They're very professional, and theyve done a wonderful job. We are extremely satisfied. If you have any problems, plumbing or contractual problem, call Mason. They'll fix the plumbing and give you a referral if they can't address the contract work.

I asked him about electrical contractors just for a backup in case we have any electrical problems. I hadn't thought about the storm, and he gave me a couple of names and recommended them highly. I like his professionalism. He as a person is very, very congenial and very knowledgeable. He explains everything and does the work himself. He's been here a number of times, and he's been very professional, his staff as well. As far as I'm concerned, they're 100 percent.

Comparative Summary

Maintaining customer satisfaction is a crucial aspect of any business, but it’s even more important for plumbing companies that have earned the prestigious Diamond Certified award. For Mason Plumbing, Inc., keeping customers satisfied comes down to three factors: reliability, accountability and customer service. “We show up when we say we will and do what we say we’re going to do,” affirms CEO Cameron Mason. “By staying committed to serving our community and treating our customers fairly, we’ve been able to set ourselves apart.”

Mason Plumbing has been providing plumbing maintenance and repair services for residential and commercial clients throughout Marin County since 2003. In addition to handling routine work like toilet repairs and faucet replacements, the family-owned and operated company has the in-house capabilities to clean sewers, perform video pipe inspections, install and repair water heaters (including tankless models), and more.

Unlike larger plumbing companies that take an “assembly line” approach to every job in an effort to maximize their workload volume, Mason Plumbing focuses on providing personalized service in order to maintain a high level of quality. “By keeping our company small, we’ve been able to improve the ways we connect with our clients and train our technicians,” says Mr. Mason. “We want to do right by every customer, and the best way to do that is to take a personal, hands-on approach to their job.”

To further differentiate itself from its competition, Mason Plumbing offers a variety of water-saving options to help eco-conscious customers do their part to help the environment. “New products like high-efficiency tankless water heaters and recirculating pumps give homeowners instant access to hot water, which can save hundreds of gallons of water a month,” explains Mr. Mason. “Other options like high-efficiency toilets and appliances add to water savings without sacrificing comfort and convenience.”

Industry Info

If you’re planning to install new plumbing appliances or fixtures, consider products that will maximize your water efficiency without sacrificing comfort.

Despite the public pleas for water efficiency, many Bay Area residents are suffering from conservation fatigue after years of low-water conditions. But according to Cameron Mason, CEO of Mason Plumbing, Inc. in San Anselmo, even those who are tired of carefully monitoring their water usage can find solutions that conserve without cramping comfort. “High-efficiency tankless water heaters and recirculating pumps are good examples of new technology that has changed in recent years,” he explains. “Such systems allow homeowners to have instant access to hot water, which can save thousands of gallons of water per household per year.”

Options like high-efficiency toilets, appliances, and fixtures contribute to water savings without sacrificing comfort and convenience. Consider the following information:

·      WaterSense products (labeled by the EPA) help consumers choose water-conscious fixtures that are efficient and still function well. Items like showerheads, toilets, bathroom and kitchen faucets, and toilets have been tested and certified for exceptional performance.

·      Low-flow toilets are improving. Today’s low-flow toilets save up to 2 gallons per flush compared to toilets installed prior to 1993, and they flush better than early versions of water-saving toilets. Look for dual-flush models that allow you to choose the amount of water per flush for even more water savings.

·      Low-flow faucets that restrict flow from 2.2 gallons per minute to 1.5 gallons per minute don’t noticeably use less water, but they can save upward of 700 gallons per year.

·      Aerating showerheads and faucets mix air and water to offer desired water pressure while still using less water. Some manufacturers even offer rain-style, massaging and center-jet showerheads that feel like high-flow fixtures.

·      Sensors and low-flow irrigation systems allow you to water your lawn and preserve curb appeal with less water usage by only watering when your plants need it. Systems that self-detect leaks and other problems can prevent wasted water by warning homeowners about leaks and irrigation system damage.

Cameron Mason: An Unplanned Profession

By James Florence, Diamond Certified Resource Reporter

SAN ANSELMO — When Cameron Mason started plumbing to pay his way through college, he never thought it would become his primary livelihood. “I worked as a plumber while earning my degree in physical therapy,” he explains. “After graduating, I did an internship with a local physical therapist, but eventually I realized it wasn’t for me. I had fond memories of plumbing, so I decided to return to the trade full-time. After completing my five-year apprenticeship, I started my own business.”

Today, as owner of Mason Plumbing, Inc., Cameron says his favorite part of his job is solving problems. “I enjoy going into a customer’s home, looking at the problem they’re having and coming up with a solution. As a plumber, every day brings a new challenge, as well as a new opportunity to help someone.”

A resident of Marin County (where he lives with his wife, Kamber, and their two children), Cameron expresses his appreciation for his longtime locale. “I was born and raised in Marin, so I feel very connected to my community. I really like the culture—it’s kind of a unique little bubble within the Greater Bay Area.”

Outside of work, Cameron spends the bulk of his time with his family. “During the last five years, my biggest hobby has been driving the kids to and from activities,” he laughs. “My son is a competitive swimmer and my daughter dances ballet, so I do a lot of chauffeuring.” When he’s not on call for child transportation, Cameron enjoys activities like mountain biking, working on his house and traveling. “We try to take a trip with the kids at least once every six months. We’ve been to Rome, Paris and Mexico, and we’re going to England later this summer.”

In his life and career, Cameron espouses the importance of integrity. “I believe in being a man of my word,” he affirms. “If I say I’m going to be somewhere at a certain time, I have to follow through with that. Basically, actions speak louder than words, and that’s what success in both life and business is all about.”

When asked about his future plans for retirement, Cameron says he doesn’t believe in bucket lists. “I’m already living the life I want to live. I work hard, but I get to have breakfast and dinner with my family every day, and I’m off nights and weekends. It’s a good balance, and you can’t ask for much more than that.”

Ask Me Anything!

Q: What’s your favorite sports team?
A: The San Francisco 49ers.

Q: What’s your favorite TV show?
A: “Fixer Upper.”

Q: Music or talk radio?
A: Music.

Q: What kinds of music do you enjoy?
A: I’m all over the place—I’ll listen to anything from Edith Piaf to Rancid.

Q: If you could time travel, would you go to the past or the future?
A: I’d probably go to the future and try to figure out what we could do right now to make it better.

  • Benefits of Hot Water Recirculation

    SAN ANSELMO — Growing up, I remember going to take my morning shower, turning on the water and then picking out my clothes while I waited two to three minutes for it to heat up. While this is still the case in many homes, it no longer has to be—with the advent of hot water recirculation, you can get instant hot water from even the fixtures furthest from your water heater.

    Hot water recirculation pumps have been around for a while, but the technology has advanced significantly over the last few years. One of today’s top products is Grundfos’ Comfort System. It starts with a 12-horsepower, 115-volt pump that’s installed on the top of your water heater. Next, manifolds are installed at the desired plumbing fixtures, from your shower to your kitchen sink. Once everything is hooked up, you simply program the system’s timer and you’ll have instant hot water to the connected fixtures.

    Besides the convenience of instant hot water, a hot water recirculation pump can save an estimated 16,000 gallons per year in a four-person household—almost three-quarters of a swimming pool! In an era when water is more precious than ever, hot water recirculation pumps should be in every Bay Area home.

Expert video tip
  • Video: Hot Water Recirculation Pumps

    Complete Video Transcription:

    SAN ANSELMO — Host, Sarah Rutan: If you’re looking for ways to conserve water in your home, your first step should be installing a hot water recirculation pump. Today we’re in San Anselmo with Diamond Certified Expert Contributor Cameron Mason of Mason Plumbing to learn why.

    Diamond Certified Expert Contributor, Cameron Mason: I remember as a kid going to take a morning shower, you would turn on the hot water and then you’d go take three minutes to go pick out your clothes, because the hot water wasn’t going to be there for a long time. That is not the case anymore. The engineers at Grundfos have come up with a pump that will get hot water to your furthest fixture, your kitchen, your shower, your sink, instantaneously.

    So, all we need to do is take a pump like this, a little 12-horsepower, 115-volt recirc pump, pop this right on top of the hot water heater, put some manifolds at your furthest fixture in your kitchens or your bathrooms, set the timer or the aquastat, plug it in and you are good to go. And we’ll have instantaneous hot water to wherever you want, immediately. Saves 16,000 gallons a year for an estimated family of four. That is huge. That’s almost three-quarters of a swimming pool. So, in this time when water is so precious, a comfort pump system should be in every house.
