Mike did a great job. He provided an accurate estimate to relocate and connect rough'd in supply and drain lines for a basement bar sink. Additionally, he ran a supply line for an ice maker. He arrived on time and completed the work timely. His installation is clean and neat, and done with consideration as if it were his own home. New Comcept Plumbing will be my first call for future plumbing needs.

Chris was very friendly, insightful, and professional. He explained the process along the way, went out of his way to resolve our plumbing issues, and gave us a plan on preventing it from happening again in the future. His prices were also a bargain for the amount of work he did. Will definitely be using his services again if any other plumbing issues arise.

Barry was a joy to work with. He knows his craft well and very reasonable rates. He did a remodel of our bathroom from start to finish and it turned out beautifully ( installed new cabinets, tiled floor, installed toilet, faucets,plumbing and drywall). He is not only a good at his job but he is a nice guy. I have recommended him to family and friends and would hire him in the future.

After having a plumbing company come out to clear a drain - and having them say the job was near impossible and they would have to cut the waste stack in 3 places, replace the P trap on the Laundry Tubs and that pipe would likely not fit the old laundry tubs, and oh by the way, it might still need a drain cleaning (now up to about a 1400-1800 job - Mike dropped in. He did the cleaning in 20 minutes. He got by the difficult juncture. He charged less than the other company quoted for the clean out, and he showed up within 1 hour. Hire this guy.

Picture this. ...a flooded house, with endless tussle with the insurance company and a gloomy moldy smell , until I met Julio. From hard wood floor installation, plumbing in the bathroom, installing a storm door, refinishing partial basement from water damage to helping with other handy jobs that were not even part of the agreement, because he is s perfectionist. The best part of it all was his professionalism. He treated my home with respect and I am happy to come home again.

Harry was on time and professional. Scheduling work with him was very easy, and his price was in the range I had expected to pay. When he arrived onsite, it was determined that one of the projects would not be possible for this visit. Harry and I negotiated to an agreeable amount, and I couldn't be happier with the work he performed. Overall, I am very satisfied with this experience, and will seek out Harry again when I have plumbing projects.

Good service. I had a clogged drain. They said they could come between 3 and 5, but would call if they could get there sooner. They called and were able to come at 1. The clog was hard to get through- took them about an hour, but they got it cleared. They offered some options and other free advice. Charged what they quoted (109). I'd hire them again. The other plumber I talked to quoted "$79 total price" but when I phoned him, he said there was a "trip charge" of about $30 (like he could clear a drain from his office without making a trip?)

Brian and Zach were great. I hired them to do replace my bathtub drain, install a new shower valve, and put shut offs on the bathroom sink plumbing. They showed up on time, were very personable, and got the work done fast. They tested everything before they left, and let me know if there were any troubles to call them immediately, and they would drop by whenever it's convenient. Brian's pricing was reasonable, and right on the mark from the estimate he quoted me over the phone. I have a friend who needs some plumbing work done, and I've already referred Brian and Zach. Also, if I ever have any further plumbing needs, they will be my first call. Thank you, Brian and Zach! A job well done!

Suzie installed a garbage disposal in a very tight area (8 in wide!) under my kitchen sink next to the dishwasher. It took a little wrangling but she got it done. Suzie was prompt, kept the area clean, and did a very nice job. The installation was a little more expensive than I originally thought it was going to be due to the location of the disposal. I would hire her again. She is pleasant and knows her stuff!

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.
