The year 1984 was a busy year. Several major historical events happened, cultural staples of the 1980s hit the charts, and we founded Plumbing Concepts. While many of the bands from that time have broken up, and historical figures have passed away or retired away from the limelight. However, at Plumbing Concepts, we’re still going strong to provide plumbing installations for new constructions and quality repairs for homeowners throughout Southern California.

What Happened in Los Angeles in 1984?
What about Los Angeles in 1984? The city was preparing to be the only American city to twice host the Summer Olympics. It also became the first city with two telephone area codes, forcing locals to learn 10-digit phone numbers to call others in the area.
