Santa Monica - June 24, 2019

Yesterday Sergio Velazquez came to my home to cap the copper coil to my defunct refrigerator's ice maker so that today delivery men could take it away and install my new refrigerator that had been sitting outside my front door. Mr. Velazquez detected the water turn-off location (under my never-used wet bar in my living room) and completed the whole job with deft expertise in about 15 minutes. Clearly, he is an excellent plumber--but he is entirely personable and friendly and that is a welcome plus. Beyond this he commented with appreciation and interest in my elaborate Victorian furniture and lamps and light fixtures, accented with of all things neon advertising clocks and Four Roses whisky and Eastside beer collectibles. In my more than 43 years in this place nobody has dug it with such enthusiasm and curiosity. He really cheered me up in the face of the tedious process of replacing an old refrigerator with a new one. You are fortunate to have him on your staff.

We used Jo-Mi for the first time recently -- the actual plumber was a young man named Mike. Over the years we've used a number of large plumbing contractors for various tasks, and haven't been fully satisfied.

We decided to try Jo-Mi because it was a local, family-owned business. Two trips were required because of technical details, and it was well worth it. Mike did an excellent job repairing the flow and the aerator for a Dornbracht faucet, as well as a number of other minor maintenance projects.

Responsible, and fine craftsman. Highly recommended!

We have relied on Jo-Mi Plumbing for the last two years. A company's culture draws its character from the top down, and every one of the Jo-Mi employees who have visited our home have dealt with us on time, professionally, and known what they are doing. This reflects well on the Uyeda family's leadership. Most recently, a fire line leaked in our home, which was built in 2012. While this is the province of a fire sprinkler company, Kelvin graciously assisted me on the phone in isolating the system, and identifying the correct sub to call. The Uyeda family is old school in the best sense of the word.

Jo-Mi has been plumbing for me since 1966. They are honest, diligent and the workers always clean up after themselves. They are punctual and if something isn't right they will come right back and fix it again. Their workmanship is great. One time I had Roto-Rooter come out and it wasn't nearly as good a service - they were sloppy and dirty. I have never used another plumber since.

I have a very long relationship with Jo-Mi Plumbing going back to the late 1980's. They do all of the repairs, maintenance and tenant improvements on our building. They are very honest and reliable and whatever price Kelvin gives me he honors. I know all of the crew and technicians in the company and they all do an excellent job. I have recommended them frequently to other building managers.

We’ve worked with Jo-Mi Plumbing for over 20 years and they’ve taken care of all our plumbing needs here at home. They’ve always been so responsive, are extremely accommodating and nice. Jo-Mi has consistently diagnosed problems and resolved them beautifully. They are great at letting me know what options I have, and I’ve always found their prices to be amazing. Easy to work with and always reliable.

We have been using Jo-Mi for years for our 1939 bungalow and have always had a pleasant experience with them even under emergency plumbing conditions. They are professional, hard-working, and reasonably priced. I would recommend them absolutely.

Westwood - December 3, 2009

We've been using Jo-Mi for over 15 years. They have been responsible for keeping the plumbing running in our 1929 Spanish house. They have been remarkably sympathetic to our desire to maintain the vintage fixtures and have come up with some creative solutions. They recently re-piped our entire house for a very reasonable price and found a way to do it without breaking through any original tile. Michael, Robert, and Rudy are a pleasure to have around; they're like part of the family now. The staff is very responsive and willing to take the time to explain what they recommend and why. I never feel as though I'm bothering them when I ask for more information. We look forward to using them for another 15 years.

It is my pleasure to tell you about Jo-Mi Plumbing. We bought a house in Beverly Hills in 1976 and Kelvin had been taking care of us now for thirty-three years. I first met this marvelous person, Gene, at Jo-Mi and they have been taking care of us ever since. Whenever I call their response is immediate and the work is professionally done. Gene, Allen and Fernando, along with Kelvin are terrific! I only have the highest praise for Jo-Mi Plumbing!

We were moving and I needed our washer and dryer prepared for the move. Jo-Mi Plumbing was really responsive to my call, prompt and helpful. Everyone I dealt with was friendly and accommodating. They arrived early and worked within our schedule. Their employees are courteous, caring and professional. I felt comfortable having them in my home. Their quote was reasonable and they stuck with it. I also appreciate that they have a friendly, efficient office staff to provide support when they are out in the field. I will definitely call them again.J

I’ve been using Jo-Mi for about ten years now. Their office is right in my neighborhood. They have had the same bright and thoughtful employees for years. I know the owner and the plumbers. I have a four-unit apartment building in West LA and they know every room in the building. In fact, they were just here this morning. They are always polite. I adore that they take their shoes off before coming into a room. I had a sewer back up and when it was repaired they actually cleaned the shower. I contact them by phone and email. Their pricing is in line with other plumbing companies, but their service is so much better. They have also worked in my home and for my neighbors. All of their employees are fantastic, but I always ask for Rudy because he knows my home and apartments best. He is pretty popular, though, so sometimes there is a wait for Rudy. Jo-Mi Plumbing always gets it right. When it is fixed, it is fixed. When they come out they really hear me. They tell me what they are going to do to fix the problem. They watch out for my wallet, too, not trying to sell me the highest priced solution.

We originally had a plumber that the framing contractor hired. He smoked in the house, was an angry guy and would throw boards around when he lost a pipe. I fired him.

I looked back to Neighbor2Neighbor which I had saved. I remembered reading about Kelvin at Jo Mi Plumbing, that he had progressive ideas and practices for heating, cooling and plumbing.

Kelvin worked really hard and he is innovative. He researched how to heat our house with a tankless water heater. The water heats coils and the furnace blows air over the hot coils. He added a heat box that sends the hot water where it is needed most. If the furnace is on and you turn on the shower, the heat box will send the hot water to the bathroom. This system is a far superior way to heat a home. It works great. You never run out of hot water and my heating bills are low. Kelvin saved us money and energy by not using a regular furnace.

Kelvin has dedication that I have never seen in another contractor. A couple of times he worked with me until 7 or 8 o’clock at night when I know he wanted to get home to see his kids. I would never call anyone else. He is by far the best tradesman we’ve had on the whole renovation.

Kelvin headed up the job, but he had a half dozen guys working here and they were great.

I have complete and total faith and trust in Kelvin. As owner-builder, I am the general contractor, so I have been helping Kelvin. He is extremely accommodating. If I want to change a pipe they do it. It’s part of his dedication to getting the job right.

I’ve used Jo-Mi for twenty years. They always do a great job and go far beyond what I expect. If they need to order parts, they take care of it right away – no delays. A very fine organization – very conscientious!

Jo-Mi has worked on several projects for us over the past fifteen years. They completely re-did our plumbing and did a great job. I also use them for any heating problems we have. Time really is money, and they are always on time and take care of business – very professional!

Jo-Mi installed a tankless water heating system for us. They provided excellent solutions to our existing plumbing problems. The workers were ultra-careful. We needed to have a 100 gallon tank removed from our property; and they took care of it, no problem!
