Does your water heater need repair? Or are you in need of a new water heater? Total Plumbing provides water heater repair and installation. In our experience the average water heater lasts ten to twelve years. There is some water heater maintenance you can do to help extend the life of your water heater.
Water heaters of course hold water and therefor build up sediment at the bottom of the water heater. It is a good idea to release the sediment every few months to help extend the life of your water heater. Below is a video of a homeowner, just like yourself, who has a step-by-step process on emptying the sediment from your water heater.

Water heaters can have several issues over the life. Lukewarm water or no hot water, pilot light issues, water heater leaks and pipe breaks. Total Plumbing is an expert at water heater repair. We offer solutions to all these issues and can offer electric to gas conversion as well as upgrades to your existing water heater.
If your water heater is beyond repair and requires a replacement, there are several options. Before we install your new water heater, we’ll discuss all the options with you. We’ll provide a small summary of some of the options below.
Conventional Tank Water Heaters – Your typical home water heater is a conventional tank style and holds anywhere from 20 gallons to 100 gallons of water. Most conventional tanks utilize gas or electric. These tanks store up water and release it when requested.
Tankless Water Heaters – Tankless water heaters, also called instantaneous, only provide hot water as need. This saves you money on your water bill. Hot water also is available more quickly. They are designed to heat water directly, without the use of a tank and are more efficient than conventional water heaters. A conventional tank has to reheat the water as it cools off, but since a tankless water heater heats the water as it passes through, energy and water are both saved.
