Eric arrived when he said he would, he kept me in the loop on the repairs and what work he was doing. His work was done professionally and he even point out items that look like they may need service in the future. I now have his number saved and will continue to use for all plumbing needs.

Mark is excellent. The consummate professional. We needed to have all exterior hose bibs/spigots replaced in our new house. He replied immediately with a quote and an explanation of the work. His quote was reasonable-- right in the middle of the five different quotes we requested. Mark was very responsive when working out scheduling. He arrived early. He scoped out the damaged water sources and inspected all of the plumbing before providing me with a work order which matched his original quote. He completed the job in 1.5 hours. All three run beautifully now and the fixtures look clean and properly installed. He finished by giving us instructions about how to maintain the fixtures and protect the water sources and pipes. Without question, we will call Mark again for any plumbing needs. Thanks again!

I don't usually do these reviews, but if you are looking for a plumber Joel at Clear Water is the guy for the job. I hired a another plumber a few months ago and wish I would have called Clear Water first. Joel was on time, gave me a three different options of what he could do and what the cost would be for all three, and the quality of work was top notch. Any plumbing or heating issues going forward I will be contacting Clear Water.

I sent the request through Thumbtack for help with two small projects, expecting to be put in line behind a backlog of customers for at least several days, as small jobs like mine are often not treated with high priority. I was so pleasantly surprised to hear back within a few hours, and had the appointment booked right away that day! The plumbers showed up early (a complete miracle in my long years of experience with contractors) got right to work, had all the parts they needed, and even made several helpful suggestions that made the project even better than expected. I couldn't be happier with the service from Hilliard. Many thanks for providing exactly what I needed, so I could finish the next steps of this project!

We were referred to R&R Plumbing and Heating from one of my husbands co-workers. We called Rob on Monday and informed him of a leaky toilet and a shower faucet that would not stop leaking and we new the whole get up had to be replaced. Rob came out the next day. Before coming he asked me to send photos of the shower surroundings so he could make sure he had everything he needed and that the fixtures I had already picked out would work. Of course with an older house you know things aren’t as easy a fix as one would hope for And it required a little more work, but the finished product is amazing!! I don’t think we even realized how poorly our shower was functioning before. Robs’ quick timely response, his quality of work and professionalism will definitely make this household a R&R customer for all our plumbing and hvac!!! Thank you again Rob!!

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.
