Shower Drip and Running Toilet

The Harris plumber arrived on time and after hearing our description of the shower problem he described what needed to be done to fix the leak. The work was completed in a short time and the area was left clean and ready for immediate use. Before leaving he asked if we had any other areas of concern? We described how occasionally the toilet would run for no apparent reason. He described a possible cause and did a quick inspection. Showing us the problem he was able do a quick fix. This prevented future more serious issues.
We were impressed that the plumber had a high school Co-op student with him and was sharing details of the work he was doing.
We would definitely call Harris Plumbing when experiencing plumbing issues.

Emergency hot water tank repair

Had a leak in our hot water tank on a sunday morning. Called Harris. Nick called back within 20 min and arranged to come and look at it. overall outstanding service. He was polite, knowledgeable, courteous. He quickly repaired the tank and explained what he was doing. He provided an estimate before he started the work and stuck to that estimate. Best service call I've ever had for any issue.

Annual plumbing system inspection

This annual inspection is part of their maintenance plan. We pay an annual fee for the plan. The actual inspection is one of the benefits. The friendly office staff phoned us to set up a mutually agreeable time for it. The plumber arrived on time, was very courteous and knowledgeable. He took time to explain what he was doing. After thoroughly checking all of the components, he gave us a checklist along with his recommendations. We were very pleased with the process. The office phoned us afterwards to ask how everything went and if we had any further questions.

Highly Recommend Harris Plumbing

Great and reliable work. The service crew were on time and knowledgeable. The crew was also very friendly a great crew for sure.

I contacted 3 plumbers for work I needed done and Harris plumbing was the only one to call back. The other 2 I never got a call back. So I would highly recommend Harris Plumbing.

All staff is friendly and the customer service is fantastic.

I even got a follow up call the next day to check in to see how things went. Harris Plumbing cares about their customers.

Basement Drain Backup

The day before moving into a rental property we discovered the basement drain had backed up. We required emergency service to address so that we could prepare the property for moving the next day. I called Harris Plumbing and right from the start the customer service was outstanding. Cindy was very helpful and considerate of the situation and was able to secure a plumber in a timely manner. Scott, the plumber, showed up on time and patiently waited while we addressed the issue with the landlord, who lives out-of-country. Once ok'd he effectively and efficiently addressed the problem.

Super satisfied.

Excellent service

An extremely courteous plumber came on a late Sunday afternoon to quickly unclog my sewer drain. He then used a camera and sawed away remaing tree roots. I will definitely use this company again. Thank you!

Hello Vera and thank you so much for taking the time to share your Harris Plumbing experience with others! We really appreciate this.
We know that frustrating emergencies often happen on weekends and that's why we always have highly skilled plumbers ready 24/7 to help people in these urgent situations. Yes, it was Journeyman Plumber Rick Harris who came to see you that day and he is absolutely a wonderful and compassionate man. In fact, all our plumbers are amazing at what they do, and care deeply about providing the very best service for people - with a smile.
So thank you again Vera, it was a pleasure to serve you and we hope you will tell your friends and neighbours about us!
