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.

Matt and beau are phenomenal and honest plumbers. They gave me a bid that was very reasonable and competitive as the others on thumbtack. I had them install my new faucet , disposal, dishwasher , and create a waterline underneath the house to the refrigerator . They were prompt and always on time beau did a great job with the plumbing install . My dishwasher didn't work because it wasn't plugged in. Matt came out the very next day to hook up the electrical to the dishwasher .... As well as rechecked all the plumbing to ensure no leaks. Thanks beau and Matt! Will definitely call you for my next plumbing needs Joe p.

They are by far the best plumbing and drain company we've ever used! We had a new toilet installed with them and they made it so easy for us! They literally did everything from getting us the best deal on the latest and quality toilet as well as saving us a lot of money! We had another plumbing issue recently and they responded right away and even offered to stop by later that night. I told them that the morning is fine, so they showed up and fixed the clog and didn't charge us a dime since it was covered by their warranty. I promise, once you hire Baxter's you will never look for another plumbing company again!

I appreciated that Grizzly Plumbing cared about our project. There were some details to our project that they took the time to learn to create a perfect end result. That is not always easy to do since it is challenging to juggle a demanding schedule. Thank you Mat and David and Jake too!

Trenton responded quickly and gave a precise estimate. Our sink drain was also backing up, not just the toilet so Jeff did a good job explaining what needed to be done and the cost to get it fixed. They provided a warranty on the job and quickly went to work. Would hire again for any plumbing needs

I couldn’t have been happier with my entire experience with Great NW. I had just put my house on the market, had an open house planned and of course a sink sprung a leak. I want to say it was also on a Saturday but it might have been Friday but either way, as soon as I posted the job they responded quickly. They were at my house within a few hours. I was expecting to pay emergency prices but that was not the case. I know this sounds corny but for me they saved the day and my open house. I’m moving out of town but if any other plumbing issues arrive before I sell I will definitely call them. Oh, they also, after looking at the project, told me what they needed to do and how much it would cost. It was clear they fixed it with the minimal cost possible instead of trying to make as much as they could. It was a small project but they treated it and me like it’s the most important job they’ve ever done. I’d give them 10 stars if that was an option.
