Meet Our Team
In sports, winning teams feature players and coaches that have talent, passion for the job, a strong work ethic and an ability to work together smoothly as a team. At All Clear Plumbing, our team is no different. All those ingredients have helped us grow from one plumber in one truck when we opened in 2012 to seven crews on the road today. Our growth has been spurred by All Clear serving as a haven for plumbers who are interested in being a plumber – not a salesperson.
Our Field Group is made up of experienced, talented plumbers and apprentices, who are eager to receive on-the-job training. Our Office and Ownership Groups feature individuals with diverse professional backgrounds who’ve come together to help make our business thrive. The one common theme among our entire team is a commitment to customer service. It’s simply our No. 1 priority and it’s made All Clear Plumbing the top plumbing company in the Upstate.
All Clear Plumbing’s team of plumbers offer a wealth of experience, and Ronnie helps lead the way. The Upstate native’s plumbing career started in 1982.
While Ronnie technically began learning about plumbing at the Golden Strip Career Center, there was certainly plenty learned through osmosis as Ronnie’s father and grandfather were plumbers.
Ronnie’s quiet nature can bring calm to any tense plumbing problem. Ronnie shows up each morning ready to go and never running out of work is what he likes best about the job.
All Clear Plumbing has attracted a staff of plumbers from all over the country, but no one’s journey was longer than Arthur’s. Arthur began working at All Clear after moving from his hometown of Hilo, Hawaii. He quickly earned the nickname of Hawaiian Ice after struggling to adapt to South Carolina winters!
Even when he’s freezing, Arthur’s warm, fun personality shines through and helps put customers at ease. After 13 years in the plumbing industry, Arthur says helping people in their time of need and helping them protect their biggest investment (their home or business) is what he likes the best.
Away from work, Arthur enjoys camping, hiking and spending time with his wife and their three children.
Chris B is a career plumber hailing from Williamston, SC. His background is in service plumbing which has given him plenty of practice with drain cleaning. He loves the variety that this profession provides as well as the opportunity to meet so many new people. His hobbies include sports and playing the drums.
Considering his family tree, you could say that Chris was destined to pursue a career in the plumbing industry. As a 3rd generation plumber, so you could say it runs in the family.
Being able to help solve customer’s problems is what Chris likes best about his job. He credits his father with teaching him everything he knows about plumbing service.
During his spare time, Chris enjoys playing the guitar, drums and video games. He also likes to swim and go long boarding.
Kenneth has been an apprentice with All Clear Plumbing for a little more than one year. After long hours and no weekends off in the restaurant industry, Kenneth decided to follow in his family’s footsteps. Kenneth’s father, Ronnie, is part of our plumbing team and Kenneth is looking to become a fourth-generation plumber.
Even prior to joining our team as an apprentice, Kenneth knew how to pull up, reset and rebuild toilets thanks to his father. As a cook, Kenneth could never see the satisfied faces of customers. That’s what he enjoys most about working in the plumbing industry. He said there’s nothing like arriving at a call for a customer who’s overwhelmed and stressed and leaving them happy and relieved.
In his spare time, Kenneth enjoys cooking, photography, classic cars, hunting and fishing.
Kevin joined All Clear Plumbing’s apprenticeship program in 2015. During that time, Kevin’s enjoyed learning as he goes on service calls. He says learning something new each day is his favorite part of the job, along with being able to work side-by-side with “good guys.”
Away from the job, Kevin enjoys hiking, visiting the beach and spending time with his family.
Paul was All Clear Plumbing’s first apprentice as he joined the program in the summer of 2015. The Sioux City, Iowa native came to All Clear after serving the country as a member of the Air Force.
Paul is nearing the end of his plumbing apprenticeship at All Clear Plumbing and has been a star student. He is very capable as a plumber and works independently when appropriate.
In his spare time, Paul enjoys weightlifting and disc golf, and he also has a big interest in cars.
James has been a plumber for over a dozen years and has tried a little bit of everything the field has to offer. From new construction on big commercial jobs to med gas and everything in between, he is always interested in increasing his skills and knowledge. A native of Greenville, SC, James loves problem solving, the people that he works with, and figuring out how things work. He loves building things with his hands and playing video games. We are sensing a bit of a trend here – James is a handy guy to have around and as friendly as they come.
Micah is new to the plumbing field. He joined our team in 2018 with the hopes of gaining admittance to our plumbing apprenticeship program. He really enjoys working with a team and helping customers. Being able to learn something new each day is important to him and his personal development.
Micah is a native of Greenville and during his time off he enjoys basketball, traveling, fishing, and spending time with his family.
Aaron is an apprenticeship candidate and new to the plumbing profession. You’ll see him helping out our more experienced plumbers as he starts to learn the trade. Originally from Cumming, GA Aaron clearly loves learning new things as he has quite a diverse resume that includes everything from working in kitchens to pyrotechnics! In his personal time, Aaron enjoys hiking and traveling.
When you call into All Clear Plumbing during the workday, the voice you typically hear on the other end will either be Trina or April. April joined our staff as an office assistant in April 2017.
In her time away from the office, April enjoys sightseeing, traveling, antiques and spending time with her family. Her family includes their pets as April is an animal lover.
When Anja hires a new plumber, she’s not concerned with their prior sales rate. From a business standpoint, she’s merely looking for what kind of plumbing skills they possess and if they are a team player. Our company culture is arguably more important than skills. A great plumber with a bad attitude won’t make it onto our team.
Anja and her parents each have different business backgrounds that have come together to help make All Clear a thriving company since it opened for business in 2012.
After earning a degree in graphic design, she went on to study business at Furman University. Anja collected more than 10 years of experience in marketing and business development before giving All Clear her full-time attention. Those design skills helped Anja create All Clear’s logo and lettering.
Trina could be called “the voice” of All Clear Plumbing. Whenever you call us at 864-979-7059, there’s an extremely good chance Trina will answer your call. If she happens to be on another line, you’ll probably end up talking to her to make your appointment.
Like fellow co-owners Scott and Anja, Trina’s prior work history has helped All Clear grow since it’s opening in 2012.
Prior to moving to the Upstate from Tampa, Florida in 1997, Scott owned a landscaping company while Trina operated a daycare. Those experiences have helped with the entrepreneurial aspects of running All Clear.
Once the Smith family arrived in the Upstate, Trina began working as a bank teller. Over the next 19 years, she moved her way up to vice president of operations. During the latter portion of her banking career, Trina would come home and take care of All Clear’s paperwork each night.
As All Clear’s business continued to boom, it got to the point where a hire was going to be needed to handle everything Trina was doing in her spare time. With the best person for the job already here, Trina retired from her banking career to work for All Clear full-time.
Now in addition to handling our financial paperwork, All Clear’s customers get to hear Trina’s pleasant and calming voice during their time of plumbing troubles.
Scott isn’t just a plumber, he’s THE plumber! As the founder and owner of All Clear Plumbing, Scott has a master plumber’s license and holds our LLR. That’s a fancy license that just means you are in good hands with him. It is Scott’s expertise and experience that All Clear Plumbing is built on.
You might think that as the owner, master plumber, and founder Scott isn’t in the field much, but that’s not the case. The whole reason Scott started his own company was to get out of the corporate rat race of being a plumbing “salesman,” and focus strictly on actual plumbing. Scott loves his craft and is often found on job sites. He might even come clean your drains. No job is too big or too small for Scott.
On his rare days off, Scott likes to fish. He’s also been known to go alligator hunting in the Lowcountry! He loves spending time working with his family (his real family and All Clear’s family of plumbers), including the Smiths’ two great danes.
While Scott is the plumber who created it all for All Clear, all of our plumbers are handpicked by him because of their superior knowledge, friendliness, and experience. They are the best plumbers in the Upstate.
