Water Heater Installation or Replacement
Tino was fantastic! He replaced my hot water heater yesterday and he was thorough, he kept us informed of what he was doing, he was patient while I asked a lot of questions. He definitely knows what he is doing. Lastly, he is really a nice person - very kind and polite. We are delighted. Tino is not only a highly skilled plumber, but he provides amazing service.Nov 15, 2017Verified
Plumbing Drain Repair
Yes, Tino replaced a disposal at our house and did a good job. More than than that, he responded to the request quickly, was on the job with an hour and one half and explain to this non-plumber how and why he did certain things. He check under the sink for other parts that may need to be changed. I could not be any happier that I hired him. I will hire him again when needed. He deserves a five star!Dec 3, 2016Verified
Plumbing Pipe Repair
Tino was the first to call me regarding my emergency repair. He was very polite and accommodating over the phone as I explained what I needed (replace water pressure regulator and house supply line shut-off valve), and that I needed it done that Saturday evening. He called back a few minutes later with a very reasonable quote and said he could be at my house in about an hour, even though he had already worked a full 6 days that week. I had called a couple of the big name plumbers in town who provide repair services 24/7, but they wanted 2 hours minimum at a ridiculously high rate per hour since it was after 6 PM on a weekend. Tino's bid (including materials) was less than what these other guys would have charged just to show up at my doorstep. Tino got right to work when he arrived and clearly explained everything he needed to do. I was able to not worry about anything and eat dinner while he worked. His workmanship was excellent and he continued to maintain his great upbeat attitude the whole time he was working. I'll call him first if I ever need any other plumbing work in my house!Feb 21, 2017VerifiedCALIFORNIA PACIFIC PLUMBING's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?THE DIFFICULTY LEVEL OF EACH PLUMBING PROJECT WILL DETERMINE IF IT WILL BE BASED ON A SET PRICE OR IF IT WILL BE BASED ON TIME & MATERIALS.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?TO START OFF WITH, I WILL CONTACT THE CUSTOMER BY PHONE AND I WILL LISTEN TO THEIR PLUMBING DILEMMA AND GIVE THEM MY PROFESSIONAL ADVICE AND RECOMMENDATION ON WHAT STEPS (BY CODE) ARE HIGHLY RECOMMENDED IN CORRECTING THEIR CURRENT PLUMBING ISSUE AT A REASONABLE RATE. OTHER TIMES I WILL SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET WITH THE CUSTOMER. I WILL THEN BE ABLE TO INSPECTED THE PROBLEM UP FRONT AND GET A BETTER IDEA ON WHAT IT WILL TAKE TO GET THE JOB DONE.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I COMPLETED THE REGIONAL OCCUPATION PROGRAM IN ALL THREE PLUMBING COURSES AS AN A-STUDENT. I WAS ALSO TRAINED BY THE LOCAL UNION 230 IN SAN DIEGO AS A CERTIFIED JOURNEYLEVEL PLUMBER.
