From the ancient plumbers who designed the 10-mile aqueduct system through the city of Rome over 2,300 years ago, to the fountains of St. Petersburg, Russia completed over 300 years ago; Plumbing has not only been a necessity, but an art. Plumbing is our canvas, and our work is always defined by quality and integrity.
525 Plumbing Services is a family owned and operated business. Owner and founder, Michael Franklin, has over 27 years of experience. We treat our customers like they are part of the family, so you can trust that we’ll always have your best interest in mind.
Meet our Team:
After attending plumbing school for many years, Michael Franklin worked for a Maryland plumbing company. Years later, he was transferred and moved his family to Atlanta, Georgia where he began working for Roto-Rooter. After some time, he went into management for City Wide Plumbing Company.
Fed up with people settling for working for companies that did not operate on the same moral ground and with the same work ethic, Michael and wife, Mary Franklin decided to take the chance and establish a company that took pride in every job and treated people the way they would want to be treated; 525 Plumbing Services was born.
Before starting 525 Plumbing Mary Franklin worked in Washington D.C. in Bilingual Education. After years of traveling across the country and dealing with government politics, she decided to support her husband, Michael’s dream of establishing his own plumbing company. Mary Franklin is were 525 Plumbing Service’s customer service begins.
Stephanie, daughter of Michael and Mary Franklin, graduated from The University of Georgia with a psychology degree and has now decided to go into the family business. Working with her father in the field had always been a rewarding experience for her because “for this family, plumbing is more than just dealing with people’s plumbing problems. It’s about taking a problem and figuring out the best, most intelligent solution. It’s about being able to look back and see what you were able to accomplish that day.”
Nicholas, son of Michael and Mary Franklin, graduated from The University of Georgia like his sister. He has a degree in International Affairs and is now pursuing a career in Washington D.C. Following family tradition, Nicholas worked alongside his father during his school years. He understands the value of putting your heart and soul in whatever you do and his motto is that if you want to succeed you never settle for mediocre.
