We had an outlet that was sparking in our master bedroom. I placed a posting after midnight on Friday, hoping To find someone to assist over the weekend. Farit responded that evening and came out the next morning. It was a quick fix, but he easily deciphered the cause of the problem and repaired in about 30 min. We will most likely be calling him to assist with electrical work in future. Would highly recommend to others as well.

I was very pleased with the service Daniel performed. I needed someone to scrub down my back deck and deck furniture. He came promptly and did a very thorough job. Daniel is a very personable young man who seems to be very hard working and very honest & family oriented. He brought his daughter with him and they worked side by side to get the job done! I would highly recommend Daniel for any type of work, he also does landscaping, painting, plumbing & Heating. Sondra M.

Robert was amazing. A great guy and very skilled at what he does. Repaired our plumbing leaks and replaced our water valve system to perfection. He even helped me with issues I was having with my sprinkler system and landscaping (that wasn't on the agenda)! He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Thank you for your professionalism.

I would highly recommend Clog Kings. I spoke with James the day I put in my request. He gave me a quote over the phone and came out to my home the same day to perform the work. Their prices were the best and the work performed was even better! James went above and beyond to fix my plumbing issues at a very reasonable rate. Great company!

I would highly recommend Neweramechanicalservices to anyone who likes great service, awesome prices and somebody that gets the job done right. I had a major leak where the main water line meets the house plumbing. He replaced the pipe, the shut off valve, two couplings, and a couple of other things that broke because the pvc was very old and brittle. He took the time to show me what the problem was and what he had to do to so I could have water again. He actually fixed more than what the actual problem was and did not charge me. To have it fixed on a Saturday and have water again for under $100 is something I cannot complain about. I actually think he should charge more for his work, time and dedication. Since this company is new to the area from New York, he doesn't have many reviews but this doesn't mean he doesn't do awesome work. Thank you Neweramechanical, I will be calling you next time I have a problem. TR Winter Park

Tim came out within 3 hours of initial contact and assessed the job. As we suspected, the water heater was shot and needed a replacement. I asked him when he might be able to install a new one and he said he could have a new one installed before the end of the day. I was surprised, but accepted. Tim went back to the warehouse and found our replacement (brand new) and had the old one out and the new one in in less than 2 hours time. Clean, efficient and thoughtful of the owner's needs and budget. I highly recommend him for any plumbing task.

I called RDP Services after having the Plumbing Company who had installed our GE water softener come look at the unit. They said the unit would cost more to fix than to have it replaced and tried to sell me a highly overpriced unit for out needs. I decided to get another opinion and that's when Robert from RDP Services came out the day after I called him. Best decision I ever made. Robert was extremely knowledgeable, professional and thorough. He went over the entire unit and was able to fix our problem. He did not try and up sell us on things we did not need. He should me what the problem parts were and replaced them. The unit is back up and running like new. I could not be more pleased by the service we received from Robert and would highly recommend him to anyone who needs water softener or water filtration repairs.

Rod was amazing. He discovered my faucet was leaking and needed to be replace. He went to Home Depot with me to make sure I purchased the right type of faucet, then installed it. The fact he was willing to stay and complete the job was so appreciated and avoided another service call. He was professional and provided high quality work at a fair value. I would recommend Rod to anyone with water softener or general plumbing needs. Thank you Rod!!

They replaced my water heater and did a great job for a heck of a price. He even helped me fix an issue with the plumbing on my fridge and refused to charge me for it. I will definitely use this company for all my plumbing and electrical needs and will recommend them to my family and friends.

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.
