It was a pleasure to work with Jason. He was very professional and punctual. He also helped us get the Water Heater to our home to install it. I truly appreciated his responsiveness especially since we were without hot water. Will use him for future needs.

Mr. Cannon and his assistant installed my new Rheem hot water heater today! The install was flawless and the price nowhere near the ripoff price installers from Lowes were trying to bilk me for! I cancelled that order and contacted Mr. Cannon and just talking to him, I knew this guy was up front! Also, I am in Cedar Park, TX and he came all the way from his location in Bastrop, now if that is not quality service you tell me what is? Any future plumbing work needed at my location will be done by Cannon Plumbing and Drain. Get it done right the first time with them, as THEY ROCK!! Nelson, A

Felipe Garcia and team member, Scotty, were absolutely amazing. They showed up on time, and were as professional, efficient, and courteous as any home professional repair company I have ever worked with. Felipe's pricing beat five other estimates substantially. They remained on site to make certain everything worked properly that primarily included replacement of a hot water heater. If you are looking for solid workmanship, no 'upselling techniques', honesty -- all at an extremely fair price, then look no further than Felipe Garcia. Oh, all of the above with same day service -- within two hours of my first outreach on Thumbtack.

Cost estimate was significantly less than a well known plumbing company in the greater Austin area (e.g $1400) while still replacing the same parts and meeting code standards. Garrett was timely,communicative, efficient, and followed up several days later to ensure the water heater was working properly. Already recommended to our neighbor and will recommend to others.

He answered the phone quickly and was the first to respond. His price was really low since than all others. All I had to do was buy all the supplies at The Home Depot from a list that Jose provided. He installed a water heater according to inspection code. Great guy.

I talked to Russ a while ago to get a quote for my water heater replacement. I finally got around to it and called him. He was able to accommodate us that very day. Russ did a good job with the installation and was very helpful in giving us instructions of how to maintain it going forward. He was very courteous and professional throughout the process. I would highly recommend him to anyone for their future plumbing needs. He was also very reasonable with his quote. Very happy with the service!

Chad responded quickly with a highly competitive offer. He was able to fit us into his schedule the next day. In addition to fixing our problem, he also did a review of our other sinks, water softener and two hot water heaters. He called with an overview of his findings, but was not pushy about repair work. His professionalism was exemplary and we will be using him again for our plumbing needs! Thanks, Chad! And thanks Thumtack!!

Ben installed a premium Rinnai tankless water heater. He responded within hours of my request for service and was on the job replacing my dead water tank within 18 hours. Considering I couldn't get any service for weeks from several plumbers, and another strung me out for a week promising "tomorrow . . . tomorrow " with no follow-up Ben was the complete opposite. He does as he promises and was on time. I should also add that his assistant was polite, bright, and personable. This was not a simple job. My old tank wouldn't drain without special effort. (And he took it away with him.) Using the existing vent hole (with a newer/bigger vent) would require (steep) roof walking. Gas pipe extension and working with poorly configured electrical would have driven most installers into excuses, delays and added costs. This project was done in a very long day; Ben wasn’t leaving without completing the job. And, with not a penny of added costs. Integrity is hard to find these days. After a long day sweating in my attic Ben took the time to show me how to clean out unusually difficult-to-remove faucet aerators blocking my water flow. This is the guy you want to hire for the jobs no one else will do.

My water heater broke so I didn't have hot water for 2 weeks. After shopping around in Austin, I found Rigo on Thumbtack. Rigo was so quick to get back to me on setting up an appointment. He picked up the replacement part and replaced the water valve in one hour. He even came back an hour later to check to make sure everything was working. I highly recommend Rigo for any water heater repairs and would use him again!

I had a hot water leaking in the slab somewhere in the kitchen. David responded very quickly via phone and offered some smart advice that allowed me to cut off the line with the leaking hot water and still have a hot water in the bathrooms for the evening and next morning. Next day he showed up on time, explained the situation and proposed few options to remedy the problem. Once we agreed on the price for the job he worked very quickly and efficiently. The job was done in one day in a very professional way. The price was right, much lower than quotes from other companies. Could not be happier with the choice I made hiring David (Clear &Present Pluming LLC). If you have a plumbing problems David is guy to call.

I was having a problem with low hot water pressure and it was not getting hot enough after a repair my husband made to a corroded fitting on the top of the water heater. Tim arrived on time to give me an estimate of the work and then got right to work. The price was competitive and he was done in no time. I have hot water pressure again!

    I had an old on demand hot water heater go out and I contacted Danny from an ad on Craig's list. You can never tell what kind of person you will find on Craig's list BUT this time it was very good! Danny replaced the unit and even added an electrical outlet, since the new unit required it, which not something most plumbers would do. The cost was very reasonable. If you have any plumbing repair needs, I would start with A Model Plumbing!

    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.

    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 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.

    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.
