For years people thought that hiring a plumber in Toronto was nothing more than making a phone call to another handy-man. They assumed that  when one person says he or she is a plumber then the title alone was reason enough to believe in their capabilities. The shoddy jobs done by most ‘professionals’ and the increase in complaints from many homeowners acted as an awakening to open many people’s eyes to see that plumbing is not just another job done by any ’so called’ plumber in Toronto. Hiring a plumber requires more than just research, it requires an interview with the professional in question and also proof that he understands what has to be done.

Ask For Recommendations

If you have never hired a plumber in Toronto before and you are wondering how to get the best one in such a large city, then knowing where to  look is the best starting point. Taking up the phone directory and calling as many as you can is not recommendable. When it comes to hiring plumber in Toronto the best solution is getting in touch with people that know plumbers and are able to give an accurate opinion about his or her professional approach. However, in a big city like Toronto, what other alternatives do you have?


For starters every plumber in Toronto should be licensed. Just because your next door neighbour was able to fix his or her leaking pipe does not mean that he or she  is now plumber of the year. There are courses that are being taught for people who are interested in being plumbers and after passing them they should make the necessary effort to get the relevant licence that is needed by every plumber in Toronto. The license acts as proof to show that they have attained the necessary skills to carry out their function. This important piece of document should not be overlooked with the aim of hiring the cheapest ‘professional’ that comes along.


A plumber in Toronto that is able to demonstrate years of experience in his or her profession  and a shining portfolio is the ideal candidate in a large city as Toronto. The more years of experience that the plumber has,  the more quickly it will be to find a solution to your plumbing needs. Plumbers that have years of experience usually have better rapport with their clients. Younger plumbers are usually trying to feel the waters and may take some time to develop a solution for your plumbing needs.

Determine Your Problem

Knowing exactly what you want and your specific problem is also crucial to make the right decision about which plumber in Toronto you will choose. People assume that all plumbers are the same, but this is not so. There are plumbers that specialize in different aspects of hydraulics and may not be able to work on your specific problem. This is because they have been trained with certain tools and materials that are different from your particular situation. Other tips to bear in mind when hiring a plumber in Toronto are:

 ·       Have  an interview to evaluate their working attitude and professional approach.

·       Have a clear understanding of ALL their charges (even the hidden ones)

·       Know which materials that have used before

·       Understand their solution for your plumbing needs.

How to Evaluate The Work Done by Toronto Plumbers

Many people make the mistake to assume that they do not need to verify the work that their contractor or  plumber has done. They know that someone walked in and out of their homes or businesses, but they are unaware of what was done and what the actual problem was. To protect yourself from paying twice to get the same problem fixed it is crucial to ensure that you verify everything that your plumber has done step by step.

1. Understand the Solution

Ask your Toronto plumber to guide you step by step as to what he or she plans to do to find a solution for your problem. Once you  understand the solution, then it will be easy to check what has been done against what he or she proposed to do. A noisy toilet for example can be fixed just by changing the float or replacing the flush valve instead of buying a whole new toilet.

2. Ask To See the Pieces That Have Been Changed

Once the plumber has changed out pieces that presented problem then ensure that you verify that the replacements have been made with new pieces and not just patches. While you do not want to seem like you are questioning everything that your Toronto plumber is saying you do want to ensure that the materials that you being billed for are in fact the ones you paid for.

3. Is the Problem Still There?

Before any Toronto plumber leaves after finishing his or her job always check to see that the  issue has been resolved. You should also ensure that no other problem appears due to one issue being fixed. If this happens then this means that the plumber did not provide the best solution for the problem. This will also save you from having to call another professional to fix what one has left behind.

4. Does Everything Seem To Be In Place

The only way to know that everything has been installed correctly is to fist look at the configuration of the pipes , faucets and tubes before they are changed. This way you will ensure that your Toronto  plumber installed everything correctly.
