Yes! We are a licensed plumbing company in the state of California. Our business license number is 820529.

Before hiring any plumber, you should always check that they are licensed. In California, you can use the Contractors State License Board to verify that the company has a valid license.

Yes! When The Free Plumbers first started, we were called North Brothers Plumbing & Rooter. Even though we have a new name, you'll still get the same great service and reliability.

Not quite. But that doesn't mean you're not getting a great value! Here's how it works:
There are a few plumbing services, including all material, that we just can't provide for free. However, roughly 99% of all the plumbing services we offer are free to customers who refer us or have a current Service Agreement membership with us.
All homeowners in our service area will pay no labor or installation costs for plumbing repairs and drain cleaning with a current membership or referral service credits.

All referrals can be submitted to our Contact Us page for a $100 service credit with us for each referral. We'll need your first and last name, service address, cell number and email along with the full name of the person you're referring. Once our records indicate that person has done business with us, we'll notify you that you have a service credit with us and how many you have available to use on your next service call.

You can check out our Plumbing Price List to get an idea of what your costs without material might be.

We have been in the plumbing business since 2003.

If you have a tank-style water heater, it works constantly to keep your water hot. Because of this, gas and electric water heaters generally last until the warranty is up, about 10 to 12 years, even though manufacturers claim they have a life expectancy of 25 years.

If your water heater doesn't get regular maintenance, don't expect it to last beyond 7 or 8 years!

Tankless water heaters are expected to last 20 years or longer, which is pretty accurate because they have more replaceable parts and no tank to rust out.

We specialize in water heater repairs, replacements, upgrades, and installations. Learn more on our Water Heaters page or contact us today to see how we can help you!

If your plumbing system needs repiping or you're building a new home, your two water pipe options are copper and PEX.

PEX pipes are a type of flexible plastic made of strong, cross-linked polymer materials. You often see PEX piping in large red, blue, white, or gray rolls. Most copper pipe is more appropriately called tubing because it's a softer material. It can be used for both hot and cold water.

People choose copper piping because they're concerned about the preconceived dangers of plastic products. It is around 65% more expensive than PEX. On the other hand, people choose PEX because it's more affordable, installs faster, delivers a quieter water flow and resists breaking better.
