Juan was very good. He showed and explained me why is my kitchen drainage is clogging. I thought I can clear the clogging myself without a professional, but when I saw U-shave pipe is clear, I knew I need a help. And it is my luck or not, those stuff happen on weekend. Almost all plumbers want to charge 50% more for weekend job, this honest guy is not. I was so happy when I confirm the estimated price for the work. He came on time completed the work. I highly recommended.

Yes, he is a licensed contractor, bonded and insured.

I highly recommend to anyone.

This guy is NOW my go to plumber!! I can’t explain how relieved I was after my first meeting with Juan. 1) He came on time and gave me a heads up call when he was coming 2) He did not treat me like I was a stupid female who knew nothing about plumbing 3) He did not over charge me. 4) He came out on a Saturday at 8:30 AM. 5) He took the time to test and find the water shut off valves for me when it had nothing to do with the repair I had to make ( I had two other plumbers at the building prior who could not find the main water shut off valve) 6) He gave me several options for fixing the backup I had and told me if the first option did not work (removing toilet and snaking line), he would not charge me and would give me an estimate of the the cost of the second option.

Being a female who manages over 50 apartment units and a new owner of a duplex in Owner, the most valuable tools to a property manager is having vendors who are reliable, professional and give a fair price. I am so glad I listen to Yelp reviews and called this guy first.

Juan and his assistant were in and out in under an hour. It was a run of the mill job that needed that extra mile of expertise (the seal was 1/2 in lower because of granite work). They came on a Sunday and were on time. The rate was good, the work was good…I’d recommend them to anyone



Juan Rivas was as good as it gets.  I had a clogged toilet and called at 2pm. He was there at 5pm. He called prior to coming to give me a heads up, he was respectful (took off his shoes prior to coming into the house) Fixed the problem and charged me a VERY good price.
He is frequently in the San Ramon/Danville/Alamo area too.

I called California Rooter and Plumbing (Juan is the man), they were here fast, did a thorough inspection to find the problem, and fixed it extremely well.  They didn’t stop with the usual fixes, they had the machines and expertise to tackle the base cause of the plumbing problem- they didn’t just “put a band aid” on it.  Watching the trenchless drain go in was fun; they had it done in about an hour.  They have all the new tools, scoping cameras, and better yet- smarts.
My house has a small crawl space, are you kidding me, Juan knocked it out of the park!
I recommend them highly, everyone I met was professional, kind, and knew what they were doing.

I am a business woman and appreciate good customer service and a job well done and Frank and his men provided just that…. A job well done!   Frank explained the job that was to replace the old sewer pipe without having to dig up my landscape and install a new clean out.  I watched the whole process and it is remarkable and perfect for houses like mine that are on a hill. They did great work for a fair cost which is all I ask for at the end of the day.  I highly recommend California Rooter and Plumbing

Juan was just here and he was outstanding.  We have a real bad drainage on our patio and Juan was able to help us locate where the problem was in the pipes.  So instead of having to tear up all of our granite patio to look for the problem, we now have a much better idea of where to start and where the break in the line is. I’ve had multiple plumbers out here and none of them were able to figure this out.  He also gave me a fantastic deal on price! Will be using them for my plumbing issues going forward.  Great job.
