I have a hot water heater install. I felt they did a very good job answering all my questions, open communication and trusted that the plumber had good experience I could trust. Also thought they were reasonable with price.

Saved My Party

I had this big party planned and every thing was going great. My brother came with the bad news All the drains where backed up. It was 10.00 pm on a Sat. and I was about to have a braek down the door bell rang and this guy said he was from Bob Oates Sewer and Drain and he came to fixed the problem it was 10.35 pm. It was told to me later that one of my guess knew of this service and just called. The problem was solved and the party was great. I am ever greatful MIKE H New youk City

This guy knows his stuff

I know Bob Oates as a resource provider rather than as a customer, but I have frequently observed him in action with his employees and customers. He is a second generation plumber and has learned everything his father had to teach him and added his own talents and drive to the mix. If I ever had an issue with my plumbing or had an occasion to recommend a plumber to anyone, Bob Oates would be my choice--hands down! He is like a bulldog--won't let go of a problem until it is solved. And, he hires plumbers who do the same thing....Tom Andrew

Great Service

When the monsoon rains came thru earlier this year the back end of our print shop was flooding due to a clogged scupper and sewer line. Bob's team came to our rescue, the line was cleared and we have not experienced any further water problems. We are happy to refer anyone with plumbing issues to Bob Oates!

Honest Seattle Plumbers

I have been happy with Bob Oates Sewer and Rooter. They are professional, orderly, timely and more importantly informative. They will tell you what needs to be done and not ""over sell you"" products or services you don't need. Very Happy!

Best plumbing service available

I have known Bob for over 20 years and in that time he has saved my bacon on many occasions. He is an expert in the plumbing field and doesn't charge an arm and a leg for his services.

He is honest and fair and fast and never leaves a mess behind. If you need help call his company first and then you'll want to put it on speed dial for future reference.

I give this company 2 thumbs up!

Great service, great price, great company!!

I called up Bob Oates & they said they had a man in my area. He arrived within the hour and unstopped my bathtub drain.
The man was very clean (wore booties) and very curteous. Reasonable price & fast service! I love it!

Helpful and quick. Good work, fair price.

Good work! They were able to work us into the schedule right away, were very nice about my kid's explorations with toys and the potty, and got the job done efficiently. Went through the steps of seeing if we could get the obstructions out without taking the toilet apart...had to pull them apart to get the toys out.
