How your tank water heater installation works









Schedule your Appointment

Contact us online or call us at (941) 225-2775 to schedule an appointment. We'll call you to confirm your time and send you a confirmation email with a picture of your plumber, so you know who to look for.



Get install options

We'll come to your home (for free) and talk with you about your water usage and preferences. We'll help you find a system that's perfect for your family, and then give you options with straightforward pricing for each.

On the day of the install, our team of plumbers will:

  1. Wear shoe covers and lay down drop cloths to protect your home.
  2. Install your new water heater tank (most likely within a few hours).
  3. Leave your home in the same condition we found it-if not better.



Give us feedback

If you're not happy, we didn't do our job right. After your installation, we'll send you a follow-up survey asking how we did. If you're not happy with our service, let us know.

Signs You Need
A New Water Heater

Once you begin to observe the following indicators, it's advisable to consider replacing your water heater.

Your unit is 10–20 years old

The majority of tank-style water heaters have a lifespan of up to 15 years. However, if you're not properly maintaining your water heater by performing yearly flushes and changing the anode rod every 4-5 years, you may have to replace your unit sooner than expected.

You keep running out of hot water

This indicates that your water heater is either undersized or nearing the end of its lifespan. In either case, it's unable to keep up with the demand for hot water in your household.

Your water bills have increased

This may indicate that your water heater is aging and becoming less efficient, resulting in increased water bills due to lower efficiency.

You see rust-colored water

The presence of brown or rusty water suggests that either your water heater or pipes are corroding. If it's determined to be the water heater, repairing it won't be feasible, and you'll need to replace it instead.

The tank itself has a leak

When the tank body develops a leak, and water begins to accumulate in the pan beneath the unit, it's the end of the line for your water heater. You'll have to replace it promptly.
