Bruce is the BEST! 3 other plumbers stood me up but Bruce went the extra mile. Not only did I hire him for the repair I needed, I was able to have him address other repairs. Thank you Bruce!!

Manny was very responsive and he completed the job that 2 other plumbers said they could not do. Manny arrived within an hour and he was very reasonably priced. I will call him again next time I need help. I highly recommend him.

My water heater was out of hot water last week. I have called at least 5 plumbers, all of them suggested not worth to fix it and need to install new furnace. it will cost me more money to buy new one. I have contacted Juan and he came to my house next day with the parts he bought and he fixed water heater immediately. I highly recommend him. He is very efficient and experienced and honest guy.

I hired Frank to unclog my kitchen sink, which turns out needed a new garbage disposal. Total was around $230. I don't have experience with other plumbers so I'm not sure if his rates are on par, but I recommend him because he is ultra-responsive, fast and professional with his work. He responded to my inquiries within 10 minutes. When it turned out I needed a new garbage disposal he went right out to get one - no separate appt. The job from arrival to finish took about 1.5 hours. He even wiped up the floor when he was done.

I hired Allen because he had the best reviews of all other plumbers and his price seemed reasonable. After the job he did, I have him on my contacts and for now on he will be my plumber for anything I need. He is honest and very helpful. Better that expected and I expected great after the reviews. Now I know why people took the time to write a positive review.

I would recommend MJ Plumbing for any plumbing job! I was given a good price, the work was quality, there were no issues, and they were professional! MJ Plumbing was one of the few plumbers who even gave me a quote, and his quote was the lowest! He was very responsive to messages on Thumbtack and very responsive to text messages. The MJ Plumbing team was also punctual and professional. The 2 gentlemen arrived early and they were ready to work. They had all the necessary tools and they were familiar with my issue. Once in my apartment, they asked me a few questions and immediately got to work. It only took them 20 minutes to fix my issues, I was very nervous that I had royally messed up, but the guys were able to fix everything. Once they were done in my bathroom they put everything back and cleaned up after themselves. Once the job was over, there was no issue with payment. When I booked the appointment, we discuss payment method. Once the job was completed, I paid him what was quoted and there were no issues. I am always nervous to hire workers because there are so many horror stories of things not working out, but this was the best possible situation. I would recommend MJ Plumbing to anyone who needs work done. I'm sure I will have future plumbing needs, so I will definitely be calling him up!

As a contractor I'm particular about other contractors. I've also had a number of plumbers out to the house and have never called the same one back twice. Anthony will be the first I will call back. Super nice guy, prompt, and easy to contact. The price was also equal to or better than the other plumbers I've called. He got to the house and had the drain unclogged in no time. This is after I used my own snake, then went out and rented a 50' electric snake from Home Depot, spent hours on the drain, and finally gave up and called Anthony. I would highly recommend him for your drainage, hot water heater, most of your plumbing needs.

I searched around for estimates to replace my tankless water heaater and was surprised by Greg's estimate. I realized the other guys were crooks. Greg is one of the few honest plumbers who has integrity and knows his craft very very well. I highly recommend him for his knowledge, honesty and value for his work. A plumber like Greg is hard to find.

I can’t say enough good things about James. He gave me a great deal on the job he did and the price was much lower than most other quotes from other plumbers. He completed the job very quickly and was very thorough. He even took the time to explain what the issue was and how to prevent it in the future. He showed me how to use the new equipment he installed. I would definitely use James again I would put my recommendation out for him for any kind of plumbing work needed.

We called Prudential Plumbing for an annoying issue with a recurring backed-up shower drain. We had two other plumbers look at the problem and they insisted on replacing the main line–under the house and in our front yard as well. High price quotes given by the other plumbers caused us to seek a third opinion from Prudential. Mark from Prudential investigated the problem and assured us it was not the main line. Prudential replaced our “shower drain and common section with laundry drain line” at a fraction of the price quoted by plumbers x and y–we were very glad we did not use them. Our shower has worked nicely ever since–we saved thousands of dollars–Mark was efficient and cordial. Prudential Plumbing has earned nothing less than our recommendation and five stars

The sink, toilet, and shower in one of my bathrooms was completely clogged. I tried plunging the toilet and snaking through the shower, the toilet, and the clean out behind the toilet with my 15 foot snake. No luck. Next step was to either rent a larger snake from Home Depot or call an expert. No need for the $99 "smell good plumbers" here. Jose's price to unclog my drain was not only well below those guys, but it wasn't much more than what I'd have paid to rent a snake from Home Depot. Also, Jose didn't come with any of the fine print mentioned briefly mentioned in the smell good plumber radio ads (which I read and found out they would not clear a clog by going through a roof vent or a clear out that is inside the house). Jose was prepared to do either, if necessary, but he started at the easiest method and worked his way up until the clog was cleared. He started with a small 35 foot snake through the shower. When that didn't clear the clog he went in with his camera through the clear out behind the toilet. That camera saw the clog a little over 50 feet in (my recollection is that's about the length of the Home Depot rental snake, so my money would have been wasted had I rented one). He was able to push through it with the camera and clear it out. No need for him to have brought in the heavier equipment (which he had and was prepared to use). My appointment was for between 9-10AM and he arrived just a few minutes after 9AM. Very friendly, knowledgeable, clean, punctual, and got the job done quickly. I checked all the boxes for him. Great job!

On Sunday afternoon, our tub and sink suddenly clogged up and was giving off a horrible odor. After calling countless plumbers who were either unavailable on Sundays or charged Double the premium, I was lucky enough to find Nick! He was at our door within the hour with a great attitude, fast service, and SUCH a great price! I even gave our landlord his number for tenants to use in the rest of the building. I'm super thankful for Nick coming out and would ABSOLUTELY call him again

Perfect experience. I have multiple units and I've dealt with various plumbers in the past. There's always been an issue from not showing up to wanting to haggle for more than the agreed upon price. Miguel gave me a quote right away. Showed up when he said he would. He did the job and kept me in the loop throughout the day. Very professional.

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.
