Nolan was able to come to my house on the same day as my inquiry. I needed a new kitchen sink faucet installed to replace a broken one. I was able to disassemble the existing fixture but there was a particular rusted out bolt that I could not undo. Nolan came the next day and was able to remove the bolt and install the new plumbing fixture all under an hour. He is a professional and I enjoyed his method of working; I got a kick out of how he electronically documents the steps involved and posting on Instagram – modern day tech! I will definitely use his services again in the future and don’t hesitate to use him. Based on his cool website, I knew he was going to be a good choice!

James came to take a look at our dishwasher water connection situation and suggested a Plan A that would not require us to hire him. If Plan A were not to work Plan B would be for us to hire him and his team to help us. Well, his Plan A worked so we do not need his service this time. I really appreciate his honesty. He will our the first person to call when we have other plumbing problems.

Nick and his associate worked to accommodate my schedule and started working right away. Even though the job turned out to be tougher than expected they handled it and did a great job. They gave me an estimate from my description and it took care of the whole job. I would recommend using Honest Plumbing. Ronald

Mogi & his company was great and very helpful with my bathroom remodeling goal. They did a lot of work on my bathroom. They moved & added plumbing. They relocated my bathtub, vanity, & door. They put tiles and made a custom vanity table in one of my bathroom closets. I felt he really wanted the job to be done well. I also felt they were knowledgeable about plumbing & electrical work. I am looking forward to continuing to work with this company. Thank you.

Fantastic! Art showed up right on time, I told him the details of the problem, and he knew exactly what to do. Took him mere minutes to fix it, because he clearly has the knowledge and experience to handle what the big-name guys swore would be hundreds of dollars, even though I knew it was a simple job for a plumber. See, every place I called before using this app was just predatory, treated me like some dumb broad who doesn't know anything about plumbing. Art was the opposite: honest, straightforward, and reasonable. He quoted me a reasonable price, and verified it when he inspected the plumbing situation. And the price he quoted was never inflated with add-ons or other sneaky ways people can bleed you. He was friendly, professional, punctual, and offered a good value for the job. Absolutely recommend! Next time I need a plumber, I'm calling Art!

Big Jerry's Plumbing

Robert from Big Jerry's was "Johnny-on-the-spot." Technically I guess he was "Robert-on-the-spot." Anyway, mere hours after noticing my water heater had a leak, using the Thumb Tack app and getting a quote from Big Jerry's Plumbing I was back in business with a new, installed water heater. Robert and his son explained what they were doing and answered all of my questions. The water heater itself cost a bit more than quoted. The install, to my understanding, comes with a one year warranty on the work should I need a plumber to come out for issues related to the new water heater. The water heater itself has a six year manufacturer warranty. I plan to use Big Jerry's in the future when I am ready to get an outside faucet bib replaced. I highly recommend for your plumbing needs.

I have found The Handyman Seattle to be very helpful in maintaining my 100-year-old house. Much of the small stuff I can do myself, but I don't do plumbing and electric. Or roof. Jonathon was recently very helpful in putting in a new doorbell. One of the reasons I like Handyman Seattle is that they show up on time. I'm sure I will be calling again.

I recommend Henry with 100% confidence that he is well able to assess and repair or fix your plumbing needs. He was recommended to me by a very close friend when I was having what I considered a crisis emergency and I am so grateful that he cane and fit my service needs into his schedule for that day. His follow-up was also excellent and each time he was within scheduled time frame given to me. His office staff Anna (his wife) is beyond excellent very professional and totally great customer service practice and I am sure she is the glue that keeps it all together. RCKnox

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

How do you find a good plumber?

Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

  • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
  • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
  • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
