About Merrell Plumbing
Plumbing Since 1976
Merrell Plumbing is owned and operated by Mark Merrell.
Mark started out in the plumbing trade when he was quite young. When he
was in high school, he became an apprentice plumber as a way to pay for
his private parochial school education.
After his marriage to his high school sweetheart, he went to work for T.
E. Dunlevey & Son as a licensed plumber. He started Merrell Plumbing in 1974. Years later, when Mr. Dunlevey died,
Mark purchased T. E. Dunlevey & Son Plumbing.
How the Plumbing Trade Has Changed
Mark has seen a lot of changes in the plumbing trade since then. When
he started, nobody was using plastic for pipes and fittings. Today,
everything can be done in plastic. Every year, there are changes in
code requirements dealing with safety-related issues.
Mark and his
staff make it a point to stay on top of the changes to make sure your
plumbing projects pass inspection.
Continuing education is the key. He does this by sending employees
all over the country for continuing education to learn the latest technology
for the proper installation and service of:
- water heaters
- electric control work
- backflow prevention
- and more
The future looks very bright for Merrell Plumbing. M.E.
Merrell continues to grow 10% every year through:
- acquisition (the latest being
Parker Plumbing in Fairborn) and
- the addition of new products and services
for their existing and new customers. Look for heating and cooling
as the next new area of growth.
