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.  

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 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 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. 

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.

Reviews for Sugar House drain cleaners
Kendra S.
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.

Beyond HORRIBLE experience! Use one of the many other great pluming companies on Thumbtack! I never take the time to write a negative review but this experience was the absolute worst plumbing experience I have ever had in over 40 years of owning a primary residence as well as many rentals! *Called them on a rental last Wed early AM because my tenants washing machine was backing up. They agreed to get this simple problem fixed that day. *They showed up late in the day and said they would charge me $270 to snake the line. I felt that was expensive but I agreed. *They called me shortly after and, of course, they needed to hydro-jet the line. *I was out of town and simply needed to get my tenants washing machine working. I agreed to paying an ADDITIONAL $400 to get the job done so my tenants could wash their clothes. *Now nearly $700 to get a washing machine drain cleared. At this point, I had no choice, they were there and I needed it done. *A few hours past and my tenant called to tell me that the All Hours Plumbing tech left and did NOT hydor-jet the drain! Yes, my tenant told me this, I received NO CALL OR COMMUNICATION from All Hours that they would NOT fix the drain that day. *Received a text from All Hours the next day that they could not get a tech out to fix my drain till the following Monday! Are you kidding? I agree to pay nearly $700 to clear a washing machine line and now they are putting me off 5 days till Monday? SEEMS LIKE THEY NEED TO CHANGE THEIR NAME! ALL HOURS? THEY COULD NOT GET BACK TO MY JOB FOR 5 DAYS! *My tenants are frustrated and call to tell me they are leaving the house to stay with family and do their laundry over the weekend. Any of you who are landlords know that this is all the landlords fault! Thanks All Hours! *All Hours shows up at my rental on Monday and the technician abruptly tells my tenant that I cancelled the job and they leave. ARE YOU KIDDING? My tenant calls me rightfully VERY UPSET that I cancelled the plumber! Problem is that I certainly DID NOT CANCEL anything! I call All Hours and they explain that they made a mistake and have the plumber go back to the house. *Plumber jets the lines, tries to sell me more services which I decline and then charges me $900!!!!!! YES! After waiting 5 days to get a laundry line cleaned for $700, All Hours tries to charge me an additional $200! I guess they wanted to charge me to wait 5 days! *Again, they say the additional charge is a mistake and I pay $689.87 to clean a washing machine drain that took 6 days! (was it really a mistake or a revenue opportunity for the vast majority of people who simply pay what is charged). *I contacted management and shared my experience. I gave them a heads up that although I wanted to put this nightmare behind me, I was planning on posting a negative review (maybe the 2nd negative review I have ever taken the time to write). All Hours asked me to please reconsider and offered a $50 discount on my $700, 6 day job. I politely declined the discount.
