We hired Jose and his team to work on our newly purchased gym facility. Hands down, Jose and his team are the best contractors I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. His work is extremely detail oriented, his pricing is very fair and reasonable, he's very flexible with last minute changes. His team worked day and night to meet our opening day deadline and he always kept in constant contact with us regarding updates and was always happy to provide solutions when we were stuck on certain issues or color schemes. He did our flooring, electrical, paint, plumbing, and so much more. Hiring him will be the best decision you ever make. Thank you Jose!

Jem Plumbing repaired faulty shut-off valves in my kitchen and laundry room. I called the morning of and Juan was on-site by early afternoon. Great communication (called, texted when en-route, arrived as scheduled) work ethic and high-quality service. They definitely take the time to do things right. I highly recommend and would use again.

I called Isaac and he responded to me right away. After few minutes he arrives in my doorstep and did start working on my leaking faucet in my bathroom. He did great on the job and yadaaa!! Leak no more! Plus which i didnt expect him to do is he did an extra mile in fixing the insinkerator in my kitchen and did troubleshoot my dishwasher as well. He even did the extra work for free. He did a lot for a reasonable price. in fact I have hired him already for my next project. Surely, i will recommend him for all your plumbing needs. Thank you Isaac!!

Chad came out to address a shower that was lacking both pressure and hot water. He communicated well prior to arrival, and when he showed up he was professional, timely, and explained the issues we were facing. He corrected the mistakes of previous plumbers and demonstrated the completion of the job. We will save Blue Sky's information for any future plumbing needs.

The drain cleaning work performed by Integrity Rooter & Plumbing SD, was excellent. Our kitchen drain was stopped up, and, in order to clean the line, the plumber first used a 50 electric snake. As this was insufficient to clear the line, he graduated to the 100' big gun snake which did the trick. Overall, a 10 out of 10! Highly recommended.

I hired Shawn to run a new copper water line for our fridge ice maker. The water source and fridge are on opposite sides so he had to go in the walls, up through the attic, and back down another wall. He also cut out some cracked and corroded pipe and replaced it with abs. He cleaned up after himself. Price was reasonable. Availability was good. Will probably hire him again later to do some other part of our remodel

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.
