About Us

Quality Workmanship, Honesty & Integrity – A family tradition.

Quality & integrity is not a new concept for this family owned business. Although Harmsma Water Treatment (formerly part of 1000 Islands Water Treatment & Plumbing) has been operating since 1992, the commitment to uncompromising standards is a family tradition passed down through the generations.

Rick Harmsma started offering plumbing and water treatment services to customers in 1992, but the roots of this business go back even further, to 1975, when his father Peter Harmsma, a Dutch immigrant, worked hard to provide exceptional service to area customers. His motto was to “do it right the first time”. That was ingrained in Rick from a young age. Rick’s nephew, Tim, joined the family business in 2002, and later Rick’s son, Dustin, was added to the crew.

In 2016, Rick began Harmsma Water Treatment, providing only water treatment services. Tim continues to provide only plumbing services under the original business name “1000 Islands Water Treatment and Plumbing”.

Rick’s reputation speaks for itself and results in word of mouth business on a routine basis. He is dedicated to providing his customers with honest value and excellence in customer service.

He prides himself on doing the job right the first time. He does not cut corners and refuses to compromise his high standard of quality workmanship and superior products that will perform for many years to come.
