Juan cleaned up my exterior plumbing. He ran new lines for my irrigation system and added a few hose bibs around the yard. The work was professional, clean and quick. Great attitude and pleasure to work with.

I'm very happy that I was connected with TJ and House to Home on Thumbtack. I recently bought a home and initially requested a quote for the installation of two new toilets. I then asked TJ about some additional work and we set up a few projects. TJ's prices are reasonable, his quality of work is excellent, he has a great attitude and he's extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of home repairs. He's helped me focus on items that need immediate attention because they affect the structure and integrity of the house and has also informed me about things to consider down the line. Things have gone so well that in addition to the toilets, he's installed a kitchen faucet, a cooktop and hood, which required extensive repairs of the venting, gas, and electric lines (former owner did a lot of shoddy stuff around the house). He's currently installing a new microwave above the wall oven and reframing the cabinet to accommodate it. The next project will involve some plumbing updates. TJ is in demand and has a busy schedule, but he's always very responsive, always shows up and leaves things cleaner than when he found them. He also goes above and beyond the call of duty when he sees a problem and fixes it just because. For example, he installed a new light fixture in the laundry room because the old one was an eyesore. Without hesitation, I highly recommend TJ for all of your home repair needs.

When we called Jim to repair our rusting and leaking water heater he came over in the afternoon,after completing work for another customer. He explained what was needed and why, and went to the store to get what we needed that afternoon so he could start first thing the next morning. The next morning he arrived when expected and we had a new water heater quickly. We live in a Mobil home and he made the necessary adjustments for us. Throughout the removal and replacement of our water heater he explained everything and answered all of our questions. Jim was very polite and enjoyable to learn from. He lives nearby and can respond quickly. I will definitely recommend him for plumming needs. He helped with another plumbing problem also, that I almost forgot about, with no extra charge. He also cost less than all other professionals. I have great trust in him and will definitely call him for other plumbing needs that we may have in the future. Thank you very much Jim.

Efrain communicates well, up front, no games, install was professional, and doesn't try to upsell. I did want something extra during the install and Efrain was very willing to accommodate, thanks. I paid him for the extra labor but it's worth it. He and helper struggled a bit getting this large and heavy 75 gallon water heater up to it's location which is pretty tight. So a specialized lifter would seem to make sense to not dent and scratch up the water heater. After getting garage back in order, I took a shower. Best shower I've had since moving into this house. Water pressure was noticeably stronger, hot water stayed very hot after a long shower and didn't creep down at all. I think pressure is higher because more hot water flow and means I can have more cold water too.

My in-wall shower suddenly would not fully shut off. I thought that something in the valves in the wall would have to be replaced. Of the several plumbers that replied, Jesus gave me what sounded like a reasonable quote for the estimated work to be completed, fully disclosing that if the work turned out to be bigger than expected, the rate would be proportionally higher. Jesus had great communication, quickly responding via calls and/or texts. He arrived ahead of schedule the following day. He was polite, professional, and did not hesitate to answer all the questions that I had. He quickly saw that the shower valves needed to be replaced, and reassured me that this could be done without opening up the walls. He fixed the problem as agreed upon, and even helped me with a little side problem I had with an outdoor hose bib. I found Jesus to be punctual, have a good work ethic, and I would recommend Jesus for future plumbing jobs.

Alex showed up ready to work. We took some time to discuss what the final result should look like and then he went to town on an outdoor project on a very hot summer day. I appreciate he took aesthetics into account in places that I hadn’t thought about. He was also sensitive to how long certain things would take and let me know in advance he was trying to save me hours. He also gave me some advice on a small plumbing problem. He was thoughtful about cleaning up, though one piece of critical feedback is he left some refuse on the tree lawn which I had to put into a bin. I’d definitely hire him again. Attaching a photo of the cage he made to protect our tomatoes from the rats. He matched the wood frame with our existing raised beds.

Tony went above and beyond to fix several issues with extremely polite and professional service. He added a regulator to the house, located and fixed a sprinkler leak, and replaced a broken valve in the backyard. His price was perfect, he responded within minutes and fixed everything the same day (on a Sunday). Honestly this was the best experience we've had when dealing with a plumbing issue, and from now on will not deal with anyone else except Tony. Highly Recommend!

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.
