Hiring a plumber in Tampa

Tampa Skyline

When choosing a Tampa plumber, make sure to work with a professional who understands your type of property. Bungalows in Hyde Park built in the 1950s or earlier probably have copper piping prone to pinhole leaks. Sewer line failures are common in Tampa, and at some point you will need emergency plumbing repair or ongoing maintenance.

Tampa residents never have to worry about frozen pipes, but high temperatures and humidity cause problems for plumbing fixtures of all ages and materials. Water pressure issues are also common, and the City of Tampa has a webpage to help homeowners troubleshoot water pressure problems. A plumber in Tampa will know how to check your spigots, look for debris clogging aerator screens and take care of any other issues that may be causing low water pressure.

Some of the most common plumbing problems in Tampa neighborhoods include:

  • Rusting pipes and mineral build-up in aging pipes
  • Deterioration of pipes and drains due to not so great water quality
  • Drainage issues from flooding by tropical storms and heavy rain
  • Older homes in areas like Hyde Park, Ybor and Seminole Heights often require complete re-piping

Always work with professional plumbers who are licensed and bonded. In Florida, plumbers are required to have a contractor's license as well as workers' compensation insurance. You can check the standing of a Tampa plumber's license by referring to the Hillsborough County Contractor Licensing Reports.

In addition to being licensed and insured, find a plumber who takes emergency calls, provides estimates before work begins and identifies plumbing issues that may cause problems in the future.

For minor plumbing work, a permit is not required. However, for major projects that include replacement of plumbing fixtures, a permit is required from the City of Tampa. You or your Tampa plumber can apply for that permit through the City's Construction Services Division.

Depending on the job, you'll be charged a flat or an hourly rate for plumbing services in Tampa. Most professionals charge between $60 and $80 per hour, and you might also have to pay travel charges and emergency or after-hours surcharges. Many Tampa plumbers, including Roto-Rooter and Olin Plumbing, do not charge extra for emergency service or visits on holidays and weekends.
