Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a plumber during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

How can I find out if a plumber is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Generally, plumbers are often considered essential service providers. Essential service providers vary from state to state and city to city, however. For the most accurate information, check your official state or city government website to see whether a plumber is considered an essential service in your area.

Read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a plumber when social distancing?

Contact plumbers near you beforehand to see if they can complete the project without entering your home — for example, by entering the garage to fix a broken water heater. If the plumber needs to enter your house to do the job, you should proceed only if both parties feel comfortable with the project. Consider taking extra steps such as waving instead of shaking hands, staying 6 feet apart, using digital payments and sanitizing common areas.

Can I use digital payments to pay for plumbing services?

Some plumbers accept digital payments -- Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, etc. -- for their services. Before you hire a plumber, ask them if they accept your preferred online payment. Many also feature digital payment options on their profiles. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, digital payments are typically considered safer than cash and credit cards.

Does a plumber need to enter my home?

A plumber will need to enter your home to fix plumbing issues like dripping faucets, clogged sinks or toilets and leaky pipes. They might not need to come into your home if the faulty appliance is located outdoors or in the garage. Before you begin the project, contact plumbers near you to find out they will need to enter your home.  

Do plumbers offer remote or virtual services?

If you see a profile that states the plumber is offering remote services, contact the plumber before hiring them to see what those services include. Although plumbing is a job that has to be done in-person, you can ask them if they offer virtual consultations or an online walk-through. 

How long is a water heater supposed to last?

Your water heater is an essential part of your home, heating water for showers, dishwashing, laundry and more. On average, a traditional water heater will last 8-12 years. The general consensus is that it’s better to replace your water heater with a new one than to repair one that’s 10 years old or more. Older models are less energy-efficient and thus more costly to run than newer models with better technology. Here are some indicators of when it may be time to replace an old water heater instead of repairing it:

  • Leaks: If leaking is not caused by loose connections, the water may be seeping out through slight fractures in the metal of the tank that have formed over time.
  • Strange noises: Clanking, rumbling and other noises can mean that sediment has formed on the base of your tank, contributing to fissures leaks, and inefficiency.
  • Age: If it’s more than 10 years old, it’s probably time to replace.
  • Discolored or rusty water: Have a pro check it out; if the problem isn’t resolved by draining and cleaning, you’ll want to replace the heater.
  • Lack of hot water: Inconsistent heating and hot water supply that runs out too quickly likely means it’s time for a new unit.

What happens when a water pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, the water can cause indoor flooding and damage your home. If the pipe is in an accessible location, you will likely notice puddles of water right away. However, if the pipe is underground or behind a wall, it may cause reduced water pressure, a sulfur smell or discolored water. All of this can cause significant (and expensive) damage, which is why you should always contact a plumber near you if you suspect your pipes are leaking.

What do you do if you have a burst pipe?

First, switch off the water supply to reduce the water damage. You should also turn off the electricity for the part of your home that has sustained the leak, as it can be extremely dangerous if the water comes into contact with an electrical socket. Next, drain the remaining water from your faucets so it doesn’t freeze inside the pipes. 

Once you’ve done all of this, search for qualified plumbers in your area and ask them to provide you with a quote. 

Can a leaking pipe burst?

Yes. A leak in your pipe can build up pressure and wear through the material. Left unchecked, this pressure can cause the pipe to burst. This is why it’s so important to fix your pipes and contact a plumber as soon as you notice a leak — no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. 

Smaller leaks are easier and inexpensive to fix, saving you time and money in the long run. In addition, many insurance policies will not cover water damage for pipes that burst due to gradual leaks.

Johnathon replaced our water heater. He was great to communicate with, especially in selecting the right model heater for the money. He even picked it up at Home Depot on his way to install. Very thorough job - and we'd definitely call him again for plumbing needs.

Mark showed up as promised and examined the leak location and told us the problem was not plumbing but general maintenance. I was very surprised and humbled when he told that he would not charge us for this visit (he drove some 15+ miles in snow to reach to our place).

Peek's Plumbing gets 10 stars--the owner and his partner were amazing. We had a tough job in a small crawl space, where we needed to remove both the heater and furnace and install a new system. Upon arrival, it was clear that with Paul's over 35 years in the business he had the knowledge to get this job done right. With his unlimited technical ability combined with hands-on experience, he finished the job in record time, pulled the permit and passed the inspection on the first try. The system works great. The company was prompt and responsive to all questions, and did quality work for a fair price. I highly recommend Peek's Plumbing and Mechanical. Thanks for a great job! kw

Euro Plumbing did an excellent job replacing my water heater, and did so for a price that was considerably lower than other estimates I'd received. Dimitar and his associate Nicolay arrived on time, were pleasant and professional, and it is my pleasure to give them my highest recommendation. Barbara Kelly

We had a gas water heater fail and I contacted Friendly Plumbing. They got back with me immediately and said they could replace it within a matter of hours. They explained the cost and that they would go to Home Depot, pick up the water heater and bring it to the house for installation. I would only pay for the actual cost of the water heater and their installation fee which was very reasonable. Charles called me on his way to Home Depot and provided me with a selection of water heaters. I made my selection of the one I wanted and he brought it to my home where he and his brother installed it and removed the old one. They were very neat and professional. We were very happy with our experience with Friendly Plumbing and would not hesitate to recommend them.

We had polybutylene piping in our home and had a hard time finding someone who would take on the project of re-piping it. We found Jon on Thumbtack and he came out and gave an estimate and started the project the next day. I can't believe he and a helper finished in one day. Very pleased with all aspects of the project. We will definitely use Plumbing 101 again in the future.

We had a leak underneath our kitchen sink and George reached out to us extremely fast to give us a free quote. He came by that same day for an estimate, and had the work scheduled and done 3 days later. George was knowledgeable, kept us in the loop, explained what he was going to do, and did an outstanding job when he did it. We’re very happy with his work, and will be reaching out to him for any of our plumbing needs moving forward. Thanks George!
