Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a plumber during the COVID-19 pandemic?

If possible, it’s best to set up a virtual consultation or phone call with a plumber near during the COVID-19 pandemic. You can send a message to a professional plumber near you and ask if they are available to video chat or have a phone call. Use that time to discuss the work that needs to be done. Make sure to ask any questions you have about the project. And lastly, ask the plumber how they handle payments and whether they have any specific safety precautions in place to comply with social distancing. 

How can I find out if a plumber is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

Generally, plumbers are often considered essential service providers. Essential service providers vary from state to state and city to city, however. For the most accurate information, check your official state or city government website to see whether a plumber is considered an essential service in your area.

Read CISA’s publication on identifying critical workers to find out more information on a national level. Some, but not all, jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure. 

Are there ways to be safe if I hire a plumber when social distancing?

Contact plumbers near you beforehand to see if they can complete the project without entering your home — for example, by entering the garage to fix a broken water heater. If the plumber needs to enter your house to do the job, you should proceed only if both parties feel comfortable with the project. Consider taking extra steps such as waving instead of shaking hands, staying 6 feet apart, using digital payments and sanitizing common areas.

Does a plumber need to enter my home?

A plumber will need to enter your home to fix plumbing issues like dripping faucets, clogged sinks or toilets and leaky pipes. They might not need to come into your home if the faulty appliance is located outdoors or in the garage. Before you begin the project, contact plumbers near you to find out they will need to enter your home.  

Can I use digital payments to pay for plumbing services?

Some plumbers accept digital payments -- Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, etc. -- for their services. Before you hire a plumber, ask them if they accept your preferred online payment. Many also feature digital payment options on their profiles. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, digital payments are typically considered safer than cash and credit cards.

Do plumbers offer remote or virtual services?

If you see a profile that states the plumber is offering remote services, contact the plumber before hiring them to see what those services include. Although plumbing is a job that has to be done in-person, you can ask them if they offer virtual consultations or an online walk-through. 

What do you do if you have a burst pipe?

First, switch off the water supply to reduce the water damage. You should also turn off the electricity for the part of your home that has sustained the leak, as it can be extremely dangerous if the water comes into contact with an electrical socket. Next, drain the remaining water from your faucets so it doesn’t freeze inside the pipes. 

Once you’ve done all of this, search for qualified plumbers in your area and ask them to provide you with a quote. 

What happens when a water pipe bursts?

When a pipe bursts, the water can cause indoor flooding and damage your home. If the pipe is in an accessible location, you will likely notice puddles of water right away. However, if the pipe is underground or behind a wall, it may cause reduced water pressure, a sulfur smell or discolored water. All of this can cause significant (and expensive) damage, which is why you should always contact a plumber near you if you suspect your pipes are leaking.

What are the signs of a burst pipe?

If your water pressure has suddenly dropped or your sink and toilet have unexpectedly started clogging, you may have a burst pipe. Other tell-tale signs include watermarks on the wall of your bathroom or laundry room, drips or puddles in your home or basement, or water from your faucets that have suddenly turned brown. You may also notice a strange rotten-egg smell or the sound of gurgling water in your home.

If you notice any of these signs, contact a plumber near you to fix your pipes immediately.

How much does it cost to repair a broken pipe?

The national average cost to repair broken pipes ranges from $120 to $170. Prices can vary depending on the type of damage, whether the pipe is easily accessible, the materials needed and where the pipe is located. For example, an exposed pipe under the sink will likely cost much less than a pipeline in your yard that requires digging. 

Your overall cost will also depend on the hourly rate of the contractor. Most plumbers charge between $60 and $65 per hour for standard pipe repair, and up to $95 per hour for complex plumbing work. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s).

Mike of Hydro Tech Max Plumbing was responsive to my inquiry. We arranged an appointment within a few days. Not only did he repair my toilets, the reason for the service call, he also aerated my bathroom sinks at no charge. Mike was helpful by providing additional maintenance care suggestions. I have already recommended Hydro Tech Max Plumbing to a friend.

I hired Cristian to get plumbing for a wet bar in a finished basemen and has an excellent experience. He was the first to respond and came the same day. Although the job was complicated, he gave me a fair estimate and finished the job the same day. He even did a thorough cleanup before he left.

A+ had to come out to do some pretty complicated tasks during a master bathroom remodel. Jason was full of great ideas and knew exactly what the project needed for success. He let me know ahead of time what it would take and offered absolutely great advice during the process. I was only lacking a trusted company for plumbing, but now I have one.

Risvan, he was very punctual and professional. Usually I have bad experiences thru these app. I had a small plumbing job with my toilet. He was honest and did not want to charge me high rate since the job was simple and requested to pay him what I think was fair. I was happy with his work. I would certainly hire him again for future works.

Mike was able to schedule an appointment with me the next day after calling him. He came out and provided excellent service for the price he quoted me despite me not having much information for him to work off of before his arrival. He also helped greatly to identify some other plumbing issues I may have down the road and offered excellent options to get those done in the future that I greatly appreciated. Fantastic above and beyond service.

Alberto contacted me promptly after I described our issues on Thumbtack. He came to our house in the western suburbs the next day and looked at the work needed, and provided a detailed estimate that evening. The cost was reasonable. We needed to order a new 5-hole faucet set and he agreed to schedule the work as soon as the materials were received. He came back the following week and performed a difficult installation that required removing some tiles alongside a whirlpool tub. He prepared the work site with plastic sheets to protect the area while cutting the tiles away neatly, and he left the area spotless when he finished. The faucet installation was difficult because of its tight location, but Alberto got it done correctly with neat work. Then he repaired a leak in a DWV pipe in the basement, where a water softener salt discharge had been attached previously. The pipe leaked slowly but continuously after he cut out the defective piece, even after hours without using any water upstairs, and therefore the normal PVC solvent technique could not seal it. Alberto returned the next day with some different materials and quickly repaired the leak. Alberto is cordial, conscientious, and punctual. I would not hesitate to use his services again, and have already recommended him to a friend with a plumbing problem.
