Recommendations for residential plumber?

Does anyone have a recommendation for a fair and cost-effective plumber? I live in Lakeside and need the pipe connections to my gas hot water heater tightened and resealed. Project estimate of 1 to 2 hours.

Nightly disruptions in Lakeside

Has anyone else living in the Lakeside neighborhood heard the nightly “pows” around 9:30 p.m. for the past week or so? Seems like a few of them go off each night sometime between 9-10 p.m., which has been making my gun-shy dog pretty anxious, barky, etc. Any idea what the noise is or where it’s coming from? It sounds a bit like far-off fireworks, which around July 4 seemed normal, but still going off and at around the same time each evening has me wondering.
