Professional and personable.

Wow, starting your day off with a plumber at 9 isn't my ideal morning but these folks were awesome. Plumber, Mark Whitney, was timely, professional, personable, and VERY knowledgeable. He offered so many helpful tips and installed a dishwasher super duper fast, and I was left with an amazingly reasonable bill. Thanks y'all! - Ashley J (5 star review found on Facebook)

Super professional.

Came out - fixed the water issue - super professional, polite, on time. I literally have nothing negative to say! Top notch! - Yana L (5 star review found on Facebook)

Great work.

Jet and I forget the other mans name, sorry, came out and repiped my home, they replaced two shower valves, and a new garbage disposal. each morning Diane called to tell me they were on their way. Great work, nice people, and smart. The new disposal was defective, and Mr. Self and Charles came out in less than one hour, and fixed it. Top drawer company. - Rick P (5 star review found on Facebook)

Recommended and I found they were great!

In preparing my unit for sale this past Saturday, and after pulling the washing machine to install new vinyl flooring the supply lines for the washer broke and we were able to stop water from coming out. My handyman recommended Kempton & Self plumbing and Charles was there in half and hour, took care of the emergency and fixed it. Myself and my wife appreciated a lot!!! Thanks!!!

Emergencies and I called Cory - problem solved.

I had a late night emergency and Cory & crew came to the rescue. They were extremely prompt in response time, and very professional on site. These are definitely the kind of guys you call before anyone else around.  Matt Booker review on Google

Quick response.

I have used Kempton & Self twice in the past two weeks. First was an issue with my office, and the other was at my house. They respond very quickly, work quickly, do a very good job. Joe responded to both of our calls. Very polite and great job cleaning up after his work. The lady at their office was wonderful about letting me know when they would be at my home. I have no reservations recommending them to others. - Joe L (5 star review found on Yelp)

Always treated me fairly with fabulous work!

This company has always treated me and my tenants well. Fair prices, fabulous work, and kind employees. No other plumber in Gainesville is trustworthy, but I trust this company to always have my best interests, and wallet, in mind.  Naomi on Google Review

Believe the Google Reviews, They are GREAT

Believe the 5 stars and the reviews. I called and spoke with Chelsea. She set up a same-day appointment to fix a leak under the kitchen sink. The plumber arrived within the promised time frame, was very professional and finished in a timely manner with no mess. I will definitely be recommending in the future to family and friends. Thanks Kempton & Self!  Christina Bass review on Google.

Solid reputation.

I bought a fixer-upper and decided to get rid of the Poly-B pipes that had sprung 2 leaks for the prior owners.   I went with Kempton & Self mainly because of the name, They are a long-time company in Alachua county and they have a solid reputation.  More than reading the reviews, I asked around and they came highly recommended. Cory did the walk thru because I was at work when this 3-4 day job was being done.  He brought his team of Jet and Joey who did much of the work.  They were all extremely helpful in telling me where the placement of the pipes were and they even made a few minor adjustments to make things even better. I have a ten year warranty and they stand behind the work. I feel that if you have a plumbing need, Cory will go above and beyond to make sure the job is done right.   For example, my house is under much construction, and he offered to come back thru for a final walk-thru once my new bathroom is in just to make certain all is in good working order and that I am satisfied.  Thanks to Cory, Jet, Joey and to Dana and Lisa in the office, I  appreciate all you have done to help me get this house re-plumbed.  I highly recommend Kempton and Self! - Ruth J (5 star review found on Yelp)

18 years & still happy with Kempton & Self


We have used Kempton & Self for the past 18 years, and definitely feel that they deserve a 5 star rating. When I have a plumbing project at my home I want an experienced professional who will discuss my options with me, have the materials he needs on his truck, show up on time, treat my home with respect, and do an excellent job. I want a plumber that I can count on to ease my mind that the job is being done right the first time. Kempton & Self Plumbing has consistently been our "go-to" for everything from simple projects to a sudden leak that occurred in our attic when a hole developed in a water supply line. We have mostly worked with Jacob, who is awesome. He was out last week to install a new dishwasher, sink, and faucet in our kitchen. Everything works perfectly and looks wonderful --- it is the "end result" I hoped for and it's because Jacob is conscientious and does a thorough job. The simplest thing I tell people about Kempton & Self is: "if you want it done right the first time, call them." When it comes to plumbing work at my home, it is one less worry to know that I can always count on Kempton & Self. Kathy Niederloh Review on Google 5 Stars
