A Premature End To Pool Season?!

A Premature End To Pool Season?!

July marks the official start of the hot, dry season in southern California after a cloudy May and April. This means families all over the southland are finally putting their pool heaters to work after half a year or more of dormancy.

Unfortunately, if those families are anything like mine they’re going to find that something has gone terribly wrong during that period of low usage. In this humble reporter’s case, the pool heater was found to be malfunctioning at the same time the air conditioner was on the fritz – a double whammy for an unusually warm summer.

With summer quickly passing by and an extended family filled with kids expecting play time in the pool on their way, desperate action was needed. This reporter leaped to find a plumber that could provide a quick and efficient water heater repair, pronto!

For the most part, however, there were no plumbers that felt the same level of urgency. We made appointment after appointment, and the workers that bothered to show up at the appointed time either gave us ridiculous estimates or said they couldn’t help.

After almost giving in to despair, we just happened to find what we would soon discover to be the best plumbers in San Diego – California Plumbing. Widening our search area on Yelp, their testimonials really caught our eye despite it being a little farther away:

Chico gave me the best experience I’ve ever had with a home repair. He was very knowledgeable on what was covered by the HOA and what needed to be covered by me and he carries a very expert and professional attitude. He communicated everything he was doing to my plumbing and now both my master and guest sink are working perfectly! He even gave me some helpful tips on preventing the issue from happening again. Thanks, Chico you’re the man!

My shower wasn’t releasing hot water and it was due because of a faulty dip tube. My boiler was also dealing with low pressure and I had no idea as to how to repair the issue without worsening it. I want to thank Joseph especially for helping me fix these issues in a short time. He answered all the questions I had for him (there were are few, not gonna lie haha). I don’t leave a lot of reviews, but this was an excellent experience, and if anyone is in need of a good Plumbing service, these guys are it.

We moved to OB in 2020. Immediately after moving in, we proceeded to begin a very intensive remodel project. California Plumbing has been and continues to be with us every step of the way. In this complex and covid-19 delayed remodel, they have essentially replumbed the entire house. At every stage they have shown us the utmost courtesy, respected our needs to live and work in a construction site, and performed flawless work. I strongly recommend California Plumbing for projects large and small, for repairs, for service, and for construction.
