Brandon Fowler is great and very knowledgeable. I worked with many different contractors before but he gave me a sense of a family member. He was willing to give out tips without charging you extra, unlike some plumbers out there, only aim at customers' pockets. I'd recommend Brandon to friends and family.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jordan with Goettl Plumbing today. I have met more than a handful of plumbers over the last week. He is THE 1ST to fully listen to the situation and take the time to fully mail out my wacky plumbing situation and then take the time to make sure I understood it fully. I am delighted to sit and write this review for a true knowledgeable professional. He put in so much time to make sure he really got it and addressed all my issues. He’s still doing his thing to he talk the specs for the bid but I am confident that I will actually get the bids I asked for, for the job I asked for, when he said he would provide them. That has not happened with the other five plumbers this week. Jordan knows what he’s doing and he wants to help his customers. Much appreciated!
Brandon was yet another shining example of the exemplary service provided by Goettl. They obviously only hire the best! The upfront costs are significant, but the subsequent warranty coverage makes it worth it.

James and Joe have been amazing to work with. They went above and beyond to determine the cause of my plumbing issue and provided several options to tackle the challenge that didn’t break the bank. I’m looking forward having them back to complete the job and ensure the longevity of my home investment.

I had a great experience starting with Javier responding to our call AC went out on portion of home. He was very pleasant, knowledgeable and got the technical team together and they started asap. The following day we had Chris, Juan, Eric and Jarrel respond to our home in teams to put in the new AC and heat pump. These were the best contractors, professionals I ever had work on my property. They stayed till 9:30pm to make sure everything was done correctly and helped download app to run AC. I really appreciate this company and team and definitely will use them in the future years. Thank you!

Sergio Juvi and team did an excellent job responding to our plumbing concerns and tackling a big project. They arrived right on time, and were able to address the entire project in under 2 days. They were very respectful of our yard and landscaping, and left the yard looking just as it was prior to the project. Highly recommend.

Super impressed with Goettl. Ran into a nasty drain issue a few months ago, but due to rain and other ongoing construction could not address. Jordan sorted out issue temporarily, but flagged that cast iron drain lines were in bad shape.Last Friday, lines plugged and I could not clear, even trying with my snake. Called, Grant came out, and was able to clear a bit, but showed lines had effectively collapsed.Enter Sergio and crew. They arrived bright and early Saturday, cleared enough that we could use bathrooms for weekend. Full multi day job to renovate lines, finding buried clean outs, replacing those that were defective, clearing all blockages, installing liners, and installing spin coat where liners could not go. Communication was excellent, work was clean, workspace was well secured and left tidy each evening.I am super impressed with Sergio and his team! Amazed at how much they did in a few days.And overall, everyone I worked with was professional, competent, thoughtful in how they approached the problems, and worked super hard in this heat wave. Really impressed, 100% recommend.

James did a fantastic job. He found the problem and went the extra mile. He was not only professional but very knowledgeable in all aspects. I would recommend he and the company Goettl. I have had them in the past and will continue using them in the future and will recommend them to my friends and family. They are a 5 Star Company and James is a 5 Star employee. Thanks so much for all you have done for me in the past, present and will do in the future.

Marcus came out to service our AC unit. He was super informative and helpful. He was very diligent about putting shoe covers on before entering our house and removing them when he needed to step outside to get something from his van. I really appreciate that as we are a no shoes in the house home.

Our main sewer line was completely clogged due to root invasion. Sergio and Oscar were great. They performed the service (hydrojetting and pipe lining) quickly and efficiently. They are also super nice guys. They kept us informed every step of the way. I will definitely use Goettl again in the future.

I couldn’t be more pleased with Goettl Air Conditioning and Plumbing! First, they allotted me a very inexpensive evaluation fee. Second, the young man who provided the evaluation was remarkably professional, knowledgeable, capable and considerate. His name is Marcus, and he’s a star! I then got to speak to his superior David and we discussed financing to replace my Air Conditioning unit’s capacitor and fan motor! He spoke to me about some amazing deals Goettl is offering at this time, June 2023. I look forward to speaking to him further in a few days. You’ve got to go Goettl! Super grateful for a stellar experience and service.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Jordan was the absolute best!! He explained everything in away that I could understand and gave me several options to choose from that suited my needs. There was never any pressure or feeling that he was trying to upsell me. I would highly recommend working with Jordan!!

Brandon Fowler came by to help with a clogged toilet drain and was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very professional, knowledgeable, kind, and an all around great dude. He was able to diagnose the issue and make honest suggestions in what needed to be done to fix it. I definitely plan to use Goettl again if needed, and will specifically request Brandon. Thank you Brandon and Goettl Plumbing!

In addition to the new water heater installation, I also had a whole house re-pipe. The gentlemen who came to do the job were all very professional, courteous and kind. They were responsive and did an excellent job. I feel very lucky to have found Goettl!I must say the best part of all to me was working with Mike Ward. I can’t sing his praises enough for his professionalism and management!Sadly, it is very rare these days to encounter someone like Mike who cares so much that the job gets done right, so I feel like I hit the jackpot with him in charge. I’m sure you’ve heard this about him from many clients before me, but it certainly bears repeating.I was in panic mode in the beginning of all the chaos and Mike took great care to oversee that the job was performed even better than expected. To have excellent management is everything to a company! I know because I managed managers for 30 years and good ones are hard to find. He’s definitely value-added to your company so hang on to him!I will definitely be contacting Goettl for all my plumbing and AC needs in future. Thanks for the opportunity to leave a review.

highly recommend this plumbing company. Their service was fast, friendly, and efficient. The employees were kind, respectful, and well-prepared. The technicians, Anthony and Nate, provided excellent service and were able to come and complete the work within 24 hours of my inquiry. I had a leak and needed a new water heater, and I am very pleased with their service.

James was the plumbing professional, who arrived at my house- he was the ultimate professional, and also very knowledgeable. He was Very respectful of my home with booties and hand, and cleaned up after he was finished with his work. Hi have another furnace maintenance service done a couple of weeks ago with this company and the professional they sent out for that job was also excellent! Very knowledgeable, didn’t create additional work that didn’t need to be done… And also very professional. So far this company is five stars! What a refreshing experience! Many thanks for hiring, only the best professionals that are knowledgeable, respectful and polite.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just a great experience all around. Simple scheduling, fast response and fair price. The technician couldn’t have been nicer. He explained everything really well, did a great job fixing the problem and left everything super clean. He even offered to blow the leaves off my patio! Highly recommended - I will definitely use them again.

My shower drain was clogged, I called the company to see if they could fix it. The lady I talked to Kim, was very professional. She took the time to explain to me how the repair would go. The response time for the repair team was impressive. I have had to wait hours before and this company amazed with with their professionalism and how timely they responded to my concern. Even the pricing was very fair. I feel a lot of times being a woman, repair companies try to take advantage of the things I don’t know about plumbing but this company did not do that and we’re very professional and helpful. I would highly recommend anyone using this company, I definitely will again! Thank you for the help.

I am so glad I chose Pacific Drain & Plumbing to complete my drain pipe lining and repairs.The drain pipes in my old apartment building kept backing up. Pacific Drain & Plumbing were the first company to find the real issue. PD&P used their cameras to pinpoint the failure and show me exactly what was going on, my cast iron pipes where cracked and rusting away.I got quotes from 3 different companies. Pacific Drain & Plumbing's quote was not the cheapest, but I felt their plan was the best and their personnel the most knowledgeable.I was right picking this company. The repairs under one apartment went well. They replaced the totally rusted out pipes and lined the others pipes all the way to the city sewer.Many months later, the drains under the other side of the building failed and water was everywhere. PD&P again did a great job with the repair.Both repairs where major undertakings. Their teams worked very well together and where considerate of our property and tenants. I would recommend this company and will use them again for any drain or plumbing needs.

The sewer pipe from our home to the city sewer line was originally installed in the 40s. It’s made out of tar paper called Orangeburg (cast iron was being diverted to the war effort). It’s served us much longer than expected. But root intrusions and general degradation caused a portion of it to collapse. The folks at Pacific Drain came out and quickly repaired the collapsed section. But they took it an extra step. They repaired our ancient sewer pipe by installing a sturdy epoxy liner inside of it, in under one day. This avoided the disruption of digging up the old pipe and replacing it. Now the pipe is good for another 25 years. Amazing! Their staff did an excellent job, were a pleasure to work with, and the price was very reasonable. I highly recommend Pacific Drain for sewer pipe repair.

Our Story

It all started with a flashlight.

I was a ten-year-old boy holding a flashlight for my Dad while he worked on an air conditioner for a customer. His name was Duncan Goodrich. He didn’t talk much. But there’s a certain kind of magic that happens when a son holds a flashlight for his father. I held it steady and quiet and Dad talked to me while he worked.
