In 2014 I was in charge of our park maintenance out in Bulverde. Due to the unusually cold weather, we had several occasions when we had pipes freeze and break. A-Tex was a Godsend! They came out right away, assessed the situation, and gave us a very fair quote for the repairs. In addition they …

We hired A&A after getting a free quote for installing new water softner. Their workers were on time and provided great info and advice. We interviewed another company but A&A impressed us. NOTE: We also had 4 OTHER water service providers spiels - one even show up as soon as we pulled into the driveway an hour after we closed!! So we heard about 6 pitches total. A&A prices were comparable - we paid around $2.5K, which includes maintenance plan. Something that not all other pitches even mentioned. The same A&A guys (David & Abe) who provided the inital quote also worked on our softner and definitely put in the hours to get the job done correct and on time. They also informed us about the service plan that goes one step more with just installing a water softner - I'm glad we went their plan. None of the other pitches clarified as clearly the level of work or services need to maintain our system. In the long run, we have peace of mind and guanrantees with our installation & maintenance of our system. About 2 weeks ago I noticed a billing fluke and called the office. They fixed the issue quickly and efficiently. As a new resident to Texas, I'm very impressed with the quality of workmanship and professionalism of A&A plumbing and have already and will continue to recommend their services.
Call A-TEX first!!! This is a REAL review by a REAL CUSTOMER. A-TEX came out and fixed a leak in our front yard that was supposedly repaired by another plumber a few months ago. The first plumber gave us a 1 yr warranty for the work but when we called to tell him about the leak all we got were excuses and lies and eventually he wouldn't even take our calls. I called A-TEX and David and Anthony arrived to our home in no time. My husband had already dug the hole so the guys easily assessed the problem and showed us what was wrong and explained everything along the way even showing us what poor work the first plumber did. They quoted us an excellent price and even gave us a discount because my husband had already dug the hole. These guys are professional, courteous and give great customer service. You can tell they care about their customers and their reputation. They checked and rechecked everything before they left and even gave us a suggestion regarding packing the hole with sand which we wouldn't have known to do. I would highly recommend that you call them first and don't waste your time or your money for that matter on anyone else. I would definitely recommend them to others and will call them again in a heartbeat if I have other plumbing needs. Thanks A-TEX from a grateful and appreciative customer.
I called four different plumbing companies trying to get a quote for the replacement of the Temperature/Pressure valve of a 40 Gallon gas water heater. Quotes went from $190 to $400 for a very simple repair. I finally resolved to call Lujan Plumbing, I got an estimate for $112 with a $10 discount that brought it to $102. I have scheduled for the next day at 10AM. The next day, Mr. Frank Lujan showed up on time and he have taken a look at Temperature/Pressure valve which surprisingly appeared o be working, but after further inspection he advised me that I should replace it, because when activated, it would leave a small stream of water would be leaking. I agreed with his decision, and he completed the work in less than 20 minutes. The old Temperature/Pressure valve was extremely corroded, and it would not have caused a lot of problems if I decided to keep it. Frank made sure that there is no leak, and cleaned the work area before leaving. I am extremely pleased with Mr. Frank's honesty, work ethics and professionalism, and I would like to recommend him for anyone looking for a professional plumbing service at a reasonable price.
I like working with Michael and Yolanda Ortega. Michael's a diligent plumber, comes promptly to do good work and gets the job done quickly and honestly and cordially. I've had him out several times to do different plumbing jobs--expansion tank for my water heater (recommended by a Home Inspector), cleaning out a slow tub drain, installing my new sink plumbing in the kitchen after a granite countertop upgrade we did with Costco contractors. When we had the new sink plumbing done, we first called Aramendia Plumbers because we had seen their advertising on TV. They came and estimated the job at $500 less a 10% senior citizen discount = $450. I hit the ceiling said "No way!" and almost threw them out for such banditry. I then worked with MagicService to find Ortega Plumbing. He promptly came out and did the same job for $164.00! Can you believe that difference in price?? Some of the companies out there will steal you blind if you let them. It's really nice to find a great personable and competent plumber like Michael. He's my plumber from now on!
I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a complete Trane heating and cooling system from your company. I wanted to take a moment of your valuable time to let you know how pleased I am with this system. It has made a tremendous difference in the cooling of my home. Moreover, it has lowered my electric bill by more than $40.00 in just one month. However, more important than the obvious monetary savings is the excellent customer service I received from your company. I was treated with respect right from the start. Your employees were truly interested in finding the correct system to fit my specific needs, and not just how much they could sell me. In this day and age finding a company that puts the customer in front of the dollar sign is becoming the exception rather than the rule. I applaud you for being that exception.
Daryl & Clay were at my house within 2 hours. Daryl performed diagnostics on my outside unit & determined it was a bad breaker in my breaker box- not my A/C unit. He explained that an electrician would be needed to fix the problem. He then scheduled an electrician come by the next morning. He reached for his invoice book as I reached for my checkbook. "oh, there's no charge" he said. "This is a FREE service call." Are you kidding me? Come on now. What's the catch? There WAS no catch. After getting my eyes poked out dozens of times by every trade imaginable, "Will"Fix It" goes "old-school" and sends out 2 professionals to help me & my family. Wow. Well done, guys. Thank you Daryl M. so much & good luck Clay.
This is by far the best plumbing company in San Antonio! Excellent service and affordable prices!!! I have tried other plumbing companys and they do not come even close to the Plumber Plumbing Company. Other plumbing companys I've tried wanted to sell me products that I don't even need and most important they wanted to charge me a arm and leg for those items. One company wanted 300 dollars for a garbage disposal. The Plumber plumbing company charged me a very cheap price and best of all a master plumber came to install it. Other plumbing companys have people who don't even have a license working for them! Do you even want to trust those people? I sure don't!!! I will always use this company for my plumbing needs and you should too!
This review is to express my deepest and most sincere appreciation for the integrity and work performed by one of their workers, Eloy. I first met Eloy in August 2010 when he was the technician responding to an emergency call for water bubbling up from the foundation in my garage. He swiftly and accurately diagnosed the location and cause of the water leaks and listened intently as I explained the chronology of events of unresolved plumbing leaks I had been experiencing since March 2010...as well as my struggles with USAA. Eloy spoke directly to the claims adjuster for USAA and made himself 100% available to me by cell phone for any and all questions or concerns that I might have.
When making a high dollar investment I have a tendency to ask countless questions. Your employees were more than patient answering each question completely and professionally. Never once did I feel as if I was imposing, taking up too much of their time or asking too much in the way of an explanation. From the dispatchers in the front office, to the technicians in the field, your entire staff is to be commented for their friendly attitude and commitment to quality customer service. They truly exemplify the meaning of customer service. Fast, friendly, efficient and caring, these are just a few of the words I have recently used to describe your company and employees.
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Goetz Plumbing! The owner, Chris Goetz is a class act! He provided me with excellent customer service, including a follow-up phone call to make sure our problem was resolved! "John" our service tech did a great job! He worked quickly & efficiently! He was friendly & kind! He fixed the problem & our hot water heater is working again! All of this was done in less than 24 hours! And on a holiday week end! You're probably thinking it cost a fortune for this kind of service.....Goetz Plumbing was more than fair! Thank you, Goetz Plumbing! Debra C. San Antonio, Texas
If your toilet is losing water, the problem can usually be quickly identified by taking a look inside the tank.
Under the tank's lid, you'll see a few items:
To understand what could be going awry in your toilet, it's best to first know what happens with each of these items. When you flush the toilet, the handle pulls on a lever attached to the flapper's chain. The flapper then lifts up and lets the fresh water in the tank flow into the bowl.
As the water drains, the float drops to the bottom of the tank, which triggers another lever. This lever turns on the pump, and begins to fill the tank up with fresh water. The pump is turned off when the float reaches the top of the tank again. The water should not go past the top of the overflow tube.
An old or damaged flapper is one of the most likely culprits behind a running toilet. The flapper needs to create a tight seal so water doesn't leak down into the bowl. If water is slowly seeping past the plug, the float will eventually be lowered enough to trigger the pump to turn on.
To replace the flapper:
Flappers are generally pretty universal, so the biggest thing you'll need to take note of is the size. Older toilets generally have a 2-inch outlet valve diameter, while newer ones more likely have a 3-inch outlet valve diameter.
The resting place of your float is key here. If the float naturally rises above the overflow tube, the pump won't turn off until the water reaches that position. Then, water will go down the overflow tube, lowering the water level in the tank, starting the process over again. To solve this, simply readjust the rod so the float's resting place is below the overflow tube.
When the toilet isn't being flushed, the chain leading to the flapper shouldn't be too tight. This could be lifting the flapper enough to let water through. Check the flapper position and the chain and adjust as needed so the flapper shuts tight.
