Making the Right Choice

Hello everyone, Manny here from DrainPro Solutions! Today, I want to talk about something that affects us all at some point—choosing the right plumber. 

Whether you’re dealing with a dripping faucet, a major leak, or planning a big remodeling project, selecting the right plumbing professional is crucial. Not only does it ensure the job is done right, but it also saves you time, money, and a lot of headaches. So, let’s dive into some insider tips on how to spot a true professional and the red flags to watch out for.

What to Look for in a Professional Plumber

1. Proper Certification and Licensing First things first, always check for proper certification and licensing. In most states, plumbers need to be licensed to work legally. This ensures they have the necessary training and adhere to building codes. Don’t hesitate to ask for their license number and verify it with your local licensing board.

2. Experience and Specialization Experience matters in plumbing. An experienced plumber can diagnose problems quickly and efficiently, which translates to faster and often more cost-effective service. If you have specific needs like tankless water heater installation or sewer line repair, look for someone who specializes in those areas.

3. Good Reputation A reputable plumber usually has solid reviews and testimonials. Check their website, social media, and review sites like Yelp or Google Reviews. Don’t just look at the ratings—read the reviews to get a sense of their strengths and how they handle issues.

4. Insurance and Bonding Ensure your plumber is insured and bonded. This protects you in case of accidents or damage during the job. It’s a sign of professionalism and preparedness—qualities you want in anyone who works on your home.

5. Clear Estimates and Transparent Pricing A professional plumber should provide a clear, detailed estimate before starting work. This estimate should include the cost of labor, materials, and any potential additional charges. Beware of vague estimates or prices that seem too good to be true.

Key Questions to Ask

When you meet with a plumber, it’s your opportunity to vet them. Here are some crucial questions to ask:

  • How long have you been in business?
  • Can you provide references from previous clients?
  • What is your warranty or guarantee policy?
  • How do you handle unexpected complications?


Red Flags to Watch Out For

Even with the best research, you might encounter some warning signs. Here are a few red flags that suggest you might want to keep looking:

1. Requesting Full Payment Upfront Be cautious if a plumber asks for full payment before starting work. It’s standard practice to pay a deposit or for parts upfront, but paying the entire fee in advance can be risky.

2. Extremely Low Quotes If an estimate is significantly lower than others, it could be a sign of cutting corners or using inferior materials. It’s tempting, but it might cost you more in the long run.

3. Lack of Communication Good communication is key in any professional relationship. If a plumber doesn’t respond promptly to your calls or emails, or isn’t clear in their communication, it might indicate how they’ll handle the job.

4. High-Pressure Sales Tactics A professional plumber should provide advice and recommendations but should never pressure you into making a decision. High-pressure tactics are a definite red flag.

5. Unmarked Vehicles and Lack of Uniform While not always a dealbreaker, professional plumbers typically have marked vehicles and uniforms. This shows a level of professionalism and pride in their business.

What Our Customers Say

Drain Pro Solutions


I feel lucky that I came across Manny’s business when my old water heater started leaking and needed to be replaced quickly. Manny was super responsive, communicated everything and was priced fairly. He and Amir did a great job with the work and went above and beyond to take care of me. I also asked Manny about replacing my toilet and they completed that well too. I’ll be recommending them to friends and family for any plumbing needs.
-John Smith.
Very professional and reliable service provided in short notice. I called and Manny made available for me the same day. They came on time, did fantastic job in reasonable price. They keep work area covered and left with a clean site. Worked free on other minor repair- fixing the faucet (with no charge). I will recommend Drainpro Solution to anyone looking for a perfect and timely job.

Manny was prompt, described the situation to me, and quoted me a price. His work ethic exceeded my expectations. The work was not as involved as he first thought so he adjusted the amount of the bill accordingly. He did a great job. He was a personable, no-nonsense business man which we appreciated. I would hire him again. Also, he is bi-lingual which helps.

-Kathy R.
