In an open letter to his customers, Rob Fogarty explains why he takes pride in his profession:

Dear Customer,

I have worked in the plumbing industry for over 40 years in all phases of plumbing. In that time, there have been many advances in plumbing technology and plumbing design, which allows me to offer you more choices than ever before.

When I started in the industry, the plumber’s motto “Plumber’s protect the health of a nation” was a source of pride among plumbers. Quality workmanship was expected and delivered to the customer. Plumbers were properly trained, highly skilled, and supervised. We were not permitted to ‘practice plumbing’ until we had apprenticed four years under a Master Plumber. I am forever grateful to the Master Plumber who trained and mentored me in the field of plumbing. His knowledge and wisdom live on today, as I continue passing on his knowledge to the next generation.

It saddens me to see what passes for a ‘plumber’ today. Some seem to think that owning a pipe wrench and having a bit of knowledge is all it takes to earn the title of ‘plumber’. There are too many ‘practicing’ plumbing- at the customer’s expense. With so many that are not adequately trained, it is not surprising that Myrtle Beach has so many water restoration and damage companies. We all pay indirectly for the damage they cause through increased insurance premiums.

Another trend makes me long for the ‘good old days’ is customer service, which seems to have disappeared. Often, I find myself asking. ‘Does anyone care anymore?’

Unfortunately, many do not and that is a real shame. Call me old-fashioned, but it matters to me!

At Fogarty Plumbing Company, our customer’s needs are always at the forefront of every job. When you hire Fogarty Plumbing Company, please be assured:

  • We are properly licensed and carry all the necessary business insurance
  • We show up when we say we will
  • We do not hide behind voicemail
  • We do not use high pressure sales, nor scare tactics
  • We do not perform unnecessary repairs to increase sales
  • We always work to the highest standards

It is our desire to make old-fashioned service and quality the norm, not the exception! Meeting our customer’s needs is one of our top priorities. We do not hide behind a catchy name. If you ever feel we are not living up to your expectations or that we need a ‘kick in the britches,’ call and speak with me personally.
