Excellent service. I had to replace my water heater and got multiple quotes from plumbing companies who made it seem so difficult. Jose replied to my request right away and within 30 minutes he was already at my house ready to start work. He picked up the water heater and didn't mind to finish work the same evening even though it was already late. He did an excellent job replacing the water heater and even checked with me the next morning to see if everything works fine. I will definitely work with Jose again Keep up the good work!
I called late on a Saturday with a water heater emergency. Ronaldo came out to Fremont as soon as possible. He was able to replace my water heater, change some copper piping which was installed wrong by another company and gave me a great price!! I would highly recommend Bright Ideas plumbing for any plumbing job in the future.
he replaced the thermostat and a faulty wire connection inside the heater
Did a great job with replacing our water heater. Was extremely thorough, focused on doing the best job possible. We ran into a few unforeseen leakages since our water heater was quite old but he came back the next day and helped replace those parts as well without other extra charges. In general, I felt that he did outstanding work.
Ray and Gary are highly recommended. They worked on a number of projects as I remodelled a unit: - rerouted all the plumbing in kitchen - moved location of hot water heater - added sink to a toilet room - rerouted gas line Ray is everything you could want in a professional: great communication, clear bid, trustworth, punctual, and most importantly, does really good work.
Erik helped to troubleshoot what, thankfully, ended up being a minor water heater issue.
Max was very thorough in explaining the complexity of my original water heater system and let me know my options. He was quick to respond to my questions and provides excellent service. Highly recommended for water heater replacement needs!
Gleo was really wonderful in helping fix our our water heater which stopped working on New Year's eve. Gleo reached out to me via Thumbtack. We exchanged a few messages and he asked for photos of the boiler and the switch module. After reviewing the photos, he mentioned one possible root cause and submitted a quote for that. I accepted the quote and he came over very promptly the next day morning as promised and helped resolve the problem. I liked the way he worked through different possible problems very methodically and all the while he explained me what he was looking for before he started poking around. He not only found and fixed the boiler problem but waited to make sure that the problem was verified and hot water was flowing at all taps. He also promised to stand by his work for the next few days in case the problem came back. Overall, the problem was resolved successfully and the experience of working with Gleo was very good. Thanks very much Gleo. You helped us out when even the warranty company could not. Kudos!
Routine water heater swap - yeah right. What started out as thinking our water heater was broken, turned out to be a long overdue clogged sewer lateral. Worst case scenario. While I'm not that happy about the sewage overflow situation which could have been better mitigated (and we still need to beach the hell out of that room), the solutions and options offered by Ali were professional and spoke of his experience. To unclog the piping, snaking was attempted but failed, hydrojetting was attempted but failed (with a mess of sewage). Finally we got a camera down there to find a wall of something about 50 feet down from the mechanical room to a spot under the sidewalk. Digging 4 feet down, to find actually a pretty good condition clay lateral. Ali's man Valentino (a skilled gentleman), cut the clay and replaced it with a riser in order to install a cleanout for future maintenance. Once done, they hydrojetted for another hour to clear 7-8 months worth of waste. The camera was once again sent through to find that a portion of the clay lateral had shifted and created uneven surfaces including some penetration of tree roots. While most plumbers would probably recommending an immediate replacement, Ali recommended that since it wasn't fully collapsed, we should simply clear out the lateral as routine maintenance rather than spend all the money to replace the pipe. I appreciate his direct communication, no sales pitch, and brief coaching through the process. While I do have 10 yrs of construction experience, and his price was not the cheapest, he certainly delivered on time and without any sense of price gouging.
Greg came out to replace my hot water heater and to install a new sewage ejector pump lid at a perfectly reasonable price. He did a great job considering the many difficulties with installing the new lid.
Rolo has a great attitude and was a pleasure to work with. He seems very knowledgeable and was able to install a water softener and laundry machine valves without any problems. He was also flexible to allow for weekend appointments.
Our hot water heater was 24 yrs old and it could never hold a hot shower for very long. Denver Lim came in and promptly and quickly diagnosed the problem. He recommended we replace it immediately and he came back the next day and installed a new heater in record time. Amazing service and professionalism. Really happy with the work.
Gerardo was amazing! PG&E shit down our gas water heater because they deemed it a hazard after they saw that it was giving off really high reads of Carbon Monoxide which meant the heater needed repair, cleaning or replacement. He replaced the missing piece on our water heater, cleaned up the area surrounding the water heater and even went out and got us a carbon monoxide reader to make sure that my family stays safe in the future. He also checked and replaced our garbage disposal. He is an amazing, clean and efficient handyman. He also arrived to our home within 10 minutes of our phone conversation on a Sunday!
Ralph was great to work with! He was very responsive and got the job done in no time. He was able to easily assess my water heater and fix it within one visit. I would highly recommend him for your water heater needs.
Max arrived early to appointment and got things done professionally. Required no supervision and knew exactly what he needed to do to replace our 40g water heater with a bigger 50g HE version. When we ran into a problem, Max again stepped up to the plate and took care of it. Would definitely hire him again.
Their tech Derrick fixed the heater at my house in Daly City. They were willing to accommodate my busy schedule. The cost was reasonable and Derrick was knowledgeable and extremely friendly. He quickly figured out that the problem was a blown transformer in my heater caused by a problem with the inducer. I'll definitely call them again if I need an appliance fixed.
After talking to other plumbers about repairing our kitchen pipes I had a good feeling when Ganzo came to our house to check out the job. He went into the attic at least twice to measure and survey the situation, the other guys didn't even get on the ladder to look. He was very methodical and took his time figuring out exactly what was needed. Ganzo and his son came on time with all the material and tools necessary. After the piping was completed we found that the facet was also bad. They went out of the scope of the job and installed a new facet too. We had a great experience, on time and on budget. Next time my neighbors or friends ask if I know a Plumber I will say absolutely.
Mike went above and beyond. Tried multiple fixes and saved us from having to buy a new hot water heater. Also recorded a video of the fix for our records. Thanks Mike!
I needed to replace my water heater, as it was making scary sounds from the debris inside. Harris responded quickly and kept me informed throughout the process via text message and phone call. The technician did a good job of informing me of my choices. They finished the work within a couple of hours of signing the paperwork. The workmanship was very good. They replaced hard pipes with flex lines for earthquake safety and extra shutoff valves to isolate the recirculation line. The technician explained the permitting process with the city. I thought they were a bit expensive, but I was very satisfied with the overall experience.
Water heater replacement. David was clear with his dealings up front and provided what he said. He made sure that the brackets/strap were well drilled and have work well even in a tight space.
Camilo and his colleague did an excellent job -- the project involved preparing a closet for a washer and dryer, hooking up gas and building a water drain. They used high-quality materials, were always on time and got the hob done on schedule. I would highly recommend them and plan to work with them again whenever I need plumbing work done.
