The importance of the plumbing profession is greatly misunderstood. In history, the Romans were credited with developing the first plumbing systems; however, it would be several more hundred years before scientists discovered the threat of the bacteria and disease that existed in the unfiltered water of the Roman public baths. The Importance of Sanitation to Plumbers American plumbers adopted the slogan, “The Plumber Protects the Health of the Nation” in the early 20th Century, as a reminder to the public of the importance of sanitation that the plumbing profession provides. The importance outweighs the greatest medical milestones and breakthroughs in...

Our Business is About Helping Others

May 1, 2018

When we started our business in 1985, there was no way of knowing the effect that our small team could have. We began with a sewer and drain cleaning team of no more than 3 people and a single service truck and a septic tank pumping pump truck. We have grown tremendously over 33 years. Around 2012 we began working tirelessly with a business coach to guide us through every aspect of our business. Sure, our business size has changed. We now have 16 employees, 4 service trucks and 2 pumping construction crews. But our business growth goes beyond us,...

Ring Found In Drain Pipe

Another Wedding Ring Rescued

August 25, 2016

Last week TVPD received another frantic call from a Lady in Vale, Oregon, who had accidentally dropped her very expensive diamond ring down her sink drain.  They had taken the P-trap off under the sink, hoping to find it stuck in there, but the P-trap was empty. When she called TVPD, she was very upset.  Dave told her to not run any more water and our guys would be out soon.  When our Techs arrived, they ran a camera down the 2″ drain line from the clean out and found the ring was still in the small drain and had...
