What Our Customers Are Saying

"We have used the Szolloses for a number of plumbing jobs over the last few years, including replacing a broken sump pump. On that occasion, we actually called them after having a different plumber out (Zoom plumbing) and unlike Zoom, they actually listened to me about what was happening and were able to identify an issue that Zoom had missed. They also went above and beyond to find a replacement pump (we needed an unusual type) without breaking the bank or replacing the whole pump system. More recently, we had a leaking pipe that needed to be repaired and they again did great work. They have always some to our house within 24 hours of calling and usually the problem is fixed within 24 hours as well. They work quickly and efficiently. Everyone there is very friendly and happy to talk to you and answer questions. I highly recommend them."
- Patricia, Lansdale

"They were professional and thorough. They cleaned up well after themselves."
- John G., Plymouth Meeting

"John came out & showed me how to light the pilot on my hot water heater - took the time to explain the mechanism so that I would troubleshoot it on my own in the future - and they didn't charge me for the service call!"
- Lynn, Philadelphia

"John M Szollose Plumbing & Heating came over to install a new hot water heater. There was a leak in our water heater. They came immediately after getting our call. The service was good and they did a great job."
- MJ, Philadelphia

"I got my pipes water jetted and a camera job with a dvd to view it myself, which is great because I can tell whether or not the plumber is telling me the truth. It turns out that throwing baby wipes down the toilet is not good even though they say 'flushable'. I wouldn't have found that out if it wasn't for the water jetting and camera work that john did for us. I had been worrying that maybe I might have to pay for replacing my sewer line. Honestly... I would rather pay $650 to get a look at the insides of my pipes and get it flushed out, then thousands to replace pipes that are just fine, which another plumber had told me I needed."
- Marcus, Philadelphia

"I (asked John) to propose an entire water service replacement job in case the old lead service to the main also needed to be replaced. The real miracle of this job was that John and his crew did virtually the entire job in one day -- and even given the weather (Winter Storm) it was not an easy job (for example there were lots of very large rocks underground in my front yard that needed to be contended with). ...He left my yard and house in good shape considering the amount of excavation required; he was even sensitive to the plantings in my front yard. ... All in all, I was very impressed with John's work on this somewhat unexpected, major plumbing repair/replacement undertaking."

"I called John at 6:45 on a Monday night and left a message with his answering service. He returned my call within 5 minutes, and was out at my house the next morning at 8:30. He worked quickly and professionally."
- Kathleen, Philadelphia

"John and his assistant were on time, pleasant and thorough. This plumber (John) had done major work in the house for the previous owners. Fixing the wobbly toilet was a minor job. Therefore, he took the time to explain the previous work completedand show me the major components of the plumbing and heating systems in the basement, and gave me some advice about maintenance, which was appreciated. Re the possible leak from the bathroom, identified several possible sources of the leak (not all plumbing-related) and recommended some things to do/take notice of that would be helpful in pinpointing the source."
- Grace, Philadelphia

"John Szollose does excellent, no-nonsense work. He is very responsive. the day that The City was scheduled to come out and tap into the main pipe in the street, John was out digging up the street by hand at 5:30 in the morning, by flashlight. His helpers were knowledgeable, friendly and polite. This is the third time he has been to my house, and the second time I have hired him to do repairs and I would not hesitate to call on him again."
- John A., Philadelphia

"Tub was leaking. They quickly helped us figure out why, then did the work on the drain at my request because I knew there was a problem there as well. This is actually the second time they've come to my house; the first time they found another leak, and told me the problem was my dishwasher. In other words these are trades people with integrity, who won't try to find ways to charge you money. That means a lot in terms of being able to trust them. I'll be calling on them for plumbing work from now on."
- David, Philadelphia

"Needed new pipes through out the house. The City said our pipes were not draining into main sewer line. John did a video inspectionand found that the pipe under the house broke. They came out a few days later and dug up the yard and installed pipes through out the house, a job well done."
- William, Philadelphia

"Outstanding. John answered the phone himself, said he was on another job and to give him about 45 minutes. He came over on time and wasn't fooling around. He had everything he needed to do the job and obviously knew what he was doing. I was amazed how fast he got it done."
