What We Do

From Leaking Faucets to Gushing Pipes - We can help

In 1981, a young Jeff Parks—the son of a local Skokie plumbing inspector—hit the bricks of Chicago with nothing more than a van and a dream.  He wanted to, one day, build a Chicago plumbing company that people wouldn’t just want or need, but one they knew they could trust.

Almost half a century later, that dream has built a company.  That dream helped put together a team of expert Chicago plumbers.  That dream invented our PARKS’ ‘DOUBLE GUARD’™ SYSTEM—a backwater valve flood control system that boasts over a 99% success rate after forty years of installation.   And that dream has created a place the people of Chicago can go to for honest, trustworthy, hard-working plumbing and sewer services.  Our highly skilled team has cut their teeth on everything from flood control and plumbing to gas line repair, and they continue to fulfill these services with the care and attention befitting those of their experience and caliber.

For over forty years, Parks’ has worked to serve the people of Chicago with industry-level professional service and a neighborhood charm, and few others can match the experience, innovation, and sense of local Chicago camaraderie Parks’ provides its customers—regular, new, or anywhere in-between.

So… leaky faucet got you down?  Pipes burst?  Is your basement flooded… again?

Well, worry no longer, frown no more, and if you give us a call, you can…. SMILE TODAY….WE’RE ON OUR WAY!

Why Choose Us

Expect The Best With Parks' Service

You deserve good flood control, and our service is some of the best you’re going to get.  

To prove it, we’ve gone the extra mile and built some of our own flood control systems, like the PARKS’ ‘DOUBLE GUARD’™ SYSTEM, a backwater valve flood control system that has over a 99% success rate after forty years of installations; or our patented J-Vault, our custom-made fiberglass flood inspection and maintenance vault that’s better to install, comes with a clean and neat finish, and lasts for over 75 years, 50 years longer than a regular concrete vault.

With forty-plus years’ experience, trained by men who worked on the Lunar Landing Module and nuclear ballistic missiles, we know what’s at stake when the situation demands true quality work.  And Parks’ Plumbing & Sewer has maintained that level of commitment to quality and craft so we can give you what you deserve—the best.

We have been using Parks for quite some time. We had flood control put in and have them rod out our sewer line regularly...The Parks team was efficient and professional. We didn't even know they had been there they are so neat. Matt was very fair and easy to work with.

We would like to commend Parks' and the whole crew for doing a fabulous job installing interior drain tile in our basement. Matt Finegan was wonderful to work with and gave us exactly what we needed to solve our water problem...They really know their business.

I greatly appreciate that Parks' Plumbing sent mechanic Bob to repair our clogged kitchen sink. After 3 days of trying myself, it didn't unclog. When Bob came, it took 25 minutes, and the drain opened up. IT was so amazing and we were so impressed. We highly recommend this company instead of wasting your time. Fee is reasonable as well.
