What is the lifespan of a water heater?

There are many factors that affect life expectancy of a water heater. In addition to age, these factors include maintenance, water quality and amount of usage. A traditional water heater will last about 10 to 15 years. Tankless water heaters can last up to 20 years because they supply hot water on demand and do not have to work continuously to keep water hot and last longer.

What is the most common problem with water heaters?

Plumber Near Me performs all types of water heater services. The most common problems we see concern leaking and water temperature.


Water leaks from the water heater can result from a faulty temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve, stuck valve, bad gasket, overheating, improper water pressure, and more.

Cold water

When your water heater just no longer provides hot water, it can be the result of lack of power, a faulty heating element, or malfunctioning thermostat.

Warm water

If water is not getting hot enough, it could be due to something as simple as crossed hot and cold connections or a heating element that is on its way out. You may also have an undersized water heater.

Really hot water

This usually results from the thermostat being set too high. For the best balance of heat and energy sufficiency, the U.S. Department of Energy recommends a setting of 120° F.

How long does it take a plumber to fix a water heater?

The answer to this depends on a variety of factors and is not as straightforward as one might hope. The duration of repair largely depends on the complexity of the issue. Simple repairs, such as replacing a thermostat or a pressure relief valve, might be completed within 1-2 hours. These components are generally accessible and don’t require as much time to replace.In contrast, more complex repairs, such as fixing a leak or dealing with sediment buildup, could take longer, possibly 2-4 hours. For instance, if the heating element has to be replaced, the plumber must drain the tank, remove the old element, replace it with a new one, and then refill the tank, a process that consumes more time.

How long should I wait to run water after a new water heater?

Firstly, understand that once your new water heater is installed, it needs to be filled with water before it’s turned on. This might seem like an obvious step, but it’s crucial – turning on the heater without water can damage the unit. This process is often referred to as “charging” the water heater. Once the tank is full, you can turn on the power or gas supply to the water heater. With electric water heaters, you’ll typically wait for the water to reach the set temperature before use, which could take around 30 minutes to an hour. For gas water heaters, the water may heat up faster, usually around 30 minutes, but the exact time can vary. Note that the water may contain some sediment or discoloration initially, as the new tank settles and any residual substances from the manufacturing process get flushed out. You should run the water until it’s clear.

How often should I flush my water heater?

For most households, flushing the water heater once a year is a good rule of thumb. This annual maintenance helps to remove sediment build-up from the tank, which can affect the efficiency and heating capability of your unit. In areas with hard water—water that has a higher mineral content—flushing might need to be performed more frequently, sometimes twice a year, to prevent excessive sediment accumulation that can lead to issues like clogs, corrosion, and reduced heating efficiency. Let Plumber Near Me help with that – call us today to schedule water heater maintenance!

How do I maintain my water heater?

There are steps you can take to extend the life of your water heater. This includes keeping the area around your water heater clean and maintaining access to it. You should learn how to turn off the water. Keep record of information such as the type of water heater you have, its capacity, model number and serial number. Also use vacation mode when you won’t be using it for a longer period of time.

Use the expert water heater services provided by Plumber Near Me to help with maintenance and hot water heater repair. Scheduled maintenance includes thorough inspection of the tank including the anode rod, testing the pressure relief valve, and flushing the tank. We have maintenance plans available to make sure your water heater and plumbing are in top working order.

    How do I know when my water heater needs replacing?

    Common signs that your water heater might need replacing include:

    • Tank leaks: When your water heater tank is leaking, you should replace it immediately. This is usually the result of pressure build up, and neglecting a leak can potentially lead to a tank explosion. The most obvious sign of a leak is a pooling of water around its base or visible corrosion on the sides of the tank. Find out more about our water leak repair services.
    • Noises: Loud knocking noises could indicate the buildup of sediment. As it hardens, it moves around the tank and causes noise. Flushing your water heater regularly can slow the process of sediment buildup.
    • Poor water quality: Rusty water is a sign that something is wrong. Discoloration or metallic odor can mean replacement of the anode rod is necessary or the tank itself is corroding. Cloudy water can mean sediment buildup. 
    • Too many repairs: If your calls for water heater services are climbing, it may be better to replace it instead. When your unit is more than a decade old and showing these signs, call Plumber Near Me for hot water heater replacement.
