Arisel responded quickly to my request for help on Thanksgiving Day when my water heater went out. It wasn't fixable but he had a new one installed before I got home from work the next day. I am very grateful for his speedy dealing with my problem.

Simply put, Jose was wonderful to work with! I came home to work to find the unpleasant surprise of a badly leaking water heater. After a little research I turned it off and determined that after its 18 year life, it needed to be replaced. After putting up my request on Thumbtack, Jose was very quick to respond and gave me some great options on how to proceed. Not only did he pick up a new water heater for me on the way, but he stopped at TWO different Home Depots to find the best one in my price range. Not to mention, this was done relatively late in the evening. His flexibility was great. Once he arrived he was very thorough and professional. He quickly installed the water heater and made sure that everything was working as designed. He even followed up the next morning to see if there was anything else that was needed. A+ overall, and I will definitely be using Jose again if something should arise with my plumbing elsewhere.

Ricardo has been great! First he installed our gas dryer. Arrived on time, finished his works quickly and handed over the receipt of materials he picked up at Home Depot. The following week he built a platform in our garage and finished the job quicker than expected. Again clearly detailing his material purchases. Highly recommended!

Ray and Gary are highly recommended. They worked on a number of projects as I remodelled a unit: - rerouted all the plumbing in kitchen - moved location of hot water heater - added sink to a toilet room - rerouted gas line Ray is everything you could want in a professional: great communication, clear bid, trustworth, punctual, and most importantly, does really good work.

Did a great job with replacing our water heater. Was extremely thorough, focused on doing the best job possible. We ran into a few unforeseen leakages since our water heater was quite old but he came back the next day and helped replace those parts as well without other extra charges. In general, I felt that he did outstanding work.

We woke up on a Saturday morning to our garage full of water. On top of the clean-up and worries about water damage we had no hot water - no dishes, no showers, no baths, no laundry. As a mom of two young children I couldn’t wait until Tuesday to have a new water heater installed Aqua Stat responded with an estimate, availability and a plan. Our engineer was on time, quickly assessed the pipe and platform needs and got to work. He worked for 4 hours straight and past 5pm to get us hot water. True household hero!

BJ was professional as well as quick... my water heater was fixed within a few hours of first contact. He replaced the thermal coupler and I paid hundreds of dollars less some of the other quotes for the same part. Thank you, BJ for getting our hot water running again. It's nice to take a hot shower! I would definitely use him for other projects in the future.

Ralph was a real pleasure to work with and I’d hire him again for future projects. He was fast on the bid and was able to pickup a new water heater, install it, and haul my old one away. All in all, the job took a few hours and he knew what to do every step of the way. I especially appreciated how communicative, punctual, and honest Ralph was throughout the entire experience.

Scott went above and beyond to finish our job. It was complicated because of our heater installation situation. Needed a bunch of valves etc, that he obtained and made it happen. Would happily hire him again!

Our hot water heater was 24 yrs old and it could never hold a hot shower for very long. Denver Lim came in and promptly and quickly diagnosed the problem. He recommended we replace it immediately and he came back the next day and installed a new heater in record time. Amazing service and professionalism. Really happy with the work.

I hired Stephen to add a gas valve for a dryer install. Stephen was exceptionally responsive (answering my questions ahead of the appointment & keeping me updated on his ETA) and once on the job he was a real professional. I had just moved into a new house and needed a few other things looked at and he was very accommodating and fair on price. I'd highly recommend Stephen!

Max arrived early to appointment and got things done professionally. Required no supervision and knew exactly what he needed to do to replace our 40g water heater with a bigger 50g HE version. When we ran into a problem, Max again stepped up to the plate and took care of it. Would definitely hire him again.

Very experienced and professional. Got our gas line extended for new dual fuel range. Great quality work. Also got a permit from the city and they knew the CA plumbing codes. Inspection was quick and easy ( inspector signed off in just 5 mins ). Planning to get all my future work done by them. Highly recommend for anyone.

I have a relatively complex radiant heating system with a circulating hot water system as well. The work I needed done was some straightforward plumbing but all plumbers I'd reached out to turned me down due to the radiant system. Clay and Mark replied straight away and came as soon a they could. Not only were they unfazed by the system, they fixed my problem, showed me how I could have done it and then stuck around to make sure all the components were working correctly. They were professional, helpful and did excellent work. I will definitely use them again.

C plumbing was great! It took a couple tries to find a coordinating time for C to come install a kitchen faucet and soap dispenser due to my hectic work schedule but Cam was patient and accommodating. When we finally settled on a time, he and his partner showed up on time, and we're quick, efficient, and friendly. Our new kitchen faucet is exactly what we wanted and would recommend C plumbing for any plumbing jobs.

When the pilot light in my water heater went out, Damiano was able to quickly diagnose and replace the faulty thermalcouple. He did an excellent job, and I would highly recommend his work.

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.

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 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.

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

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

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

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
