I was having water pressure and hot water issues so I paid for an inspection and Water Heater Flush. I agreed to an increase because I have a tankless water heater which was fine but they were unable to do the service because I had the wrong connections. Then it was $90 more because I have a raised foundation and all my plumbing is underneath the house, the fee was for extra insurance or something. They didn't seem very interested in diagnosing my water pressure problems, in fact the guy who showed up was more of an estimator than a plumber. In the end I paid $175 for to give me a very expensive estimate with no ideas on what my problem could be. They basically told me I lived in an old house and it is what it is. I did not receive a refund for the water heater flush even though they never did it. I called another company who came out the same day diagnosed and fixed the problem for way less money... also the estimate was FREE. I do not recommend Einstein Plumbing unless you have money to burn and don't care if the job is being done right.

I bought an early bird furnace tune-up discount service,[from an Meridian Idaho football coupon book] they called an made an appointment for 1-4-2013. This is my first house ,about 10 months now, and it has central heating and my brother, who has had central heating for years, said to get the turn-up every year.
They showed up on time but during the tune-up they showed me that the water heater was old and could fail at anytime.
we were going to replace the furnace flame nozzles [rusted] and the blower [dirty] and water heater for $1674.26. BUT
I then got the dreaded call that the flame nozzles were no longer available,as the furnace was so old , so we needed to replace
the furnace too at a cost of APR. $750 more or a total of $2425 plus change.
Will it needed to be done so I said go for it. We said Friday 10-7-2014 and they showed up with new parts about 8am and
they did not leave until the parts were installed at about 3pm.
So for about $2500 [discount service and new parts] which I believe is a good price, it is done.
The new furnace and water heater look great and they left the install area cleaner then when they arrived
I have already scheduled and paid for the next year fall turn-up, on my older brother advice, so I should only have to worry about the furnace filters for the next 20 or so years.

My brother's house had a leak in the front that we weren't sure how to handle, so I called Einstein Plumbing Boise since I used them before for a similar plumbing type issue. When I spoke to Karen over the phone and explained what the problem was, she went over the possible costs with me, and also explained that it could be an issue for a Boise landscaper instead, but they were happy to send someone over if I was comfortable paying for the service call. I decided it was probably worth it and she told me that her man would be over within the next 3 hours.

Ryan arrived about an hour later and was very patient with me as I was dealing with a phone call at the time. He used the time I was trying to end my call to walk around the house and do an initial inspection, so by the time I finished my call he already had some idea of what could be wrong. He then ruled out anything else that could be causing the water meter to run and isolated the leak - we looked under sinks, checked the toilets and inspected the hose bibbs and sprinkler systems around the entire property. It was during this inspection that I saw the kitchen drain pipe was very rusted and moldy, and pointed it out to Ryan.

Ryan finished isolating the cause of the front yard's leak, told me that he could fix it, but added it would probably be cheaper to have the landscaper take care of it rather then a plumber in Boise, or to take a look at it ourselves if we felt up to it. He said he could charge 1/2 of the service call if we decided not to have him do the repair work - but since he was already there, he also mentioned that he could replace the kitchen drain pipe for around $150 or more (depending on how bad it ended up being). After calling up my brother to confirm he was comfortable with that plan, we decided to deal with the front yard leak on our own and have Ryan fix the kitchen drain. Ryan, The Boise plumber shut off the water to the front irrigation so that way we wouldn't have the leaking water anymore and can get around to fixing it later.

The kitchen p-drip and drain pipes were so badly corroded that when Ryan touched it they snapped off! He already had a bucket underneath before he did that so there wasn't any mess thankfully. As he continued working he saw that the pipes were originally installed incorrectly. I asked if that had led to the corrosion and he confirmed it was a possibility. So I asked Ryan to go ahead and fix the piping so everything was installed correctly by a great Boise plumber.

He did the job quickly and the area under the kitchen sink looks 100% better now! If he hadn't done the job when he did, I'm almost certain that pipe would have burst and I'd had a disgusting mess to clean up; I'm really lucky he did such a thorough inspection! The final cost was under $150. Will use over and over again as long as i live in Idaho.

I give 4/5 stars because i feel 5 stars should only be reserved for when a compnay is absolutely perfect. Einstein plumbing boise however did do very good. I needed nothing more then a minor fix on one of my toilets.

Einstein is great! Had a leaky faucet, tried to fix it by myself didnt have much success. Einstein came out the very next day and fixed it in 20 minutes. Plus added a one year warranty. Great service tech. Friendly phone customer service.
