I had an emergency plumbing situation and Randy responded immediately and fixed my issue in no time. He even cleaned up the water on the floor from the overflow. He was very kind and explained why my issue had happened and what I can do in the future to fix it myself without having to pay for another visit. I will definitely call Rabdy again in the future.

Charles was nothing short of exceptional on this job. He was punctual (actually got to my house before I did) and then was super efficient in his work replacing the baseboard in one of the rooms in my home. The finished product looks excellent! If that wasn't enough, during our conversations found out Charles also could help with a plumbing issue I was having with one of our toilets. He probably stayed an extra 30 min at least helping try and unclog the toilet and he got that fixed as well! Even though he didn't ask for anything, I paid him extra for that work and the exceptional work he did on both projects. I certainly recommend him and I will reach out to him if I ever need help!

Been looking for a plumer to show up or return calls and couldn't find one. Gary's plumbing was honest about the job and told me how to fix the toilet because it was just the wrong handle. So I asked him to replace and install dishwasher. His son went to Lowe's and picked it up for me, took the old one out and installed the new one. Super pleasant and nice.

not only did john do a great job for a great price, he worked around my schedule, making the experience as pleasant as it could be given I had a leaking water heater at the beginning. to top it off, my mastiff, Murphy, really liked him and that's a big plus in my book. if you have plumbing needs, I highly, and without reservation, recommend john and action plumbing.

Mr. Chad was very helpful in letting me know what was needed. I had the wrong parts and I needed to get the correct parts from Home Depot. He was willing to stay and complete other projects while I went to get the parts. He's very trustworthy in your home. He's efficient, quick, and has a great personality. He fixed my shower posi temp cartridge, Kitchen Sprayer, powder room plumbing, and put together my baby crib!

I had a few pieces of furniture that needed to be assembled and Jerry came to the rescue. He was prompt and courteous and my pieces look great. There were a few pieces that were a bit complicated to assemble, with quite a bit of pieces/steps, but Jerry took his time and made sure everything was assembled to standard and with quality; don't know where my house would be if it wasn't for Jerry. Thank you Jerry, you def made my move easier!

They were a pleasure to work with - I had a general idea of what I wanted for a 2-sided fireplace and Glenn and his assistant listened and made suggestions to help me. Always had a smile, a positive attitude, and kept me informed of every step along the way. Took care of every part of the project, from start to finish. The work quality - excellent, the value - superior. I highly recommend Southeastern Gas Piping & Plumbing, Inc.

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.

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 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.

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.
