Owner Albert Nahman is celebrating his 36th year in the plumbing business. Mr. Nahman says he has built his company’s reputation by consistently delivering high-quality plumbing products and services to every client. “We believe that a customer well-served is one who’ll stay with us and recommend us to friends and family.”

For an annual membership fee, customers receive a substantial discount on repairs and a yearly check-up of all their plumbing systems. Mr. Nahman says the Peace of Mind Plan has helped many members ward off impending plumbing disasters. “Also, since the fee is applied to the cost of any necessary repairs, the club often ends up paying for itself.”

"It really depends on their needs, but we bought a tankless water heater from them, and they were great. If one could give them an '11' on the scale I would.

They were as professional as can be, and actually went out of their way, or at least to the very edge of their normal service area to do our job."

"I was just really impressed by their professionalism and their thoughtfulness. We have no complaints. They are really good. I don't have that much experience with plumbers in the East Bay, and I had spoken with a couple of more local plumbers, but just didn't get the quality response that I got from Albert Nahman. I was very impressed."
