"I just wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was dealing with your company.... a certain other [name redacted] company came and opened my furnace and said 'well this thing is done, it’s 15 years old and you need a new one. Would like to schedule an installment date?' He didn’t even look in the furnace when he said this.. I’m recommending you guys to anyone who needs heating services!"

"After finding out that our kitchen faucet was leaking and needed to be replaced, I contacted Walt McCollum Plumbing. I promptly received a response and was provided with details regarding timing and pricing. None of the other plumbers I contacted got back to me, so I figured I'd go with Walt McCollum. I had contacted them on Monday morning and they came out the very next day to replace the faucet. I was thinking of replacing it myself, but I am so glad I didn't. Robert and Tommy were the individuals assigned to replace my faucet. They came on time as scheduled and were very polite, respectful and professional. While they were replacing the faucet they brought to my attention that a coupling had cracked on the hot water line. I had noticed this coupling a little while ago but didn't think much of it considering it wasn't leaking or showing any sign of significant deterioration. However, Robert & Tommy indicated that they felt it would be in my best interest to replace it before putting in the new faucet. They had all the supplies and tools in their truck to replace it onsite. They promptly replaced the coupling as well as the faucet in less than an hour. They made sure everything was in good working order and made sure I was satisfied with their work, which I was. The coupling they reinforced looks much better and definitely stronger than it ever was before. Their pricing for the repair was very reasonable and they also didn't price gouge me for the parts/supplies needed to fix the coupling part. The next day I received a follow up phone call from Mark, just to make sure I was satisfied with their service and didn't have an issues. Overall, I am so thankful I could trust a contractor, especially these days, and also very thankful that they went above and beyond to notify me of an additional concern that could have resulted in a much bigger problem. I would highly recommend Walt McCollum Plumbing for all your plumbing, heating and cooling needs! They are professional, courteous, diligent, responsive and very reasonable in terms of pricing. I feel much more confident in that I can trust a proven plumbing contractor that is local to our area and one that I can count on to do the job right! Don't waste time searching for plumbers should you need one, Walt McCollum is the easy choice. Hopefully I won't need it, but they will be my plumbing contractor for years to come! Thank you for your great service!"
-Matt; Barnegat, NJ
"Thank you for a job well done and neatly as well."

"We have used McCollum for years for all our plumbing needs, and have always found them to be very responsive and professional. But what they did this summer went above and beyond. First, when turning on our hot water heater for the summer, they discovered it was not venting properly- there was a blockage in our chimney. The first chimney sweep who came tried to overcharge us - it would have been cheaper to install a new power vent hot water heater and run a separate vent pipe than to pay to re-line our chimney. Despite it being Fourth of July weekend, Mark arranged to do this work at my request, since we did not want our elderly mother to be without hot water over the holiday. However, I then found a second chimney sweep who was much more reasonable, so I changed my plan, had the chimney re-lined, and told Mark last minute that instead of installing a new hot water heater and vent, I wanted him to hook up my old one to the now clear chimney, which he did quickly without any complaint about my last-minute change of plan. And when doing so, his technician Pat (who is terrific) noticed a couple of flaws in the chimney sweep's work, which he corrected. Bottom line, I cannot speak highly enough about Mark and his crew!"

"Recently I had a flood in my home, my Insurance company and the Restoration Company recommended Walt McCollum Plumbers in Manahawkin. On a Saturday afternoon Pat and Robert came out to write up an estimate. There was some demolition needed since the leak was under my slab. As soon as the access was available they came to the house made the repair. Robert and Tommy came back to make other plumbing repairs for me since I felt so confident with them. Everyone was always cordial from Ceil in the office to Daryl the manager then Mark calling a few days later. Just wanted to let everyone know, when you have an emergency call Walt McCollum, I would again. Thank you!"
-Cathrine; Barnegat, NJ
"I want to thank you for sending Jim and Joe to my house in Waretown. This was a major project with some definite obstacles. They assessed and came up with a solution and a plan. They were clear in telling me what and when the job would be done. They also respected my house and property and were polite and professional. I would welcome them here whenever I have the need. Thank you for the great service and excellent work."
-Kathy; Waretown, NJ
"I just wanted to send a sincere thanks to you and your staff. My tenant in Little Egg Harbor lost heat and was very worried about the pending cold weather. Marian and Lisa were very caring and responsive in handling our need for quick service. One of your employees drove over an hour to get a part that was needed and your tech worked after hours to install the part and get the heat working again. On the following Monday morning, I received a phone call from you just checking to make sure everything was OK. Thank you for your professionalism, great service, and caring employees that really made a difference for two elderly ladies that lost their heat."
-Matt; Little Egg Harbor, NJ
"Awesome awesome awesome! My mom called around 4pm today and Mark called back within 10 min and his crew was out 20 minutes later! The toilets and tub were all backed up. They were able to unclog the stubborn pipe. So appreciative for an awesome team and quick response. Thank you so much for helping my mom today."

"Love using this company! They are on time, professional with their appearance and attitude. You don't have to clean up behind them and they put things back, the way they found it...or better!

"Woke up to no heat on a cold day in mid-February. Called plumbing office and they sent a technician within the home even though I had no appointment.

"Your firm and your good men did one excellent job replacing our air-conditioning units on the roof of our home in Brant Beach Long Beach Island. The workmanship was professional, timely as the circumstances would allow, and accommodating in every way. Your men Nick and Jeremy (I think that’s right) were excellent, hospitable, cooperative and concerned with doing things right. The McCollum group is fully professional in every way from administration to implementation.
It has been a pleasure for us to work with you on this project. We not only will use you again for all of our plumbing needs, but highly recommend you as the opportunities arise.
You advertise pride in your reputation. You should because what you do is excellent work and you should be proud."
-Donald & Eileen; Brant Beach, LBI, NJ
"I used Walt McCollum Plumbing, Heating, Cooling in my other property for plumbing services. I got an estimate from them last month for a work that I’m gonna be needing. I’ve been using them since for my plumbing needs. I’ve been very happy with them. They responded to calls that I’ve made to them. Right after [Hurricane Sandy], they were forced to strictly follow a call log, meaning do service calls as they came in because they had so many. We had to wait and be patient for them to come out. When they did come out, the work they did has been thorough and I haven’t had any complaints. I would recommend them to anybody."
-Jeff; Beach Haven Terrace, LBI, NJ
"Mark McCollum and his workers have worked diligently to install a new toilet, re-route baseboard heating, and to repair my Weil-McLain heater. Following Hurricane Sandy they came as quickly as possible to re-connect my gas in order to give me heat. I can't speak highly enough about Mark and his workers. Mark and his workers have performed many repairs to my heating system over the years and have also helped with a remodel to my bathroom. Mark's communication with me has been exceptional. I can always depend on him to get back to me with updates and he promptly answers my e-mails. The work he does is well done and I plan on continuing to use him in the future. It's not often you get a company who is as responsive as this."

"I just wanted to write a note to thank you and the whole crew at Walt McCollum for taking care of winterizing our house. We feel very fortunate that we suffered minimal damage from the hurricane as compared to so many other homeowners on LBI. We so appreciate the communications that have come to us from you and from other groups who care so much about our 'shore.'
Marian's call this morning was an extra touch... very thoughtful and very kind. It allows us to breathe easier, not to have to worry about the possibility of frozen pipes. Please stay safe and warm and let's all hope for a mild winter and an early spring.
Thank you, thank you, thank you."

"Walt McCollum Plumbing, Heating, Cooling was courteous, fair, efficient and clean. The technicians left no trace of their presence other than a wonderful job at replacing our furnace! We had been using another service for years. The original owner died and the fellows who took over were sarcastic, dishonest and very difficult to work with. Things always went wrong after their presence. Walt McCollum, Inc. in their white trucks are like knights in shining armour! Thank you! My little house is safe!"
