Murieta Plumbing Service

I ordered a new hot water heater. I ordered the GE Heat pump water heater. Fancy! I needed a plumber to install it. I called around. You would think we live in Siberia! I can't believe how many - "I don't service Rancho Murieta." or "I don't go out that far!" or "That's too far for me to travel with gas so high." Some of these places are located in Fair Oaks, Rancho Cordova and Folsom. If I was in North Natomas (twice the miles) , they would have come over. Sheesh!

So I went local. Martin at Murieta plumbing Service (354-3303) answered his phone and was very knowledgeable, professional & polite. We set up a pre-install appt. Martin came out, gave me an estimate and I promised to call as soon as I knew the delivery time for Saturday. He came out on Saturday and installed the new one. It turned out I  also needed 2 new valves. When I asked "how much" it was because I expected to pay for the additional work. He quoted me back the original estimate. I had to force him to take the additional money. It's only fair to pay for what you get.

I had called around just to get an educated guess as how much I should set aside for the install back in Novemeber. Martin was very reasonable in price. Especially since with the additional work took it just past 4 hours. He even hauled away my old water heater.

I highly recommend Martin for your plumbing needs. He did a great job.

Murieta Plumbing

I agree Elisabeth....we had occasion to need a plumber and I called Martin. He took care of my problem and was reasonable in price. He stays on the job and always follows up to see that all is working fine....I appreciate his customer service.

If you have plumbing needs, Martin is your man.

Very Reasonable

 I too had the need for a plumber this past week-end.  Martin arrived at our agreed upon time, performed the work and the price was very reasonable.

I guess I won't be calling those guys that give you a four hour window and charge you and arm and a leg just to say hello.

Quality work, on time, friendly, and reasonable cost?  I know it's hard to believe, but it's true with Murieta Plumbing.

I almost forgot to mention - this was Sunday afternoon.

Recommend Murieta Plumbing

 We too had a very positive experience with Murieta Plumbing Service.  Rather than make a costly repair to an 8 year old water heater, Martin recommended a new water heater, ordered and delivered it to our home, bought all the necessary parts from Home Depot, installed it and hauled away the old water heater for a very reasonable fee.  We would definitely call him again and recommend him to others in need of service.

Rancho Murieta Plumbing

Martin of Murieta Plumbing has provided us with excellent service on several occasions. One emergency that went late into the night and on smaller jobs. He is knowledgeable, conscientious and is reasonable with his pricing. I have noticed that he is very busy and I think he does his best to prioritize the many "emergency" calls he receives every day. Since he is a "one man show", I try to be reasonable with my requests, realizing that fixing my garbage disposal may have to get done after someone else's busted water pipe. He is local and has always done well by us and our community.

Called Murieta Plumbing 6 times this week without a return call. Heard he may have lost his license. Got a hold of Pragle Plumbing who immediately took my call and handled the plumbing problem professionally and at a good price. I would highly recommed Mark Pragle for your plumbing and heating/air needs. He can be reached at 916-247-7514.
