    5.0 Matt M. West Orange, NJ

    Fast, helpful, professional, and fair pricing. I recently had a sump pump failure which ruined my hot water heater heaters. I reached out to several companies and Dr Water Heater responded quickly and prioritized the timing of the team’s visit. I was without hot water so a few days made a big difference! The entire process was helpful without making me feel pressured, and extremely thorough and professional throughout. I would highly recommend this service.

    The plumbing job is excellent. But some of their estimates was not clear. estimate price and actual invoice price was different. I recommend that, if you can, to get a written estimate before ordering. If it is so, you can avoid this kind of problem. The job itself is excellent.

    5.0 Richt D. Budd Lake, NJ

    Dr. Heater is a truly professional who knows what and how to solve the problem. Fast and easy fix. Donâ t hesitate to call him

    5.0 Naseem C. Mine Hill, NJ

    Probably a little more than "others" in terms of cost but fair and well worth it! Tony responded immediately, answered all my questions, scheduled the work promptly, showed up on time, completely the installation in a timely manner, explained everything clearly and left the work site and my house clean! Amazing. Probably one of the best experiences I've had with a contractor. Also, personable people. And Tony was present with his guys when the work was being completed.

    5.0 Kevin H. Cranford, NJ

    Tony responded within minutes of my HomeAdvisor quote request and scheduled a free estimate for the following day. He took the time to walk me through the various options for our water heater installation, guided me through the steps necessary to receive an energy efficiency rebate, and was quick to send a proposal the next business day. Tony's crew was professional, did not cut any corners, and took the time to answer my questions. Excellent work - would definitely recommend Doctor Water Heater!


    Got immediate response and work was done very quickly. Tony is very knowledgeable and has decades of experience. Very happy with their work. A good experience.

    5.0 Stephen R. Pompton Lakes, NJ

    Very prompt, thorough, and knowledgeable. Got the water heater installed the same day I called. Saved me a lot of stress.

    Response from Company:

    Thanks, Steve!

    5.0 Barbara M. Roseland, NJ

    Tony was quick, responsive and a pleasure to work with. He is quite knowledgeable. He and his crew did a fantastic job replacing my 75 gallon hot water heater. He did it all in one day. I'm very pleased.

    1. Verify Trade License
      HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
    2. Verify Insurance
      As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
    3. Verification of State Business Filings
      For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
    4. Criminal Records Search
      HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
