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. 

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.

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.

I originally hired All New Again to just swap out two old water heaters, I needed a company that would be flexible and remove them one day and then install the new one 5 days later after we had our garage floor sealed. Two of the other plumbers that came out were going to charge me a crazy amount for the two visits and tried to up-sell me on all kinds of pluming work. All New Again was different, they were super responsive, very flexible and helped us find a select a single water heater to replace the two existing ones w/o compromising capacity and recovery time. They were not sleazy salesmen like the other plumbers. During this project I learned that All New Again is is full service contractor... Over the course of the last 3 months I have now hired them for Plumbing, Drywall, Painting, Tile Work, Trim Molding Installation, Exterior Door Installation, Electrical Work and even Cleaning Services after our small remodel project was complete! I have one number to call and I get a trade specialist to do the work (not a handyman)! The people they send out work directly for All New Again, they are not random subcontractors! They are always professional and very personable, they do a fabulous job at a fair price, clean up better than they found it, and they are usually starting work on my project within a couple of days of my call (not weeks or months later). I love everything about this company!!!

These guys are ok plumbers but you have to keep an eye on them and make sure they are doing exactly what you want. I started out with a big leak under my bathtub and called them out to check it out. Jackie and Dustin came out quickly and together we found out that I had a lots of rot (long term slow leak). They offered to fix the leak but I decided to go for a full remodel. After I fixed the rot issue I had Danika install a new bath tub and redo the shower valve and plumbing. They did a good job with the tub install but not so good with the valve and drain. Bottom line is every time I talked to them about trim or the valve or the marble wall I was going to install they ended up letting me down. They said they couldn't find a tub drain in nickel (only chrome). I ended up going to home depot and buying them a nickel drain and overflow cover. They had already gone to home depot too (and charged me a $100 for the trip!) and bought some things too. They ended up putting in there over flow drain with a lever (that doesn't work) and a push button bottom drain (that I bought) and installing the shower valve too far out (over 1.5 inches) even though I gave them a sample of the marble I was going to use. It all works but looks weird. The handle sticks out too far and the overflow drain screws are rusting after a week of use. I called to complain and they sent Jackie back out but he said the handle is supposed to look that way and there is nothing he can do about the rusting screws. It's all stupid. I'll just order stainless steel screws from Amazon and deal with the stupid shower handle. Just very disappointing.
