They are downright liars. Their come on is an advertised cheap price to lure you in and then he tells you he can't fix the drain because of a broken pipe underneath your basement floor and they will have to dig it up for bookoo bucks! I was smart and got a 2nd opinion and there turned out to be nothing wrong with my pipe/sewer line at all!! When I confronted him to ask for my money back he gave me the run around and then threatened my life saying: "You don't want to mess with me lady, I will bury you, litterally." This company should not be allowed to further operate business.

Still holding a bad check from February for a job they over-charged us for. They haven't finished the work they over-charged for. This company should not be allowed to stay in business.

Empire Pluming sewer and Drain cleaning, LLC and Empire Plumbing Water proofing specialists,LLC are crooks. Tony (Anthony Sr.) has been to prison FBI number 274095P1. Do not let them in your house unsupervised, do not give them a deposit or down payment and do not let them video your pipes. These people are professional criminals. You have been warned

They are still cheating people but in bigger numbers. Tony Sr is a criminal and is now hiding behind the Warren judges. Tony Sr. has already been to prison for this!

OH my gosh!!! I have been taken. I am a senior living on fixed income and my house is 80 years old, so thought the sewer was needing replacing. We Seniors are too trusting as no one would do you wrong in our day, no would would be such a crook.
They were even going to dig up my yard, but after replacing sewer under basement floor, I decided to just have outside snaked out for now. He ran a camera and was to call me when it was ready, but he never did, it was done before I knew it,if he even ran the camera at all, said it was ok, blamed other plumber for it. They had done other small jobs for me and I thought they were honest. I had a drain put in the floor and they have not come back to cut and cap it. I have called them a number of times, leaving messages, they don't answer the phone anymore either, and they do not call back. Maybe they are all in Prison now.

I came out better than some of you. They just stopped by just before noon and cut and capped the drains. I did contact BBB this morning, don't know if BBB works that fast, anyway now I can go on with my life.

Now Tony Jr has slightly changed the name of the company and is scamming people with this dad! The BBB and State Licensing Boards need to do somthing to shut these people down. Jr got his license by scamming the system with someone elses Master license.

This man screws his own family on jobs. Why do you think they keep changing the name of the company?
