Finding an emergency plumber

Whether it’s burst pipes, emergency leaks or a broken heating system, plumbing emergencies can be stressful and costly for homeowners. If you need an emergency plumber quickly, you might be worried about how much it is going to cost you, especially if it’s at an unsociable hour or a big job. However, it’s essential that you call an experienced local plumber straight away to prevent further damage and fix your plumbing issue as soon as possible. We take a look at how much an emergency plumber costs and what could affect the price you are charged.

What affects the cost of an emergency plumber?

There are a few different factors that affect the amount you might have to pay for an emergency plumber. One of these is if the call is during weekends, evenings or holidays as you may have to pay more during these times. It’s also important to bear in mind that the price of an emergency plumber will vary based on the task at hand. If you have a large commercial plumbing project, you can expect to pay more than if you just need a drain unblocked at home. You could also have to pay more if the situation is dangerous or harmful and they need to take extra safety precautions or get another member of the team to help.

Emergency plumbing costs

Depending on where you live in Australia and what the job is, you should budget around $100 to $150 per hour for an emergency plumber’s services. Your plumber should be able to tell you upfront how much the job will cost. Most plumbers will charge a call-out fee for your emergency plumbing job and then charge by the hour. You can usually expect to pay around $100 to $250 as a call-out charge for a plumber and this will increase if it is outside normal working hours. Plumber’s call-out fees cover the time, transport, equipment and materials they will use. If you live further away from the plumber you may have to pay a higher call-out fee for the time taken to get to your plumbing emergency.
