Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do plumbers charge per hour?

Depending on the service you need (unclogging a drain, fixing a pipe, installing new pipes, etc.), plumbers charge anywhere from $45-$165 per hour. Plumbers often operate on a fixed rate model, too. Some won’t charge hourly rates because the variables involved in their work makes it less practical to do so. 

Plumbers will scope out the work, calculate the cost of parts, and roll it together with other fees to give you an estimate for the job. They may even offer standard flat rates for things like installing a toilet or a sink. Reach out to plumbers near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your project or repair.

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.  

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. 

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. 

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.

Does insurance cover a broken pipe?

Sudden water damage may be included under most homeowners’ insurance policies, but it’s typically not covered if the damage could have been avoided with proper maintenance.

For example, if a pipe in your laundry room suddenly bursts and causes damage to the flooring and walls, that is usually covered by insurance. But if a pipe under your sink has been leaking for months and causes your wood floors to rot, your policy won’t cover that damage.

Always double-check with your insurance agent (or another expert)  to see what your policy covers.

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.

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.

What are the signs of a burst pipe?

If your water pressure has suddenly dropped or your sink and toilet have unexpectedly started clogging, you may have a burst pipe. Other tell-tale signs include watermarks on the wall of your bathroom or laundry room, drips or puddles in your home or basement, or water from your faucets that have suddenly turned brown. You may also notice a strange rotten-egg smell or the sound of gurgling water in your home.

If you notice any of these signs, contact a plumber near you to fix your pipes immediately.

How much does it cost to repair a broken pipe?

The national average cost to repair broken pipes ranges from $120 to $170. Prices can vary depending on the type of damage, whether the pipe is easily accessible, the materials needed and where the pipe is located. For example, an exposed pipe under the sink will likely cost much less than a pipeline in your yard that requires digging. 

Your overall cost will also depend on the hourly rate of the contractor. Most plumbers charge between $60 and $65 per hour for standard pipe repair, and up to $95 per hour for complex plumbing work. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s).

They came within short notice and assessed plumbing issues in question. They were very thorough in explaining what needed to be done (and why they needed to be done). They are not out here to nickel and dime and it's very much appreciated

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!

After having three quotes to do my project (replacement of a whole house water softener system) only Polmar Home Services were completely responsive, offered fair pricing and did the job perfectly. Could not have asked for a better plumber to complete this project and Jack did a wonderful job using state of the art plumbing technology. I would highly recommend PHS to all my neighbors who need an honest and straight to the point plumber to do the job right the first time. Thanks Jack.

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!

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.

I had Red Rooter Plumbing come over to do an estimate on a simple change out of a whole house water softener system that should have been an easy change out. When they gave me the estimate of $1,375.00 for a one hour job, I was completely taken back. The highest bid besides Red Rooter was $375.00 and I thought they were high. I have no problem in hiring a professional plumber to do this change out, but I am not will to send their kids to Harvard on my expense. I will not be calling these guys back any time soon unless I win the Lottery. So the owners calls back and says he wants to make it right and have a supervisor do the job himself. So I agree. He shows up on time and what would you know. Second review: You have got to me kidding me!!! Am I on a prank sitcom show or what???? Your "Supervisor" comes to only "look" at this job and in 5 minutes gives me a bid of $1,000.00 and then says he can't do the job today and will need to reschedule another appointment later next week. What was the point in giving your company a second chance to make it right? If that wasn't enough, he proceeds to trash my flight engineer who purchased the replacement water softener, stating that they are simply "bookworms" and they don't understand the basic mechanics. Please.... Have some class at least when dealing with the general public. That was totally uncalled for and totally disrespectful. Please loss my phone number and don't call back. I'll find a real plumber to do the job and one that will actually stay and do the job.
