Aaron Gaynor, Owner/CEO

Aaron started in the plumbing trade straight out of high school and has been a licensed plumber for 24 years. His continual pursuit of knowledge has made training and career development an essential part of Eco’s mission and core values. In January 2021 Eco opened its first training center. The Eco University provides people the opportunity to learn the plumbing trade and create a rewarding career.


Plumbing is a great choice to learn. Here are some top reasons to join our training program

  • Plumbers protect the health of the nation:
    Water supply, water heating, and waste systems must be maintained to keep everyone healthy
  • Year-round demand for service:
    Some trades have slow or off-seasons which can cause payroll inconsistencies. Plumbing demand is far more consistent.
  • Recession-proof:
    Once you have learned to plumb, you can earn a steady income provided you are licensed per state or local requirements.
  • Pandemic-proof:
    During the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, plumbing was classified as an essential service. Eco implemented cleaning protocols, use of PPE and other measures to safely service homes during lockdowns.


The high level of technical training and customer service that our team provides to clients requires a true commitment to learn our unique service system and develop technical expertise. During your weeks of training, you will learn an array of skills as you complete the Nextech Academy program and work with your trainers. They will teach you many skills as you work toward successfully becoming an independent service professional. You will also enjoy the camaraderie of the team and have some fun along the way!
