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)

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!

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.

Tom and his employee from Affordable Handyman just moved my toilet plumbing over one foot in my bathroom including the waterline which cost $375. They did a great job. Tom is very punctual, clean and thorough. I would hire him again. He is not just a plumber but a general contractor so he can do do anything you need. I plan on hiring Affordable Handyman in the future.

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 needed my garbage disposal replaced along with some work on a bathroom faucet. Wise plumbing came promptly and did a professional job. I could tell the plumber had a lot of experience just by the way he worked. The cost was very reasonable and I found the plumber to be a really nice guy. I usually don't write reviews, but I felt I would recommend Wise to anyone , including my family and friends, That's how good I feel about the service I received.

Very Honest Plumbing Company! 'Tritan is hands down our go to plumber from now on. I had purchased a $150 deal to replace our outdoor spigot that has been giving us issues. After a few weeks went by without me scheduling the service, they went out of their way to contact us to get it done. After coming out, they realized that the issues were due to a few screws and that the spigot did not need to be fully replaced. They ended up recommending we get a full refund on the deal purchase and instead just pay the $50 service fee. No question they could have gotten away with just replacing the spigot, especially given that the purchase had already been made. By far one of the most honest services we have ever had and we will put them on speed dial for future issues.'

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 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!

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.

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.
