"Jim the Irish Plumber" is absolutely horrible. Overly opinionated, racist, and does not show up when he says he will or bother to call you. Bitter old-man with a bad attitude – don’t even try to get the last word with this man, because you’ll be wasting your breath. HIRE A QUALIFIED PROFESSIONAL – NOT JIM…

Jim the plumber is a very professional plumber.
Don't listen to B-AI. He's been doing his job longer than most, he knows his shit.

I'm not ashamed to put my name here. I met Jim the Irish Plumber when I worked at a local restaurant. He is opinionated -- I loved to talk to him then and still do. I've never heard him say anything racist. He does not tolerate fools gladly, though.

Jim came to our house for a job we had been quoted $3,000 for. He did the job for $600 and told us how to do and save money on the cosmetic work.

Another time, we called him with a problem with our hot water heater. He told us what to do and didn't charge a dime.

Since then, we have recommended him. Every one I know that has used him has been more than satisfied. He is definitely from another generation -- he's not a franchise, and he doesn't have a huge yellow pages ad -- but he charges less than the Rooter guys and does more.

One more thing: the reason he may have trouble showing up is that Jim the Irish Plumber is in demand. His schedule has to accommodate emergencies, and he doesn't have a thousand subcontractors to send out like the franchises.

Anyway, a thousand stars to Jim the Irish Plumber!

I cannot believe that someone could write such a hateful review. This guy is the most honest and knowledgeable plumber I have ever dealt with.

5 stars to Jim The Irish Plumber.
My husband was away deer hunting for a week. Jim came out and snaked all my pipes. Everything is working perfect now. I plan on haveing him come out at least once a year just to keep things running tip top.

I have used this guy seven or eight times in Livonia. He knows what he is doing and gets the job done fast and right. He is very reasonable and honest. His son is a plumber as well and takes some of Jimmie's calls. He is just as good. This yahoo who called him a racist probably never had work done by him.

Bet your husband will stay home next deer season and snake your pipes out rather than leave it to a stranger.
Good one. I have to wonder if you are a product of a plumber's pipe snaking job.

I COMPLETELY AGREE. SAID HE WOULD BE HERE AT 11AM, STILL NOT HERE AT NOON SO I CALLED HIM AND HE SAID THAT HE WAS EATIING BREAKFAST AND THAT PEOPLE LIKE TO EAT BREAKFAST, AND THAT MAYBE HE WOULD BE THERE IN AN HOUR. THEN HE HAD NO CLUE WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO DO AND ASKED ME FOR MY ADDRESS A HUNDRED TIMES. HE WAS RUDE AND VERY, VERY UNPROFESSIONAL. NO WONDER HE GIVES CHEAP ESTIMATES, HE IS HORRIBLE TO DEAL WITH AND A TERRIBLE BUSINESS MAN. LOOK AROUND AND HIRE A REAL PROFESSIONAL. THIS GUY IS A JOKE AND A MORON.

Jim the Plumber is A-OK in my book. He knows his stuff, and you'll be hard-pressed to find anyone who does a better job.

I've had him out to my house a number of times for various reasons, and he's the first person I call when I need some plumbing done. Don't listen to the whiny crybabies. This is the guy you want.

If a fireman's business can go up in smoke and a plumber's business can go down the drain, can a hooker be laid off?

Thanks for the review Karen.
A good plumber is hard to find these days.
I look forward to having Jim out soon to inspect my system.
Thanks again sweetie.

Yes, a good man is hard to find.

When Jim gets done I always give him a pint on his way out. That's the key. Wait until the work is done.

My friend signed up for one of those 'learn to be a plumber in 6 weeks' courses you see in the papers. His final exam was at 9am yesterday.
He turned up at 3pm, looked at the exam paper and said, "Looks like I am going to need a pen for this job - I will have to pop round to my suppliers for one. Be right back."
He came top of his class.

I expected Jim would like a good Irish joke so I said, "Jim, I've got a really funny Irish joke"
Jim stopped me and said, "Be careful, I'm Irish."
So I replied, "Don't worry, I will tell it slowly"
