The Plumber's Friend

Since 1983: Plumbing Parts, Expert Advice, Helpful Customer Service.

The Plumber’s Friend in Kansas City was founded in July of 1983. Over the course of the last 30 years, our company has built a business on supplying commercial plumbers, residential plumbers, and DIY plumbers with common and hard-to-find plumbing parts to solve nearly every kind of plumbing problem. At the same time, we’ve earned ourselves a reputation for expert advice on all things related to plumbing and plumbing parts.

At The Plumber’s Friend, our job is to provide parts to plumbers, so they can get things fixed. We also offer advice and parts sales to residences. We are open to the public! Some homeowners call us “The Answer Guys” because we have over 6,500 different parts in stock and we’re passionate about knowing what part is the right part for nearly every type of job. Kitchen and bath plumbing problems and parts are one of our areas of expertise, and we encourage our commercial and residential plumber clients to try and “stump us” with odd or antiquated plumbing parts. We love a challenge!

The Plumber’s Friend near Wornall Road and West 74th Terrace in the Waldo Area is owned by lifetime area resident Patrick McShane who was born and raised in the Brookside/Waldo area. Patrick and his business partners bought the business in 2006. In 2012, Patrick bought out his other partners. He works every day to ensure that The Plumber’s Friend is Kansas City’s friendliest plumbing parts supply store. Patrick and the other “Answer Guys” at The Plumber’s Friend invite all area commercial, residential, and DIY plumbers to visit the Kansas City, MO store and see how 6,500 in-stock plumbing parts and three decades of experience can help them with their plumbing repair problem.

“Our expertise is our biggest selling point. If you have a problem, we have a solution.”
