Our Team

The HomeWise Plumbing team is a group of dedicated professionals who work hard to keep our customers' plumbing systems flowing smoothly.

The team is lead by David Topelko, who had a dream to bring honest and affordable plumbing to the residents of Victoria and Vancouver Island. He started what was once known as Plumb-Perfect Plumbing & Drainage. The name has now changed, but Dave continues to lead this amazing group of plumbing technicians.

We have a professional, experienced and expert crew of plumbers.

Our apprentices have received the top marks at Camosun during their trades training to become journeyman red-seal plumbers - a recognized standard of excellence across Canada for trades training.

Our mission is to maintain our position as the go-to plumbing and drainage service in Victoria and all of Southern Vancouver Island. We do this by providing the highest quality plumbing service around. To that end, we retain staff who show integrity and a courteous demeanour. Our plumbing professionals are trained in all aspects of the plumbing trade, from simple clogged toilets to whole house repipes - our team can handle every job, big or small. We are proud to say that we constantly recieve calls from our customers complementing our crew on their level of service.

  • Dave Topelko
    Owner / Co-Founder
    This guy started it all! He's been plumbing in Victoria for many years, and accumulated a wealth of experience. Along with that experience, he brings a forthright attitude and community spirit to the leadership of HomeWise Plumbing & Drainage.
  • Susanne Topelko
    Board Member
    Ain't she purdy! This gal's been part of the HomeWise Plumbing family since the beginning, encouraging her plumber-hubby, Dave, and keeping the home fires burning while he's out saving our customers from plumbing disasters at all hours, day or night.
  • Jada Leppky
    Revenue & Operations
    Jada's been with HomeWise since early 2012, starting as a corporate image and web developer. She soon took on the bulk of business administration, and now manages our day-to-day operations as well as overseeing protocols and procedures. Have a question? She's got the answer.
  • Eric Hoffman
    Journeyman Plumber
    He can plumb, he can gas fit. Bursting with organizational skills, Eric is an office favorite at HomeWise Plumbing. Our customers are fond of him, too!
  • Riley Hoffman
    Journeyman Plumber
    Riley Hoffman, Eric's Borther
    We'll get his picture up here one day. Might need the Paparazzi in on it, though. Riley is a great guy. Good lookin' too, we promise. He's our resident Back-Flow Prevention expert, a gas fitter, and all-round real swell plumber!
  • Cameron (Cam) Bell
    Journeyman Plumber
    This Kiwi is a terrific plumber and gas fitter. He's got other talents, too: pianist, drummer, guitarist and singer/songwriter. He brings as much heart to HomeWise Plumbing & Drainage as to his music.
