Customer Reviews About Our Hot Water Tank Services

google 5 star plumber reviews

I was very impressed with Alex from John the Plumber He answered all my questions, was not a pushy sales person. Very professional young man Great job done in little time. I believe Alex and the second Alex who came to help remove the tank will be a great asset to this company. Completely honest and above board with everything. I will certainly recommend these young men. My invoice was exactly what we discussed. Alex was courteous and polite. I asked for his card so I can recommend him.

I was delighted to receive same day service to fix the hot water tank that had stopped working. The gas technician representing John the Plumber was punctual and professional. He took the time to explain the necessary repairs and answer all of my questions. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to family and friends

The technician Mukaley did a fantastic job installing a brand new hot water tank in my home. He was prompt, had great communication and was a pleasure to deal with. I would not hesitate to use John The Plumber and Mukaley in the future.

We called John the Plumber one day and made an appointment for the next day. They showed up right on time, assessed the jobs, gave me a very good quote and on my word went straight to work. Instead of being short staffed four guys showed up. There was Billy working on the hot water tank while Garrett was at the bathroom sink and Dawson was working with Geoff on pipes in the basement. They seemed to be one of the happiest and friendly crews I’ve seen and they were extremely polite and professional. They finished the job, cleaned up and were out of here in a relatively short time after giving us a clear explanation of everything done. What else can I say? This is now our plumbing company. Thanks guys!!

Immediate phone response, and the tech who came to install our new hot water tank & outdoor tap was fantastic. He ended up needing to do the install mostly on his own, taking more time than he expected, and had a fantastic attitude and was very engaged the whole time. Walked me through the tests he’d done & how to service the tank going forward, explained everything knowledgeably and clearly, and tidily cleaned everything up after. Asked lots of good questions and broke down the estimate on a way that was transparent and easy to follow. Really quick and fantastic service, very grateful.
