How much does a plumber charge per hour?
If you were to divide the estimated cost by the estimated hours to complete the job, on average, a plumber charges an hourly rate of $70 to $120 per hour, including service and inspection fees.
Professional plumbers typically do not charge on a per hour basis. Plumbing jobs vary on difficulty and severity, therefore charging on a per hour basis is not too common.
Most plumbers will view the work and provide you with a flat rate quote that includes any fees, labor, and parts needed to complete the job right.
Your home is one of your biggest investments, we recommend you do some research on the plumber you hire. Keep in mind that fees include insurance premiums, union dues, equipment, and vehicles.
Weekends, holidays or after-hour plumbing calls will typically cost more than regular business hour requests. The average trip fee, if they charge one range between $100 to $350. Plumber hourly rates can range between $70 to $400 per hour.
How much does a plumber charge to unclog a toilet?
On average, the cost to hire a plumber to unclog a toilet is $100 to $250. Keep in mind that each case can vary in how severe the clog is. If your toilet is badly clogged, a plumber might need to dismantle the toilet and snake the drain. In some cases, pipes might need to be replaced.
A proper toilet installation should take 1 to 2 hours.
This is not a very difficult task, there are plenty of videos on how to do it. But, of course, after many years of experience, we’ve seen it all! Many times homeowners break the toilet while installing it or fail to properly seal it.

On average the cost will range between $100 to $250. The cost to unclog a drain will really depend on local labor cost and the type of clog you have going on.

While some products indicate that they are flushable, we often find these very same products getting stuck in the drain pipes.
