Plumbing Drain Repair, Plumbing Pipe Installation or Replacement

  • Serves Trenton, NJ
I had called FlowSure Drain & Sewer out to our house for what I thought was a clogged kitchen sink. They showed up in the expected time frame just as they said with the face masks and gloves on. I showed them to my sink and he began running water they then began running water upstairs and that’s when the sink finally started to fill up. He went into my basement and noticed that the pipe was leaking and had informed me that not only was my line cracked but that I had a main drain issue. He then went outside and located my clean out in the front yard and determined that the clog was from outside to inside. He gave me the price for snaking the line from outside which comes with a video inspection and proceeded with the work. Once cleared he allowed me to watch the whole video inspection explaining everything shown on the camera. Everything looked good other than the crack inside. He provided a quote on the spot that not only deducted the price of the work performed but also an online coupon and a Covid-19 discount. We agreed to the work which came with a lifetime warranty! Now I have a great flowing sewer with a new clean out inside. They were the most honest, professional and customer concerned company I have ever dealt with. Everything they advertise is exactly how they do things. By the end of the job they cleaned with a degreaser and disinfectant spray that gave my basement a fresh smell and cleanliness like they were never there! Thank you FlowSure!See more

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).

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.

Hired Bill to take care of a clogged toilet issue on a building that was under construction. Not only did he fix the cog, but also noticed other plumbing problems (e.g. water pressure, draining) and fix those, too! He worked both professionally and diligently - great hire.

Society Hill 2- Condo 3rd floor. I own property and am undergoing a full bathroom renovation. The shower drain cracked in the process demo day of removing the base pane. I wasn’t sure how to get the help and heard of thumbtack thought I’d try it. Kyle with Parsons Plumbing did great work and understood what I was trying to explain about the job, had to cut the plywood subfloor and kept me updated as I wasn’t home for the initial repair. Will definitelyy keep you in mind for all home repairs

Stanley is a fantastic class A+ professional in every way! I reached out to quite a few of the "pros" here recently for a shower fixture replacement for the old set that was badly leaking. Stanley was the first one to reach out to me and figured out what would be best through pictures I sent him. He converted the old 3 knob set up to a classic sharp looking single handle set up. His communication was fantastic, he arrived when he said he would, he worked hard and got the job done within just a few hours! That also included replacing my bathroom sink faucet set with an entirely new set including new intake hoses. His price was about 40% of what some of the big plumbing companies would have charged and his work was excellent, as you can see the before and after photos here. He has a van loaded with top notch pro equipment, knew exactly what he was doing, and was a very nice guy also! Also, none of the other "pros"here that I reached out to ever got back to me. That was very disappointing, but spoke that much more about Stanley! I highly recommend this guy and will call him again when I need more work done by a true reliable pro! Thanks again Stan!
