Frequently Asked Questions

How long will a water heater last?

It depends on many different factors. Your water quality and how much the system is used, will make a difference on how long it lasts. Normally a water heater installed today will last around 8-12 years. Water heaters that were installed 25 or 30 years ago were a lot different. Things just don’t last as long as they used to. However, with regular Inspections and maintenance you can keep it working longer than normal.

How do I winterize plumbing in areas that are exposed to severe, cold temperatures?

Even when you plan to heat your home all winter, the building could still have plumbing components exposed to the cold. On extremely cold days, the freezing temperatures could affect water lines by exterior walls or in poorly insulated crawlspaces or basements.

If you have a crawlspace, close the vents for the winter and cover them with insulation. Next, place foam pipe insulation over pipes within the crawlspace. Should you notice any gaps or cracks on the foundation, crawlspace vents, or basement windows, caulk them to prevent drafts or fill cavities with fiberglass insulation. Sometimes a pipe needs to cross a particularly cold space. In that case, you can protect it by wrapping it with electrical heat tape

Why do I have such low water pressure in my home?

Not having good water pressure is really a sign of not having good water volume or flow through through your pipes . It could be caused by a number of factors. The street pressure that’s being provided to you might be low. The well your on or sharing with Neighbors, doesn’t have much water pumping out of it. The pipes you have are getting old and are not allowing the water to flow as well, similar to a clogged artery . The way to increase volume is to install booster pumps, fix the well situation, or replace the pipe to get rid of the clogged arteries in the plumbing system.

Why does it take so long to get hot water?

You’re standing at the sink, staying for hot water to come out, but it takes practically forever. That’s because the hot water has to get from the heater to the faucet. However, it’s going to take a long time to get there, If the water heater is physically located a long distance down from the faucet.
There are Solutions to this problem. A simple and affordable solution would be to install a recirculation system to keep hot water at the faucet.
