Chances are, you want to avoid extremely high-cost plumbing companies because their prices aren’t reflective of great work but a dishonest plumber. On the other hand, very low-cost plumbers may end up leaving you with more problems than you started with.

Finding a middle ground between the two is a sure way to get the best quality plumbing work for the best price. Unfortunately, when there is a plumbing emergency, it can be difficult to tell which prices fit this description so we have listed three common plumbing problems and what it typically costs to repair them. Keep reading for more information!

The Dread of Leaking Pipes

You will likely know if you have a leaking pipe. However, because it is something you won’t notice daily, it can be easy to ‘forget’ to call a plumber. While this might be something easy to forget, you’ll regret it later when there is water damage and mold (both expensive to fix!)

The cost of fixing a pipe is very affordable. This cost doesn’t typically include labor but if you call before the leak has a chance to get worse, labor costs shouldn’t be unexpectedly high.

Get Rid of Clogs!

A common problem found in every household at one time or another is a clogged drain. When this problem happens, you may experience slow-moving water in sinks, low water pressure, and overflowing toilets.

Eventually, a bad clog can lead to a ruptured or cracked pipe. This problem seems pretty straightforward enough to fix, however, store-bought remedies aren’t the solution.

Many people will take a trip to a hardware store to purchase a drain snake or drain cleaner with the intent of clearing the clog. Unfortunately, when used improperly, a drain snake can damage piping. As far as chemical drain cleaners go… avoid them! These products are dangerous to you, your family, and the environment, and can damage your plumbing.

To safely get rid of clogs, call a plumbing professional. If we determine the clog is near the surface of the drain and can be reached by a drain snake, that is exactly what we’ll do. If the clog is out of reach, then we will recommend hydro jetting. Hydrojetting is a safe and effective process that uses high-pressure water to blast away clogs and debris. The cost of this process varies based on the severity of the clog and the type of drain that it’s in.

Don’t Ignore The Constant Drip, Drip, Drip

A dripping faucet may be annoying at first but ends up blending in with the background noise later. Just because you don’t hear it anymore, doesn’t mean it is causing any less damage.

A constant water drip can cost you $20-200 on your water bill every year. If this doesn’t make you want to fix it, the fixture itself will need to be replaced prematurely and the potential for mold and mildew growth is high.

Luckily, repairing a dripping faucet will save you this extra money, on a year-to-year basis.
