Over the last few months, I began noticing some strange behavior from my home’s water supply. Hot water was slow to come and very quick to run out, much to the annoyance of a lengthy shower enthusiast such as myself.
Before long, it began feeling like the hot water was running out quicker and quicker every day. Finally, about a month ago, the hot water stopped flowing completely, and I was stuck with the indignity of shivering through a quick rinse and rubdown before fleeing to the warmth of a towel.
I checked the pilot light and did a quick Google search of quick fixes, none of which came to much use. With the chilly winter months quickly approaching, I knew I just needed to bite the bullet and start shopping around for a reliable plumber – a rare commodity here in San Diego.
Over the past few years, I’ve enlisted the help of several plumbing contractors, with each experience being worse than the last. Unresponsive, consistently tardy, and often tacking on extra fees that border on fraud – it’s safe to say I was dreading what new horrors awaited me with this newest company.
Then a funny thing happened – the plumber, California Plumbing, came on time, was courteous, found the issue, and fixed it within a week. No hidden fees, no unreasonable attitude, just a straightforward service call, and the problem was gone.
I was shocked, and started looking into the company a little deeper. They came recommended by a friend, so I hadn’t looked too hard into their reviews, and what I found there didn’t surprise me. Here’s a quick sample:
I was recently introduced to California Plumbing by word of mouth. I was happy to hear a pleasant voice on the other line who was able to get a plumber to me right away. My faucet was leaking and I tried to repair myself (which was not a good idea). Chico arrived on time, clean uniform, nicely groomed and well mannered. Excellent service. Made repairs promptly, cleaned up and was in and out in under an hour. Prices were reasonable. I would highly recommend this company and Chico any day.-Crys Robles, Google Review
10/10 for an overall fantastic experience. Can’t believe I’m writing a review about plumbing but felt it was only right to give credit where it’s due. These guys are no hassle, respectful professionals that do not push added costs or services – instead they are responsive and on time, diagnose the issue and explain to you what the problem is AND how it can be fixed. I felt informed and confident in my decision to move forward with their services and am so thrilled they did not disappoint. My issue was resolved SAME day with their excellent technician Robert. He answered all of my questions and made me feel comfortable having a stranger in my home working to resolve plumbing issues far beyond my own ability to YouTube fix myself. I’d recommend this company to any of my friends/family/colleagues in the city of San Diego.-Sophia Zangara, Google Review
Safe to say, this is one of the few reliable and effective plumbing companies in the area and it’s no wonder they’re making a major name for themselves in San Diego. If you’re in the area and need plumbing services, look no further than California Plumbing.
