Reviews & Testimonials from San Gabriel Homeowners

Called in for a clogged kitchen sink. Receptionist was excellent. They got to my place in under pizza delivery time. Chris H. was professional the whole time even though I wasn’t sure of things. Price was fair. Excellent all around. Would call them again next time.

Mike to the recuse!!! The pipe for our sprinklers broke and we had a flooded backyard. I called Western Rooter after finding them on yelp, and they were quick to get someone out here and the problem was fixed in 10 minutes. So glad to have found a new plumber, since our last one went out of business. We’ll be using their service again, just hopefully not too soon.

What can I say the BEST plumbers in the SG valley. From the lady who answered the phone to the gentleman who came to my house was outstanding. They don’t rush the job they get it done right the first time.
— Denise P.
We remodeled our kitchen and laundry room. Western Rooter helped us to reroute the gas line and laundry hookup. They were easy to work with, fast and affordable.

Oscar came today to help us fix our toilet and sink issues. The lady gave us a window between 2-4pm and he arrived right at 2:15pm, which we were very pleasantly surprised by. He was professional, courteous, and put on booties as soon as he entered our home, without us even requesting it! He gave us a quote on our issue and didn’t pressure us into having him fix it. For me I hate when people try to oversell you on stuff and pressure you into using their services. Oscar was honest and pleasant, I will definitely request to use him again next time. My gf also was very happy about him putting on the booties which I’m sure a lot of other women out there will appreciate too.

Western Rooter serviceman Adam Amador was amazing. He was professional and knowledgeable and very polite. Felt really confident when the job was done.
— Melody N.
These guys were on time and in and out in less than an hour. Very professional and knowledgeable. Used them after our drains backed up and toilets wouldn’t flush. They can and used the hydrojet to clear our main line. Slightly more expensive than the other plumber I used but were able to fix the problem the other guy made by breaking his cable in our line. I would use them again.

Yesterday I had a slow-flushing toilet and called Western Rooter & Plumbing. They were able to accommodate me the next day. Manny arrived before the timeframe given. He was kind and got to work right away. He unclogged the main sewer line and showed me a video as he dropped a camera down the line. He gave me options for future maintenance, without making me feel pressured.
I’m definitely calling them again!
— Paul R.
We needed a second job done and right away called Western Rooter. Cesar Hernandez serviced our repair and he was great. Explained everything to us, professional, and was prompt to fix us out of a bind. We will be sure to contact WR again.

We recently bought a new property and immediately had repeated issues with the bathrooms backing up in the last couple months. We decided to call Western Rooter and they sent out Justin and Vinny. It turns out we had 2 sections of pipe that collapsed and also tree roots clogging up one of the sections. The plumbing was also installed backwards (previous owner hired a bad plumber) Justin and Vinny were incredibly polite, took the time to explain everything, and were super professional. They were honest and didn’t try to sell unnecessary services. They worked super hard to get everything fixed as soon as possible and ended up trenching up and replacing over 20 ft of old pipes that were crumbling (the house is over 100 years old). They also re-did the plumbing and made sure everything was done right and up to code. They kept me informed throughout the whole process and texted me pictures of the progress while I was at work. I felt very reassured being updated at every stage of the work. This was a big job and because of their professionalism, experience, and honesty, we felt very happy and satisfied. We previously had an independent plumber who used tools from Home Depot, and it obviously didn’t get the job done. We are so happy that we decided to go with a company that uses professional tools and employs individuals that have so much experience. It really makes such a difference knowing you have the job done right and I think any home owner can attest to sleeping better at night knowing your home has been fixed and done right. On top of everything, they worked with us to make sure that this huge job didn’t break the bank and we ended up paying way less than we could have possibly expected for the scope of work. I will always have Justin and Vinny come out to help with any plumbing issues I ever have in the future and will recommend Western Rooter to family and friends.

We have had a recurring plumbing problem. Water was mysteriously appearing in several drains. On many occasions all would be fine with no water. I thought such an intermittent problem would be difficult, if not impossible to troubleshoot. We called Western Rooter. Jesse and his colleague arrived on time and went right to work. They diagnosed and fixed the problem almost immediately, and everything is fine now. I have used Western Rooter before and thought was time to write a review based on past successes. Thanks again, Jesse. Your professionalism and courtesy in fixing our problem was outstanding!
— David R.
We have been using them for several years. We have big camphor trees on the parkway and have recommended to our neighbors. They can be trusted not to try to sell you extra work. Said came the other day did a very professional job and when my neighbor came by to tell him that they were also having a problem, he took care of their problem on the spot.! EXCELLENT!!!!!!!
— Pamela B.
These guys are great, professional phone staff, fast trustworthy technicians.

We live in an older home plagued by intermittent main line back up. It’s cheaper to have it cleaned out every 8 months than it is to replace the pipe (and the large shade trees). Western is out within hours, sometimes one hour, weekends and holidays. Very reasonable.
— Kimberly M.
Wow, first time for everything...never used such a professional plumbing company. Prices seem very fair arrived on time ready to work. Manny and his partner was extremely professional and efficient. They did a great job for me and took a lot of pride in what they did. I would recommend this company. Western definitely gained a new customer today. I will use them again for any plumbing issues that come up. Thanks Western!!!
— Bill Y.
I had a problem with a leak in my bathroom faucet and decided to replace it. My kitchen faucet needed replacing too but with all the pipes and disposal in the way, I couldn’t get under the sink to work efficiently. I called Western Rooter and Manny came out the same day and installed both faucets. I was amazed at what I didn’t know and how I would have been lost, especially trying to replace the bathroom faucet. The plug and plunger needed to be replaced too and I had no idea that the original plug would have to be cut out.

When Manny arrived, he reviewed the request and gave me a fair quote to do both projects plus caulking around the tub. He was extremely professional and careful. He left the job spotless and explained everything he was doing along the way. It’s hard to find excellent service these days but with Western Rooter, that is exactly what you get. We discussed other areas that is going to need attention in the future and I will not hesitate to call Manny and Western Rooter.

I found this company on Yelp, and gave them a call to capture video of my sewer . The lady on the phone was extremely polite and gave me a discount when she heard that I found them on Yelp. Manny was extremely professional from the beginning to the end and I would highly recommend them.
— Jason Y.
I came home after work and my toilet was clogged and backed up. Tried plunging until my wrist started to hurt. I knew something big was blocking the toilet because in the past i was able to fix it with the plunger. Looked around for a plumbing company nearby and came across Western in Arcadia. Called them at 5:15 pm thinking they were closed but glad someone answered the phone. Explained the problem and someone was dispatched to my house within an hour. Glad these guys are around. Will definitely call them again.

Western Rooter repiped our property in April. I’m so glad we went with them because Danny and his team were so helpful and made the entire experience very smooth. They did a fantastic job and I highly recommend them!

The water pipe of my water heater burst late in the night. I called several 24/7 companies but none picked up. Western Rooter was the only one that picked up proving they were actually a 24/7 company. The operator was very helpful, clearly told me costs and said they would send a guy between 9 am to 11 am but would try for sooner. At 7 am I get a call from Isaias Gonzalez saying he is on his way. He was at my place by 7.30 am, was extremely polite, fixed the leak in a giffy and gave me a # of tips including suggesting me to a restoration company. The way Isaias handled the case was awesome. I wish I don’t have a leak again but god forbid I do I know where to go now. Thanks Western Rooter and Isaias for the job very well done and more importantly being the only one who answered the phone late night as compared to other companies who advertised they are 24/7 but no one picked up or even returned the call in the morning.

Homar Montano came to the rescue to clean out my main sewer line. The office staff was very friendly, they gave me a time to expect him and he arrived on time. Homar is very personable and professional he did a quick and efficient job. I would highly recommend him!
— J Q.
Thank God for Western Rooter and Plumbing! My sewer line backed up right before I was hosting a dinner party. These guys came out almost immediately and started working on the problem, which turned out to be pretty major. They eventually installed a clean-out in my front yard which took them two days of hard work under a hot sun. But both guys (Homar and ??) were professional and gracious from start to finish. They explained everything clearly and communicated what it would cost upfront.

My plumbing is back to normal. Yay! But if I have any more problems, I’ll be sure to call these guys. Thanks again!
— Jon V.
They only reason I gave them 5 stars is there wasn’t 6! They were on time(early actually) came in assessed the problem and went right to work. It took a little more work than just running a snake down the line and Carlos was GREAT! He cleaned up after got the problem fixed and the price was fair! A far cry from the pro sent by another Home referral agency.
That company doesn’t even offer this company, what a huge mistake! I found them because my late mom had their number in her book and she didn’t keep # if she didn’t like the work.
I would highly recommend them to anyone that needs a plumber! They did give a few suggestions for down the road but it wasn’t a pressure thing that you need it now, merely a suggestion for down the road. I love an honest service provider and now they are in my permant phone book! This work was done at my moms house in San Gabriel Ca.
— Ron S.
Love their service, came in within 2 hours.
It is after hour at almost midnight, but they made it and they fix it. Price is fair and I like the guy (Pablo) who just did the excellent job. He know what he is doing and fix everything in 30 mins.
What a good company with a good guy they have....
Recommended.
— Ronald L.
I Highly recommend Western Rooter, Homar came over this weekend and helped us with our main line that was backing up, he was able to fix the problem in matter of minutes. I was very satisfied with his service!!!
— Jr P.
As the rating says “as good as it gets”. I had Western Rooter come and clear both my driveway and house drains. I could not be any happier from the first call to the amazing service and the bill payment. First Homer came out to what was going to be a simple drain snaking and worked for many more hours than the cost reflected but there were problems. Manny and Homer returned a few days later and did a fantastic job. More than the job they did, they are really nice people. Christina in the office, Larry the boss, Danny who stopped by, displayed such great professionalism and genuine friendliness that they will always be my call for any plumbing needs. Pricing is as fair as you are going to find and it is only outweighed by the confidence I have in Western Rooter & plumbing. To be true, I waited until the rain came and all is well.....

Homar just left & am completed delighted with the service! Homar was professional, considerate, efficient & resolved my sewer blockage!!!!! I would be happy to recommend Western to anyone in need of plumbing service. Came promptly & took care of my situation. A friend had recommended them to me and I can understand why. Thank you very much!!!!!
— Silvia B.
my shower wasn’t working properly, Carlos came over and tried a number of things to diagnose the problem. unfortunately, he said it was a big issue and would cost about $850. after taking time to further think through his options, he came up with an alternative solution that only cost $350 along with allowing me to return a bunch of parts, saving another $200. i really appreciated the care and thought along with the honesty.
— Ryan S.
We’d already tried to Rooter it last month. It was a disposal and old pipe problem. All service people very gentlemanly and very clean. No BS, just the facts. Given a two- hour window. Totally on time each time. Work done quickly, neatly and clean! I highly recommend! Prices seem very fair!

5pm on Monday and one of my four daughters says that the toilet won’t flush. Then I find that the second toilet wont flush, the sink is backed up too. HELP! I used my Yelp phone app and found Western Rooter with 100+ reviews, most all of them five stars. I called Western and the receptionist was totally understanding of my situation. She said she could have a technician at my house between 7 and 9. I was worried that she meant 7am tomorrow morning, but she meant 7pm tonight. 7pm and Justin called to confirm he was on his way. Justin was courteous and professional. In less than 20 minutes, he had the main line cleared. He asked me to run a lot of water through the pipe to be sure it didn’t backup after he leaves. I ran a backwash of the pool filter, and the water drained just as it should.

As a small business owner, I recognize and appreciate quality service and people who take pride in their work. Justin is the real deal. I’m very happy.

Excellent service! I had a stubborn bathroom sink clog that Liquid Draino couldn’t dissolve. I finally gave up and decided to call western rooter. Danny came promptly and introduced himself with a friendly greeting. He went straight to work on the sink and unclogged it within minutes. After he finished, he made sure the area was clean. Danny was Pleasant to talk to and offered great advice.
