New to Waterloo…Amazing Service
“Hi Ed, I have just had one of your plumbers leave my house. His name is Kyle and I wanted to take the time and mention how good of a service he did here and the time and details that were observed when hooking up my water line to my fridge.
It was such a small job that I considered doing it myself, but I am not a big fan of playing with water and handling leaks. So I wanted to have it done by a professional and I am very glad I did.
The office team was great as well, with Cherry helping me set this up yesterday, answering all of my questions and even getting me to speak with Kyle himself to sort some details out. He was available a little earlier today and someone called me asking if he could arrive earlier, which he did and got me going without hiccups.
You cannot pay these people enough. Amazing service... We are new to Waterloo area and this was the first plumbing job we did. I am glad we can trust and recommend you now.” – Rick O.
Impressed By Your Professionalism
"Hi Ed, We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere appreciation for your service. We are impressed by the professionalism displayed by all of your staff throughout the process, in particular:
We will certainly recommend your service to anyone who may need it in the future!"
5 Star Experience
"I had a burst back up flow valve and regardless of who I called, I could not get anyone to fix it. I called Tiger Plumbing and was greeted by a nice girl who gave me an appointment after 4 PM (which was convenient for me). From there on, I thought I would email a picture of my valve to the owner of the company (Ed Van Dam) just to make sure he had the right one. To my surprise he emailed back and said I needed a new one and it could not be repaired. I called him to clarify cost and he quoted me over the phone. The clay of the appointment it was raining and the plumber called me on my cell, and we arranged a time out of the rain. Super service, super owner, super plumber, totally a 5 star experience for me."
Friendly, Knowledgeable and Happy to Answer Questions
"Just some feedback on my appointment today. The service guys were great. Very friendly, knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions...great job. I will definitely call back when I need more services. Thanks a bunch!"
Great Price and I Couldn’t Be Happier
"Hey Ed. Just wanted to thank you and Tiger Plumbing for giving me a hand in the last few days. The job looks great, it was done really quickly, for a great price and I couldn't be happier. I'll know who to call the next time I need some work done. Thanks!"
Very Happy with Results
"Ed: (In regards to Bio-Clean) First application: no change. Shower stall has 2 inches of water and needs 5 minutes to drain when done.
Second application: less water in bottom and takes 1 minute to drain!!!
Third application: no water accumulation and drains very quickly!
Did a fourth application to make sure. Very happy with results.
The bad news: wife has me doing all drains now in the house.
"Hi Ed, Thanks for sending Nick over on Sunday afternoon. He got the leak resolved and the heater back up and running. My wife and I were very pleased with the customer service from all of you at Tiger Plumbing. Well definitely be using you again in the future and will highly recommend you to anyone who asks. You were highly recommended by two people when I asked around, so I am glad to see it was all true!"
Professionals All the Way
''I can only say that I am VERY PLEASED with the way your employees, Luis and Adam, fixed my very nasty (the only way I can describe it) water problem in my basement! It was an unusual problem, but they never gave up and finally figured the best way to tackle it. I'll make this short by just saying that they are two darn good guys to have to fix a problem. How they never started swearing and cussing I'll never know. They were professionals all the way and let me know what was happening whenever I asked. I just can't say how good it felt to deal with people like them instead of some surly miserable *** like we've all run into at some time or other. If I need any more plumbing done again I'll be sure to call you again and so will my friends and family. A big thanks to Luis and Adam again."
"Hello Ed; You will be receiving by postal mail (probably in a few weeks) a notice that a donation has been made to Habitat for Humanity (Waterloo Region) in appreciation for the fine work that Tiger Plumbing did at our home recently. Although we have a very tight budget for improving and maintaining our home, we have been very fortunate with several local companies we've carefully selected to do our major work. They have all gone beyond expectations and given us superb results. Our habit has been to donate a modest amount to Habitat for Humanity in recognition of these companies after a job is done and paid for. The other companies we have recognized this way had done several repairs or improvements for us over the years before we began our donation plan. Yours is the only company where we donated to Habitat after our very first dealing with you, that's how impressed we've been with your staff and their skill in solving our basement plumbing issues. The new walls, floor and ceiling of our laundry—work room will soon be done and I'll send you "after" photos when everything is complete. Thanks again."

Great Customer Service
"Hello. I just wanted to let you know that we hired your plumbing services this morning and I wanted to let you know how happy I was with the customer service that we received during the visit. Luis was fast and friendly. This is now the second time we have hired your services, and we will in the future hire your company as well. Thanks!"
A Very Satisfied Customer
"Hello Ed. Thank you for a job well done. Steve and Dave saved the tree and also another favourite flowering bush. They make a good team and sure put in a long day. After some topsoil and seeding, it will look as if they were not here. The I piping is great on the pressure. Please pass my comments on. Thanks again. A very satisfied customer."
Committed to Get the Job Done
"Good morning Mr. Van Dam. My house was hit by lightning on Saturday and I discovered that my water heater had stopped working on Sunday morning. I looked through the Yellow Pages and made several calls for service and found no one to come to the house until today at the earliest. Luckily for me, I found your ad and I decided to give Tiger a call. I spoke to Travis and he told me he could come over by 6pm and I said that would be fine. He called me at 4:15pm to tell me he was on his way. He and Steve showed up and tried to save my existing water heater to no avail and by that time it was 6:30pm. They proceeded to tell me that they would be back at 8:30 to install a new water heater! They showed up at exactly 8:30pm and had the job done by 9:30 pm!! These 2 guys are just awesome. I am so happy that I decided to give Tiger a call and these 2 gentlemen should be commended on their professionalism and their commitment to get the job done for me and they are really nice guys!"
Carried Out Their Work Efficiently and Professionally
"Ed, I just wanted to drop you a quick note to tell you how pleased we are with the service that your company and your technicians provided at a recent attendance at our home on May 26. Travis and Tom arrived at our home about 10 minutes early and carried out their work efficiently and professionally. One of the best things I like about the service you provide is that you specify a time when your technicians will arrive — not a "window" of time within which they will attend. We retained your company to install gas lines when we first moved into our home almost 6 years ago. We received excellent service then, and we received it again a few days ago. The consistency with which your company provides great service is noted. We're looking forward to having your technicians back once the new kitchen and bath are installed (I'll call a week in advance to book at time). We'll certainly continue to recommend your company to family, friends, and colleagues. Please pass on our thanks to Travis and Tom."
Reliable and Efficient
"Thank you so much for your reliable and efficient work - always appreciate being able to call Tiger Plumbing. Thank you to the fine employees in your company - Tiger is the best!
Quick and Professional Service
"Hi Ed. Really pleased to have had the quick and professional service from Steve and also wanted to let you know that your daughter Leah was very professional and pleasant and a real credit to your company. I'll definitely keep you in mind for future projects. All the best in 2009!"
More than Pleased
"Hi Ed. Andrew and I were just talking about how things went today. He said I should commend Travis to you for doing a thorough job and providing excellent customer service. He was diligent in deciding where the equipment should go and he went the extra mite to turn on the water for the fridge and dishwasher which we appreciate very much. Again we are more than pleased with your company and with your employees and we just wanted to let you know that. I'll have the house open at 8 am Monday tor whenever Travis is available to come by. Let me know about the shower doors whenever you get a chance. No rush. I hope you can drop by sometime when we're settled in. Thanks again and have a great weekend!"
"Hi Ed, Thank you for servicing my request expeditiously. Shawn was very efficient along with some resourcefulness, accomplished the repair satisfactorily. Thanks for a good job."
Worth Every Penny
"Just want to say THANKS a million for the floor heating system you installed in my home. This being my second winter in a brand new home, I always found it TOO cold on the floors no matter how high I turned up the heat. I am a senior and always felt the air much too cool and floors cold. Within a day of having the system installed, that has certainty changed a lot. I no longer feel the air cool, do not have to hike up the thermostat, in fact I never have to touch it and my floors are nice and warm. Do not have to wear extra big socks, big warm slippers etc…and my feet are cozy and warm. Would highly recommend this to anyone, especially seniors or new home owners. It is worth every penny...Thanks again!!!!!
You Live Up to Your Ads
"Dear Tiger Plumbing: I just wanted to thank you for all your help with my plumbing emergency yesterday (when it was "raining" like a monsoon in my bathroom). I was close to hysterical with worry about the plumbing problems and I'm pretty sure you got here to help me out as soon as it was humanly possible, putting me at the top of your list to help. You really do live up to your advertisement in the Yellow Pages which says that "your plumbing emergency is our priority"! You also dealt with my several frantic phone calls to you calmly and professionally. The plumber fixed the problems quickly, efficiently and kindly. I have already been telling people that you were absolutely marvellous to me! Thank you again for everything."
Thank You for a Job Well Done
"Hi Mr. Van Dam. My wife and I would like you to know that we are very happy with the Sanicompact toilet and especially with the very good job Mike has done to install it. It works very well and I think it works better than a conventional gravity toilet. We are glad that Mike suggested it. Thank you for a job well done."
—Martha and John M
"Ed. Thanks for your assistance in getting the dishwasher relocated / reinstalled. Though I was happy the whole time since the first installation, where it is now is perfect. Your guys on each visit were very knowledgeable and friendly, not to mention prompt! I had complete confidence that this installation would be great and I was not disappointed. Excellent work!"
Fast, Thorough and Did and Expert Job
"Hi. We had a couple of guys in this morning to fix a backed-up sewer and install a clean out valve at our home.
We just wanted you to know they did a fantastic job. They were fast, thorough and did an expert job and they came over within an hour of our call. I'm sorry that I don't know their names but they were here at Troy Street in Kitchener this morning. Would you please thank them for us? "
—Olga & Rick T.
A Job Well Done at Fair Price
"Ed: I believe the installation of the Novatek Water Softener and the Kohler toilet was the 5th time I called Tiger Plumbing to do the work. For the 5th time I am pleased with the results. Since the first job your company did, I have come to trust Tiger Plumbing to do the job well and at a fair price. I also trust your suggestions for products. Russ is an excellent employee. He really knows his stuff and his promptness and efficiency are appreciated. Russ has also done work for my mother, where he went beyond the call of duty and for my brother where he quickly diagnosed and fixed a problem. Ed, you have a good company with good employees. Keep up the great work. I will definitely call Tiger Plumbing for my next job."
Courteous and Knowledgeable
"Dear Tiger Plumbing. Thank you for such a positive experience! Our technician Greg appeared on our doorstep right at the designated time (both days) and got straight to work. He was extremely courteous and knowledgeable, taking the time to explain possible problems and solutions, as well as how he was going to go about performing the job. He gave us an estimate that reflected both a high (extensive repairs involving the foundation if needed) as well as a low (if everything went well) and fell right on target with the pricing. Greg was refreshingly proactive. He listened to our observations and investigated the problems and offered possible scenarios and solutions within 10-15 minutes of arriving. As well, he offered to contact a sewage removal service to ascertain everything was well taken care of and all of our problems solved. Also of note, Tiger Plumbing quickly attended to my emergency call and had someone at the door within half an hour! Can't thank you enough and will definitely recommend your services in the future!"
—Shelley & Faz A.
Only the Highest Praise
"Dear Madam/Sir, Mr. Alex came to our house and repaired the bathroom and kitchen faucets. We have only the highest praise for his technical skills and he was fantastic to help us out when needed. We do intend to recommend him whenever possible. Thank you.
—Mr. & Mrs. K.
Gave Me a Good Price
"Ed, A word of thanks. The guys were on time, very professional, and explained everything in detail. I also understand you gave me a good price - thanks."
Would Recommend, from Start to Finish
"Hello, We had our first experience with CANADIAN CERTIFIED PLUMBERS (Note: our name has since changed to Tiger Plumbing) today and wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the experience! From the very friendly and efficient phone people when we scheduled the job, right through to making the payment, everything was first rate. We especially appreciated:
I00% from start to finish, we will recommend you whenever given the chance! One question — Steve described that our leaky upstairs shower drain will likely need to be attacked by putting a hole in the ceiling in the family room below to get at the pipes. Do you have any associations/recommendations on someone who will do the patchwork on the ceiling? We'd want an estimate on that part of the job before deciding to go forward."
—Michael and Susan C.
Really Do Care About Customer Service
"We wanted to express our thanks for your excellent service we received when our hot water heater was leaking on Wednesday. The woman in your office, I think her name is Lisa was great to deal with. She looked after getting back to us, like she said she would. The service fellow Rolland was also great. He came in, identified the problem and said he would look after us that day, we had nothing to worry about. It is a pleasure to deal with a company and people who really do care about customer service. I will recommend your company to anyone who would be in need of your services. Again, great job and thanks!"
—Jackie & Dieter K.
Excellent Customer Service
"Dear Mr. Van Dam, Last evening I called to have a plumber come to my home and check a toilet. Within an hour a young man by the name of Jay arrived. Jay ran into a few problems but remained friendly and pleasant. Jay was very good at explaining what was wrong and how he intended to correct the problem. I was especially pleased that he stayed to complete the job. I wanted you to know that I was impressed with the service I received from your company and particularly Jay. Thank you for your excellent customer service."
