Kev did a good job putting in a new faucet and fixing a leaking tank. For both these jobs it took him 4 hours but he charged me for only 3 hours which I appreciated. I had got fixed prices quotes from master plumbers for both jobs for a similar amount. Kev isn't a master plumber but has enough experience to get the job done. This is why he charges a lower fee than master plumbers. The job did take longer than expected as our house is old and we encountered unexpected problems. Lev worked through them and got the job done.

This guy is the real deal. You can tell he has years of experience because of how good he is at improvising. He helped patched up a leak in the kitchen drain in just 20 mins. Made arrangements to get it done when two other plumbers flaked on us.

Harp and his team did great job in replacing my front door and insulating nest cam. He helped me replacing light fixture and power outlet. He also assembled wardrobe for me. He is professional and jack of all trade. I used his service twice. He is good plumber and electrician.

Jose completed top notch work for me. He was very fast with replies, was flexible on appointment hours, showed up right on time, and did great work. Plus he's super friendly! On the first visit, he did a thorough job checking out my garbage disposal to confirm its status. After that, he let me know the options about what could be done and did not do the hard sell that other plumbers might. He provided some recommendations about replacement disposals to buy and offered to return and install it for the remaining amount quoted. Very standup! We later set up a time to replace the garbage disposal and it all went off without a hitch. All through the process he explained what he was doing. After it was completed, I showed him my shower heads I was thinking about replacing and he explained how to do it on my own and some tricks. Everything was completed in the 1-hr time we discussed. All around great plumber and I'll definitely be calling on him (and his assistant) for future jobs!

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.

Ray did an awesome job installing or washer and dryer hookup. He was extremely communicative, clear and knew his craft. He arrived early each day and respected or home. We felt very secure about the work he was doing and there were no surprises. What I appreciated most was that he and his staff/ partners were diligent about protecting our property, covering them with tarps, etc to ensure or home was not dirtied with the work. All 3 service providers, from the plumbers to the drywall and electricians were top notch professionals who did quality work. I highly recommend Ray and his team.

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!

I had a clogged shower drain and Max sent two of his plumbers (Chris and Corey) the next business day to fix it. They were professional and courteous. Unfortunately, the issue was more severe than expected, but Chris found a workaround that will hopefully be less expensive. Some follow up work still needs to be done, but I'm hopeful that it won't be too involved.

Gustavo and his crew did excellent work. He was professional and prompt with communication. They were diligent with their work. After loading all of the dirt into the truck to be hauled, they cleaned up our property with a blower and left it looking very good. We would definitely recommend them and want to hire them in the future for projects.

Routine water heater swap - yeah right. What started out as thinking our water heater was broken, turned out to be a long overdue clogged sewer lateral. Worst case scenario. While I'm not that happy about the sewage overflow situation which could have been better mitigated (and we still need to beach the hell out of that room), the solutions and options offered by Ali were professional and spoke of his experience. To unclog the piping, snaking was attempted but failed, hydrojetting was attempted but failed (with a mess of sewage). Finally we got a camera down there to find a wall of something about 50 feet down from the mechanical room to a spot under the sidewalk. Digging 4 feet down, to find actually a pretty good condition clay lateral. Ali's man Valentino (a skilled gentleman), cut the clay and replaced it with a riser in order to install a cleanout for future maintenance. Once done, they hydrojetted for another hour to clear 7-8 months worth of waste. The camera was once again sent through to find that a portion of the clay lateral had shifted and created uneven surfaces including some penetration of tree roots. While most plumbers would probably recommending an immediate replacement, Ali recommended that since it wasn't fully collapsed, we should simply clear out the lateral as routine maintenance rather than spend all the money to replace the pipe. I appreciate his direct communication, no sales pitch, and brief coaching through the process. While I do have 10 yrs of construction experience, and his price was not the cheapest, he certainly delivered on time and without any sense of price gouging.

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.

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.

I had a Kitchen drain that was clogged. David responded, we agreed on a reasonable offer and he was out the next day to complete the job. He was kind, professional and on-time (even a couple of minutes early). He put down a plastic tarp around the work area and was very clean and cleaned up after himself. I was VERY pleased with his responsiveness and work overall, I would def call him for any future repairs. He hit every mark on what one expects from a service professional and I think you'd make a good choice going with him. I have had to hire a plumber at a previous residence and it cost twice as much for a similar job. Glad I found him!

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.

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.
