James did excellent work replacing a gas hose and turning it into gorgeous black pipes under our water heater. He also helped diagnose what we thought was a clogged drain - it was just the sewage catch thingie. Thank you James!

I needed a new water heater (fast!) and was considering going tankless. The people at 24/7 took all the time I needed to go over my options and help me figure out what the best choice for my home was. I ended up going with a highly rated and efficient tank system since the water in my area is quite hard so the added cost of installing a water softener to keep a tankless system running well throughout its intended lifespan pushed that option over my desired budget. The two man team that came to my house were quick and clean! It took less than 4 hours from the time they arrived to my hot water being back on (and I'm including the time it took for the tank to heat up after they installed it). Everything they moved was put back carefully (and correctly!) and the area looks cleaner than when they arrived. They installed, tested, and checked their work. They also attended to little details, like making sure to rinse out any grit and grime from aerators in sink faucets after we turned the water back on and flushed the lines. Great job overall. Would definitely hire them again.

I needed a toilet installed. Brandon Jones responded to the request within 15 minutes. After I spoke to him he was here the next day and did an excellent job. He also checked our whole house water filter and let me know the exact filter I would need, as I looked and wasn't able to figure it out. He was very nice, polite, and timely. He worked very quietly and efficiently! Very professional and charged a very reasonable price! I will call him in the future to do some more work and will highly recommend him to friends!

Darnell fixed our oven about a month ago, very quickly and effectively. This weekend our water heater sprung a leak, so we called Darnell to see if he could install a new one for us. He came that same evening and got right to it, then was back at 7 the next morning to complete. He is very knowledgeable and courteous and we would definitely hire him again.

I spoke to Jon about my pilot light on my water heater that kept going out. Since I dicovered the water heater should not be in a bathroom ( which voided my warranty), he explained why and since it is in a small closet suggested I leave the door open for the air to circulate! This light was going out everyday for the last 3 days. Following Jon's advice the pilot light has stayed lit! I didn't hire him for now, but will definitely contact him for jobs in the future! Thank you so much for your advice Jon, and saving me money!

I had an issue with the water pressure in our rental townhouse in Annapolis. I had gotten other quotes from plumbers stating the issue was due to a ball valve and some piping that needed to be replaced around the water heater. I got connected to Daub at Supreme Plumbing and he came out and spent a couple hours diagnosing the psi issue and found that the ball valve or piping wasn't the issue at all and that a psi booster was needed after the main pipe as the county stated the psi was at a good level coming into the house. Daub was upfront about the job and the materials involved. He even recommended cheaper options for the booster and materials to save some money as well. He was extremely professional and did a wonderful job installing the booster. My tenants are now happy with the stronger shower pressure in the upstairs bathrooms. Easily the best customer service I've experienced in the area. I highly recommend using Daub at Supreme as he is now my go to plumber for any future plumbing work!

My water heater broke on and they were able to come look at my crawl space/water heater the next day on a Sunday. James took my information down and then they ordered the water heater and installed it. I believe his name was Will but he somehow was able to get the new one installed in a very tight space in my Baltimore city home. They made the process so easy, were very considerate of cleaning up, and kept me informed throughout the whole process that I decided to buy a maintenance plan with them. I would recommend using them and have already had my parents reach out.

Lashelle Seal Tight Plumbing LLC offered quality work in a timely manner! They recently installed a hot water heater and added some additional piping to move the heater from one end of the basement to the other closer to the vent to make my application legal and within code. The work was stellar. Look like a master piece. Thank you Seal Tight Plumbing for being diligent and delivering quality service.

Mr. Kitts responded to me immediately after I was w/out hot water for 2 days and the big home improvement store I work for couldn't help me. I was desperate. I got the hot water heater, I contacted Mr. Kitts and he worked it all out w/ me. Him and his wife/helper showed up and professionalism all the way. I WILL NOT THROW THEIR NO. AWAY. Call them awesome.

I had Direct Drain come out to rebuild a kitchen sink, and replace some of the drain line it connected to. The work was done quickly and expertly. The area they worked was left as clean as it was before they started. The entire job was explained before any work started. Everything works better than before I had them replace pipes/fixtures. I plan on having them replace a water heater, and replace all the pipes on all the other sinks in this house. I am confident once they do the work I will never have to worry about it again. Pricing was way more than fair. They don’t have the overhead the big guys have so they pass the savings on.

Fantastic job started w wall repair, but we ended up giving the whole kitchen and basement stairway a new, much needed look. They scraped and prepped walls with water damage and made it look brand new. He was also on time which is a tremendous trait these days.

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.

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.

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.

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.
