Powers Plumbing.

Since 1914, we have been providing quality plumbing service and repair to San Diego residents from our shop in a small commercial section of Mission Hills. Our mission is to provide quality plumbing for the health and safety of our community.

In 1914, Luther Powers started this plumbing contractor business in Downtown San Diego and he made his way to Mission Hills. In 1923, we opened our current shop location. In 1969, we incorporated as L B Powers & Son. The employees of the shop have carried on the legacy started by Luther Powers who left it to his son Calvin Powers. Recently, Phil Stull has semi-retired and has transferred the legacy to Janet O'Dea who has been named as the President of the Company. Phil has stepped down but still has a guiding hand in the training of the younger plumbers so the tradition of passing the baton to our employee continues

L.B. Powers & Son has served multiple generations of families as our clients throughout the area. Today our clients ask us for plumbing, gas piping and heating service and repair on historic homes, newer buildings and on remodels and restorations. We are specialists and have experience fixing a great variety of plumbing systems simply because our clients properties range from homes built in the late 1800's to new renovations and everything in between. This gives us a unique experience that we apply when we work with you to serve your plumbing or heating needs.

We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.


In response to our customer satisfaction surveys, homeowners share lots of comments about construction quality, communication, or any other question asked in the survey. Guildmembers can selectively publish these comments here on their profile page.


Reviews are different than comments. These are star ratings that homeowners ask us to publish, and they come with a written description of the type of experience they had working with their contractor. We publish all of the reviews we receive: positive and negative alike.
