About JD Plumbing & Gas

JD Plumbing & Gas was started in 2017 by Jason Docherty, in his hometown of Nanaimo. Since then, Jason and his team have become a household name by providing exceptional customer service and great workmanship, at an affordable price.

We pride ourselves on being reliable, knowledgeable, and time-efficient. We go above and beyond at every step of the way to provide the best plumbing services in Nanaimo. By teaming up with other local contractors, we are able to provide a variety of services from plumbing to electrical to help both our residential and commercial plumbing and heating clientele with all of their needs in Nanaimo and the surrounding areas.

About Jason

Jason is the founder of JD Plumbing & Gas and a company partner with his brother, Alex. Born and raised in Nanaimo, Jason obtained his Red Seal Journeyman plumbing ticket by the age of twenty-one. His ticket has taken him to work in Northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories but he always came back to Nanaimo.

Before starting his company in 2016, Jason spent time in Ohio and South Carolina completing a dog training apprenticeship. In his free time, Jason trains his dogs as a hobby.

No challenge is too big for Jason to take on. While Jason is well versed in all plumbing and heating practices, he specializes in diagnostics.

Apprentice in Training

JD Plumbing’s newest apprentice, specializing in all types of gas. He has a small stature making him quick and nimble, and able to access small spaces with ease. He is quick on his feet and likes to keep busy throughout the day. With a little encouragement, Liam is a fantastic help cleaning up after jobs. He has been found sleeping on the job recently, but we have been assured that he will grow out of it. Liam is the glue that holds us together so we let him get away with it.

Whether you have gas, oil or electric heat, Jazz is thrilled to lend a paw, ensuring everything is up to snuff as seasons change. His love for the heat, and his overwhelming fondness for people, will leave you smiling – just like Jazz.
