Plumbing DIY – How to Find a Good Plumber!

Monday, July 6th, 2009

One of the hardest things in life is finding a good, honest plumber who will fix your plumbing problems and make sure the problem doesn’t happen.

Here’s a couple of suggestions on how to find a good plumber:

  • For small jobs, most plumbing companies can give you a quote over the phone such as clogged toilet or kitchen sink.  Do call 3-4 plumbing companies and see which one has the lowest price and ask them if they can guarantee the rates or if they will give you a discount.
  • For larger jobs such as plumbing that requires drilling or digging, you will want to find the right plumber first.  Do you research and call the speciality plumbers.  For example, you’d want to contact us for trenchless sewer jobs since we “specialize” in trenchless sewer jobs.  (although we do most regular household plumbing too)  Again, get several different quotes and meet the plumbers in person.   When you meet them in person, note how promptly they show up to your appointment time.  If the plumber is seriously late, you might want to consider another plumbing company even he’s the cheapest, he might take forever to get the job done.
  • Also ask if the plumber provides free camera inspection services.  (we do free camera inspection)  A lot of plumbers might try to rip you off by charging you $50 CASH for a camera inspection.  These guys are scammers as they take cash and not tell their company about it.  (sorta middlemanning their own plumbing company)  I’ve seen this happen recently, I couldn’t believe this plumber charged $200 CASH for a camera inspection.  Most good plumbing companies will do this free of charge.

You really want to find a plumber who gives you honest quotes on the jobs you need done.  Sometimes, a lot of the national brand companies will rip you off so go with a local plumber.
