That is completely false, although I do appreciate a court record, as I will now forward this to my attorney for slander, libel and defamation, on a public forum, without any factual basis/invoices/etc. Empire Plumbing did not exist in 2001, which is not entirely difficult to research as it is public record. Furthermore, as I have stated before Empire Plumbing did not perform any work for you, and is in no way responsible for any work another company may have performed. As I have stated I do not appreciate unfounded malicious attempts to assassinate my companies profile. thank you

made a mess, left it, never came back, will not return calls, takes your money and leaves. Does not know what they are doing, ask the owner of Buscemi's in Warren! Even the inspectors overlooked the shotty workmanship.(i'm being nice)best they can do is clean fecal matter out of a drain. Your better off doing it yourself by renting the equipment. Everyone,call problem solvers at FOX 2 and file with the state!

Hello Rob,

You can contact Empire Plumbing at any timeand we would be more than happy to address any of your concerns. Empire Plumbing completes all work in a clean and professional mannerand in accordance with city and state plumbing codes. In reference to Buschemi's all work was completed professionally and up to state code, in fact we are still working on projects for the owner of building and one of the contractors so what you are stating is in fact untrue malicious slander. Again rather than posting malicious slander under false pretenses and assumed identities please contact the company. Thank you

You avoid customers who try to contact you for warranty work, completion or repairs. Tony scammed me, along with Anthony and Joe, just like everyone else you ripped off. The only reason Buscemi's passed inspection is because another plumber did the work!!! Lets see what the reporters dig up on Capital, Empire, Tony, Anthony, Denise and Joe. Dig that!

Who is this? Empire would appreciate a call or contact and would be more than happy to resolve or address any of your concerns at that point, rather than slandering a company under an assumed name.
Stay tuned

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.
Nope, their not in jail yet, still out there taking good, hard working, honest peoples money. Call Fox 2 Now!

They are great at cheating and lying, thats about it. They hide behind their storefront, make shift office claiming to be plumbers. Do not do business with them!!! Not happy at all, tried to call them, they ignore calls, and rarely are in their office, if your lucky to catch them there, they say the will make it right.... Signed, unhappy in bluewater!

Funny my friend called empire because her basement had flooded, empire came out snaked her drain....less than a month later, not even 39 days, her basement flooded again. What kind of reputable business does not offer a warranty? Even fly by night mechanics offer a 30 day! Glad I see how these are worried about slander yet know not what it means....liable is written slander is spoken.

Hi Joe,

Unfortunately, Empire Plumbing cannot and does not warranty existing piping systems. Furthermore, you would be hard pressed to find any drain cleaning company willing to warranty her existing exterior drains as quite a few factors exist at her residence:
1. There is a severe problem within her sanitary line as it pertains to conducting drainage waters past the sidewalk.
2. Customer is unwilling to have a commercial eel with a 4-6" cutter run through existing 6" c/o.
3. Upon last visit in which line was cabled and subsequently opened it was found that customer and residents of home were disposing of large amounts of feminine products via aforementioned drain, therefore causing back-up.(Customer was witness to this and further acknowledged feminine products on written contract).

With that being said, Empire Plumbing is/was more than happy to work with aforementioned customer. I would kindly ask that you also view Empire Plumbing Waterproofing Specialists on the BBB. As Empire Plumbing has a wonderful track record and rating in an arena where any complaints fielded can be rightfully answered without the ability to defame a company with slander or libel on an open forum with clear intentions to insinuate wrongdoing without utilizing the truth.

Thank you
Joe

So you know the afore mentioned friend seeing as how I made no mention of when service was performed, or service performed but not finished. When you pay have a service performed and you are told it is finished why would you need to come back for the same reason a few weeks later and then charge again for services rendered? Do you pay to have a car painted, then the guy only paints half and charges you again to paint the rest? Empire plumbing and water proofing is not accredited with the bbb. It doesn't matter you only have 5 complaints seeing as how open forums are where more people post their problems than to the bbb.
Funny how I mention empire plumbing to my girlfriend and she immediately cringes. You performed service for her mother and were very very unprofessional, scratched the hell out of her hard wood floors and left a mess. I had forgetten we had ever dealt your business in the past

Say, BRUCE,(poser for Tony Jr) what did your attorney say after you "forwarded" the court case judgement/info to him? Yeah, right, like that was gonna happen!! BTW, you don't read so good...I clearly stated that Anthony Detrapani Sr used Capital Plumbing truck, address, equipment and paperwork for this scam, his brother/owner had no idea!! When I won the court case I was told Tony Sr got fired. Tony Sr. started "Empire" after that to scam others. Too bad Tony Sr. is "training up his kids" to do the same, sad scams. "Sins of the father are passed to the children", I hope the kids wake up before it is too late!
