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.

All of my interactions with Leroy were very professional and positive. Leroy offered a very competitive price for the service requested. I will keep Four Seasons Plumbing in mind for future projects.

I'm very pleased with the service. He came over and told me how much it would be. He also suggested some things I should look into doing in the near future. But, he never forced me in any direction. I also am not very knowledgeable when it comes to plumbing. So, he went with me to the store to make sure I was only choosing from things that would work with my current setup. I would use Ted's Heating and Air for plumbing again.

So HAPPY I called ReScope. Anthony came exactly when I needed a plumber (next day!:)and also accommodated MY last minute time change. He fixed the plumbing problem fast. They are very honest, Super reasonably priced and won't fix things that aren't really broken to make money (I appreciate honesty). Also, an added plus for me is he was very kind, accepting and friendly to my crazy dogs which was great!! I will definitely be calling them back for any plumbing issues we have.

Turns out all was good he took the time to show me what I thought was a problem was not a problem. An honest company. Could have had things replace that didn't need to and make a buck but instead explained everything and in the future will trust this company with my plumbing issues

Tyler gave a fair quote for installing a water softener, fixing an exterior faucet and installing 2 ball faucets. The job looks very clean and everything is working great. I had several questions about the job and he was able to answer all of them. I'll use Evergreen in the future for any plumbing needs. Thanks

We had a great experience with Expert Plumbing, Heating, and Air. They were very communicative about our scheduled appointment - you get confirmation emails and texts beforehand and when they are on their way. They were able to install a new hose bibb on the back of our house for us that was well done and done quickly. Our technician, Allen, was super friendly and respectful - would hire again.

Salt city did not meet our original consultation date and there was no communication that the appointment would be missed until I reached out several hours after the scheduled arrival time. However, they took accountability and promptly resolved the issue - scheduling with me the next day and providing great follow through communication and resolution to my issue. I understand that things happen but accountability and follow thru are key to salvaging a mishap - Salt City plumbing did this excellently.

Anthony did an amazing job, initially only came for a PVR replacement, but I had just finished receiving a quote for a water softener from an other company/door to door sales fro $6500. I was able to get the PVR and a new water softener installed for a fraction of the price of what the other companies had quoted me plus I also signed up for their Protection Plan. I'll continue to use ReScope for other plumbing needs and refer them to friends and family.

I hired Victor's plumbing to replace a kitchen faucet. Victor was able to respond quickly and get my job done well and fast! While on the project he also noticed my garbage disposal was rusted and leaking. He gave me very honest feedback and suggestions and helped me get it replaced correctly. He was honest about what he could and couldn't do and that made me trust him and value his opinion even more! Thank you!

Had a water pressure gauge on our main water line and two shut off valves installed on our water heater at our home. The service and professionalism was top notch. We ran into some issues with our main water line due to the way the house was originally plumbed. I let them know and they were over the next day to check out the issue. They came back to the house and strapped down the pipe at no extra charge. They really know how to create lifetime customers who will come back for any repairs or upgrades needed. Saying thank you wouldn't be enough. Hire, Hire, Hire! You will not be let down.
