History

Clowater’s Plumbing & Heating started in 1944 when Ernest Wesley Clowater set out on his son’s bicycle on a plumbing service call.


EWCHe upgraded a few years later to the family car and in 1964 was joined by his three sons Donald, Gordon and Wesley Clowater. They created E.W. Clowater & Sons Ltd.

burning-officeE.W. Clowater’s & Sons worked out of their old family home until 1986 when it was destroyed by a fire that began at 9am in the morning. Not one to accept defeat, by 2pm the phones for Clowater’s were up and running in Wesley’s home.Without the help of the plumbing community in Fredericton; notably Fred Beairsto of Beairsto’s Plumbing and Reg Leachman & Early Scott of Leachman’s Plumbing & Heating providing us with supplies and helping with service calls, Clowater’s would not have been able to build back bigger and better.


GWDClowater’s Plumbing & Heating was awarded the Fredericton Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence award for small business in 1990.That’s when Clowater’s Plumbing & Heating was formed and now that’s what we go by.
