Who We Are

Is this the right plumbing company for your emergency?

For any homeowner, a plumbing emergency is an unavoidable crisis. You may leave your house clean and dry only to return to a flooded house, or you may wake up just as you are about to wash your dishes to a clogged sink. In both cases, dealing with the situation on one's own can be difficult. Water and gas leaks, clogged drains, and broken toilets or faucets are all examples of common emergencies. When they occur, they are inconvenient and, if not corrected in a timely manner, can have disastrous consequences.

If you experience any of these situations, don't wait. Contact us as soon as possible.

Experience and Passion in All We Do

Each one of our employees and technicians is excited to come to work every day and serve their community. We love meeting new people, forming long-lasting relationships, and helping customers maintain and upgrade their homes. Our company is set up to ensure you get the highest level of service. Our technicians aren't paid on commission, we stick to the original set timelines, and we stay on the job until you're satisfied with the result.

It's fulfilling and gratifying to provide a service that regular people actually need, and it's a big part of what keeps us all going every day. Our founder Mark McGinnis began this company in 1984 and was only the 2nd residential plumbing and drain company in San Jose. At just 19 years old, he found a trade that he had a passion for and so his journey began. His philosophy would stand the test of time: To provide affordable services for everyone equally. Whether you are a business, a homeowner, a tenant, or a property manager, The Great American Plumbing Co, Inc offers affordable upfront same-rate service to all customers alike.

Customer Service Comes before Everything Else

If every customer we meet doesn't feel like they've had a positive experience, then we haven't done our job right. Our goal is to create customers for life after that first service call, so making you feel like you're the only customer we have is paramount. We have worked hard to make that a priority in our day to day service and that is why we have an extensive existing customer base that returns year after year.

As of 2022 we actually have 3rd generation customers!

Our team and technicians treat your home with the utmost respect, are polite and courteous during every communication, and explain exactly what we will be doing before we do it. We are very proud to say that the majority of our technicians have been with us for over 20 years! Not many trade companies can say this! Our new team members also go through background checks and drug tests before they can be selected to represent The Great American Plumbing Co, Inc name!
