    Showed up on time as expected did a great job was thorough and the problem solved would’ve been five stars but my finger actually touched four and the program doesn’t allow you to correct it

    Our experience with John Barbosa was absolutely one of the most horrific experiences of our lives. This man is rude, incompetent and a danger to anyone who makes the mistake of hiring him. This is a report from Power Plumbing, the company we had to hire correct and complete the job: Hello – following are our plumber Brian’s findings on your water heater installation code violations and corrections. The first two photos have arrows pointing to code violations, the third photo is the corrected installation. When Brian arrived he noted many issues with installation by others, including: broken venting, wrong material used for water supply lines per code, wrong material for T&P line and it was not glued or supported, earthquake strapping was not installed correctly, gas line was too long with no drip leg, and water supply lines were reversed. No expansion tank as per code. Basically we had to completely uninstall and reinstall from scratch. Other installer had used wirsbo water supply lines which per code are not allowed to be within 18” of water heater exhaust, this is a fire hazard. The hole in the venting was allowing carbon monoxide to flow freely into the garage and from there possibly into the living space. Corrected all issues, installation is now up to code. I hope someone is able to revoke any licenses he may have to save anyone else the misery we were forced to endure because of John Barbosa's incompetency and insulting behavior.

    Plumber John was an excellent choice for me to do my gas line connection to the kitchen as I wanted to switch gas range . John showed up on time and overall he did an amazing job with reasonable price as compared others. The most satisfying part was he would explain every step in detail as he would progress in the procedure. Safety concerns was his top priority. I highly recommend that you won’t regret hiring this guy 👍

How did you get started in this business?

While in the United States Armed Services, qualifying AIT 62M20 assinged to 14th engineers unit @ Ft. Leonard Wood, Mi. I learned value, disapline and responsability. Honorably discharged in 1976. I started a plumbing apprenticeship program @ P.H.C.C in 1978, gradualated in 1981.

As a Journeyman Plumber in 1981, I become more familiar with residential plumbing service and repair, also experiencing new plumbing construction assignments in residential and custom home's. Therefore obtaining a total visual on: How and what is being installed and how to replace or repair.

I developing my style, or my way of resolving issues and situations to whereas today I feel the expertize of the plumber I am today. I also caught the name of, Plumber John as people ( customers, front office personnel ect.) noticed there were never a problem on invoices, tasks or assignments, the fraze: "problem gone" began attacthing itself to me and eventually sloganed into:

Call Plumber John #problemgone. 

That is when I desided to start a business to better serve the community. 

I am here today to save my customers money. I have them " less stressed". To give them a personal touch, my quality and assurance. To mentor and give back what was given to me, to enjoy the moments along the way, and Improve peoples lives.
