What Our Customers are Saying About Us

Oh my, what awesome service! The lady who took my call was very professional and courteous. Joseph, the plumber who came to our home, was very professional and knowledgeable. He quickly diagnosed the problem and was able to fix it right away. I can definitely see why this company has a five star rating! The employees are very friendly, and that goes a long way in customer service! Highly recommend.

Joyce W.

They were efficient, polite and did a great job. They found the way to fix the problem without charging me a fortune and I appreciated that so much. I recommend them highly as they were on time, did a great job and fixed the problem without costing me a fortune.

Sallie G.

Very professional and willing to answer questions! Shannon and Joseph were more than courteous to my home and me. Highly recommend this company for your plumbing needs. Very reasonably priced as well.

Ballard H.

Outstanding Service! Great communication. Great job taking the time to carefully explain my plumbing problems and different options to fix them. Seem to take much pride in their work and checked the new fixtures three times before leaving to make sure of no leaks. Very professional.

Rex S.

This was the second time that we needed the Plumbing Authority’s help in the past two years. On both occasions Bryan was thorough and took an interest in our dilemma. His work is top shelf, timely and affordable and you can’t ask for much more than that. It is quite refreshing at a time when many businesses have lost the concept of customer service. I will not hesitate to contact him in the future for any other plumbing needs. Thanks again Bryan.

Chris S.

Bryan and his team did an excellent job for us. We were turning a pantry closet into a 1/2 bathroom, and they roughed in all plumbing drains, vents and water lines for a two fixture bathroom. They tested and inspected all work. They respected our home and everything was left neat & clean. Pricing was fair. I would highly recommend The Plumbing Authority, and we will use them again!

Kathy F.

So very impressed with the high level of service The Plumbing Authority gave with regards to work we needed done in a Sevierville cabin where our cabinet company installed new cabinets. Extremely professional and able to handle every aspect of the job in a timely manner. HIGHLY recommended!

Kim B.

I would have given you more stars if I could have but there were only 5…Plumbing issues are notorious for being expensive and aggravating but Bryan made this a much easier experience. The 2 way clean out installation and the mainline rooting were both done professionally and with great care to my property. I will definitely continue to use PA’s services for my plumbing needs and highly recommend them.
