I had a pipe burst in my home so I called a plumbing company

Reading time:

It was in the middle of the night, all of a sudden I awoke to the sound of what I thought to be rushing water. But strangely enough the sound came from beyond the wall. I had never heard of anything like this before and it was all completely new to me. I knew one thing for sure though, and that was that this was definitely a bad sign, and it was a sign that I should call a plumber to help me with my problems. I called the first company I found online that was open 24 hours. It turned out that it was They had some good reviews online and that was enough for me, I needed a plumber and I needed one fast.

I called them at 3am In the morning and they picked up promptly, I explained my situation to their plumbing company and they told me that I probably had a burst pipe and that they would send a plumber immediately. The plumber arrived quickly, within about 20 minutes, even though they promised within an hour. The guy was really nice even though I called at 3am in the morning, says that he sees it all the time. So they called more of their crew there and they worked throughout the night to repair the damage that was done.

Overall my experience with the Diamond Rancho Bernardo Plumber was rather pleasant. They did exactly what I hired them for and they did it with a smile. They were very friendly and easy to get along with. They also cleaned up afterthemselves and made sure not the leave a mess. Most contractors for plumbing that I’ve worked with in the past have often left large and unkempt messes for me the clean up, so this was definitely a relief. If I lived in Encinitas I would still hire an encinitas plumber from their company. hands down best plumbing company I have ever worked with
