Common Plumbing Problems in Sarasota
Every city comes with its unique residential plumbing challenges. Sarasota is no different.
We encounter and can repair all of the following issues and more:
Dripping faucets: A faucet drip can be incredibly annoying, but it can also cost you more than expected on your monthly water bill. If you’re not comfortable removing your faucet handles and tightening or replacing the parts causing the issue, it’s best to give our Sarasota plumbers a call.
Mold/mildew growth: Any plumbing leak can cause mold or mildew growth anywhere in your house, especially if that area is exposed to the humidity and heat of the Sarasota area. Mold can be dangerous to people with allergies and people with compromised immune systems, so its best to take care of leaks as soon as you notice they’re happening.
Broken toilets: Clogged and broken toilets are extremely common, especially with older toilets and older plumbing systems. Running toilets can sometimes be a DIY project if you’re comfortable handling the repair on your own. However, other issues require serious plumbing expertise, such as a clog in the main sewer line. Let us take a look to see what the problem is!
Leaking pipes: Leaking pipes might not seem like a huge issue, but they can cause immense problems if a plumber doesn’t repair them quickly. Not only can they increase the cost of your water bill, but they can also cause water damage, which is incredibly expensive to repair. If you suspect a leaking pipe, give our team a call as soon as possible.
Low water pressure: Low water pressure often happens with older plumbing systems, but there’s no need to suffer from a weak shower spray. If the water pressure is low throughout the home, you have a more significant issue at hand. However, if the low water pressure is happening in a single sink or shower, you might be able to repair it by cleaning or replacing your showerhead or faucet. If your low water pressure is caused by an old water heater, our team canrepair or replace it for you!

Leak Detection in Sarasota
Suspect you might have a leak? If you’ve noticed your water bill is higher than usual, your plumbing system might be leaking somewhere you can’t see it, such as in your walls or your main sewer line. One indication that you might have a sewage leak, in particular, is if you notice a patch of your yard looks greener than usual. An increase in moisture and organic material from your sewer line does wonders for your grass but is not good for your plumbing system or your wallet.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to detect a water leak?
The cost of water leak detection ranges from $147 to $212 or more, depending on how complicated the job is. Finding a leak in a small house is a lot easier than finding a leak in an apartment complex, for example. Additionally, fixing the leak is a different expense. Once you’ve found the culprit, repairing the damage can cost anywhere from $95 to $875, depending on the location of the leak, how long it will take to fix, and which plumbing company you choose. A slab leak repair tends to be more complicated than repairing a pipe under a bathroom sink. The best way to determine how much you’ll need to spend on a repair is to call and ask for an estimate. Our team at Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Sarasota provides estimates and flat-rate fees, so you’ll always know what to expect on your bill before we even begin.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater in Florida?
It can cost anywhere from $900 to $1,500 to install a water heater in Sarasota. The cost will vary depending on several factors, such as who you hire, the size and type of water heater, and whether the plumber charges by the hour. Typically, plumbers who charge by the hour will double or triple their normal hourly wage if your service is an emergency. For example, if they have to come to install a heater outside of normal business hours or during a holiday, you will be paying extra. Additionally, some water heaters will cost more to install if your existing plumbing system can’t handle the new unit. For example, switching from an electric water heater to a gas water heater might require the installation of special pipes that connect to your gas line, which will require more materials and time. If you are installing a new gas water heater to replace your old unit, that process will likely be much easier, and therefore, less expensive. Tankless water heaters have become much more popular, but they might be more expensive to install if your home’s electrical system isn’t strong enough to support it. Tankless water heaters typically use electricity to heat the water as you use it; if your electrical system is old, it might require an update before you can install this type of water heater. The best way to know how much you can expect to pay out of pocket for a new water heater is to discuss your options with a licensed and insured plumber in Sarasota. Our team can recommend specific brands and models for your situation.
How much does it cost to fix pipes?
The cost to fix pipes ranges from $50 to $375 depending on the extent of damage, the location of the pipe, and the plumber you hire to complete the repair. A good rule of thumb for plumbing repair cost is to determine how complicated and time-consuming the repair is likely to be. The longer it will take, the more you will have to pay for the cost of labor if you hire a plumber that charges by the hour. Additionally, plumbers will charge more if the pipe isn’t easily accessible. For example, if a plumber needs to knock down drywall or dig a trench in your yard to access the pipe, your expenses are likely to be higher.
