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 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. 

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.

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 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.

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. 

Contact the best pipe repairers in your area to find out how much it will cost to fix your pipe(s). 

To learn more about pricing factors, read “How much does pipe repair cost?

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.

Greg came the next day after contacting him, as scheduled. We had a leak coming from the wall under the stairs in the basement. He cut out the sheet rock and found a broken drain line from the kitchen sink. Greg and his helper removed the section pipe and replaced it with a new one. At the very end they ran the water from the upstairs sink to check for leaks. The job was done within an hour. I would recommend High Point Plumbing to anyone having plumbing issues.

Of course, we have house guests and our spare bathroom shower had no hot water this morning!! Eric was at our house within 2 hours of my first contact with Salt City Plumbing (they had a cancellation spot) and repair was done super fast. Eric was able to diagnose and fix the issue very quickly. He explained the situation and how to prevent it in the future on showers that are not used often. Thank you for the rapid response and extra tips!! We will be calling you again if we have another plumbing need!

Our washing machine had died and as we hooked up the new one the cold water valve started leaking. TB Yetter plumbing was the quickest response time of the pros contacted. He came out within 30 mins and had the both the hot and cold valves replaced within the hour. Communication was excellent and was punctual. Highly recommend!

TYLER H.
We hired Tyler and his crew to provide various plumbing updates for a total home remodel. Projects included moving plumbing for a free standing tub and new shower. They installed new shower valves, replaced all water line valves, and ran new lines and a drain for a double vanity. They also installed a new main line pressure valve and closed up water lines from a removed second water heater. Tyler and his team are extremely professional. They use the latest and greatest in plumbing technology. Their work looked clean and tidy when it was all said and done which is the mark of a true professional. The pricing and quoting provided was awesome. Each service was detailed in description with a set price. It was very easy to know exactly what I was paying for and to select the services I needed. Customer service is a top priority for Tyler and his crew. They stayed late to make sure the project was completed on time. They even came back after the project was completed to fix what I thought was a minor issue. Turns out it was a mistake on my part but Tyler came over quickly and even fixed my mistake for me. WOW! You can't go wrong choosing Evergreen. These guys know their stuff, are true professionals and truly care about their customers. Thanks for a great experience.

Leroy was fantastic! He did exactly the job we needed & wanted - for exactly the price quoted - no hidden / ticky-tacky fees that we've run into before, with other plumbers/electricians/ etc. The plumbing work was done well, and you can see the quality! Thanks Leroy! ... and we'll be calling again when we need you, no doubt! We'll also be sharing your name & business w/friends as well, at every opportunity!

Our water heater went out Friday night so we decided to try and use thumbtack after getting some high quotes from other companies. Northridge plumbing messaged us within 30 min, gave us a quote for a much more competitive/fair price and came Saturday morning and took care of everything. Seriously we couldn’t have picked a better plumber. We will be using them going forward for other jobs. Couldn’t be happier!

Terry was wonderful. He came out, let me talk through what I needed and then priced out the different options. He walked me through the different tasks to ensure I knew everything. He was able to start right away and get my bathroom all up and running. He was very tidy and I think the bathroom is actually cleaner than before he did the work. I will definitely be using him for any plumbing needs in the future.
