Plumber Pricing Guide

What does it cost to hire a local plumber? A couple things to consider:

Different work takes different time, and different tools which can all affect the cost of a plumbing job. Even in the most common residential plumbing jobs, the costs can be wildly different depending on what needs to be done.

A simple toilet repair like replacing a wax ring or unclogging a drain can be as low as $100 whereas replacing piping for your home can cost thousands.

Plumbing jobs unfortunately are not as straightforward as say installing a new refrigerator. Home and businesses can be built decades apart, use different materials, adhere to outdated codes and so on. All of this adds some uncertainty to the job.

Often times it can be hard to provide an accurate quote until the plumber has fully inspected and diagnosed the problem and even then, unforseen issues can arise.

Difference between Joe the plumber and a plumbing company

Due to high plumbing costs it can often be tempting to hire a freelance plumber from places like Craigslist or other job marketplaces. However, this is not recommended. Many of these independent plumbers are not licensed, bonded or insured which can leave you with little options should something go wrong. They also often misrepresent their experience and skills which can leave them in over their head and you with an inadequate plumbing job that may need to be entirely redone.

It’s better to think of a plumber as more of a doctor than a delivery driver. Sure you may not care who delivers your pizza but you will definitely care who completes that surgery on your body. You certainly wouldn’t want a doctor from Craigslist and the same can be said here. Plumbing is a technical job which requires skill, training and experience.

I used Almighty Rooter to clean out the Catch Basin using a high powered vacuum trunk to remove the grease and sediment. I viewed the entire process from start to finish and was amazed how the high pressure of the technique of vacuuming broke up the materials in the catch basin. The cost of vacuuming was higher cost than using a shovel and bucket however well worth it.

The gentlemen who came to my home to unclog my kitchen drain were professional, on-time and quite knowledgeable. They were so efficient that my husband and I hired them at the homes of our respective parents. My mom in particular had a leak that was impacting a neighbor - again they were timely and efficient. Unfortunately the leak has returned but after several calls to Almighty, they have not returned. And I really like this group - having been a home owner for 20 years I know good service and I had hoped to be able to continue using them. Now, I have to find another plumbing company. Hope they are as good as this company.
