Diamond Plumbing was reliable/on-time to our scheduled appointment. Esteban provided options to repair my water heater. We agreed and he performed the repairs in a timely and professional manner. I will be using Diamond Plumbing in the future.

Tyler installed a new water heater for me the day after I called, arrived on time and got the job done. He quoted the price ahead of time and stuck to it, even though there were a couple of unforeseen challenges. Unlike so many other plumbers, he didn't add other items onto his bill. Straight forward, honest, and refreshing to work with. I would highly recommend him and will definitely be calling him for future plumbing services.

Scope was to replace my old water heater with a new 40 gal Bradford White tank and new hardware (including expansion tank and pressure reducing valve). I'm very happy with JEM's work quality and professionalism, and the price was also fair compared to more expensive bigger names in San Diego. They're respectful, courteous, and the type of company I look for when using Thumbtack. I'll recommend them to my friends and colleagues.

I enjoyed the process and seeing how well versed he is with the installation. I was worried to hire someone from this app. But I am glad i hired him The cost was very competitive and reasonable. The installation was seamless. We came across a jexk-up where the existing vent did not fit the new water heater, but due to his knowledge, he was able to rework the vent ductwork to fit it within the new water heater opening. I did not want to write this review until some time has gone by to make sure everything was fully ctioning properly. I would definitely recommend him for your next project and I am sure to reach out to him for my future projects.

I called Bob to get a quote for water heater pipe leak. After describing the problem, Bob gave me an quick estimate. He came out within couple hours later to fix the leak. While performing the repair, Bob called to let me know it would be an additional $30 to replace the shut off valve. The cost of the entire repair was exactly what he had quoted me. I was very happy with the service and repair. I would highly recommend Muller Plumbing Services.

Ruben provided outstanding service. He was prompt, extremely knowledgeable and professional. He honored the original quote, tested my water pressure and discovered that my regulator was not working. I had it replaced along with having a new water heater installed as the original reason I called. Ruben cleaned up when he finished the job. Excellent experience and performance. I will be sure to recommend him at All Time Plumbing and use again for plumbing issues.

I needed a plumber who was familiar with Smart Toilets - Brendan answered up to my request and is very knowledgeable in their installation. He was able to come out right away and do the job. He was also very honest and upfront with certain repairs that were needed that I wasn't aware of, which if they hadn't been done would have left me with lots of problems. I will definitely call on him again once we have more toilets to install - this guy is fantastic. If you need a great plumber to install your toilets, this is the man to call

First to respond on a Friday late afternoon. He's doing a job in Palm Springs. Tells me on his way back home that he will stop in Redlands to check on a rental unit with no hot water. Arrives at tenants home and calls me to tell me its a thermocouple gone bad in the water heater and that he has one on hand and will be able to repair the water heater. Completes repair and has a customer for life. Great job Luis!

What can I say about these guys, that all of the other extremely satisfied customers haven’t already said? I had a leaking 40 gallon water heater and looked at the various companies provided to me by Thumbtack. I was presently surprised to see so many positives reviews on R & R Plumbing on Yelp, so I sent them an email and received a call from Ryan R within 30 minutes. Ryan R asked if I could send him a picture of the water heater, which I told him I could not, but I explained that it was a 40 gallon propane water heater, located in the garage. I requested a quote to replace my 40 gallon propane water heater with 30 gallon propane water heater, because I thought that it would be less expensive, (retired on a fixed income). Ryan R told me that a 40 gallon replacement propane water heater would be less expensive than a 30 gallon water heater and that the cost to run a 40 gallon propane water heater over a 30 gallon propane water heater was very small. Ryan R said that he could fit it in on Saturday, but I said why don’t we just schedule it for next week, (it was still working but leaking). Ryan R said that he would schedule it for the first thing Monday morning, (7:00am – 8:00am). Ryan called at 7:10 am Monday morning and told me he would be there within 20 minutes. He arrived on time and replaced my 40 gallon propane water heater. He also spent his valuable time cleaning up the area around the old leaking water heater, prior to installing the new water heater. Ryan R was able to get the job done very quickly, (you could tell that he has done this a number of times before, ha, ha, ha) he was very efficient and the quality of his work was second to none. Thank You Ryan R for a job well done! Since he was already at my home, I asked him to provide me with a quote on three leaking outside hose bibs, which he did. We will be scheduling a time for him to repair those as well. I could not see calling anyone else for any of my plumbing needs and neither should you.

Tino was fantastic! He replaced my hot water heater yesterday and he was thorough, he kept us informed of what he was doing, he was patient while I asked a lot of questions. He definitely knows what he is doing. Lastly, he is really a nice person - very kind and polite. We are delighted. Tino is not only a highly skilled plumber, but he provides amazing service.

I used Brandon Baril to install a warranty replacement water heater. He went above and beyond to make things easy for me. A few years later I called Quick Water Heaters for a repair to the water heater pilot light. Brandon sent an employee who not only replaced the pilot light module, he made adjustments to insure the water heater worked at maximum efficiency. The employee-plumber seemed quite happy with his job.

Our water heater broke right before my husband Birthday party (it was leaking all over our garage!) so I quickly checked on Yelp for someone local with great reviews. Luckily, I was led right to Water Heater Online. I called and Plamen answered immediately and said he was finishing up a job and could be at my house within the hour. True to his word, Plamen showed up and saved our Birthday party! He removed our old broken water heater and installed a new one within a short couple of hours. Plamen was extremely friendly, empathetic, professional, responsive, clean and efficient. His customer service was excellent and the cost for his services was very fair. Thanks so much, Water Heater Online!

On May 5. 2016 S.G.T. Plumbing installed my Tankless Water Heater, Noritz EZTR40, replacing and removing my old 40 gal water heater. I found S.G.T. Plumbing on the Noritz website as a certified installer in my area. Steve showed up on time, in fact, he called me that he could come a day earlier than originally scheduled, that fit my schedule and it was a go. Steve was very knowledgeable about the installation and there seemed to be no unforeseen issues. He repaired the drywall where the stand for the old water heater was removed, which was helpful, so I didn't need to get someone else for that project. He also noticed tht I had a new gas hose in my garage that he could use and save me a little money I was pleased with the overall cost of the unit and the installation. I never told Steve, but I had had another quote from another company, and when they gave me the quote, my stomach turned inside out. I figured that the cost of a tankless would be more than a regular old fashioned water heater, and I also calculated that it would take one man less than a day to install. I was not having any kind of surgery, I wasn't entering a courtroom for a trial, I was having a tankless water heater installed!! The other company quoted me $1500 MORE than Steve to put in the exact same unit. Needless to say I was happy to find a hard working, honest young man, who was professional in every way, personable and FAIR. Also, my install comes with the first flush, in two years, for free, which was also a bonus for using SGT Plumbing!

I asked Martin to evaluate my water heater to determine whether it would benefit from service. After taking his own time to look at the unit at no cost, he let me know that his professional opinion was that the service would be a waste of my money. I very much appreciate his honesty and professionalism. Some people would try to sell you things you do not need, but Martin just wanted to do what was in my best interest. I appreciate that very much.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is it time to replace a water heater?

Although regular water heater maintenance and water heater repair may extend the life of your hot water heater, it won’t last forever. Most water heaters have a life expectancy of about 10 years. Many water heaters need to be replaced when they’re 8-12 years old — that’s when they start to show signs of fatal wear, such as leaking around the base of the tank. A water heater should be replaced when it fails to sufficiently heat water for the home; if your heater is operating erratically, check first for a blown fuse or a tripped breaker to make sure an electrical issue isn’t causing the problem. Another time to replace a water heater is when you want to upgrade to either a larger model or a more energy-efficient one.

Who can fix a water heater?

When a water heater stops running effectively, it’s best to hire a water heater repair professional to troubleshoot the problem. Whether it’s a plumbing company that offers water heater repair services or a provider specializing in water heater repair and maintenance, most repair companies offer same-day service as well as weekend and after-hours emergency calls. Usually, water heater repair professionals are experts in both electric and gas systems, as well as tank and tankless heaters, and can repair any kind of unit.

Why is my hot water not working?

The most common complaint among homeowners is that their hot water isn’t working — and the water heater is generally the culprit. Typically, it isn’t making the water as hot as you’d like it to be. When the water isn’t hot enough — or isn’t hot at all — run through this troubleshooting checklist for basic water heater repair tasks:

  • Make sure the power is connected to the heater, then reset the thermostat.
  • If it’s a gas water heater, make sure the pilot light is lit.
  • Raise the temperature setting on the thermostat.

If these stops don’t lead to hot water, it’s time to either check the heating element in an electric water heater or the burner unit and gas control valve in a gas-powered heater. A water heater repair and maintenance company can handle these repair jobs. However, if your hot water heater is eight years or older, it may be time to replace the water heater instead of repairing it.

How much do new water heaters cost?

The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
