Rodney Lawless is reasonable if you can get him to come out; does good work.

I agree with "how about", Rodney is the most reasonable - his service call is about half of the others, so is his labor. But he is very hard to get to come. He has told us several times he'd come, and never show up. But he is very busy, because he is so reasonable.
I've seen Johnny Chapin's truck in our neighborhood a lot, so he must be good, but can't recommend because I've never used him.

If you're using Chapin you better make sure you've got PLENTY of money! Very expensive!!! I too have used McNew and really like his work and feel he's pretty reasonable.

I've used most of the ones that have been mentioned. The only one I would NOT use again is Johnny Chapin.

I to have used all of the ones mentioned here, I would use Poe or McNew they both get $45 a hour, Chapin get $65 and Reeves don't know their ass from a hole in the ground. Poe and McNew have been around the longest.

Freddie Poe use to work for Johnny Lacks Plumbing way back in the coonages, when Johnny got shot and died Freddie took over and been doing ever since, Burl McNew went to work for Freddie shortly after johnny died, So these two have been doing it the longest around here that I can remember and I've been around since 1944.

Please tell me why you wouldn't use Mr. Chapin again, before I make my decision. Thanks.

well apparently the reeves must know their ass from a hole in the ground because they have been in business longer than some of these that you speak of ha ha

Keep in mind you get what you pay for. Just because their cheap doesn't mean their good.

Chapin charges way too much for his services. He's proud of what he does for a living and he proves it everytime he hands someone their bill!

Well, what do you think he should charge? How much would you charge for digging the shit out of your septic so you can flush your toilet instead of mopping up shit? I can guarantee you that I will pay his prices because i'm not doing it myself, and he is reliable, works anytime, and guarantees his work.

I have used Freddie Poe for everything from a garbage disposal to a water line for the fridge to commode problems. He has always been friendly and readily available. He has not overcharged at all either. Plus, he is just a nice man!

Rodney Lawless has done work at my home also. Always friendly and reasonably priced--sometimes, he's difficult to get on the phone or he may show up late inthe evening, but he does good work and he will not talk you into something that you don't need.

Tried to use Chapin one evening in an emergency but all I got was an estimate and a bill for that! Said he couldn't do anything about the hot water heater that late in the evening.(He could have shut it off from leaking water!) That was about 8 years ago. Don't know if anything is different now. Rodney came out and shut it off and said he would be back in the morning to finish the job.

FOr my money,(and my husband is very frugal) I would use Freddie or Rodney. Plus, you will probably get a good story to go along with wither gentleman!

Best wishes because there is nothing worse than plumbing problems!

Thats just to funny! Johnny don't work on septic tanks and/or lines. He's not going to get that dirty! Give him a call and ask him, he'll let you know real quick he don't work on them.

You think! Ask Scott Reeves he'll tell you who's been around longer and he won't say they have. Scott is a ok guy and I'm sorry to hear he's having trouble with his health but the rest of the family is a bunch of dumb ass's! They all draw crazy checks thats why when they do work for someone he ask for cash, so it doesn't show up and they won't lose the crazy check
