Ben was great! We had a leak in our bathroom and didn’t know the severity of it, Ben was able to come quickly and resolve the issue in just a few minutes. He was very easy to communicate with and showed up exactly when he said he would. We will definitely use him again for our plumbing needs.

We had a toilet leaking from the inlet house that flooded the bathroom that caused the bathroom to flood. We had to cut off water to the entire house. It was very late but Mr Cochranethe next day. It took about an hour and a half and everything was back to normal. Mr. Cochrane was very knowledgable and charged a fair price. I will definitely use him again for further plumbing issues . I was very pleased with the work and he was very polite and cleaned up after himself. I rate this a 5star experience .

They did a great job assembling a ride on battery operated toy car for my daughter. They arrived on time, made sure we had all parts before assembling, and cleaned up after. Very organized, and efficient. I learned once there they have many other skills- electrician / plumbing, and will use in the future.

Mr. Hernandez has done an excellent job doing drywall work, plumbing, carpentry, painting, roofing, etc. He even trimmed two trees that were in dire need of trimming. I have dealt with many handymen, plumbers, electricians and painters over the years. Most overcharge and do sub-par work. Alberto has been a pleasure to work with. He's the quintessential professional! I cannot recommend him highly enough.

We had plumbing problems all over our house and contacted Saia Plumbing late one night. They had someone come first thing the next morning who was on time, professional, very knowledgeable and helpful. He provided solutions when addressing the problems. I will definitely use them again. It's hard to find good people who actually show up and do good work, but Saia Plumbing did just that. Thanks so much!

Williams Plumbing is by far, and I mean this sincerely, the best, most professional service I have ever had. The price was shockingly low for the quality of work and the detail. He really knows what he's doing. If you want great service and knowledge at a fair and affordable price, you will find it at Williams Plumbing.

My toilets and showers got backed up in the upstairs of our home. They were extremely professional and knowledgeable. They explained in details what they were going to do to help me fix the problem. They were super organized and clean. I couldn't be happier that they were able to resolve my plumbing issues in a timely matter.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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 much does it cost to fix a hot water heater?

Nationally, the average water heater repair cost ranges between $120 and $200, although prices can range up to $400 or more. Water heater repair costs will depend on the type of water heater you have (tankless, electric, natural gas, etc.), the source of the problem, the cost for new parts, and labor rates in your area. Common water heater issues include problems with the thermocouple, thermostat, heating element and leaks. Most standard electric water heaters have two thermostats and two elements. One example for the cost to replace a bad thermostat is $185 for parts and labor. Replacing both the thermostat and the heating element could cost approximately $150-$200. The thermocouple is a safety device that senses when the pilot light is burning and signals the gas valve to close if the pilot light goes out. If your thermocouple is bad or corroded, the average cost to clean and repair it could be between $350 and $400. If your water heater has started to leak, it is usually more cost-effective to invest in a new water heater than to repair it, unless you’re covered by a warranty.

How much does it cost to install a tankless hot water heater?

Tankless water heaters usually cost more to install than traditional tanks, because many homes need to be retrofitted to accommodate the new system. Tankless electric water heaters retail on average between $150 and $1,200, and tankless natural gas water heaters retail between $200 and $1,300 on average. The lower prices ($150-$250) are generally for point-of-use tankless heaters that can be installed to boost hot water in high-demand areas such as the bathroom or kitchen sink. Tankless water heaters designed to heat whole homes usually start under $300 at the low end and go up to $1,400 or more. Pricing for whole-home varies with the heater’s technology and features. Nationally, standard water heater installation costs average $360-$780, but tankless water heater installation costs may range from $400 to $1,000, depending on the work needed. Some perks of tankless water heaters are that they have nearly double the life expectancy of traditional water heaters and are generally more cost-efficient. Homeowners may be able to save $100 or more per year on their utility bills with an Energy Star approved tankless heater, depending on how much hot water they use.
