Frequently Asked Plumbing Questions

Here is a short list of the most common questions that people ask when we meet.

What is your hourly rate?

  • Simply Plumbing does not charge by the hour, we charge by the job and you will know how much we are charging for each job before we start any work. If the job takes longer than expected, you don’t have to pay for the extra time.

Do you charge for travel time?

  • Not within 20 miles of Carlsbad. Our primary service area is North County San Diego. (Carlsbad, Oceanside, Leucadia, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe)
  • If you give me a quote, will you ever exceed that price?

    Sometimes we will run into unusual situations after we start the job that may require additional work. We will always stop, inform you of the situation and complete another quote for any price changes. We will always present them to you for approval.

What is your normal response time?

  • As quick as possible. In some cases we can be onsite within 15-20 minutes! (Of course, traffic, weather or other unforeseen items can get in the way).
    For service calls that are scheduled during normal business hours, I can usually provide a 2 hour window.
