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 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.

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.

Everything about Sergio of Kecko Plumbing is 5 stars or more. I hired him to replace a kitchen touch faucet with a moen faucet, reinstall a garbage disposal, replace under sink valves in guest bath and replace original guest faucet with a new one. I love his attention to detail and getting it right. He is definitely on my recommend to everybody and hire again list.

Jason responded promptly. I sent him pictures of what I needed handled and he quickly responded with a quality and fair quote. He arrived the next day and handle the job like a professional. Even explained to me what he was doing with a level of know how that let me know he had it handled. Will definitely be hiring him in the future for any other plumbing needs.

Canyon Hills Plumbing has helped with installing a water heater & clearing blockage in our main sewer line. Both times they were quick in replying to our requests, arrived within the block of scheduled service time (next day & same day), friendly, & adhering to Covid-19 guidelines. Price wise no complaints, I believe they’re aligned with the great service they provide & and competitive to others. I fully recommend them!

Mr. Thor showed up exactly on time, analyzed the problem, and replaced the broken toilet in about 2 hours. He was clean, thorough, and without a trace of him being there. He was careful not to leave a mess. He evan vacuumed out the water in the tank and bowel with his wet/dry shop vacuum. I chose him because he was up front about his prices. Others refused to give estimates. I recommend Precision Drain Cleaners for any plumbing needs.

Bruce is amazing ! He came right when he called , he quoted us a fair and reasonable price and most importantly he got the job done . The quartz that I had cut wasn’t properly cut to fit the kitchen sink that I wanted but Bruce made a way out of no way to ensure that I had a properly working sink. Despite the obstacles , he didn’t divert from his original quoted price. He is passionate , a perfectionist , professional and hard working . We will be using him for any and all future plumbing needs.

This is not intended to be a bad review. It is an honest one. Brandon was excellent! He was friendly and personable. I have nothing negative to say about him or the service he rendered and I thank him. He represented his company in a positive and good light and does credit to his employer. As far as the value is concerned? I believe the price given was misleading. Usually the word "total" when used with the words, "$89 total price," denotes what it says and implies actual value regardless of any further writings otherwise it is pointless to make the assertion unless it was intended to entice. Had I known it would double in price when he arrived, I would have checked with other plumbers for a better price. Given the $89 minimum service charge, I could not see me paying him to leave and get someone else for less. I look at it from a simple viewpoint: it took 38 minutes to clear a blockage some 4 feet away or so. That cost me $175 and that was with a $40 discount for being a new customer. So, the misleading $89 total amount should have read "$215 for previous customers. Or, if you are a new customer, $40 off of that $215 price. I would have bypassed that offer and gone with the one in Murrieta who told me he would unclog any drain for $85. I thought choosing a company closer to my locale (Lake Elsinore) for only $4 more was a better idea at the time only because of distance and time. However, the offer was false and misleading and I fell for it. Now, don't get me wrong. The service quality was excellent! It was the false advertising which hooked me and trapped me that I take exception. Would I use their services for my home again? Probably not even though they are very good at what they do. They are simply way too expensive and I don't like being deceived. I just know that the same services can be had for far less with many other plumbing companies.
