Craig Johnson Plumbing- No job too big or too small
Craig Johnson Plumbing has been serving their neighbors in Nevada and Placer Counties since 2004. Craig and Denise, along with their two daughters, have made Grass Valley their home since 1999. They started their family-owned business so that they could raise their girls in this small, friendly community, which allowed them the freedom to attend any and all school functions.
Now that their daughters are adults they’ve had more time to focus on the growth of their family business. Craig Johnson Plumbing recently moved to a larger location at 10841 Rough and Ready Hwy. in Grass Valley. They’ve added five additional plumbers to their business family and are equipped to do all phases of plumbing, Residential and Commercial. No job too big or too small…from a clogged drain to re-plumbing your home, CJP is up for the task.
Craig, Denise and their crew are never too busy to answer your call. Whether you have an emergency or would like to schedule a service call at your home or office you can count on them! CJP owners and employees pride themselves on offering fast, reliable and fair service to all of their clients.
“We are truly flattered and honored to have won Best Plumbing Service for the past two years from the readers of The Union,” said Denise & Craig Johnson. “We are a business that prides ourselves on word of mouth and referrals. A referral is a highest form of flattery; when a client refers family and friends to our business it represents an appreciation of a job well done and is a stamp of approval that speaks volumes.” So we thank the Union readers for giving us their stamp of approval for the second year in a row!

We received the sweetest email yesterday – and with permission we are sharing ❤
“I just want to send you a belated thank you. You came out to our house at the end of May 2016. It was a bit of an emergency…because I was in labor! When we got home from the hospital the pipe was fixed and our water was working perfectly. A few weeks later we received this adorable onesie in the mail. Too cute!!”
Thank you again for your wonderful service.

Do you have a plumber? OR do you scramble looking for one? We are here for you when your plumbing is acting up or when you’d like to schedule a non-emergency remodel, fixture upgrade, water heater, new toilet, garbage disposal, annual drain maintenance…just to name a few. Avoid emergency situations by identifying your local plumber who will be there when you need them. No need to panic, call Craig Johnson Plumbing for all of you plumbing needs. Plumbing…it’s what we do so you don’t have to!
It’s that time of year…Our local newspaper The Union ask the community to vote for their favorites, favorite restaurant, favorite salon, favorite local non-profit, favorite PLUMBER – just to name a few. We were so fortunate to win this honor last year for 2015 Best of. This year we are again in the running and are so lucky to be named on the ballot for the Best Plumber. The feedback from our community has made this award mean that we’ve done our job, and we’ve done it well. If you feel so inclined to take the time to vote – we sincerely hope you’d consider a vote for us.
We love when our customers make a shout out to our community – This one is on Nevada County Peeps (our local cheers and jeers). Thank you Andy for showing us some love – we appreciate you and so happy we left your bathroom cleaner than when we got there! If you have a plumbing issue that needs some attention give us a call, email or facebook message us!

In accordance with the requirements of the California Code of Regulations, Title 17, Chapter V, Sections 7583 to 7605 inclusive, the city as a water supplier has the responsibility to prevent contamination of the public water system by backflow. No water service connection to any premises shall be installed or maintained by the city unless the public water supply is protected, as required by the state.
If you’re still confused – call us! We can help – we can set your mind at ease and get you what you need!
If you’ve lived in the Grass Valley / Nevada County area for a few years or more–and especially if you live above 2500′ or so–chances are you’ve been pinched by the winter weather at least a couple times. And if that pinch involved your water pipes or plumbing, you probably don’t ever want to feel it again.
We don’t want you to feel it either–so we’ve put together 5 easy ways to make it through the winter without any plumbing-related pain.
1) Insulate your pipes
The first and most obvious step to take to protect against is to insulate hot and cold water pipes in the crawlspace under your house as well as in the basement, attic, and exterior walls (if accessible) with snap-on foam insulation. Make sure foam insulation fits tightly without gaps. Apply duct tape to joints in insulation, and miter foam around elbows, so joints in pipes are completely covered.
2) Stow the Hose and Cover the Bibs
Hose bibs–the outside faucets where you attach your hose–are one of the most common places for frozen pipes to burst. If you leave a hose connected to the bib, the water in the hose can damage the bib from the outside upon freezing. Disconnect and drain garden hoses from hose bibs.
Even with the hose removed, exposed bibs and the outside pipe are extremely vulnerable to the cold. Protect exterior hose bibs around your foundation, with insulated foam covers found at any local hardware store.
3) Turn Off and Drain your Irrigation System
Water left sitting in the pipes of your sprinkler/irrigation system will expand when it freeze and that can cause a lot of damage–to your sprinkler heads and other components, as well as the pipes themselves. Some systems will have a manual drain, located at the lowest point of your irrigation. Other systems might not be so simple; if you’re unsure, call your landscape install professional or a qualified plumber.
4) Do a Leak Check
Do you have any known leaks that you’ve been putting off? Fix them before they become a bigger problem. And take a few minutes (and a flashlight) to check the visible pipes and joints inside and outside. Better to find them now than in January (or worse, on Christmas Eve.)
5) Keep the Furnace On
If you are going out of town, don’t turn your furnace off. Instead schedule your thermostat to keep your home warm to avoid frozen pipes. The few bucks you’ll spend on that heat is a small price to pay to avoid coming home to a water-damage nightmare.
Bonus Tip: Bring in the Pros
We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that the safest and easiest way to take care of all this stuff is to call your local full-service plumber and let them deal with it all. They know what to look for*, they have the parts and supplies needed to get the job done*, and they have the experience to do it right* so you can sleep easy (and dry) throughout the winter season, no matter what elevation in the Sierra Foothills you call home.
*They do for sure, if “they” are Craig Johnson Plumbing. We can’t speak for everyone! 😉
Just another day at the office…however, today included a little help from Auburn Crane and a big thanks to Ray Byers at Byers for getting Auburn Crane on short notice. When Maria’s Mexican Restaurant in Grass Valley needed a new water heater we were up for the challenge.
Craig Johnson Plumbing is a full service plumbing company able to meet all of your needs in a single bound – it’ a bird, it’s a plane…no, it’s a water heater!
