Even though he could not unclog the drain he worked very hard and, in my opinion, went above and beyond to try to do the job. I would definitely recommend working with Sergio. He was very nice and helpful.

Tony quoted a very reasonable price and showed up on time. He spent nearly an hour diagnosing and fixing my clogged drain. He didn't pressure me into more expensive fixes and offered suggestions for future solutions. I will call him again with any other plumbing issues that arise.

We had a much better than expected experience with Alan Ramirez' Plumbing. Mr. Ramirez made himself available and arrived sooner than expected on a Sunday of a long weekend. Accompanied by a helper, he had all the tools and seamlessly completed repairs, which included unclogging the kitchen drain. He then asked to be walked through the house, to check showers and discovered another water stoppage. This one proved to take longer and yet he stuck to his quote and only charged for one visit. His price was so much less than what was quoted by other services that it only seemed fair to pay him double of what he quoted. Integrity and professionalism do pay off and we can only regret that we had not used Mr. Ramirez before. Now, how do you spell 'relief'?

Contacted Elite contractors for an air conditioning repair. Our air-conditioning started leaking a couple days ago because of the crazy heat. Called them Monday, and they were able to send out a tech same day in the evening but worked better with my schedule for the following day. They came promptly at 10 am as promised. Profession, and polite. He fixed the clogged drain pipe and replaced the vent filter ( something I didn’t know needed maintained regularly. Can’t believe I was breathing that!!! ) great service. Will definitely be using them again.

Accurate Service Co responded immediately to my clogged drain problem in a branch sewer line. They arrived within three hours, provided a professional service, and resolved the issue during the first visit for the price initially quoted. I was so please with their service I asked Norman for additional business cards to pass on to my friends and business colleagues. When my problem arose I checked out Mike Diamond "the smell good plumber" and decided not to use them when I notice a Yelp rating of 1.5 out of 5. I very pleased I found Norman at Accurate Service Co.

Jesus was very tentative and professional :) A really nice guy too! There was another handyman that first reached out to me on Thumbtack and promised to stop by. But that first guy never showed up and did not respond to any of my emails as if nothing was scheduled or he no longer exists. Jesus was the one who responded right away and even showed up the same day I gave him our warehouse address. Amazing! I definitely do recommend him! He first checked out the pipe drain then later gave us feedback on what was wrong and gave a fair estimate. I thought this process would take a few days but him and his team fixed our clogged pipe within few hours. Not even half a day. Very grateful for his work: fast and good quality. Now I know who to contact for future needs in plumbing, electricity, etc. Thank you Jesus!

We had a great experience with Jim. He showed up on time and very friendly. He was very focused when he was working and fixed our forever clogged drain quickly. In addition, Jim also fixed the sink stopper (I think that's how it called) for us. He told us some basic knowledge of the system and let us know what to expect in the long run since we have a 60 year old house. His cost was very reasonable without any hidden charge. We would definitely hire him again.

Moises was absolutely great at communicating with me throughout our plumbing issues with the bathrooms. He was able to come over around the time he had suggested he was available for and made sure to inspect both our bathroom pipes. We thought it was a simple issue but it turns out that out main base drain was clogged up and he identified that when he found it. Moises was professional and knowledgeable about the whole situation as he told me it was easily solved by using his machine to snake and unclog the drain. Without it, the whole house would've been affected throughout the other pipes like the kitchen sink and laundry machines. He also provided pictures when I wasn't on the premise to ensure what he was working with. Would hire him again if any other issues come up in the future! :)

I called Clyde. He came in less than one hour. He checked out a leak that was soaking our family room carpet, located the problem and gave me an estimate for the repair. The next morning he came, removed water soaked wall board, broke concrete to expose the damaged drain pipe, removed the crumbling and leaking cast iron trap and pipe, replaced with ABS pipe, snaked line to clean out debris, patched concrete, cleaned up, and we're good to go. Oh yes, he also unclogged a stopped up bath tub drain and fixed the catch on a door (all for the original estimate). We are completely satisfied.

American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.

Jose came out with short notice and completed the job of unclogging the kitchen sink, which ended up not being easy. I highly recommend his services for any plumbing related job. Also his pricing is very fair and competitive.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

How do you find a good plumber?

Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

  • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
  • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
  • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.
