Common Plumbing Issues in Minneapolis
Some plumbing problems are universal no matter where you are, such as clogged toilets and slow drains. However, Minneapolis and St. Paul both share a prevalent plumbing issue—frozen pipes. Minneapolis gets an average of 52 inches of snow per year, 24-inches more than the national average. Our winter temperatures can get as low as 7 degrees, which is far below the freezing point of water. If Minneapolis residents don’t prepare their pipes for winter, you can bet they’re going to have frozen pipe issues as soon as that water begins to freeze and unfreeze.
What Causes Frozen Pipes?
One of the most interesting things about water is its ability to change shape depending on the temperature. If it gets hot enough, water turns to steam. If it gets cold enough, water turns to ice. However, the reason frozen water can damage your pipes is precisely because of this chemical process. As water freezes, its molecules solidify, which causes it to expand. While water in its liquid form can fit in your pipes just fine, when it freezes, it can cause your pipes to burst, no matter if your pipes are metal or plastic.
How Much Does It Cost to Repair a Pipe?
The cost of repairing frozen pipe damage varies depending on several factors, including the plumber you choose and the severity of the issue. For example, some plumbers charge by the hour while others charge a flat-rate fee based on the problem. Additionally, plumbers that charge by the hour can be more expensive, since they have a minimum-hour fee and can cost double or triple their average hourly amount if they have to repair the pipe after hours, on the weekend, or during a holiday. Last, the hourly rate of the plumber will increase with their experience. A journeyman will have a lower hourly fee than a master plumber.
Taking all that into account, the national average for repairing a pipe ranges between $49 to $3,000. Usually, the most expensive pipe repair happens if you need to replace your main water line, which is incredibly complicated and can take hours, if not days. The least costly pipe repair would probably be a small leak, which only requires a quick patch.
The best way to determine how much you’ll have to pay to fix your issue is to get an estimate from one of our Minneapolis plumbers.
