Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much do plumbers charge per hour?

Depending on the service you need (unclogging a drain, fixing a pipe, installing new pipes, etc.), plumbers charge anywhere from $45-$165 per hour. Plumbers often operate on a fixed rate model, too. Some won’t charge hourly rates because the variables involved in their work makes it less practical to do so. 

Plumbers will scope out the work, calculate the cost of parts, and roll it together with other fees to give you an estimate for the job. They may even offer standard flat rates for things like installing a toilet or a sink. Reach out to plumbers near you to get an accurate cost estimate for your project or repair.

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.  

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’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. 

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.

Does insurance cover a broken pipe?

Sudden water damage may be included under most homeowners’ insurance policies, but it’s typically not covered if the damage could have been avoided with proper maintenance.

For example, if a pipe in your laundry room suddenly bursts and causes damage to the flooring and walls, that is usually covered by insurance. But if a pipe under your sink has been leaking for months and causes your wood floors to rot, your policy won’t cover that damage.

Always double-check with your insurance agent (or another expert)  to see what your policy covers.

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 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). 

To learn more about pricing factors, read “How much does pipe repair cost?

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.

Dayton replaced two shutoff valves and two coupling joints in our water line including the master valve and exterior water supply valve. He was prompt, very professional, and self-confidant in his ability to fix our problem. His extremely conscientious nature was demonstrated in his showing us areas for concern down the road. Although Dayton’s cost estimate seemed a bit higher than I imagined, further research demonstrated Pierpoint’s price/value proposition to me. I will be calling on Pierpoint Plumbing to address our future plumbing needs.

I had a number of companies come out to give bids to remove our 50 gallon water heater and to replace it with a tankless, and Pierpoint Plumbing gave a competitive bid and provided the best insight into creative ways we could get the job done. Dayton showed up on time on the day we had scheduled in advance and worked all day to get the job done. He was also kind and courteous and helped explain how to use the new hot water heater and didn't leave until he knew we were getting hot water throughout the house, even though it was late in the day. My wife and I had been looking for plumbers we can trust for awhile now, and we have found them with Pierpoint Plumbing.

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!

We had a great experience with Sewer Surgeon. First Daniel came and did some work. When that wasn’t the cause of our issue, Aundre came to check it out and found the main cause. He was also nice enough to instruct me on how to fix another particular plumbing issue - which was extremely nice of him. I felt like they were honest and really trying to help us. Super easy to schedule via message and showed up on time. Would recommend them to anyone and will certainly call them again should they need arise. 5 stars!

I had to pay another 12k to have a legit plumber fix what they were hired to repair and I had to pay to have everything they damaged repaired. They jack hammered my basement ripped up new flooring to fix an issue. An issue they didn't fix and the other plumber was able to fix. Much to my broken heart the floor was trashed for no reason. It was a comical experience at best. They hooked my hot water to my refrigerator, cut out copper pipes that were fine previously, caused leaks throughout basement. Left sewage pipes with out properly sealing. Hot water heater exhaust not done properly and gas was leaking. Worse plumbing experience of my life. But Adam Sandler is using the story for his next movie (I wish!).

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.
