About your Santa Monica Home or Business

Being that Santa Monica was incorporated in 1886, Santa Monica has some of the oldest buildings in Los Angeles.

It is recommended that you have at least two reputable plumbing company's contact information located with your disaster contacts

Research show that many homeowners and commercial / industrial building owners focus on the cheapest plumbing labor they can find without understanding that this approach will cost them more in the long run. Choosing a "POP-UP plumbing company" over a reputable plumbing contractor is a bad business decision no matter how you position it.

Find a plumbing contractor that is licensed, bonded and insured and can provide a team and resources to complete the job efficiently.

Here's a good rule of thumb:
Fast jobs are not cheap | Fast cheap jobs are not good | Cheap good jobs are not fast
Which one do you want.

Common questions about your Santa Monica Plumbing

Air Conditioning

What does a BTU really mean?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
A ton of cooling is now defined as delivering 12,000 BTU/hour of cooling. BTU is short for British Thermal Unit (and is a unit that the British do not use) The BTU is a unit of heating - or in this case, cooling - energy. It’s more important, however, to keep in perspective that a window air conditioner is usually less than one ton. A small home central air conditioner would be about two tons and a large one about five tons.

Water Heaters

How can I keep my what heater running longer?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
One way is to turn the power off on the unit. Connect a hose to water heater. Drain the water out. Open and close the inlet valve a few time to let that stuff settled inside come out.


What can I do to reduce loss with a toilet?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
From too much water flow at flush to handle keeps coming loose or doesn't stop trying to fill the tank to floor leaks under the toilet, unless you have some experience, it is best to have an experienced reputable plumber fix your toilet. This alone will save you money beyond the actual repair itself.


My dishwasher doesn't drain.

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Some water should be left behind after each wash. This is a normal thing. But, if you have an unreasonable amount of water left in the unit after a wash, check the drain / over flow outlet that is usually next to your kitchen faucet. It might be clogged.


I cannot get hot water to come out of the faucet

The Bob & Marc Answer:
Whether it's a sink or shower faucet, it's probably something that is happening inside the faucet that is worn. Most newer faucets can be repaired by replacing the cartridge inside. Even though you can go Online and try to order the correct parts, it's confusing to most do it yourselfers. Have your plumber fix it for you as this is typically a very inexpensive service call.

Clean Outs

Q. Where are my clean-outs located?

The Bob & Marc Answer:
They can be located inside the house but are more often on the exterior of the house. You will need to carefully look at all sides to the house to find the sewer clean out because there could be more than one and they can be obscured by landscaping.
