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.

Sidd came to my home, assessed our needs and fixed the necessary plumbing quickly. He went the extra mile, actually six miles, to Home Depot to pick up an item that neither of us had foreseen the need for.

Johnny came over and changed my toilet plumbing that was 15 years old and cracked to a new head. He converted my tub/shower piping to only a shower. He was a great communicator and reasonable with the pricing. I will definitely be using him again! Thanks man!

I had an unexpected leak under my sink and David came out the same day and replaced the old valve that was leaking. He also went out of his way to help get my brand new dishwasher installed, even going to the store and getting the extra supplies needed! He was very respectful and I would refer him to friends that might need plumbing services in the future.

Thank you Wis. Your work is impeccable. I so appreciate your coming out to fix the plumbing issue I had especially on a Sunday afternoon when I'm sure you had other things you may have wanted to do. I would recommend you anytime. Stay true to yourself and may you be blessed exponentially. Good work and cleanup was nice too! Once again thanks! (PS- I would have picked all five if I could). You were professional and punctual as well as good work quality, responsive and great value!

The work perform to install the 3 toilets was completely incorrect and tried contacting for a full refund and no response. First the toilets where install with only one functioning. Both others flooded the floor as they were not installed properly and/or sealed as needed to be done. Raised this concern and no reply to either txt messages or messages via thumbtack. Pictures will fully depict the nightmare job that was completed. Even cardboard was used as way of making sure the toilet was not moving around. I requested information on their plumbing license to no success. I've also requested a full refund with no success as I had to hire a LICENSED plumber as you can see from the pictures to re-do all toilets. Truly unacceptable and altogether irresponsible when I put my faith in your company.

I want to start off by thanking these guys so much for everything they did. I have never had to hire a plumber myself since I usually lived somewhere where it has been taken care of for me. I was warned of horror stories how for the project I needed done would cost at least $1200 and that plumbers always try to rip you off, but when I contacted Ace Quality Plumbing they quoted me a price based off of all the details I told them, and they made sure to ask questions to make sure they were giving me the best quote. I ended up paying way less than everyone originally thought I would and they were very kind men and helped me through the whole process. I can not recommend them enough. Not to mention how good their pricing was and they traveled from Ft. Lauderdale to my house all the way in west palm. I will definitely be using them in the future!

I needed to get my hot water working again after our Titan Instahot tankless water heater gave out. We've only had the house a couple of weeks so it was quite disappointing. I sent out a thumbtack message way after midgnight and by early next morning, Mike was one of the people who responded. When I called it was really great that Mike offered a free inspection of the plumbing, which he was able to do within a few hours that day. Not only is Mike familiar with tankless and was able to provide several options regarding that, but he was also able to provide me with estimates for going with an appropriate tank as well. Both options included what turned out to be an accurate estimate for the necessary electrical work as well. Mike was quickly able to recommend a great electrician (also called Mike) and everyone was able to work on the fix within 48 hours of the original thumbtack posting. Mike, Junior and Mike are great guys and I really appreciate how quickly and economically they fixed the problem. Couldn't be happier.
