Shea Apartments is a family-owned company established in 1881. The company started as a small plumbing company and has become one of the largest civil construction contractors and home builders in the country.
They take pride in the care they provide to the people they serve and offer high-quality amenities in all their communities. No exception is Seaside Apartments, a Cape Cod-style apartment community located in Laguna Niguel, California.
With resort-style pools and spas, a community gym, and “a collection of one-and two-bedroom apartment homes that have it all,” it’s no wonder this location is highly sought after. The apartments have it all, except for upgraded toilets, and that is where Bottom Line Utility Solutions came in.
With over 950 units on the property, Seaside Apartments knew that changing out its older toilets to updated water-efficient toilets was important, but a mammoth task. Through our thorough analysis of the property’s utility expenses, our dedicated rebate team certified Project Management team, and outstanding installation crew, BLUS, Inc. was able to provide a customized plumbing solution that exceeded Seaside’s expectations and helped save over a million gallons of water per year.
In addition to the toilets that were upgraded, BLUS, Inc. also changed out over 500 Nest Thermostats, kitchen faucet aerators, and bathroom faucet aerators, providing Seaside an estimated 34% energy savings and 30% water savings. Bottom Line has continued upgrading products for several other Shea Apartments.
As the third-largest municipal utility in California, San Francisco Public Utilities Commission serves 2.7 million residential, commercial, and industrial customers in the Bay Area. They are at the forefront of conservation, and their mission is to “provide customers with high quality, efficient and reliable water, power and sewer services in a manner that is inclusive of environmental and community interests.”
With over 880,000 residents, the City knew they had a significant, but essential water conservation job on their hands. In 2017, the Plumbing Fixture Replacement Program (PREP) was started, and BLUS, Inc. was the licensed contractor selected for the job. Since then, BLUS. Inc. has replaced over 2800 commercial and residential toilets, 400 urinals, and 800 flushometers with highly efficient ones.
By replacing old, inefficient toilets with Water Senselabeled models, and the average family can reduce water used for toilets by 20 to 60 percent, that is nearly 13,000 gallons of water savings for your home every year! They could also save more than $110 per year in water costs, and $2,200 over the lifetime of the toilets.

With its historical landmarks, downtown ambiance, and central location in the Sierra Nevada foothills between the Sacramento Valley and Lake Tahoe basin, Placerville offers a wealth of adventure and historic charm. The city offers tours of its historic museums, gold rush lodging, and Old City Hall year-round. Having tourists and visitors all year long meant that the city needed to have reliable lighting for all of its historic markers and monuments, which is why they reached out to BLUS, Inc.
After replacing thousands of inefficient lights from the city’s historic buildings such as the police dept., old city hall, town hall, city hall, and the aquatic center, BLUS, Inc. was able to help the City of Placerville lower its annual kW usage from almost 700,000kW to just over 300,000kW, saving the city almost $40,000 annually on utility spending.

The City of Bell is a small, vibrant city. Although the city is small, it is known as the key to industry due to its location in the heart of the central Los Angeles Industrial Market. In 2019, the city came to BLUS, Inc. with a request to increase its water efficiency at some of its historical buildings. BLUS, Inc. replaced several inefficient urinals, faucets, and flush valves at many of the city’s historical buildings, including the Chamber of Commerce, City Hall, Police Station, Community Center, and Veterans Memorial. Upon completion, the City was satisfied with the work performed and savings attained through BLUS, Inc.’s services.

The Bottom Line Team is top notch and I would certainly recommend to anyone contemplating using them for work at one of their assets, especially when it comes to gaining access into occupied units/areas. They are quick and clean....the feedback I have received from Community and Regional Managers alike as well as VP's of Operations related to each of our assets they have completed work at within CA, AZ, NV, and WA over the past seven years has been nothing but positive. Everyone from Dave, Rob, Aaron, Liz, Rudy, the list goes on...all highly organized, easy to work with and thorough with pre-construction meetings including follow up/follow through to ensure all items are covered and completed. The Bottom Line team has completed a variety of plumbing retrofits, interior and exterior lighting retrofits, sub panel, attic inspection and corrective work, pool pump upgrades, Carbon Monoxide wholesale replacements, Gas and Electrical sub meter replacements which included coordinating with the CA Dept. of Weights and Measures... not a simple task and done flawlessly, additionally assisted in solar analysis projects. Again, an honest/hardworking group of folks to work with and would highly recommend to others.
