1/2″ Water Heater Mix Valve Installation

Water Heater Mix Valve
  • 1/2″ Water Heater Mix Valve Installation
    $450 (Condo)
A water heater mix valve allows you to combine hot and cold water to control the overall temperature of water. A valve installed near the hot water tank will ensure you receive tempered water to your bathtubs and shows and hot water to your laundry room and appliances. This valve doesn’t just help you save hot water, but also ensures your system runs efficiently. It’s important to make sure the valve functions well so you should inspect it often and repair or replace it when it’s damaged.

Signs that Your Water Heater Needs a New Mix Valve

It’s not easy to diagnose water heater problems without professional assistance. A plumber will perform several tests to determine the true cause of the problem before they recommend repairs and installations. However, there are some signs that indicate there might be a problem with the water heater valve and they’re mentioned below:

  • Water is too hot or too cold – If the water is too hot or too cold, there might be a problem with the valve. As mentioned before, the valve mixes hot and cold water to ensure you get the right temperature in your bathrooms. If you don’t get tempered water, you need to hire a professional to assess the valve and determine if there’s a problem.
  • There are leakages and water damage around the valve – Any leaks and water damage around the mix valve should be addressed immediately because this can be risky. The mixture of hot and cold water can place considerable amount of pressure on the pipes and valves so if they’re compromised in any way, you need to repair or replace them.
  • The valve has deteriorated – All plumbing installations have a limited lifespan, even those that are designed to withstand pressure, heat, and other such forces. If you see any signs of degradation on and around the mix valve, you should call a plumber to replace the fitting.

DIY or Professional Installation of Water Heater Mix Valve

Water heater valve replacement requires skill, experience, and the right tools. If you don’t install it correctly, your hot water supply system will be compromised and won’t work as you expect it to. You’ll have to deal with leakages, water damage, poor hot water supply, and wastage. Plumbers will make sure your valve is installed correctly and even offer warranties on their job. That’s worth spending a little extra money on a professional installation.

How Much Does It Cost to Replace a Mixing Valve?

Replacing a mixing valve does not take up much time. When considering the replacement cost, one would generally consider the accompanying price of materials and the labor required. It’s worth noting that the price will also depend on the material of the valve, its brand, and its accessibility.

It’s possible to spend about $550 to install a half-inch water heater mix valve in Toronto when all these factors get considered. Before accepting that cost, try exploring what other service providers are offering to find a better price.

At Cheap Plumber in Toronto, you may find similar services at a fair price. For a half-inch water heater mix valve, you will pay $395. For installing the mixing valve in a condominium, it costs $450.

Pipe In Powder Room and My Experience With CP

A few days ago the sink in the powder room started to leak. The pipe was corroded where the trap is located. I called Max and he sent Andres who replaced the pipe and left the powder room in perfect order. He was fast and efficient. I’ve used Max and his team for 10 years for major jobs replacing lead water lines in the front yard and installing a much-needed backwater valve under my house to prevent flooding during heavy rains. During a winter freeze, my pipes froze inside the wall and burst at midnight. Max’s team was here by breakfast and moved the vulnerable pipes from the exterior wall to inside the ceiling. Hardworking, decent, efficient crew.

Replaced Horizontal Sewer Line In Basement In 100 Year Old House

I was renovating the basement of my 100-year-old house to replace the very old crumbling clay horizontal sewer line out to the street. I had several unsatisfactory quotes from other plumbers. I then contacted Cheap Plumber. Max was very reasonable and very efficient and timely. They also suggested a backwash valve that will prevent the sewer from ever backing up into the house. I agreed and they provided an excellent price and did a superb job. This week, I decided to install the Moen Flo valve (sold by Home Depot Canada and that shuts off all water to the house – IF ever there is a leak anywhere in the house in the toilet or water tank etc. I immediately contacted Max – who provided an excellent price and was able to install it shortly after the valve arrived. I was very pleased as no leaks and they cleaned up afterwards. I will use Max and Cheap Plumber for any future plumbing jobs. I strongly recommend this company.

Back Water Valve Installation

Max and his team installed a back water valve in my house, replaced some of the water lines, installed new water meter for me. Everything was done quickly, professionally, perfect clean up, filled out and submitted the forms for the rebate from the city. When I noticed a tiny leak after the job completion, a technician was sent over within minutes and everything was fixed very quickly. The services were reasonably priced, and I would definitely recommend this company to anyone with plumbing needs. Thank you!

Drain Work

I had to get the water service line replaced because of the new smart water meter requirement. Got quotes on a monday. Went with Max and although I was a little concerned about the lack of reviews on Homestars, I went with my gut and my gut was right. The work was done by wednesday (in by 8:30 out by 3:30). Max and his guys were punctual, careful about maintaining site cleanliness and very respectful. His price was the best of three quotes and he is honest and straightforward in his communication. His follow up once the job was complete was great. I highly recommend Cheap Plumber for any plumbing issue you may have and I am happy with my new water pressure!

Cracked Soil Stack

Our 98 year old cast iron soil pipe needed replacing. Replacing it was tricky as we had a newly renovated kitchen and basement bathroom and the stack was embedded between the outside brick wall and the new tiles and cabinets. Max and his crew did an amazing job of replacing the stack with only minimal damage to the basement bathroom and none to the kitchen. He then had a crew come in to restore the wall, tiles, etc in the basement. The team is hardworking, trustworthy, and professional. This is the second job they have done for us and both times we were more than satisfied. Ps. They are also just really nice people. Worth every penny.

Andrew did a great job fixing our drain. He was punctual, polite, knowledgeable and very patient with my questions. He quickly identified the problem (tree roots in drain pipe) and worked hard on snaking the tough roots until he was satisfied everything was clear. We were so lucky to have his help. Thanks Max and Andrew!
