Tampa Plumbing Company Credits Their Success to Mother and Son Partnership

Mom Jackie is a master plumber and son, Mike, runs the business.

TAMPA, FL - Jackie Hamlin and Mike Haisten have a non-traditional working relationship. Unlike many father and son business partnerships, theirs is a ‘Mom and Son’ arrangement. “We’re the only ‘Mother and Son’ plumbing company in Tampa,” Mike said recently.

Jackie earned a Master Plumber license after a career in the agriculture and nursery industry where she worked with wells, pumps and irrigation design. Residential and commercial plumbing was a natural step for her when she decided to leave the industry. Her son, Mike, had worked for many years for one of the country’s largest plumbing companies, Roto Rooter, and had always wanted to strike out on his own. They thought they could fill a niche in the Tampa market, so was created in 2012.

“We saw a need for a plumbing company that gave accurate estimates of costs, treated their customers and employees like family, and provided professional, honest services at affordable prices. There are a lot of plumbing companies in Tampa, so we really needed to show how we were different,” said Mike.  

Their business name,, is the first plumbing company in the U.S. to have ‘dot com’ as part of their legal name.

“We know people go to Google to search for services. We wanted to make it easy for them to remember us and encourage them to find us online,” said Mike.

Mike acknowledged the help of another family member in the success of their company; his stepfather and operations manager, Mark LeBlanc. “We couldn’t have done it without his support.”

Mike and his team have grown the business quickly. They have gone from one van to ten in the first year. And currently, 47% of business comes from previous customers.

Jackie agrees their unusual approach has paid off. “It was my dream to work with my son and our business is doing very well. It must be the ‘mother’s touch’.”
