Paul Gerrard, our founder and CEO, began studying plumbing in England in 1985. He completed a London Institute City and Guilds apprenticeship in plumbing and hydronic heating before moving to the United States in 1996. He has owned his own plumbing company since 2000 and is committed to continually delivering outstanding customer service to each and every home and business his company comes in contact with.

About Our Technicians

At Big Blue Plumbing, we believe that how you do one thing is how you do all things, and to that end, integrity permeates all we do. All of our technicians carry the Tech Seal Of Safety, which means they are background checked and drug tested and that they have been through our customer service training program before they are allowed into your home. It is not by accident that one of the most common compliments we receive about our team members is how nice they are.

Each of our technicians has a thorough understanding of everything plumbing related, including:


About Our Process & Pricing

Our technicians are trained to thoroughly diagnose plumbing issues to determine not just what is happening, but why it is happening so that we can provide permanent solutions. There are normally multiple ways to provide that solution, so we always present all the options to you with up-front, straight-forward pricing so you will know, to the penny, what your investment will be. We understand that you do not like surprises. All of our work comes with a 100% satisfaction guarantee, so if you are not satisfied, you do not pay for the service.

We Go Above & Beyond

Our professionalism shines through in all we do. It starts with our daily training, where we share knowledge of plumbing with each other and from industry professionals. Our customer care team exhibits professionalism with our cheery greeting, “How can we make you smile?”, and the text notification our clients receive with a picture of their technician and updates on his arrival time. Professionalism continues when the technician arrives at the home, puts the Big Blue floor protectors on their feet, and performs a thorough evaluation to ensure they are fully diagnosing the issue and presenting solutions.

The Big Blue Family has fun at work. We enjoy each others' company and we enjoy the clients that we work for. Our commitment to the community around us includes our Beach Clean Up days, raising money for local charities, such as the Berkeley High School Best Buddies organization and the Surfrider Foundation.
