- 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 and are 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 water pressure during your showers, 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.

If it’s time for a replacement, we’d be glad to recommend energy-efficient models.

- 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!
