If you need a local plumber, consider contacting John at Rubie's plumbing and rooter service.  726-6991.  He was an awesome workman, reasonable, knowledgeable and super helpful to me recently.

Thanks for posting this.

I’ve also been impressed with Tim Kensit of Kensit Plumbing, 650.400.5219, who has helped me out numerous times.

Tim Kensit was also recommended to us by another source. Sadly, he does not return phone calls. We have left him two messages over two weeks. I guess he doesn’t need any new business.

Stay from Bay Area Plumbing and Heating run by Lance Eastman out of San Carlos. He left our water heater and radiant floor heating plumbing in worse shape than he found it.

Still looking for a good plumber that has the specialty skills for radiant floors, preferably local.

George Molina of Miramar Plumbing saved my ass on Christmas Day at the last minute. 726-5524

Thanks for the tip to Miramar Plumbing. They said up front they couldn’t handle our radiant floor heating work, but referred us to Simms Plumbing out of Pescadero 650 879 0739. Elias from Simms came out and diagnosed issue after issue from the previous plumber’s work within 30 minutes. He fixed a water hammer issue right away, and he and the owner, Steve Simms, the following day, came out and diagnosed everything else. They saved us tons of money—BAPH (see prior post) had tried to tell us we needed new pumps at substantial cost. That turned out to be bogus—the system just needed air cleared from the lines and hotter water delivered to it.

The only minor hiccup was that it took awhile to get an invoice and the write-up, but I attribute that to the holidays being in the middle.

I highly recommend Simms.

Oh and by the way, Barry, Kensit Plumbing never did return our calls.
