Essential Plumbing & Sewer
See what people are sayng about us

"They came out on Sunday and did not charge extra. He was able to save us money, by making a simple fix to what could have been a major problem which would have required the city to come and turn off the water to our house." - Satisfied customer in Winfield

"I called Essential Plumbing when we needed to replace two sump pumps during a time when there was lots of rain. I needed the job done right away. Fernando got to work right away and put in 2 new sump pumps, piping, a new electronic status gadget, and a new watchdog battery. The new set up was so much better than the rickety pipes of the old one and with a professional look. It cost me $950 for everything including the pumps. Later we needed to upgrade our kitchen with new faucet and a change from electric to gas stove. We did not realize that the existing pipe was not large enough for the range and the dryer. The gas pipe running the width of our house was needed to be changed to 3/3 before the Stove and dryer could be hooked up. The price was $785 which we knew was very reasonable." - Satisfied customer in Wheaton

"He did things very carefully and cleaned up. He gave me other helpful suggestions about my plumbing I highly recommend Essential and Fernando for the great job done. The price and the prompt and professional service made us very satisfied customers. I don’t usually post like this but these jobs have been really special for us and I wanted to share it with others." - Satisfied customer in Wheaton

"We had strange, ammonia-filled water coming out of the few-month old kitchen faucet we'd purchased via the Internet. Fernando from Essential Plumbing helped us troubleshoot the problem, which involved checking all other possible causes and problem areas, including the point at which the water main enters the house, the hot water heater, and all other faucets in the home. As he proceeded through our home, he quickly unclogged 2 bathroom sinks (both were badly clogged and going unused since we had double-sink vanities in these 2 bathrooms). He also diagnosed a critical problem with our pipes that could cause significant damage over time. Once he'd confirmed that the water quality issue must be arising from the kitchen faucet itself, he coached me on how to proceed with the manufacturer (i.e., telling them that a licensed plumber had determined that the issue must be arising from their product). I followed his advice and received a replacement faucet two weeks later. I called Fernando late on the afternoon when the faucet arrived, and he was at our home the next morning to install it. He and his partner were amazingly efficient during this process. Fernando was a pleasure to work with, helpful and thorough. He did not charge us for unclogging the faucets, nor for the time he spent diagnosing the problem. We will definitely call upon him for future plumbing needs." - Satisfied customer in Wheaton

"Friendly helpful honest What else do you need? We have a new plumber!" - Satisfied customer in Aurora

 "Responded quickly. explained all the options. Had new equipment on the truck. Price was good. Did not try to oversell anything. I will use them again." - Satisfied customer in Aurora

"We used Essential Plumbing for a “minor” plumbing problem and were impressed by their workmanship. The first testament to their good service was the free estimate. It was performed on a Sunday in the evening. They knew it was not an emergency but they still came out when we requested them to. They provided several choices but never seemed pushy. After consideration we decided what to do and a date was set for a week later. Overall, their service was excellent, professional, and at a good price. We would use them again for our further plumbing needs." - Satisfied customer in Glendale heights

"Did a great job! Was clean, courteous, and knowledgeable. Will definitely call again if need be." - Satisfied customer in Geneva

"We are first time home owners of a 100 year old home and have had a lot of plumbing work done by Essential Plumbing. Fernando is very patient with us (we are learning but didn't know anything about plumbing prior to owning a home!) and explains what needs to be fixed and why as well as how it will be done.  EP did all of the plumbing for a bathroom remodel last summer and recently replaced our old sump pump and installed a back up system for the pump. We are very happy with the work done and highly recommend Essential Plumbing. Thanks again!" - Satisfied customer in Riverside
