I needed to have my “old” garbage disposal removed as it was leaking. Salvo responded quickly and the price he quoted me was very competitive. Some plumbers wanted twice or even three times as much for this job. Salvo came out to my house the very next day. He not only removed my garbage disposal but upon inspection of the pipes, he replaced all of them and did not want to charge me extra for it. Everything looks great now. Salvo also lays tiles and I will be sure to call him when I need new tiles in my kitchen and bathrooms. Salvo is a true professional and treats his customers with utmost respect. He cares about his work and about his customers. I would highly recommend Salvo to anyone with any plumbing needs. Thank you Salvo for your help! Paul G. (Schaumburg)

These guys are amazing, they are definitely going to be my go to plumbers for anything else I need done at my house! Not only did they get my sewer and drains rodded out as discussed but they helped fix a few other plumbing issues they really didn’t have to if they just wanted to get their job done and go home but instead they went the extra mile. Love working with people like this!

Unlike most plumbers, Bradley doesn’t make educated guesses as to where a leak is coming from. He approaches each case systematically and finds where the leak is coming from by checking each weak point one at a time. He saved me at least $4.75k! Several other plumbers recommended a full shower demo and reinstall. He got in there and tested several spots and realized it was a much easier and cheaper fix of one pipe/valve behind the fixture. Will use again. He is precise, good, fair, and HONEST.

Dan is a very knowledgeable and dedicated plumber. I had a very tricky water sediment issue which required an engineered solution. Dan came to our initial appointment with an idea already crafted and ready to discuss it's implementation. Once I was clear on what needed to be done to proceed, we scheduled a time for the next day, which I thought was fantastically quick. Dan communicated with me via text the day of our appointment which made it much easier for me to stay at work as long as possible before his arrival. Dan was efficient and diligent during the installation process, including cutting pipe and soldering our new device into place. When faced with some very tricky issues during install, Dan kept his cool and was able to find a solution to proceed. After the project was finished I was so pleased that I enlisted his services to help with some other issues which have been bothering our family. It's this type of expertise that will make him our GO-TO GUY for future plumbing issues.

I was very impressed with the knowledge and honesty that Don gave me on this job. The price was very reasonable. He was very polite to our renter and me. Also, I was impressed that he gives a 90 day guarantee on his work which many plumbers don't offer. I will hire him again.

Brian responded immediately and showed up at the time we set just a couple hours later. Not only did he complete the job that night but he also answered all my questions and showed me everything I needed to know about my bathroom remodel job I was doing myself. He recommended several solutions to problems I didn’t even realize I had. And they were solutions that didn’t benefit him at all. This is my new plumber. I’ll recommend him to family and friends.

I had a wonderful experience contracting with M&T to replace my water heater. The price was decent and service was exceptionally good. The heater broke down on Friday late evening and the new water heater was up and running before noon the next day. I scoped a number of plumbers but ended up with them. Ian was great to work with and so was Michael. I would recommend them any day and to my friends and neighbors. Good service | good price | 5 star service overall. They cleaned up and covered the entire route leading to the boiler room in the basement. I would definitely hire them again ..

Paul was in and out of here in no time at all and was very friendly. I assume he did a great job, but he said to call him if anything ever went wrong and he'd come back to fix it. Will definitely contact again the next time we need a plumber.

I had a very complex and complicated leak involving my sprinkler system and other water system interactions that ran through the house and out into the yard. John responded to my Thumbtack reply within an hour and agreed to go on-site the same day. In my experience with plumbers in general in the area that is unheard of. My previous interactions with local plumbers in Downers Grove/Darien area was one where they "might" be able to get out there in a few days, and had instances where they just never showed up after they said they would. But not these guys - they were GREAT!!! John called me after hours from the property (I rent the house) and talked me through what his preliminary assessment was. He was ready to proceed the next day but we had some difficulty coordinating the tenant to be there. But John hung in there, directly coordinating over the next few days to arrange for access and to have the water turned off so the work could be done. In the end it turned out to be a very difficult resolution, but John and Do Right Rooter took all the steps necessary to resolve the problem. At the conclusion of the work he spent about 30 minutes on the phone with me explaining the scope of what was done. He volunteered to come back out in the spring before the sprinklers are turned back on to do a more thorough pressure test to ensure there are no other leaks in the systems' interactions. I could not ask for better service and can only recommend the best trades-men service I have had.

I couldn't have asked for a better plumber. With 10 years of experience, he was able to repair my toilet in less than 2 hrs at a very fair price. In addition, he mentioned that his grandmother had the exact same same toilet (which was a rare type of Kohler), so he knew exactly what needed to be done. I'm selling my house this summer and he was a godsend. My very highest recommendation. In fact, give him an 11! Hire this company!

Sam was able to come same day and snake my sinks. He was professional, polite and explained everything he was doing to fix the problem and why. I would definitely call him first for any plumbing needs in the future as well as refer him to anyone in need of a plumber.

I had a sink which had an unusual type of drain that another plumber had a problem installing. Adan was able to install it very quickly, and he was very meticulous in how he installed it so that it looked perfect when he finished. He even came by the next day to make sure that it was working correctly. I highly recommend Adan as a conscientious hard worker who will do an excellent job. I would hire him again in a second!

Professional. Clean. Punctual. I had a leak in the ceiling on a property I was supposed to hand over the following day. J Roberts came through in a big way. Patched the ceiling and painted it. Within a few hours, it looked as though there was never a leak to begin with. I also had plumbing issue for which I hired a plumber. After the plumber left, I realized the drain they were working on had another leak (which the plumber saw but didn't think it was his problem to fix). J Roberts fixed it. He even went to the hardware store and grabbed a new drain for the kitchen sink and out it in. Highly recommended and would definitely hire again

Patrick did a great job updating 2 shower valves and rerouting sink plumbing for a kitchen remodel. He even updated some piping to code that was not part of the original work scope. He was very helpful in recommending the right valves and future maintenance. Patrick was also very careful with his tile cuts as that was are only access point. He made a perfect cut that is easy to patch without damaging any other surrounding tiles. Highly recommended and definitely will be my Go To plumber from now on. I even have him coming back for some addition work.

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.
