About Us

ap_mascotAkins Plumbing & Septic was founded in 1986 as a small plumbing & septic service company. Today, we have grown and expanded but still offer the same great personalized service as we did over 20 years ago!  Akins has grown and expanded because of our simple philosophies:  Hire the best technicians and take care of your customers. This idea is lost on many companies that have grown and stood the test of time.  We keep our customers happy by providing excellent service each and every time.  Our customers know they are getting a fair price, timely service, and expert installation or repair.  We are a no-nonsense service company – we are dependable, honest and upfront. All of our technicians are state certified and licensed. No excuses, just results!

Ricky Akins, Founder & President

rickyRicky Akins has been a Master Plumber in the state of Georgia for over 20 years. When certified he was the youngest Master Plumber ever. Today he uses those years of experience to manage his team and achieve great results with near 100% customer satisfaction on every project.

Our Philosophy

Akins Plumbing trains each employee on the following:

  • No project is too small.  We treat every customer with the same professional service – whether their project is worth $40,000 or $40.
  • We quote each project up front.  No hidden fees or surprise charges at the end.
  • We will explain, in detail, in words you can understand what needs to be done and why.
  • We are available 24/7 365 days a year for the convenience of our clients.
  • We prioritize service calls based on need.
  • We are honest and up front.
  • We will show up when we say we will.
  • A service technician will call you prior to coming to your house to confirm the appointment and also to discuss the problems.
  • A real plumber will answer the phone, not a call center.
