Valentine's mission is to offer affordable plumbing services utilizing the technology of today's modern plumbing industry combined with the knowledge and skill of our predecessors. Our specialty is focusing on our clients' needs to develop outstanding solutions at affordable rates and, when possible, utilize today's applications of trenchless technology.
In January 2007, Valentine began working with American Pipe Lining. Commonly referred to as “APL,” this company was the first to bring potable epoxy pipelining technology from Japan to North America’s commercial and residential markets, and to the U.S. government and military, in the1980s. Industry pioneer Steve Mori and his employees are all employed by Valentine today and provide the added benefit of an additional 25 years of experience working with epoxy and epoxy applications. Valentine's technicians have even trained many of our competitors' employees in the proper installation of potable lining installation. No one in our industry understands epoxy lining installation like we do.
Valentine works with the largest small-diameter pipe lining company in North America. With six corporate locations, our corporate resources include 160 field technicians, a traveling ‘specialty’ crew for more complex projects, and over 50 support staff. We have also established the largest, most extensive licensee network in North America and overseas. The size of this network says a lot about Valentine – namely, that more licensees choose Valentine over our competitors because of our well-deserved reputation in the industry for quality products and training, and our unsurpassed 24/7 technical support to our licensees.
Valentine’s best testament to the standards we maintain are reflected in our substantial resume of satisfied clients, our loyal and dedicated staff and technicians who are largely responsible for our success, and our experience and success rate within the industry and among our licensees. Customer satisfaction and the trust of our licensees are two major factors that reflect Valentine’s reputation for integrity.

The Captian of Valentine Plumbing and Sewer
Tom's plumbing career began with water chemistry and swimming pool repair. A lifetime swimmer, Tom competitively swam through college at Northern Illinois University where he received his Bachelor of Science degree. After college, Tom continued operating pools as he pursued the art of coaching swimming. Tom co-founded the local swim school in Sycamore, Illinois (Energym Sports Campus).
In 2002, Tom changed directions as he found he enjoyed making plumbing repairs to pool systems. He worked as an apprentice plumber for 5 plus years before becoming a licensed journeyman in the State of Illinois. He joined Valentine in 2009 where he brought his extensive knowledge of cured-in-place pipe lining to the company.
