Choose a Plumber for All the Right Reasons
Competence, Professionalism, & Trust

Sooner or later homeowners and commercial businesses are faced with plumbing problems, from the common, dripping faucet to the ever-stressful, broken water pipe. Choosing a plumber in San Diego sounds like a quick and easy task, but if you choose the wrong one it could end up costing you a lot of time, money, and stress.

Never accept the first offer or settle for the most affordable plumber, this is the first mistake people make. Always call around and ask the following questions:
  1. Ask if they are licensed. Most states require a plumber to have a license but others won't. A licensed plumber is more likely to provide you with quality service than a non-licensed plumber.
  2. Ask if they are insured for their work. The only thing worse than having a plumbing problem is hiring a plumber who makes the problem worse and isn't insured! Hiring an insured plumber will give you the peace of mind that if something goes wrong, more money won't be coming out of your pocket.
  3. Ask about additional charges. Some plumbers may charge you a fee for an estimate or add on charges for labor. Whenever possible do not hire a plumber unless they are able to provide you with a written estimate for their work.
  4. Ask about their previous experience with your problem. Some contractors specialize in low flushing toilets, while others have more experience with clogged pipes. If a plumber has had previous experience with a problem similar to yours, the less likely the problem will have to be fixed again by a second plumber.
  5. Plumbers should be able to give preventative recommendations. When the plumber is at your home or business addressing the problem, ask them if they know what caused it or what could be done to prevent it in the future. The more you know about your home or business, the more time and money you will save by not having to repair it due to simple everyday mistakes, which could be avoided.
Most experts agree, you should go through the process of choosing a good plumber BEFORE any plumbing problems arise. In many cases, it's a time-critical plumbing problem and needs to be repaired as soon as possible.

If you haven't selected a plumber, and run into an emergency (with no time to go through the proper steps), it's always a good idea to ask your friends and family. They will give you firsthand experience and information about their own plumbers. This should make your choice a lot easier and relieve the situation faster.

Remember, when choosing a professional plumber, there's nothing better than finding a person or company that meets your own personal criteria. Things that you consider vital and important are not always the same for everyone else.
