The technician was prompt to call with ETA and arrived on time. He explained my options and possible causes and what was best was to replace. This is the second one we have bought from them. The first lasted 10 years. Technician T.E. was very professional, thorough and quick.”

Within 45 minutes of calling Water Heaters Only, their rep Ron G called. After a few questions, he stated he had all the equipment needed in his truck and appointment set later that day. Within three hours Ron was able to install a new heater, bringing it up to current code and removing the old one. Ron was professional and fully answered any questions. I would highly recommend him should the need arise.”

“Positive: Punctuality, Quality, Responsiveness

Woke up today to find I had no hot water and a pool of water in our backyard. Water Heaters Only to the rescue. Within 20 minutes of my call Tony Edwards showed up and within about an hour and a half I had a brand new water heater that was tethered (my last one wasn’t earthquake proof). Tony made the whole process enjoyable. He was pleasant and helpful, showed me exactly what he was going to do and what he did once finished. We chatted, my dog liked him, and he really was a terrific representation of the company. So polite, kind and knowledgeable. Very thorough too, he made sure I saw everything that he did and approved. Really thrilled to have this fixed so quickly and expertly. The bill was about what other plumbers quoted and they honored a Yelp coupon. For service this fast and this good they are a great deal”

“We received excellent service from Dave P at the end of last year. He is an outstanding representative for your company. He replaced the water heater in our mother’s house and since it is an old house with old pipes it presented him with extra problems that he solved expertly with a positive attitude and a smile. We will definitely recommend your company to friends and family. Thanks so much.”

“I had a leaking old school water heater that I needed replaced in a hurry…wanted to upgrade to gas tankless, what made this operation even more difficult is that the water heaters at the town house complex are all on the 2nd story roof! Mike C was undaunted by the challenges of the installation. He was efficient informative and was in and out with little impact to my daily schedule….. and damn it was hot that day. Totally satisfied and much appreciated.”

“Sunday morning no hot water. Tried relighting and pilot would not stay lit. Went to home improvement store and asked. They said the lead time was two weeks. Called Water Heaters Only and they set me up for an appointment the next day.

I bought a replacement part started a band aid repair to hold me over but then Water Heaters Only called and said they could be out in about an hour.

Mario answered all my questions and was in and out in a little over an hour. His work is great and he cleaned up after, including hauling away the old water heater. Recommended.”

“The service was fast (within hours!) and the WH was installed professionally and with everything fully and completely explained. Mario, who was our Tech, was a pleasure to deal with and took great pride in his workmanship – and it shows! He explained every detail and answered every question with the knowledge and confidence of someone who has been doing this for a very long time. Thanks!”

“After 20 years of hot water service, our water heater started leaking (4-2-19). We called the telephone number on the side of the tank. The same company responded. The company knew the history of the water heater. The company assigned Tony, a well trained, experienced,customer oriented installer and technician. He responded by telephone. He showed up on-time with all of the necessary equipment and a new water tank. Within a few hours he completed the removal, replacement, installation and testing. He explained how the new system works, and the reason for the plumbing code changes. This is why we keep using the same company for our water heater needs.”

“Water Heaters Only had installed my water heater back in 1999. I called them again when it was time to replace. They were able to install my water heater the same day I called on 3/30/19. Mario was the technician and was very polite and extremely professional.”

“I run a laundromat. Hot water is important. I agreed and they did the job SAME DAY! At the price of 14,600 that included all material, removal, dumping and labor. I find that to be a good cost for what I got and the efficiency of it. awesome company. Don’t go anywhere else!”

“Our water heater was dying. I called this morning at 9 AM. The call was answered immediately by a living human who told me that a tech would call me at 10. At 9:56 my phone rang and I spoke with nice guy named John who listened to my story, gave me options, gave me an estimate, and told me that he could be to our place between 11 and 11:30 to check it out and replace (ours was too old to fix.) He arrived at 11, checked out the situation, explained my options again and gave me a price which was several hundred below other places I had called. I elected to do the job, John explained what he’d be doing and how long it would take, and began work. Two and a half hours later we have a sparkling new water heater and I’m a very happy customer.”

The technician, Tony, got here and had replaced it within three hours of my call. I’ve done business with WH Only for a long time and have been happy with every transaction.”

“Tony came by my home on 7/22/16 to offer me a quote on replacing my 75 gallon gas water heater. Out of the three quotes I had received, Water Heaters Only came in with the most reasonable apples to apples price. I asked when they could perform the work and Tony said he had the tank in his truck and could perform the work on the spot. I pulled the trigger and Tony went to work answering all of my questions along the way. Stellar work, stellar technician. Thank you!”

Andrew E. Santa Monica Area, CA. Provided by:

“Provided honest quote over the phone that helped me recognize ‘payless water heaters’ was ripping me off (by almost double). They had a technician at my door within an hour, and the installation complete for very close to the phone estimate 2 hours later. This is a great company to work with.”

Joules T. Santa Monica Area, CA. Provided by: 

“They clearly communicated when TONY the installer would arrive, and he arrived very promptly to the arranged time. Other contractors would not show and not have the curiosity to call, so this put them ahead of others before they even did anything. He actually evaluated the problems and clearly explained the options. The installation was done cleanly and complied with the codes. He had everything on the truck, so no running out to Home Depot for parts. He stuck to the quotation that was provided and provided great operational instructions. I would recommend them highly.”

Robert S. Santa Monica Area, CA. Provided by:

“Water Heaters Only is an A+ company. David, my technician on May 29, 2016, quickly installed a new water heater and took away the debris. He was cheerful and professional. I am very pleased with the exceptional job David did for my mother, Gay M.”

Donna L. Santa Monica Area, CA. Provided by:

” This is a repeat from an install made in 1999. It was a clean install and again it was clean and fast. The office called to confirm the appointment and Brad called to confirm arrival. I would highly recommend this company.”
