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 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).

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.

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.

Troy was great! He showed up on time and I was actually late to the appointment... although my job was quite simple to the usual work that he does, I didn’t feel as if he treated it as trivial. He even discovered an issue with the plumbing to my dishwasher that could have led to a major plumbing issue. The faucet installation was seamless and it looks great. I’d definitely hire Troy again for any plumbing needs and will definitely refer him to friends and family.

After telling Von Drain my issue (I wanted to increase water pressure), he suggested a phone call that would be free if we could solve the issue over the phone. He was able to guide me through the steps to accomplish the task. I will use him in the future for my plumbing issues. Thanks!

MRSR Plumbing receives a 5 on all. Although the matter was not urgent, he was willing to come out and take care of it the same day. There was a break in his schedule and he promptly came out the next day and got to work immediately. I am very happy with the work. His price was competitive, but where I saved is the fact that another plumber was too scared to turn off water from the street. For someone reading this review that may not know, make sure your plumber is not afraid to do this as long WSSC equipment is working they have the ability to do this. If WSSC comes out there is a fee of $60 for them turn your water off and $90 to turn it back on. I was informed that many plumbers do not tell you this, it gets added to your water bill. If I ever need service again, I will call MRSR Plumbing.

Juan was a pleasure to work with. Family friendly, very knowledgeable, and performs works at the level of a master engineer. Not only did he fix the plumbing issues I hired him for, he also fixed an outstanding electrical wiring issue with my dishwasher and a water leak issue with my HVAC unit. I highly recommend him and would hire him again.

Unfortunately this was a very poor experience and I was left with a significantly leaking faucet & damaged fixtures. A one (1) hour basic plumbing job to replace 3 sink faucets & 1 bathtub faucet (no internal wall plumbing changes required) took four (4) hours. This was simply a cosmetic change. Nothing was broken or leaking…I just wanted to upgrade the faucets in my bathroom. He arrived without all of the tools required to perform the task then after spending two (2) hours trying to remove a sink drain without the proper tools left knowing that a shower head was spraying water all over the bathroom. He returned to fix the shower head after I called to alert him of the poor work product, but primarily because he did not want me to leave him a poor review. I discovered today that one of the sink faucets is now leaking a pool of water into the bottom of the vanity and I had to have another plumber come in to repair a drain that was working perfectly before. Would not recommend this unlicensed and unprofessional individual to anyone. Buyer beware!

I needed to have fixtures replaced in my tub/shower and bathroom sink. I hired Nick because of his estimate and the positive reviews I read on this site. I concur with all the 5 stars ratings this gentleman has received and would recommend him to all my friends and family who need plumbing work done! He is very competent, did an excellent job and went beyond what we discussed and cleaned out the drain that had been giving me problems, without changing the price!!! He's a gem!!!

Justin is awesome! Hired him over a month ago for a repeat issue with our shower not draining properly. He gave us multiple options/fixes and took the time to explain all of them. We eventually hired him to replace most of the drain pipes in the house and he was able to complete the project within one day. Our house is on the older side and since then I have ran into other plumbing issues that I have reached out to Justin for. He has always been responsive to my questions and inquiries and was able to talk me through fixing one of those issues without needing him to come out. I would definitely recommend Justin to anyone looking for a reliable plumber
