The Gentlemen Plumbers is excited to announce a unique partnership with the Edmonton Rush lacrosse team. Through this partnership we are happy to be able to support Little Warriors, a national charity based in Edmonton that is committed to the awareness, prevention and treatment of child sexual abuse.

Throughout the 2015 season, for every successful Edmonton Rush home game penalty “kill”, The Gentlemen Plumbers will donate $100 to Little Warriors.

We take our commitment to the community seriously, and we’re so pleased to be able to support such a worthwhile cause in partnership with one of our city’s most beloved sports teams.

Plumber Gives Away Hot Water Tank

Dec 08, 2014:

Every year The Gentlemen Plumbers give away free plumbing to special families in need throughout the month of December.

This year was kicked off when technician Mike Fairbanks was out on call diagnosing a problem with a family's hot water tank. After letting the family know that they would need a new water tank, he quickly realized that this was not an option for them financially.

Mike, not wanting to leave the family without water; called his manager and asked if the company would supply a water tank and in turn, he would volunteer his time to install it.

The company agreed and we’re happy to report that hot water is now flowing once again!

Throughout the month of December, The Gentlemen Plumbers will continue to give to those who are in genuine need of help both by nomination through friends and family, as well as random acts from technicians in the field.

Growing Moustache's For Charity

Nov 01, 2014:

The Movember community has raised $574 million to date and funded over 800 programs in 21 countries. This work is saving and improving the lives of men affected by prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health issues.

The Movember Foundation challenges men to grow moustaches during Movember (formerly known as November), to spark conversation and raise vital funds for its men’s health programs. To date, 4 million moustaches have been grown worldwide, but we won't stop growing as long as serious men’s health issues exist.

The Gentlemen Plumbers proudly support the Movember movement. Check back every Friday to watch the transformations of our moustache growing technicians!

Company Helps Flood Victims

Jun 26, 2013:

One family-owned business has stepped up to help Calgary flood victims get back on their feet – without charging a dime.

Calgary plumbing company Action Auger, also known as “The Gentleman Plumbers” has been pumping out water from the basements of flood victims for free.

Brham Trim, Action Auger founder and owner, was inspired to offer the free service after seeing the devastation in Sunnyside, one of the places most affected by the Calgary flood.
