“He was AWESOME and did a FANTASTIC Job. I would use him again.”
Dave came to my house to fix my shower where the water wouldn't shut off. He knew when i called him what the problem was & came out Saturday morning to fix it. He walked me thru the problem & told me what he had to do to fix it & he did. After he was finished he took the time to clean everything up and made sure there were no leaks. The shower works better than ever. He was AWESOME and did a FANTASTIC Job. I would use him again.

“I can't thank Dave enough!”
I can't thank Dave enough! Even in the midst of all of the recent, local flooding, he responded to my non-emergency issue call promptly. Also going a step further to ensure that I had someone here to diagnose the problem the next business day. Very professional, very personable, and very knowledgeable. His commitment to repair and customer satisfaction is refreshing, and a value you don't come across often these days. Highly recommend!

“I just used this guy's services for plumbing...Wow. VERY IMPRESSIVE!”
I just used this guy's services for plumbing and septic. Wow. VERY IMPRESSIVE! Our plumbing was backed up and coming up through the first floor shower. I called Dave and he came out with one of his associates and immediately traced down the problem. They ran a pipe snake through our system and got the system flowing again. However, it did not stop there. He inspected the septic pipe connection to the house and discovered it had cracked and was blocking 50% of the house drainage. In fact, it had become clogged with toilet paper due to the blockage. The crack in the old iron septic pipe happened due to the house and septic tank settling over a 23 year period. He showed me everything and I took pictures. It became very obvious the drainage was going to need to be replaced as it would be a matter of time before it clogged again. This meant digging by the house foundation, under our wood deck, and replacing the pipe with a newer flexible pipe. They were able to get the entire job done within the morning: Pulling up deck boards, digging to the foundation, removing the old pipe, replacing with new pipe, installing a new clean out, back fill with gravel, AND restoring the deck wood back to new...impressive carpentry skills too. I posted the pictures here on Yelp. Check 'em out. He did a fantastic job on everything. Very professional. Friendly. Great communication. Fast service! He is the best guy to call in McHenry county for plumbing, septic, and sewer.

“They were able to fix the problem without any major remodel and save me thousands”
Dave and his team were professional, courteous and respectful of our home. I had a leak in my kitchen ceiling due to master shower and they fixed/replaced the drain from both the kitchen ceiling and shower in a shorter time than I thought was possible and for less. The first plumber I contacted told me it was a major job and that it was a bad situation and would cost me thousands to repair and remodel. Not only did it not cost a total remodel job, but it was even less than Dave's original estimate. They were able to fix the problem without any major remodel and save me thousands. They wore booties the entire time, even though they were in and out and up and down the stairs. They went over everything they did and had me inspect their work. And, they even suggested a drywall/painter person to fix the gap in the ceiling. I've own a home this home for 30 years and had many repair/maintenance/remodeling people through the years, but never have I ever come across this type of professionalism and courteousness. I highly recommend Dave and his team.

“No one wants to have to call a plumber, but when you do, these guys seem great to me. I will definitely use them again.”
I had the threaded end of a shower arm snap off inside the pipe in the wall. Try as I might, I couldn't dislodge it. I called Dave's Plumbing and they worked with me on a time to come out that next day. Great guys. They were able to finesse the piece out in no time with no need to cut into the drywall. I asked them to take a look at my other shower arm upstairs since I'd been unable to remove it (and was worried it might snap off as well). They were able to replace that for me quite quickly. No one wants to have to call a plumber, but when you do, these guys seem great to me. I will definitely use them again (crossing fingers it won't have to be soon though!). : )

“I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the area.”
Dave came out on a Sunday morning and did a great job for a reasonable price. He was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for fixes I can do on my own. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in the area.

“Dave was great. I called him in the morning for a sump pump issue and he was at my house that afternoon to check it out. He was very thorough, detailed and gave me a fair price.”
— Anthony R. / Barrington, IL / Yelp
“Pricing was reasonable and honored the quote that was originally given.”
Dave is great. I called him this morning with a hot water heater issue. He was able to come out today and install a new one so we now have hot water again!! His professionalism was apparent from our initial phone call and continued through the service call. We walked us through what was needed to ensure that the unit was installed properly. Pricing was reasonable and honored the quote that was originally given.
I highly recommend Dave and will definitely use him again if I am ever in need of a plumber again.

“I was impressed how thorough he was cleaning up, and really appreciated his professional manner and easy nature.”
Contacted Dave this morning at 8:30am. He called us back about 2 hours later and made arrangements to be at our house later that afternoon. Dave showed up early, determined the issue and then set about fixing obstruction in our pipes. A little over an hour later he was done. I was impressed how thorough he was cleaning up, and really appreciated his professional manner and easy nature. Highly recommended.

“Dave is very knowledgeable, and a true professional. I appreciate your commitment to following through on a project/problem, not only to fix it, but also to help your clients understand and feel informed. You rock!!”

“He was friendly and approachable throughout, and went above and beyond our expectations.”
We had a pipe burst in our home a few weeks ago, and we called Dave on the recommendation of a friend. He came out within 1.5 hours after calling, and this was after normal business hours. He was very methodical and organized in finding the leak, and helped us understand what he was doing through the whole process. He was friendly and approachable throughout, and went above and beyond our expectations. Even cleaning up extremely well at after midnight. So thankful for his help during a very stressful time for us. Highly recommend.

“I was so impressed with his work that I had him quote both jobs at that time.”
Had Dave out to fix the ejector pump and bring it up to code, as well as, fix a leaking garbage disposal and rework the plumbing under the sink (so it would drain properly). Dave was out before to replace the water heater. I was so impressed with his work that I had him quote both jobs at that time. It was totally worth the money to have it fixed properly by Dave. My drain has been running smooth and GD working great ever since. In addition, the ejector pump runs smoothly and quietly. If we were to decide to sell this home, I know it will be up to code and pass inspection. Thanks again Dave for another job well done.

“We had Dave out to install a toilet for us the other day he was on time, kept everything clean, answered all our question did a great job will definitely use again.”
— Debbie B. / Cary, IL / Yelp
“I LOVE his work...”
I've used Dave's Plumbing twice now - to replace water supply valves to my washer and to install a new sump pump and replace a leaking valve to my humidifier. I LOVE his work - he is so attentive to every detail, takes great care of my house and does not leave until he has answered any questions and is sure I am happy with the work. He never cuts corners in his repairs, and does not mind me watching and asking endless questions. Just a fantastic guy to work with!
— Liz M. / Cary, IL / Yelp
“He is very thorough and very easy to work with, and his cost was very reasonable!”
I needed the shutoff valves to my washer replaced because they were leaking slightly, and I was worried that a total failure would cause a huge mess. Dave was recommended to me by my HVAC servicer and by a happy customer of his. We set an appointment that worked for my schedule, and he showed up right on time. He checked out the valves, told me what he would recommend and the estimated cost, laid down his tarps and did a fantastic job installing new valves. He checked and double checked for any leaks, answered all my questions, cleaned up everything and galloped away. He is very thorough and very easy to work with, and his cost was very reasonable! I will definitely use him again

“Very professional service and extremely thoughtful to the consumer.”
I called late on Monday and by Tuesday around 1:30 he was out. Less than 24 hours. He and his helper were very professional and listened to all we had to say about our toilet issues. They cleaned up and left the bathroom very clean just as they found it. Dave was very knowledgeable, and kept us informed on all the aspects of the job. On occasion they had to improvise, and was able to save us a great deal of money. Very professional service and extremely thoughtful to the consumer. A great job.

“Dave is the only plumber I will ever call or recommend.”
Dave has done many projects for us over the years ranging from a new kitchen faucet to a battery back up sump. Most recently he came out to unclog my kitchen sink. And it was not an easy task. Dave was very patient and persistent until he fixed it. He is extremely knowledgeable, tidy and efficient.
Dave is the only plumber I will ever call or recommend.

“...Spoke with Dave yesterday & he was so kind & helpful. He went out to my house this morning and was able to fix the problem in a little over an hour. Will call Dave again & recommend him to all my friends! Thank you, DAVE!!!”

“...I was relieved to find that Dave's work was done well and not over priced.”
I received my initial recommendation from a fellow home school mom who had used him in the past. We had Dave out to remove our leaking water heater and install a new water heater. He gave me an initial quote over the phone sight unseen. I knew it would cost me more, because I knew I had some extra problems related to it that would need fixing while he was out. He showed up a little late, but that didn't effect my schedule. I knew the job would require more work time due to the extra problems they would incur. He and his apprentice were great, professional, thorough and neat. Neither stopped until they got the job done, and they did it correctly. (Both never took a smoking break either, so I will assume they don't smoke. They both worked right through lunch.) I have been duped in the past by shoddy workmanship and high cost labor, but I was relieved to find that Dave's work was done well and not over priced. He was kind and courteous and even showed me how to ignite the new water heater. I am so satisfied with his work that I am having him quote two more jobs for us: burnt out ejector pump and leaking garbage disposal. From what Dave said, the initial installers didn't install either to code or correctly. He also gave us some great recommendations for other contractors that we will be needing service of in the near future. It was intuition to go with him after talking with him on the phone, and my intuition proved right. He never talked down to me. Great plumber and personality! Job well done!

“That's the difference with Dave.”
Unfortunately, discovered a water drip running down the face of our kitchen cabinet. Called Dave and he was out the next day. Turned out that the toilet was leaking at the wax ring (yuck). Many plumbers could have fixed the problem, but the way that Dave fixed it insures that it will not leak again, and if it does, the water will pool on the floor rather than drip down through the ceiling or wall. That's the difference with Dave. You can be assured that the job is fixed correctly the first time and whatever is fixed or replaced is most probably better than what you had before the fix.

“First, Dave is a great person who happens to be a superb plumber.”
Dave was out today to replace a garbage disposal that began to leak. I have used Dave exclusively many times over the past few years. First, Dave is a great person who happens to be a superb plumber. He is interested in solving your plumbing problem the best way possible, not in jacking up your bill as high as possible. Dave is honest, trustworthy, does excellent, clean, work that is up to code. I am always extremely satisfied with Dave's work and recommend him to whomever needs a plumber. If you are looking for a plumber that you can actually trust in your home and to do a great job, I recommend Dave without any hesitation.

“Dave patiently explained all of my options, the pros and cons of the various models of pumps for my house and purposes and was, at all times, considerate and respectful.”

“Dave deserves more than 5 stars.”
Dave deserves more than 5 stars. He installed a sump pump with a battery back-up, an ejector basin pump and lid, a kitchen faucet and a garbage disposal for me. As a woman, I was concerned that someone would try to take advantage of my lack of knowledge on the subject of sump pumps. Dave patiently explained all of my options, the pros and cons of the various models of pumps for my house and purposes and was, at all times, considerate and respectful. He told me that an item that I thought was broken was not and merely required flipping a switch to correct it. He returned to install a soap dispenser in my kitchen, at no charge, because he had promised to do so. The work was performed very well, expeditiously, and the area was left in better condition than when he had arrived. I will not hesitate to call Dave's Plumbing for any plumbing issues I may have in the future (he left his number attached to the sump pump piping for easy access)!
