomic Plumbing from the initial phone call to completion of my water heater installation. My technician, Eric Toupin, was prompt, very knowledgeable about the product and its installation, and maintained the cleanliness of my home. Eric answered all my questions about the water heater and explained the operation of various components to include the Floodstop mechanism. He clearly enjoys his work. This was reflected in his excellent customer service. Eric and Atomic Plumbing are a real find I will not hesitate to refer to friends with plumbing needs.

I would like to say you have the best technicians for unstopping clogged drains. I have been in my home for 24 yrs. For those 24 yrs. I’ve had problems with my laundry room clogging and have to call a plumber every 3-4 months. Last year one of your tech came to my home on 10/2/10 to unclog my laundry room drain which causes my kitchen sink to clog. The drain was really bad. Since that date my laundry room have not clogged. This is the 1st time in 24 years; you hear what I’m saying. I have not called a plumber since your tech unclogged my drain. I am amazed… 1st time in 24yrs. Not once…have anyone come to my house to unclogged the same “drain”. I wish I would read his handwriting to tell you who it was but I can’t. You have the BEST, THE BEST SERVICE FOR UNCLOGGING SINKS, DRAINS. I will recommend you to anyone I know.

Dear Mr Steinle:
I was quite shocked to open my mail and find a check from your company for the invoice price for the replacement of my wags valve, which I am sure included labor costs. When I called and talked to your manager about it she said that you wanted to give it to me in a show of good will and felt the need as it was the water heater and wags valve that your company had replaced. I was still confused and told her that I did not understand as I was pretty sure you were not in your backyard making wags valves in your spare time. I also expressed to her that I did not believe that you were personally responsible because a part that you believed to be good at the time of it’s installation was bad did not negotiate the services and part that you provided for me. I understand how strongly you stand behind your service, and how much you wish for your customers to be satisfied, but you do not need to convince either my husband or myself. We are sold on your honorable, dependable service. When anyone asks me to recommend a plumber, I tell them the exact thing the was told to me by my insurance agent: “they are a little more expensive, BUT YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR,” and i still believe that wholeheartedly. I have never once been dissatisfied with any of your services. My husband and I talked about the wags valve and figured that is why you no longer carry them or that they do not make them anymore, but for the last six years it gave us peace of mind and when it did break, it did not flood, only stopped hot water. We both agreed that the new flood stop was a bargain for the peace of mind it would bring us.

I guess what I am trying to say in my long meandering way is that we have loved your companies service from day one. I have even called and asked who you would use for other types of contractors should you need them and been very happy with your suggestions. That is how much I value both your services and your good opinion. I would find it a crime that you would need to pay me to be satisfied with a service that I already highly recommend and cherish for the security that I know when I call your service people will fix it for me. Therefore, please find enclosed your check dated July 12, 2011 in the amount of $218.72. I hope you realize that you should not be held accountable for accidents, that is Murphy’s business, having the faith in a product that did last for six years after all, or that you need to pay this loyal customer for her satisfaction. It did however, go to show me that my respect and high regard for you was more than well deserved, but do not punish yourself for the accidents of life.

With my deepest respect for you and your business dealings,

Kelly Haggerty
