    Benjamin Franklin Plumbing DeKalb did right by me.  They replaced my water heater quickly and efficiently under the manufacturer's warranty (something the original selling location in Yorkville wouldn't do). The unit was replaced under the manufacturer's warranty within 6 hours of my call to this location. Many thanks to Linda and Tony for a job well done.

    I read the other comments and although I did not have any work done yet - I have to share my experience.  We live in an old farmhouse (built in 1900).  In 2009, the pipes broke when the house was unoccupied.  RC Black did the repair work.  It appears as though BFP took over RC Black's business.  We have had an ongoing issue with sewer gas.  RC Black had come out in 2010 and gave us some ideas.  We implemented all of those and still have issues.  We have dealt with it until this year when I finally had enough.  I contacted BFP.  They took down a lot of information and then researched it.  Instead of having to pay for a service call, I received additional options to try before having to schedule a service call.  I appreciated the time spent.

    I hired Ben Franklin Plumbing (DeKalb) because they were able line the clay pipe leading to the main sewer, which was under the street, and line the 70 year old clay sewer pipe under the concrete floor in my basement without cutting up the concrete. Their lining offers 2 yr. warranty on the work and 50 yr. transferable warranty on the lining material. The lining process required BFP to return on a rainy Saturday, but Mark, the owner, returned working 4 hrs. in the rain to complete the lining process and insure the completed work was ready for the Village to inspect. A neighbor had done this and the overall cost to replace the sewer line to the main sewer in the middle of the street was twice the total cost from BFP. In addition, the aging clay tile into my house was lined. I will never have another sewer problem again. And if I do, I’ll call Ben Franklin Plumbing. THIS REVIEW AS IS HAS BEEN POSTED ON YELP.

    Heroes to our rescue!  Mark the owner came quite a drive from DeKalb to look at our job for pipe lining.  While there, he and his head plumber Vince realized with little additional modification we could convert to virtual overhead and qualify for a village rebate.      Before we committed to lining, our sewer had a partial collapse in the street for which we were responsible to fix.  I called Mark after hours, and he not only promptly returned my call but also had one of his guys come first thing in the morning to get us going.  When that did not work, Mark himself came with his camera/scope to further assess the situation- a collapsing clay line.  We agreed on a plan.  Mark called on his way home with an new idea which might save us some money if we were willing to try.  He came back the next day- a Saturday- and scoped again.            His outside-of the-box thinking ended up saving us more than $8,000!  We cannot express enough our appreciation for his willingness to solve our big problem in a cost effective, efficient, and minimally disruptive way.     The work Mark and his guys did was nothing short of amazing.  They were on the job first thing Monday morning even though it was a holiday.  They Perma-lined our sewer line, replaced our cast iron stack, added a clean-out, put in an ejector pit, rerouted laundry and utility sink, and put in a new floor drain.    The work took three days.  They taped off to protect things and cleaned up when they were done.  The cost was not cheap but absolutely fair.  Most of all, they came in an emergency, and problem solved as if it were their own home.  We would give you 10 stars if we could, Thanks Mark!
