Thank you Manny for looking out for me and my family as the smell and back up of sewerage into our home was extremely dangerous. Manny performed an inspection using his sewer camera. He explained to me what we were seeing and why we were seeing what we saw and at the same time explaining to me what needed to be done to fix the sewer pipe. He explained it in such a way that it all made sense, the connections and all. After the inspection, I gave Manny the okay to begin the work and thank God that he was able to send his crew to our home within the hour. The work was guaranteed, done fast, including the 10 foot ditch that had to be dug. Manny and his crew were extremely nice, quick, affordable and reliable. No more stinky smells and backups for us!! For all of your plumbing needs, I highly recommend Allstar Rooter! Thank you Manny!

All in One Plumbing & Drains, Inc. Went over and beyond the call of duty on a complex job to save us from having to buy a new unit. We live in a mobile home so Oscar had to deal with variation of issues from access to ordering special parts & returning. We were given a excellent price & discount despite him having to return a few times. I will definitely recommend them to my friends & anyone who needs a good, honest and professional plumber! Many thanks for your persistence & help! Angela

I decided to help my mom with her kitchen sink by contacting A&O Plumbing, George sent a direct quote and had a chance to talk to him about the problem, he requested a picture to better asses what tools he might need, as well as to have an idea of what he might need to do upon arrival. He was punctual and very professional and amicable from the start. We thought it was the hot water line that wasn't working but he was honest and told my mom, a new fawcett would solve the problem. He even suggested a brand that has lifetime warranty in case of a future need. The new fawcett was installed and my mom is happy with the results. Thank you George!

I used to work at Clark Plumbing years ago it was a great experience working with them. I learned a lot in the two years I was over there they're very hard workers and always on point and the best thing is it felt like you're working with the family and quality work. Though I moved on I've still use them for other jobs I've had for family and friends and most of all no one could beat their prices. Nico S

Tim was very professional and I appreciated that he also took the time to answer all my curious questions. I needed a new gas cooktop installed and he arrived right on time and had the job done in a very short time. He even brought along an assistant which made the process even smoother. I love my new cooktop, and I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again anytime I have plumbing work to do.

Sasha was very professional. My sink was plugged up on a Friday evening and the landlord is out. Sasha showed up within 5 minutes and he took care of the problem. I never had to call him back because the issue was resolved. Thank you so much Sasha for your responsiveness, professionalism, and punctuality. I would definitely call on you again if I ever have any plumbing issues. Thank you, Day

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What are plumbers and what do they do?

Plumbers are skilled professionals who are trained to install and maintain pipes and systems for drinking water, sewage and drainage. They usually have trained through four- to five-year training programs, which include apprenticeships, via trade schools and community colleges. Plumbers’ areas of expertise typically go beyond pipes to include mathematics, blueprint reading, plumbing codes and water distribution. They handle plumbing emergencies, such as broken pipes or clogged drains, and install and maintain everything from a new piping system to a replacement faucet. Plumbers also know how to install bathtubs and showers, toilets, water heaters and dishwashers. Plumbers may work on residential or commercial sites, sometimes designing and laying out a pipe system during construction.

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.

How much does it cost to install a hot water heater?

You’ll know when it’s time to install a new water heater. Water heater installation costs average between $360 and $780 nationally, with rates increasing depending on the project. The total project cost will be higher when you include the cost of the heater itself. Select your new water heater based on the number of occupants in your home and the number of gallons of capacity you’ll need. Installation costs can vary based on the type of water heater you are removing and the type you are installing, any necessary repairs, regional cost of labor, and whether disposal of the old heater is included. Natural gas water heaters retail on average between $650 and $900 for standard models. Electric water heaters range between $300 and $700 for standard models. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $250 and $700 for standard models. Tankless gas water heaters retail on average between $200 and $1,300.

A company may charge approximately $1,000 to replace a 50-gallon tank-style electric water heater (not including any upgrades required by building codes). Replacing a gas-powered water heater might cost $1,100 (not including code upgrades). Some companies roll the disposal of an old heater into the overall cost of the new water heater installation. Other professionals charge an additional removal fee that can range from $35 to $150.

Why is the water in my house not getting hot?

If the water in your house is not getting hot, it may be time for water heater repair. Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400, depending on the problem and materials. Competent homeowners may also be able to try DIY fixes, whether they have a traditional gas or electric water heater or a tankless gas or electric heater. Troubleshooting the different issues that can arise with each of the styles requires some knowledge of how they operate and what red flags to look out for. For a natural gas water heater, the first step is to check whether the pilot light has gone out. It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s directions if you want to relight it yourself. If you smell gas, stop everything and call your gas company — the smell could signal a dangerous gas leak. If your household’s water is not getting hot enough, you can try increasing the temperature on the water heater’s front dial above the standard setting of 120 degrees; for safety, always turn off electricity to the unit before adjusting temperatures. If you keep running out of hot water, your household may simply need a higher-capacity water heater, so consider upgrading. Quick professional fixes include replacing the thermostat or heating elements and cleaning and repairing the thermocouple.

How do you find a good plumber?

Whether you need a plumber to perform drain repair, install a new fixture, or replace rusty pipes, you need to make sure you hire someone reliable who will finish your job on time and within budget. Start by asking the plumbers on your short list these questions:

  • What is the total cost? Make sure your estimate includes materials and labor. Find out whether the plumber will be providing the materials and whether you’re being charged an hourly rate (which is variable) or a flat fee.
  • Is removal and cleanup included in the job? Some plumbers leave behind old parts, while others include the cleanup in the cost.
  • Is the work guaranteed? Find out whether the work (as well as the parts or fixtures) are guaranteed under a warranty.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
