What Ottawa Residents Say About John The Plumber
First of all thank you to Bill from John the Plumber for being so prompt and efficient. It was difficult to find services in Ottawa following the massive storm we just had on May 22nd, 2022. With the torrential down pouring we had, we were worried about our now 5 year old Sump pump and if would fail, but were fortunate to not lose power. Then we went outside after the storm and realized the devastation that was caused and how many power lines were down and just how many people lost power. We could have easily been one of those without power and our sump pump would never have worked to keep our basement dry. After helping our friends and neighbours who did lose power, we knew that a battery backup sump pump was essential to keep our home safe and have peace of mind. Bill from John the Plumber was amazing. He was polite and very knowledgeable, explaining all the options and how the new system would tie in. I was thoroughly impressed with his professionalism and how personable he was. He’s a true asset to your company, and does phenomenal work, keeping everything clean. Thank you.
“John the Plumber” came highly recommended by a friend. I called and explained that I had a vanity sink, tap and drain that needed to be installed and needed a plumber to do that for me. I was advised that they had a plumber available and that he would be about half an hour getting to my residence. Approximately 30 minutes later Matt, the plumber, arrived and after showing him the required work he advised me that it was a straight forward job and what the price would be. I was satisfied with his assessment and the price so Matt started the necessary work involved with the installation. The task took just over an hour to complete and I was very satisfied with the workmanship. Matt was also a very courteous and pleasant young man who was very neat, tidy and very efficient with his work.
I will certainly be recommending “John the Plumber” should anyone I know need a Plumber.
We are extremely pleased with our experience with John The Plumber. Geoff, Garrett and Dawson were professional, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable. They arrived at the beginning of the scheduled 3-hour window and completed the work in a quick and timely manner. Not only did they complete the work efficiently and thoroughly, they also provided advice on how we can effectively maintain the drain ourselves. We would highly recommend this team from John The Plumber. Thank you.
This is my third time using John the plumber and I am now a loyal customer. Garrett was fabulous, professional, and efficient (this was the second job Garrett did for us). The work was quickly and expertly completed. We are very happy with our new toilet and will definitely use their services for all of our future plumbing needs. Thanks again Garrett and John the plumber.
Excellent service from the two plumbers who showed up for my job. I think they were both named Eric. They were on time, removed my old toilet, installed the new one and left the place clean and free of debris/packaging. Very impressed.
John The Plumber has become my go-to for plumbing jobs of any size in Ottawa. The first plumber assigned to one of my jobs was Billy, who is just amazing. Recently I had a plumbing emergency and called for help – Billy was all booked up, but I figured if he represents the level of service the company strives for, likely the plumber they send will be good – maybe not Billy good, but good. Well, Lance was excellent – re-arranged his schedule to accommodate me because of the emergency nature of the job, called ahead, showed up exactly when promised, worked quickly, courteously and professionally, and our plumbing problem was fixed well in no time. Thanks again guys.
I had a major flood in my basement and called John the Plumber, Whom I have used in the past. The repair involved excavation of the basement floor, installing sump pumps, digging trenches and installing weeping tile. It was a very big job.The team, headed by Lance, was excellent. Lance took a lot of time explaining everything to me and making sure I understood what was being done. He was always available by phone and answered my calls and questions in a very timely manner. He was polite and friendly. His crew was efficient, courteous, and prompt. They also were very polite and greeted me with a hello and a smile. I am very satisfied with the work Lance and his crew Deb. I highly recommend John the plumber.
