Serving Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge & Surrounding Areas Since 1975.
Schweitzer’s first opened its doors in 1975. Since then, we have become known as one of the region’s best plumbing companies for both the quality of our services and our care of the community. We have plumbers who are certified gasfitters, so that we never have to upcharge for outsourcing jobs with gas lines. This allows us to offer quotes securely and with accuracy. If you’re in need of new installs, backflow testing, city connection resolutions, valve fixes, sump pump replacement or repair, or any other plumbing needs, we’re here for you. If you're looking for great deals on water heaters, reverse osmosis drinking systems, water softeners, faucets, fixtures, or parts, we are ready to help. Call or come in with any plumbing needs, big or small; we are the experts you need.
As many in the region already know, Schweitzer’s also has a renovation branch of the company called Schweitzer’s Bath & Kitchen. You’ll often see our renovation vans on the road, or our lawn signs on our clients' lawns. While the renovation jobs are not limited solely to kitchens and bathrooms, it has become a benchmark of quality to have a renovation completed by Schweitzer’s.

You may be running out of hot water if the requirement is greater than what your tank can provide. Tankless hot water heaters solve this problem because they provide endless hot water, but only when you need it. If you have no hot water at all, the heating element or burner may not be operating and will likely require repair. Depending on the age of the water heater, replacement may need to be considered.
If you live in Waterloo Region, you probably have hard water. Most homes and businesses have a water softener to help alleviate the problems on plumbing systems & equipment. Damage from calcium, magnesium and iron in hard water can result in expensive repairs and premature replacement of plumbing systems and fixtures. Soft water is gentle; it allows soaps and cleaners to lather and perform efficiently. Soft water also leaves you with clean and noticeably softer skin and hair.
A leaking toilet flapper or broken toilet fill valve is usually why. The most common cause of expensive water bills is due to a malfunctioning toilet. Be sure to replace toilet parts with the correct components to ensure proper operation.
Removes sodium from our water. Sodium is introduced through the water softening process. It also removes many other harmful contaminants such as lead, arsenic, chlorine, and nitrates commonly found in municipal water supplies. Microplastics, now found in our tap water and bottled water can also be effectively removed through a reverse osmosis drinking water system.
If you live in a home with a high ground water table, it might be good to have your sump pump checked annually, before spring rains and snow water run-off cause a flood. Alarms and battery backup systems are always a sound investment, particularly inside homes with finished basements.
Please contact us for any warranty related inquires. If you have any supporting product paperwork, receipts or can provide photographs, our service department will assist you with warranty support.
Many people still do not know how prevalent an issue this is and will continue to become. With this recent push to increase awareness surrounding microplastics, there has also been a surge in the search for a solution. One of the best solutions for individual residences at the moment rests on residential plumbing. Many plumbers are considering it a heavy burden to spread awareness about microplastics and the way reverse osmosis drinking systems can cycle-filter them out of drinking water, drastically decreasing the amount consumed.
