Interesting that the last two 2018 comments dovetail with the two 2012 comments. As a plumber, he is excellent. As a professor, he spends much time lecturing, some would say berating, and charges for the time. It cost more than $400 to install a toilet to replace an old one in the same spot. He says he charges $85/hr. It felt like 5 hours, but it was actually much less. in remodeling another bathroom, it took about 1-1/2 hours for a builder to install one where one did not exist before. FOR REAL: he lectured that the reason the toilet got stuck was that I didn't eat enough fiber. I have another toilet that has not needed to be plunged for 6 years. He is about 5'7" in heels and skinny as a rail. I did not have the heart to tell him why his toilet does not get stuck.

I've been a customer of Mr. Thompson for probably thirty years. He likes to give advice, which often slides into a lecture or even a rant. He is not for all tastes. But he loves and cares about his work and usually does an excellent job.
