Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do plumbers charge per hour?

Depending on the service you need (unclogging a drain, fixing a pipe, installing new pipes, etc.), plumbers charge anywhere from $45-$165 per hour. Plumbers often operate on a fixed rate model, too. Some won’t charge hourly rates because the variables involved in their work makes it less practical to do so. 

Plumbers will scope out the work, calculate the cost of parts, and roll it together with other fees to give you an estimate for the job. They may even offer standard flat rates for things like installing a toilet or a sink. Reach out to plumbers near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your project or repair.

Does a plumber need to enter my home?

A plumber will need to enter your home to fix plumbing issues like dripping faucets, clogged sinks or toilets and leaky pipes. They might not need to come into your home if the faulty appliance is located outdoors or in the garage. Before you begin the project, contact plumbers near you to find out they will need to enter your home.  

What do you do if you have a burst pipe?

First, switch off the water supply to reduce the water damage. You should also turn off the electricity for the part of your home that has sustained the leak, as it can be extremely dangerous if the water comes into contact with an electrical socket. Next, drain the remaining water from your faucets so it doesn’t freeze inside the pipes. 

Once you’ve done all of this, search for qualified plumbers in your area and ask them to provide you with a quote. 

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a plumber during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

What are the signs of a burst pipe?

If your water pressure has suddenly dropped or your sink and toilet have unexpectedly started clogging, you may have a burst pipe. Other tell-tale signs include watermarks on the wall of your bathroom or laundry room, drips or puddles in your home or basement, or water from your faucets that have suddenly turned brown. You may also notice a strange rotten-egg smell or the sound of gurgling water in your home.

If you notice any of these signs, contact a plumber near you to fix your pipes immediately.

How much does it cost to repair a broken pipe?

The national average cost to repair broken pipes ranges from $120 to $170. Prices can vary depending on the type of damage, whether the pipe is easily accessible, the materials needed and where the pipe is located. For example, an exposed pipe under the sink will likely cost much less than a pipeline in your yard that requires digging. 

Your overall cost will also depend on the hourly rate of the contractor. Most plumbers charge between $60 and $65 per hour for standard pipe repair, and up to $95 per hour for complex plumbing work. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s).

What happens when a water pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, the water can cause indoor flooding and damage your home. If the pipe is in an accessible location, you will likely notice puddles of water right away. However, if the pipe is underground or behind a wall, it may cause reduced water pressure, a sulfur smell or discolored water. All of this can cause significant (and expensive) damage, which is why you should always contact a plumber near you if you suspect your pipes are leaking.

Does insurance cover a broken pipe?

Sudden water damage may be included under most homeowners’ insurance policies, but it’s typically not covered if the damage could have been avoided with proper maintenance.

For example, if a pipe in your laundry room suddenly bursts and causes damage to the flooring and walls, that is usually covered by insurance. But if a pipe under your sink has been leaking for months and causes your wood floors to rot, your policy won’t cover that damage.

Always double-check with your insurance agent (or another expert)  to see what your policy covers.

How long is a water heater supposed to last?

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

  • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
  • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
  • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
  • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
  • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

Can a leaking pipe burst?

Yes. A leak in your pipe can build up pressure and wear through the material. Left unchecked, this pressure can cause the pipe to burst. This is why it’s so important to fix your pipes and contact a plumber as soon as you notice a leak — no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. 

Smaller leaks are easier and inexpensive to fix, saving you time and money in the long run. In addition, many insurance policies will not cover water damage for pipes that burst due to gradual leaks.

Jose was courteous and efficient. He cleared the drain quickly. He was especially forgiving since I gave him the wrong address which delayed his arrival. I would have Jose come back to do plumbing work again. I recommend him to future clients.

Ronnie and team replaced my kitchen faucet same day! He picked up the faucet of my choice at Home Depot and replaced it within 30 minutes. Wow. Just wow. You can't beat the price. I got several quotes from Thumbtack and Yelp, and nothing came close. Ronnie also responds quickly with the thousand questions I had. Ronnie is definitely my go-to for plumbing.

My husband and I are so happy to have found Wil (Nery) to help us deal with plumbing issues of our new-to-us house. It started with a kitchen sink leak that quickly escalated with a discovery of a clog. Our laundry sink was also backflowing for some unknown reason and he was very diligent in troubleshooting and resolving the issue. He helped us change out a faucet, which ended up being difficult because the old one was all rusted. He also changed out a laundry sink and removed an unused wall sink. What was meant to be semi-quick jobs that takes 2 days max became so much longer but Wil took it in stride and was so patient with everything unexpected that came up. He wouldn't take payment until the jobs were complete, which we felt so bad for because the job took so long and with so many visits, at no fault of Wil's. We definitely recommend Wil and will continue using him for any plumbing issues down the road (hopefully nothing for a long time!).

First things first, Stan who was the plumber who came out was amazing! He was 100% professional, friendly, clean, honest, and kept us in the loop the whole time. Buying an old house has a lot of downfall. The obvious being that plumbing was old and deteriorating. Stan had our pipes in both bathroom & kitchen in good condition by the time he was finished. This job was very, very difficult. He got it done and gave us advice on what to do to keep our pipes clean in the future. I will definitely use Mr. Rooter again if needed but will also refer them to friends but I will ask for Stan going forward. Thanks Stan!!

Marvin did a fantastic job! I initially had asked him to replace my faucet due to water pressure issues. When he came over he found out that he could resolve the issue without changing the faucet. I would have been able to just return the faucet and saved money by keeping my old faucet. I decided to move forward with the job since I felt that I was due for a kitchen sink refresh anyways. The point is though, I was so impressed with his honesty and willingness to lose some money, while saving me money. I would 100% recommend him and will definitely reach out to him again for all my future plumbing needs.
