Jose installed a new water heater. He did a great job, was reasonable in price. What I really appreciated is that he is a great communicator, told me exactly what was needed, what it would cost, how much he would charge. I would hire him again in an instant - and will for future jobs.

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 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.

Water leak in front yard. Miguel came by and checked it out and found it not to be sprinkler leak but a main water pipe. He called to inform me and gave me a fair estimate and even suggested I get other quotes. He did the repairs with a co-worker who was also good. They had to remove part of my cement walkway since the pipe was underneath. He let me know that before re-cementing the area dry. Miguel was very personable and explained more than others would have. My neighbor grabbed on to him for handyman work and she was very pleased.

Chris did a great job replacing my garbage disposal. He was quick, professional, and reasonably priced. He is a CA licensed and insured plumber which was not the case with the other bidders on this job. Water damage is so expensive that you just have to use a licensed and insured plumber.

Nick repaired some water damage in the floor of my laundry room and kitchen. He tore out the floor, repaired the damage in the subfloor, leveled the floor out and put down new vinyl flooring. He also installed a new water heater and dishwasher for me (which is what was leaking causing the water damage). He was very responsive, answered all of my questions, kept in touch, worked efficiently, and the flooring looks great! I recommend him highly.

I had leaks in my kitchen sink from the main faucet, refrigerator water line, and water filter line. All of the leaks were related to a bad install of a garbage disposal a few months earlier by another plumber I will never use again. Chad at CET saved the day. He figured out the issues and fixed them--no double talk and theories. I wish I had known about him before and glad he was the one I called to fix all of my kitchen plumbing disasters. His prices were very fair and he had to make two service calls to finish everything--showed up and followed up. My uncle was a master plumber, so I could tell Chad knew what he was doing, from choosing best solutions/parts and the quality of his work. I have seen some incredibly "creative" inexperienced plumbers in my day, so it's a relief that I finally have someone I can call on again. I highly recommend him.

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.

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.
