Simpson Plumbing was created and founded by Dale Simpson’s passion and commitment to providing quality plumbing work in Vancouver, Camas, and the surrounding Southwest Washington area. The foundation of his philosophy is simple: Give customers the results they expect and deserve at a fair and ethical rate.
Founded in 1981, Simpson Plumbing LLC spent its first year in Portland, Oregon, before relocating to Camas, Washington where the business has grown and developed further. In 2001, Simpson Plumbing brought in a third family member: Dale’s son, Brad, who learned the skills of the plumbing trade and is now continuing the tradition begun by his parents. Growing the company and increasing value brought to customers, Simpson Plumbing is truly the local plumber of Camas with a history.
The company has made it a priority to not only solve plumbing problems but help customers take care of their plumbing and home. Doing so with educational pieces on social media, their website, and during service calls.
As the service area has grown with new residents over the years, so too has Simpson Plumbing, helping thousands of satisfied residential plumbing customers in Southwest Washington. Many of whom are not just customers but feel like a part of the Simpson Plumbing family.
That service extends to volunteering in the local community. Giving back is an essential part of the business. That’s why Simpson Plumbing has chosen to donate company time and resources to help the local Camas/Washougal community.
Simpson Plumbing received the “Neighborhood Favorite” award in 2018 and 2019 from Nextdoor and is proud to be BBB Accredited with an A+ rating. The company is highly rated on Google, Home Advisor, and other platforms.
Dale has worked the plumbing trade for 40 years, serving the Camas, Washougal and Vancouver areas since 1981. This level of experience has brought him an expertise that gives him the ability to take on nearly every imaginable home or commercial plumbing project presented to him.
Dale also has a passion for hunting and fishing, but nothing matches the joy his family brings him. Dale has been married to his wife Lori for over 30 years, and has enjoyed raising their three wonderful children (Bryan, Brad, and Katie). He enjoys his days fishing (and lots of it), hunting, taking care of the shop and being a grandfather to his six grandchildren.
Brad’s interest in the plumbing profession started early, with memories of helping his father run water piping under houses at the age of 7 (under the strict supervision of Dale, of course). Over the years, his plumbing knowledge grew under the tutelage of his father, who handed down the values of hard work and the skills needed for professional plumbing installation. Brad holds those lessons close to his heart and always strives to be better and give his customers the best service, value, and experience possible.
Brad is married and a proud parent of his daughters Hayden and Maya, and youngest son Hunter. He loves the outdoors and spends his leisure time fishing, boating, and playing volleyball.
Kent decided to go into plumbing due to his mechanical inclination and came into it quite naturally. His favorite thing about the job is “good, nice customers.” Kent loves to work and cook. He really enjoys Mexican food and cooking it even more so. Says he makes really good carne asadas!
Kenny began his plumbing career as a drain technician and eventually went on to do service work. It’s hard to say whether Kenny found plumbing or plumbing found him, but we’re fortunate it did. Kenny’s favorite aspect of the job is fixing what others can’t; and he just really loves helping people. His hobbies are mining and working on his motorcycle. Lastly, his favorite food is “hot and free,” but he particularly enjoys barbecue.
Bryan began his plumbing career with an opportunity to do excavation plumbing work and transitioned to service. He went on to start his own plumbing business in Portland which he had for eight years! Bryan enjoys camping and the outdoors and family is very important to him. His favorite food is Mexican (el pastor tacos — maybe it’s a service plumber thing?)
Chris decided to go into the plumbing trade because he likes working with his hands and figuring out the challenges that come with plumbing. Fun fact: He has almost no sense of smell, which is very handy for the job! Chris enjoys snowboarding and playing/coaching football. His favorite food is steak and reubens.
Christian moved to Washington from Montana after being offered a plumbing apprenticeship here. His favorite thing about plumbing is that it’s outside and hands on. Photography and working on cars are Christian’s top two hobbies. He likes Italian food and burgers.
Jason joined the plumbing trade after becoming a father. He really values the financial opportunities of the job. His favorite hobbies include playing poker and watching UFC. He loves spaghetti, chicken parmesan, and just chicken in general. He’s definitely on the Italian food train.
Jamie has been plumbing for five years and loves that his work takes him to new places every day. He decided to go into the industry once he got tired of traveling for his other job. Now his traveling stays local! Jamie enjoys the great outdoors and its activities and his favorite food is barbecue.

After learning about computer repair, Shannon became a Powder Coat Technician and found a passion for labor. He loves learning how to take things apart and put them back together the right way, and in turn felt like plumbing is a great outlet for that process. His hobby continues to be working with computers and his favorite food is steak and mashed potatoes; a timeless classic.
Tyler has been in sales for most of his life but was getting bored of doing the same thing and wanted a job that could keep his brain and hands busy at the same time. His favorite part of the job so far is that every day is different. He said that “even though I’m new to the industry, I feel Simpson still treats me with respect and has been so gracious and welcoming”. We’re very excited to and fortunate to have Tyler on our team. His hobbies include playing poker, watching college football (“Go Ducks!”) and woodworking. Last but not least, his favorite food is breakfast burritos.

"Super responsive and professional. Did an amazing job both times they came out to my house. Will definitely be using them in the future!"
"Love Simpson Plumbing! Been using them for years!"
"We had an underground leak between the meter and the house. After using a leak detection service to get a general idea of the location, Kent made a visit to give an estimate. The following day, on schedule, he and a co-worker returned and within 30 minutes had located and fixed the leak. Their charge was considerably less than the estimate!!! Yes, I’m very satisfied and would not hesitate to use them again."
"Kent was professional and did an excellent job explaining the scope of work. He did an excellent job leaving the work area clean."
"Kenny was very professional and thorough. So thankful he was able to diagnose and install the same day! Very impressed with the customer service and quality of work."
"While doing a remodel I ran into a plumbing issue and called around trying to find a plumbing company on short notice. I ended up calling Simpson Plumbing and they were the only ones who could get me in on short notice. They sent Kenny Heflin out who patiently worked through a difficult issue and got our kitchen water back up and running. Kenny was thoughtful and had a positive attitude while he worked through the frustrating problem. Thank you Kenny and Simpson Plumbing. I will definitely be using you again."
"Simpson Plumbing is fantastic! We had busted a water line off on a wall and flooded the whole house, and Brad came in to repair all the plumbing. The same thing happened in our bathroom, and he came and fixed that, too. Brad has also fixed the plumbing under the bathroom, as well. We had him come out to hook all that up, just to make sure it was done right the first time, and he did it, and it was fantastic. He also gave us an absolutely fantastic price. I have recommended Simpson Pluming to many of our friends, as well. Brad was very professional. It was a job well done. He was very efficient, and it was just fantastic."
"Simpson Plumbing replaced three aging toilets and one sink for our bathrooms. Dale, Brad, and their crew did an excellent job. One of the water tanks came with factory defects and they remedied the situation in a professional and speedy manner. They respected our house by keeping the work area clean and tidy."
"Simpson Plumbing LLC. has very good prices. I like that they will bill me rather than having to pay right away. I am a landlord, so I may be away at work, but he will go take care of it all and then bill me. Other plumbing services won’t do that, and other prices do not compare. Simpson Plumbing LLC is honest, too. They had one situation where they came out, evaluated everything, and didn’t charge me for it. I would definitely recommend them. I have been using them for about six months. I first used them in my own home, and then started using them for rentals."
"Kent and Kenny were awesome! So friendly. Very knowledgeable. I like that Kent explained everything to me in detail and he actually saved me some money because they did such a fantastic job! Great representation of the company! Thanks guys!!!"
"Thank you Simpson Plumbing for getting back to me on arranging an appointment on my plumbing problem so quickly.Your service guy Kent was so nice and patiently listened to my dilemma and handled the problem with ease. It means a lot to work with people who care. Very satisfied."
"I discovered our STEP system wasn’t working properly and the tank was quickly filling with large amounts of waste. I contacted Simpson Plumbing and they were out the next day first thing in the morning. Kenny was personable and kept us up to date on what he was finding. This ended up being an all day job for him. I know it wasn’t easy as he was elbow deep in the muck. We would highly recommend these guys!"
"Kent made two trips to get our spare shower fixed. He did a great job by finding the problem. He was on time the first visit and early the second (having to do two trips was not his fault, by the way!) He was very kind and courteous, and let me watch out of my own curiosity … putting up with all my questions. Calling for an appointment is easy. That they sent Kent was our bonus!"
"We had a long-standing low water pressure in our house. Kent and Ken came out and after investigation decided the problem was with a PRV at the street meter. They gave us the cost of the project on the spot. Two days later Ken and Chris came out and efficiently replaced the valve. Now we have water pressure that works! Thanks so much, Simpson Plumbing! You were great!"
"I had Kent out to quote replacing my two old hot water heaters with a new 75 gallon one last week. Yesterday Kent and Ken arrived when expected and had the job finished when promised and went beyond my expectations. They were professional and friendly and able to answer other plumbing questions unrelated to my hot water heater. I appreciated them taking the extra time to explain things to me. I will definitely be using Simpson Plumbing again and I will recommend them to anyone needing a plumber."
"Hot water line in our concession stand burst from the cold. We were able to quickly shut the water line off so it was not an emergency, just urgent. Simpson responded quickly, was analytical in discovering where in the ceiling the leak was, they made a minimal hole in the drywall to access and repair, and did the work quickly. VERY appreciative of their professionalism!"
