Say Goodbye to Endless Rental Payments

Water heater rentals, typically costing $35 to $60 + HST per month, attract homeowners due to their lower initial expenses. While renting spreads costs over time, it leads to higher long-term expenses.

What if you could own your water heater with similar financial ease?

For the third time of late we had a hole in the water line into the refrigerator. Another plumbing company spliced the line and put in a coupler. Then another hole would occur. We suggested the whole line needed to be replaced. The other companies said they did not know how to do this. We contacted John the Plumber. They came quickly. They suggested the plastic line be replaced by copper. The work was done efficiently, cleanly and within the quote. They even replaced the shut-off valve I had never liked. I would use John the Plumber again and recommend their services to others.

I had a somewhat clogged kitchen drain for quite some time, I mean it would drain but burping sound could be heard seconds later until 2 days when it got completely clogged. Not only the entire drain that runs across the house needed unplugging but yrs of inattention caused the vent to also get pluggled. A job too big for a homeowner with a plunger. Thanks Makulay, Jeff and Eric, for seeing the job through to the end.
Happy that i called! Jonathan was friendly and informative, and had our issue fixed in no time.. Shout out to the receptionist who took my call and calmed my fears as water poured through the ceiling. Thank you so much!
Jonathan was excellent, he was polite and very knowledgable. He quickly assessed that the toilet was not an issue and investigated where the problem originated. He kept me informed the entire time as to what was wrong, how we needed to fix it and how much it would cost. Prices were reasonable and the work was top notch.
