We had a big plumbing issue where the pipe going out to the the sewer was just completely blocked off. Since we recently bought the property, we believe there was probably no maintenance done by the previous owner in a long time. It was a rather expensive call since the pipe that connects to the city sewer was covered in roots. Drains Inc. came out and took care of the problem the very next day from when we contacted them and we are very satisfied with the service. I would definitely recommend them to anyone having plumbing issues.

Tim was upfront in setting my expectations right from the start. He clearly explained what would have to be done. He answered all my questions. He fixed my plumbing problem it the time he anticipated. He was very pleasant and personable. Big PLUS... his "Free Estimate" is actually free.. no hidden charges. If necessary I will call him in the future and will definitely recommend him to friends.

Ron and his son Ronald from Remodeling Associates came to our home to repair a number of challenging plumbing issues. They were able to resolve all but one very professionally, timely, and at a reasonable price. For the one issue that needed more investigation, they were able to refer us to a professional who specialized in that specific type of plumbing problem. I would recommend Remodeling Associates for plumbing repairs and use them again should the need arise.

Ben was great! He showed up on time, very professional and friendly, and was able to address other plumbing problems I had the same day. Though his rates were very reasonable, I hired him due to his professionalism that I read from previous reviews. Ben will now be my go-to handyman for my home. I highly recommend hiring Ben Hopkins for your handyman services!

Excellent service. Gino came over to our home as soon as he could and fixed the plumbing problem professionally and courteously. We requested his service in the early evening; he was at our home within a few hours. Clean up was fast and well done. I recommend his services and plan to be a repeat customer. Thank you, Gino/ARA's Plumbing!

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.

Hired to work on plumbing including garbage disposal and install a new faucet. Was able to wrap up the job in a little over an hour. Called later that day to say there was a small leak and came back that night to fix the issue.

Mark arrived right on time and got the job done right. He is very courteous, straight-forward, professional and knows his stuff. In talking to him about some other on-going plumbing issues, he is the first plumber we have had that totally understood what the issues were and the best way to address them. Highly recommended!!

Hands down best experience I’ve had on Thumbtack. If you’re looking for guys to do an unreal job and do it right the first time. These are your guys. Just moved back to Chicago bought a new place. And needed a new kitchen sink and disposal put in. I went out bought both and had them ready. Posted my add on here and they responded within the hour with a personal response and could do it the next morning on my schedule. They came out.... The sink was the wrong size for the lower cabinet but correct size for opening. They left and said to go out take my time. Return it. And to pick out one that will work for me that I’ll like. Gave me the measurements and suggested a few places. Great guys. Went out bought one brought it back. Texted the guys. They were at another job and once they finished, came back and stayed till 8pm to finish my job and make sure I had a working kitchen. And then on top of it all. Didn’t charge me a dime more than what they quoted me even though they had to come back a second time. I’m using these guys for new plumbing in my bathroom and to install the walk in shower along with new laminate floors for my whole place as well in a couple weeks. Gave me a quote that was perfect for my budget and I don’t want to look anywhere else. I trust these guys, (which doesn’t come easy for me) I’m prior service military, and couldn’t have felt more comfortable from meeting them with a smile and handshake. Even my dog laid on Salvos chest while he was installing the sink. And Salvo went one handed to do the work and pet my lab the whole time. Couldn’t be happier. Thanks gentleman. Can’t wait to see you guys soon.

I had an issue with my water heater. They were able to determine what the issue was and fixed it quickly. I am having them to come back out to work on some additional plumbing working on my bathrooms.

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 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.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

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.
