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.

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.

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.  

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. 

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.

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.

Can a leaking pipe burst?

Yes. A leak in your pipe can build up pressure and wear through the material. Left unchecked, this pressure can cause the pipe to burst. This is why it’s so important to fix your pipes and contact a plumber as soon as you notice a leak — no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. 

Smaller leaks are easier and inexpensive to fix, saving you time and money in the long run. In addition, many insurance policies will not cover water damage for pipes that burst due to gradual leaks.

Dennis was extremely knowledgable, nice, professional and did a fantastic job. He offered multiple solutions to fix my problem, detailing the different price points and explaining the hows/why in a way that made sense to me (a non-plumber). I hugely appreciated that about him. In addition, his estimate was 40% cheaper than another well-known plumbing company in town. I'd use Helm Plumbing again in a heart beat.

Gave me a bid that saved me around 3 thousand from a bigger plumbing company. Since it’s a smaller company, it was a little tougher to get scheduled to do the work. But after almost a week, I have been nothing but satisfied!

I am very satisfied with the job Sewer Surgeon worked on our house' drainage clog issue. After I submitted the request on Thumbtack, Sewer Surgeon is the first to responded. The service man is very professional and nice. If I have other plumbing problems later, I will definitely think about Sewer Surgeon again.

James did an excellent job on our son's plumbing project. He responded quickly to the request and scheduled us right away as it was an urgent project. James also gave me the approximate price range to expect and we didn't have any surprises at the end of the work. The quality of work was excellent as well. Would highly recommend!

I have a new plumber! I found Cantrell Plumbing on Thumbtack and was skeptical because I'd never used Thumbtack before. I collected bids from a few other plumbers but Cantrell was by far the best. Blain came out when he said he would, did the job quickly and professionally, was very polite, clean, and left my home with the repair done and no mess. It actually looks so much better than before! Not only did the repair look good, it works so much better than before too. And Cantrell's prices are very reasonable!!! I could only select 3 out of 5 categories on this review, but Cantrell hit all 5 categories with an excellent rating. Next time I need a plumber, I know who to call. Give then a try, you won't regret it.

We recently bought a house and needed to change 3 toilets and attach bidets. Austin's quote was reasonable and he was very prompt to respond. He replaced the 3 toilets, attached bidets and also fixed some of the water leakage issues we had. Pros - Response time is quick, was able to fix our plumbing issues, price is reasonable, professional to talk to , has an understanding of the job. If you have a time constraint, let him know beforehand so he can bring in help beforehand. Cons - He will need to carry the most common additional parts with him which may be needed during repair works so that he can avoid trip to homedepot in between. Our bath tiles were not levelled and additional shims were needed to level it out and i highly appreciate him going to homedepot and get those, but i am assuming this may be a common issue in some of the houses.

David was extremely reasonable and honest. He came up with really good ideas that no other plumber who came to our house to bid the job offered. He recommended the most affordable options and went above and beyond to finish the job within the original quote he gave us even when there were unforeseen obstacles that made it more difficult and time consuming than we originally thought. He still charged the same regardless which was very kind and generous of him. Not only that but when he was on his way out the door after two days of working on my wild project I created in my bathroom remodel attempt, my kids broke our toilet!! David tried using an auger first and our toilet broke his auger so he ran out and got us a new toilet, brought it back and installed it within an hour or two and found the flashlight my kids flushed down our toilet🤦🏻‍♀️ We are so thankful to have found a plumber we can trust. If you are looking for plumbing work, look no further. I wish someone had told me to call him months ago before I wasted thousands on other plumbers coming in.
