We discovered a clog in the kitchen sink late one evening. I used Thumbtack to contact plumbers. Tim from Drains, Inc. contacted me right away. He arrived first thing the following morning and cleared the line. He was in and out quickly and I was glad to have the problem resolved.

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)

Tim is a very nice gentleman. He figured out the problem and fixed it in a day. Till now I had paid two other plumbers who were referred to me . They never could figure out the problem. Now it's fixed. Would highly recommend Tim.

Gino did an excellent job, he was professional and friendly and made sure I was satisfied with the results. I was impressed enough to schedule a follow-up job next week to do a preventative main sewer rodding.

There are gew people I trust and plumbers do not always rank very high. Bradley breaks the mold on plumbing. 1) reasonable prices for the amount of work they do and the responsibility of effective repairs Id rate him 9 out 10. 2) Cleanliness ....like all homeowners I wish they work booties, but the man cleaned up after himself. Cleaned up where we had to cut through a wall. 3) No b.s. on the professionalism. Very worried about the customer being happy. Extremely concerned to make things right. Even when the customer is pissed. That being said, I think he and all pros should have a checklist they give to customers. Sort of like the car dealers who check off 150 items after a service to let you know before after what to worry about and where things stand. 4) Very friendly and very trustworthy. Id give him a key to my house. 5) Fixes what needs fixing and gives you a realistic expectation of what further work would cost. 6) My project involved 100 year old pipes that corroded. When you have water leaking plumbers have you over a barrel. They charge to show up and being in a trade where most homeowners have zero idea what is going on can propose the most outlandish things. Bradley was direct , to the point, and eager to get me fixed up. The price estimate was what he said it would be and there wasnt any coming back saying he needed extra this or that. He is a man that knows his business. He also replaced the parts in a 50plus year old 3 gallon per flush toilet that wore out and the toilet kept running. The last plumber I had for a clog took a look at it and told us the whole thing had to come out. No way Id give up on a 3 gal per flush. It has stopped hissing for the first time in 8 years. The only thing Id like to see him improve on is to either learn drywall repair or partner with a reasonably priced board and tape we leave it you to paint associate. So too bad there is only 5 stars to give. If you want someone you can trust who honestly places the quality of his work first and getting customers happy with quality safe repairs call Bradley.

Dan was one of three plumbers referred by Thumbtack, each of whom offered competitive pricing for a solution to a church basement flooding issue. With both a professional and friendly manner, he troubleshooted and cautioned me about the scope of work that needed to be done. Although he wasn't selected for this particular work, he was a solid first runner up and his gracious time spent at the work site is much appreciated.

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 ..

I was really very pleased with Chris' service. He was very professional. One thing that I was really impressed with was his punctuality with contacting me when I had some questions. Ludwig plumbing went beyond what I expected and did the job in a acceptable amount of time and an affordable price. I had about 5 other plumbers over to look at the work needed to be done. The other plumbers failed me by not contacting me after they gave me the quote. They didn't follow up. I had Chris install a tankless water heater, water softener and water filter. Our family is very pleased with the level clean and hot water we now have. I highly recommend Ludwig plumbing for all your plumbing needs. I will hire again without hesitation.

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.

The All Pro Plumbers were very quick to respond and highly professional in handling of the sewer problem our tenant was experiencing. Within a few hours of our contact through Thumbtack, they called and came out to begin work. We are very impressed with their work and would recommend them again. Larry.

I was desperately looking for reasonable and reliable plumbers to replace toilets for my in-laws and found these guys on thumbtack. From the start, they were super responsive and provided me with a reasonable quote. Through out the project, they kept me in a loop from leaving, buying and picking up toilets, and showing up on-time. They were extremely professional and did a fantastic job. I would highly RECOMMEND these guys to anyone who is looking for someone reliable, affordable, and professionals to do the Job.

John is very professional, knowledgeable about what he is doing, over 20 years of experience and he is a very nice, humble plumber. His price is very reasonable and upfront which means no hiding cost. He lets you know the cost of job before he starts and he stick with the price doesn't matter how long and how difficult it takes. I hired him through Thumbtack to work on my blocked kitchen discharge pipe that he spent lot more time than his estimation because I have a very large house and pipe line goes over 60 feet, and he didn't complain and didn't charge me extra and he just got that job done perfect. If you are looking for someone who is hard working, responsible, good price, John is your man!

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.

Wow!!! What can I say, Tom and Harry are amazing. I called around because I needed my sewer line rodded and it was complety clogged, like an explosion of toilet paper and "ahem" you know everywhere. I called a few plumbers and they walked in the door and had standard prices. Long story short. 1st quote was $655 , 2nd quote $295. I used the second plumber and they were completely inexperienced and deceptive. They messed up the sewer gate valve and had to be called back out and they tried to charge me to complete the job they didn't complete and wrote the bill up for 450 instead of 295. Needless to say I went to Thumbtack to find another plumber and Tom responded immediately and we spoke a few times and said he'd stop by and look at it free of charge. Well he determined that he could do the job and the price to rod the line was great, they came over on Tuesday in the evening and started rodding with the electric eel, and reached roots and other things and the line was still clogged. They stayed until 9pm and came back the next day , they needed more line and came back finished the job the next day and got my sewer unclogged. Just wow, they went the extra mile and saw some other items that could use a quick repair and were more than reasonable. Hire Tom and Harry! They don't have a book with set prices like the big guys. Straight forward and very friendly. I was quoted absolutely ridiculous amounts for removal of the old sewer gate and back flow valve inside and install a new clean out in the yard. Tom quoted me a price I can't say no to!! We're scheduling this install in July or August. Give Tom a try, the level of workmanship, professionalism , quality , HONESTY, reliability are second to none. I wouldn't hesitate to call the guys that get it done. Trust me this is a real review, so happy I didn't need to take a mortgage out and get a second job to fix the issue. Thank you Tom and Harry.

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.
