Dennis and Michael were absolutely fabulous. They came out and fixed the water heater and were very knowledgeable. Dennis was straight up with me about the unit, and what to do. When the job became a little bigger, Dennis took care of it! Thank you- I now have a plumber of choice!

A Better Plumbing Company was Wonderful. It was a Friday and the previous company that was scheduled to arrive, cancelled on me at the time that they were to show up. I had been told the pilot light needed replacing. I had company arriving any minute. I called two of the companies listed and Ken was the only one that said he could come. I gave him the part number that needed to be replaced. He purchased it and was here a half hour before the time he said he'd be here. Him and his partner Cody arrived, replaced the pilot light and it wasn't the problem. I needed a NEW water heater. He called his supplier, they had one, he went and picked it up. Cody returned with it and installed it perfectly!! Ken returned to finalize the installation. The SAVED THE DAY!!!! I will recommend A Better Plumbing Company to anyone that needs Great Service and total Professionalism.

Scot came for the job on time, he worked with the owner to get the job done. The gutters has not been clears for a long time, and took Scot 3 hours. He spent another hour tried to clear the drain but need to come back for it. He only charged me for gutters job, not the drains. Scot did a fine job, even help me relit the water heater pilot light. I recommend Scot.

Todd did a couple of little projects such as installing new fixtures in the bathroom shower, under the bathroom sink fixtures, and water line into the refrigerator. This allowed me to evaluate his work for future bigger projects. Todd was timely, professional, and did a great job. I was very happy with his work.

Clint is awesome! From the first contact to repairing and then replacing our tankless water heater, working with him was so different than working with typical plumbers, HVAC techs, handymen, etc. He is one of those people with positive energy, which he combines with a tremendous amount of knowledge across virtually all aspects of building and fixing. His pricing is very fair, and he does whatever is needed to successfully finish the project and make sure the client is happy. I will definitely be calling Clint first for just about everything I need.

Steve's response and arrival time was excellent. He was honest, knowledgeable, very helpful and very diligent as he worked on our problem. He did a very thoughtful job and it looks like he took care of our water leak. So far the problem seems to be corrected. I would most certainly hire Steve again.

What can I say, he showed up he told how much it was, and he even charged me what he said from the beginning. After all was said and done I couldn't even tell if he did any work(aside of the new water heater). He left no mess. A strait forward no B.S. kinda guy. I'd definitely call him again. He just gets stuff done compared to the other companies that just beat around the Bush with prices.

Very good experience working with Patrick. Had an emergency situation with broken water pipe - he responded very quickly, gave me a great price and was on site as long as it was required to make everything right. The task was not trivial but was done pretty quickly. Would recommend Patrick to anybody and will use his services in a future if there is a necessity. Thank you Patrick!

Had my whole house repiped from galvanized steel to pex/copper with water softener install. Very competitive pricing if you’ve got enough quotes. Everything works as it should with no leaks. Definitely would recommend.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
