Residential & Commercial Plumbing Solutions Made Easy

Big Blue Plumbing specializes in residential and commercial plumbing solutions in Alameda County, including all of the following for your peace of mind:

Water Leaks

Not only are they wasteful and inconvenient, but water leaks can also cause significant damage to your property. Whether the leaky pipes are in your kitchen, bathroom, or basement, our local plumbers at Big Blue Plumbing have your back. Call us to inspect and repair or replace your pipes before the damage is done and you’re out thousands of dollars because of water damage to your floors, ceilings, and personal items.

Clogged Drains

Clogged drains represent more than a disruption to your daily routine. If you’re not careful, a clogged drain can lead to a pool of unsanitary water inside your sink or on your floors. Our plumbing contractors are equipped with state-of-the-art plumbing tools to snake even the most stubborn drains, so that you can get back to that much-needed shave or hot bath. We frequently offer specials on video drain line inspections to help us get to the root of your problem to avoid future clogs!

Toilet/Tub Repairs

Our local plumbers in Alameda, CA can unclog or repair your toilet or bathtub backed by some of the industry’s best warranties. When dealing with an overflowing toilet, always remember to shut off your water valve, if possible, before giving us a call. We’re experienced with older models of toilets, as well as newer, energy-efficient ones and commercial alternatives, including urinals and bidets. If you need us to take a look at your shower or tub, we’re adept at dealing with damaged pipes, broken gauges, clogged drains, and anything else that may be preventing you from relaxing in the tub.

Low/High Water Pressure

If you’re experiencing low shower water pressure, don’t be caught standing there in the suds. Call our local plumbers to test your water pressure and get it back to normal as soon as possible. Many low water pressure problems are caused by water leaks. The type of plumbing solution we offer will vary depending on if the water pressure issue affects only one fixture or your entire plumbing system.

Sewer/Water Line Replacements

When it comes to sewer/water line replacements, you can’t afford to mess around with an amateur. Call our experienced plumbing contractors to repair or clean your sewer lines or to pump your septic tank. Your sewer lines should remain clear for at least a year after their replacement but be sure to view our sewer line guarantees for more information regarding our clearing services on lines we’ve installed!

Gas Line Repairs

A faulty or leaking gas line is a serious safety hazard. Big Blue Plumbing will ensure your gas lines are installed correctly and are up-to-code in time for your next family barbecue in the backyard. We also specialize in making gas lines earthquake-safe with specialized shut-off valves for Californians.

Water Heater Installations & Repairs

Are you without hot water in your shower or sink? Big Blue Plumbing repairs and installs water heaters, including solar and tankless water heaters if you’re interested. If it’s time for a replacement, we’d be glad to recommend energy-efficient models. We also stand behind new water heater installations with a guarantee that we’ll fix them for free if they fail within the first year. We’ll even give you $100 in repair vouchers for the inconvenience. Please check out our 11 Service Guarantees for more details!

Garbage Disposal Repairs

Has your garbage disposal stopped working, or have you begun to notice a humming or grinding noise?

If your home could use a makeover, you’d be surprised at what updated plumbing fixtures can do to make you feel more comfortable. We back our fixture installations with a guarantee that if they fail during normal usage within the first year, we’ll come back and repair or replace them for free.

Hydronic Radiant Heating Installations

Many California homeowners are interested in installing hydronic radiant heating because it helps keep indoor spaces comfortable year-round. Hydronic radiant heating is considered more energy-efficient because it warms tile or wood floors from beneath without wasting energy from blowers or fans. If you’re interested in exploring the benefits of hydronic radiant heating, we warmly welcome you to call us!

What other say about us

Zachary T

When I called in for service for a clogged drain I spoke to Ebony, who right off the bat was helpful and informative on what I could expect from them during their visit.

We were serviced by RJ Mattson. Who was prompt and understanding of our loud and obnoxious pit bull which is a plus because some people are afraid of loud barks…

He quickly realized our problem was not just a clogged drain but that we potentially had a much bigger problem and proceeded to explain in detail what issue we were dealing with. He even offered to explain the issue with our landlord which was very helpful. After all he is the expert, he could explain it much better than me.

The visit was relatively short being we weren’t prepared to handle the repair cost immediately.
But with the visit being short RJ was kind enough to offer to take the $67 dollars they charge for a diagnostic and put it towards the estimate total. We will be using BBP without hesitation!

We are in the process of selling our home and the city of Oakland requires a lateral sewer inspection. Long story short….we needed to replace the hook-up from the house, install required regulatory items, and replace the sewer pipe to the street.
Nick, RJ, and Cesar “teaspoon” Rivera were all very helpful in explaining the process and requirements.

All of this work included extensive digging in the front yard and street. Cesar was really helpful during the pipe replacement. He checked on the contractors to ensure the work was being done correctly and he even replanted a plant that had to be dug up. He listened to me and and showed empathy when I discovered my prize hydrangea would not be able to replanted due to the meters they had to install. He made sure everything was back in order.

There was quite a lot of dirt and debris left from the project. Crispin Orozco made sure it was cleaned up and back in the condition it was before all the work started. Crispin even replaced some of the garden mulch that had been lost in the digging process and evened out the wood chips around the plants.

Big Blue is our go-to Plumbing company. They do great work and all of the people I have met have been very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable.

Elisabeth B.

I can’t say enough good things about this company. They are professional, friendly, efficient, and hard working. We have a pretty serious plumbing situation that will require more work, but on day one the team came out and worked their you-know-whats off for about 8 hours. They explained everything to us clearly and gave us multiple options on how to proceed before starting anything. I have never had such a positive experience with any plumbing company before, and I would definitely recommend Big Blue to anyone who needs a plumber. Totally top notch.

William Y.

the best plumbing and heating company bar none. for nearly a month, we experienced intermittent hot water outages. we called two other plumbing companies who did nothing but waste our money. one of them, Leapfrog, after gladly charging us a handsome sum simply told us that they didn’t know what was wrong and told us to call the boiler company directly. ridiculous. Paul and Zach, unlike other companies, were professional and knowledgeable from the start. they took the time and effort to understand our house’s heating and water systems. after patiently troubleshooting everything, they found the root cause. we now have hot water and consistent heating throughout our house thanks to their work. these guys are busy and in high demand for a reason – they’re simply the best and worth every single penny. don’t waste your time with others who claim to be experts at what they do. Big Blue Plumbing are true masters of their craft. we’ll be lifetime customers and proud advocates for this great business.

Сhristian B.

Big Blue really helped us out. I reached out with a very unconventional request and they were able to fulfill it in a prompt and kindly fashion. Very compassionate despite the circumstances. I had called every plumber in town and Zack’s response really saved the day. I can’t recommend enough. Thanks so much Big Blue!

Todd J.

I am an architect in Berkeley and know value in the trades when I see it and experience it. Big Blue replaced our broken sewer lateral and never complained when the job was harder (pipes deeper) than they anticipated. Great at details and communication. 5 star plus

Joel S. W.

The people they send are always top notch. Nick is who you want to request if you can get him. I am a member of the Big Blue program which gives you priority service and cost discounts. You pay a few bucks a month to be in the program. With an older house like ours it is worth it. You need those discounts too because these guys tend to be a bit more pricey than other plumbers I have priced out. But as the saying goes, “cheap plumbing can get expensive”.

I found Big Blue Plumbing on a Yahoo search. From the start they were great. The office receptionist Briana was very courteous. She was knowledgeable of the different heating systems and set up an appointment for me right away.

Today Zack from Big Blue Plumbing came in to check on our unit. His arrival time was set up for between the hours of 8 – 10am. He called me prior to arriving, he got here at 8:45am., unfortunately our heat/air system is not one they service. However, Zack stayed and checked our unit, troubleshooting the problems we were having. He was able to let us know what he found he took several pictures for us (to further help us as we find someone who works with Hydronic heating systems.

Zack was very professional, explained everything clearly and left us with some help to make our search a lot easier.

Thanks Zack, you were excellent and we really appreciate your help and dedication to your work.
