The cost of common plumbing repairs

Most plumbers charge between $75 to $150 an hour, and the total cost of a repair varies based on how long it takes and the price of the parts needed for the repair. Some plumbing companies may charge a flat rate for certain services, such as fixing a clogged drain. You may also have to pay extra fees if you need same-day service or repairs made outside of regular business hours.

Portland plumbing FAQ

What can I do if my water heater starts to leak?
If possible, shut off the water and turn off the power supply to the water heater. To have this issue resolved, you’ll need to call a professional plumber to diagnose the source of the leak and make needed repairs.
Is 24/7 plumbing service available in Portland?
Yes. Several companies offer after-hours appointments and emergency servicing. You may have to pay an extra charge, however.
Why won’t my toilet stop running?
There are several reasons why a toilet may continuously run, including a leaky fill valve, an incorrect flapper chain length, a corroded toilet handle or build-up on the overflow valve. It’s important to let a professional verify the cause and correct the issue, which saves you money on your Portland water bill.
Why is there a foul sewage smell lingering in my home?
You’re more likely to experience the annoying issue of a foul smell in your home if you live in an older home in one of Portland’s historic districts. Common causes of this issue include backup in the city plumbing or a sump tramp that has dried out and isn’t working correctly. A professional plumber can diagnose and fix this issue quickly, so it’s best to call one as soon as possible to eliminate the odor and prevent illnesses.
