Why Plumbing Price Quotes Can Be Tricky (Without A Closer Look)

When something goes wrong with your plumbing system, you need the repair done as quickly as possible. However, you still don’t want to be charged far more for a service than it is actually worth. That’s why most homeowners call around for a price quote before choosing a company for clogs and pipe repairs.

But you should know that it’s not easy for plumbers to give price quotes over the phone for anything other than an installation or a standard maintenance job. That’s because leaks and clogs vary so much in severity that it’s difficult to tell just how bad the problem is. Take a look at a couple of examples:

  • A drop in water pressure: This could be due to a pipe leak anywhere in the plumbing system, or it could just be a result of scale buildup from hard water. These repairs differ significantly, especially when it comes to the location of the leak.
  • Drain clog: While there may be an easy-to-reach clog close to the drain, a clog that affects multiple drains is further along in the sewer line. You might have a clog that can be blasted away by a hydro jetter, but it could be a tree root infiltrating the sewer pipe. The cost of repairing the latter issue is far greater than the former.

Our Advice: Make Sure You Choose a Quality Company

These days, there are plenty of ways to ensure you have chosen a quality plumber. Ask friends and neighbors for recommendations (but be cautious of suggestions that you allow a family member to repair it). We recommend that you check a company’s reviews online and make sure they have a history of showing up on time and repairing the problem correct
