Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

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.  

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. 

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 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.

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. 

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.

As life goes, I had another plumbing emergency. My kitchen flooded. Gack. I got the water to stop, but not a good situation. My first inclination, contact Shane, at Professional Plumbing LLC. He had helped me, before. He knows about this type of calamity. He got back to me right away, within hours. By then, it was not an emergency, but he came in two days. And he worked diligently, diagnosing and solving the problem. Saved, again! Shane, at Professional Plumbing LLC is my goto guy for professional plumbing services. Hire him, with confidence. I will certainly be hiring him, again.

If you have a plumbing problem, hire Pacific Northwest Green Plumbing, immediately. You will get great service. Aaron is a Plumbing Professional. He knows it all. And he will be able to help you with your unique plumbing problem. I had one. Three months ago, I had a dishwasher problem; it started leaking. I got a new one. That old dishwasher was past its time, anyway. But then, the new one started leaking. By then, I realized that I had a rodent problem. Eating through the cords. I hired an exterminator. Thinking that problem solved, I hired Aaron and he came out and restored my water. And it was great. Although, the exterminator peoples efforts, were useless. The rats then ate through the actual faucet’s cord, rendering it useless. Again, I had no water. But then, Aaron came through for me. Thinking “outside of the box” he proposed a solution that we are now trying. Now, I have water, again. Hire Pacific Northwest Green Plumbing. They will not rest until your plumbing problem is solved.

I hired Aaron to repair a leaky pipe and replace the main water shut off valve to my house. He was on time, honest, and was fairly priced. Charged half of what some major plumbing companies wanted. Would hire him again in a heartbeat.

Aaron introduced a very clean and effective way to solve my plumbing issue downstairs. He not only fixes the issues but identifies efficiencies and cost saving methods to use! I look forward to having him rebuild my bathroom. I can recommend enough!

I had reduced pressure in a faucet and contacted Plumbers NW on a Friday evening. Robert arrived the very next day (saturday noon) and resolved the issue. He also noticed a couple of additional issues which he recommended we repair and gave us a no-pressure quote on request. Definitely recommend hiring him for your next plumbing job.

Shane was fantastic. He was the first one to respond to my Thumbtack request. And from my rather vague explanation of my plumbing problem, he completely intuited the solution. In precise and exact terms, he offered a description of the service he would provide, a price and a time-table. He encouraged me to do a web search, to find more about it. The price was totally reasonable. And he came, on a more than timely basis. When he got here, I knew that I had had an outdoor sewer cleanout installed, years and years ago; I just couldn't find it. Shane was relentless; he dug around and dug around, and Wow, we found it! With that, Shane went to work, and in no time, my drains were cleared. He walked me through every step of the way, showing me what he was doing, and explaining everything. He even found a problem with the neighbors sewer system, which is connected to mine, and I took an iPhone video, with his subterranean camera, so I could show it to my neighbor. I can't recommend this Plumbing Professional more. And after the service, he contacted me offering complete support for his service. Hire Professional Plumbing LLC/Shane with confidence. You won't be disappointed.

Abbas installed a new water heater for my daughter and I the same day I contacted him. He was friendly, courteous,, professional, and completed the job quickly and neatly. He even helped move the one item that was heavy for me. Abbas is my new favorite plumbing professional and I will happily call him again and recommend him to my family and friends. Great customer service!!!

I had an A+ experience with H2Flow Plumbing, particularly in these areas: - communication: Hasan was super transparent and informed me at each stage of the engagement, from pre-arrival to post-work invoicing. - work quality: Hasan fixed a burst pipe and left the dry wall looking new afterwards. The job was done with high quality and speed. - professionalism: Hasan was very responsive, fitted me in the same day, and didn’t mind the clutter and kids running around outside while doing the work.

I contacted PNW Green Plumbing on a Saturday about a leaking water service line. Aaron got back to me same day and was able to come out and assess the situation an hour later. They talked me through the different options and sent over written quotes the next morning that were in line with other estimates for similar jobs, within (but on the high end of) the suggested range from HomeWyse. They were able to schedule the work to replace the house's aging water service line/main valve that Monday and Tuesday. I was very happy with the quality of the work they did and the speed with which they were able to schedule it and get the water working in our house again. Aaron and his crew were professional and easy to work with; they cleaned up after themselves and left the yard in reasonably good condition after the trench-digging was done. Their price was within the normal range for work in the area; it was neither the cheapest nor the most expensive of the bids we received. I felt we paid a fair price given the speed and quality of the work. Overall, I would happily call on Aaron and PNW Green Plumbing again.

These guys ran plumbing into my backyard greenhouse. They cut into drywall inside the house in order to add a line, then bored through the foundation in order to lay it in a trench that I provided. The guys did a good job communicating their plan and executing it. I took a star off because I had to make a home depot run in order to get a small part that I think they should have provided. Also, I don't have much experience with plumbers, but I suspect that this company runs a bit on the expensive side.

I can't thank Chris enough! He showed up within a couple of hours as he heard that we had a leaking problem. He helped us dealt with the leak immediately and gave the best advise for how to deal with the water damaged floor. He also took time to help us check the water pressure and spotted some plumbing risks. The work site is very tidy and Chris is highly professional and personable. The quote is very fair and the quality is top notch! I feel very comfortable working with Chris in the future. Highly recommended!
