Arthur Brown Plumbing
I don't usually post reviews about anything although I rely on them when looking for businesses. But I was so impressed with this company that I figured I owed it to them. From the moment I called they made me feel like my stupid clogged toilet was the most important thing they had to do. Prompt service, clearly described the problem AND the solution and allowed me to ask as many questions as I wanted. I felt like I had my own personal plumber.I would recommend Arthur Brown Plumbing (in Carlsbad) be the first and ONLY call you make for plumbing services. They have earned my business for life!And yes I am going to place this review everywhere I can!!!

i had arthur brown come out for what we deemed a small job. it was a bigger job than expected and the cost rose with the increase in labor. i was sooo surprised by the cost, but i was more impressed with the owner and his wife who worked with me in good faith to make two payments. Alice the owner was soo sweet that when I recieved my salary, i couldn't wait to pay her. Its an amazing company who does excellent work and who I now am happy to report has a kind heart.

Had plumbing trouble at my work and contacted Roto-Rooter, Vista office. The call to the office was easy and efficient. The technician arrived within the promised hour. He quickly unclogged the toilet and we were up and running back to normal. No complaints, the only disappointment, I now have metal scratch marks in my once sparking white porcelain comode!

One of the best plumbing companies that I have encountered. Gave me the low down on what needed to be done. Gave me a right on price. Not only will I recommend family and friends. But Phil is definitely turning this place around. A+ Plumber that takes pride in his work. Thanks again to Arthur Brown Plumbing.

These guys/gals are honest plumbers!They have come out a couple times in the last several years and cleared my Auto Repair Shop drains. With several opportunities to "up-sell" me, they haven't! I appreciate the professionalism and that they are just a phone call away.

We own a commercial office building and use this company for our annual back flow testing. They are very accommodating and friendly. I think their pricing is fair for the service that they provided for us. We will continue to use them for all of our back flow testing.

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.
