I am impressed by Cornelio’s professionalism, customer service and work ethics. He strives hard to meet customer expectations. I would hire Elite Rooter again next time when I have any plumbing projects.

David and Christian came over and they were excellent! They were super professional, and solved my issue so quickly. They communicated the issue really clearly. They were focused on resolving the issue vs trying to scope out a large repair project the way some do. I'll definitely be calling them up again in the future.

Details: No, repair is not urgent • No, the building is not currently flooded • Other plumbing system issue • Shower or bathtub • Townhouse

Elite Rooter was quick and easy. Came in, fixed the problem (think it was just a seal that needed to be replaced) and the toilet was good to go. Appreciate the quick, professional and obviously educated solution.

Elite Rooter came out same day, and very quickly diagnosed and fixed our problem. Pablo, the technician, was very clear in explaining what he was doing, how to avoid future problems, and future signs of trouble to look out for. He also gave us some tips in how to address problems like this ourself in the future. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend Elite Rooter!

It just seemed expensive for simply cutting off 2 water pipes and not giving a more long range solution. Following through with finding the cartridge to actually fix the H and C controls would be very helpful.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Elite Rooter charges by the job not the hour so our clients know the price before we start and there are no surprises afterwards. Please ask about coupons that we often have for our drain cleaning services. We always offer 15% discounts for our seniors, military and educators. Coupons/discounts cannot be combined.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We schedule same day appointments as needed or we can schedule at a time and date that works best for you. Once scheduled you will get a call from our technician when they are on their way to your home/business. Upon arrival the technician will diagnose the plumbing problem, communicate with you possible solutions and then if approved by you, the technician will start the work. We do not charge any trip fees and other hidden costs. All estimates are complimentary.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    Elite Rooter is a state licensed, full service, plumbing company. This means that we have to maintain industry standards to stay licensed. All of our technicians are experienced plumbers, with years of in the field knowledge and are certified. We believe in constant education and training. We have training sessions at our office 3 times a week where we discuss and train on all aspects of plumbing so we can provide a truly Elite experience to our clients.
