Manning Plumbing: Experts equipped to ‘Whip that Drip’


Plumbing problems can plague homeowners and businesses at any time, and to any degree - whether it is something as minor as a leaky faucet or as catastrophic as a corroded hot water tank that floods your basement. While in most contexts, water is vital and even life-saving, but it can also be your worst enemy. Even an innocuous leaky faucet, if left unattended, can lead to major water damage, to say nothing of what a broken water tank can do to valuable property. Every homeowner needs a reputable, dependable, skilled and experienced plumber to be on their call list, no matter the extent of their plumbing problem. Every homeowner needs a master plumber like Mike Manning of Manning Plumbing.

Mike Manning has been involved with all facets of household plumbing since his high school days. Now, as a licensed and insured Master Plumber, he offers a wide range of plumbing services including the installation, maintenance and repair of appliances such as hot water heaters, water filtration systems, kitchen appliances and all bathroom fixtures. Manning is also skilled in kitchen and bath remodels and in such projects as water heater replacements and fixture "re-fits" at prices as much as 20% less expensive than "big box" retail competitors.

Manning's years of experience have given him a breadth of helpful tips for homeowners. For one, Manning highly recommends that homeowners regularly inspect their sump pumps. To avoid water back-up in the wet spring and summer months ahead, check your sump pump hoses, electrical connections and clearance. He encourages you to replace old, worn-out or cracked washing machine hoses - an easy fix with a quick trip to a hardware store. Watch for unexplained moisture around your house - it may be a sign of leaky pipes and fixtures. Dangerous mold can spread undetected under floor boards and behind walls, severely degrading your home's value - to say nothing of your health. Finally, tend to drainage blockages with a quick flush of an environmentally safe, off-the-shelf product. If you need any help with any of these jobs, you will know who to call.

In addition to advising his customers, Mike provides his "Manning FYI", a free & no obligation basement "walk through" where he will assess any plumbing concerns or worrisome trouble spots. This is a unique and rare service.

As a token of gratitude, Manning Plumbing always offers a 10% discount to all veterans and seniors. Manning is also keenly aware of the expenses incurred when customers take time out of work to meet with a plumber, so he has lowered both his weekend and after hour dispatch fees for his Kent County customers to only $29.00.

Manning Plumbing can be reached at 286-9585 during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 4:30pm. Check out his website at or see his excellent reviews on Angie's List.
