Needed to replace septic line from house to tank. The guys did an outstanding job and would recommend them. Thanks again

Saved the day!

Robert was extremely efficient and friendly. I called in the morning to schedule an appointment and was lucky enough to get one that day. He repaired our toilet and garbage disposal. Robert explained to me what was wrong with both items and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend this business.

WOW! Thank you for the stellar review! We appreciate the chance to have earned your business!

Best plumber ever!

Robert did wonderful work in my home. He replaced my kitchen sink, faucet and disposal. The job was done perfectly. He took the time to show me how to reset the disposer, if ever needed, and showed me where my water main was too. He did the work for one-third the price that I was quoted by a national competitor. I definitely recommend Kauer & Son!

WOW! Thanks so much for the stellar review Mrs. Syms! We appreciate the chance to earn your business!

We had THE BEST plumber to our home to fix a sink issue we have dealt with for two years since we bought our home.
NO more back ups. He rebuilt the drain and added a valve and we have had zero issues in over a month. We could not be happier and Kauer & Son is now our go to plumber! Thank you! Thank YOU!

Thanks so much for the review! We sure do appreciate it!!

So happy !

I have been having issues with my plumbing this week. I had the septic pumped thinking it was that but still having issues. My brother in law recommended this company and said they are great. He was right ! Not only were they respectful, they cleaned up, had patience and kept working until my problem was solved. In addition (which shows me they care ) they educated me on what to do and not do for my specific home. They also knew I was in dire need of their services so they let me know if they had a cancellation which they did and it bumped me up 3 days. Would recommend this company to everyone without a doubt !

WOW! Thank you so much for the Review Lisa! We sure do appreciate it and thank you very much for your business!We look forward to being your forever plumber.

 by Tom & Lynn

I have used Kauer & son twice and both jobs have been done with the best quality work and professional customer care. If you want hassle free plumbing work done just call and talk to Kim and then let Bob come out and do his quality work. As easy as that . Thanks again.

Thank you so much Tom & Lynn for the stellar review! We are so happy you are pleased and appreciate the business very much!

 by Connie and Charlene Lauderdale

These guys are professional, friendly and courteous. Their work was excellent and fixed our problem. They left the work area very clean. We highly recommend Kauer & Son and they will be our "go-to" company for any future plumbing issues. Thanks Bob and Chris!

After moving into a home and finding all of the problems that the previous owners hid, or just flat out ignored, we needed a plumber to say the least. I called Robert after having a few quotes that were just too overpriced, or I just thought the person or company was just not right for the quality of work I wanted. Robert was very knowledgeable, very attentitive, and just an overall great guy to talk too. I hired Robert for several jobs, and was very pleased with the quality of work he did. It is very hard to find someone that truly takes pride in the quality of work they do, and I can honestly say he does! I would refer Robert to anybody, one of the best plumbers I've come across. On a side note, I also thought his wife who set up the appointments was very friendly as well.

WOW! Thanks so much for the Stellar review. We sure appreciate the kind words and thank you so much for your business! Robert and Kim Kauer

Great service

Bob came out and did a great job fixing our company drain issues. Bob is always courteous and respectful of the customers facility. Definitely recommend Kauer and Son.

Thank you so much for the great review - We appreciate the business!

 by Josh pearson
Punctual, thorough and clean

I could not be happier with my service. My job was not the easiest to explain, but after a couple of hours trading texts and phone calls, I was confident the job would get done correctly, and for the price we had agreed on over the phone! I could not be happier with the job that was done, everything was explained to me as it was being done, and most importantly there was no mess left behind. I will be calling them again for my sub pump, until then I could not be happier with my service...thank you very much

Thank you so much for the great review - We appreciate the business!

Best Drain Guy in Town!

After having two different companies come in and charge big bucks to get our drain open, I reluctantly called a third company. Kauer & Son. In less than 30 minutes they did what two others could not for half the price! Great people and left the space cleaner than when they found it! Love these guys.

 by Mark McFarland
Awesome Service

Robert and Chris squeezed me in for an appointment on a Tuesday at nearly 5:00 pm. Turns out we needed to rip up part of the mezzanine floor to access the sewer gas leak we were experiencing. They were very committed and determined to finish the job correctly. Stayed till nearly 7:30 pm. THIS COMPANY IS THE BEST!!

Price was very reasonable.

 by Brandon Klanke

First time using Kauer & Son Plumbing today. What a great experience from beginning to end. They were Prompt, knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I will use them in the future and would highly recommended to family and friends.

Awesome plumber!

We have had Kauer & Son Plumbing take care of several issues on our bathroom remodeling job. We are more than pleased with the response time and work. Highly recommended!!!!

I'll never use another company for my plumbing needs.

Kauer and Son Plumbing was my last hope. It started a week ago when every time you turned on or off the water in any area of the house there was a vibrating/knocking noise. I had 2 plumbers come out from large companies and the first told me my pipes were loose and they would have to cut holes in my ceiling and walls. I was devastated. I called another company for a second opinion, they came out and said basically the same thing but in addition, they would sell me two new parts for 900 dollars that might help but they couldn't guarantee it. At this point we figured that we were going to have to let someone put holes in our walls and ceilings. We decided to try one more plumber and called a local family owned company. Bob was great, he thought it sounded like pipes rubbing too but he didn't give up. He kept trying to figure out if there was something else. It turned out that it was the seal and shower valve cartridge in my upstairs bathroom that was causing the water noise to reverberate through the whole house. I can't thank him enough. For about two hundred dollars, it is completely fixed with no holes in my house. I told all my family and friends about this company. I won't use anyone else again!

We found our go-to pros...

Bob is very personable and professional. He arrived on-time and was quick to identify and repair our drain issue (cleared roots in the main). Just plain old honest and reliable service. We will definitely spread the word to our friends and family. Thank you for your top-notch service!

 by Joe Neussendorfer
I would highly recommend Kauer & Son

I would highly recommend Kauer & Son, Inc for your appliance and plumbing repairs and new needs. They are truly a dedicated, sincere, and customer-oriented neighborhood small business. Would definitely use them again without any hesitation. Very reasonable and friendly to boot!

 by Lisa

Very knowledgeable and was able to identify and explain repairs that were needed for a leaky tub! Arrived in a timely manner and was able to get the job done!

Thanks Bob!

The Best

We bought our house 7 months ago and recently learned we had a leak in our basement. That leak was coming from a pipe under our family room floor. As painful of an experience this project has been, Bob and Kim have given us peace. Knowing that we hired someone local who believes in family as well as quality work has allowed us to rest in knowing this part of the project was handled with care. In Bob's words, "If I don't do it the right way, I won't be able to go home and eat dinner with my family. I just won't feel right about it". If you're looking for a plumber you can trust and who does great work then this crew is for you.

 by G Demas

Great customer service and quality of work. Great problem solvers. I highly recommend them. Extremely professional.

 by Gary Tanner

Robert (Bob) was on time, friendly, and got the job done. Keeping this company name and phone number.

 by Sue

Called with a plumbing issue. Robert came and solved the problem quickly and professionally. Checked other toilets and pipes. He was very thorough . I will refer him to family and friends.

 by Jim
New Toilet

I'm sure this wasn't the biggest job Bob has ever done, but he treated it as it was the most important one of day. All I can say is if you want something done correctly, you go to the people who have the same expectations as you. I was raised up to always support our local businesses because one will find these folks to be neighbors who share the same values you do. No matter what my future plumbing needs will be, I will ALWAYS go to Kauer & Son first! (and NO, we're not relatives!!)

Stressed mom with no connections!

This past weekend, during my six year old's birthday party, my kitchen sink completely clogged. It was a disaster that my husband, father and I tried to fix on our own for two days before we finally gave in and realized we needed a professional's help. I panicked as I had heard rumors on what kind of money plumbers charge and how shady they can be. A family member referred us to Kauer & Sons and they were the ONLY company out of SEVEN that we attempted to call that answered promptly and sent someone out immediately. After two days and lots of hard work, Rob fixed the problem, was kind and professional and charged a more than fair price for his work. You could honestly tell he loves what he does and cares about the customers he services! Thank you SO much Rob!

Quick, Proffesnional, Honest, Fair price.

Had work done by Kauer and Son on 7/5/2016. They installed a new gas supply line for my drier into the laundry room, moved a gas line back by three inches where the stove was (so we could push the stove almost all the way back to the wall instead of having it stick out past the counter by several inches), replaced both boiler valves and lines and installed anti-hammer valves for the washer. They were professional and honest and were not afraid of getting into the crawl space (which isn't very pleasant as I have been in the crawl space several times since recently purchasing my home a month ago). Best of all, they did all of the work for a fair price. If you need plumbing work done, I recommend Kauer and Son.

 by Joanne McNeil

Called to get a quote to repair our Septic Line - Received a very professional quote next day outlining everything they were going to do. We received three quoted - They were not the cheapest, but presented the best and we hired them. We are so glad we did. After hearing horrible stories with this same issue from neighbors, we experienced none of that! This was by far a seamless repair and they left our lawn and property so neat and clean. We will call for all or our future needs. Hands Down GREAT EXPERIENCE!

 by David Gasparovich

I bought a laundry tub pump and tried to install myself. The tub was 30 years old and the threads did not align with the pump to support the weight. I thought I would have to spend a $500 or $600 to install properly . Bob came out and through experience and excellent workmanship solved the problem. A very pleased customer.

 by Janet Bekkala

Dealing with Kauer & Son was everything I DID NOT expect when hiring a plumber to fix some fixtures in our home! GREAT experience from start to finish! I highly recommend them and would not call anyone else! I had to wait a few days for my appointment and it was well worth it!

 by Doug Kish

Thank you for coming out and helping us on multiple problems. Very polite and professional. The work is excellent and done with pride and the customer in mind. Reasonably priced and we appreciate the way you treat our dogs. You will definitely be our first call when we have future plumbing needs.

 by Edward Borne

Recommended by someone on Facebook, I gave these folks a try when our toilets needed some repairs. Robert showed up in a clearly marked vehicle, was very neat, covered his shoes, gave our dog a treat and got down to business. In less than two hours, he had our toilets running like new, fixed a dripping faucet, checked our Water Heater and Sump Pump. The cost was very affordable and he was thorough. I would not hesitate to call them again for all of our plumbing needs. GREAT Company.

Fantastic company to work with. It's always nerve wracking to need a plumber and even more so for women who have safety concerns about who you let in your house. Not so with Kauer & Son. First rate folks, personal attention, nice to my dogs, clean and FAST. From my first frantic call to the moment they walked out the door with the job done, I had peace of mind. I hope I don't need them anytime soon, but if I do, I know who to call!

Had the pleasure of using their services for a sump pump that went out during recent heavy rains. They were prompt, and had a good price for a Zoeller Pump. Had them also install a back up pump. Everything done to perfection. Would not hesitate to call them again for any of my plumbing needs.
