How Much Does a Quality Plumber Cost?

When you run into a plumbing problem, your first instinct is probably to call a plumber. When this is the case, it can quickly become a stressful process. Most plumbing issues are time-sensitive, so you want to find a professional who can make it out to your home in a flash. Although this is the case, you also want a plumber that you know can do the job. On top of all this, you need to factor in price. This is when you start asking yourself questions like “What’s a good price?” and maybe even “Is this too expensive?” or “Is this price too good to be true?”

We’re here to talk about it today. We’re experts in plumbing in Vail, AZ. We’re going to be sure to help you when you need qualified work that’s going to serve you right. You can always come to our team members for the services you need. 

How Much Our Plumbers Cost

Jesus Miranda. Our Plumbing Specialist.

Most professional plumbers in our area will charge you about $175 and up for the hour. This is because most plumbers in our area work for bigger companies and their rates are a little higher. On our team, we’re just as experienced and just as professional, but charge a lower rate of about $149 per hour. This rate covers our services for the time, but does not include any parts should you need them. Our team is a family. We know each one of our plumbing professionals personally so we can vouch for any team member who makes their way out to your home.

When to Call a Plumber

We recognize that plumbing issues are time-sensitive and, a lot of the time, you might not realize when it’s the right time to call us. We want to make sure you know when it’s time to get in touch with a professional. Here are a few times it’s appropriate to call us. 

Water Pressure Issues

If you notice that the water pressure all throughout your home suddenly changes, then it’s a great idea to get in touch with a professional plumber about it. Water pressure changes are bad news. They indicate an imbalance somewhere in your plumbing system and we can help you figure out where it is. 


Don’t ever ignore a leak. Even if you think that the leak is so mild that it’s not going to negatively affect your overall plumbing system, we can assure you that it’s going to do a significant amount of harm. It’s always best to address the issue rather than ignore it. 


Clogs are bad news. They’re also a plumbing issue. Make sure that you get rid of your home’s clogs to the best of your ability with professional plumbing care. We’re available to help you with this. 

An Unexpected Increase in Your Water Bill

Are you noticing that your water bills have increased with no clear cause? This is a problem because it indicates an underlying issue somewhere in your plumbing system.
