Our water heater broke and was leaking into our house. Ron responded immediately late on a Friday evening and got us in Saturday morning first thing! Home Depot wouldn’t touch our water heater and told us it would be a week to fix because of where it was located in our garage. Ron got our old one out and a new one it and it up to code and working in an hour and said he would install a water softener for us as well if we needed him to come back. Would recommend to anyone!

Service: Water Heater - Removal and Installation Scarier than the clowns that have recently manifested are the horror stories with contractors and their abysmal work. Luckily, I was able to find Mr. Hankerson. He is a highly professional, and more importantly, a trustworthy contractor. His knowledge and expertise was matched only by his etiquette. Despite my incompetence when it comes to plumbing and water heaters, Mr. Hankerson was able to answer all of my preliminary questions and concerns. Subsequently, I was able to schedule a same-day removal and replacement of my water heater. After Mr. Hankerson completed the work, he spent an additional 30 minutes updating me about the new water heater and ways to extend/improve the life of unit. I will definitely hire Mr. Willie Hankerson again and would recommend him – without reservations – to anyone else.

Assurance Plumbing performed several major plumbing jobs for us: Replacement of a hot water heater Replacement of a garbage disposal in our kitchen A clogged pipe causing my washing machine backing-up into the laundry room resulting in dry-wall damage The cutting and refitting of a stripped main on/off value in the house Assurance service was outstanding, not only was the work done timely and above my expectations, they also put things in place to prevent future problems. When it was discovered that the washing machine problem was due to a clog pipe Assurance Plumbing did more then unclog the pipe. Assurance removed the pipe and installed a new pipe, to my surprise they then added a access point that could be used in the event of a future clog (the average company would have never taken the time to do). After the problem was corrected with my washing machine Assurance Plumbing advised that they had a drywaller they would scheduled to repair the drywall due to the water damage. Since this time I have informed American Home Shield that the only company we would allow to due any of our plumbing cover or no-covered is Assurance Plumbing.

He jumped in and helped me fix that as well. talk about crisis averted! Thank you, Tony. IF anyone wants to speak with me about Tony excellent customer service, please contact Tony and ask for my phone number.

Jarron did a wonderful job repairing my water heater. I first called one of the bigger company's and they came in just looked at the water heater for 5 or 6 minutes and gave me a ridiculous quote. Jarron came in that same day and actually checked the water heater. He fixed it very quickly and the price was less than half of the quote of the larger company. If I ever have any other needs in the future I will definitely give KJ plumbing a call.

I had a very pleasant experience working with Michael. I was particularly impressed with his strong work ethic and extremely reasonable pricing. If you are looking for a hardworking, trustworthy, dependable plumber who is priced extremely well, Michael fits the bill. You don't get "brand" or "professionalism" of a big-name plumbing company but you save a significant amount of money. Service Plus was going to charge me $800 to install my water heater, Lowes and Home Depot provided me estimates around $600; Michael completed the install for just over $200 for everything--parts, labor, removal of old water heater. Michael earned every penny! It was refreshing to work with someone who understood the meaning of hard work and offered exceptional value. I enjoyed working with Michael and would definitely hire him again for future plumbing jobs. Highly recommend!

After a water heater disaster and already paying a well known plumbing company 300 dollars to not repair our water heater, my husband and I were not happy about paying another plumber with high rates for little work. We finally decided to give it another try. He responded quickly and was VERY reasonably priced in comparison to some abnoxious quotes we received. He showed up quickly and got the job done in a very timely manner. Will definitely keep his business card handy!

I had a VERY good experience with this company. I appreciated him reaching out to me past the initial quote, all the information he gave me, and his working me in SO quickly. The cost was very reasonable and was exactly what he quoted. He was respectful of my property in the work area as well. Definitely will call him first when repairs are needed. This time was replacement of a leaking water heater. Also gave me a follow up text to be sure every thing was working as intended the next day. Great customer service, and the install was done very nicely--looks great!

My water heater finally died after 18 years. I called FlowPro and Ron came out later that morning to provide an estimate to replace it. After discussing several options, I decided to go with a tankless water heater in place of a traditional gas water heater. The technician was able to come out that afternoon to replace it and I was able to take a hot shower that night! Very impressed with their prompt service and everyone was professional, from the office gal to the technician. I highly recommend them!

Adam was fantastic! I hired him to help me with my hot water heater. It is old and needs to be replaced but he made a temporary fix to get me by until I'm able to replace it. His rates were very reasonable. He was professional, knowledgeable, hard working and willing to help me with multiple plumbing problems on his visit. He talked me through my plumbing issues and gave me his expert suggestions.

I needed all vanity and kitchen faucets replaced in the house due to hard water damage and also have the water heater flushed. They were on time for the appointment and did a really good job. I called them back a week later for additional work and they managed to be there the same day.

    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.
