I hired Casiano's to replace my kitchen faucet. The faucet was making noise and then water spray got clocked. I had already purchased a replacement faucet that was recommended by my HOA, so I just needed someone to come and replace it. I wasn't able to be present, but my renters liked that setup was friendly and professional. When I arrived to inspect the work, I found everything as good as new. I also appreciated Casiano's flexibility to accept payment via PayPal. This allowed me to not bother my renters with payments, inspect the work afterwards and pay without scheduling further visits.

Rudy was very personable and did his work in an expedient manner (with a co-worker). After the job was done though he forgot to turn up the water heaters after re-lighting them. I had complaints from every customer that that was not done.

When my water heater stopped working on a Saturday afternoon, BJ was prompt in his response and came to my home that evening. He quickly diagnosed and fixed the problem for the agreed upon price. We would definitely use him again or recommend him to our friends and family.

Ralph helped us out this morning after a frantic early morning call. He talked me through testing out the fix and ultimately I chose to have him swing by which he did and tackle it. He was super helpful, friendly and I would highly recommend him!

Gerardo replaced both mine and my neighbor's water heaters in our condo. We had a unique situation with the configuration and size of our units, and Gerardo was able to identify a solution for us when two previous plumbers could not complete the work. The installation was done exactly as he had scoped, and Gerardo was incredibly helpful in helping us understand our choices to replace the units. I couldn't be happier with the job, and I highly, highly recommend Gerardo if you are in need of plumbing services. Thanks again, Gerardo!

I used Max when I was a building manager in San Francisco for 8 years. He was always fast, courteous, and professional. In 8 years, everything he did was perfect. Water heaters, sewer replacement, gas pipe, tankless water heaters, copper pipe, he did it all at a good price. The only time I was mad at Max was when he went on vacation and I had to hire another plumber. That's when I realized how good I had it with Max. He really is the best I've ever worked with.

Danny Jimenez was able to easily clear our clogged kitchen sink drain. He was very friendly and worked quickly after offering me a couple of fair quotes to choose from. We are considering a water heater upgrade in the future, and we'll likely call on Oak Plumbing to do the Job. I would certainly recommend Oak Plumbing to anyone seeking help with their Water Systems.

Don't let the lack of reviews fool you! We needed to replace our water heater and Felipe was there the same day. He inspected the water heater and connections. He gave an estimate and proceeded to work. He drained the old tank in the grass. He told exactly when the water would be shutoff and when to do the "water test." It was a clean installation. He gave me a receipt and I thanked him! Felipe did an excellent job and I'm glad I took a chance and called him.

I am very satisfied with the quality of the work and the services provided by Omar. He was very polite in responding to my needs and questions. He offered a very complete service to meet the plumbing needs for me. The job was to replace the old shower head, faucet, spout and valve for a bathtub with a new set of Delta parts that I supplied. His services included replacement of water (cold and hot) pipes with new copper ones that will reduce some problems in the future. I anticipate future needs in hot water heater for my house. I would call Omar first for my plumbing needs in the future.

Our water heater started leaking and the input valve wasn't working properly so we had to shut down water to the whole house. With 2 toddlers that's not an amazing situation to be in. I put my request here at 10am, they were at my house in the afternoon for a quote. They helped us figure out whether we should go for gas or electric, tank or tankless, and by 6pm we had hot water in the house again. They were also super nice both on the phone and in person. The price quoted was a few hundreds under what others quoted for the same equipment and work.

    Ryan with Hermes Plumbing Service showed up and replaced my water heater. He was prompt, professional, and very knowledgeable. He found that the previous heater was not installed to code, and he made the necessary modifications to bring the new heater up to code! He knew what he was doing! I would definitely use this company in the future!

    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.
