BUSINESS OVERVIEW

This grew increasingly more frustrating because they would get to the job and find out they didn't have the proper tools or parts.

At this time, they coined the phrase: “The Original Plumbing Shop on Wheels.” As time progressed after World War II, Martin E. Farrell, Sr., had five sons who entered the business. They were David, Martin II, Joseph, Frank, and Pete. In 1959, the company president, David, moved the business to its current location at 300 Delaware Avenue in Albany.

Removed 10' of old galvanized pipe (kitchen sink drain)and Installed 10' of new plastic pipe. Job was done in under 2 hours. Sink still didn't drain and some connections leaked. It was necessary to return next day to remove clog. Price was VERY HIGH $513. I fixed the leaks myself.
