I found water in my basement, and called Jim Dandy Sewer. They charge by the hour, which made me a little nervous.. how do we know they wont be working in slow motion? Well, they surprised me with their efficiency! The technician was on time, had a professional appearance, got the job done quickly, and left my basement clean. Through the process they were able to answer my questions, and left me feeling well informed. I have used other companies before, and after the horible past, will never call anyone else again! Call Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing, they will get it done, and get it done right!

Jim Dandy has been amazing with every project we?ve contracted them out to do. They are easily the best plumbers in Seattle. Incredibly skilled, and not afraid to get their hands dirty. We?ve hired them out for big projects like septic and sewer work and simple things like unclogging a toilet.\tThey excel at both types of jobs. Great guys, I cannot recommend them enough to people!
We started having problems with my sewer line a couple of months ago, and I had two different companies come out and try to clear it. Both times things seemed fixed for a week or so, then the problem came back. The third time I called Jim Dandy and had one of their technicians on at my door in about an hour. He got to work with his heavy duty drain cleaning machine and in less than an hour cleared the sewer line all the way to the city sewer and made a video tape for me showing the condition of my pipes.\nFrom the time I called Jim Dandy to come out to when their guy completed the job, it was as pleasant an experience as possible under the circumstances. The Jim Dandy technician recommended that I have someone out at least once a year to do a maintenance cleaning. I'll definitely call them when the time comes, or if I need any other service.

I have a house in seattle that needed to have some of the plumbing repaced. I have been putting it off for years after a terrible run in with a plumber who we hired to do a job, he gave us a good price, then when the work was done the bill had tripled! I have been terrified to go through this again. I called several places to get a feel for the company and decided to try Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing. They came out fast, they did a great job, and the price was exactly as they said it would be. Honest and Fair! I will no longer hesitate to call a plumber, I will just call Jim Dandy!

We recently got a call from our renters in East Seattle. We live over 2\nhours away so, you can imagine how stressful it was to know that we \nneeded professional help and we couldn't be there. After searchin online,\nI called Jim Dandy. I was immediatly glad that I did. The dispatcher was friendly, helpful and walked me through the process and explained the fees. The plumber showed up on time and completed the work faster than we thought he would be able to. Our renter said that he was polite and very professional. The fee was exactly what we were told it would be. How refreshing to not be presented with additional fees and charges as seems so typical anymore. Next time we are in need of a \nplumber I wont need to search online, I'll just call Jim Dandy.

When the drains around my house failed and water pooled, I feared that water would eventually make it into my house. I panicked, I called several different places. Some places had voice recording machines where I could leave a message, some people didn't speak english.. and some just rang and rang. When I got to Jim Dandy I got a real live english speaking person who understood my urgency. She rearranged her schedule so that I could get someone out right away, because she was also concerned about the raising water levels. The technician came out when they said he would. Not that it mattered, but he did have a clean professional appearance. I appreciated his kind disposition, I felt like he wasn't there because he had to be, he really did want to help. The job wasn't easy, they ended up having to bring out the big truck that sucked the water up at the last minute, saving my carpet! I recommend Jim Dandy, they by far exceeded my expectations.

Sewer repairs are crappy. Fact is, they require a lot of work, can cost a lot, and mean you don't get to shower or use the facilities in your house until they are fixed. \n\nMy wife and I were married at the beginning of this month and all the family and friends who attended strained the system at our mid-century house in Ballard and gave us our first challenge as newlyweds - a sewage back-up in our basement (thankfully, the house-guests had left). We rented a rooter and managed to snake out some roots we knew were a problem about 30' down our lateral line (right under a neighbors tree) but during the process we collapsed about 6' worth of pipe right where the sewer line bends out of our house and heads towards the main. Total block. \n\nMy new father-in-law had worked with Jim Dandy before and recommended them (I was a little nervous after reading the so-so reviews here and elsewhere). I called them and they had a plumber, Shawn, come out within the hour. He identified the block, tried a rooter head, confirmed the line was broken, and then used a radio-locator to pinpoint the location, which was luckily not under our concrete slab. He worked really fast, let me pepper him with questions, and was super nice. He was there for an hour and a half but only charged me an hour. He also set up an appointment with an estimator (Chris) early the next morning.\n\nChris came in and took a look at the location, and gave me a pretty good bid price. He was willing to be flexible on aspects of the job, and after consulting with him, we agreed on a division on labor that saved us quite a lot more. I and some willing friends dug a portion of the excavation that afternoon (4' down x 8' x 4' - we were sore!) and he had a crew come out the next day and dig down another 3' (digging more than 4' down can be dangerous without bracing, which the crew did when they arrived) as well as pull out the broken lateral line, replace it with PVC, completely rebuild a nearby downspout tie-in with PVC, and add a 4"" clean-out line to the surface. We did the backfilling.\n\nAs soon as the crew was done our second plumber, Jon, came out to scope the new pipes and clean out the remaining roots. He was able to get a 4' rooter tip to the main-line (120' away) and we took a look at the remaining concrete pipes on both sides of the house. They looked pretty good for being 65 years old. He even cleaned out the sand in our downspout p-traps. Despite the late hour, he did not charge us for overtime (which he technically should have). Like Shawn, he worked hard and fast and then billed slightly less time to us than he could have.\n\nI really liked everybody associated with the sewer mess. They were nice, sympathetic, flexible with the estimate, and fast. The project cost me way, way, way less than I thought it would have. It wasn't cheap - but it didn't break the bank. We were pretty lucky with the location of the break and didn't have to worry about city streets or sidewalks, big rocks, or under slab. What could have been a financial nightmare was resolved with only minimal pain and a lot of good learning experience.\n\nI would recommend Jim Dandy to anybody, and would also recommend tackling a sewer break with a willingness to ask questions, a willingness to do some of the grunt-work, and a friendly attitude. I think plumbers are like anyone else - if you get all mad at them for telling you the painful truth about your problem, you might not get the best service. If you can laugh about it a little, get engaged with the problem-solving, and see them as on your side, they really will be. \n

A clogged toilet is a problem. A clogged toilet that is overflowing and flooding your bathroom because your 4 year old decided it'd be a good idea to flush a sock-puppet down the toilet is a nightmare. In a panic I googled “Seattle Plumbers” and found Jim Dandy. They probably heard the panic in my voice because they were at the house within minutes and our plumber quickly and politely introduced himself and then went straight to work unplugging the toilet and returning our bathroom to it's status-quo.

Last weekend, our septic tank burst, causing a slew of problems to a portion of our home's foundation and affecting pipes in our basement, causing minor flooding. It was an absolute nightmare. Immediately we called an emergency cleaning service and a sewer contractors to tackle the most immediate problems. Jim Dandy Sewer and Plumbing Services were absolutely amazing in tackling the septic tank head on. I'm not sure what kind of plumbing magic they did, but they returned from the work covered with grime and successful. I really appreciate them doing the truly dirty work and saving our home.
