Frequently Asked Questions

Do you guarantee your work?

Yes, we stand by our workmanship. We offer a 1-year labor warranty on all of our services, ensuring you can be confident in the quality of our installations.

My hot water heater’s pilot light won’t stay on, what is the problem?

There are multiple reasons why your hot water heater’s pilot light might not be able to stay on. The most common of these are faulty thermocouples or gas control valves, dirty pilot tubes, or venting problems. Our plumbers will need to inspect your water heater to determine which of these issues is causing your problem.

How long do hot water heaters typically last?

Hot water heaters generally have a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. Following proper water heater maintenance procedures can vastly increase your water heater’s lifespan. Replacing the anodic protection rod every 3 to 5 years is one of the most important steps that homeowners can take to increase their water heater’s lifespan and protect against water heater leaks.

Why is my hot water heater making noise?

Rumbling noises coming from your hot water heater may indicate excessive sediment buildup. Our plumbers will be able to confirm this diagnosis and can flush and clean your tank to fix this problem. It is important to not wait – as sediment reduces your water heater’s efficiency and can lead to other problems.

Does it always make sense to repair a water heater instead of replacing it with a new water heater?

Repairs are usually cheaper than replacement, although there will come a time when your old water heater needs to be replaced. Corrosion in the water heater tank is one of the major concerns that cannot simply be repaired and often necessitates a replacement.
Our plumbers will evaluate your water heater and let you know how the repair costs compare to the cost of a new water heater installation so you can make an informed decision.

Can you repair tankless water heaters?

Yes, our plumbers are able to service all types of water heaters, including tankless water heaters (sometimes referred to as “on demand” water heaters), gas water heaters, and electric water heaters.

What areas do you service?

From our headquarters in Lexington, South Carolina, we provide service to Irmo, Columbia, West Columbia, and the surrounding areas.
