I’m John Salmon and I have been running Salmon Plumbing for over 20 years now.

I started Salmon Plumbing to offer people the best option in hot water. Government incentives and requirements change frequently and I wanted to make sure my customers made the right choice.

From those early days, the Salmon Plumbing team has expanded and we now offer complete plumbing solutions for residential and commercial buildings. From simple tasks like fixing a leaking tap to more complex ones like installing rainwater systems and trade waste services – we do them all.

We are located in Northgate and service the Brisbane metropolitan area.

What makes us different to others in the plumbing industry?

    • We are open 24/7: If there is one thing we have learned, being in plumbing for over 20 years, is that plumbing emergencies don’t always happen 9 to 5. So we are available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
    • We have a highly skilled team: Our team is our biggest asset. More than half have done their apprenticeship with us and are now fully licenced plumbers. We keep our skills up-to-date. All our licenced tradesmen undergo continual professional development including technical skills upgrades, customer service and product training.
    • You will always speak to a team member: When you call us, a member of our dedicated scheduling team will take your details and help with your enquiry. You will never get an answering machine or a call centre operator.
    • We have efficient systems: We execute our jobs on time and on budget. To ensure that this happens every time, we have invested in good monitoring systems. Besides computerised scheduling, all our vehicles are tracked by satellite navigation. This enables us to respond to your job, emergency or otherwise, quickly and efficiently anywhere in the metropolitan Brisbane area.
    • We clean up before we leave: We lay down mats to protect your floor and other surfaces. Each tradesman is equipped with a cleaning kit and vacuum cleaner. All we leave behind is a job well done.
    • We offer a 61/2-year warranty: We are QBSA, PIC licenced and provide a 61/2- year warranty on our workmanship.

Over the last 20 years, Salmon plumbing has built an excellent reputation. We are here to stay for another 20.

    Hello, I’m John Salmon and I started Salmon plumbing 25 years ago. The reason I did this was because I have a passion for the plumbing and building industry and I understand the difference that good quality building services make to people’s daily lives.

    Quality plumbing delivers long-term benefits to individuals, the community andthe environment by ensuring high quality safe drinking water, effective sanitary systems and reduced energy consumption which are the foundations of individual and community health.

    Our clients are our number 1 priority and the reason I, and my team come to work everyday. We aim to deliver first class service and top quality workmanship every time. With Salmon plumbing, we say what we mean and we mean what we say.

    I am committed to training and development within the industry and that is why I have been on the Board of Master Plumbers for the last 8 years. The role of the Board is to set the standards for the industry statewide.

    We work hard to look after you, our clients the best we can and we welcome your feedback. We take seriously the trust that you place in us to work in your homes and business’s.

    I’m Greg Stafford and I’ve been married to my lovely wife, Tahnee, since 2007. We have two very active little men, our sons Jack (8) and Matthew (6).

    I’ve worked with Salmon Plumbing for 13 years now, first as an apprentice, later as a tradesman and now as the Operations Manager.

    Before I began working with Salmon Plumbing, I studied at university and it was during that time that I was first introduced to the plumbing industry. While my fellow students had part-time jobs in restaurants and pubs, I was working for a company installing vacuum sewerage systems in new commercial estates. It was a relatively new concept in Brisbane at the time and I enjoyed learning about the emerging technology. That work also fuelled my enthusiasm to become a plumber; and, when I joined Salmon Plumbing, that goal became a reality.

    My qualifications include:

    • Bachelor of Business
    • Diploma in Project Management
    • Cert 4 in TAE
    • Plumbers and Drainers Licence
    • Backflow Endorsement
    • TMV Endorsement
    • Solar and Heat Pump Endorsement
    • Type “A” Gas Fitters Licence
    • Restricted Electrical Licence

    I’m very passionate about the plumbing industry and insist on working to the highest standard. It gives me a great sense of pride to know that I work for a well-respected, established company that shares my work ethic.
