The laundry sink drain in our basement was clogged & since I had seen a Weltman truck in our neighborhood (New Providence, NJ) I phoned for a quote but was told a $49 charge would be incurred when the rep came and assessed the job.

I called 10 days ago with a slow bathtub drain. I had used snakes and used liquids but it was still slow. Figured I’d better call while the problem was small. Technician was very nice.

They know you are taking time off to wait for their visit. They say the problem could be significant, then it turns out $1000 later to be a 30 min fix. This is why they don't charge by the hour...
