Apprenticeship: A plumber apprentice studies under a journeyman or master plumber to learn the trade on the job as well as through coursework. Most apprenticeship programs are an average of 2,000 on-the-job hours and 246 classroom hours which takes 2-6 years to complete. The most common way to enter an apprenticeship is through a plumbers union. A great resource to find out about local apprenticeships is through the United Association. Another way is studying under a licensed plumber.

Plumbers may not go out of their way to let you know that a toilet or sink can be moved. But if you’ve been working with them on a renovation, and they tell you something can’t be transferred to a new space, ask them to explain to you in detail why not. Speaking of things people don’t want to tell you, here are 10 things your neighbor isn’t being up-front about.

We know that a well informed customer is a satisfied customer. This is why we put a priority on educating our customers on the situation at hand, rather than pushing a service on you without an explanation. When you work with us, you will receive an explanation of the problem and what we think is the best course of action. Of course, you will always receive options. If what we recommend does not fit with your current budget, we will present an alternate option to you. This means if a repair is more cost-effective, we will let you know and won’t try to get you to go for a replacement. By having options, you are able to make the best decision for you and your family. You can opt for long term peace of mind, or something more budget-friendly for the time being.You will never find hidden charges or fees on your bill - what we quote you upfront is what you pay, nothing more.

It’s a smell and a sight that no one wants to see in their home. If your home has a main sewer line backup, call the family-owned Houston plumbers with over 50 years of experience – John Moore Services. Our master plumbers will inspect your home’s plumbing system and examine the pipes from the inside out using cables and high-tech sewer line cameras to determine the cause and extent of the stoppage. No cookie-cutter fixes here. Each situation is unique, and the visual inspection of your line allows the John Moore team to determine the best possible fix for your specific issue. And with our upfront pricing, there will be no surprises. For sewer backups and main line clean outs, replacements and repair, you can count on our plumbing company in Houston.


Another way to avoid a service call from your plumber is to make sure the outside faucets are turned off in the winter and make sure you disconnect the outside hoses. You need to shut the water off from the inside. Then, open the valve on the outside to let the water that’s in there drain out—you switch both of them to the opposite direction so one is always closed and one is always open. We have to fix tons of these in the spring mostly because people leave their outside hoses connected and they freeze up. The repair could cost $100-$200 or more. Another tip would be if you’re going away for any length of time, like on vacation, turn off your water. If on any of those days the temperature drops below freezing, have someone check in on your house. I’ve been called to homes where the family returned from vacation, and there was water flooding out from the front door.
"Leak Chaser's Plumbing did a great job. I needed to get my new kitchen sink plumbing reconnected after getting new countertops installed and with an existing garbage disposal and new dishwasher. I thought that I could do it myself and save some money, but of course, I got in over my head. The charges were very reasonable and comparable to the other quotes. Nothing's free plumber's have to get their professional lincenses renewed annually at a costly fee like the rest of us in different professions. He was very professional and patience with me. I would recommend and hire them again. Shout out to the DIYers!"
Hello I had a plumber do an estimate for me to replace our copper pipes with plastic as we have no existing walls up in our basement yet...pretty basic job... so we figured we could upgrade as we do live in Northern Ontario and it does tend to get quite cold here in the winters.  We dont have any existing problems with our plumbing right now just figured it would be good time to do the job and perhaps change the pipes to 3 quarter inch for faster flow.  Well I never thought in all my life I would get an estimate back that would state $350.00 an hour in labor...yes that is correct $350.00 an hour...estimated 10 hours for the job to be completed.  So he quoted me $3500.00 for labor alone.. not supplies?  Well needless to say I will be happy with my half inch copper pipes and will happily wait for my bathtub to fill up at a slower pace.  Just wanted to know what your thoughts are on this $350.00 an hour quote?  Thank you and enjoy your day.

There’s often an Allen wrench that comes with the garbage disposal. I keep it under the sink. When the thing jams, follow the directions in the manual, and I won’t need to come out. Another plumbing tip, don’t believe the myth about putting lemon peels in the disposal to make it smell better. That will just make it jam faster.  These are the things you should never pour down the drain.
