My upstairs bathroom's shower plumbing had let go and soaked the downstairs. I had taken down the sheetrock and cut all the old piping out (copper and PVC) I had repiped the PVC myself, however, I had never worked with copper. I called Harry in to repipe the upstairs shower and install shut-off values and the shower mixing valve. While my old house gave him a good fight (tight spaces, hard to reach for soldering) He did a great job and everything is working perfectly. Will use again, We are already talking about the next project!

Eddie came out to service my clogged line (caused by baby wipes) within an hour after calling him. He cleared the clog and was very friendly yet professional in the process. He even gave us a sheet referencing things we should not put into the toilet or drains. I have a big family, so his fast response was much appreciated. If anything else ever happens to the plumbing, there's only one call I need to make, and that's to Eddie the Roto King.

Shane was very prompt and was very knowledgeable. He found a serious mistake we made with our plumbing which would have cost us quite a bit to repair. He easily fixed our plumbing issues and explained what he needed to do as he did the repairs. I highly recommend Shane. You will not be disappointed !

John is very accommodation and made everything look good under a budget while meeting and exceeding my expectations! The job wasn't easy, he had to repair mistakes made by previous contractors. New sub floors and flooring, trim, cabinets, drywall and repairs, plumbing of the toilet and sinks and vanities. It's a very old apt and nothing is square or even but he made it look fresh and new!

Luther has been a great help. He worked on the plumbing needs and got it all completed in one day. He offered to help on the larger project that we were working on and have used him for about a week. He informs us of how to do the project and why he would be doing it in a certain way...we would definitely recommend him again and use him for other projects in the future.

Dave helped us with some plumbing issues with our toilet and he was great. He was super responsive and kept us updated throughout the day on his expected arrival time. He made the timing work for us with our work schedule and was super quick. He gave us some very helpful instructions to follow up with and overall made a very unpleasant issue as pleasant as it could be. Would not hesitate to hire again!

Chris was a pleasure to work with in the replacement of my kitchen garbage disposal. He navigated unanticipated speed bumps professionally and despite the added time to the project, he completed the job in its entirety to ensure I had a functioning sink when he left. I would definitely work with this company again for future plumbing needs.

Carlos was great. In the end, the leak I had was not plumbing related, but he helped me trace it to the source - a gap in the window frame of the shower. He did not charge me to diagnose the issue. I'm lucky I didn't plumbing work this time, but when I do, Carlos will be my first call.

I highly recommend Francois to anyone reading this. I've been a customer of his for several years now, and In that time, he's assisted me with: new flooring, ceiling renovations, furniture fabrication and installation, plumbing, electrical work, painting, wall and ceiling repair, and appliance repair / replacement. I hired Mr. Newman based on recommendations from friends, but I continued to use him because I have yet to meet a handyman / contractor who is as consistently responsive, honest, and fairly priced as he is. Work was completed as quoted and on budget, something that has been very hard to find in my experience. If you want quality work, at a good price, without playing phone tag for days; look no further!

Really loved that they gave email updates thru the entire process and were transparent in pricing. Provided clear explanations on what my plumbing issues were and offered varied long-term solutions. Reviewed some past plumbing done by someone else and gave recommendations for that as well.

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.
