How Much Does It Cost to Have a Plumber Come Out?

At Peppermint Plumbing, we believe in transparent pricing. The cost for a plumber to come to your Bulverde home can vary depending on the nature of the job, but we always provide upfront estimates before any work begins. Our focus is on delivering exceptional value and ensuring you’re completely satisfied with our services.

How Do I Know If I Have A Water Leak?

There are several signs that may indicate a water leak in your Bulverde home, including unexplained increases in your water bill, water stains on walls or ceilings, the sound of running water when all fixtures are turned off and low water pressure. If you suspect a leak, it’s essential to have it addressed promptly to prevent further damage.

How Often Should I Have My Drains Cleaned?

The frequency of drain cleaning can vary depending on factors such as household size and usage habits. As a general rule, it’s recommended to have your drains professionally cleaned once a year to prevent clogs and ensure proper flow. However, if you notice slow draining or recurring backups, it’s best to schedule a drain cleaning service sooner.

Can I Install A New Water Heater Myself?

While it’s possible to install a new water heater yourself, it’s generally not recommended unless you have extensive plumbing experience. Water heater installations involve complex plumbing and gas connections, as well as safety considerations. At Peppermint Plumbing, our licensed professionals can ensure your new water heater is installed correctly and safely in your Bulverde home.

How Do I Know If My Sewer Line Needs To Be Replaced?

Several signs may indicate that your sewer line needs replacement, including frequent backups, foul odors and visible cracks or damage to the line. Additionally, if your sewer line is made of older materials like clay or cast iron, it may be more prone to deterioration and in need of replacement. Our experts at Peppermint Plumbing can perform a thorough inspection and provide professional recommendations for your Bulverde home.
