About Merit Plumbing:
A Visionary Leadership

JJ Donaldson, hailing originally from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, brings a wealth of experience and a passion for excellence as the CEO/Owner of Merit Plumbing, based in Sarasota, FL.

In 2004, JJ ventured to Florida as part of a Canadian company tasked with a significant project: relining municipal sewer systems for Sarasota County. His expertise and dedication quickly propelled him to play a pivotal role in Florida’s operations. However, as life evolved with the addition of a family, JJ found himself seeking a more balanced lifestyle that didn’t entail frequent travel or extended periods away from home. This prompted his transition to a residential service plumber in Sarasota, where he embarked on a journey of skill refinement and professional growth.
