Homebuyers should invest in specialized plumbing inspection before purchasing home
Jolly Plumbing gives tips to homebuyers to protect themselves from hidden, costly repairs
(JULY 21, 2015 – KELLER) – Many homebuyers pay for a general home inspection to assess the condition of the home before they sign the loan papers; however what they don’t realize is that these inspections don’t usually catch plumbing problems beyond the fixtures. In order to save themselves from expensive and time consuming plumbing repairs that maybe lurking out of sight, homebuyers should hire a licensed plumber to inspect the plumbing system.
In 2014, Jolly Plumbing inspected 120 homes and 25 percent of those had underlying issues with their sewer. The average cost of repair was $3,500. Houses that needed a complete repipe, had cost that ranged from $20,000 to $26,000 (this does not include the cost of homeowners having to hire other contractors to replace the flooring, carpet and drywall).
“We have had several customers who did not know the condition of their plumbing system when they purchased the home, only to have problems a few months down the road,” said Chester Jolly, Jolly Plumbing Owner and Master Plumber. “General inspectors usually just do a visual inspection of the plumbing fixtures, whereas a licensed plumber can look deeper into the pipes and the system. Nothing is worse than the excitement of a new home being ruined by costly plumbing repairs or having your new home torn apart to fix it. We perform full plumbing inspections that include a camera sewer line inspection for $385. If a customer has us do it before they buy the house with problems, it could save them thousands of dollars.”
A licensed plumber should inspect the following:
The main sewer line by running a camera through it to detect leaks, deterioration, rusts, and potential reoccurring clogs such as tree roots. They can also make sure that all the pipes were laid correctly and connect correctly.
The age of the water heater and if it needs to be replaced. When inspecting the hot water heater, they should look for mineral deposits, corrosion of t he tank or any parts, and other warning signs that the tank needs to be replaced.
Leaking toilets can be determined by warping or discoloration around the toilet base, and a soft or moving floor around the base.
Water pressure. A general home inspector will turn on all the faucets and visually check the pressure. A licensed plumber can put a gauge on the water pressure to check it. If it is too high, you could come home to a flooded house.

I cant say enough about them. We called this morning because our water heater went out. They came the same day, replaced it (with a bigger tank even), and even cleaned up afterwards better than I had it!! Hunter and Ryan were professional and quick without compromising quality! Will recommend them and use them again! Thank you!!
They have done a few big jobs for me and are always honest, upfront, and quick.

- Lucy Woodward. 8/14/2018
Two reasons to call Jolly.
1. Professionals. Chester knows what he is talking about, breaks it down an issue as simple or deep as you want to go, does what he says, and is through and clean.
2. My wife liked working with them. I don't always get to handle these issues myself so it is important that we have someone my wife doesn't feel is going to take advantage of her or pose a physical threat with her and the kids at home. Chester was again a professional, courtious, appreciable with questions.
We are already planning to have to come back out to fix another issue next week.
Service performed: Replaced water heater

As a General Contractor I am very particular of the people I work with, we expect nothing less than exceptional workmanship, customer service and reliability. Jolly Plumbing delivers on each of these categories in a very competitive industry. Their team are second to none. Use them once and you will have your plumber for life.
- Blake Scott. 7/21/2018
Spending money on 2 new hot water heaters was not my ideal situation however it had to be done and Jolly Plumbing was great! Chester answered all of my questions and went over my options. We gathered 3 bids for the replacement and ultimately chose Jolly due to competitive pricing and great front-end customer service. Chester stayed in communication with me throughout the entire process giving me updates on his timeline and progress. I highly recommend Chester and Jolly Plumbing and I will use them again for any other plumbing needs.
- Alan Bass. 7/17/2018
Chester Jolly is customer service personified. I was having a "challenge " and he came and made everything right. Great work and made sure that I was satisfied.
- Russell Livingston. 6/14/2018
We needed several plumbing jobs done at our house. We called and asked Jolly plumbing for an estimate. Chester Jolly came out and gave me a fair estimate of the work to be completed, and said he could get started immediately. He had another worker arrive and they finished a complete toilet repair, new sink drain install, new kitchen faucet install, and 2 outside faucet installs in about 2 1/2 hours. We are very happy with the work they did. They are very tidy and clean up after their work. I wouldn’t hesitate to call Jolly Plumbing again for any plumbing need! They deserve 5 stars!
- Cherie Hart. 6/14/2018
I just want to give Jolly plumbing a hands up on the great job they did for us at our rental house!! We had clients coming in to stay for a week and we had a emergency water leak going on. It was to late to cancel the clients but Chester came and met me at the residence property and rescued us from a disaster! He was on time and explained everything to me and got us situated! I highly recommend Jolly’s plumbing to anyone!! Thanks again Chester for coming through for us!!

They are very responsive, professional, knowledgable and do a fantastic job!
I would not hesitate to heartily recommend them for your plumbing needs!
- Marianne McAllister. 4/24/2018

- Suhail Sharif. 3/2/2018
- Michelle Guerra. 2/19/2018
I cannot say enough about Jolly Plumbing. Chester, Hunter, Erin and the rest of the staff are top notch. After having a two consecutive plumbers no show me when a major plumbing back up was attempting to destroy my downstairs, Chester Jolly came to the rescue. I spoke with him at 6:15 on Monday evening (Feb. 19) and by 6:40 he was at my home and began work. He brought in Hunter later to help him in the rain, as well. They diagnosed the problem under my house and in our downstairs restroom. While it has not been the easiest thing to have fixed, thanks to weather - it has rained everyday since this happened - Jolly Plumbing has been amazing. I will never use another plumber while living in this area. They have a 100%% customer for life and referrer, and I appreciate what they've done to get our home back in order after this plumbing disaster. Thank you!
- Will Warren. 2/1/2018
Chester did a great job on my rental property, he came on a relatively short notice, didn't try to oversell any service. He did a nice work and everyone there is very professional. I would hire him anytime for my plumbing needs, thanks Chester
- Shriniwas Joshi. 1/6/2018

- Orel Cottrell. 0/13/2018
We had an awful odor in our house for months, no one could find the source. Jolly Plumbing came out, found it and had it fixed within a day. We were very impressed at how well equipped the vans are with the most up to date technology, very sophisticated equipment. The owner and employees are professional and very knowledgeable. In future, we know who to call first...Jolly Plumbing. Thank you guys!
- Lynda Smith. 11/23/2017
Jolly Plumbing services my medical practice, my farm as well as my home. At all times they have been most professional, prompt, and conversant with respect to my plumbing issues. The prices are more than fair for the superior quality of the work that they deliver. The staff are comprised of honest, trustworthy individuals with pride in the product of their labors. I trust these men to keep my world running without problems when it comes to plumbing issues.
- E. Jo Bailey. 11/22/2017
Our water heater pilot light went out and would not light. It was late in the day, but they called me back and came out. Our water heater is older. They checked it out, cleaned it and, without trying to up sale me a new heater, got it lit and working. He explained everything he did. Very nice and professional!
- Pam MacMaster. 11/21/2017
Middle of the night and our upstairs hot water heater leaking woke us up from a dead sleep! Jolly Plumbing to the rescue! I called and scheduled a service visit with Jolly Plumbing early morning and by the end of the day Chester Jolly and his son made it a point to check on my problem before they called it a day. Outstanding customer service at a fair cost is most important and Jolly Plumbing delivers! Courteous, friendly, and honest. You can bet that I will call Jolly Plumbing for any future plumbing needs and I would definitely recommend Jolly Plumbing to family & friends.
Well done Jolly Plumbing.
- Jax Garner. 11/19/2017
Jolly Plumbing became my plumbing company of choice tonight. We had a leak in a line from our water heater and needed help. They finished the job they were on and came right out to our location. They were genuinely concerned and made a point to fix our problem tonight. They are very professional, courteous, and friendly. Thank You Jolly Plumbing!
- Michael Chance. 11/14/2017

Thank you Chester!!
- Tonya Sims. 11/13/2017

- Jeff Spock. 10/26/2017
I highly recommend Jolly Plumbing! After a long day we realized our hot water heater wasn't working at 8pm. We called Jolly Plumbing and they had someone to our house in an hour. They worked quickly and fixed the water heater. Chester made sure to find a cost effective solution so we didn't have to pay too much. Thank you so much Jolly Plumbing!
- Judy Payne. 10/9/2017

- Michael Mleczko. 7/26/2017
We ran out of hot water Monday evening. After dealing with our home warranty company and getting a bad deal all around (no hot water for 3 days), I found Jolly plumbing. BEST. FIND. EVER! Friendly, clean, and honest. I was promised a hot shower and, by golly, I got my hot shower! My expectations were met and exceeded. From here on out, Jolly plumbing will be my first call for all our plumbing needs.

- Metro Campos. 6/10/2017
A couple years ago Jolly Plumbing came out to my house to re-install my new toilet because the last plumber did a terrible job. I met Chester through my son who had recommended him to me, and through his good workmanship and price I recommend him to others in the area and have! Thanks again and will use them again.
- William Bethel. 6/10/2017

- Jarrod Byrd. 6/5/2017
I can't thank this company enough for their quick response after calling with an emergency plumbing issue. My shower was backed up and my guest toilet was gurgling and I had a party in 2 hours. JOLLY PLUMBING came out in 20 minutes and unclogged my pipes. Apparently, my daughter flushed down wads of baby wipes down the toilet which were getting caught in roots. NO said they will have to come back to remove the roots but my pipes are good for now. Thanks guys!
- Seth Colten. 6/5/2017
We had an issue with our pipes. Come to find out we a foundation leak. Chester came out, assessed the damages, processed all the insurance paperwork for us, and fixed our problem. He retiled the area where he needed access and you can't even tell he was there. Would post a photo if I could. Highly recommend his business and would use again. Thanks Jolly Plumbing!

- Bridget Armistead. 6/4/2017
I have used Jolly plumbing several times at different properties. They do fantastic work. Honest, fair, timely, quality workmanship, personable, price conscious. My latest interaction was at my home. One of my water heaters went out. They ordered all the parts, had them delivered, and came over on the weekend to perform the replacement. They hauled off the old water heater, replaced some parts on the other water heater that weren't up to today's code, and overall made things safer and more efficient. Several of the items were free of charge. I'm more than satisfied with them. The owner is a great guy too. Thanks Jolly!
- Andrew Fuller. 6/2/2017

I've used Jolly Plumbing twice. Very honest, quick, and saved me a ton of money. I trusted him so much I gave him the garage code and he called me as soon as he was done.
- zmeatc . 5/21/2017
Chester did an excellent job fixing our plumbing issue, will be calling him again for future needs!
- Peyton Anne Frank. 5/6/2017
Jolly Plumbing did an exceptional job at my house. I had two exterior hose bibs that bust in the freeze last winter causing water to come out of the weep holes in the brick of the wall.
Jolly showed up quickly; was able to complete the work extremely quick and at a reasonable price.
Jolly left the scene as if nothing happened. Usually work crews will destroy grass; make a mess on the walls; leave stuff in the yard. Not Jolly- it was as if nobody had been there.
I'm exceptionally happy with the work they did. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
- Paul Puckett. 3/21/2017
Jolly Plumbing did an excellent job fixing our plumbing issue. Chester and Hunter are top notch and really go above and beyond.

- Don Kawahigashi. 1/24/2017
I had a great experience with Jolly Plumbing. They installed/set a bathroom tub for us. They were on time very knowledgeable and gave me a bid which I accepted. And they cleaned up afterwards which I really appreciated. I would highly recommend and I already have😊
- Rhonda Muller. 1/24/2017
They managed to squeeze me in the same day that I called, were courteous, and had my sewer cleared very quickly once they arrived. I had spent all night trying to fix it myself; I think I'll call Jolly Plumbing right away the next time I have a problem.
- Edward Spyker. 0/25/2017
Chester and his company did phenomenal work getting our house back in order after a serious leak. He went above and beyond in the quality of his work. Highly recommend.

- Martin S. 0/11/2017
Professional and quality service. Hunter and Ryan were efficient with their time and able to quickly locate and fix our leak. They identified the problem and explained what options were available to remedy the issue. We were very satisfied with their work!
- Matthew Engelman. 0/7/2017
Great plumbers- Hunter and Ryan!! Highly recommend. Fixed me very timely and good pricing.
- Jeff Ramsey. 0/7/2017
My service person was Johnny. I called four companies for an estimate. One large company, and three more local. Jolly beat the price of the next higher company by 48 percent and literally 417 percent less than the large company. The large company had good reviews but said that they had to do work I wasn't asking for in order to do the things I required. For instance, to change the fixtures on my tub they have to set and frame the tub. My fear was that in choosing Jolly, I would pay the price in the quality of service but my fears couldn't have been more wrong. Johnny knew I was trying to save money by doing as much of my bathroom remodel as I felt comfortable doing on my own. I preferred that a professional, however, update my fixtures, move some plumbing, and set the shower pan. He completed all of this on time and efficiently as well as provide me with very very valuable advice on the work I already planned to do myself. I absolutely couldn't be happier with the quality work and service I received and have told all my friends that I have a plumbing company for them should they ever need it!!! This company goes over and above and is worth more than they charge. Hope I didn't just raise everyone's prices but if you cant tell, I am very pleased.
- Quilla Barnett. 0/4/2017
Excellent service and quality - would give them six stars if it was an option. Used their services three times now and have been fully satisfied every single time. Honest, polite, and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Jolly Plumbing.
- Willy. . 0/4/2017
Chester is perfectly friendly and professional, and was able to work in an appointment for me the same day I called. I'm really thankful for it, as every other service I contacted would have had me wait at least a few days. He also went beyond what I expected to make sure everything was working as well as it could after he fixed the problem. I'll definitely be giving him a call first if and when I need a plumbing service in the future.
- Kelly Murphy. 0/3/2017
Oh my gosh. You won't find a better plumber than these guys. We had an emergency and they got here as quickly as possible and did an incredible job and at a great price! Chester and Jessica are a great duo.
- Jerry Gooch. 11/31/2016
I would highly recommend Jolly Plumbing. 5 Star Service. If you need a plumber, you need to contact Chester and his team. You won't be disappointed.
- Jaclyn Anderson. 10/28/2016
I can't say enough good things about my experience with this company! I them replace a water heater a couple of years ago, and when the water pan was not draining correctly, they came and fixed it without charge.
Today, my toilet was leaking from the base, and both it and my tub were backing up. Johnnie came out and set the toilet, and when the block in the line was proving too stubborn for the usual method, he hauled a 250-pound machine up my roof in the dark to use the pipe up there.
Johnnie was professional and cheerful, and I am so grateful for the efforts he went to in order to get everything working right again! Jolly Plumbing is my go-to that I will recommend to everyone from here on out.

- Amanda Rizo. 8/8/2016
I love working with the guys at Jolly Plumbing! They are often busy, but are worth waiting for an appointment. They do honest, high quality work and they make sure it is done right. I have used them for 3 major projects to date, and not only plan to use them in the future, but I refuse to use anyone else.
- Sue Layne. 8/3/2016
Cant say enough good things about Jolly plumbing. Chester and his guys are professional, reliable, friendly, and they stand behind their work. If you need a plumber don't hesitate to call. You won't be disappointed.
- John Haymes. 8/1/2016
Excellent plumber would recommend them to anyone for their prompt attention and responsiveness. Their prices can't be beat or their customer service.
- Tyson Thompson. 7/31/2016
Chester and his crew did an absolute fantastic job! Couldn't ask for a more professional and friendly group! They turned a horrible bathroom plumbing issue into a great experience. Thanks so much guys! I will tell everyone I know about Jolly Plumbing!
- Michelle N. 7/29/2016
They did an excellent job at a really good price. I had a slab leak that required jack hammering a hole to repair the pipes. The job was completed in 1 day and the repaired slab looks great. He showed me issues that caused the leak and I learned a lot along the way. I'm glad I didn't attempt to fix this myself.
- Ken Smith. 7/27/2016
Outstanding, Excellent, Very Professional. Highly recommend!
Chester Jolly of Jolly Plumbing has completed installation of a residential tankless hot water heater for me in my home. I had received bids from several plumbers that said I needed 2 tankless to replace my 2 electric I had. Chester said that wasn't needed, that he could put in 1 tankless and configure the plumbing so that I didn't need another. I was skeptical but went with Jolly and his recommendation. I made the right choice! The unit installed works perfectly and provides almost instant hot water to both upstairs and downstairs. The work done is very professional and clean! Everything is straight and clean looking. I tend to be a perfectionist! He is all about customer satisfaction, not just the money and what he can sell. He is very fair and reasonable with pricing. All the other quotes were significantly higher and tried to up-sell me.
Jolly also installed and plumbed a hot water heater and 3 section commercial sink in my store. Again excellent work and reasonably priced.
- Peter Mollett. 7/27/2016
Jolly plumbing is great he will come and take care of your problem right away we have used them for a slab leak and for a washer box replace.thanks so much jolly
- Amanda Santos. 7/21/2016
It's a rainy day and the main drain in my house got clogged. Some toilet paper came out of the drain of my shower room and the room was stinky. Jolly plumbing came to my house at 7:30pm when the rain stopped. The problem was solved quickly. They do provide an professional and prompt service. Great job!
- Xiaohua Ju. 7/19/2016
Absolutely a wonderful company. I love local companies that come on site for free, great and well explained. The office manager Jessica Jolly was a doll along with office staff and knowledgeable. Plumber Hunter and his partner Ryan had me replace my water heater and were incredibly courteous, and FAST! This was a completely last minute call but I will definitely be calling them for future plumbing needs. Great guys and company. Thanks Jolly plumber and Chester is the best plumber I know. Dont let new equpiment and new vehicles scare you away!!!! Free in home estimates.
- Darrell Kumpe. 7/19/2016
Jolly Plumbing just left my house and they were great! Hunter and Ryan were fast, courteous, and fair!! I was w/o water and dealing with another company who wasn't returning my calls/giving me the run around.
Jolly Plumbing came recommended to me by neighbors and the lived up to my expectations.
- Elly Willhite. 7/17/2016
Rarely do you find a plumber who is passionate about plumbing. Jolly Plumbing has done various plumbing jobs for me from small jobs such as replacing water heaters to the more complicated slab/sewer line breaks. Chester Jolly has always approached the job with a "how can I make it better" attitude. This is one of his key traits. He is a creative thinker and has the knowledge and expertise to execute the most complicated job. He and his staff come when scheduled and always do a follow-up. I highly recommend his service.
- Carol Prior. 7/12/2016
Excellent customer service at fair price. I felt comfortable having them at our home while my husband was at work-very polite and knowledgeable. Our plumbing issue ended up being the city’s responsibility which Jolly Plumbing informed us of-very much appreciate their honesty! Highly recommend.
- Julie Reeder. 7/10/2016
I contacted Jolly Plumbing regarding an issue with low water pressure that has been occurring for several months. Chester (who I believe owns the company) was very courteous and came out to my residence the next day. He gave a 1 hour window which was great compared to most service companies that use 4 - 5 hour windows. He was on time and was able to quickly determine the problem. He provided a free estimate and the parts/labor were at a reasonable price. He sent his crew back within a couple of hours after they had obtained the necessary parts and they completed the install that same afternoon. I am very pleased with the level of customer service, courteousness, and prompt service that I received. I will definitely use Jolly Plumbing in the future.
- Kaitlyn Harley. 7/9/2016
Did great work, were very clear about what they were doing and what it would require. Worked until midnight to get my water back on! Very very good service and exceptionally polite.
- Gregory Newman. 7/1/2016
Jolly plumbing is without a doubt the best.!!! Chester himself responded quick to my emergency, him and Darrell work amazing together. Not only are they very knowledgeable they are quick and most importantly they are HONEST, treated as if I was a family member. If you are looking for the full package then I refer you to them, also very reasonable price. Never write reviews but I know how hard it is to find good help and honest help. Oh and one more thing not only are they the best and so hard working even stayed way past working hours just to finish they are so good looking.;)
- Leslie Manery. 6/2/2016
Great job and reasonable!
- Karin Auckerman. 6/1/2016
These guys were great. They were punctual, polite and knowledgeable. I definitely recommend them.
- Kristian Skellen. 6/1/2016
I recently needed a quick fix and Jolly's Plumbing came to the rescue! The response time and their service was great. Not only was it great service and genuine concern, the price was right!! I felt as if I was getting a family discount!! :) I would highly recommend them to friends and family!
- Amy Walden. 6/1/2016
Great company to deal with. Personal service that was quick and painless. Good to know that there are good companies around that charges a fair price for the work they perform.
- Sye Saysanam. 5/29/2016
As a General Contractor I have dealt with many many plumbers in our beloved DFW metroplex. Nobody as honest and professional as Chester Jolly and his company. I refer them out to all my neighbors and customers when any plumbing is needed.
- Dagan Johnson. 5/28/2016
We've used Jolly Plumbing for over 12 years. The owner provides excellent customer service, is very timely, efficient and the work is completed properly and in a very affordable manner! If you need a good plumbing contractor in the DFW area I would definitely suggest Jolly Plumbing!
- Krisha Pullin. 5/28/2016
I'm a police officer in the area so trust is very important to me. I've Used Chester and Jolly Plumbing several times and have referred many people to him and his company. I have never heard of one bad experience from anyone who has used him. Always on time, proffecient and professional, but most importantly, I can trust them. Thanks for all your help every time I've needed you.
- James Whitmire. 5/28/2016
Chester came to our rescue after moving into a brand new home. He came out the next day after I called him on a Sunday night. Even came over late to fit us in. Plus stayed late to get our plumbing working for us. I can't not even explain how helpful and knowledgable he was. Plus one of the nicest people. If you need a plumber Jolly Plumbing is definitely who you need to call.
- Brittany Newman. 5/28/2016
Awesome service. Great prices
- Rusty Bass. 5/27/2016
Chester & Darrell saved my sanity early this morning. My mom's bathroom toilet had backed up & despite my efforts I was unable to unclog the drain. The valve from the wall had been turned off but the tank was still filling up.
When I called Jolly Plumbing I was able to speak to Chester, unlike the other larger companies I tried calling. I explained my issue to Chester over the phone & he was able to tell me the way to keep the water from filling the tank. Then within just about an hour they showed up. I now know where my main water valve is & how to turn it off & on thanks to Chester's education. Once we were in the bathroom, he explained that for now, he could put in a compression valve so that the water would be turned off completely. He also told me a few things that needed to be checked & has already worked me in to his schedule later on this morning (it's 1:52 am) to come back out & determine what further work needs to be done. They were awesomely nice & respectful while also keeping a good sense of humor considering the time. I'm beyond thankful that they were able to come & help me with my situation. I'll definitely use them for future business & they are at the top of my referral list! Thanks again Chester & Darrell!!

Local guys, very quick and courteous. Great rates. Professional job.
- Mirek Kunagl. 5/20/2016
I have used Jolly Plumbing twice and had great experience both times. Chester and his team are timely, honest, and get the job done right. We will definitely use Jolly Plumbing again and recommend them to our family and friends.
- Willis Smith. 5/17/2016
Jolly Plumbing had a quick response time when called for service. Two servicemen were sent to the house. The gentlemen were courteous, well-mannered, polite, efficient, and competent. They took the time to explain the services they were providing. Afterwards, they did a great job cleaning up after themselves and gave a thorough explanation of the services they completed. They provided excellent customer service. I would definitely use this company of professionally skilled men again in the future.
- Kelly Taylor. 5/14/2016
Chester did a fantastic job. One night I found water in the hallway and he came out the next day. He did a thorough investigation of where the leak was coming from and how much damage was done. The water was seeping into one of the guest bedrooms and I didn't even know! He did the repairs and gave a recommendation on where to go to clean up the water before mildew sets in. Thanks Chester!
- Helen Holdeman. 4/21/2016
Jolly plumbing really saved the day for me! Chester went the extra mile helping diagnosis the problem in advance using text pics which allowed me to purchase the replacement faucet before he even arrived. Pricing and policies were explained in advance.
Chester arrived timely, completed the repair with extra attention to detail, and kept cost within the estimate. Excellent service at a fair price; I definitely have a new plumber!
- Nancy Gray. 4/9/2016
On time. Up-front. Polite. Proffessional. Thorough. I would not hesitate to call them back for future plumbing problems.
- Ryan Dewey. 3/22/2016
Absolutely love Jolly Plumbing! We had a backup that resulted in us needing a plumber ASAP. We love using local businesses (not those subcontracting GIANTS), so my wife called Jolly Plumbing located here in Keller. Chester and his team were punctual and professional.
Let's talk prices... Before starting work, Chester explained exactly what needed to be done, what the options were, and how much it would cost. Jolly Plumbing was able to find our issue (two sections of our sewer pipe where a tree had roots breaking through). He marked the spot and said one of them would need to be fixed by the city. Unfortunately the other one was in my yard. He quoted me a price for the work and a dressed the other issues (reseating a toilet). After they left, the Water Services guy from the City of Keller came out to mark their locations and inquired about the 'other spot'. When I told him the quote I received from Jolly Plumbing he seemed really surprised and said it was a great price!
For this visit, they cleared the backup in the front yard, scoped the pipes using their AWESOME CAMERA (showed me the issues in HD), replaced, resealed, and reseated the toilet, all for less than $400. They even waited around to be there when the City came to inspect the issue.
Overall I'm incredibly satisfied with Jolly Plumbing. If you're in the Keller or Ft Worth area, they're the guys to call!
- Loren Mathis. 2/25/2016
Chester and Brian came out and were amazing! They were very courteous, and explained everything they were doing in detail. Best experience by far! Will definitely be using them for all our plumbing needs in the future!
- Crystal Wallace. 1/17/2016
Chester and his team provide great service. They are very knowledgeable and can get you fixed up quickly. They have done several jobs for me and I will always call on them in the future.
- Chris Reince. 1/15/2016
Awesome service, and really nice guys. Professional & empathetic.
- Sarah Rollins. 1/12/2016
This is my second experience with Jolly Plumbing and both times I've been beyond impressed and pleased. Chester and his team not only repaired a HUGE issue at my office but most recently also repaired my broken sewer line at home. The teams are friendly, efficient and punctual. They also all spoke highly of Jolly Plumbing and their owner, Chester. As a small business owner myself, I know the respect of your staff is the #1 way to tell the true bones of a company!
- Jennifer Hopkins. 0/29/2016
Shout out to Jolly Plumbing! Our sewer line busted and they got us on the schedule for repairs ASAP! Customer service is fantastic!
- Ryan Lovett. 0/23/2016
Honest team of plumbers. Everybody was extremely professional. Chester and his team have service figured out. If you need a plumber in Keller, give Chester a call. You will be highly satisfied.
- matt ward. 11/14/2015
I will use this company for all my plumbing needs. Gave me an estimated quote over the phone, was at my house the next day, fixed my issue and went beyond what was needed and fixed another minor issue free of charge and the quoted price was what was charged! Chester, thank you for being an honest plumber who is not looking to make an extra buck from someone in an emergency situation.
- Nicole Casiglio. 11/3/2015
We have used Jolly Plumbing in the past and we have really liked their great service. This time was no exception. Thank you for helping get our plumbing issues resolved in a timely and professional manner!

Excellent service and a great price as well. I've used Chester 3 times in the last year and every experience has been great! Always shows up quickly and with a smile!
- Lance Kegelman. 8/4/2015
Had a problem at my business on a Saturday. Called 5 plumbers and Mr Jolly came out immediately. Very knowledgable and fair.... highly recommend!
- Cindy Dunklin. 6/19/2015
Had a water main leak & had to shut off water to the house. Called 8 plumbers who didn't answer before getting ahold of Chester Jolly. They worked us in and came right out even though their schedule was full. Excellent work, very polite, & fair price. THANK YOU Jolly plumbing! You'll be my first call next time!
- Joel Klapprodt. 6/9/2015
As a single female, I'm always reluctant to invite a contractor to my home for fear of being misled or treated unfairly. Well--there's no doubt I've found the plumber I'll invite back again and again! Chester Jolly is a true professional. First of all, he treated me with a very high level of intentional respect and courtesy. He also made it a point to make sure that I fully understood the work necessary as well as the costs involved. He even went the "extra mile" to show me where my main shut-off valve is located in the event of a flooding emergency in my home. Add to that the fact that based on the other estimates I received, he was very reasonably priced and made himself available on very short notice. I have very high standards and I can honestly say that I HIGHLY recommend Jolly Plumbing with no reservations. If you find yourself in need a plumber--give them a call! You won't be disappointed!
- Shelly Harrison. 6/3/2015
The plumber arrived within roughly 2 hours after I called, completed the work very quickly and left no mess. The price was fair and the plumber was polite. I will definitely use them again!
- Zusi Qu. 4/19/2015
Customer service with Jolly Plumbing was awesome. I called and spoke with Chester just after lunch and he was able to fit me in that same day. I was selling my house and had a plumber visit to complete a fresh water test. That test failed due to a minor leak and that plumber couldn't find the issue and recommended that I get another specialist out to do additional testing that would cost me $800 just for the test. I called Jolly Plumbing and explained the situation to Chester and he understood the importance of the situation. He showed up later that evening performed the same fresh water test and again it failed. He found the minor leak and fix it. Then again performed the fresh water test and this time it passed. Very professional and I'll use Jolly Plumbing for all my plumbing needs and will recommend them to anyone that ask. Thank you Chester and Jolly Plumbing for everything.
- Scott Anderson. 3/10/2015
I've had Chester Jolly and his crew out several times over the past 7 years and I can assure you that these guys are quality people. He explains everything that needs to be done and why-discusses options available and the pros and cons of each. Everyone in the crews that I've talked with are solid pros and have great things to say about working with Chester. Residence, Business, Industrial. I heartily recommend these guys!

I would give Chester and his team at Jolly Plumbing 10 stars if I could! He has done so much to help me and my husband. I refered him to my Dad who would say the exact same thing about how awesome he is. He is on time, he is available, he will get your back in an emergency, and he cares about your individual situation. Chester ROCKS!!!!! I will refer Jolly Plumbing to anyone I know!

- Lori Haila. 11/12/2014
He answered my phone call promptly. I described my problem, and he quoted me a price for his services. He arrived when promised, and when the work was completed there was no increase in his bid. His conduct was friendly, professional and for an older customer...it was especially nice that I felt comfortable having him in my home. I will continue to call Jolly for any and all future plumbing services, and encourage you to do the same.
- JoLynn Jellison. 8/18/2014
Jolly Plumbing came out to my house last fall to complete an insurance job. I had previously hired two other plumbing companies that were not able to determine or locate the problem. With the other companies, I would get my plumbing fixed and then two months later, have to call them out again. Jolly Plumbing came out and fixed the problem the first time out. It has now been a year and I have not had any more problems. They were polite, professional and prompt when they came to my house. I felt completely comfortable with them in my home. They kept me up to date throughout the entire job and followed up with both me and my insurance company throughout the claims process. I would highly recommend them.
