I chose Fischer over at least a half-dozen other plumbers (ones without glossy photos in the phone book) due to their hourly rate, location and capability. The job to be done was to unclog a sewer drain and they did that successfully. We received a lot of good information from the personable and experienced technician and ended up having him mark the line locations for a very reasonable additional fee. (Marking the lines was necessary in order to gather bids to replace the sewer lines). We ended up not going with Fischer for sewer line replacement due to cost, but they were second choice of the four bids we received (the top bid just couldn't be beat, and the job went very well).

PROS: Quick, knowledgeable, friendly
CONS: Didn't mark my sewer line completely correctly

I'm confused about Fischer Plumbing. I thought they were local plumbers but I was wrong. We had a job to install a garbage disposal and it was not an emergency. When the person finally arrived (late) I found out he had come all the way from Bremerton. Bremerton to Ballard? I was very confused.

In any case, the person didn't want to install the disposal we had and insisted it was not good quality. I think this was good advice and I appreciated it and instead bought a model from him and decided to return the disposal I had bought. He installed the disposal, tested it and left.

The next morning we had buckets of water pouring out from the bottom of the sink. Oops!? Of course, it was Saturday. I called and could not get anyone and they refused to come out to fix it without an emergency charge. At this point, we had dirty water leaking under the sink and no bucket large enough to capture it all and no luck for service until Monday.

They finally sent a different person on Monday to fix it. I believe the person that came out actually said some disparaging words about the first person that came out! There was no compensation or apologies. I wouldn't do business with them again, nor would I recommend them. Bottom line, if you do use them, do it early in the week so you don't get stuck over the weekend with a leaky sink!

PROS: Would not install an inferior grade part and explained why it was inferior.
CONS: Would not fix a problem they caused because it fell on a weekend; not nice!
