I am very happy with my experience with Drains Inc. My main sewer line was suddenly clogged for no obvious reasons. I brought in a local plumbing company (good online reviews) to check it. Since I do not have an outside cleanout, the plumbers had to rod from the cleanout located in my basement. He rodded 100 feet (maximal length of his rodding machine) but that didn't solve the problem. He suggested to install an outside cleanout, then hydro-jet from there (to avoid making a mess in my basement). This seems a reasonable solution but would take too long a time for us to wait. I called several other companies, checked many online reviews, and finally hired Tim. Tim was very punctual and professional. He first rodded all the way (120 feet) to the street sewer line, then hydro-jet to clean all the sludge away. I was very worried that my basement might be flooded. Thanks to Tim's skill, that did not happen! BTW, always ask your plumber if they have insurance to cover any potential damage. I probably still need to install an outside cleanout to eradicate the problem. But Tim solved the most urgent problem. A good, honest and skillful man. I highly recommend him.

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)

Gino was a pleasure to work with. He was upfront about his quote prior to arriving to the job, assessed the situation when he arrived, and worked diligently to see the problem resolved all the way through to the end. He saved me from having to buy a new toilet and left me with a good feeling about using him again in the future should the need arise.

Bradley did a great job. My faucet wouldn't shut off. He went, got the part. Explained everything and was done quickly. He noticed the water flow from my shower head was ok but not great so he unscrewed it, checked it and boom I had better water flow. He did that at no additional charge. He also doesn't try to get you to do things you don't want, unlike some other plumbers who try to scare you into doing more. I would definitely hire him again! Good to know he's around if needed.

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.

George is very punctual, comes earlier than scheduled, and communicates well with appointments via text messages. He knows what he's doing and is very professional. Very polite and accommodating, answers to all my inquiries so I ended up having him do more plumbing task in my house than originally requested. Highly recommended. He will be our go to plumber from now on.

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 ..

After my very unfortunate experience with Ludwig Plumbing out of Lake in the Hills who could not complete this job in 5 weeks and never returned any of my calls, I was very pleased with JDM. Dave came out the same day and completed the work very quickly. He was polite, knowledgeable and good and I highly recommend him for almost any kind of handy man service as well as plumbing.

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.

Alex is highly professional and skilled in his craft. We needed a new battery replaced in our back up sump pump and he replaced it with a new and improved maintenance free battery and now it's running efficiently. We will make sure we keep his information, because good plumbers, who care about their customers are hard to find. Thank you, Alex, for ALL your help in getting our sophisticated Zoellar Aquanot sump pump backup system running again. We are extremely satisfied and forever your customers. Thank you!!! 😁

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.
