In good hands

Jeff recommended a solution and the price seemed reasonable. We didn't shop around. He did call when he couldn't make it and we rescheduled. He seems reliable.

Frozen Outdoor & Broken Copper Pipe

Jeff has provided service on 2 occasions this year: 1. In July 2019 he serviced - my mom's old Victorian home. He was professional, arrived on time and repaired a number of plumbing issues including clogged sinks, broken toilets, and leaky faucets. 2. More recently, and even though I shut off the valve for the outdoor faucet from inside my home, I forgot to drain the pipe outdoors and left my hose attached. When a cold snap hit Toronto in early November 2019, I broke my pipe while trying to open up the faucet to allow drainage during the winter months. Jeff replaced the valves, faucet and copper piping from inside to out. The job was complicated by having inside cabinets that needed to come off the wall to access the old shut off valve, which Jeff handled. I now have an additional small valve from the inside to ensure all the water has drained out of the pipe from the shut off valve to the outdoor faucet. On both occasions, Jeff provided a detailed estimate of all the work required and completed excellent service. The bonus is that he is an absolute pleasure to deal with and is very trustworthy. I highly recommend Jeff to handle all your plumbing needs. Keep on plumbing and drumming Jeff!

Amazing Service

I phoned Great Plumbing Co. because of the great reviews on HomeStars. I was not disappointed. Jeff was able to fit me in his busy schedule. My condo was experiencing leaking from some exhaust pipes in our furnace room. He quickly assessed the problem, but what i loved about this experience was that he helped me identify some other problem issues in my furnace room. As a result I was able to get my water tank and furnace fixed as I didn't realize they were also in need of maintenance. He genuinely cared and was super helpful throughout the process. I will be going to his company from now on in. I completely trust his opinion when it comes to my plumbing needs. Thank you!

Powder room back up

We had a party that inevitably ended up with one of the bathrooms backed up. I booked online post-party and was able to book Jeff to be onsite the next morning. He was professional and efficient and cleared up all the issues, no problem. He also clearly outlined what his process would be and any possible alternative outcomes. Would definitely recommend The Great Plumbing Co for the impressive service.

Install new kitchen faucet

I was looking for a plumber to install a new kitchen faucet and Jeff quoted a reasonable price and seemed trustworthy. He did a great job installing the faucet, but said that because the previous faucet had been improperly installed, water had seeped under the counter. He had fixed that problem, but noted that the faucet might loosen up as the wood dried, and that I should call him if that happened. It did happen, and Jeff happily came out and tightened it up at no cost to me.

Fantastic customer service, reasonable prices and a good guy. Highly recommend Jeff.

Emergency repair of a leaking basement pipe

My experience with The Great Plumbing Company was excellent! Unlike many of the more major repairs needed in other reviews, my repair was smaller, but it was urgent (water was leaking out of a pipe and into my basement). So I really appreciated that Jeff showed up on time (and kept me informed that he was en route). He did the repair quickly and cleanly, and didn't try to upsell me on needing more of this or that (as I've often found other contractors or repairpeople tend to do, as I have an old house). A bonus: the repair was even cheaper than I anticipated! Jeff was warm, courteous and professional through the whole cycle of the repair. I am really happy to have found a reliable plumber whom I will definitely contact again in the future, as well as recommend to others, for jobs both large and small.

Clogged drain

We became aware of the Great Plumbing Company through a search on the HomeStars website. After contacting them by phone, our same day appointment was immediately confirmed by text and email. They arrived, diagnosed the problem, and provided a quote to correct the problem. The work was done quickly, neatly, and to our satisfaction. We would highly recommend The Great Plumbing Co. for your plumbing requirements. They are courteous, thorough, and most of all, very professional.

Repairs to washing machine valves

I called the Great Plumbing Company, and their admin answered quickly. She was friendly, and set up an appointment quickly for me within a three hour window. The plumber, Jeff, showed up, and explained the work that needed to be done and how much it would cost. He worked quickly and professionally, and when he went to shut off the home's main water, he noted it could use replacing over the next year or two, since it was original to the house (which was built in the 1920s) and it was very difficult to turn off. There was no pressure from him to fix it at that point, but he wrote up a clear estimate for it.

I'd definitely recommend the company: great communication, on time, and work was done well.
