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).

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.

We had an amazing experience with Lucas and Good Day Plumbing. They helped us tackle a tough problem at our dog grooming business. Of all the people we talked to, Lucas was the most professional and able to consult with us on solutions. He was quick, responsive, and worked around our schedule. We will definitely be calling back if we have any more plumbing projects in the future!

Tyler at Evergreen Plumbing contacted us quickly, gave a fair bid, came out the next day and completed the job in a few hours. He worked around our schedule and answered all of our questions. He also offered advice on another project. Best experience we have ever had with a contractor.

We had new granite countertops put in our home and we hired Victor to remove faucets and re-install them along with dishwashers and garbage disposals. We also replaced all of our bathroom faucets and tub/shower fixtures. Victor did a great job, he was punctual and pleasant. We will definitely use Victor again for any of our plumbing needs.

Communication was amazing! The one giving the bid showed up on time after the main company had sent an appointment reminder. The ones doing the work were actually a little bit early (again, there was an appointment reminder sent out in advance) and completed the job before their estimated time. The price was reasonable for the work to be done, and I would recommend Mission Plumbing to anyone who wants their contractor to be on time and to finish when they say they will.

I would recommend TB Yetter to anyone! Responded very quickly, Showed up on time, the problem was a little more difficult than expected but Terry and his apprentice Jay doggedly worked through it until it was done right. They did not charge extra than quoted even though it took much longer than they initially thought. I will not try to YouTube another DIY plumbing problem again. Terry is my fair, honest and reliable solution from now on.

Ashley was wonderful to work with! He came out last minute on a Saturday and did a wonderful job replacing two hot water heaters and made sure we were up to code. He also assisted us with a filter change in one of our showers too without any question. He is extremely qualified and knows what he is doing. He works fast and efficiently. For any of my future plumbing needs, I will be using City Creek. I highly recommend him. Thanks again Ashley!

This might be the best experience I have ever had with a plumber. Not only did Jeremy fix the issues I was having with my toilet, but he checked for leaks in my house, found one on my newly installed water heater and fixed it without charging me. He was super professional and when he found out I had the part he needed, he also fixed my toilet at no charge. I was so impressed with how thorough and attentive he was and how honest. I actually have a different plumber that I have used for years, but I am now sold on Monkey Wrench Plumbing and I wouldn’t think to call anyone else.

Mike installed our bath tub in our unfinished bathroom. He chipped away cement, placed the tub, installed a shower/tub valve, plumbed for a sink and installed the ventilation fan. I put in the request on a Wednesday, he responded to the bid quickly, and finished the work on Friday, putting in roughly 12 hours on the job. Mike offered ideas and solutions as to how to finish the bathroom. He was prompt, friendly and extremely helpful. He picked up the items for us rather than us having to go and get everything. Working with Mike was easy, comfortable and stress free. His work is wonderful! We would highly recommend him. Hire him, you won't regret it!!!

I was pleased with Greg's work. His appearance was professional and he has a pleasant personality. He explained what needed to be done and the time frame he would do it in. He also pointed out a potential flooding problem that we could have in the future regarding a saddle valve attached to a pex line under the sink that was used for a reverse osmossis system by the previous owners. He said that it is a common flooding problem when the gasket wears out. He replaced it with a crimped tee and emergency stop. He did a great job remounting our farmers kitchen sink to the granite counter top and guaranteed his work for a year. My husband felt that his estimate price was reasonable. We will definitely call him again for future plumbing and home repair needs.
