    Ruben did an excellent job on a handful of projects. He found a large problem with the pipes under the house and rebuilt them. After showing me pictures of the pipes we decided the best fix would be to replace them all. He replaced some toilets and a couple of bathroom sinks. Everything was done to my expectations. He had a helper with him who was assisting and learning. They worked well together and Matt seemed very eager to learn new things. I am very pleased with the outcome and would definitely call upon Ruben and All Time Plumbing for future needs.

    Mr.Ruben Reyes really knows his stuff he was are 3rd quote for what we thought was a root problem in our pipes and it was like night and day between him and the other plumbers. Not only did he locate a second service pipe that allowed him to snake an addition 40 ft that was unknown to us or the other plumbers but he was by far the best priced and honest of the three. He left us complete satisfy.

    Ruben came over gave me a quote and offered to do it immediately in less than an hour. Since I had to come home during my working hours this was really convenient. He got in down in less time than that, and did a great job. I would recommend him and All Time Plumbing to anyone and I plan on hiring him again when I have future plumbing issues.

    Professional work, but too expensive
    He did a professional job, but he was too expensive. In fact, I told him I used to use Andersen and he said that's where he worked for years. When he pulled out his bill, it was the same "form" as Andersen Plumbing. I will not use him again.
    RUBEN R. Oct 15, 2016

    Hello Michael. I did give you pricing options before you went with the work and you were okay with the price at the time. We are 30% less than Anderson Plumbing. If you have any issues with the value of the work please give us a call. As for the similar form, many companies use the same standard industry form or invoice. We appreciate your business and if you would like to discuss this issue further give us a call. Thank you.

    The pilot light on my water heater was not staying lit. Ruben assessed the problem quickly and was able to fix it by cleaning the burner area. Ruben was prompt and professional and offered great advice regarding our options on water heaters. I would definately call on All Time Plumbing again even though I thought he was a little pricey for this particular job. Thank you Ruben for your kindness, professionalism and courteous manner.

    Ruben provided outstanding service. He was prompt, extremely knowledgeable and professional. He honored the original quote, tested my water pressure and discovered that my regulator was not working. I had it replaced along with having a new water heater installed as the original reason I called. Ruben cleaned up when he finished the job. Excellent experience and performance. I will be sure to recommend him at All Time Plumbing and use again for plumbing issues.

    I want them to remove our leaking water filtration tank and replace a corroded piping in our fire sprinkler. I called All Time Plumbing after calling 2 other "brand name" plumbing companies. One company is going to charge me $42 non refundable fee just to come out and evaluate the job, the other can't even give me a definitive time when they're coming so I can plan my day. So I called All Time Plumbing as a last resort and "oh boy!" I'm glad I did. I explained to Ruben over the phone what I want done, he came over right away to evaluate the job, went to get the parts and fixed my problem right away that same day. That's what I call world class "SERVICE". I'm very happy with the job result and I'll definitely call him again the next time I have a plumbing problems. Only this time he will be the first one I would call.

    Ruben was overall wonderful! He was able to quickly solve our problem and was reasonable as far as pricing. He was professional, timely, and had a great demeaner. Additionally he went above and beyond what we actually needed to check our water pressure and help us solve an unrelated shower issue just because. 5 stars, great guy.

    This is the first time I've used all time plumbing. I was a little leery because he didn't give me a quoted price but I checked them out on Yelp that day. Their prices were reasonable and I would definitely use them again, they had five stars, so I gave them a try. Ruben came out on time and was very knowledgable. He diagnosed my problem quickly and was able to fix the problem .

After gathering some information and a full inspection of her plumbing system it turned out to be that she had a water softener system that some one had turned off. She had a previous plumber that replaced her waterheater and for some reason turned off the softener and didn't turn it back on. It was a simple fix and definitely felt good to fix her problem.
