Typical Plumbing Repairs

It's a constant aspect of being a home owner (or really anyone in general) that sometimes gets overlooked or just neglected. You use plumbing every day, it's really impossible not to. Washing your hands, taking a shower, flushing the toilet, etc. It all requires a proper plumbing system, and it requires that everything is working correctly.

Here are some common issues a normal person can run into, along with potential costs when it comes to plumbing repair:

  • Leaking pipes: Maybe obvious, but the point here is that sometimes a leaking pipe will be located in an area that you don't normally see. But, when that pipe continues to leak, you can guarantee that you'll notice soon when the water is on the floor or running down the walls.
  •  Hot water heaters: It's easy to forget about, because it's normally in the garage or a small closet that you normally don't look at. But it's very important to check it's condition and be aware of it's age. A busted hot water heating can be devastating. 
  • Faulty Faucets. Again, obvious issue. And it's something you should see (and hear) if it's there. The important thing to remember is to get it fixed ASAP.
  • Running toilets: A very common issue, that can normally be corrected by the homeowner. But just like faucets, if you don't take care of the problem immediately, running toilets will begin to run up your water bill.
  • Clogs, build-ups, sewer problems, etc.
There are a ton of potential issues of course. Some are very simple, some aren't. If you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself, we definitely don't suggest even starting the project and call a pro like our plumber allen tx friends.

Cost is always a factor, really with everything in life, but in general most plumbing costs are low if we're looking at just basic repairs. Most plumbers charge anywhere from $50 to $150 per hour (with a probable minimum hours stipulation). So unclogging a toilet or fixing that leaky faucet probably would only run you a couple hundred dollars.

Obviously, when looking at repairing a broken pipe or something like a remodeling job, then you'll be looking at a much higher cost. For those instances it may be worth getting quotes from more than one company to make sure it fits in your budget.
