Better Water Heaters

We started Better Water Heaters to provide fair pricing and quality service to the customers seeking water heater service or replacement. The truth is, most companies overcharge because they know you need hot water immediately and will probably pay a lot to get it quick. My typical customer is one who has price shopped the competition and have decided most companies either charge way too much or are hard to pin down to a firm price. We understand. You simply need a water heater and don’t want to deal with a sleazy salesman…you want to talk to a plumber….so give us a call and we’ll talk. At Better Water Heaters we do something quite rare in the plumbing business- install water heaters for a fair price. We grow our business one satisfied customer at a time; we don’t take advantage of a plumbing emergency and charge unreasonably. Your referral is important to us that is why we always will work to insure your complete satisfaction. We’re a small company and we keep our overhead low, because of this we don’t need to charge unreasonably. Of course we are licensed, bonded and insured and are very experienced at water heater installation and repair. We are experts in convention water heater repair and replacement, Tankless water heater installation, and other plumbing issues. We are the only water heater installation company in northern California that has earned the prestigious DIAMOND CERTIFICATION. We are also member of the Better Business Bureau. Our advertised prices include a quality water heater, basic installation and disposal of your old unit; Extra parts and labor required to do the job right, are additional. Call us for all your water heating needs. Estimates are always free and we never charge extra for nights, weekends, or holidays.

After my initial positive experience with Tim, I gave him the contract to install a grey water reclamation based irrigation system in my house. A couple of weeks into the project we found leaks under the flooring in my two adjoining bathrooms. Over the course of over 2 weeks Tim worked very slowly to correct this problem (on a time and materials basis), and on 9/13/14 he presented me with a bill (...

Description of Work
This is a mixed review, mostly negative. I originally hired Tim (Alvco Plumbing - CSLB#B585720, C-36) to install a grey water system. Before I decided to hire him he did a number of things pretty well: he fixed a sink trap in my bathroom that my handyman could never get to work, he installed a low flow toilet, and a low flow toilet adapter correctly, and finally he fixed my garbage disposal when my regular handyman could not figure out how to do so. I had a significantly worse experience when he tried to correct some leaks under my bathroom flooring. The short story: I had to redo the job and he ended up yelling at me abusively when I informed him of the problems with his work.

Mr [Member Name Removed] called me to inspect a leak in his bathroom that a previous contractor had not been able to repair or would not return to re do. I could see the poor workmanship and he did admit that he had been using an un licensed contractor to save money. I redid the work and he was very happy, He later requested that I install a water saving device which I did and he again seemed very...

He came and took some pictures of some leaking pipes. But they weren’t pictures of our pipes. They were pictures that he had taken previously some other place. In addition to that he cut out the central part of our drain system but there wasn’t anything wrong with it. He tried to charge us almost $3000 at the end of two or three days for essentially wrecking our plumbing. He happened to be doing a...

We moved into our new house in January and the guest bathroom did not come with shower doors so we selected and purchased our shower doors at a local home store and found Tim via Craigslist and found him to be knowledgable and easy to communicate with during our initial discussion which he quoted us for about 2 hours of his time to install the shower doors. When Tim arrived he helped me unload the...

We chose ALVCO services because he seemed extremely responsive and trustworthy during the initial meeting. He took time to explain the scope of work and explained the difference between his company versus the competition; also mentioned he would complete the job in five days and would ensure he would minimize impact to our daily activities with respect to the use of water. However, after receiving...
