Arisel did a great job. He arrived on time, finished the work quickly, prepping the area and cleaning up after himself and best of all he got the job done in less time that he estimated. Already arranged for some additional work.

We had a very slow shower drain. Jose was able to come within an hour and fixed it quickly. He even cleaned up our bathtub and the rate was very reasonable! Would definitely call him for our plumbing needs in the future. Thanks, Jose!

They came on time and were able to solve the issue of the tub drain not draining out. We actually had a hair catcher inbuilt in the tub but didn't know how to reach and clean it.

Oscar re-routed the drain for our washing machine, snaked our bathtub, and adjusted the temp on a shower. The drain ending up being a significant amount of work, but got the machine working as we had hoped and made life a whole lot easier for us (who wants to air dry laundry?). Oscar and his nephew were great to work with. Meticulous work, prompt, thorough, and gave us a very reasonable deal for the work done. Came back multiple times to get the job done right. He'll be the first person I call for future jobs.

Antonio was great. His prices are reasonable. He is very responsive, very professional, works very hard. He did great work. He removed my interior tankless hot water heater and I bought a new outdoor unit and he installed it. He also had my shower drain into a bucket outside with a sump pump in it with a garden hose - so I could use my shower water to water the grass. It works great.

Gleo communicated promptly and arrived promptly -- apparently a very hard thing to find these days in service professionals. He used the equipment carefully so as not to damage hard wood floors and quickly unclogged the drain. In addition he changed the tap for a nominal amount. The second issue was not fixable and he offered to replace it.

I had a water leak issue that was coming through my downstairs ceiling. Issue was due to a backed up shower drain line. Found Vyron on Thumbtack and he contacted that evening to set a time to come by an assess the job. I also needed base Board for the downstairs as well as reinstalling tile in 4 spots from a previous radiant floor heating leak. Vyron was right on time. His quote was very reasonable so I hired him. The time Vyron arranged to begin my repairs was again, right on time. He immediately began his work with a crew. He unclogged the shower drain, removed the damaged drywall and reinstalled new drywall. Installed all the base board and reinstalled the tile. He quoted a time frame of 6-8 hours. He completed everything in 7 hours. He and his crew were very clean and organized. Vyron is professional and friendly. I highly recommend Vyron Salinas. Thanks Brett Larson

Gustavo was prompt and very thorough. I had him do clean up and hauling away yard debris, planting, fix plumbing and electrical, etc. It was a 2 day job and he and his team did great. I'm hiring him back next week for other related projects and I guess re-hiring someone without reservation is the ultimate compliment.

Noel is such a professional. He was recommended to us by our neighbor when we had a fencing need. We have used his services twice so far. The first time to helped us re-support a leaning fence. The second time, another fence was so rotted from all the water collected in the beam that we needed to have to replaced. He did an excellent job and even suggested that if we wanted to have more wear from the fence that he could put some cement support around all the existing posts so that it would last longer. That will save us money in the long run and I knew that he wasn't all about making the most money but he was about keeping my best interest and dollar in mind.

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!

Mike did a great job tackling a very tough drain clogging situation with our kitchen sink drain at our house. After the typical "pipe snaking" approach did not work as the clog was way further than anticipated, Mike drove us through the different steps to resolution. Mike worked late at night and early in the morning to accommodate our timeline and schedule. Mike always explained what he was going to do and why, which I really appreciated. Finally, when we had to make bigger decision to fix the clogging for good, Mike worked with us to keep the budget low. Again very appreciated. Mike is a true professional, very easy to work with. Many thanks.

Amir showed up promptly, and was able to complete the work in the amount of time he projected. They did a very professional job installing LED ceiling lights and hooking it up to a dimmer switch. They put down drop cloths and moved all of the furniture and cleaned everything up after they were finished. They were very professional, and communicated very well. If there were any questions about the job, they asked me and were able to work around some complexities with the wiring. I would definitely recommend them highly.

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.
