Water Heater Replacement
Water heater replacement is another one of our specialties here at Total Plumbing. We only install Rheem water heaters from our plumbing supply house because they are of much better quality than the water heaters sold at big box stores. The average lifespan of a water heater is 10 years. If your water heater is past this age it’s time to replace it. Water heaters come with a standard 6 year warranty on the tank, we offer packages to extend this warranty up to 10 years. When replacing a water heater it is important to look at the method of installation. Total Plumbing installs all water heaters with hard copper piping. We do not use flex lines for the water connections or cut any corners when installing. All water heaters are installed in accordance with all local and state codes.
Water heaters are an important part of any home. They keep our water warm and provide us with years of service. In our experience most water heaters will last about 12 years. Once that time has come, it won’t be long before you begin to have hot water trouble.
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.
Don’t know how old your water heater is? Give us a call with the serial number off of your water heater.

Had them referred to me by a family friend. They are fair, transparent, and honest each time I've needed their work. Couldn't imagine going to anyone else for future plumbing issues.

I had a pin hold leak right past the water meter. City said its my problem. I called Total Plumbing to come take a look. We were scheduled for 9 AM they called me at 8:30 and said they were on the way. They were here early and ready to start working. They quickly identified the problem and made the repair. They tested and confirmed it was working. They charge by the hour and my issue was fixed and the hole that was dug was filled in well within that time frame. They use quality parts and charged a fair market price. I had budgeted over $300 for this fix but they took care of it well under half of what I anticipated. They were also kind enough to answer my questions and helped me locate the shutoff valve in my front yard at no extra cost. The technician Adam and his associate (I don't recall his name, sorry) were some of the best trades people I have ever worked with. These people and the work they do is critical to keeping us all happy and healthy. When my next plumbing need arises be it a leak or as part of a remodel I will be reaching out to Total Plumbing and asking for Adam and his team again. Thank you so much to Total Plumbing and their staff for taking care of my issue in such a professional and timely manner.

Just want to make sure I review companies that do a good job to help others. I had a new dishwasher that needed to be installed but a pipe was blocking access to the installation. They came out to cut the pipe and fit it behind the cabinet. They did a good job on that and also fixed a leaky sink. I had an issue with my garbage disposal afterwards and they came out promptly to fix it. Sergio was very polite and helpful in explaining what needed to be done. I was happy with the job done and also the level of customer service i got when i called for a follow up issue. Thank you.

Total Plumbing has been the best plumbing experience one could ask for. The people who answer the phone are honest and very courteous. Their quotes were way cheaper than competitors and all the plumbers they sent out were always on time, professional, and very trustworthy. I had a major repair and they gave me plenty of options and were accommodating to my time and schedule. Will not use any other plumbing company after using them!

James and Billy did an extraordinary job installing three water heaters at the same time. James, who managed the project, is very conscientious and wanted to be sure everything was done perfectly when he balanced the system. Billy was terrific and also wanted the installation to be done right. I would recommend Total Plumbing to anyone with great confidence.
