Getting plumbers in Tucson

Tucson skyline

Plumbers in Tucson perform two types of work: basic/emergency repairs and new construction/remodeling. Basic and emergency repairs can range from a leak under the kitchen sink to a burst pipe in a hard-to-reach place. Construction and remodeling plumbing include projects that change the layout of the kitchen or bathroom.

Common Tucson plumbing issues include:

  • Low water pressure
  • Dripping faucets
  • Slow or clogged drains
  • Running toilets
  • Leaking or burst pipes

There are many historic districts in Tucson, such as in Armory Park, Barrio Anita and Barrio El Hoyo, that have homes built in the 1800s. These older homes have more plumbing issues than new homes with modern plumbing systems in neighborhoods like Dove Mountain and the Catalina Foothills area.

The cost of plumbing in Tucson

Plumbing costs in Tucson depend on the services you need. Prices can increase if more time is required to get the job done properly. Many licensed plumbers in Tucson charge $80 to $130 per hour for labor, plus the cost of parts.

Plumbing costs in Tucson
Average cost $237
Typical range $123 - $350
Low end $75
High end $700

Plumbers may also charge more for emergency service or repairs made outside of regular business hours, so ask about any additional fees that may increase the amount of your final bill.

Choosing a plumber in Tucson

Before hiring a plumbing company, make sure it’s licensed and insured. Arizona plumbers are required to obtain a plumbing/contractor license from the Arizona Registrar of Contractors, which requires passing two plumbing exams. Arizona plumbing contractors are also required by law to file for a contractor’s bond based on the type of license they receive: commercial or residential contract plumbing.

Contractors are not required to have insurance to get a plumbing license, but you should look for companies that have insurance so you know you are protected. The Arizona Registrar of Contractors also has tips for what to look for when hiring a plumber.

Professional plumbers need a permit before performing any work on pipes leading into the house. Minor repairs that you can do yourself do not require a permit.
