Getting plumbers in Tallahassee

skyline

Plumbing problems can strike at any time. Burst pipes, backed-up toilets and clogged drains wreak havoc on some of the everyday comforts we take for granted.

Choosing the best plumber can be challenging — some plumbers focus on repairs, while others specialize in bathroom remodels and new construction. When selecting a plumbing company, choose one that has experience in the type of work you need.

Common plumbing problems in Tallahassee

While Tampa’s mild winters mean residents don’t have to worry about frozen pipes, the heat and humidity can cause problems for plumbing fixtures of any age or material. Common plumbing problems in Tallahassee include:

  • Leaking pipes and fixtures
  • Low water pressure
  • Water heater failure
  • Drainage issues from heavy rain and storms
  • Root intrusion in supply line pipes
  • Clogged drains and sewage systems

While it’s easy to notice the problem, it’s more challenging to diagnose how to fix it and perform the work. Hiring a professional plumber ensures repairs are done quickly, correctly and safely.

The cost of hiring plumbers in Tallahassee

Most plumbers charge an hourly rate and add the cost of any parts needed for repair. In Tallahassee, the average price for a residential plumber is $70 an hour. Some plumbers may charge flat rates for specific types of jobs.

Plumbing service Average cost
Unclog drain $125
Drain line video inspection $250
Sewer line cleaning $195
Toilet installation $145 (plus parts)
Water heater installation $625 (plus parts)

The average national cost of hiring a plumber is about $300. In Tallahassee, the typical range for a plumber is slightly lower at $125 to $325 per project.

Ask about any additional fees that affect the total cost of repairs. Most companies charge extra for emergency services or repairs made outside of regular business hours.

Questions to ask a plumber in Tallahassee

Cost is a top consideration when hiring a plumber, but other questions you should ask include:

  • How much experience the company has
  • What past customers say about their experience
  • Whether the company does preventative maintenance
  • Whether the company is licensed, insured and bonded

In Florida, plumbers must be at least 18 years old and have four years of experience or a combination of college and experience before they can become licensed. They must also pass a state certification exam and background check. Plumbers are required to have public liability and property damage insurance.

If you plan to have plumbing work that requires any new piping or re-piping, you must apply for a permit with the City of Tallahassee. Plumbing permit application fees range from $54 to $127, depending on the type of work you are having done. Your plumber should let you know what permits are necessary and provide assistance obtaining in them.
