Brett Miller did excellent work. I was so nervous about this plumbing issue because this was my first home purchase and I didn't know what to expect. Brett made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that the job would be done in a timely manner. He also explained the process and was very upfront and honest about what the issues could be. I felt very relaxed knowing he was there to finish the job. Would definitely recommend!!!

Douglas was there when he said he'd be there and did a number of jobs for us in one afternoon including repairing our ceiling fan and replacing light fixtures, handling plumbing issues, and even putting up a new mailbox. We will be using him going forward on several of our projects!

I have used Scott on several occasions for plumbing issues that I have experienced with a rental property I own. He's always quick to respond to my phone calls, e-mail, and text messages. Depending on the urgency of the repair he comes out the same day or next day at the latest. He's reasonably priced, experienced in his trade, and completes the work in a quick and efficient manner. When I need a plumber he's the first one I call.

All Plumbing & Drain, Inc. was punctual and professional. Additional plumbing issues were discovered, and before proceeding with making those repairs, the needs and anticipated cost were immediately communicated to me. Once I okayed the additional repairs, All Plumbing stayed at my home until all plumbing problems were resolved. I will be using All Plumbing for all my plumbing needs.

I had already had 2 plumbers give me an estimate (seemed extremely high) and identified the problem, so, fortunately, I knew what I needed. Matthew's pricing came in as reasonable compared to other estimates. When it came to repair day, Matthew quickly assessed and confirmed the problem (and it was the same problem determined by other estimates) and was fast, yet thorough, in the repair process. Efficient and effective. My plumbing woes are over. I will use Matthew again for the reasons above.

I was referred to 822 by my neighbor who had just had some work done by them. I called first thing on a Friday morning and they were out within a couple hours. My issue was quickly diagnosed and the repair cost was competitive. The repair was done in a timely and professional fashion. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone.

      Reva the plumber was very knowledgeable about plumbing. He was actually referred to me by a coworker. He installed a stand in shower for me. I would hire him again, hopefully nothing brakes any time soon.

      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.
