Brad Vines

Owner

Brad has been around plumbing his entire life. His father, John Vines, started John’s Plumbing in 1984 so he began learning the business at a very young age. He worked every weekend and summer break. His parents always encouraged him to seek a profession that he enjoyed. As a result, he began taking flying lessons at the age of 17. After graduating high school, he attended Auburn University and graduated with an Aviation Management degree with Professional Flight. While at Auburn he received a Commercial Pilot Certificate, Multi-engine Rating, and Instrument Rating in hopes to pursue a career in aviation. In January of 2003, Brad’s dad unexpectedly past away. Brad finished his degree at Auburn in August of that year. At that point, he made a decision to work for John’s Plumbing instead of pursuing a career in aviation. He did not want to see the business his father worked so hard to create sold to the highest bidder. A few years later, Brad purchased the business from his father’s estate. Like every business, they have had good times and bad times. But if you ask Brad, he will tell you that the bad times help him to appreciate the good times even more. People always ask him, “Do you ever miss flying airplanes,” and he tells them “only if I pass an airport or hear an airplane fly over”. Brad is a Certified Master Plumber, Certified Master Gas Fitter, and Certified State of Alabama General Contractor. He attended the University of Florida and received a TREEO backflow certification. Brad has also completed the manufacturer specific training for Lochinvar boilers, Navien tankless water heaters, Noritz tankless water heaters, and Leonard mixing valves. Brad is married to Brandi Vines and has two children, Cameron, age 6 and Hudson, age 3. They live in Clay, Alabama and are members of North Clay Baptist Church. His hobbies include riding dirt bikes and water skiing.
