Chris was amazing. We were so pleased that he had time to come to our house on very short notice where all the other companies... we called could not. We were without a kitchen sink for a whole day but Chris showed up at 4 and worked until 9 pm and got our sink fixed and looking like new. He is very personable , knowledgeable and professional. We are extremely pleased with his work and highly recommend him to anyone needing plumbing services of any sort.An update: Ron came and worked underneath our house in our crawl space and replaced all our drains and sewer pipe. He did such a great job, worked fast and is very professional and personable. Highly recommend Ron and Chris at Yellow Submarine.read more

Ron was able to come earlier than my original appointment which was great. He was extremely professional, walked me through the... entire quote step by step and then got to work right away. He was able to install new hot water tank and bring everything up to code. He left everything clean and tidy and checked all taps throughout the house to make sure we had hot water before he left. Tank installation looks awesome! Very pleased, would absolutely use them again if we have any future plumbing needs.read more

While the service itself was very good and very fast, the price was very high. To be fair, they provided a quote beforehand and... their system kept things very transparent from cost perspective, but in the end I think the price paid was crazy high. I called around after I got the invoice and for the same work, I was quoted 50% less from 2 other providers. I was in a hurry and didn't have enough time to see if other businesses would be able to come on such short notice, but otherwise I will not use their service again. YMMVread more

Chris Deguire was considerate calling to let us know, as we neared the expiry of his call time, that he was going to be another... 30 -45 minutes late. He was courteous and offered an optional replacement for our faucet that was guaranteed and high quality. We didn't need to replace our faucet but appreciate having an option. Really nice guy. Did a great job!read more

I asked my daughter to help me Google search for a plumbing company. She said, Call a Plumber has 5 star reviews!!I am so... glad she recommended this company to me because right from the first phone call to the office, I felt like I was in good hands. Call a Plumber demonstrated excellent customer service, advanced skill/education and expertise.The job entailed an upgrade of plumbing in a laundry room: reroute the exposed drain pipe to an ‘in the wall’ drain pipe. Chris installed new drainage pipes, flushed water lines and cleaned up the overall look and functionality of the space. Call a Plumber put forth the absolute best, professional plumbing service, exceeding my expectations. I highly recommend you.! Thank you.!!read more

We had a leak in our basement and I could not figure out where it was coming from. I had visions of me having to cut into walls... to find the problem. After researching plumbers in Nanaimo, I sent a note on Sunday evening to Call a Plumber. Tina called me in the morning and she was awesome! She said that someone would be there at 10:00, not the typical we will be there between 9 and 5! Ron showed up at exactly 10:00 and diagnosed the problem and promptly fixed the issue. Ron was super competent, courteous and knew what he was doing. This is a phenomenal company with amazing people and service!read more

We are new to Vancouver Island and recently purchased a home in Nanaimo. Upon using our washing machine for the first time, we... discovered that it flooded the lower level of our home. Chris arrived and got right to work to determine the cause of the problem.Unfortunately the problem is much larger than we hoped, however, Chris was able to clearly communicate his findings and help to formulate a plan, all while still being sensitive to our budget.I will be recommending his service to any and all who are in need of quality plumbing services.read more

We had a leaky toilet, as well as needing to have all our water lines changed to braided lines for preventative maintenance. ... Chris was great to work with and promptly sent Ron out to do the job. Ron was very pleasant, well mannered and professional. He managed to get into some very tight spaces in order to get to the lines. Our leaky toilet has been rebuilt and all our water lines are of the best quality and all of this has been reassuring since we live on the 3rd floor in a condo complex. I give 5 stars to Call a Plumber as they go out of their way to get the job done right and are very fair to work with. Would definitely use them again.read more
