Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

I can probably help you determine if it needs to be replaced or not. I'm sorry but we are not a referral service. You could try HomeAdvisor.com for a free referral of a vetted plumber. Do you want to see if we can figure out if you need a new out or not? If so what is the problem?
