About Kost Plumbing
Hello! My name is Thomas Kost, owner and operator of Kost Plumbing, serving the plumbing needs of residents and businesses of Marion, Lake, Sumter & Alachua Counties based out of Reddick, FL. We proudly service Ocala, The Villages® community, Belleview, Dunnellon, Silver Springs, Summerfield and all the surrounding cities with top notch plumbing and handyman services.
It all started for me, 30 years ago installing and repairing water softener systems along the Gulf Coast of Florida. After that, I moved to North Carolina and worked under a licensed plumber at a large construction company, learning the ropes. It was there that I gained all the valuable knowledge of not only plumbing but also all aspects of carpentry as we had to do a little bit of everything! After 12 years in the mountains, I felt it was time to return home to my roots here in North Central Florida. I acquired my State of Florida Plumbing License in 2011 and formed Kost Plumbing. Our business is a family-minded business. We are small, but care a great deal about our customers and our main goal is to always provide excellent customer service with an honest and fair price.
The lifeblood of our business is our awesome customers and the referrals they provide. We want all of our satisfied customers to spread the word about Kost Plumbing, and let all their family and friends know of the super job we did for them, and that we can do the same for everyone else. That is what drives our business forward.
On a more personal note, I have been married to my wife for 24 years and we have 2 beautiful daughters who are graduates of North Marion High School. Florida is great for outdoor activities, and when I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my family boating, fishing, hiking and swimming. My wife is the animal business and we have a large variety of pets that call our home theirs…from small to large…so there’s never a boring day in the Kost home!
