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. 

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.

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.

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).

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.

I sen t an inquiry via Thumbtack and AM Plumbing & More responded right away. Tony did an amazing job replacing my traditional water heater with a tankless water heater. Tony removed the old water heater and cleaned up afterward.

Moises came out for an estimate, he gave me some options of what I could do and looked for ways to save me money. Moises later performed the kitchen plumbing work (installing a faucet, garbage disposal, gas line, refrigerator water line). All the work was done quickly and professionally, Moises agreed to follow up should I have any problems. I would certainly hire Moises again.

Marc saved us at 10pm at night - our kitchen sink/dishwasher wer backing up, and they share the same sewer line as the bathtub on the second floor. Once I took a bath my wife told me that the kitchen was raining, and water was all in the cabinets. Marc was able to come and work until midnight unclogging two sewer drains, and diagnosed why the bathtub was leaking. He told me that I could attempt to repair the bathtub plumbing on my own since i'm pretty handy, or he could come back and do it. Super reliable

This was my first time using Thumbtack. I have had terrible experiences with 3 contractors in the past, so I was a little hesitant in using someone from an online service. I had a bathtub faucet leak that seemed to have gotten worse from the day before. I communicated with Juan that night and he came out the next morning. Juan is very knowledgeable and was able to explain to me what needed to be done in a way that I could understand. He completed the work in about 2 hours (that included going to purchase the needed parts) and cleaned up as well. He took a look at my sprinkler system on his way out; wow! I will definitely use Juan Moreno Plumbing again and would highly recommend him to anyone who asks. I'll post again once the sprinkler system is repaired.

Tony is one of those exceptional human beings that you only come across every so often in life. From the first moment he arrived on the property and he let my daughter follow him around using his flashlight I knew we would hire him. He did a thorough investigation into our plumbing issue, more so than any of the other plumbers, and gave us so much honest information (trust me, we got many quotes and many people lied to us!) He was immediately available several months later when we contacted him to set up our appliances, even when we kept changing the start date. He is so knowledgeable and easy to work with. He is willing to take on any problem and never complains. We worked with many sub-contractors on this project and it is a difficult thing to find! Our family is so grateful to him for helping us complete our rental unit so quickly and that everything looks beautiful and is working perfectly. Thank you, Tony!!!
