Within approximately 5 minutes of submitting my request for plumbing help, I received a reasonable quote from Brandon, 1st Home Professional Services and we set up a date and time. He was prompt, efficient, and the problem fixed within 30 minutes. He is professional, and efficient. No doubt I will be using his services for other projects in my home.

David arrived and covered his shoes before entering my home..that always gets major points. He got right to it and finished in good time. He even gave me some tips and advice. I hope to not have any plumbing emergencies anytime soon but, if I do I'll definitely call Eagle Home. Top notch service.

It was Avery pleasant experience working with All seasons pros. They were very professional, punctual and courteous. The only thing I was disappointed about was that I was looking for someone who is professional plumber, just in case things were wrong with the plumbing behind the walls. All seasons let me know that were not when they got to the house but if I had known earlier when corresponding I’d have hired a professional. However they did what they could do best. I’d hire them for handyman services.

I was looking for a simple tiling project in my 230sqft kitchen and half bathroom. After getting all the materials Jenrri got straight to the job. Provided suggestions and materials on making the finished product look cleaner. And with it only being the two of them made great time. I can tell they work hard. Overall I am very pleased with the work. I would recommend to others and rehire in the future

Jon Drew came early, worked hard, billed only for work performed, and treated my house as respectfully (I imagine) as he treats his own. I feel fortunate that, by chance, he answered my request for plumbing help first. He has done a great job.

Supreme Plumbing & Heating was great! They came out to my property on time and very accurately diagnosed the problem with a leak in a booster pump (that the insurance adjuster was not able to diagnose). Very professional and even wrote up a detailed report that I needed for a claim. Would highly recommend!

Patrick was absolutely fantastic. He was very cordial. He showed up early. The job of cleaning out the drain took longer than we expected but he stayed until he got the job done and he had cleaned up. He only charged me what he had originally quoted me even though the problem was tougher than we thought. He seemed genuinely surprised when I tipped him and was very appreciative of it. I could not be happier with the results and his ability to work around my schedule. I highly recommend him for your plumbing needs and will use him again in the future if it’s needed. Thank you so much for all your hard work Patrick! I appreciate it!

Sameer was awesome! He came to my place because I had a stopped up drain and sewage was coming up from that drain. He saw the mess and didn’t even blink twice. He cleaned up the mess with my hose and fixed my sump pump that was broken. He unclogged my drain and gave me suggestions on what to do to not let that happen again. He also had friendly conversation! This plumbing business is ok in my book and I will use again! Thanks Sameer! He also will write a report to Dc Water!

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.
