Steve & Emily OWNER – OPERATORS
Steve Connelly began plumbing in 1995 in the apprenticeship program at the Job Corps in Washington D.C.. After completion of the program he returned to the Kansas City area and began working in new construction, plumbing houses. After approximately five years he made the move to service and repair and has thrived in that arena ever since. The new construction start laid a great foundation because Steve can actually plumb a house from start to finish. In the year 2000 he obtained his Master Plumber’s license and then in 2001 became a certified Backflow Inspector.
In 2012, together with help of his wife, Emily, Steve sought out to share his expertise on his own with the formation of Connelly Plumbing Solutions, LLC. He has a passion to help customers understand what is going on with their plumbing system and to give them the pros and cons of every option so that they can make the most educated decision. It seems as if there is a school of thought to either “repair only” or “replace only”. Steve doesn’t see things that way; every situation is unique. You cannot have a cookie cutter approach to a plumbing system. Steve and Emily are happily married with three children (one girl and two boys) that do a great job of keeping them busy!
