i use to work for south west plumbing they are a rip off. for instance bait and switch with thier coupons if you notice when you call for thier services they ask if you have a coupon. that is so they can let the plumber know so when he gets there to bid the job he can adjust his price to the coupon. they also never offer the senior discount that they advertise. alot of plumbers that work there get excited when they get work orders to senior citzen house because most seniors don't know the rates for plumbing or if they even have to do the work that the plumber recomends. for excample, you could have a cloged kitchen drain and the pipe was put in around the sixtys. the plumber will tell you that the drain can't be snaked and make you feel like youhave no choice in reality only they can't snake it but, what they fail to mention is there are plenty of other companies who can snake that kind of drain. it would cost them a whole lot less money where south west plumbing wants to charge you 12 to 15 hundred dollars to replace that pipe verses 100$ to have it snaked by another company. the reasons for this greed is every plumber makes 20% commisson on each job they do. each plumber every month sets a goal for himself what i mean by goal is how much money he is going to bring in for the company. the goal is set anywhere from 40 to 80 thousand a month. times that by 24 plumbers and you got a lot of money that the plumbers bring in and if they bring more than thier goal they get a bonus. which gives them a reanson to rip you off not saying its right and they have at least 8 plumbers that aren't journey men plumbers that charge journey men prices like beacon plumbing was doing and you would be amazed how many of their plumbers have drug problems. i don't know about you but i wouldn't want someone high working on my plumbing. not to metion the danger they put there coworkers especially when they're digging 6 to 10 foot trenches that could callapse at any time because of one mistake which almost happened to me had a plumber leave apprentices on a job where we were digging a trench that size and it callapsed and almost buried me all because the plumber i was with was stoned. so the reasons i tell everyone this because i believe in bad carma which is another reason i don't work for this company any more. i don't believe that it should continue to be allowed to run its buisness this way especally in these hard times
