Freequently Asked Questions

Why should I hire a licensed Plumber?
The licensing board for plumbing is not there to prevent people from becoming plumbers. It’s purpose is to uphold and enforce the standards and codes set forth which protect your family and neighbors. By hiring a licensed professional you ensure that someone competent and familiar with all code requirements is working in your home or business.
How big is the project of replacing a tub?
It is large. It requires getting into the guts of your plumbing. While you have things opened it makes sense to replace the waste overflow and the faucets as well.
Can you use a snake to clear a tub drain?
You can’t get a snake down the drain hole. You’ll need to remove the overflow plate from the wall of the tub and pull the stopper out of the wall. If you’re lucky you’ll find your clog right there at the end of the mechanism.
Why does re-piping my home with new copper pipe make sense?
The short answer is prevention. Here in L.A. the majority of homes were built before 1980. That’s at least 30 years of corrosion and rust building up. When pipes burst the expense can be astronomical. Even before that though, it causes low water pressure, water contamination and leaks.
What about Plastic over copper?
Over time plastic can become brittle / flimsy. This can lead to early breakage or sagging in lines. Plastic has to be glued which takes time and is subject to deterioration. Copper lasts much longer and can be soldered and checked immediately. Plastic does not bond well with metal, so connections to things like your water heater become likely fail points.
What is the clunk when i turn on my faucet?
More often than not this is just a loose washer within the faucet. If you take it apart look for the screw that goes with the washer. If you can’t find both turn the water back on to see if you can flush them out.

    Excellent service!

    They were the first to respond to my quote request on line. From our first on-line messages to the time the leaky bathtub faucet was fixed, it took only a couple of hours. The man that came by (John, I think) was punctual, focused, and straight to the point, which I appreciate. He quickly fixed the leaky faucet, showed me what had been wrong with the previous part, and left absolutely no mess behind. It was basically the ideal home-fix-it experience, especially because the price for the service was the most reasonable for the service performed. I highly recommend Cali Rooter & Plumbing. Thank you for your prompt and quality service!

    Cali Rooter did an amazing job with our plumbing issues for the kitchen in the new townhouse we just moved into. The response time was immediate and they made sure to make the visit work with my busy schedule. It is a breath of fresh air to experience excellent service these days and I'm just glad all my concerns are now taken care of. Couldn't say enough good things with how satisfied we are with their work.

    Don't even bother calling other plumbers, these guys are the best! Had guests coming to visit, so of course my bathtub got clogged the day before their arrival and nothing I did could unclog it. Called Cali and they were able to get someone to me within a couple hours, and on a Sunday even! Oganes was extremely professional, very nice, and he had my tub back up and running within literally 5 minutes! Will only use Cali from now on and would give them more than 5 stars if I could!

    These guys are top notch!! Called to give a heads up 15 minutes before he arrived, diagnosed the problem right away, and because it was so minor he didn't even charge us. What a good dude. Will totally call Cali Rooter & Plumbing again next time we have any plumbing issues.

    John was so helpful both over the phone and over email. I explained to him my situation and he was honest, direct, and responsive. You could tell he's seen a lot in his day and is an expert at what he does. I definitely felt like I was in good hands. Thanks, John!

    This company is tops!  Look no further.  Great first experience.  We're old so we have years worth of plumbing dilemmas.  We called them, they gave us a one hour window.  At the top of the hour of that window Simon called to say he'd be over in 20 min., and he was!  Reasonable prices too.  Service call was $135 in April 2018.  
    Simon, is a nice, nice man.  He took care of a plugged bathtub and a pipe leak within minutes.   We are making them our designated plumbers from now on.

    John and his team are phenomenal. As a rental property owner, I need someone dependable and fast; someone I can trust, someone willing to come out at a moment's notice, and great at communicating with myself and the tenants. And most of all, someone who knows exactly what he's doing. He has saved my butt several times over, and I highly recommend him especially for the most complicated jobs.

    Take for example two weeks ago. On a Friday evening, I received a text from a tenant saying there was raw sewage coming out from one of the clean-outs. I called John and described the situation. It looked really bad ... sewage everywhere on the driveway. He gave me a prognosis of best and worst case scenarios, and told me that everything would be ok ... nothing that he's not done before. Within an hour, John was at the property doing an inspection even though it was already dark out. From the initial inspection, he said he'd need to return the next day to do a hydrojet and sewer cam to see where the back-up was, and then he could tell me what needed to be done. The next day, bright and early, he hydrojetted the sewer line and discovered that it was broken in several place and sent me several photos. The sewer cam photos looked really bad, and there was now even more sewage everywhere on the driveway from the hydrojetting. I wasn't sure how I'd clean up the mess. What should I wear? However, I was extremely grateful that John's team cleaned up the sewage after doing the inspection and leaving for the day.

    John recommended underground sewer replacement, which would save us from from tearing up landscaping including most of the driveway, a deck and new privacy fence. It also saved on manual labor, and enabled him to complete the job in 1 day. John arrived with his crew on a Sunday, with 7 or 8 people and two vans! I was a bit shocked by the manpower. The crew spent most of the day digging through concrete to make 3 huge trenches to access and replace the old ceramic sewer line. They then pulled through modern plastic pipe underground. By early evening, I had a new sewer line, and I was relieved to see the team busy patching up the trenches with new concrete. I was really impressed by their quality of work, the fact I didn't have to deal with any BS, and how quickly they could get things done.

    John will always be the first guy I call if I have another plumbing problem. I've used other plumbers before: what has often been the case is that they give you a prognosis of the situation, they start to do work, and then the problem quickly escalates into something much bigger than what was anticipated. John will tell you how it is in the beginning so you know what you're getting into, and if a hiccup does come along, he will take care of it. I feel extremely grateful that I found him.

    Quick service within 3 hours of initial contact. they came around 6pm and didn't try to overcharge even though it was past 5pm. Cleared the mainline in my apartment building and advised tenants of the problem. Would definitely do business with again. They seem a lot more eager and willing to accommodate than other companies I called. Thanks for the quick service, would def do business with them again
