Does Scott's Plumbing offer free estimates?

Plumbing costs are often times difficult to estimate as some of the work needed may be hidden in walls or underground. However, we will do our best to provide you a range of costs based on our extensive home repair experience.


We will provide a detailed estimate that you can rely on if you are willing to pay for an on-site service call. If you choose us to do the work, we won’t charge another service call fee for the next visit.


Contact us at 865-687-2686 and one of our service representatives will be happy to provide you with an economical cost estimate. Your total satisfaction is our primary objective.

Should I invest in a tankless water heater?

Although tankless water heaters can provide advantages over conventional tankless water heaters, there are some factors that should be considered.


  • You will spend more money on the purchase of a tankless system and installation costs will be high if you are not already properly set up. Retrofitting in many situations can cause the costs to exceed the expected benefit.

  • The mineral content, or hardness, in your water precipitates out in the heater coil and can cause clogging, reduced efficiency, increased maintenance, and premature failure.
