I needed a toilet tank repair in January. Called Olivero Plumbing, based on earlier recommendation on Share the Wealth, and I was so happy with their professional manner. The office person made the appointment, the young men showed up on time with masks and with a truly kind and cheerful. They completed the repair by taking the entire tank out to their truck and replacing all the parts. This was done in less than 1/2 hour and I was prepared to pay them but they said the office would send a bill . . . which happened and it was very reasonable and done, as I'll repeat, very professionally.
I will always use them in the future. Oh, they did not charge me a travel fee, which I've seen in earlier posts about this company, so I would ask before assuming the next time.

Used Val Betti a few years ago, on BYL manager's referral; they were very expensive, their guy had attitude I didn't care for, and he didn't fix the problem but of course charged me for coming out.
Recently used Olivero Plumbing in El Cerrito; great service from start to finish, their plumber Bill was great, and price not bad (although they charge for travel). Familiar with BYL and how to work with BYL water shutoff requirements, if necessary. 510-233-3511 (February, 2021)
Val Betti plumbers are affordable and do really excellent work.
I recently got three quotes to have some plumbing work done at Brickyard. I ended up hiring:
They were efficient, timely, and neat. And they were the least expensive. FYI, Val Betti's bid was substantially higher than the other two. (January, 2020)

Pat has done kitchen, laundry and bathroom jobs for me. She is familiar with Brickyard infrastructure and water shutoff protocol. Fair price and she is excellent. (December, 2017)
We've had best results with Tony Faluzi's plumbing repairs and advice, (510) 534-5480. We cant recommend ValBetti as they misdiagnosed a serious plumbing problem as originating in our first floor condo and billed excessively. Fortunately consults with three other plumbers caught and corrected their error. (April, 2016)
