Hi St.Cloud residents,as of a week ago i went to an un-named hardware store in St.Cloud and asked if they knew of a reputable plumber,the employee instantly gave me a buisness card for Pat Constantine Plumbing. I called and talked to Pat,told him my outdoor main water cut off valve needed replacing,he said that would be $145,so on Monday he sent one of his Employee's (since his vehicle had transmission problems)over with the employee's son,who did all the work. When the employee saw the outside cutoff valve right away he said i'll have to jack hammer into concrete,so now that will cost you $250,i've been through alot this past year,my wife passed away 2 months ago so i said go for it,i didn't want to deal with breaking the concrete myself. So my friend and i are there,at the most 20 feet from the work area,we were replacing a rubber window seal on my Mustang,within a 30-35 minute period the plumbers finished their job,no breaking or "jack hammering" of concrete was involved, HE REPLACED THE CUTOFF VALVE WITH A USED ONE,DUG TWO FEET to FIND where to splice into the PVC from the meter. I asked him what do i owe you,his reply..250$ Later i called the owner...PAT CONSTANTINE,he was more them willing to reimburse me 50 dollars and said he would be over to check out the work done...since then,NO WORD FROM PAT CONSTANTINE. I went to the downtown hardware in St.Cloud today to let them know the story,the employee instantly said others have had problems too with this company...SO,BEWARE!!!!!!!!!!
oh yeah,the employee said to me,if there's a problem,i want to know now because i don't want to come back! Nice,professional attitude? I DON'T THINK SO!!!!

Sorry have used Pat Constatine for 15 years and hundreds of jobs with no complaints at all. Pat doesn't use computers and therefore unable to defend himself. Theres always two sides to a story and Pats side is very different to this one. I would highly reccomend him to anyone

If this guy is family with Diane Brown Constatine I tend to belive the first blog. The Brown family owners of Bridges of America and Florida Prison Scams se nothing wrong with sex with children and Don Brown in writing said in fact it is to be expected. What? He thinkgs its alright as long as it's under the watchful eye of his friend Lake Sheriff Gary Borders

HOW DOES THE POWERFUL GET AWAY WITH ABUSING LITTLE BOYS AND COVERING UP FOR THEIR FRIENDS?

I have to chime in here. My bathroom floor was flooded and I called Pat whom I've known for years. Pat showed up the same day to see whether it was a major job involving breaking concrete or just a standard repair. He gave me ball park quotes for both.
It turned out that the wax seal needed to be replaced which his helper did in under an hour. He also told me how I could check the meter to see whether or not it was a pipe leak so that I would know if it was major or not. He could have ripped me off easily, but he didn't. We've used him since '97 and have always found him to do a good job, charge a fair price and often go above and beyond to try and help you out.

I would recommend him to anyone. I will say that sometimes people confuse him with Constantine Plubming which there is not affiliation whatsoever. Pat Constantine is the one you want.

The FACT that you begin your uneducated speculation with 'IF', effectively dismisses your asinine verbal vomit.

Pat, is a generous and honorable man who not only is a good Christian but a fellow American. He is not tech savvy but has integrity and a witty joke to share whenever I see him. His workers are most likely taking advantage of his good heart and he is doing majority of the Q&A control, by memory.
A FAIR recourse for you should have been done mano a mano not through slanders in public forum, that multi-tasking father would have given you a more than a fair shake if you called him again, not going to the hardware store which is most likely just down the road from his office.
Find a little peace and give that gentleman a call.

Pat did own and operate Constantine did own and operate Constantine Plumbing and is known or using used parts, to save people money. His wife also died recently.
