Solution Based Plumbing initially quoted us $1200 for replacement of piping in our 1/2 bathroom. The quote was based on pictures that we sent. Upon arrival, the plumber discovered that the piping was solid and we only needed a new toilet ring. The total cost was $275. We greatly appreciated their honesty and will most definitely call on them again if/when plumbing, heating, and/or ac needs arise.

Mark was great. He replaced the original light fixture on a house that's almost 100 years old. The work was challenging with old electric wiring. The new chandelier looks great. His price was very fair. I already have other jobs in mind for him. I highly recommend.

Normally i don't write reviews, but in this case, i want to inform people about how happy i am with my choice to go with Sam of Advance Heating and Air, for total HVAC system, He truly enjoys his craft, and is proud (and should be) of his work, I was offered by a bigger company a smaller system at 4 to $5000 more, and of course the salesman tries to turn you away from local guys saying they cant do the same type work, I put my trust in Sam and his way better product and offer, and couldn't be happier, he has earned all my future business in that field, If you are in the need for any air, heat or plumbing needs, do yourself a favor and talk with Sam, he will take care of you, and like me, at a price you will be pleased with.

Just like the reviews John didn't disappoint. I had him install all the plumbing and garbage disposal for a double sink. He was patient and ran to Lowes a few times to get the parts I didn't have. Although it was a lot more work than I initially posted for, John didn't charge me extra. I ended up paying him extra anyhow because of his quality work and excellent service. Will definitely be using John in the future.

We are lucky to have Ellal help us with our plumbing needs. Ellal is a licensed contractor providing professional services. The job is to install an under sink water filter, and replace sprayer with a drink water faucet. We thought we got everything ready for him to start the installation, but we missed one important part and the faucet turned out to be defective product. Ellal is very patient, helping us find the right part and the solution to fix the defective faucet. We really appreciate all his efforts. Now, we are enjoying the crispy taste of the filtered water! Thank you, Ellal!

I needed a water heater replacement and called Benny at Subzero because of his positive reviews. He completed the work yesterday and I would recommend Benny to my family and friends who have plumbing needs. He always responded to my calls in a timely manner and was flexible in scheduling my water heater replacement. Benny and his son did a great job with the removal of my old water heater and installation of the new one. They worked efficiently and carefully in the small closet space that houses the water heater. I couldn't give them a higher recommendation! By the way, Benny's price was the lowest of the three estimates that I solicited so I know I also got a great value using him and his son.

Steve responded to my post within 30 minutes, and was incredibly responsive and professional throughout the project. He and his assistant were both very friendly, and finished the project much more quickly than I anticipated - and of course did a great job! He will absolutely be my first call for any future plumbing projects. Highly recommended!

I believed I was having a major issue with my plumbing Mr Morris responded quickly.He was on site to do an estimate in less than 24 hours and after reviewing my problem suggested that my worries were unfounded and that no work needed to be done. Even though I offered compensation for his time he said the estimate was free.I am keeping his number a contractor I can trust and so can you!

Did a great job figuring out the hole in the pipe inside the wall, just cut the wall as needed, fixed and put the drywall back. While he was there, he checked other plumbing faucets, drains and cleared as needed. Very highly recommended.

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.  

Follow these additional tips for confidently hiring a plumber or other skilled professional.
