Let’s be honest — it’s not hard to find a Seattle plumber. However, it doesn’t mean it’s easy to find the right one. Your plumbing system is not something you want to entrust with just anyone. Not only can a problem leave you high and dry when it comes to essential functions of your home, but also it can end up costing you a ton of money.

At Price Busters Plumbing, we understand it can be difficult to know for sure if you’re working with the best of the best. For that reason, we have recommendations for what to check when choosing a plumber.

1. Services

Plumbing is not a one-size-fits-all type of trade. A good technician is going to have a comprehensive skill set that can be applied to a wide range of projects. When you’re reviewing the qualifications of a firm or person, make sure they do, in fact, have the right qualifications to assist with your issue.

For instance, Price Busters is a Seattle plumber comprised of professionals who are highly skilled and proficient in many different plumbing systems and methods. Whether it’s a simple pipe leak or a full bathroom remodel, we handle it. Our list of services is quite broad:

  • House, water heater, garbage disposal, toilet, sink, and faucet repairs
  • Bathroom, kitchen, and water heater installations
  • Sewer main installation and repairs
  • Sump pump repairs and installations
  • Waterline repairs and installations
  • Drain cleaning and clearing
  • Camera locate services
  • Drain and sewer cleaning

2. Technology

It’s probably not a shock to hear that plumbing technology has evolved over the years. It’s now important for a plumber to have access to tools that make it easier to pinpoint where an issue is and decipher how best to address it.

To use our experiences as Seattle plumber as an example again, in a situation of water line damage, Seattle homeowners are responsible for both their own sewer systems, as well as the side sewer that transports liquid and waste to the public line. Through the use of cutting-edge techniques in camera location and trenchless sewer repair, we’re able to save customers a massive amount of time and money. We’ll give you the simple, non-invasive steps:

1. A camera is inserted into a line.

2. A live feed is sent to a technician.

3. The technician assesses any damage or weaknesses in the line.

4. The repair is made to the line WITHOUT any digging.

Before camera and trenchless technology, this type of problem required breaking up ground, making repairs, and restoring the area back to its original state. Think about this — if this was your problem, you’d be paying and waiting for permits, excavation, and a rebuild of your property and public land. Yikes.

3. Pricing

Obvious, right? The bulk of us tends to go for the most bang for our buck. It’s a natural desire that dependable plumbers understand. Not to toot our own horn, but affordability is kind of our thing; they don’t call us Price Busters for no reason.

Our pricing is competitive, but we don’t stop there. We also offer special deals for added savings. For instance, we are currently running three specials:

  • $50 off any plumbing repair with promo code SAVE$50
  • 5% off senior discount for any plumbing repair with promo code SAVE5%
  • 5% off veteran discount for any plumbing repair with promo code VETERAN

4. Response Time

As the old saying goes, time is of the essence. This is especially true if you have a water leak that’s driving up your bills or just straight-up ruining your home. In most cases, a plumbing complication is something you want to handle right away.

In our world, we regularly see that disasters don’t wait for business hours. In fact, some might argue Murphy’s law ensures plumbing emergencies happen in the middle of the night or right before a very important event. That’s why we’re prompt and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know people want a plumber who will be there in their time of need!

5. Good Reviews

It’s hard to remember a time when reviews weren’t a factor in everything we buy and experience. It’s truly changed our world for the better — it helps us all to be more well-informed (and consequently more protected) consumers. Before you hire a plumbing company, see what other people are saying about them by checking out review sites like Yelp or HomeAdvisor.

Case in point, providing excellent service as a Seattle plumber is something Price Busters’ technicians work hard at and it shows in the reviews. Here are just a couple of the many comments we’ve received:

“As good as it gets. After attempting to coordinate a supply line repair with large plumbing shops, Price Busters followed through thoughtfully and remarkably quickly.”Karl E.

I had price busters replace a water heater tank and a main water shut off valve. They were very responsive and prompt to send me a bid which was very competitive. They were very professional and did an awesome job. I would definitely call them again for my plumbing needs.” — Chris S.

  1. I found it interesting how you mentioned how plumbers can use modern technology to reach cracks and clogs never before reachable. My wife and I have a clog in the downstairs bathtub. It’s been there for a long time and we have decided that it is too deep to remove without tearing open the wall. Because my wife and I are preparing to sell our home, I will keep this in mind as we search for a blocked drains specialist who is up to date on their technology!

  2. I found it interesting how you mentioned how you should always check the response time of a potential plumber because accidents can happen at any time and should be fixed fast. My wife and I are in the process of preparing our home for our upcoming family reunion and we want to make sure our plumbing is well suited to handle the fifty people that are planning on using it. I will keep this in mind as we search for a plumber near us that can respond in case something goes south so everyone can stay comfortable!
