Biography – Kelly started as a plumbing apprentice in Culver City, California. He started his own Plumbing Company in Marina Del Ray, California doing mostly new construction. After closing that company in 1978 he decided to move to Palm Springs, California. He went to work at Barrett Plumbing at that time they were one of the better known plumbing companies in the valley which lasted untill 1980. At that time he decided to go back into business again. This time, he had a partner Chuck Barrett who was the grandson to the owner of Barrett plumbing. This is how the company name of KC’s 23 1/2 Hour Plumbing was formed. Kelly bought Chuck out in 1980 and KC’s 23 1/2 Hour Plumbing has continued to service the valley for well over 30 years now.
“My true love has always been service and repair not new construction. I enjoy meeting and getting to know my clients as if they are family.” – Kelly Russum
