About Us

Dutchman Drains & Plumbing, Inc. is a family owned and operated company founded by the husband and wife team of Eric & Sheila Crownover. Eric is a Veteran and licensed plumber with over 20 years plumbing experience. Dutchman Drains & Plumbing, Inc. is known for their professional and courteous plumbing services throughout our service area encompassing the Merced County, Southern Stanislaus County and Chowchilla area. Offering both commercial and residential plumbing services 24/7.

Eric became interested in plumbing while working on a dairy through high school, he derived a great deal of satisfaction from the work and realized the benefits to civilization as the result of good, solid plumbing techniques and protocols.

The rest of the story is now part Dutchman Drains & Plumbing, Inc.’s history. After Eric’s service in the U.S. Marine Corp., he came back stateside and went to work for local plumbing companies. Together, Eric and Sheila realized customers deserved something better than what the industry typically offered. Sheila ran her own business for many years as a sign language interpreter and brought the professionalism, logistics and organizational skills she practiced into their plumbing business along with adopting customer friendly protocols like guarantees, timely service, a clean and polite manner, plus exemplary work they’re proud to put their name on, these are just the beginning of the many differences you’ll find with Dutchman Drains & Plumbing, Inc.

We thank you in advance for your support of Dutchman Drains & Plumbing, Inc. and promise to do everything in our power to keep it!
