The Bevilacquas, 1000 Years of Experience and Counting

The Romans built the first aqueduct more than 2,000 years ago.  Designed to carry fresh water to Roman cities and to dispose gray water into sewers they were an engineering marvel, and made the acquisition of water easier for the common man.  One thousand years later, amongst years of drought, a man in Palermo, Sicily, developed an aqueduct to bring drinking water to his community.  The people were so grateful they began calling him Mr. Bevilacqua, which means Drinkwater in Italian.

Acqua PlumbingLater the Bevilacqua family immigrated to the US, and since that time they have served as plumbers or contractors in every generation and in every setting imaginable. Now, nearly one thousand years after Mr. Bevilacqua built the aqueduct, the Bevilacqua family continues to bring drinking water to their communities.

Here in Seattle, father and son, Fred and Anthony Bevilacqua, operate Acqua Plumbing.  Backed by generations of family knowledge and experience, they are able to tackle any plumbing problem and emerge victorious.   Offering services from gas piping to drain cleaning Acqua plumbing is available 24-hours a day to fix plumbing emergencies as they arise.

The Bevilacquas have also committed to educate other plumbers.  Refusing to keep their vast generational knowledge to themselves they strive to help make other plumbers better through their Acqua Continuing Education Program.

Although plumbing jobs aren’t glamorous, someone’s got to do it, and Acqua plumbing and the Bevilacqua family are among the best in the Northwest.  Learn more at

    Alternatively, if you want to send me any information to update/enhance the story, we could update it and repost it under my name and Google Authorship. It was a fun story. Few businesses can report a history that spans so many generations.
