How to choose a plumber in Boise

Boise Skyline

The type of plumbing in your home depends on its age. Because Boise has a mix of new and old homes—and parts of the plumbing system may have been updated in an older home—it’s best to find a plumber that can handle old and new systems.

Older homes, like those in the North End built as early as the 1920s, require specific knowledge of older water heaters, copper piping and how to address pinhole leaks. Frozen pipes in both new and old houses are a common problem during the winter and will require different methods of thawing, depending on the age of the house and type of piping installed.

There are a number of issues that can occur in Boise homes regardless of the age of the fixture. Thermal expansion in your water heater can lead to high water pressure that damages fixtures and appliances. If your plumbing system hasn’t been properly maintained, you’ll have low water pressure from built-up debris clogging an aerator screen.

Boise homes will commonly see these plumbing problems:

  • Dripping faucets: This is the most common issue for Boise residents. A leaking faucet can drip away hundreds of gallons of water each year, adding up to an expensive water bill.
  • Slow draining sinks: In a kitchen, this can be caused by congealed fat and food remnants. In a bathroom, this is likely caused by knotted hair and soap.
  • Faulty water heater: When a shower suddenly goes cold, you likely have a problem with your water heater. This is best investigated by a plumber.
  • Low water pressure: Instead of a full steady flow of water coming from the sink, the water only trickles out of the spout. This is often caused by leaking pipes in older homes.
  • Leaking pipes: This may cause water damage to furniture and floors. For Boise, this can be caused from water pipes freezing and eventually bursting.

The cost of plumbing repairs varies by the job. Some companies charge flat fees for specific projects, and others may charge anywhere from $50 to $80 per hour, plus parts. Additional charges may apply for work that goes longer than the company’s normal working hours or emergency plumbing situations.

When searching for a Boise plumber, be sure they are licensed and bonded. According to the Idaho Division of Building Safety, plumbing practices must be in compliance with the Uniform Plumbing Code. This requires Boise plumbers to carry a contractor’s license and workers’ compensation insurance.
