What is a Monkey Wrench Home Protection Plan?


A Home Protection Plan (HPP) is a Monkey Wrench Plumbing membership to protect your home for $39 a month. It requires a credit card on file and works just like your favorite streaming service. But instead of getting tv shows to watch, you get a white-glove plumbing service.


With our Home Protection Plan, you get:

  • A free yearly water heater maintenance

  • A free yearly plumbing evaluation

  • Savings from waived fees and discounts

  • A tailored plumbing experience


And that’s just scratching the surface. Let’s dive deeper into all the benefits you get with a membership.


Yearly Water Heater Maintenance


Water heater manufacturers recommend yearly maintenance. Maintenance is the process of cleaning a water heater to keep it running smoothly. Maintenance from Monkey Wrench Plumbing costs $249, but you get it free with the HPP membership.

  • Descaling the heat exchanger

  • Cleaning burner assembly

  • Checking flame and ignition rods

  • Inspecting gas and manifold pressures

  • Cleaning out blower and exhaust


We also keep detailed records of all maintenance we perform for your convenience. We submit these records to your water heater manufacturer for warranty purposes.

  • Free yearly maintenance covers one water heater. Additional water heaters cost $210 each.

  • Maintenance is to be used on a future service.


Yearly Plumbing Evaluation


Some people may believe maintenance and evaluations are the same, but they are separate services. In simple terms, a plumbing evaluation is a vital tool to identify future concerns. Our technicians inspect to make sure your plumbing is running correctly and efficiently. A yearly plumbing evaluation costs $400, but with the HPP membership, you get it for free.

During a plumbing evaluation, your technician will:

  • Check sinks, toilets, and drains are in working order and connections are secure.

  • Check washing machine connections

  • Test your water quality

  • Verify correct water pressure

  • Visually inspect accessible supply and water line connections

  • Evaluate the condition of emergency shut-off valves

  • Sewer/Drain Line Camera Inspection



With our Home Protection Plan plan, your savings add up quickly. You can save money on the previous two sections and by catching concerns before they become migraine-causing problems.

Extra Services

Is a Home Protection Plan Right for Me?


You are the master of your domain, so you get to decide if a Home Protection Plan is right for you. We do believe, though, that the best defense is a great offense.

By using the Home Protection Plan’s yearly water heater maintenance, you can keep your water heater running smoothly. Annual plumbing evaluations can prepare you for any issues before they turn into expensive repairs. And savings combined with exclusive membership services are icing on the cake for your future.
