He was great! I initially needed help turning on the hot water heater-and connecting a pipe correctly under the sink so it wouldn't leak.(I'm new to the area and I've never had a gas hot water heater. The appliance was new and prior owner turned everything off--investors. I didn't want to blow myself up.) Anyway, he was so quick I asked him about a leak in the toilet and he had to get a gasket from Home Depot and returned and got it done. I was so happy I said, now all you have to do is find my glasses and We'll call it a perfect day. As he was leaving, he located my glasses... A plumber that can also perform miracles. Thanks for all your great help.

Gary was great! Flushed 2 water heaters, replaced 2 corroded copper pipes and gave me a few tips on how to extend the life of my system. No upselling. No nonsense. I'll be calling him next time I need some help.

There's a reason why Daniel has a lot of great reviews. He provides great service at a reasonable price. I had a refrigerator leak. I created my job on Saturday and hired Daniel on the Sunday. We set up a time to meet on Monday. He also called me on Sunday to walk me through turning off the water to the refrigerator, which stopped the leak. This was great service because he didn't have to do this especially on the weekend. On Monday, he fixed the leak including driving through Houston lunch traffic to buy a needed part. I definitely recommend him if you need appliance repair services.

I had to have both my water heaters replaced in the attic of a 2 story home. Ibrahim Flores responded first and asked when I needed this done.....my response was “now...LOL.” Well little did I know he did get on it right then! He was in and out that day....I was impressed and the quote was extremely reasonable. I have his number already saved in my phone and I told a friend of mine that needs some sheet rock repair done, gave her his number. Thank you Ibrahim, I got to take a long HOT shower this morning.

My water heater went out and I needed one as soon as possible. After multiple quoted, he was the most reasonable and he explained the process of him removing the old unit and replacing with a new one. I will be using in the future.

I was notified by Payless Plumbing less than an hour after I posted my request for a quote. The quote was the lowest of 5 so I called and spoke to Willie Flores. Willie was very professional and knowledgeable about plumbing, from the pictures I posted he was able to see and know what work was required. Payless was quick to repair with the water leak. I recommend Payless Plumbing for their honesty and professionalism to get the job done right in minimal time. Thank you

This was the first time I would be using a service like thumbtack but I was sure glad I did. Freddy from Steddy Plumbing won me over when he already told me precisely what the issue was with my water heater just from looking at pictures. He was very professional in his service and the best part, I wasn't even available when he completed the whole job in about an hour or less. I definitely would recommend Freddy from Steddy Plumbing for your plumbing issues. The guy knows his stuff!!!

I've dealt with this company before on craftjack a couple of times and Jay is the best plumber around. The other guys tried to charge us 1500 for a water heater plus install. He gave us the same deal for only 999. They will be the only company I need when it comes to plumbing. Honesty is number 1 in my book.

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.

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.

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.
