Bathroom repair

My toilet was running water constantly. The plumber arrived to fix it, early even! and immediately knew the problem and fixed it (a mechanical issue). Such great service! Would definitely recommend.

Bathtub draining

Harris Plumbing has been a joy to deal with. We have used them twice now for two separate issues and we could not be happier.
The ladies on the phone are friendly and helpful, even calling once the work is done to make sure we were happy.
The professionals who came to our home were knowledgeable, efficient and solved our problems.
I recommend Harris Plumbing to everyone, I won't use anyone else!

Great service

I needed some plumbing pipes removed and capped off. I called 4 other plumbers and none of them ever got back to me. I ended up calling Harris and they answered and booked me in right away. The plumber showed up and went over all the costs with me. Explained the work he would be doing. And everything went smoothly and quickly. Over all a great experience and I will be using them for all my plumbing needs moving forward.

Installation of Laundry Room vanity

From the first phone call (with Dekara) to the completion of the job (by Brendan), it was an excellent experience. All of the staff are pleasant, courteous and informative. Dekara made sure I had all the facts and information I needed to make a decision that was right for me. Brendan was respectful while in my house and mindful of the rules regarding Covid. He did an amazing job on the installation. He was able to trouble shoot the unexpected glitches with ease and was very patient in letting me ask numerous questions.
They also have an excellent Home Advantage Plan which is worth looking into.
I have recommended Harris Plumbing to others and will continue to do so.

My Lakehouse had no water pressure. Brandon solved it and checked everything : professionaly, quickly and fairly.

I called Harris Plumbing because the previous owner highly recommended them. I called on a Fri night. Within 12 hours I received a call back. Judy was really professional and helpful .
A date and time was scheduled. Plumber showed up. His name was Brandon. He was terrific. Did the work quick and neat and fair. Only plumbing company I’ll call in the future.
Thank you.

Water softener & conditioning

I contacted 3 companies to provide a water softener replacement for an old unit. Harris responded same day, and scheduled a prompt home visit. The plumber who visited gave clear advice, presented options and a comprehensive quote. I ordered a softener & conditioning system and the installation was scheduled within a week of the first visit. The same plumber who first visited performed the installation. Quite pleased with the quality of work performed and professionalism shown. Appreciated the efficient smartphone payment system and electronic invoicing. Overall great experience - would be happy to recommend to others.

Plumber professional and all work performed quickly and properly. All done in 1 1/2 hours. But, very expensive.
