Our Story

In 1978, the first iteration of Starving Plumbers was founded as Economy Plumbing. From Day-1 we always wanted to highlight value as the most important benefit for customers. But for whatever reasons, Economy Plumbing never became the household name we had dreamed about. So after a comprehensive, thought-provoking, creatively-intense brainstorming session, we came up with Starving Plumbers, and the name clicked. (It must have, or you wouldn't have clicked on starvingplumbers.com.) 

We moved to our former location in Larkspur Landing in 1985 and stayed there until 2015 when we then migrated northward to our current Terra Linda location. We're centrally located just off 101 with quick, easy access to virtually every city and town in Marin. And we've had a good run since the beginning.

Although we still highlight value as one of the most important benefits to our customers, our high-level personal customer service is equally important and sets us apart from the competition. In essence, our experienced plumbers are the plumbing experts for Marin's value-conscious customers, which includes anyone who wants extraordinary, personalized service for their plumbing needs. Our goal is to build our business person-by-person, relationship-by-relationship, and referral-by-referral.
