Review Date: 02/02/2021 | Author: Laurie M., Oceanside, CA

Comments: Very friendly, very responsible

Review Date: 12/14/2020 | Author: Craig H., Escondido, CA

Comments: When I first talked to Al he walked me through some items to see if I could do the repair myself. Once we figured out the level of the repair needed he immediately came over the next morning. By noon that day he had replaced my water heater, brought it up to code and charged a very fair amount. He also removed lines and capped them that were no longer in use that was not related to the water heater replacement. Al is old school and I very much appreciated his honesty as well as trying to work through the problem. Two other companies, they remain anonymous but both are on TV, came out and didn't look at the water repair heater to repair but just gave me an extremely high cost to replace. I have found my "go to" plumber. Thank you Al1

Comments: I called Al and he responded right away. He didn't try to oversell me anything and cleaned up the job just right. I will definitely bring him back.

Review Date: 11/30/2020 | Author: Felipe R., VISTA, CA

Comments: ABC was the first to call and inform me in a lot of things and in educated me on on the water heater I would recommend everybody he's called me up later on and let me know that if everything was going all right I think he's a class act think everybody should go to him.

Review Date: 11/13/2019 | Author: Jason V., Carlsbad, CA

Comments: You never quite know what to expect when you hire someone to do a job. I knew I was getting a professional, but I hired the best! Allen was the first to return my call and arrange to come to fix my leaking shower. The value of the level of service is fantastic. He and Stacy were efficient in their use of time but did not rush. They made sure that all of the possibilities were covered and fixed everything the first time. I expected to pay double what I was charged. ABC Plumbing will be my go-to plumbing contractor for honest high-quality work. I could not be more pleased with my experience.

Review Date: 11/11/2019 | Author: Miki K., Encinitas, CA

Comments: Sunday afternoon pipe started leaking from ceiling. Al was actually the only plumber who called us via the Home Advisor project request. We are fortunate he did. He spent a lot of time with us attempting to help us identify and get leak isolated should it be the fire sprinklers It was not, but we appreciated his guidance. He told us he would be over the next morning. He was able to pinpoint the leak and work from atop a ladder to get the bad section of pipe cut out and new piece welded. He was neat and prepped the area in the kitchen with drop clothes , covers etc. we had a trash can his helper used to catch any debris and water. It took about 2 1/2 hours and it was done Very happy with his work He’s old school and brings decades of experience with him. He also has a clear understanding of the varied pipe material used throughout the years. Helpful and gave us some important tips before leaving. Highly recommend Al

Review Date: 09/03/2019 | Author: Jim H., Carlsbad, CA

Comments: ABC Plumbing, Al the owner, and his helper were awesome. Super fast response. Great communication! Fixed my hose bib leak inside my garage for a fair price! I'm very satisfied and have asked ABC Plumbing to do additional work in my garage. (Replace my relic pressure regulator). Thanks Al!

Review Date: 07/18/2019 | Author: Dennis H., Encinitas, CA

Comments: I was told by another plumber that my low water pressure was caused by a faulty regulator, which needed replacing. Al, the owner of ABC, investigated and explained his logical approach to me while he was working. The conclusion was that my problem was caused by my water softener, saving me an unnecessary expensive repair. The next time I have a plumbing problem, I'll call ABC.

Review Date: 09/28/2017 | Author: Joan S., Carlsbad, CA

Comments: Al Cyr the owner is as professional as it gets! He worked very hard at unclogging my drain that had a root mass blockage from a ficus tree. Unfortunately, he could not cut the root because it was too large and suggested a company who has the equipment to cut through the root mass and view it through a camera. Al was honest, fair and knowledgeable and I would definitely hire him again as well as recommend him.

Comments: ABC Plumbing called within minutes of my on-line request with Home Advisors. They arrived on time and did a great job of fixing the water valve to the refrigerator water/ice maker. Their pricing was in line with other plumbers I have used in the past, in fact, they were a little bit less. Thanks ABC and Home Advisors!

He gives a quote & sticks by it. There was no nickel & dime act once he started the job, like I've seen with so many other contractors. He even called a couple days after he did the work to check on us. I highly recommend him & will definitely use him again.

Comments: ABC Plumbing did a fantastic job with snaking my walk-in shower drain and replacing the toilet bowl parts! The owner, Al, has an impressive amount of years of experience. He runs his entire plumbing business and does all the work. I sensed very easily that he is very passionate about what he does. The knowledge he was willing to share with me regarding the projects I hired him to do as well as the quality in his work was evidence of this. I especially liked how he didn't try to hustle his way into getting more money and jobs out of me. He showed great professionalism and customer service. I would hire ABC Plumbing again in a heartbeat.
