About Us

Remember: After the sale is when honesty and good service matter most!

Sturm Plumbing/The Faucet Doctor® was first featured in the November issue of the national magazine, Home & Garden, for their specialty plumbing services.

In August 2005, Larry Sturm (our founder) was quoted in the New York Times for his expertise with specialty toilets.

In Dec 2006, the Bob Vila Show called to interview him. It makes you wonder . . . is Oprah next?!!!

Larry Sturm is the founder of Sturm Plumbing/The Faucet Doctor, an established plumbing company in Harrison City, PA. Larry Sturm graduated from Thaddeus Stevens Trade School with a two-year associate’s degree in a program for disadvantaged kids in Lancaster, PA. The funny story was Larry Sturm never planned to be a plumber. He just went along for the ride with a high school friend taking an admissions test. The friend didn’t get admitted, but Larry Sturm did. It surely was the right path for his life. Larry Sturm was named at graduation “Most Outstanding Plumber.” Now, add more than 44 years of experience in the field to that!

He is a registered master plumber who is considered by most plumbers to be the top dog in the specialty field of hard-to-solve plumbing. Many years ago, it started with just faucets and then moved into upflush toilets and any odd fixtures or situations that plumbers would come across. They knew where to turn for help. Watch Larry Sturm on a computer, and you’ll think your six-year-old is a genius, but put Larry Sturm in a bathroom with new, odd, or obsolete fixtures or a serious problem to solve. Stand back, and watch the master work!

Starting in 2016, Larry Sturm turned the business ownership over to his son, Jason. Larry Sturm will still be available for plumbing calls though. Years ago, Larry Sturm could not keep up with all the demands for their services, so Jason stepped in to work alongside his father. Jason has proven himself to be highly skilled in the plumbing field and just as hard of a worker as his father. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University.

Honoring our “buddy” Russ Musgrove, who went to be with the Lord on February 12, 2017. Our store would not have existed if not for the excellent work of Russ. He was the true Good Samaritan that helped many customers and became friends to so many in the community. He was our store manager for over 19 years. We were truly blessed to have such a great man representing our business. He will be greatly missed by so many that loved him.
