Even though I didn't do my part and tear out the drywall and purchase the shower kit to have it ready, John didn’t bat an eye; we went right off to Lowe’s to get the kit. He tore out the drywall without complaining and proceeded to install the shower base. On the job his tradecraft was the most professional I’ve seen. He covered my floors with high-quality professional mats in place of a drop cloth, he was careful with his tools, and he cleaned the job site at the end of every day. At the end the result was beautiful, a real...if I may....work of art.
The greatest part was hanging out, we even had lunch; he’s great company. He so obviously takes pride in his work; it is written all over the results, but even more in his work craft. It was a pleasure to watch him work and to help out a little. In another life I would have been honored to be his apprentice.
Thanks John, it is a pleasure to know you and thanks for the super job you did on the new shower. - Kyle Barnes
We have used Jon (The British Plumber) for quite a few repairs at our home and been extremely pleased! He is always on time, polite, very reasonable in cost, and does an outstanding job. He is exceptional in his field! He will fix it perfectly the first time, so there's never a need for any additional repair. He's very friendly and works carefully and quietly in your home. Couldn't ask for a nicer, more professional person to do the job. Highly recommended! - Noelle Itharat, Daniel Island
If you need a professional, conscientious, honest plumber, look no further than Jon Barrow, the British Plumber! Jon has replaced our water heater and installed a new kitchen sink in our Daniel Island condo. In both cases Jon completed the jobs on time, was meticulous in his work, and was true to his estimates. And we’ve had no problems after the fact. We wholeheartedly recommend Jon, The British Plumber. Dan & Ellen Rodgers
We can send you a picture of the sink when we get down there later next week if you would like. Thanks!- Dan & Ellen Rodgers

Jon Barrow The British Plumber has done several plumbing issues we had. Who sings while he works, does a fabulous job and leaves your area as clean as it was when he arrived. He takes particular care in all his work which isn't said about many plumbers. I recommend him to anyone that needs a plumber without any hesitation. In my book he is the BEST!!! - Ali E.
I am a big fan of Jon Barrow. I've been a customer since he started on DI. He arrives on time, he is efficient, trustworthy and his prices are competitive. - Harmon Feig
Hiring a plumber can be a risky and costly business. Having used Jon's services over the last several years both at my personal home and rental properties I can honestly say that he has eliminated the risk, uncertainty and much of the costs associated with poor or incomplete work. His professionalism and work are excellent. He will talk you through a job assess the best options quickly and resolve the issue or enhancement with refreshing ease and efficiency. The main thing you can count on is a job very well done. - Alan E.
Jon Barrow is terrific! He always responds quickly and does a great job for all plumbing needs. When our water bill indicated a leak that wasn’t detectable to us, Jon approached the problem with practical and logical steps until it was solved. We recommend Jon Barrow enthusiastically! - Sally and Ellis R
Jon has completed various plumbing jobs on my condo at Daniels Landing. Jon is professional, honest and courteous, does excellent work that needs to be done at the best price possible. Living in New York, I'm happy that Jon takes care of any plumbing issues that may arise at the condo....Thanks. - Fred
Jon has done an excellent job for me on several occasions. He is highly organized,pleasant and very diligent regarding his work. He is also someone you can depend on and has a very professional manner! - John Granozio
Jon Barrow has done work for me on Daniel Island and Mt. Pleasant on several occasions. He has always been prompt, pleasant, and highly competent. I give him my highest recommendation. - Gary Neiman, Mt. Pleasant, SC
I asked Jon to come and do a large plumbing job for me. Another plumber had looked at the problem which involved a second floor leak. The first plumber had determined that a major repair, requiring the floor of a shower and the pan replaced was needed. Jon looked at it and reviewed the situation and very "Sherlock Holmes" investigated and traced the leak to a single fitting that he replaced saving me money, time and mess that could have been an incredible waste. His work, experience and honesty are beyond reproach. - Conrad F.
I can't say enough good things about Jon Barrow the English plumber. I called him during an emergency in January 2016, and even though it was New Year's Day morning he came immediately and was friendly, helpful, and efficient. We ended up having a very complicated problem related to a drain field, but we would not have figured that out if Jon had not persevered until he got to the bottom of things. Once his role was done and the drainfield people took over, he still came by on his own time to make sure that they were doing a good job. He is a wonderful person and a wonderful plumber! - Bill and Devon Hanahan
The British Plumber provides excellent, efficient service and no task is too grim for Jon Barrow to tackle with a smile.
He responded in record time to my plea for help and followed up to ensure that my plumbing problem was resolved. - Elsa Dixon
Thank you, thank you. The faucet had only half the pressure from the day they put it in many years ago. We appreciate the quality of work you do. Never have to worry if it was done right. - Deborah Millett
Thanks so much for taking care of my toilets!! You did a great job. Thank you. - Marjorie Silbiger
No leaks. Brilliant concept and execution. Thanks much.
You were correct. Kohler are sending me a new head for my Simplice faucet, at no cost. Thanks for the tip. - Phil Cotton
He calls himself the British plumber and he is actually British. Some friends recommended him and the insurance covered it. The service was excellent. We almost used him again to change some fixtures. He came and looked at it and didn't charge us to come out but we decided not to do it. - Kathleen McCormick
We have used Jon for a couple of plumbing issues in our home. Most of the lines were running off the wrong water supply (toilet ran on hot water, dishwasher ran on cold, etc). We had him out to fix a leak, and swap the water lines for the toilet last month. Then we had a dishwasher problem that he came to take a look at, he let us know that it needed an appliance repair person, and didn't charge us for the visit. The dishwasher needed to be replaced, but we later found out that the water line for the dishwasher was also incorrect, and Jon came out on short notice over a holiday weekend to fix it. His price is very competitive and we are glad to refer him to other people. - Christina Potosnak
Jon arrived on time, provided same day service, Very competent vs. one Angie's list plumber. He had all the right tools and some I did not know existed. Exhibited the best professionalism I have experienced in the trades in the Charleston area. We purchased the bathroom tub and shower trim kit and the faucet. We called Jon Barrow Plumbing Services in the morning and he responded that afternoon the same day. In addition we purchased the tub adjustable trip lever kit to be installed. He replaced the existing fixtures that were the same brand as the new ones. We called several plumbers for the effort and Jon Barrow Plumbing Services was the most responsive. He examined the tasks and the environment and provided a quote. We accepted the quote and began the effort. It was a pleasure to observe his systematic task performance. he covered the floor with a cover, cleaned up the debris as the job progressed and left the bathroom free of all debris. We plan to use Jon for our next plumbing effort. - Lee Rigby
I've used John Barrow (his trade name is The British Plumber - great line!) several times, starting with fixing a leaking toilet several years ago. This time I had him replace a broken shower valve and replace a broken garbage disposal in separate houses. He accomplished both tasks on time, on budget with a great deal of professionalism.
I cannot say enough about John and his abilities. Out of service provider I've ever used - for any trade, including my own - he has the highest level of execution, detailed planning, and professionalism I've ever seen. He is also the only person I've seen leave a work space cleaner than when he started.
From start to finish, its simply a pleasant experience working with him. He explains the problem to you, explains how he's going to fix it, exactly what it will cost, and even offers to show you his receipts for parts. I cannot recommend him enough. As long as John is in business, I will never use anyone else for plumbing.
I understand he also does large projects and remodeling as well, and hope to engage his services for this in the future. - Joseph Wilbanks
He was absolutely excellent. He did exactly what I wanted him to do, quickly, reasonably priced and I was very happy with him. This is the second time I used him and that was to reinstall what he took out the previous time. He charged me $85 on the first trip to take everything out and $42 to put everything installed, all the equipment and everything else on a toilet and a pedestal itself. Everything was all okay. He is very conscientious a very good guy. - James Bonheimer
Mr Barrow was the nicest person you'll ever meet. Came the very next morning after calling him late the day before. He was very thorough in getting the job completed and checked. He will be my go to plumber for any future plumbing needs. - Joseph Torres
Mr. Barrow is not just a nice guy who is unfailingly polite, he's the best friend your house has ever had. Besides being a top notch plumbing expert, he is working on marketing a "Plumber's Quiver" a set of tools which you can buy from him and use with ease twice a year to save your sink drains from clogging up. I want to be first in line to buy one! And, he is also working on offering a service to have him come to your house once a year to check all the faucets, drains and toilets to see what might need replacing that year. How fantastic is that??!! Why wait till you have guests to have your toilet back up? Get 'em checked before the problem starts. As soon as this service is implemented, I will be the first in line for that one, too. Thank goodness for Mr. Barrow! - P. Fox, Daniel Island
We use Jon for all of our plumbing needs. He is knowledgeable, dependable, friendly and does not price gouge. Jon recently took the time in between his regularly scheduled appointments to repair my kitchen faucet. That is service!!! Please do not hesitate to use Jon for your plumbing needs. You will not be sorry. He is the best!!! - Lisa and David Greenburg, Daniel Island
Jon really knows all about his trade. A clean and efficient worker. He did a marvelous job on our recent bathroom refit that helped us sell the house! Anne Bellingan (UK)
Our new shower and bath fixtures look great- thanks for getting us out of a bind! Therese Jacobs
Jon-Awesome job today!! Thanks for the great service and installation. Hopefully you'll get to go "across the pond" on one of our 787's one day!! I'll enjoy a cold pint and some hot water tonight thanks to you!! Tim Nates Daniel Island
Jon was awesome! I highly recommend, he came same day, and was very professional! Jo Mahoney
Jon, thank you for the great job you did putting in our new hot water heater. It is wonderful having hot water again. I love your slogan about keeping calm and calling the British Plumber. That's what I will do from now on when I need a plumber. Deborah
We came to Charleston last week and it was wonderful that you had repaired all of our plumbing problems at Pier View. Thank you for a job well done! I truly appreciate the extra effort you made to address the plumbing problems in the condo. Linda
Jon Barrow is extremely professional and thorough. He did an awesome job of explaining everything including my options. He explained what each option actually meant for this service visit and any future concerns. I will use Jon for any future work I may need and would referral him to anyone in need of plumbing work. I was in great hands with Jon. Thanks, Kim Fulp
I have used Jon Barrow Plumbing twice now for jobs and I would not hesitate to call him again. The first time I called Jon, he came to my house to help with a bad clog in my kitchen sink, and the other time Jon did a job for me, he completely replumbed the drain for a double sink in my kitchen. Jon’s skill at his profession is obvious by his meticulous attention to detail and he didn't even charge me for looking over his shoulder. If you are looking for an honest craftsman, I don't see how you could do any better than Jon. Dennis Harper
I want you to know how much I appreciated the very thorough job you recently completed in replacing my hot water heater at Daniel’s Landing. It is always a pleasure to work with professionals like you who complete the task on time and on budget. Thank you again for a job well done. Sincerely, Whit
Jon is honest and trustworthy. He is always prompt when following up on what's wrong and the options for getting it fixed! He has done work for me at home and my rental property and I would recommend him to anyone! Ashley B
I just wanted to thank you for such great service in my time of need when my water heater leaked and I had no way of fixing the mess.

We are repeat customers of Jon Barrow Plumbing Services, and couldn’t be more pleased with the quality, prompt service and attention to the smallest detail. Even the price is great! Mark and Noreen, Homeowners, Daniel Island
