Review: Water Softener Installation And Repair Service. Replaced old, barely functioning softener system.
Our water softener stopped functioning properly after 12+ years of use. After a search on Angie's List we contacted Bleakley Plumbing.?Firstly, very friendly and responsive phone communications from Rachelle at the office. She promptly sent Jon the technician to assess our softener system. Jon is extremely knowledgable (also very friendly) and after some tweaking and ?testing we came to the conclusion that?this was not a repair job and that the system would be replaced. The price was spot-on, so we made a deposit, Bleakley ordered the system and within a week Jon returned, performed a beautiful installation. We now have a perfectly running water softener system. This is no small feat given that our well produces enough iron to build a locomotive with. We could not recommend Bleakley more highly:

I have used Russell B. Bleakley Plumbing and Heating, Inc. for over ten years. He did all our plumbing work when we finished our basement and installed a new full-bath. His staff is professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and neat. Always, "booties" on the feet before entering and clean-up is impeccable. You pay for quality service and Bleakley delivers every time! I highly recommend them for all your plumbing needs.

They did a good job. They were fast and did a very professional installation.

Replaced 2 hose bibs so they were frost proof, 2 indoor valves, and pulled a pipe further into the house to prevent freezing.
We were concerned since there a slight leak in the outdoor spigots and didn't want it to freeze the indoor pipes - called Russells and the dispatcher was very responsive, friendly, and got back to me promptly. John the plumber came out to take a look, gave me an estimate right then and there and proceeded with the work. Everything we needed to have done was effectively finished and gave us peace of mind. Would use again.

They fixed a severe plumbing issue in our kitchen sink and replaced the faucet and all the piping and hardware.

Installed new toilet, sink, vanity (a little more expensive than I expected) - however, he went over and above the job doing details the contractor missed. He's definitely a keeper!

We had previously hired another plumber to clear the drain, and they managed to clear it for a week before it became clogged again. We then hired this company and the plumber took the time to figure out what was wrong with the drain (clog far down the line) and explain the options/challenges/etc. He went down to the cellar to examine pipes down there to see why the clog wouldn't budge (other plumber did not do that). He was able to unclog the tub and it has been working perfectly since. Price was great (compared to what others charge to unclog a drain).

Found cause of leak in downstairs ceiling was from upstairs toilet. Improvised method to seat toilet securely and re caulked toilet. Plumber was professional, courteous, and well spoken. I was thrilled he put on protective foot wear every time he entered the house so as not to track in snow.

I had a leaking drain pipe behind wall. They opened up the wall and replaced a 4' section of the 4" cast iron pipe with a pvc insert. The pipe was in a closed wall with difficult access. John was very careful to do as little damage to the surrounding areas as possible. Because he couldn't access the joint easily without taking down both sides of the wall, he improvised a way to break the joint and remove the pipe from only one side. Though harder for him, the process will allow me to patch only one side of the wall instead of both, and I won't have to repair and replace kitchen tiling, a cabinet and the central run of wiring. I'm making it seem simpler than it was! I am very grateful for his determination to do the repair correctly, but with the least disruption.
Because he only accessed the pipe in one spot, he didn't need to break into the floor in the upstairs bathroom, nor did he have to open up the basement. The original estimate of $2000-3000 would have covered all of that work, but in the end, the repair only came to $900.
The initial estimate was scheduled within a day and the repair was completed within the week. The place was spotless when he left. I can't imagine a better situation or treatment. Highly recommended!

He had to reroute a sewage line. It went well. He came when he said he would and did the job. He left things neat and I haven’t had any problems since then.

They fixed a pipe on my well because the water was leaking onto my grass. They also did some other work in the house. They cleaned some drains and installed a faucet for me. They were prompt with their service. They came right away and worked all day to fix. They were excellent. They were very good. They gave me a firm estimate and I would highly recommend them. Very professional! They were exceptional. I have recommended them to family. I thought it was going to cost me more. I was pleased with the price.

Replaced existing gas line to pool heater w/new steel pipe above ground and test and connect to pool heater.Fantastic! After some confusion regarding the scheduled date of the estimate, we were a little hesistant, but so glad that we went with Russ. He was more than 1/2 less of the price of another estimate we obtained and did fantstic and professional work. He also came to our house a few days later to make the final connection after the pool heater arrived later than scheduled. My husband is a mechanical engineer and very picky about work that is done in our home and he could not be more thrilled with Russ. We definitely plan to him in the future.

Our hot water heating system was clogged and inadequate. The over-flow valve was overflowing into the basement. This plumber installed some copper piping and installed a new indirect fired water heater. He also installed a new pressure relief valve and a cost saving device that will monitor our fuel usage. Best of all, he was able to significantly increase our hot water pressure.
We have used Russell Bleakley for all our plumbing needs for more than 20 years and three different houses. We are always completely happy with his response to our needs and his work. It went very well overall. Our hot water heating system was clogged and inadequate. The over-flow valve was overflowing into the basement. We called Russell and he came by within a few hours after we called to assess the situation. The next day, Russell installed some copper piping and installed a new indirect fired water heater. He also installed a new pressure relief valve and a cost saving device that will monitor our fuel usage. Best of all, he was able to significantly increase our hot water pressure. His assisstant stopped by the next day to see how everything was.

He re installed a water softening system about 6 months ago. He has been servicing us for about 12 years now for our plumbing needs. He is very dependable, has great costs. He is flexible and makes himself available whenever we need him. From huge projects to small leaks. They are very nice people. We would highly recommend him to anyone. We will continue to use him in the future.

They replaced a lot of the piping with TFC in the basement. They put in a new faucet assembly in the kitchen. They put a new modine heater in the barn. They did a whole bunch of different things.
I felt it was expensive, but I really thought they knew what they were doing. Overall, it was excellent. I built trust with them.

Had a oil burner have an electric component malfunction intermittently; very difficult to diagnose, but Russell came down on short notice and diagnosed the the difficult problem and got me up and running on a very cold day.

They come for our annual water treatments. They have also fixed a plumbing emergency, a pipe busted in the basement. I think they are wonderful. They show up on time. They are clean. Russell always says something on the phone that makes me smile. We have been with them for about 5 years. We have confidence in their professionalism. They know what they are doing. They always do a complete job and do the job right.

They put a tank-less water heater in the basement. They put a radiator in the basement. They replaced a broken water pipe. They were able to trouble shoot my furnace. They did a lot of research to fix the problem. They also increased the water pressure in the bathroom. I used them for many years and was always satisfied with their work. They are always reliable. They give good advice. They are a good company. They would call me after service and see if everything was to my standards. If not, they would come back out.

Comments: "They did great work for us - installed a watersoftener, a waterheater and fixed a low pressure problem. Very nice crew - I will hire them again."

I hired Russell Bleakley to install a hot water heater, a water softener and a new filter.
I also had a problem with the water pressure which they resolved separately. Jon, a junior plumber, came and gave me a good estimate and a discount if they get all the jobs. I hired them a couple of weeks later and they scheduled the installations for 10 days later. There was one change of the appointment which was not problematic for me. Everything was done in one day - the water heater, the filter and the water softener.
I am happy with all the services performed and will hire them again. My only concern is that they used plastic pipes instead of copper to keep the price law. Jon assured me that it will last long and meets the code requirements.

Most recently we had a leak on our baseboard heating and they had to repair it and they also worked on a toilet in the past. They came promptly when we called, explained what needed to be done, gave the price and held to it, and the problems were resolved to our satisfaction in both cases that we used them.

They put in a new bathroom. They did both installation and repairs throughout the house. They did plumbing in the whole home, 3 bathrooms. They replaced pipes. They fixed my dishwasher.They were very good. I had no problems. They were on time and clean. They are very upscale plumbing company. The cost had to be reasonable. I lived in Carmel, NY for 25 years and he was my guy! I have referred them to other people.

Russell came right away when I noticed the leak. Because the heater was less than 6 yaers old, he pursued reimbursement under the manufacturer's warranty and didn't bill me until it was received. I only paid for the labor and shipping charges. Russell has been my plumber for 20 years and I wouldn't use anyone else. He has even come on a frigid Sunday afternoon when we had a problem with our heat.

They installed a hot water heater and did some plumbing work. We were satisfied with their work. They do good work. We have called them a couple of times. We had a good experience. Everything is still working.
