David Gomes was a life-saver! Another service provider that was crawling under our deck broke a PVC pipe and water was pouring out. We had to shut down the water to the house. My wife was busy calling plumbers. David responded almost immediately to the bid request. His price was quite fair and he drove up during rush hour. He fixed the leak in a most creative way, as there was no local hardware store open. His ingenuity allowed us to turn the water back on less than 3 hours after the break occurred. I would certainly use David again.

Our new rental home warranty plumbing coverage does not include tile work, but the plumber they dispatched needs a bigger opening behind the mixer on the tile shower wall to confirm the source of the leak. I hired Arisel from AA Cardenas Construction to help me with the tile work. I would have hired him for the plumbing work itself if I had known him earlier and had got to choose my own technician under warranty. From the get-go responding to my Thumbtack request for quote to finishing the job, Arisel had been very responsive, professional, friendly, punctual and helpful. The job was beautifully done! While I was writing the check, knowing the job is being contracted to Home Warranty company Arisel still took the initiative to inspect the leak checking the ceiling downstairs and share with me what he thought the problem might be. With him pointing out, I was convinced that he was spot on! Arisel is apparently a hard working, honest and friendly young man! I will definitely hire him again for future jobs. I highly recommend Arisel.

Jose did excellent work, and for by far the best price! I got two other quotes to replace my garbage disposal + p trap pipes, and Jose's price was half that of the others. He's an honest guy - unlike the other plumbers, he didn't overcharge me for the parts (he even showed me the original receipt). On top of all of that, he was responsive to my messages, showed up right on time and was very professional. He answered all of my questions, and even taught me how to reset/repair the garbage disposal for the future. No doubt I'll be using him for all of my future plumbing needs.

Hi was friendly, helpful, fast and showed up exactly on time. Contrary to many plumbers I've dealt with, he didn't try to push me into spending lots of money. Instead, he recommended solutions that saved me money, even if that meant less profit for him.

Toby came today to help us with the plumbing problem that we were having. He was very helpful and very professional he did the job and was very reasonable I’m sure he save us a lot of money compared to most plumbers. He was very nice and I definitely think I would hire them back for more than just plumbing work I think I got myself a new handyman to come help us with things that we need to get done around this house.

My newly installed water heater stopped pumping hot water on a late Saturday afternoon. I panicked as we have young children in the house and needed the problem fixed immediately. No plumber was available to come in the same day on short notice. I contacted Byron and within less than an hour he was at my house and was able to fix the problem. He was very professional and explained what the issues were. Byron saved us from disastrous weekend without hot water!

Max is AWESOME! We'd been having problems with our water heater for MONTHS, and four other plumbers had tried to fix it and failed (although of course they all still had to be paid ...) Max responded immediately to my request for quote; he came out to the house the next day, was 100% competent and businesslike, got the parts ordered, followed up on scheduling for the install, and two business days later THE PROBLEM IS FIXED -- at last! Highly recommend him. THANK YOU MAX!!!!!

Gusanito was quick to respond to our request with a very competive quote. The following morning, his team showed up, did a fantastic job, and we are very happy with the results. We will use him again. He's a great guy.

These guys are great but they are a big company and therefore you are going to pay big company prices. They came out the same day to help us with our plumbing issue and took care of it quickly and efficiently. Additionally, I spoke with two dispatchers and two plumbers and all of them were incredibly professional and polite. If you have an emergency and need a plumber asap, I highly recommend Mr. Rooter.

After talking to other plumbers about repairing our kitchen pipes I had a good feeling when Ganzo came to our house to check out the job. He went into the attic at least twice to measure and survey the situation, the other guys didn't even get on the ladder to look. He was very methodical and took his time figuring out exactly what was needed. Ganzo and his son came on time with all the material and tools necessary. After the piping was completed we found that the facet was also bad. They went out of the scope of the job and installed a new facet too. We had a great experience, on time and on budget. Next time my neighbors or friends ask if I know a Plumber I will say absolutely.

Sometimes you get lucky. We did when Stephen responded to our weekend post for a plumber on thumbtack. We had lost a pvc pipe connected to our roof's drain. The weather forecast was for rain the following day. As other reviews note, Stephen was on time and quickly addressed our needs. He had the situation fixed in under two hours with highly competent workmanship. It did rain the next day and the roof drain was working just. fine. Thanks Stephen!

David is incredibly nice and easy to work with. He arrived on time, and quickly assessed the situation and fixed it promptly. He is friendly and provides good value as well. I had a previous plumber attempt to address the same issue and was unable to solve the problem, but David did. I'd hire him again without reservation.

My job with Cory and Ray turned out to be an unexpected challenge, and it required them to go beyond your average plumber's skillset, using a variety of tools to remove my old sink and put in the new one. It took a while to figure out the right solution, but they stuck with it and were professional and communicative throughout. The quality of the work was very good, and they were clean and neat, friendly, knowledgeable.

TL;DR: Valentino was excellent, and I'd hire him again in a heartbeat. I had some hesitations about hiring a plumber, after all the stories I've heard about plumbers charging exorbitant prices. For my disconnected kitchen sink pipe, a couple plumbers quoted me very high prices. When I came to Valentino, he charged me a fair price that was much less than the other two quotes. And moreover, he came on time and got the job (which actually wasn't so simple) done well. Super nice, super professional, and super honest. Hands down, I'd hire him again, and would recommend him to my friends.

The most professional and knowledgeable plumber I’ve ever hired! Dom came over to install a simple water heater, what happened next was out of the playbooks. The pipes burst, the tubing was incorrect, and Dom handled it like a true pro and stayed here for hours on a Saturday. One of the most amazing human beings I’ve met in a very long time, if you need to hire a true professional that you could trust.Dom is the man for you! Also, he went above and beyond with fixing little repairs that he was witnessing as he was doing his job. A true professional from top to bottom.

I have a relatively complex radiant heating system with a circulating hot water system as well. The work I needed done was some straightforward plumbing but all plumbers I'd reached out to turned me down due to the radiant system. Clay and Mark replied straight away and came as soon a they could. Not only were they unfazed by the system, they fixed my problem, showed me how I could have done it and then stuck around to make sure all the components were working correctly. They were professional, helpful and did excellent work. I will definitely use them again.

He did not go a penny over the estimate ; he installed a new water heater hauled the old one away. Quick and clean. Remarkable!! Highly recommend him. Will definitely use his services again.

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.
