How Much Does a Plumber in Sydney Cost?

Plumber in Sydney

When you’re on the market for a plumber, there are a number of services listed that will make the enticing offer of a discount if you call them over the other hordes of plumber in Sydney. On initial thought, it’s definitely tempting to take the offer up, but what you have to keep in mind is that, often, these discounts are generally just for the cost of the call-out and are hardly a saving when you take into account the extra charges that will pile up once the service actually begins.

Say you have a blocked drain. Your plumber will have to do one, more, or all of the following tasks:

  • Locate the blockage
  • Jet-blast it
  • Examine the extent of any further damage using CCTV
  • Possibly mend any cracks or breaks with pipe relining

The costs add up fast and before long, that 10% discount becomes kind of redundant. So what can you do? Turn to a reliable plumber that is up-front about their prices before the dollars stack up without your knowledge. At GF James, honesty is truly our best policy. If you’re experiencing problems with your plumbing system, contact us with the details – you’re welcome to email us photos, too! – and using that knowledge, we’ll be able to give you a rough idea of what the issue is and a fixed price quote so that you have time to mull over your choices before you commit.

Don’t get dazzled by the discounts when it comes to getting a plumbing service – it will more than likely leave you much more out-of-pocket than you were expecting and with a less-than-quality service as a result.
