Frequently Asked Questions

What are some signs that you may have water heater damage?
  • Your tap only runs cold water.
  • The temperature of your water reaches warm but never hot.
  • You hear a rumbling noise in your water heater.
  • Rusty, muddy or discolored water.
  • Your water smells or tastes metallic.
  • Leaking water heater.
  • Additionally, if your water heater warranty has expired, or your building codes have changed, you are due for a water heater change.
What causes water heaters to stop working?

There are several factors that can cause your water heater to stop working:

  • Internal rust: Sacrificial anodes (active metal rods) prevent corrosion. They typically last years, but they need to be replaced when worn down.
  • Sediment buildup: Minerals in your water sink to the bottom of your heater tank when water is heated. This especially occurs with hard water. Sediment build up over time can cause damage. You should flush your water once a year.
  • High water pressure: High pressure can bust your pipes and cause leaks. Keep your water pressure no higher than 80psi. Replace your temperature and pressure (T&P) relief valve when necessary.
  • Corrosive fumes: If you have poor air quality or corrosive fumes in the air, it can lead to water heater failure. Corrosives like ammonia or bleach should be kept at a far distance from your heater.
  • Wrong size heater: A water heater that’s too small can be overworked by all the people in your home who use the appliance. Breakdowns from overuse can occur. Make sure you consult with a plumber to get the right size heater for your household.
  • Old age: A good water heater will last you 8-12 years. If you are experience rust, bad heating elements, or a pilot light that won’t stay lit, it may be time to get a new heater.

What do you do when a water heater breaks?
  1. First, stop the water.
  2. Secondly, shut off the power.
  3. Next, remove any furniture or salvageable items from water-damaged areas.
  4. Clean the areas soaked with water. Run a dehumidifier to prevent mold growth.
  5. Make an insurance claim. Do not throw out your damaged water heater, as your adjuster will need it to assess the damage.
  6. Finally, call a plumber to repair, install or replace your water heater. Our trained professionals can get you back up in no time
What types of water heaters are available?

There are two categories of heaters, tank and tankless. They come in different models:

Conventional Storage Tank Water Heater

This is the most traditional and popular water heater. It consists of an insulated tank holding the water. The size of the tank reservoir determines how much water can be heated at once. Once your tank’s capacity is filled, it may take an hour for the tank to refill with hot water. When it comes to maintenance, tanks should be cleaned at least twice a year to avoid sediment build up and increase lifespan. Conventional storage tanks are the most affordable and easy to install.

Tankless Water Heater (On-Demand Water Heater)

Instead of a tank, the tankless water heater uses super-heated coils that fill with water and heat it as you need it (instead of continuously). Thus, water gets heated quickly and can truly be on-demand for large families. These work well in homes that use natural gas to operate their water heater. They can work in homes that use electricity too, but that can become costly. Tankless water heaters are extremely energy efficient and are considered green plumbing. The only downside is they will cost more than a regular water heater and may require home renovation to install larger gas lines. Tankless water heaters have an 8-10 year lifespan.

Heat Pump (Hybrid Water Heater)

These water heaters are uniquely powered by the heat in the air and on the ground. Typically, they use 60 percent less electricity than a traditional tank. These heaters do not work well in colds spaces (basements), because they rely on transferring heat from the surrounding air to operate. A heat pump also needs a lot of storage room --sometimes up to eight feet of vertical distance-- because the pump is located on top. They can also be one of the most expensive styles of water heaters to buy.

Solar Powered Water Heater

These tank water heaters draw their energy from the sun and are the most energy-efficient of all the styles. They are sourced by solar panels mounted on your roof. Naturally, they save you a lot of money on your electric bill especially if you live in sunny climates. However, a backup plan is often needed on cloudy delays. Solar Powered Water Heaters are environmentally friendly but expensive.

Condensing Water Heater

This style uses the unused natural gas fumes in your home to heat your water. They are the most energy-efficient and are best for homes that run on natural gas. Condensing water heaters require a large tank and are best for families that need a capacity of over 55 gallons. They are not easily available in smaller models.

How much does it cost to get a water heater?

The price to install a water heater will vary between the below factors:

  • Water heater brand quality
  • Plumber installation costs (especially switching from a tank to tankless water heater)
  • Permit cost
  • Labor required to bring your plumbing connections up to code
  • Size of your new water heater (measured in gallons)
  • The length of your warranty
  • Energy-efficient certifications and upgrades

Tankless heaters will have more upfront costs than tank heaters, but they are energy-efficient and eco-friendly, saving you money in the long run. Also, gas heaters are less expensive than electric heaters. Call our professionals today to get your water heater installed, replaced, or repaired!

We are new to the Plymouth area and had a sewer back up in our house we had only owned 1 week. We called and were told someone would be there in the afternoon. Then we were called and told around noon. Then we were called and told someone would be there in a half hour. Thanks so much for rushing someone over to remedy our issue. Great communication!!!

When I hear Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, I think Family! They are always there for you and have your back when you need them. I was doing a remodel and lets just say it was bigger than a bread box....and Plymouth Plumbing and Heating was there every step of the way! Jamey was the mastermind in the trenches getting things done, but the whole team was there supporting me. When there was a "bump" in the remodel I could call or text and knew it would be handled. Never had to worry when will it get done. Boom Done!I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for ALL your plumbing needs!

We live near Lake Michigan in an older home without a basement and for many years we have experienced problems of water accumulating in the crawlspace area under our main floor. We’ve asked several contractors and plumbers in our area to assess the situation, but none of them have offered any viable solutions. I decided to widen my search for answers and was drawn to the Plymouth Plumbing website. I called them and was able to set up an appointment a couple of days later for a free estimate. About 30 minutes before the plumber was due to arrive, I received a call from his office letting me know that he was running about 45 minutes late. The receptionist asked if I would be willing to wait or prefer to reschedule. I suggested 4 pm that afternoon and he arrived right on time. Jack Dellger is the third generation owner of a family business and has had a lot of experience with these water-related issues. He listened carefully to my questions, checked out the crawlspace, and then walked around the perimeter of the house pointing out where and how water could seep under the house when it rains. He gave me several suggestions about how to change the slope of the land so rain water would drain away from the house; where to seal up the wide cracks between our cement front stoop and the base of the adjacent siding; how to improve on the existing gutters, and where we needed to add additional ones. When I asked him for some recommendations of whom he trusted to do those jobs, he not only provided me with names, but offered to call them for me and see how soon they would be available to come and give us an estimate for the necessary improvements. Although he declined my offer to pay him for his consultation, he said that the next time we had any plumbing problems, he hoped we would give him a call. I enjoyed meeting Jack and appreciated the way he clearly explained everything. We will definitely contact Plymouth Plumbing and Heating for any plumbing issues that we may encounter in the future.

Updated Review: we got the bill and it was about $200 more than we were anticipating. I get that it was a weekend, but almost $600 to clean a main drain? Not happy about that! I wonder how much of that includes the 20 minutes the plumber spent messing around with the auger that was put away wrong from the last service, his words, while he was cursing the last person who used it, under his breath, 🙄Original review: We experienced an unexpected plumbing issue arise during the 4th of July weekend. We called Plymouth Plumbing and Heating, as well as about 10 other companies, on a Sunday of a holiday weekend. They WERE THE ONLY ONE to call us back and send a plumber out! Not all websites that say "24/7 emergency calls" actually mean it, because no one else was able to send a guy out on a Sunday.Thank you for your prompt response. We will call you again and would recommend you to others for a prompt and efficent experience.
