Checklist: Hire a Plumber

Plumbers can be very expensive, and combined with the fact that hiring a plumber is typically a grudge purchase, consumers generally experience sticker shock with their plumbing bill. However, there are several ways to get the most value for your money. The following can help you save money on your next plumbing repair:

Before you call:

  • Compare hourly rates of several plumbers.
  • Make a list of plumbing problems.
  • Group plumbing problems together and make one call.
  • Buy your own plumbing fixtures for your plumber to install. 
  • Consider skill and experience over a cheaper hourly rate. Having an inexperienced, inexpensive plumber who doesn't fix the problem correctly can require a second plumbing call. Avoid those mistakes by hiring quality first.

Preventative Tips:

  • Make sure all exterior faucets are properly shut off during cold weather.
  • Drain pipes if you will be away for an extended period of time.
  • Reduce the need to call a plumber by maintaining drains properly.
  • Use caution when putting food and organic matter down the drain.

Ideas to Consider:

  • If you are available, ask your plumber questions before he leaves or while he has some down time. Seek his advice on things you can do to avoid clogs, frozen pipes, slow drains and other plumbing problems.
  • Call a plumber out once a year for a plumbing checkup. You have regular checkups on your body and car, plumbing should be no different. Have a plumber out after winter ends or before you turn on your sprinklers in the summer.
