I called Manny on Tuesday afternoon, he arrived in the evening to assess the problem. He showed up on Wednesday morning early with all material necessary to replace a hot water heater. Was finished in 2 hours and we have hot water once again. Nice guy too.

Cesar was very professional and explained everything he was going to do. He asked before he removed pieces of hardware that were no longer viable. He changed out our kitchen faucet, cleared a drain and was able to get a hot water faucet working again after a year. I would highly recommend All In One Plumbing & Drains...they do it all.

Frank came and diagnosed the problem with the water heater. Alas, I needed a new hot water heater, he recommended the brand I should get, purchased it, and then returned to my house to install it. He had to remove the old one prior to installing the new one. His father worked with him to remove the old water heater, and the new one was installed. He worked diligently on the installation. So far, everything is working well!!

These guys were excellent! Prompt, professsional, knowledgable and friendly. I couldn't have asked for a better service. I had a leak in my hot water heater. They replaced the water heater, fixed my central heat problem and gave me a great quote on getting central air. I will be using them again.

First and foremost I'd like to thank M&N Water treatment System for coming right away to my house and installed my Water Softener and Reverses Osmosis unit, connected to my hot/cold drinking water machine and hooked up to the refrigerator's ice maker. Woww! With them I got my brand new Water softener and Reverses Osmosis for only $1950 and I got the exact same system that I had been leasing with a previous company, which I had been paying $125 a month for almost 7 years because I couldn't afford buying from them. My previous company was selling me just the water softener it self for $2000 plus labor, materials and taxes fees. Thanks M&N I saved a lot of money and Carlos did a amazing job and Will continue to take care of the maintance as needed. Carlos was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable and a very humble technician. I truly recommend them!

I had Isidoro fix my shower. We had terrible hot water pressure. He cut the drywall and replaced the valve and put up a new piece of drywall and patched it up nice. The shower works amazing now. He also did a couple little other projects for us. Isidoro seems like a good honest dude and I would definitely bring him back for future plumbing needs. Thank you!!!!

I can’t speak more highly of George. We had an emergency leak and George came immediately on a Sunday at 7am to assess the problem. But before he arrived he stopped by Home Depot and bought some parts that he thought may fix the problem based on our conversation over the phone. Unfortunately, the parts did not solve the issue so he went back to the Home Depot near my house to purchase something more precise now that he has actually seen what the issue was. That didn’t work either so we had to shut off the hot water from the entire house until he could get to a specialty plumbing store the next day which was a Monday. He would’ve gone immediately had the store been open on a Sunday. A couple of hours passed and I noticed water coming out of the tub and called George to notify him. George then comes back to my house immediately to fix the problem. It turns out my plumbing is a bit old and faulty so we had to shut off the main water supply to the entire house as opposed to just the hot water. Monday comes and the no specialty plumbing store had my part as it had to be special ordered from the manufacturer which takes 5 business days for it to arrive. Because of George’s persistence he was able to hunt the part down at a not so nearby plumbing store and come back to the house and saved us. Before knowing all these headaches and running back and forth would transpire George sent me a quote and stuck to it without me asking which is refreshing in comparison to what I have dealt with in the past. Thank you George for your integrity and hard work. I apologize for taking you away from your wife and kid on a Sunday but I am very grateful that you came to our rescue. You will be my go to guy from now on for all my plumbing needs.

At CPR Plumbing , James Clifton runs a fine company. First off, he gave us a good bid. On the job day James showed up on time, went to work, and even ran to the hardware store to get parts we did not have to complete the job. We had a toilet that needed repair, a kitchen faucet that needed replacement, a patio hose water outlet that needed replacing, and two drain pipes with leaks. James took care of all of these plumbing jobs promptly, with a smile...

I have used Clark Plumbing services many times. Brandon, the owner of the business, once changed a water heater in my house that gave out. I had not had to deal with this issue in the past and therefore, did not know a whole lot about the various water heaters available. Brandon didn't just give me what he wanted me and then charge me. Instead, he talked me through the different types and sizes most appropriate for the size of my house. He also discussed the different qualities and prices of water heaters available, allowing me to make an informed decision. The information he provided actually gave me the opportunity to upgrade to a better quality product and size, and yet choose from good quality products that were still cost effective. And this was really noticeable when my family members all took showers and we still had hot water. It was nice! Brandon also converted the plumbing in my home to copper pipes. What a difference! I loved it! Furthermore, a neighbor of mine was told that she needed plumbing services that would cost a lot of money. I referred her to Clark Plumbing for an estimate. Brandon told her what she needed in order to handle the issue, and it turns out it was way less than what she had been quoted by the previous plumber. He was able to fix her plumbing issue for a lot less money. I have come to trust him and his services, which I value as extremely important. He is super honest and doesn't charge for services that do not need to be done. Since I have used Clark Plumbing services several times, I have gotten to know him a little better. He's a friendly and funny guy. I learned that Brandon started out doing plumbing work with his father when he was a teenager. He now has many years of experience providing plumbing services and from my experience with him, really knows what he is doing. I found out that he has worked both in installing plumbing into new dwellings and buildings, as well as providing plumbing services for those who need help, like (on occasion) me. Brandon has done an excellent job with the plumbing services he has done for me and honestly, he is the first person I refer people to when they tell me they have a plumbing issue.

American Castles Mike To the RESCUE!!! The water heater at my rental property burst on a Friday afternoon causing some major damage to the house. The renters were furious because their items got damaged and the house wasn't inhabitable after that. On the inside, the bathroom wall and under stairway closet were all soaking wet and drywall/carpet/padding had to be removed immediately to prevent mole build up. On the garage side where the water heater located, the entire wall was destroyed. so I called my home insurance who provided me with their preferred plumber who quoted an additional $540 out of pocket on top of what the insurance was going to cover just so he can bring up the water heater installation to code! He told me that it will take him 1+ week to order the water heater (duh...get one from Home Depot take only 1hr...which is what Mike did) and that he can install a temporary water heater and will charge $137/wk! He also referred me to a water damage restoration company which I was not too happy with either. Since it was an emergency and I went with that company. They came in and ripped out all the wet drywall without caring for any molding; especially for garage doors and closet doors! It seemed like what ever the water heater didn't damage, they did. They also broke my water heater intake shut off valve. damage the water heater over flow copper pipe. All I can say is I will not use them again! Back to the plumber, something was smelling fishy about his quote and so I called and questioned this plumber. His response was "Well, I will need to flush out the gas line and calibrate your water pressure...upgrade to the new California safety quote...put in earthquake straps...install new vent line since the new water heater nowaday don't use the old vent line!". I was not convinces so I started to Google for good local contractor and AMERICAN CASTLES (Mike Tay is the owner) came up from Thumtack along with few others from other websites. I contacted them and they came in and provided me quotes. Mike was the last one I contacted. He arrived within 30min. He checked out the damages and explained to me what needs to get done sequentially to get everything back in proper operation for my tenants. Mike is very knowledgeable and very patient in explaining things. I told him what the plumber had said, he laughed and told me the whole thing was a rip off and a scam! Another crock of bull**** and advised me against it. He told me to call my insurance company to inquire about using other plumber. Sure enough I was offered the "cash out" option which I didn't even know was available. I took that option and went with Mike for the repair. Mike knows how important it is for my tenants to get the hot water running again once the water damage restoration company completed the clean up/dry out the area (took 1 week). As soon as that company removed their equipment, Mike had his crew come in the next day (Saturday) to repair the garage dry wall and finished the installation of the new water heater and brought it up to code on safety on Sunday! He even added the water pan and installed drain pipe for me. I didn't even know such a thing exists (talk about quality...he treats it like repairing his own home!). The best part is his charge for the whole job including new water heater, earthquake straps, valve, drain pan, vent and new connection is far way less than what that plumber was going to charge me. I loved the fact he took the time to show me how things should be done up to code and what works for my situation instead of just giving a price and walking away. He did an awesome job! Unfortunately my landlord insurance's deductible was so high, I asked Mike to give me a quote for fixing the damage in the garage and inside the house. Mike's quote was very competitive and the best part is he is always willing to work with me knowing my situation (thx Mike). My bathroom paint is 16 years old so it was a challenge to match the paint for the new wall. After only quoting me for painting a small wall inside the bathroom, Mike decided on his own to paint the entire bathroom without charging for it. Now that what I call TAKING PRIDE IN YOUR WORK AND STICKING TO YOUR WORD!!! My summary is, Mike successfully completed the entire job and installation in four days. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone and will definitely be using and referring him to everyone I know.

My hot water heater sprung a leak. I called Jeff Morey Service and he and his partner came out and gave me an estimate. They explained what the job would require and what my options were. We agree on a price and they completed the job in a very timely and professional manner. They even cleaned up after the job was done. I was more that satisfied with the job done and I would recommend Jeff to anyone who wants a quality job done at a competitive price. Thanks Jeff.

Our pantry ceiling collapsed from a flood of water coming from our attic. Jay quickly identified the problem as a plugged condensate line from the attic air conditioning unit. Jay flushed the line quickly and charged a reasonable fee. Jay also referred us to the restoration contractor who dried our pantry and replaced the damaged insulation, drywall, and ceiling. I would definitely hire Jay again. In fact, we did hire Jay to replace our hot water heater and water pressure regulator valve and turn-off valve leading into our house.

My longtime favorite plumber retired. I naturally looked to Thumbtack to see if there was someone I could count on. My business has 20 toilets and many many opportunities for plumbing visits. I need someone to trust. Jeremy and Mike came out to meet with me and as we were walking my business we found a toilet running. Mike just opened the tank and did some plumber stuff and got it all set! I showed them some stuff we need to address and they sent me an estimate in a couple of hours. I'm happy with the way they do business.

Our hot water heater was close to 16 years old and it finally went out. I don’t know anything about hot water heaters. The technician gave me a lot of useful information. They changed out surprisingly quick and I had running hot water within a few hours. I definitely recommend.

Our kitchen hot water wouldn't turn on, and our reverse osmosis filter quit working. Joe scheduled an appointment within one day of contacting us through Thumbtack, which is GREAT. He quickly diagnosed the problems and had the hot water working quickly. We decided to replace the outdated filter with a modern model, which he obtained and installed the next day. He was professional, honest, and quick! His fees were VERY competitive, fair, and budget friendly. Highly Recommended!

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
