Serving Tulsans for 35 years, Robertson Plumbing Supply is located at 43rd and Mingo.
“Robertson Plumbing Supply has the largest inventory of repair parts in the state,” says owner Eric Danels. “The Romans might have commercialized plumbing, but if they were located in Oklahoma, they’d be coming to Robertson for repair parts.”
The company is a landmark known for having supplies that go back to the 1920s. As plumbing parts specialist Leroy Martin puts it, “We like to show our customers how to do a job whenever they get stumped by a plumbing project, and we generally have the parts they need in stock.” Even on the rare occasion when a part is not in stock, Leroy can order it and generally have it ready for pick up the next day. If you ever experience a plumbing problem, Leroy or one of the other Robertson Supply parts specialists is always eager to serve you. “Advice is always free,” says Leroy, “and we have solutions for your plumbing challenges.” Leroy has been selling plumbing parts for nearly 40 years.
Robertson Supply has been serving residents of the Tulsa metro area for 35 years and has been at their current location at Mingo and 43rd Street for four years. Prior to that, they were located on Admiral.
Eric says Robertson Supply is on the leading edge of plumbing technology. Today’s communication network has made it really simple for customers to explain any plumbing problem they experience; they can even take a quick photo of a part and send it to Robertson Supply. The staff will then discuss any problem with the customer and make recommendations to successfully complete the project. And customers don’t even have to come to the store except to pick up the part or materials. “Save time and money,” says Eric, “and check with Robertson first. Odds are you’re going to come here anyway after you’ve spent a day running all over town.”
Eric says he focuses on educating customers and the general public about the differences between wholesale plumbing products and retail products. “You’re going to find that wholesale products and parts are better quality, will last longer, and it will be easier to find replacement parts if and when they are needed.”
Robertson Plumbing Supply carries the most popular brands and genuine OEM replacement parts. Even if you need a replacement product for an older home upgrade or renovation, they can help you get the proper one. They carry an inventory of kitchen, bathroom, and outdoor faucet products and parts, and the storeroom is full of valves, toilet flappers, supply line hoses, and many other plumbing items. They also carry Shark Bite fittings, enabling the professional or homeowner to make repairing a water line a simpler task. If you need to re-pipe an entire home or business, Robertson Supply will even do detailed drawings and supply you with a complete materials list.
The employees of Robertson Supply are experts in plumbing, heating and air, and electrical. They carry many makes and models you’re familiar with including Delta, Kohler, Union Brass and T&S Brass, plus a huge warehouse of parts. “We have just about any repair part for any plumbing fixture,” says Leroy.
Robertson Supply wants to be the first place you think of whenever you have a plumbing need. Store hours are Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
