Bakersfield Plumbing Co. Inc Since 1910
I would like to reassure anyone who has ever doubted the existance of honest, old-fashioned service in Bakersfield.This is extremely important to me since I have had my share of dealings with "service" people who seem to take every opportunity to take advantage of consumers who lack knowledge of all things requiring repair. So when I set out to find a plumber, I searched all available means to find a company who would treat me fairly. The name that kept coming up from credible sources and friends of friends was Bakersfield Plumbing Company. They have been in business for over 100 years. The owner, Tony, is one in a lineage of honest plumbers. He is analytical in his thinking, which I am sure has helped make him the master problem solver that that he has become. I watched him agonize over the dilema of my home. I could tell he was not looking for a quick-fix. Instead, he took into consideration all aspects of my sewer problem, as well as the financial burden it would leave on me. His solution was sincere and equitable and done the right way. His state of the art equipment saved me hundreds of dollars. Every unexpected glitch was handled professionaly and seemlessly. All work was completed correctly the first time. Everything was city inspected and finished in more than reasonable time.Peace of mind for a job done with the earnestness that Tony would have done if he were working on his own home, was a comfort. It did much to restore my faith in mankind. I truly felt a century of experience and integrity with Bakersfield Plumbing Company. I have a feeling that Tony's dad is looking down on him saying..."Another job well done, son."

Thomas Plumbing And Affordable Drain Service
We had a horrid plumbing issue - on a weekend no less. Due to reviews on the Internet, I called THOMAS PLUMBING AND AFFORDABLE DRAIN SERVICE. He was at my house in less than an hour and was helpful, effective, efficient and polite. I asked if he could cut off the bolts that had never been cut off by hubby and he took care of that. No extra charge. He was still under an hour and no extra charges! I'd give Thomas Plumbing a 5 star rating. I highly recommend them and will call them immediately if/when I need a plumber again. Their number is 587-6788. I felt I got more than my money's worth. He also gave me a $5 senior discount. Not much - but 5 bucks is 5 bucks! I used Ron's Plumbing in the past and felt like I got ripped off. Remember - THOMAS PLUMBING AND AFFORDABLE DRAIN SERVICE! Call 587-6788.

Well I had a problem with my Moen shower valve. I was planning on fixing it myself but just did't want to spend $50 on a one time tool. So I saw the high rating on West Coast Construction Plumbing. I called and Bryan said he would be right out there. He replaced the valve but it kept leaking. He had a job to do on the east side. He said that he would pick up another valve. Well he installed it and the problem was fixed. He was Professional and very quick to come out and fix my problem. I highly recommend West Coast Construction Plumbing. If I have any other plumbing issues I will be giving them a call.

What an amazingly helpful company! They went over and above my expectations in handling my water heater issue. From the customer care rep Jenna who was pleasant and understanding, to the knowledgeable technician Mitch who took the time to explain the whole process and make sure I was comfortable with the repair, I couldn't have asked for better service. Because of this when I needed upgrade my tired old faucets I had them back out to install them. I received again prompt, polite, and professional service. If you want care and attention to detail this is the company to choose.

I do not write to many reviews,this is only my second. But when someone does a great job I have to say something. My water heater broke around 10:30p.m. within 20 min. elite was at my door to stop the flood. First thing in the morning he was back with a water heater. I cannot be happier with there work .I have used them a few times and would recommend them to everyone, if you want a good job at a fair price give him a call.

Benjamin Frankling Plumbing
I am very happy with the new water heater I purchased from Benjamin franklin Plumbing. The price i was given included replacing all the little parts and water connectors. My other estimate was less but everything was extra. By the time I added everything up the cost was more and they where not as professional as Benjamin Franklin Plumbing. I am very happy I chose them.Brian

Alfredo's Drain Cleaning
I was very pleased with this business. The appointment was set for between 11:00a and 1:00p. They were there at 8:30a and done within 15min. Personable, professional and early you can't beat that for customer service. If I have a complaint it would be that whatever was removed from the drains was left for us to clean up.

Tips & Advices
The following tools and common household objects can be used to clean drains at home:
  • A plunger
  • A drain snake
  • Baking soda
  • Vinegar
  • Grease-fighting dish soap
Homeowners can mix boiling water with any of the last three products to break up grease and grime.
The main ingredients in clog removal liquid products are sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite. According to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, both break down into relatively harmless components when it comes into contact with water or soil. However, both substances cause mild irritation to skin and internal tissues.
Also known as a drain auger, a drain snake is a coiled device around ΒΌ-inch thick. To use a drain snake, put the end into the entrance of the drain. Turn the handle to force the snake deeper, using extra pressure to force it through the bend in the pipe. Keep turning until the snake hits the clog, then either pull the snake and remove the obstruction or force it through. Once the snake is out of the drain, run the water on full blast for a few minutes to ensure the obstruction is completely removed.
Plungers don't damage residential pipes, but the force created by the act of plunging weakens the seal between the toilet and the floor.
Many plumbers, both local businesses and nationwide chains, offer emergency or same-day services.
