    Fucking Clearview charged me $200 service call and quoted me a $5000 water tank. Fuckers.
    Jesus, that is absolutely outrageous.

    That's the business model - charge you $100-300 (higher on weekends), then provide you with an outrageous quote that you are likely to accept because you're already $300 in the hole, and they sometimes offer to waive the site fee if you accept their price-gouged job which more than makes up for it on their end.

    Every "major" plumbing company that I called operates this way.

    Pete the plumber for the win. Getting a new 50 gallon (10yr warranty) installed for 1189. 1139+50 to change the vent from 3" to 4". They where here last week to replace a large chunk of our stack. Half the cost one of the other companies wanted.

    Yeah, I found that Pete's prices were about the lowest around, though in the end I went with Canadian Water Heaters as they were a hair cheaper than Pete and their customer service was excellent.

    I thought about Pete the Plumber if I had to replace mine...but the online reviews for the Rheem brand were less than favorable.
    Great if you have a 10 year warranty I guess but there's still the hassle if / when it breaks.
