Why Premium Plumbing Services Are Worth It

February 22nd, 2021

The biggest criticism our business ever receives with a grain of truth is that we charge more for plumbing services than other companies. Do we charge too much for jobs like drain cleaning, water heater services, or drain repair? That depends, because plumbing services are relative to each other. While other people might offer cheaper prices, you may not be getting as much out of their service as you do from ours.

Hiring a plumber in Tucson, AZ isn’t just about getting the job done quickly. There are many amateurs in our area who offer plumbing at a cheap price, but they’re people who you’d never want in your home—let alone working on your pipes. Many aren’t background checked, drug tested, or even proficient in the tools they’re using! This is the secret behind our fair pricing: premium plumbing is, in fact, worth it in the end.

We’re talking about the inside of your drains.

Now, we know what you’re thinking. They don’t need to be cleaned … they’re not clogged! And when they’re clogged I’ll just pour some
