Water Heater FAQs

Like most large home appliances, water heaters last between 10 and 12 years before they significantly lose efficiency or stop working. Regular maintenance and prompt repairs can extend the life of your water heater.

For water heaters located in a garage where they will not cause damage to the home we start offering preventive replacement at 10 years.  If your water heater is located inside the home where it can cause damage we recommend replacing the water heater every 8 years out of an abundance of caution to prevent damage to the home.  This is especially important if you live in a condo where a leaking water heater will not only damage your home but also your neighbors. 

It depends on your water heater’s age and why it stopped working. However, water heaters are tougher to diagnose than most appliances, so rely on a trained plumber to let you know if your water heater’s problem can be fixed with descaling, a quick repair, or requires a water heater replacement.

Schedule water heater descaling and maintenance once a year. Water heaters should be maintained once a year, including checking the valves, testing the water quality, and descaling the elements. Descaling a water heater means removing chalky minerals like calcium and magnesium that build a shell or scale over the heating coils.

Replaced valves and a drain pipe for an insurance demand. JJ was professional, cleaned up after repair, and sensitive to covering his shoes while in our home. It's not always easy to please the man of our house and he was very happy too! Highly recommend!

I contacted JJ Donaldson on Sunday and by end of Monday, he had gone in and jackhammered my flooring, found and replaced the leak and poured cement back in and evened out the flooring. I’m handling all of these issues from across the country, and JJ was immediacy responsive, reassuring and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend Merit Plumbing to everyone I know!

Had to replace an old hot water heater. Cost was reasonable and JJ came and replaced it on the holiday. Then the pipes in the wall were old and soft, so it had to be cut back to where there was good pipe. JJ Stayed, and cheerfully completed everything that need to be done to make it safe and secure. I can't tell you how much I appreciated the work being completed, and that he stayed until it was done right.
