We were very pleased with Owen Geoghegan Plumbing, as he made numerous repairs to our boiler. His prices are expensive, but we feel that he used his extensive experience to troubleshoot and take the time to more deeply examine the problems. He also spent the time to explain the intricacies of how our boiler functions and to show me the parts that were defective or needed cleaning. Finally, he was the most responsive of the plumbers I contacted.

Thank you Irina for taking the time to write this nice review. I apprecite you for spending the time to understand the complexities of modern high efficiency heating equiptment, our conversations helped get to the underlying problems. Now that the boiler is working properly you should see better efficiency and you should not run out of hot water under normal conditions. Thanks again Irina, Happy Holidays.

I have used Geoghegan Plumbing several times, but this review is for the installation of a new heating boiler. The original system sprung a leak and needed immediate replacement. Owen did a review of the house heating area and suggested I downsized the boiler and install a more efficient system. The new boiler was installed and I have had a chance to evaluate the results. This winter I used far less oil than in other winters and the heat received was excellent.
A quick response, quality service and a fair price are things that come to mind about this company. It's nice to find a company that actually cares about the customer. They would receive (5) five stars for the work performed.

Owen replaced the aging hot water heater in my home as a precautionary measure at my request. He was friendly and professional before, during, and after the job. He arrived on time and gladly spent extra time explaining the system, answering my questions, and assisting with the energy rebate process. I would highly recommend Owen.

Had a leaking water main valve and needed repair.Call town water dept and was told water meter needed replacement.Call plumber to remove ball valve .A new valve is supplied by Town so a new meter could be installed.Mr.Geoghegan Plumbing Co.came on time as promised .I was told that the repair would cost between 500-600 dollars.It took less than an hour to cut out the old valve and install the new one.He recommended adding pressure release tank which was added .Total time on job 1 1/2 hrs. Had to wait 1/2 hour for Town water dept worker to replace meter and turn water back on.Materials used ,6 pipe connectors,4 ft copper pipe,pressure tank,1 clamp.total cost $691.00 .$330 just to show up ,$ 180 pressure release tank,$180 for materials.Never had to deal with this problem before and was told by the Town water dept worker it was not a difficult job or a costly replacment.I think I got taken advantage of seeing that the ball valve and check valve and the meter were supplied by Norton Water dept.Never recommend Owen Geoghegan unless you want to over pay for service.

Sorry you are feel you were taken advantage of with the services I provided by bringing potable water back into your home. I came prepared with all the proper materials to reconnect your water main to your water piping system that was out of service for four days.
I know that your wife was very happy when I was done with my work.
The materials that you listed plus the ones that you missed are not always available at one or any supply house which is why I have a fully stocked truck to avoid driving around in circles looking for parts, the time needed to keep the trucked stocked is built into the repair cost.
As I recall we never waited around for the water department in fact the water department was waiting for the repair to be completed. Nothing ever takes an hour to repair and things do look easy when a professional is performing these tasks, as you should know you had hired a handyman claiming to be a plumber days before who had no idea how to reconfigure the water meter connection, so I am perplexed on how you would compare the price of my services to the price offered by an individual who has no understanding or training in the art of plumbing and surely no understanding of overhead or productivity levels.
The repair performed at your home will likely last 40 to 50 years, if you had hired a trained plumber for the water valve repair that was done approximately 15 years earlier this problem would not have come about.
