  • Marco/Plumbmate Tools.....

    What's with these people ? I ordered cables over 2 months ago, they said they were on back order and would ship in 10 days. Now they are saying (recorded message) sometime in June.

    I called the Marco factory and they told me they can't get the wire. Funny how Plumbmate Tools has been shut down for around 2 months and are still not taking orders on anything.

    They had originally said they were shut down for inventory, lol !

    Glad I don't own a Marco machine.

    I got them on the phone yesterday but they were claiming computer problems

    which is what all my contacts in the sewer cable business have been saying



    Plumbmate Tools which I believe is Marco's main US distributor has been "closed for inventory" for over 2 months. I called the Marco factory 2 weeks ago and a person there told me they can't get any wire to make the cables.

        I talked to marco today the do not have much in stock but they ship things they have. I have been geting a few calls a day on marco items i have not been able to get all of them from marco. I asked if they were going out of business but she did not know. I used to deal with dorthy in kentucky but she does not answer that number any more. Nobody at marco knows anything about the old items anymore . Marco has made many changes and the catalogs do not help with old items. Marvin

              A friend of mine has had a cable on order since october. It "will ship this week". Every week, for 6 months
              No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                  What is it you want to buy from them? I know Allan J Coleman has a good selection of Marco stuff in stock. He even has a Marco Cable Jet up front.
