    Tips for Hiring a Plumber

    Last updated 2 days 10 hours ago

    Hiring a plumber for your leaky faucet or sewer repair may not seem like an important decision. But choosing wrong can lead to serious financial and plumbing disaster. In this article we will look at some of the most relevant factors to consider before hiring a plumber.

    Licensure

    Plumbers in the state of California are required to hold a license to practice plumbing work. To ensure reliable plumbing work, only hire a plumber that is licensed. You can find out online whether the plumber is licensed, but feel free to ask to see the license in-person before hiring the plumber.

    Insurance

    Never hire a plumber that does not have insurance. A plumbing company that is insured and bonded will provide financial protection for you, your home, and the plumber in the event of injury, accident, or damage.

    Business Experience

    Before hiring a plumber, ask him how long he has been practicing or how long the company has been in business. Opt for a plumber or a plumbing company with at least several years of experience, or ideally several decades.

    Warranty

    The plumber you hire should offer a warranty that covers the parts for at least 30 days, and the labor for at least 90 days. If the plumber does not guarantee his work or parts in any capacity, do not hire him.

    References

    Ask the plumber to provide references. Talking with the plumber’s past customers will give you a good sense of the plumber’s work and his reputation for customer service. Check the plumber’s reputation online—in particular, on the Better Business Bureau’s website—so that you know of any formal complaints that have been filed against the plumber.

    Answers to Commonly Asked Questions about Home Plumbing

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Without question, indoor plumbing is one of the greatest human inventions to date. Imagine what life would be like without working toilets or indoor bathtubs. While nearly everyone enjoys indoor plumbing to some extent, few people would consider themselves experts in the field of plumbing maintenance and repair. After all, that’s why plumbers exist. o help you become a more knowledgeable homeowner, here are answers to some of the most commonly asked questions about plumbing repair.

    Why Would I Want a Camera Inspection of My Sewer Line?

    Sewage lines that run beneath your home used to be impossible to inspect, but thanks to fiber optic cameras, your plumber can now diagnose the condition of your sewer line and any other hidden plumbing pipes in or beneath your home. By having your sewer line inspected by a professional plumber, you will be able to pinpoint and repair minor problems before they require major solutions.

    How Are Sewage Lines Repaired?

    Cable machines and high-pressure water jets can be used to clear drain lines, but they cannot be used to physically replace or repair damaged drain pipes. With trenchless technology, your plumber can burrow underground and repair your sewer lines without ripping up your landscape.

    Should I Call a Plumber to Repair a Minor Toilet Leak?

    A lot of people are content to live with a leaky toilet, citing the cost of repair as the primary reason why they do not call a plumber. Unfortunately, the cost of repair is significantly smaller than the long-term additions to your monthly water bills. A toilet leak can waste approximately 22 gallons of water per day, or over 8,000 gallons per year. Not only is that a lot of wasted water, but it can amount to significant water bills.
