About Us

Dynamic, developing family owned business servicing Canberra for 8 years.

The owners of Mr Pipes plumbing are Dominic & Carmen Thornton. Dominic & Carmen are the proud parents of four beautiful children. Dominic was born in Queensland and moved to Canberra after finishing High school to study at the ANU. The Uni life wasn’t for Dom so after a stint working in the public service, he started his apprenticeship in 2005.

Dom worked for a professional and reputable local plumbing company where he was exposed to all manner of plumbing. He became a specialist in domestic plumbing where he helped clients with blocked drains, leaking taps, kitchen and bathroom renovations. He also gained invaluable experience in the back end of the company, helping with project management and estimating on larger projects.

Armed with this knowledge, Dom and Carmen started out in January 2013 as Foundation Plumbing & Gasfitting. After a busy couple of years, they decided to change the name to something more synonymous with plumbing, hence Mr Pipes was born. The main vision of Dom and Carmen witn Mr Pipes Plumbing is to provide a service that they are proud to stand in front of.

They believe that the only way that they can deliver this is to have an exceptional company culture where people are developed as people, not just another number.
