Default plumber rec?

Hey guys.
There's something wrong with either our water heater, or the pipes leading to it. Water spraying out of the wall (not a ton, but still).
Does anyone have a recommendation for a plumber in the east valley?
(I'm on my way to work, hubby is coming home to do what he can, will update with more details once I get to work.)

Okay. At work.
Walked into the garage, where the little closet where the hot water heater is, heard hissing. Looked in there, it was humid, but not hot. I see a lot of condensation, but no flooding. Shelf next to the water heater is covered in water (condensation). After some investigating, water is coming from a hole in the wall, behind the water heater. Water is warm, but not hot.
Husband got home, texts to say that it looks like there's a pipe broken that is an output from the water heater. He hasn't opened up the wall yet, but may (since the plumber will likely be doing it anyway).

Thanks. Should I say you recommended me to them?

Do you recall approximate lag time? As in you called them up and it took them how long to get to your house and fix things up?

Happy to report that things went well.

Called up Leak Doctors, got a call back in an hour (the voicemail is generic, doesn't indicate that it's even a business), and guy named Josh was out within about four hours. He called when he was on his way.

Buff guy, tattoos, very nice. Has a well-worn spiral bound book that has all his prices. To fix a leak in the wall (pipe out from the hot water heater had sprung a leak where two pipes were sweated together) about $165 + tax. Gave us quotes on other things we need fixed, said that the first item is full price, and then each other thing is discounted, like to fix the pool filler thing is $160 (not sure of actual price), then if he does another $160 charge thing during that same visit, it'd only be $100, etc.

He was quick, friendly, and seemed efficient.

glad you got it buttoned up, 165 seems reasonable for emergency service and repair

you did good

Thanks.

Seemed reasonable to us, too. I did research, made sure they were licensed, looked up reviews, etc, and all seemed decent, so... went with it.

Plus, we needed a plumber in our repertoire anyway.
