Bill Brink grew up in San Diego the son of a Real Estate Broker and as such acquired his Real Estate License immediately after high school. Bill performed numerous construction trades while working on family rental property, "flipping" homes, subdividing land, moving homes to family subdivided land, grading and building. As such, Bill became pretty skilled in real estate development and renovation.
In 1979, at the age of 23, Bill Brink started Brinks Plumbing and Heating by simply placing an ad in the newspaper touting services. The start up capital was $52.00 for the ad. The business was initially run out of a home located in the Kensington Community of San Diego.
As the service and repair portion of the company grew so did the need for electronic leak detection (new at the time) and plumbing investigations. Plumbing failure analysis would become an important component of insurance claims with manufacturers' defects being identified to subrogate the cost of claims.

During the polybutylene "Quest" lawsuits of the 1980's Bill Brink was called upon to provide testimony and later was asked by insurance companies to provide the same investigative services to them that he provided to the City of San Diego and other related companies.
In 1984, Bills quest to find better investigative tools led him to "Sea Snake". He performed R&D for "Sea Snake" who's under water camera was the first to view the Titanic and later developed to serve the plumbing industry. Bill began his R&D of custom electronic listening microphones and their uses, Bill continues this work today.
In 1985, Brinks added "Flood and Water Damage Restoration Services" to better serve the insurance industry. He earned the "Preferred Vendor" and "Quality Vendor" designations. In 2000 Brinks added the Pipelining Division, Bill did extensive research to ultimately find the industries best epoxies available. Brinks' has expanded to carry a matrix of pipe and drain lining products.
