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 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.

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. 

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.

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 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.

Outstanding! Very impressed with all aspects of the transaction. I received several bids/quotes for the plumbing work that was needed, Pro Source Plumbing was very fair in their pricing! In fact, the job was completed at 1/2 the price of one of the bids I received. Excellent communication, very transparent in all aspects, and the quality of the work could not be better. So happy that I have finally found a fair and trustworthy plumbing group that charges a reasonable price for work done. Highly recommended, true professionals!

I could not be happier with Sergio’s work. He showed up on a Friday night and had a new sink, disposal and all plumbing reconfigured. Cleaned up and even looked at another project. One of the most professional and nicest guys I’ve come across in a long time.

Asked for the plumber to fix a leak on my exterior faucet and he wanted to come out the same day. I asked if he could come out the next day but no response. The next day he just showed up. He took a look at it and he told me that it would be $315 then 350. He told me that he couldn’t fix the concrete around the faucet but he could put Great Stuff around it. At that point I wanted to send him on his way but then I would have to pay 75 for him to go away. After he was done (15 minutes) he said that it would be $395. What happened to 350? From now on I am going to use lex plumbing for all my plumbing needs.

Chance was a great help and saved me a lot of money by advising me against a costly upgrade that actually wouldn't have benefited me. He was able to alleviate all my concerns with a different recommendation and did a great job installing a flood stop on my water heater. I'll definitely hire Augerpros for any future plumbing needs.

I would definitely use Boone’s Plumbing again. Mr. Rob was courteous and professional during our entire interaction. He had to order parts and called to let me know they were delayed and apologized for the inconvenience. Honestly, an apology wasn’t needed since EVERYTHING is on back order right now. Got the job done and came back out promptly when I realized water was leaking. He promised to take care of it and he did. His pricing was reasonable and appreciated that he didn’t try to get over by charging ridiculous prices. Others wanted to charge double what he charged. Replaced kitchen faucet, replaced stopper system in 2 bathroom sinks and replaced stopper in tub which took some time as previous person in residence glued it in and it was rusted. You won’t go wrong with Boone’s Plumbing.

What a great husband/wife combo! Needed a water heater replaced, and in super short notice, Steve and Nita were on the job. They met me at HD where I was able to purchase the necessary items, and once at home, did a fantastic, efficient job installing the WH. Highly, highly recommend this team. Will keep them on speed dial for future plumbing needs.

After posting our plumbing needs Joshua answered with his quote within minutes. He understood exactly what we wanted done. He was able to come out that very same night after finishing up another job. He was polite, his work efficient and neat. We are so so pleased; especially after receiving a quote from another company costing 4 times more and saying the job would take 2 men and an all day job!! Thank you Joshua 😀

Working with Valerijs was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable about the repairs and was helping me understand if the same issue happened, how should I fix it. He was very communicative on the time and the price for each repair. I had a faucet to be replaced and the new piece was damaged, he temporarily fixed the old piece and did not charge for it. For another repair, he did not have the parts, so he went and got it from Home Depot and only charged me the receipt amount. Very reasonable, professional and good knowledge, I would highly recommend his services for Plumbing repairs.

Yanse was able to come out and fix my busted hose spigot same-day and did a quick and excellent job. He was the only pro willing to quote me a straight-up price (and a very fair one at that) for a straightforward job without needing to schedule estimates or play any games. He gave me a price right away, showed up the very same day, got the job done and saved me the time and headache that I've come to expect from traditional plumbing services. Yanse will be the first person I contact the next time I need some work done.
