Great experience! Very detailed and explained what he was fixing and why. Very fair on pricing, while he was fixing the water heater I also asked him to help with some other smaller jobs. You can’t go wrong with Carl!

We are pleased with all his work. Re-worked old washer water & drain pipes to come out of a modern box. Looks so much cleaner and is water tight! Also added a refrigerator water shut off valve. Kept us informed of his work status & got approval for his ideas of the fix. We are so pleased with his workmanship, knowledge and pricing, we are getting estimates for 3 other plumbing fixes we need. Quality work at a reasonable price.

Tony was wonderful. I called him to fix two toilets, and he advised me that my water heater needed repairing as well. He drove to the appliance store, bought the parts and charged me a fair and reasonable price. I am very, very satisfied with his service. And I will use him again

What can I say! Be it returning my call or showing up at my house on time.... extremely professional standards. I have dual water heaters out of which one was leaking...Prior to Mermaid engineering, two other plumbing professionals showed up...did not solve the issue...charged me a little over $100 and advised me to buy a new one. I had to spend $680 on a new appliance...but Paul changed the connections, got rid of the leaking water heater, used my second heater and saved me $680! The work was so neatly done. I now have Paul's name on my contacts. I highly recommend mermaid engineering for similar services. It is not because Paul saved me a lot of money, but because he is honest with his opinions and has expert solutions at a very reasonable cost.

I saw Chris's work at a neighbor's house and called to schedule repairs at my house. Chris and his partner pressure cleaned my driveway, fixed my lawn sprinklers, installed a new kitchen faucet and replaced electrical sockets for me. These gentlemen are courteous and clean cut. They leave your home neat and tidy when the work is finished. Their price is very reasonable. The next time anything at my house needs repair, I'm calling Chris! Call Chris at Gentle Hands. You'll be glad you did!

I have a small property management company and I deal with a lot of trades people. Reece was exceptional. He made contact with the tenant, showed up on time and stayed with the repairs on the water heater until the unit was operating properly again. He called afterwards to tell me the repairs were finished. The tenant called me to say he was also very pleased with his work. His price quote was very reasonable for the work done. I would definitely hire Reece again.

We were unsure what we wanted to replace our tank hot water heater with, they patiently waited for us to decide and then scheduled promptly to do the replacement. Showed up on time and completed job professionally for just slightly less than estimate. Will use again.

We moved into our home a few months ago and while we love the house, it does have some age to it so we knew we would be replacing things. Mike and John replaced our water heater and our water softener. They were very knowledgeable and did a great job. The staff at Affordable Water Treatment answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. Thank you! If you are looking for experience and quality of work at an affordable price, hire this company!!

David rebuilt my dock. Unbelievable price difference between him and the big companies. Saved thousands. Beautiful job. Showed up exactly when he said he would and did the job everyday for a week until it was complete. Great job, very professional. I will never use anyone else because his skill is truly unlimited. He put lights and water on my dock. I will recommend him to everyone I know.

Replacing a leaking water heater. Was on site on time and got the Job well done and in great professional ways. Pleasant and knowing his job. Had to resort to his technical skills to connect the exiting electrical wiring and cold/ hot pipes from the failing old 40-gallons tank to a shorter new tank. Unfortunately, the only minus was the use of an aluminum drain pan and concrete blocks in place of a single steel stand. This does not reflect well on the superb effort put in but in the end everything works great!!

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.

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.

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.
