The Story Behind “The Barefoot Plumbers” in Redding, CA
Al and Donna Wallner established Wallner Plumbing Heating & Air Conditioning in 1968. Upon relocating the family from the Southern California area, Al went to work for Kreider Plumbing for a short time before being made the offer of a lifetime. The offer was to purchase Mr. Kreider’s business, including his truck, tools, and customer list.
During the winter of 1968, one of the first jobs that Al Wallner went on after taking over the business from Jim Kreider was for Dr. Keye. Upon arriving at the house, Al noticed that they just had new white carpet installed, and with the nasty weather outside, he took off his shoes. When he went inside, Mrs. Keye exclaimed “I never had a barefoot plumber before.” And thus was born the “Barefoot Plumbers.”
