About Bob Larson Plumbing in Tacoma

Building Successful Relationships One Plumbing Project at a Time

These are interesting times we live in; times with their own set of challenges and opportunities. The world grows smaller and everything seems to move at a faster pace. We have more choices and decisions to make, and increasingly, more pressure and less time to make them. We want the best for our hard-earned dollar and want to trust the people we hire to provide us with products and services.

But how do we know whom to trust? Especially when it comes to plumbing? Does any of this sound familiar? At Bob Larson Plumbing, we understand the difficulties that go into your decision-making process when choosing a plumber. So, we make it our top priority to help you make a wise decision.

Reasons for choosing our Tacoma plumbers include:

  • We are Localloop Certified with an 86% Customer Satisfaction Rating based on 24 independently verified reviews. This designation is meaningful because our customers “during anonymously conducted surveys” stated we had exceeded their expectations and provided them real value.
  • We have a high rating on the Consumers’ Checkbook, an A+ rating by Angie’s List, and excellent standing with the Better Business Bureau.
  • We offer same-day and 24/7 emergency service—because we know you want every job done sooner than later.
  • We can be at your home or business within 30 to 60 minutes of when you call, depending on where you’re located.
  • Our trucks are like rolling warehouses, which means we can complete most jobs in just one trip for even greater convenience.

Our owner and founder, Bob Larson, has served as President of the Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Contractors Association and teaches continuing education courses for other locally licensed plumbers.

Our Mission

Bob Larson Plumbing defines itself with excellence and impeccable character. We strive to maintain a respected plumbing business committed to professionalism and ethical conduct and to be known for honesty, reliability, and competence in our community.

For us, honesty is about simply being straight with people. Some plumbing jobs are so easy and straight-forward, it’s hardly worth the trip. Yet, what is the value of a quick-fix resulting in an ecstatic customer? On the other hand, some tasks have the potential of becoming a money pit. Wouldn’t you want to know the truth before you get in too deep?

Reliability is about more than simply showing up on time. It’s also about following through and doing what we say we’ll do and not doing what we said we wouldn’t.

Competence is about having the knowledge and skills to do the job. It’s also about using good judgment in both the planning and execution of an assignment. We have over 20 years of experience in the field and would be more than happy to supply customer and business references. We are proud of our work for our clients and extremely pleased when we are recognized for our accomplishments.

We Bring You the Best

Whether you are calling because of a clogged drain, a running toilet, or a more complex plumbing issue, our Tacoma plumbers aim to satisfy. When we say we’ll come at a certain time, we’re there and not a minute later. We also let you know the full price of the service upfront and give you a written guarantee of our workmanship, so you can have confidence in us. All our plumbers are licensed and insured.

  • They are my hero's!!

    “Thank you for your amazing work on our failed water main! Wayne and John were troopers... it's bloody cold out and they got us all outfitted not only with a brand new main, but they even installed a new shut off valve in our front hall closet. They are my hero's!! Despite the cold and having to hand dig 4 feet of our yard which is all glacial till and a creek bed (ie: full of rocks!) - they were so nice and courteous, not to mention cheerful!! Can't thank them enough!”

  • Very impressed with his professionalism and attention to great customer service.

    “Micah, the service technician/plumber, just left our home and we are very impressed with his professionalism and attention to great customer service. Our job was far from inexpensive, but he and his partner, John, had been here less than a week ago to service our tankless water heater that was 12 years old and suddenly quit giving us hot water. He had been here prior to that to diagnose the problem. To keep the story short, they spent over 2 hours here repairing the old heater and all seemed well...until the next night. Suddenly, hot water access was intermittent. This was on a Friday night, so my husband called on Saturday. Micah promptly returned his call and, after some discussion, we decided to purchase a new tankless water heater. We figured out a workaround to get by until the new one came in (2 days) and they just installed it today. While we were hoping to not have to replace the old heater, 12 years is quite a lot of time, so it wasn't a terrible shock. Even though Micah had spent quite a lot of time repairing the other one, he credited that whole invoice towards the purchase and install of our new heater, which turned what had been an unpleasant situation into a very pleasant experience. Thank you, Bob Larson Plumbing!”

  • Prompt, friendly, clean, professional, knowledgeable service.

    “I had Bob Larson Plumbing come out to our house for the first time yesterday and it was Bob himself. He texted me prior to being on his way for his arrival time, asking if I had any questions and then gave me a quick call 15 min before to let me know when he would be there--so helpful! Also, when I had called two days ago, she was able to get me scheduled for the next morning, but it didn't work for my schedule and since our plumbing issue wasn't an immediate threat I opted to do it two days later, but the idea that I can get my plumbing issues looked at in a timely manner was important to me. I was referred to Bob Larson Plumbing by another plumbing company that does more outside/excavation work. As far as the actual appointment went: We had an issue with our 80-gallon hot water heater not providing enough hot water. We have had two plumbers that were highly rated come and look at our water tank and neither had found the rusting or the broken valve on the expansion tank! He went about checking possible issues and found some other issues (a water expansion tank with a broken valve and a leaky rusted pipe) and charged according to a pre-prescribed charge rate. Since I know next to nothing about plumbing, this made me feel more comfortable that he wasn't just making up a price but that it was a standard rate for everyone. He was polite, friendly, clean, and possibly even Christian since he recognized my daughters Bible cards she was playing with. He kindly put the shoe covers on while in the house without being asked (I'm a bit of a germ freak so that put me at ease not having to clean up after out-side shoes even though we don't have carpet). We are looking at replacing a shower faucet to see if the valve is causing the issue and if not we will looking into possibly a tankless water heater. Bob was very detailed in my water tank options and how each works and the things we would have to do for each path, including pricing. I wrote them down to council with my husband about. I had read in other reviews about how some plumbers were disrespectful or dismissive of women and I had rather geared myself up for such a case but was absolutely at ease with Bob and his professionalism and kindness. We are doing some remodeling in the near future and hope to be able to work with him again. He was able to simply charge my credit card on his phone with one of those swipe attachments and I signed digitally and voila! Painless. After he left, I promptly received an email with the bill from his secretary. Prompt, friendly, clean, professional, knowledgeable service. It really doesn't get any better than that. Thanks again, Bob Larson Plumbing!”
