About Us


Thank you for visiting us today, and welcome to Intelligent Plumbing Services, Inc., a Division of Kerr Mechanical.

Intelligent Plumbing Services provides a range of professional plumbing services for the homeowner with a level of personal attention and enthusiasm you won't find anywhere else. We care about your home as much as you do.


How we show we care

When you call or email Intelligent Plumbing Services you’ll notice a few things right away. First, we respond quickly. You won’t have to wait hours or days to speak to someone, or to schedule the work.


On the day of your service, we will call to confirm, and when we arrive, we’ll park so we don’t block your driveway. Rest assured we will be on time, and prepared to solve problems with a fully-stocked company truck, and the knowledge and resources of more than 30 years in the plumbing business.


Trust with verification

We employ only the best of the best; licensed plumbers, highly-experienced and refreshingly honest, courteous and knowledgeable about their chosen craft. Every employee must undergo rigorous testing and background check to earn their Intelligent Plumbing Services uniform and company ID.


Red Carpet Service

Before entering your home, your plumber will lay down a red carpet just outside your door, and slip on shoe covers to protect your floors. We’ll discuss any special needs and to the extent possible will honor your requests. We’ll explain exactly what we’re doing, how much your service will cost and how long it will take. And when we’re done we’ll clean up the area and haul away old materials, parts and debris.


Our "Forever" Guarantee

We honor all manufacturers’ warranties and stand behind our workmanship forever. Parts and products fail over time, but we guarantee that all work performed by Intelligent Plumbing Services will be completed properly or we'll be back to make it right.


Our History: A Family Legacy for more than 30 years

Bob Kerr got his start in the plumbing business while still in school, sorting cast iron pipe for his friend’s dad. After graduation, he became an apprentice and journeyman in that same shop. There he honed his skills on high-end custom homes, 80-story high rises and Fermi Lab.

Throughout the 70’s Bob built a loyal following before opening Robert Kerr Enterprises in 1979. With wife Sallie at his side, tending the books and supporting the business behind the scene, they expanded within five years to become Kerr Mechanical Corp.


"Better call Bob.""

Today Bob Kerr is a household name in commercial plumbing. Well-respected by developers, architects and contractors alike for his innovative solutions and mechanical workmanship, he is uncompromising when it comes to function, efficiency and integrity.


"Never hurry! Think it through.""

Jason Kerr fondly describes his apprenticeship under his dad as “baptism by fire.” But having one of the best role models in the business taught him well that providing consistently successful plumbing solutions means using your head.

It was only logical then that Jason would take the knowledge passed down to him to bring the intelligent commercial plumbing capabilities of Kerr Mechanical to homeowners.

In 2005 Kerr Mechanical launched Intelligent Plumbing Services to serve the needs of homeowners. This is the legacy, passion and commitment of the entire Kerr Family.
