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.

Oleg saved me when I was in a pinch. I had forgotten that a closet installer was coming in a few days, and needed some plumbing from an old vanity removed from the soon to be coset stat. Once onsite, and started working, we found that the work needed was a bit more in depth and required additional parts, as this plumbing was shared by another bathroom, but that didn't prevent him from getting it done correctly. He came on time, was very professional and go the job done. I would definitely recommend him, and will use his services in the future too.

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.
