Some signs your hot water heater is going bad in Pasadena, CA are:
- You notice the water from your faucets is rusty.
- You hear unusual noises coming from your water heater.
- You notice inconsistencies in your water temperature.
- You notice a leak from your water heater’s tank.
If you experience any of these issues, you should consider getting your water heater replaced. As a water heater ages, the price to repair it will usually outweigh the price to replace it. Contact us today to find out more about getting your hot water heater replaced.
It costs between $900-$1,900 to replace a water heater in Pasadena, CA. The price can vary depending on:
- The cost to remove the old unit and install the new unit.
- The type of water heater you want installed (tankless, electric or gas).
- The contractor's hourly fees.
Tankless water heaters cost more initially, but last longer and run more efficiently than standard water heaters, which provides you savings in the long run. To learn more about getting your water heater replaced, call us today.
Trenchless sewer repair is very effective at repairing damaged pipes. For pipes that are broken or damaged, trenchless sewer repair works just as effectively as traditional pipe repair and can last 50-100 years. However, it is not the correct solution for all pipe repairs, since some pipes are damaged beyond repair and would not benefit from trenchless methods. Give us a call today to learn more about our trenchless sewer repair options!

Our Reviews by City
The service guy Jose was great. But we were told it's under warranty and they later said they won't cover it under warranty. Warranty sucks.

Experienced, professional and friendly plumbers. Good at explaining problems and solutions. Beware service can be on the more extensive side and the products they sell way over priced. But they are always good and prompt.

Thanks for sending a great technician. I have worked with Gary before. I appreciated his thoroughness and step by step approach. He kept me informed on what he was doing and why and also updated me on where we were with the cost. Also appreciated their flexibility on timing the service.
Jennifer - Pasadena, CA
Gary Preston of Ace Pelizon has been my plumber of choice for several years now! He is a pleasure to work with, and I really appreciate his candid, low-pressure communication about price and options. He is a seasoned professional who can handle any job with expertise. Today, Gary and fellow tech Daniel spent almost the entire day on my property and did a fantastic job taking care of issues that I had let go for too long: disintegrating pipes, leaking toilets, clogged drains, etc. It was so bad that the whole family had wound up brushing our teeth in the kitchen sink! By evening I had working drains, toilets, showers, and a brand new kitchen faucet reset neatly into the aging 1938 tile backsplash, which required Herculean effort and care by Gary. I remain a super fan of Gary Preston and Ace Pelizon and I never hesitate to recommend the company!
Ann - Pasadena, CA
Gary was great, friendly and explained the work that needed to be done. Replaced a shower fixture which another plumber had said would require breaking through the wall to fix. Offered several fixture choices for the dripping kitchen faucet that needed to be replaced (I went with the economy version) and installed double valves for better shut off control, recommended and installed an auto shut off valve for the gas. Would definitely call again. Hoping to do a shower install if codes permit.
K.D. - Pasadena, CA
Gary and Daniel provided excellent service when they repaired a major water leak at our house. After completing the repair they stayed until it was time to turn the water back on to make sure the leak was fully repaired and that all of our faucets in our house had the correct flow. Our kitchen sink flow was decreased when the water was turned back on and they problem solved the situation and got the flow back to where it should be. I couldn't be more happy with the quality of Gary's and Daniel's and would recommend them and Ace Pelizon Plumbling to anyone who who needed a plumber!

Ed - Pasadena, CA
The best service, customer for life. Starting with Carissa to Kevin the "magic man" all the way to John who picked up after hours.
Extremely proficient and honest person.
Ed - Pasadena, CA
Donna - Pasadena, CA
Gary was very professional . He showed up on time and got right to accessing the problem. He gave me a few options. You could tell he was not taking advantage of me. He did a great job in repairing my toilet. He also stood behind his work and he recommended a restoration service for my carpet. It was an awesome experience working with him and Ace Pelizon. I will definitely recommend him and the company to others.
Steve - Pasadena, CA
Matt always knows what he's doing, no baloney from him!
Lynne - Pasadena, CA
Matt doesn't try to sell me something I don't need, and I trust that what he is saying is correct. He fixes whatever is broken. Even though a leak he fixed started leaking again that day (old pipes!), I know it's not because he didn't do a good job, and I'm not worried that he won't come back and make sure it is fixed.
Carolyn - Pasadena, CA
Rob gave a very clear explanation of what the problem was, what the solution was and what the cost would be. They arrive on time, fixed little problems that I was not aware of and did a great job of cleaning up after the job was finished. Both Rob and Ethan were very pleasant to work with. I look forward to working with both of them in the future. I have already recommended Ace Pelizon Plumbing to a friend. Thanks again for great service, Carolyn
Understand the problem before you start; detail, detail, detail
Business owner - Pasadena, CA
After input from a city consultant and a contractor we requested a leak detection with is very expensive. Gary walked the job from city meter at the side walk; it showed we had a leak. He said "I'd like to save you some money". Let's start with basics.He then inspected kitchen and rest rooms in the store. He discovered rust and grit from old pipes. He shut off the valve on a toilet and went to the city meter. It had stopped showing a leak! He replaced the fill valve the problem, cleaned drains and other kitchen problems and for a few "Hundred Dollars" not "thousands" We are in great shape.
Alan - Pasadena, CA
