About Us



Thompson Plumbing & Heating was founded by my father, Franklin J. Thompson in 1954. We are a small business serving exclusively the Fairmount, Brewerytown and Spring Garden sections of the City of Philadelphia and its neighboring communities (CENTER CITY).

Along with serving our community's plumbing and heating needs, we also support the community that we serve. We are a major supporter of the Fairmount Sports Association (4 teams), St. Francis Xavier School CYO and sponsor the Francisville Playground Basketball Association. We also support many other Neighborhood Projects and Events in the Fairmount section of the city.

Thompson Plumbing & Heating is a full service, certified, licensed and insured shop with the qualifications and expertise to handle all your plumbing and heating needs and desires. We believe in doing your work right the first time and taking the plumbing or heating worries out of your life. We believe that safety is the top priority while we are working in your home. We are concerned with providing you a safe operating plumbing and heating system when we leave. We are certified, licensed, and insured to protect you and your loved ones. We have the many years of experience to detect problems quickly, and correct them in a timely manner.

It is unfortunate that so many shortcuts are being taken by unqualified and uninsured "handymen" when installing or maintaining a plumbing or heating systems today. This only causes you, the homemaker, undue stress and additional unnecessary expenses when the work is done wrong. It can also endanger your life and the life of a family member. Your home is probably your most valued possession and it should not be damaged or devalued by unqualified, unlicensed contractors.

As a licensed and trained registered master plumber, I can recognize small problems in your home before the problems become big ones. As a plumbing instructor for more than 18 years at Dobbins Vocational School, it was my task to teach troubleshooting, provide good workmanship standards and to be a good example for my students to follow, along with teaching them an honorable trade. You will see that same workmanship performed for you, because you deserve no less.

For over 60 years (1954) our motto has been “Quality and Reliability”. We feel that as a homeowner you are entitled to have quality workmanship with the best available materials. We feel that you are entitled to have someone who is reliable and trustworthy to work in your home and have respect for your home when it is entrusted to us.

When plumbing and heating is installed properly it enhances the value of your home. Most people can only afford to make major repairs or replacements once in a lifetime. It is important to me to do the same quality work in your home that I would do in my own home.

We feel that your time is valuable, just as our time is valuable. This is why we are on your job the day we agree to be there. The good Lord only gives us so much time on this earth to get the job done. Why waste it doing the same job twice? As an ordained Deacon in the Catholic Church, I have dedicated my life to serve others. We are all on this earth to work for the greater glory of God with the talents He has given to each of us. My talent happens to be as a licensed and insured master plumbing professional. My call from God is to be a good servant deacon for His people.
