Hudson Plumbing Services FAQs

What can a plumber repair?

The plumber is responsible for repairing and installing pipes, fixtures, and other plumbing equipment. In addition to fixing leaks and unclogging drains, the plumber may also be called on to install new pipes, heaters, water tanks, or toilets. 

Plumbers are trained to work with various materials, including copper, cast iron, galvanized steel, PVC, and PEX. They must also be familiar with plumbing systems' various fixtures and fittings. Sometimes, the plumber may also be responsible for installing gas lines or performing sewer line repairs.

How do I choose a plumbing contractor?
  • Ensure that the contractor is licensed and insured. This will protect you in case of any damage or accidents that may occur during the course of the project. 
  • Ask for references from previous clients. This will give you a sense of the contractor's quality of work and whether or not they're likely to meet your expectations. 
  • Be sure to get a written estimate before work begins. This will help you avoid any unexpected costs down the line.
How often should I have my drains cleaned?

For most homes, drain cleaning should be done every one to two years. If you have a slow drain or notice bad odors coming from your drains, however, you may need to have them cleaned more often.

How much does it cost to have my drains cleaned?

Generally speaking, expect to pay by the hour, with rates ranging from $45 to $200 per hour. Sometimes, a flat rate may be offered for simple drain cleaning jobs. However, if the clog is more severe, you may be charged by the foot, with prices starting at around $100. In either case, getting a quote is important before work begins.
