Welcome to Di Giovanni Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning
When Lou Di Giovanni was young, his father took him to the shop of Matt Giannone, a family friend, to get Lou a job.
“You don’t have to pay him,” said Mr. Di Giovanni. “Just teach him.”
And so began the lifelong career of Lou Di Giovanni’s greatest passion, plumbing.
“I worked as a for a long time sweeping floors and carrying tools back in the 1970s,” said Lou. “From 1976 until 1981, I worked as an apprentice during the day and attended Dobbins Plumbing School at night.”
In 1980, Lou took the Journeyman’s Test. Two years later, he received his Masters Plumbing License.
The following year, 1983, Lou Di Giovanni started his own plumbing business and nourished it into a successful business that continues to serve Philadelphia and all of the surrounding areas.
“It’s funny to look back now and think about how it all started back in the 1970s and how far the business has come,” said Lou. “Today, I own Mr. Giannone shop. He taught me everything I knew when I was young.”
Since those days, Di Giovanni Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning has become a household name in the Philadelphia area, along with the business’s signature, illustrated logo and Lou’s professional reach far exceeded even his own expectations.
As a member of the City of Philadelphia Plumbing Advisory Board, he contributed greatly to the development of plumbers in the Philadelphia area.
Among other things, Lou helped to revise the Journeyman’s Master Plumbing Tests for the city.
“I believe in life that you just have to find something you love doing and work hard at doing it,” he said.
This is a mantra best exemplified by the quality of work Di Giovanni Plumbing, Heating, & Air Conditioning does.
