How to choose a reliable Austin plumber

There are nearly 60,000 licensed plumbers in Texas. To find the right plumber for your home, start by reading online reviews and talking with friends and neighbors. Austin-area realtors are also a good source of referrals — they often keep lists of reliable, quick-response plumbers.

Unless it’s an emergency, it’s a good idea to interview at least three plumbers and ask for:

  • References from recent customers
  • Written estimates for work to be done
  • Payment options and schedule
  • Proof the plumber is licensed and insured

Why is it important to hire a licensed plumber in Austin?

When comparing plumbers, it’s essential to make sure any company you hire is licensed and insured. Licensed plumbers have extensive knowledge about plumbing codes and regulations in Austin, Cedar Park, Georgetown, Pflugerville, San Marcos and other local communities. They are also fully qualified to install and repair a wide variety of plumbing systems in your home.

In Austin, plumbing license requirements are set by the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners. Plumbers also must register with the City of Austin. Many workers in the area are journeyman plumbers, a classification one step below master plumber.

Plumbers with a journey or master plumber license can service, repair, install, change and renovate plumbing. To check on a plumber’s license status, visit the Texas State Board of Plumbing Examiners website

Does plumbing work require a permit in Austin?

A local licensed plumber in Austin will let you know if you need a plumbing permit from the City of Austin Development Services Department. In Austin, permits are usually not required for repairing leaks, clearing stoppages or replacing fixtures. In other cases, a plumbing trade permit is necessary. Understand that when you use a plumber in Austin, they are responsible for obtaining any required permits. Don’t work with a contractor that asks you to obtain a permit yourself.

How to know if you have a water leak in Austin

If you have a water leak, it’s essential to find and resolve it quickly. Every passing moment wastes water and money, and leaks can cause mold damage or other problems. When you do find a leak, call a licensed Austin plumbing company to ensure the leak is repaired correctly. While inspecting a leak, a plumber may also find related problems.

Some telltale signs of a leak include dripping taps, unexplained puddles and rising water bills. However, some leaks are not as obvious and develop in walls, floors or service lines. Nearly half of all homes in the U.S. currently have a plumbing leak. Because most homes in Austin do not have crawl spaces or basements, houses in the area are more likely to have a hidden pipe leak beneath a concrete foundation.

How to use your water meter to check for suspected leaks:

  1. Stop using all water inside and outside your home
  2. Locate your water meter
  3. Take a reading at the meter
  4. After 30 minutes, recheck the meter

If the dial continues to move and the reading changes, you may have a leak. Contact a licensed plumber to diagnose the source of the water leak and make the necessary repairs.
