We Proudly Provide Plumbing Service to the Northwest Suburbs.

Besides Elgin, the far Northwest Suburbs of Chicagoland includes many great communities such as Bartlett, Streamwood, Elburn, Geneva, Schaumburg and many more. Each has its own set of unique codes which any licensed plumber of great integrity has to be cognizant of when doing any job in that particular city.

Here at Tom’s Plumbing we recognize the differences in our diverse area and proceed accordingly. To begin with, we always provide city permits for any work where it is required. Our first priority is to make sure that the work we do is up to code and will pass the inspection of any and all municipalities in which we work.

Mike, our lead plumber has lived in the Elgin area all of his life. Tom’s Plumbing has been a part of the area for decades serving Elgin and other suburbs with quality plumbing repair. You have always counted on Tom’s Plumbing and 2021 will be no exception. See our myriad of services at and call (847) 697-6444 anytime day or night.

A Gas Leak is a Really Big Deal.

The danger occurs when gas begins to leak out into your common living area. Why is it dangerous? Because gas is flammable…that is why! If there is any flame, or even a spark near the leak it could cause a destructive and even a deadly fire. There may even be a resulting explosion in your home or business.

Here is what to look (sniff) for –


1.  You notice dead or dying plants.

2.  You may hear a hissing sound near gas pipes.

3.  There is a noticeable smell of rotten eggs.

4.  There may actually be a white fog surrounding your property.

Please take immediate action! You should never, never, let the smell of gas go unattended. Please immediately call the gas leak repair professionals at Tom’s Plumbing. The pros at Tom’s Plumbing will come to your Elgin area home or business and fix the gas leak once and for all. Google and always call (847) 697-6444.

Cool, Clear, Water.

It is one of life’s absolute essentials. Various tests have found that a third of American water supplies contain lead and 75% contain chromium-6...not good! People are unwittingly consuming these dangerous compounds every day. Well water, like public water supplies, is also susceptible to contamination from urban and farm runoff and seepage.

There are several different types of water filters –

1.  Pitcher filters…they only eliminate a small number of contaminants


2.  Faucet filters…make sure they are eliminating the things that you want

3.  Countertop filters…they don’t take up space under your sink

4.  Undersink filters…it makes sense when counter space is in short supply

5.  Reverse osmosis…very effective…allow us to tell you more

Reverse osmosis systems in the Elgin area are installed by the professionals of Tom’s Plumbing. We believe in them and stand by them. Let us give you the details of reverse osmosis water filtration by calling (847) 697-6444 and see everything we do when you take a look at
