Comments: Cost was $1690.00 + tax. Water heater is available at Lowe's or Menards for about $600.00.. Additional parts of 1 valve and 2 flex pipes were used, less than $100.00. He was on-site for 90 minutes, and let's add 60 minutes (generous) for travel. That equates to $400.00/hr. Another issue is that tax was charged on the full $1690.00 and labor is not taxable.

Comments: I called them on a Thursday to install a new water heater, fully expecting to wait at least a week to get it done. He scheduled the job for the very next day. He asked pertinent questions about my old tank and gave me a quote over the phone. He got the job done quickly and neatly and made sure everything impacted was in working order before he left. Best service I've ever experienced.

Review Date: 07/09/2020 | Author: Patty B.

Comments: Very responsive and we had the new water heater w/in a day. It was a bigger size (75 gal)so hard work to get out and put in on a hot day, but all went well. Covered the stairs to basement, very professional, and I am happy to now have a plumber name to call upon again when needed.

Review Date: 05/19/2020 | Author: Jonathan B.

Comments: Replaced hot water heater on time and as quoted. Was professional and answered any questions I had. I will certainly start here for future problems/projects.

Review Date: 04/30/2020 | Author: Holly C.

Comments: Bob was very prompt in returning my call, assessing the situation and making his recommendation. My hot water heater (electric) was leaking and 15+ years old. I was able to send him a picture of the heater and it s location and he was able to give me a quote immediately. I had been doing my due diligence and chose Riethco based on all the above and Home Advisors ratings. Very pleased and have called on Riethco again with same 5 star service.

Comments: Great response time

Review Date: 10/08/2019 | Author: Chris R.

Comments: Quick phone call back and available later that day. The only knock would be that he didn't carry the part with him, the water heater controller (that I described to him on the phone that I troubleshot extensively the day before). But the controller ended up being under warranty (that he didn't originally install) so I only paid the labor.

Review Date: 08/28/2019 | Author: Justin C.

Comments: We were very happy with the quick service. Also happy that the fix was a minor one.

Review Date: 08/14/2017 | Author: Maria Y.

Comments: Very prompt service. I felt totally confident in the job especially because the same brand of water heater I already had was ordered. I requested the water heater be propped/lifted off the floor and even though he thought it was an odd request he found small pieces of wood to do as I asked. Another company was less expensive but I assumed the water heater quality might not be as good so I went with Riethco.

Review Date: 05/08/2016 | Author: Paul C.

Comments: He was on time (early), efficient, fast, and thorough. (Removed and replaced our H2O heater in 1 1/2 hours). He did it all himself, so has little overhead, meaning the price was $300 below one estimate, and $500 below another. Recommend highly!!

Comments: Great service from Riethco and Homeadvisor

Review Date: 10/08/2015 | Author: Maggie G.

Comments: Replaced appliances and had suddenly had no water pressure. Called another plumber and (for $205) they told us we needed to replace our pipes to correct the problem (for an additional estimated $800). Called Bob @ Riethco; he correctly diagnosed the problem as a clogged faucet--a cheap and easy fix. After that, we had him upgrade our faucet, replace our sink and plan on having him come back to take a look at our water softener. Would highly recommend him!

Comments: Did great job

Review Date: 05/13/2015 | Author: Diane E.

Comments: He was pleasant to talk to and had a joking manner. He knew exactly what he was doing and it was not easy. I had both front and back outdoor faucets replaced. Back one was easy. Front one was not. I have a slab foundation, so no access to pipes. He had to replace a whole length of pipe almost blindly, but got the job done. Really did not take that long for what he had to do. I finally have outdoor faucets after 20 years.

Review Date: 05/08/2015 | Author: David F.

Comments: The faucet I bought had a plastic drain tube. Bob told me he hated that kind of tube. A week later that tube is leaking and I have to call him out again.This was not due to his installation but the manufactures design.

Comments: Hired to replace our kitchen faucet but he knew right away that something was wrong with our pump turning on all the time. Replaced the pressure tank and the pump has been quiet ever since. We really appreciate him taking care of a situation that could have really cost us a lot of money in the future with a damaged pump. Would definitely use his services again.
