Wrench Re-Pipe
Wrench Repipe is a flat out life saver. About seven years ago i had my hot water heater replaced with a tankless flash hot water heater. It was a bit expensive, but loved the convenience. With a large family it was great never running out of hot water. But last year we started having problems. The hot water would suddenly stop, it wouldn't turn on sometimes and other strange things. Last week it stopped working all together.The plumber who originally put in our flash tankless was long gone, so we called one of those recognizable plumbing companies that advertises any drain for $99 because they stated tankless hot waterheaters on their website and it was terrible. The plumber seemed to know what he was doing, but the whole thing was a disaster.At first he said the wrong exhaust pipe had been used, not enough ventilation, we needed a water filter and it had never beed scale-serviced. The original guy never mentioned scale-serivicing and we had our suspicions about his skill level after it had been installed.I don't think anyone is ever prepared for when something like this unexpectedly happens, and we certainly weren't prepared for the type of money the current plumber was telling us we needed. We asked if he could do something to just get us by for a few months and he said he could, but could not guarantee exactly how long it would work, but it was around one to three months. That was perfect!!!Thats where the problems started. This guy started taking the flash tankless apart and couldn't put it back together. We had no idea this type of thing could happened with a reputable plumbing company. He claimed the flash tankless was so far gone it couldn't be put back together which frankly seemed not believable. Never the less the plumber said this unit couldn't be repaired and we had to go with a new, and very expensive BTW, flash tankless. At least we were only charged $256, but thought for that amount it should've been put back together. But at least this is the point we started making progress. I mentioned our current situation to a friend and they mentioned having a friend that had a great flash tankless installed by a Riverside local plumbing company. That's when we discovered Wrench Re-Pipe! It's a very small company and got a voicemail, but was pleasantly surprised to get a phone text back a little over an hour later. The plumber messaged he was on a job and would get over as soon as he could. Later that evening, we received a text saying he was on the way.When Alan arrived, he confirmed there were plenty of problems with the original installation, even mentioning it had been put in the wrong place and the exhaust pipes were even dangerous. He was going to try to put together, but somehow the cup holding various screw had spilled and said putting together a flash tankless with unknown parts would get us into trouble.Plan B was explained very thoroughly and simply and we ended up going with an affordable flash tankless but decided to upgrade the scale filter to a soft water system at our flash tankless. Soft water is great!!! Of course money was an issue, BUT the system Alan put in with the soft water upgrade was a few hundred dollars more than the system the other plumber had quoted for a cheap flash tankless without even a basic canister scale filter.If you have problems with your flash tankless, Wrench Re-Pipe is the best by far. He even helped with a partial payment and holding a check for 2 weeks. All I can say is wow and thanks!!!

P R Plumbing & Drain
Our rented Condo in Riverside recently had an in ground leak i.e. under the living room floor/cement. We called several plumbers, who were either too expensive or estimated a lengthy time to complete the job. We finally called Rick. He understood our dilemma and gave us an estimate on what it would take to get the job done. He was at the site within 30 minutes and completed the job in approximately three hours without any huge surprises or delays. We highly recommend Rick for all your plumbing needs.

Very prompt and polite. Took care of my problem quickly and professionally. I have had other plumbers out before for the same problem and they were more expensive and their workmanship didn't compare.

Called Dove Plumbing on a Saturday morning and they arrived an hour later, diagnosed the problem, made the repair and charged me a fair price. I couldn't have asked for better service and I'm happy to recommend him.
Tips & Advices
  • Are you licensed and registered?
  • Are you insured and bonded?
  • How many years have you been in business?
  • What, if any, professional associations do you belong to?
  • May I have a list of references?
  • Do you offer a written warranty for your work?
  • Will I need a permit for this work?
It is important to have a written warranty for any work or repairs done to the plumbing in your house, especially if it is a major repair. Look for a professional  who is willing to  stand by his or her work.
Before you hire a plumber, contact their past customers if you're able to. These people can be a wealth of information if you ask them the right questions. Pose the following queries to these former patrons when you get the chance:
  • Were you pleased with the work done?
  • Was the project completed on time?
  • Did the plumber give you a written warranty and guarantee his or her work?
  • Were there any unexpected costs that arose?
  • Would you hire this plumber again? If not, why?
A permit provides added assurance that the work is done correctly. Having this in place means an inspector will check the work your contractor or plumber does to ensure he or she did the job correctly. If you plan on putting your house or commercial building on the market, a real estate agent and prospective buyers will want to check any large work you did to make sure it was done properly.
A trustworthy plumber will have both commercial liability insurance as well as be bonded. The insurance and the bond protects the plumber from paying for any damages made to your house out of pocket. Having professionals that carry both of these policies can protect all of you from any mishaps that could occur while they work on your building.
