Orange County Cities We Service
Dana Point has been the home of Jeff Shaffer Plumbing for over 20 years. The Shaffer boys have been attending the annual Turkey Trot and the Boat Parade ever since they were toddlers. We are proud to be residents of the city with the best burger (Shwack) and the best coffee (J.C. Beans.) We may service all of Southern Orange County, but Dana Point will always remain our favorite! We are also ranked one of the Best Plumbers in Dana Point!!
San Clemente is one of the most beautiful cities in California. Richard Nixon chose San Clemente as the perfect destination for his summer home, La Casa Pacifica, for a reason. It is home to arguably the best surf spots on the west coast (Trestles, Cottons, San Onofre, T Street, and more.) The Shaffer brothers attended San Clemente’s best private school, St Michaels Christian Academy, from second grade through middle school.
Laguna Beach is one of the world’s most luxurious seaside resorts. Every time we get a call from a Laguna Beach resident we have the privilege to drive alongside PCH and view the crystal clear water. The Shaffer family loves to attend the Pageant of the Masters, and visit all the exceptional restaurants located in Downtown.
Laguna Niguel is a wonderful place to live and we have been honored to serve its residents for over 20 years. The Shaffer family are big fans of China Moon and Romeo Cucina. Tanner Shaffer, Jeff Shaffer’s son, ran cross country at Aliso and Wood Canyons Regional Park back in high school.
Aliso Viejo is a charming town that is burrowed in the San Joaquin Hills and conveniently located just north of Laguna Niguel and east of Laguna Beach. Among its many gems, this city contains world-class entertainment provided by the Soka Performing Arts Center, which was designed by Yasuhisa Toyota, the same man who designed the acoustics for the Walt Disney Concert Hall. There are also numerous posh shopping and dining options, as well as acres of beautifully preserved regional parks that the whole family can enjoy.
When to Give Up and Search for a Local Plumber
Every plumber knows the old saying, “We repair what your husband fixed.” While there are lots of Do It Yourself plumbing jobs, there are some jobs that should only ever been done by a professional. At times, it may seem like you’re saving money by getting the job done yourself, but you could actually be causing further damage and in the end costing you a lot more than it would have in the first place. We don’t want that to happen. We value your time and your money. So here is a few pointers of how to identify when you can do it yourself and when it’s time to give up and grab that computer and call Jeff Shaffer Plumbing.
Here are a few projects that you should probably call a professional for:
Plumbing for Remodeling:
If you are doing any type of remodeling for your bathroom, kitchen, or backyard barbecue pit, you should definitely call a plumber. Not only can some of these projects be dangerous and risky, but also many of them require a permit to be worked on. Professionals are aware when a permit is required and what types of building codes are in place. They are aware of all of the safety regulations and limitations that come along with your remodeling project. Some projects that require a permit are re-piping, drain-line replacements, sewer replacements, and water heater replacements.
Water heaters, as previously mentioned, should not be replaced by anyone other than a licensed professional. They also should not be tampered with in any way. Often times, a water heater repair that may seem simple is actually extremely complex and can cause further damage if not handled properly. Call a professional for all of your water heater needs. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Showers and Tubs:
When installing new shower valves, bathtubs, and hot tubs, it is always best to call a professional. Changing a shower valve is a very complex process and the likelihood of further complications arising during the process is very great. There are many different options to choose from depending on your plumbing situation, and while this is probably extremely foreign to you, your professional knows what the best choices are. Taking on this project yourself could mean risking creating a whole heap of damage in your shower walls that you may no be prepared to deal with. As far as tubs go, they may seem alike a simple and easy installation job, but the reality is that they are just as complex, if not even more, than a shower valve replacement.
If you’re having complications with your tub or shower valve, your best bet is to search “plumber near me” and call a local professional. Another great rule of thumb is: If you’re not 100% sure, call a professional. After searching for a “Plumber Near Me” there are a few things that you should look for in a plumber that you are selecting. It is very important that your plumber follows The Five P’s of Plumbing and is professional, personable, offers a fair price, practices precision, and is an overall great plumber. Here are a few projects that if you have some basic plumbing knowledge and access to the internet (which can help to provide easy solutions) that are safe to do yourself:
Whether it’s a bathroom sink or a clogged bathtub drain, there are usually very simple solutions to problems like these. Most of the solutions can be found on helpful Do-It-Yourself websites and involve tools and chemicals that can be found at your local hardware store or superstore.
Toilet problems are always a pain, but unless they are consistent and reoccurring, it’s probably not necessary to call a professional. Toilet fixes such as stopping your toilet from running and unclogging can be as simple as 1, 2, 3. Depending on your bathroom and toilet, toilet removal and installation can also be a DIY project – call a professional to be sure. Don’t forget: If any of these Do-It-Yourself projects start to become a little too overwhelming it’s never too late to just stop what you’re doing a call a professional.
