Don came out to repair, replace both of our faucets in the upstairs master bedroom. Don arrived on time as agreed. Don first determined the cause of the water leak by running water, then repairing the leak we were having. Then Don replaced the two faucets, drains for new ones. After the job was done, Don ran more water to make sure the leak stopped and everything was functional. The charge was also very reasonable. We were very happy with Don and hope to make contact with him again in the future.

Mr. Pettibone was absolutely great. He arrived on time, worked the entire three hours, and did an exceptional job on repairing some wood that had rotted away under my kitchen sink. His price was exceptional as well. I would highly recommend Mr. Pettibone and will use him again!

John recently did some work at my home. He replaced some wood rot under my floor and did any excellent job replacing the wood and then matching up the linoleum. you can't even tell that it had been torn up and replaced. His work is meticulous and he is very tidy and cleaned up when finished with job. He also did some painting and repaired a gate that had come loose from a concrete wall. I would recommend him without reservation. He is very professional and knowledgeable. He's got 30 years plus of experience so knows what he's doing. Oh yes, his rates are reasonable too.

David's work was very good. He put in a water faucet, water fountain and a couple smaller spots under a new sink. I wish he had called me back about a problem I was having with the water fountain. It likely is a worn out part and I would have paid more but was left a bit hanging and with a leaking fountain.

Alex is a team player who always pitched in and helped his fellow workers. There was not anything he would not try to do. The first day I hired him, he immediately climbed on our roof and repaired the leak. Alex shows excellent customer service and stepped in any department that I asked him to cover. He was always on time even though he had to drive 30 miles each day to get to work. Area that needs improvement, Alex needs to work on his writing and communication skills. He would be an asset to anyone that hires him.

Reginald was right on the dot on time. He is very professional and knows his trade. He was able to explain what was happening with our well water, pump driven, system that runs thru our house, in terms that we could understand. We are keeping his contact info should we need any plumbing related services in the future.

    When the pump on our well quit working we immediately called Pollack and Son's for help. Jack arrived at our location, replaced the faulty pump and had us up and running in no time at all. We recommend Pollack and Son's for your "water problems". They do a professional job in a timely manner with a friendly 'don't worry about a thing' attitude. It doesn't get much better than that!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    How much do new water heaters cost?

    The cost of a new water heater depends largely on the type and size of the heater. The average national cost for a new water heater installation including a 40- to 50-gallon tank is $350-$780. Most homes don’t need larger tanks, but they are available — for a price. The average difference between a 50-gallon tank and a 75-gallon tank (the next most common size) ranges from $400 to $600. Hundred-gallon tanks are also available, and they can cost double or triple the price of a 50-gallon tank from the same manufacturer. New water heaters tend to be far more energy-efficient, so they can cut energy costs; homeowners may also be eligible for a new water heater rebate from their local utility company.

    Typically, tankless water heaters, which heat water only when you need it, cost more but can save about 25 percent of annual water heating costs, on average. They also lose only 5 percent of their energy compared with a tank unit’s 30 percent energy loss. Note, too, that a water heater with a tank has a life expectancy of 10 years, while tankless units generally last about twice as long.

    The final expense to consider is a possible disposal fee to get rid of the old water heater; some companies include it in the price, while others charge an average of $35-$150.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
