Common Plumbing Problems in Berkeley
Berkeley is a fairly old city, starting to grow before the Great San Francisco earthquake in 1906 and continuing to grow after 1909. The older your home or business looks, the more likely it is that you have a historical plumbing system. Cast iron pipe is hardy but only has a life expectancy of about 70 years. If you suspect you might have an older plumbing system, it might be wise to have a plumber inspect it for possible damage.
Other plumbing problems we fix often include the following:
- Low water pressure
- Clogged drains
- Slow drains
- Sewer system backups
- Sewer line repair
- Leaking pipes
- Broken water heaters

How Do You Know If Your Main Drain Is Clogged?
A problem that often pops up after heavy rainfall is a sewer system backup. Usually, you can tell your sewer system is the problem by checking the status of your drains throughout your property. If all of your drains are slower than usual, this likely indicates you have a clog in your main sewer line. Additionally, strange behavior with your water flow can also indicate an issue. For example, if you flush a toilet and water starts coming up the drain in your shower, you probably have a clog in your main drain.
Clogs in your main drain tend to be highly disruptive, so call us as soon as possible to clear the clog.
How Much Do Plumbers Usually Charge Per Hour?
The cost of plumbing service varies depending on location, time of day, and the experience of the plumber. On average, an hourly wage for a plumber ranges from $45 to $200. Typically, the more experience a plumber has, the more you should expect to pay for their knowledge and expertise. Additionally, you might have to pay double or even triple that amount if you require plumbing services after regular business hours or during a holiday. Further, some hourly plumbers charge a 2-hour minimum fee, meaning you will pay for two hours of service even if the repair only takes 45 minutes.
The alternative is selecting a plumber that charges a flat-rate fee, such as Mr. Rooter Plumbing in Berkeley. Our team never charges for overtime, even if our repair takes longer than we expect. We offer simple fees that won’t change, so you know what your final bill will look like before we even begin.
