Seth is outstanding. I had a kitchen sink installed and a new main line from my kitchen and connect it to the main sewer line. He was right on the money in the amount of time it took and gave an accurate quote. His responsiveness was very fast. Seth believes in doing the job correctly the first time. He is not out to gouge you like some companies in the area do. Seth also gave me great vibes when I first met him. Great work ethic. Also important to me was he treated me like I was his only customer for the time he was on the job. He also takes off his shoes before he comes in. Or he will put booties on. I learned that because he does that at home. It is a sign of respect in my bookSee more

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 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. 

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).

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.

Michael was professional and completed the job in a timely manner. He upgraded all of my plumbing, installed a new water heater, and even built us a beautiful wrap around deck. I will be using him again on my next fix and flip.

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

We've had leaks and backups from our kitchen sink for months and we were constantly wiping up water that had spilled over from the pipes onto our kitchen floor. Pierce County Plumbing was the first quote I received after typing up my issue. I called them the next morning and spoke to Joe, the owner. First I was surprised to have a real person answer the phone, then to my surprise again he said he could be at my home same day, within an hour or so. Wow! Joe showed up, told me I needed a complete rebuild of the kitchen pipes. They not only were installed wrong, they were not within code standards. He told me the cost and it was higher than the original quote I received on Thumbtack...a couple hundred dollars higher! But he said since he sent me the amount quoted online he would honor that price. Wow! From the time I contacted Joe to the time he finished the work, it was a total of 2 hours! Joe texted me and told me he was on his way and would arrive within 30 minutes. He showed up on time, assessed the problem, fixed it (remember, this was an enter rebuild of the pipes) and cleaned up all in 30 minutes! We even chatted the entire time he worked. I would 100% recommend this company to a friend. They are timely, professional, polite and do outstanding work. I also asked about recommendations on installing a new garage disposal. Joe answered all my questions and I will definitely call him when we are ready to do that install. Thank you, Joe. *If I could post photos of before and after so you can see the transformation, I would. Excellent!
