"This experience mirrors what I have experienced with
Plumbing for the last 5 years. Here's what I wrote to the owner: Yesterday we had one of our occasional" visits from
Plumbing employees. As with every other visit over the last 5 years, your men were very competent and professional, very courteous and pleasant. This is how every
employee has presented himself: as a competent leader with regard to plumbing, and a caring servant with regard to my family and me. Please thank all of your employees for me.

"I decided to call
based on the many positive comments they've received on Angie's List. I haven't needed any plumbing work done in years. The" woman who took my call and scheduled the service appointment with
was friendly and helpful. I made the call on Thursday, and was able to get a Saturday morning appointment -- that in itself was remarkable to me! The service technician,
, called ahead on Saturday morning, and arrived exactly on time.
was extremely polite, clean uniform, very well-spoken and very professional. He asked me questions, and he took a look at the location of each toilet, and went into the attic to examine the hot water heater. Almost immediately, he discovered that the thermostat on the heater was broken. More importantly,
noticed that the pipes connected to the top of the water heater were rusting, and a leak had developed at the point where a pipe entered the tank. I was really surprised by that bit of news, but I saw it for myself. I was so glad he spotted that leak! He explained that although the use of steel pipe meets code requirements, it DOES rust through rather quickly, and copper pipe is far, far better. I had always known that copper was the best choice for plumbing, but had simply never paid any attention to the pipes before. At this point,
carefully explained the repairs that the water heater needed, gave me some options, went over the cost of each repair, along with detailed cost information for the toilet installation. The pricing for each service is spelled out clearly, like a menu, in a company notebook. A great idea -- this way, you can see the prices right in front of you, and you don't have to wonder if the technician is just pulling figures out of thin air. And the total is the total; no surprises after the work is completed.
called to locate a supplier open on Saturday so he could go get a new thermostat for the water heater. He left to pick it up, then returned promptly to begin work.
worked straight through the day without a break. He was quiet, polite, and kept each work area very clean. He replaced the steel pipe with copper, installed a new thermostat and, of course, the two new toilets. As he completed each task, he would show me the work and explain anything that needed explaining. After he removed them,
showed me the rusted steel pipe sections from the water heater. I could clearly see the corroded-looking areas on the outside, as well as a shocking amount of thick rust buildup on the inside of every section. And although I hadn't asked him to, he told me he had unclogged a sink in the master bathroom that he noticed was draining slowly -- no charge. He also hauled away the old toilets, which I had assumed I would have to deal with, and all the boxes the new toilets came in. No charge. That was a courteous thing to do. I appreciated the "above and beyond" of it. The complete job took six hours, and I am extremely pleased with the results. The level of knowledge and professionalism
has shown reflects well on the entire company. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

when to install a new water heater

When should I replace my water heater?

Dear Angie: My water heater is past its expected lifetime. Should I automatically replace it or wait until it fails?

Installing a water heater is best left to a professional while homeowners can perform key maintenance.

Water heaters

Standard storage tank water heaters typically need to be replaced after about a decade, but they can last years longer with some homeowner maintenance. When the time comes to buy a new one, there are more options for consumers to consider.

It's smart to take action to reduce energy use when you're away from home. But find out why top electricians say turning off circuit breakers isn't a good idea.

If you notice moisture around your water heater, you may need to replace it. But first, make sure the water isn't coming from a leak in the fittings or connections to the tank, or from the temperature/pressure overflow pipe, instead of the water heater itself. (Photo by Water Heaters Only Inc.)

Rumblings? Leaks? Rusty water? More than 10 years old? Don’t wait for a catastrophe: Be alert for these indicators that your water heater is about to fail.

Not only should you know where your water heater is, you should have clear access to it, says Carpenter. (Photo courtesy of Water Heaters Only Inc.)

Keep your water heater in tip top shape longer by following these simple tips for regular maintenance that could even lower your utility bills.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

The primary complaint about tankless water heaters is that, unless you pay for a really oversized one, they do not keep up with high demands like clothes washer or tub or shower, or if you have multiple hot water demands going at one time.

The reason hot water heaters are used is because they can heat up and store enough water for an ordinary demand like a shower or clothes washing, and larger ones like 50-60 gallons can handle multiple simultaneous demands. Out 60 gallon heater handles washing machine, dish wahser, and a shower simultaneously without going from hot to warm. An on-demand system heats the water as it flows through the heater, with production of hot water having to equal the total demand at any instant. This they can rarely do - especially gas-fired ones, for which the power is usually much cheaper than with electricity.

Google the search phrase - on demand water heaters

to read articles on the issue, and EPA and EnergyStar program writeups. Consumer Reports also has comparisons and evaluations (though you have to subscribe to read review articles).

There could be. Different municipalities have different rules (codes). However, I have never heard of a plumber being the code enforcement guy. I have never heard of a plumber being able to collect a fine from a homeowner. It may cost you $150 to bring it up to code, but that should be included in the repair cost. You would need to check with your city (usually Department of Code Enforcement or Plumbing Commission). If he put it in writing, you need to send them a copy.
?
Make sure they get a permit if required. Ask if they will haul away the old. Type of new heater installed and tank warrantee. What kind of parts will the price include, you should have an expansion tank installed and make sure they counter balance the pressure to match the static pressure in the home. Should also include new dielectic unions, do not reuse the old ones. See what the rate for extras is in case they need to do additional work. Check references if possible.

We called on Labor Day morning. He said he did not have a crew to do the work on a holiday but would call us first thing in the morning the following day. They did indeed call us promptly the next morning. Sent a crew out and while the 2 man crew worked to remove the old water heater a 3rd employee delivered the new water heater and supplies....More />
They explained all the work they were doing. Explained the necessary code required upgrades and noticed and fixed an inappropriate drain pipe slope for overflow discharge.

They were personable and professional. The company was very service oriented; calling us when they said they would, having the parts delivered instead of stopping the work here for the crew to leave to get parts, fully explaining the work they were doing and doing a great job of clean up after the work was completed.

Great job.

They normally fix it pretty quickly. They are usually very friendly. Last time we needed them it was kind of hard to get them out; it was easy to get hold of them but not to get them out here. I think they were overbooked. I had talked to them about doing something with a sump pump in my basement, but I don't think they are interested in doing it. They have always done okay for general plumbing work.

was too high for the unit and he would have to remove it and redo the plumbing connections. He also didn't like that the unit was taller and would require redoing the water and gas line routing. He tried to get me to take the unit back and then get another one and call him directly for the install so he wouldn't have to get a permit and inspection. I had him return the unit and got a refund.

I am not really satisfied with Hill s service. Installing the sewer line went fine. When they thought the toilet was stopped up they removed the commode and found out that the problem was in the sewer line. But the commode is still loose since they put it back. Also after they installed a water heater, our faucet water pressure was restricted. When I called them they said it was not their problem or fault. Finally, they did come back and figured it out and got it corrected.

I guess they did a good job because it is still working. At first when they were here, they had did something to the heater because water was leaking out and it was everywhere. They even poked holes in my wall. I had to turn it all into my insurance company and my insurance company told me that this company has done things similar to this in the past. Everything is done and over with now so I am glad about that.
