Meet Cedric Johnson, Jr. Certified, Licensed Monterey Plumber

I learned the plumbing trade from my dad, Cedric Johnson, Sr., after graduating from Seaside High School here on the Monterey Peninsula (Go Spartans!). He took me on as an apprentice and employee for seven years in his company, Jr’s Plumbing & Drain.


I was privileged to go out on thousands of calls with some of the best master plumbers in California, and received my contractor’s license from the California State Licensing Board. My father has been a wonderful mentor to me; a true professional who taught me what it means to value a client’s time by showing up promptly, and working diligently to solve any plumbing problem reliably and quickly with attention to detail and quality.

In 2017, I moved back to the Monterey Bay area with my wife and son and opened my own business. My vision for After Hour Plumbing and Drain is to become the number one, local, go-to plumbing professional you will want to call to install or fix any problem in your plumbing system anytime and anywhere in the Monterey Bay area. I provide plumbing services 24/7 all-year-round and am committed to responding to your plumbing needs and emergencies with the highest level of quality service and workmanship.


We’re always here for you days, nights and weekends. Call Cedric Johnson at (831) 717-7329 when you need help. I pick up the phone when others don’t.


We talk with our clients directly and show up in person to diagnose and discuss your plumbing needs and the best solutions.


No surprises when the bill comes for your plumbing service. We provide honest and clear pricing and estimates of the costs for any project, large or small

Plumbing and Drainage Frequently Asked Questions

·        How do I know when it’s time to replace my water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to replace your water heater when you see one or more of these signs: 1) water is pooling around the base of the heater 2) you hear noises like banging or rumbling inside the heater 3) your hot water appears rust-colored, or 4) when you can’t remember the last time you replaced your water heater. Depending on the make, model and amount of usage, you can expect your water heater to give you good service for about 10 to 15 years. All Hour Plumbing and Drain specializes in water heater installation and maintenance.

·        Is it safe to use chemical drain cleaners?

Chemical drain cleaners contain dangerous, highly toxic chemicals that are not advisable to keep in a house with children or pets, or to use in your home’s plumbing pipes, since the chemicals will cause the pipes to deteriorate and eventually fail. Ask Cedric to advise you on safer alternatives that use enzymes and friendly bacteria as a preventative measure to keep grease and sludge from building up in your plumbing system.

·        Why does the toilet keep running?

In most cases, toilets will keep running when the flapper is either not closing or not sealing properly around the flush valve. This causes water to continue leaking into the toilet and the tank does not fill completely with water to push the floater up and turn off the flow. If the flapper does not close from time to time, giving the flush handle a jiggle will often fix the issue. However, if the flapper is old and not sealing properly, it will need a replacement part.

·        What can I put in my garbage disposal?

You can safely put any soft foods like cooked vegetables or eggs into the garbage disposal, as long as you run water from the tap into the sink while running it. Garbage disposals, however, are not macerators, and if you put bones, egg shells, coffee grounds or other types of hard food into it, the blade will wear out and the food that cannot be broken down could jam the unit. Call After Hour Plumbing and Drain to unclog or repair your garbage disposal, or install a new one.

·        What is causing clogged drains in my kitchen sink and bathtub?

In many cases, clogged drains in kitchens occur when cooking grease, food and other items collect in the pipe and cause a blockage. Other drains, such as those in a bathroom sink and bathtub, clog from soap residues and hair. As a plumbing system ages, sometimes roots get in through cracks in the pipes and grow until the drain is impassable and backs up. To get your drains unclogged, snaked, or rooted out, call Cedric to diagnose and fix the problem. If your entire water line or sewer line system is old and causing you repeated problems, he is an expert at re-piping partial or entire plumbing systems with the copper, brass, PEX or ABS piping that will last for decades.
