Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How long do pipes last in a house?

The lifespan of pipes in a house depends on the type of piping, according. Here’s a breakdown of how long pipes last, depending on the material: 

  • Plastic pipes (PVC, CPVC, etc.): Indefinitely
  • Copper pipes: 50+ years
  • Brass pipes: 40-70 years
  • Galvanized steel pipes: 20-50 years

How do I replace the pipes in my house?

The best way to replace old pipes in your house is to hire a licensed plumber to do the fix. You and the plumber can start the assessment by figuring out when your pipes were installed and if they’re in poor condition. If the plumbing in your home needs to be replaced, the plumber may need to remove drywall or ceiling materials to access the pipes and perform the job.

How much does it cost to install piping?

Installing piping in your home will likely cost between $450 and $1,000 per fixture. However, it’s important to always get cost estimates from plumbers so you can properly budget for this project. Several factors will drive the cost to install new plumbing in your home.

For example, the size of the house and the number of fixtures will impact costs. And the type of pipe material also has a significant impact, with copper piping being the most expensive. Piping located in difficult-to-reach areas also drives up the cost, as does wall repair and add-ons like water softeners.

What’s the best type of pipe for plumbing?

The best type of pipe for plumbing depends on your needs and concerns. For example: 

  • PVC lasts indefinitely and is easy to install.
  • PEX is easy to install and isn’t subject to corrosion.
  • Copper is durable and slightly more expensive.

Talk to your plumber about all your options, which may include other types of pipes (CPVC, polyethylene, ABS, polybutylene, etc.)

How often does plumbing need to be replaced?

How often your plumbing needs to be replaced depends on several factors, but the primary one is the type of piping installed in your house. Different materials (copper, steel, plastic, etc.) have different lifespans. How well you treat your piping also affects how often it needs to be replaced. 

Here are additional signs you may need to replace your piping:

  • Your pipes need constant repairs and attention
  • There are signs of water decay, discoloration and leaks
  • Your drains lines endured damage from tree roots or severe weather
  • You’re remodeling your home

When in doubt, always ask a plumber for their expert opinion.

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’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. 

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. 

Reviews for Houston pipe fitting professionals
Danielle H.
I am very displeased with the choice we made in plumbers. I picked this company because they had so many reviews and the bulk of them were very positive. The work was started over a month ago and it’s still not complete. We are renovating our home and it’s far from complete but we wanted to make sure we had all plumbing checked and replaced if needed. Also, we had a bathroom we wanted set up with toilet and shower for later addition of a master bathroom. We wanted to be set up so all plumbing would be ready to go. First, the plumbers that have come out have been nice and respectful. My problem lies with the lack of communication and the amount of money we paid. We ended up having our entire house changed to Pex pipe and were quoted a certain amount to have this done, then the plumber that was in charge at our location let us know that due to 2 additional items he came into they needed to charge additional for it. They only had to supply pipe, fittings and labor. We had all fixtures, appliances, etc.... The total amount came to over $20K. Also, the original quote was for 2 weeks of labor...they finished in one and no adjustments were made. This is where a “red flag” went up for me. We explained one of our necessities was to pass inspection. Well we were under the impression after the work was supposedly complete that our inspection would be passed and we would be able to continue. We found out it was insufficient because our master bathroom had no items connected (only piping) for future install (it did have toilet and sink but no shower). No one ever told us that would be an issue and we didn’t know, this is all new to us. So what was the point of inspection? Also, we were never provided an invoice or contract agreement on what was going to be completed. Once we found out about the inspection (not by this company)...we called and spoke to owner and that’s when he explained that we never would’ve passed inspection because of the bathroom. WTH, why didn’t anyone tell us this?!! Additionally, found out the plumber who managed our job was fired because he texted my husband “thanks, because of you I got fired.” We called the owner and he stated it was because he never got us to sign an invoice or agreement to invoice. We did not pay our last payment because we had discussed with (now fired) plumber about having toilet and piping moved in our master bath (which was included in one of his additional amounts to charge us)...the owner finally sent someone back today and they started the job, disconnected our toilet and then asked my husband to sign a paper saying we would pay once completed. He said he would sign once they completed. They then told him, “Well we cannot finish the work until this paper is signed” and they left. Now our toilet is disconnected and they left us in a bind. Do yourself a favor and go elsewhere....sometimes the cover of the book can be misleading. The professionalism of this company is far from acceptable. I am now looking into legal representation because we already paid $20K and this company is screwing us over $3K? Really?... Also, this job started at the end of May...it’s now August
