Is it possible that America’s greatest inventor, diplomat, humorist, and one of the Founding Fathers, is now running a plumbing company that serves the East Bay from Alameda to Antioch, and Richmond to San Ramon?

Not exactly. The “Ben Franklin” refers to the $100 bill that John McCartney will give you if one of his uniformed journeymen plumbers shows up late.

“We’re the Punctual Plumber,” says McCartney, who has been running local plumbing businesses for more than 20 years.

“We’ve taken care of the two big problems everybody experiences with plumbers – that they usually show up for appointments late, or not at all; and that they always charge more than you expected.”

Together with his $100 punctuality promise, McCartney has created a per-job pricing structure, one that lets homeowners knows exactly how much – and not a penny more – a repair or installation will cost before the work starts.

Ben Franklin Plumbing services and replaces water heaters, toilets, faucets and perform sewer and drain cleaning. They also offer leak detection, trenchless sewer line replacement, and video camera inspections of sewer and drain lines to detect cracks and obstructions.

With appointments available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, this company understands that time is money for customers as well.

Last, but not least, Benjamin Franklin Plumbing offers an amazing performance guarantee: if you’re not satisfied with their service, they will refund your payment. If the repair fails within two years, they will repair it again…for free!

“It’s our ‘Peace of Mind’ warranty,” says John. “We go way beyond the State’s latest requirements for contractors. No other plumber offers the guarantees we do.”

Old Ben would be proud.
