"frank, plumbing is not cheap, it's hard to trust someone you don't know, to do work under neath the slab of your house, to run pipes or to break walls; so you have to be really careful in selecting a plumber to work on your house. If you don't, a half-ass minor repair will result with a major leakage in the future. And by that time, who you gonna call? Ghost Busters? So choose carefully. I have a good feeling about David because he built his trust to me over a number of occasions from our meetings. David always call me "sir". I think this goes a long way because it represents professionalism. David pulled a permit for the plumbing, which is the right thing to do. To many others, don't go cheap on this. You need to pay for the permit and get the city inspector to inspect and ensure that the work being worked on your house is correct and up to code. After all, it is your house, it is your investment. Back to David, he always respond to a text or call. There was a time that David showed up and it rained, but he managed to put some good amount of work in, digging the trench, while soaking in the rain. I like that, it just shows responsibility and maintaining your promises in showing up and putting in the work. When the work is complete, David performed a "hydrostatic" test to ensure that there is no leaks. My previous foundation people did not even do that, they skimmed on this and said that they wanted to "save me money". At that time, I did not know what a hydrostatic test is. After speaking to David, I now learned what it is. So do a hydrostatic test, because it is your house. All in all, I'm happy with David's work. I wish him good luck in his future endeavors. If David build this, or has built this, tradition into his business, I have no doubt that he will be successful down the years. After all, in business, you gotta have trust. 9/11/2017, N.V. from Sugar Land, TX."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

How do you find a good plumber?

Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

  • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
  • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
  • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
