Golda B. says, "Need A Plumber or HVAC All purpose heating and air sent out Brent to take care of our plumbing over 10 years ago. We’ve used him for years for not only plumbing but also Heating And air-conditioning. When it came to a plumbing issue recently Brent came on short notice and did a Camera scope for me. He even went out of his way to drive all the way to Kaysville to pick up a new camera. Luckily we called Brent because we found that there was roots in our line. This was what was causing our back up. He is an amazing plumber to call for any reason. For problems with any sewer issues, drainage issues, leaks, and for new home inspections. He even checked my attic because I didn’t have a ladder for any issues with hornets nest, insulation, and leaks. Brent is talented and very easy to work with. He is my number one when it comes to plumbing among a multitude of other professional tasks we’ve had him do. Brent has years of experience and is extremely professional. I’ve worked with Brent for over 10 years and have found him to be the most honest contractor I’ve worked with thus far. Hire him today and you will not be disappointed. Brent will go out of his way to take good care of you and any issues you have. Brent is an Expert in his field and an asset to any team for realtors, homeowners, and professionals.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to fix a drain?

If you hire someone to fix your drain and clean it out, it will likely cost around $150-$200. This cost is likely to change based on a few factors, including:

  • The complexity and location
  • The type of repair needed (hydro jetting is more expensive than snaking, for example)
  • If the plumber needs to perform a video inspection
  • If the plumber needs to fix issues with the main sewer line
  • If it’s an emergency repair
  • Or if the plumber has to provide additional plumbing repairs

Always get estimates from a handful of plumbers to find out exactly how much your repair will cost.

What do plumbers use to unclog drains?

Plumbers use two main methods to unclog drains. The first is a snake, which is a long, flexible metal coil that works its way through tight corners to dislodge whatever is causing the clog. This can be either hand-operated or motorized. More costly is hydro jetting, which involves shooting high-pressure water through a clogged drain to remove buildup from grease and other substances, as well as to remove clogs.

When should you call a plumber for a clogged drain?

Assess the situation and try a few at-home solutions. For example: 

  • Did you try several DIY methods (using a plunger, drain cleaner, drain snake, etc.)?
  • Are there multiple clogged drains in your home? 
  • Do you suspect your main sewer line is clogged?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, it might be worth contacting a plumber near you to come diagnose and fix your drain issue.

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.  

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.

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. 

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.

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.

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. 

Reviews for Holladay drain cleaners
Jeremy O.
They were able to come out same day on a Saturday. Was a little later than the original planned time, which happens. A little more communication about the delay would have put them to a five star. Cleaned our basement drain where we had a lot of water backing up. Was quick and professional. Did great work! The concrete is all dried up and the drain is working great.

Monkey Wrench Plumbing was the first to respond to my inquiry regarding my clogged tub drain and the most upfront with price. They communicated well day-of and showed up on time. Jason and Gentry were our techs and they checked under our (TINY) crawl space to ensure they had the right plan of action depending on our type of trap. The actual drain cleaning was relatively quick and efficient. We were charged amount we were quoted. Jason. and Gentry were professional, friendly, humorous, and knowledgeable. Would happily use this company again.
