Wow. Very professional and prompt! Steve responded with a set price - very reasonable quote - almost immediately after I posted my job. He answered immediately to schedule a time and stayed in touch to let me know when he was in his way. He acted quickly to get the cleaning of my carport storage area done; Hauled items away, cleaned up and sprayed and it looks like new. He called me when it was done. Very impressed and will hire him for more jobs-Highly recommend him!!!

Jose showed up on time and ready to go. There was some miscommunication that led to a price increase but it was mutually understood by both parties and was fair and reasonable. Jose and his team did a great job and cleaned up the site afterwards. I would use again and recommend.

No need to look further. The drain clearing business has as many scams as the timeshare business if you are not careful. Edgar was straightforward (gave me a quote over the phone) and did not push me into the next tier of pricing when I told him I knew for sure it was going to take a 100' snake vs all other's traditional 75' snake. He said he'd grab the longer snake and be over, and there would be no charge if he could not fix it. He and partner came and fixed it in the dark after traditional hours for no extra charge. Cannot go wrong using him. I'll be calling him for any future plumbing needs.

Juan arrived on time and gave us a review of the issue which we believed to be a problem with the toilet. It turned out that there was a leak in the shower area that was actually causing the problem and we are now coordinating to have this project done in conjunction with replacement of some tiling. Juan was very professional in his explanation allowing us to understand what the problem was and how we needed to proceed. Definitely will be working with JEM Plumbing and Drain Cleaning again!

Izaak did a great job! He ended up being able to do the work the same day as the quote, helped us figure out a feasible and to code way to run a new drain for an outdoor utility sink with the least amount of old house drama, stucco, plaster, etc. Our old house gives every trade a run for their money, but all the work came out great and for a fantastic value. We had several quotes and his work was right in the middle price wise, very fair and you can't beat the turnaround time.

Chris came to install our garbage disposal and was actually 15 minutes early. Showed him where the new one was and the kitchen and he proceeded to switch them out. He replaced the old ring in the sink with the new one and connected up the new disposal. When he finished he said that he fixed the drain pipe also as it was not draining properly and tightened all the compression fitting as well that were loose, I like that. Cleaned up everything well and hauled off the old disposal. He was very polite, professional and definitely new his trade well. I finally found my go to plumber! Thank you Chris and Bob.

The pilot light on my water heater was not staying lit. Ruben assessed the problem quickly and was able to fix it by cleaning the burner area. Ruben was prompt and professional and offered great advice regarding our options on water heaters. I would definately call on All Time Plumbing again even though I thought he was a little pricey for this particular job. Thank you Ruben for your kindness, professionalism and courteous manner.

We had him come and paint two 42 foot long walls and he performed the task without any problems at all! The end product was perfect! He arrived early, listened to the details of the job, performed the tasks perfectly and the area was cleaned up when he left! Awesome experience!

Hugo came by on time in the morning and helped me repair the faucet very quickly and in good quality. He also pointed out that one of my other faucets is leaking a little bit but he didn't have a spare part. It doesn't seem to be a real problem for now. I will definitely call him next time.

I would highly recommend Juan's services. He kept in communication with me, was very friendly and knowledgeable and did an excellent job repairing the sub floor under my kitchen sink. The job was professionally finished and he completely cleaned the area after work was finished.

The drain cleaning work performed by Integrity Rooter & Plumbing SD, was excellent. Our kitchen drain was stopped up, and, in order to clean the line, the plumber first used a 50 electric snake. As this was insufficient to clear the line, he graduated to the 100' big gun snake which did the trick. Overall, a 10 out of 10! Highly recommended.

I hired Shawn to run a new copper water line for our fridge ice maker. The water source and fridge are on opposite sides so he had to go in the walls, up through the attic, and back down another wall. He also cut out some cracked and corroded pipe and replaced it with abs. He cleaned up after himself. Price was reasonable. Availability was good. Will probably hire him again later to do some other part of our remodel

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.
