"Had a backed up sink. Michael came to snake the drain for the advertised price of $69. After some inspection he "suggested" a hydro flush, which was explained as a high pressure cleaning of your home's pipes. It's used to flush out dirt, grease and debris from the pipes that accumulate over the years. When I asked how much, I was surprised by the price tag of $650. Having just spent $700 to have my home heater fixed, I quickly declined. I felt like there was a bait and switch, in a way. I declined the service and just had him snake the drain, which he did to my satisfaction. I can't afford to have the high pressure done at this time, but in one last effort to sell me the service he told me his supervisor would give me the Christmas Special of $450. I thought there was a little bit of high pressure sales to go along with the high pressure flush of the pipes. Again I declined. If I truly do need a flush of the pipes, I will do it on my own terms, where I can adequately shop around and get the best price. I've had plumbers in before and no one ever suggested the flush like he did."
