Do you hear gurgling or bubbling sounds when you flush the toilet or turn on the sink?
Are you are hearing odd sounds coming from the faucet?
Experiencing low water pressure?
Unpleasant smells coming from the drains?
Is water and sewage from toilets, drains, and sinks backing up into the home?
Bathtubs, showers, and sinks draining slowly?
When looking for a plumber ALWAYS do your research.
Nothing is worse than thinking you are getting a deal on a full inspection with service and instead get stuck with 10 more problems. We've all been there at least once, and its never pretty. Be sure to take the time and ask if the plumbers are certified. Always do your research before calling just any plumber out to your home.
Ask about the total cost upfront so there are no surprises.
Some plumbing companies will charge you a separate rate over the phone and a completely separate one when they come out to your home and that can be for a variety of reasons, what we usually see is that your property may need more repairs or a completely different action required than what was discussed over the phone prior to a full inspection.
Is there an hourly rate for calling the plumber out?
Hourly rates usually pertain to septic tank dig ups which can take anywhere from 4-6 hours. your septic tank is usually located about 1-3 feet deep and unless your plumber is completely out of shape it shouldn't take any longer than 4-6 hours. And if that is the case, it would probably be a good time to call a different plumber. A regular maintenance call, on the other hand should be a flat rate.
If your plumber is trying to tell you it could cost you an arm and a leg, get a second evaluation.
You would do the same if a doctor told you the only thing they can do to save your life is to amputate your limbs. So be smart about who you call, and if you can, get more than one inspection.
Not everything needs to be replaced.
Yes things will need to be repaired, but rarely will you need to replace major lines. But if that's what you are being told then ask yourself a few questions:
Is your house outdated?
When was the last time you've had replacements?
Is anything cracked or broken?
What is the real problem here?
What costs am I looking at?
When you call out a plumber you are paying a fee for a serviceman to drive out to your location, a fee for the inspection, and then the cost for fixing the drain cleaning, plumbing, or septic tank pumping. Septic tanks, leach lines and other piping leads away from the house and is grounded about 1-3 feet depending on county and how it was installed. plumbers will usually take about 2-4 hours to dig up the space, but it really all depends on the number of plumbers who come out and how dense the dirt is.
