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.

Sergio came out to my house to fix a leaking main water valve. He was very courteous, professional, and did a fantastic job. Also, the pricing is very fair as we all dread the potential bill for plumbing services. Total Plumbing Service has won a new customer here for sure!

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.

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.
