E.E. Cummings an American writer, artist was an ambulance driver in WWI where he may have found this notion ... “Trust your heart if the seas catch fire, live by love though the stars walk backward.” Thanks Jim for taking a moment to share a plumbing service review. Good to hear Pete gave you great service. As for pricing, we work to be competitive. With quality people and all the other costs to run a shop... make it hard to swallow at times. Although maybe you know a low cost attorney. :-) Thanks again for choosing PDM!

Home generator quote

Just received quote on home generator. On average, $6000.00 higher than other quotes. Have been a PDM customer for some 20+ years and felt service in the past was quite good. With this new quote, in the future I think I should start getting other quotes when needing either heating or ac work.


Response from PDM Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Since 1885:

Hi Marlene, we usually are very competitive with our work. For your job we used an electrical subcontractor to bid on the work and we did the gas piping and equipment set-up. The sub's bid turned out to be way off and for that we apologize. Looks like we will not bid on generators in the future as sub contractors can damage our brand and your trust. Thanks for your review and trust over the many years. We still hope to serve you in the future. You know we a good team who cares. Thanks again Marlene! Stay well.

Always the best

Anthony has been doing our plumbing and HVAC at the house for years. He was there again today doing a routine AC check. And as always we later felt his visit was actually critical. Turns out there’s a blanket of leaves and dust inside the AC we had no idea of. He took the time to thoroughly clean it. It will save us energy and extend the life of the unit. We always respect and appreciate the work of PDM and their people. Great service.

Great Communication

Brennon was timely, worked hard and helped explain things as he went to assist as I am a new home owner. Unit is running better at this point but I need to monitor to make sure ice buildup does not continue to hold. One comment Brennon left was that the thermostat should be located upstairs as the ventilation is not quite sufficient and so the first floor gets to temperature far earlier than the second floor. I would like a price to relocate the thermostat directly up. Additionally, shortly after hey left, the Honeywell thermostat screen went blank. I tried new batteries, flipping the breaker, flipping the batteries and holding the home button to try to get a factory reset. Not sure why it went dark but would like a call to hopefully fix without a visit.


Response from PDM Plumbing, Heating, Cooling Since 1885:

Hi Julian, thanks for choosing PDM and for taking time to share your air conditioning service review. A new home filled with surprises. As you know, Brennon gave you his all to keep your old AC working safely and efficiently. Glad your new AC system will give you peace of mind for years to come. Thanks again for trusting in PDM.

Commercial plumbing repair. Water pipe leak repair. Identified leak on 2” copper 90 in ceiling above 2” meter. Attempted to shut off water by the meter but neither valve was operating. Had City of Lockport water department come to shut off main in order to cut out and replace the 2” 90. Also replaced split lawn faucet.

Once the water can be shut off move a shut off stop for a Sloan valve because it’s not lined up with where the spud is on the toilet.

Drain cleaning. Rodded from cleanout in backyard closest to the house. Broke up clog but it moved and caused another blockage. Rodded from cleanout on the side of the house. The line is open now. Cleanout in back is still holding a little water after going back and running the rod back and forth multiple times, the most likely explanation is a belly in the pipe. If it backs up again using the camera is recommended. Waiving dispatch fee per Dave because Mike was out here rodding earlier this month.
