A Little About The Business:

Wacker Plumbing was established in 1984 in the basement of a townhouse. It has grown from one man fixing faucets to one of the finest plumbing companies in the Northern Virginia area. Thanks to our loyal and competent staff, we will continue to grow and offer quality service at competitive prices. Our service staff has over 90 years combined plumbing experience. We pride ourselves in being honest and up front with our customers. Unlike some other companies who use “flat rate pricing”, we still charge time and material for most service calls. The flat rate always has to be figured on the worst case scenario. We are only going to charge you for the time we are at your home. There is also never any travel time or trip charge. We feel this is the most fair way to charge our customers.
