Water Heaters

Your water heater should continuously deliver hot water when you bathe, do dishes, mop floors, and wash the dog. If you are waiting for the water to get hot, or you run out of hot water, you may have a problem with your hot water tank. Call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer for all of your water heater needs. Ask us about our lifetime no-leak warranty on electric water heaters, and options on tankless water heaters.

Stay in Hot Water

The traditional hot water heater pulls in fresh water, heats and stores it, and then delivers it upon request. This cycle repeats itself multiple times per day and that’s a lot of work on the hot water tank.  Hot water tanks tend to corrode and then leak as they age. To avoid problems that may arise as a tank ages, hot water heaters should be replaced after 10 years of service. 

If your hot water tank is over 10 years old, call Raymark Plumbing and Sewer today. Our expert technicians will provide pricing for a new tank, install earthquake strapping, install an expansion tank if needed, and haul away your old tank. Don’t wait for a leak or a malfunction to occur. Call Raymark to ensure you and your family can rely on hot water whenever needed.

Maintain Your Water Heater

  • Every two years, ask a certified service technician to inspect your water heater. Raymark technicians check the drain valve for signs of leakage and make sure your tank is performing as expected. As a result, your hot water tank may perform longer.
  • Contact Raymark Plumbing and Sewer to check your hot water heater and keep it operating efficiently.

Repair or Replace Your Water Heater

Since hot water heaters are designed to last about 10 years, it is usually more economical to replace a tank around that age rather than repair it. You may wait longer to replace the tank if it’s working well, but we’ve found that repairing tanks 8 years and older is not cost effective. In addition, make sure an older tank is located in a place where a leak will not cause property damage.

Below are signs your water heater needs to be repaired or replaced:

  • Less hot water than usual may result from loose wires, failing elements, or a dip tube needing repair.
  • Water suddenly too hot or too cold is usually a thermostat problem.  Check the thermostat to see if it is working. Ask your household members if anyone turned the temperature up or down. Our plumbers report that this often happens.
  • Leaks can form due to a loose pipe, a faulty pressure relief valve, or cracks and holes in the tank.  A tank continuously expands and contracts as it heats and cools down.  This continuous fluctuation weakens the tank over time and creates those cracks and holes.
  • Strange noises can indicate sediment building up at the bottom of the tank. Call Raymark to assess this and all of your water heater problems.

Water Heater FAQs

  • Does Raymark install tankless water heaters?

    Raymark installs the Navien brand of tankless water heaters. Call us to see if tankless would be a good choice for your home’s hot water needs. 

    One advantage of tankless is that it can save space.  A disadvantage is tankless costs more than standard water heaters.

Called on a holiday morning with a toilet crisis (it WAS a crisis because we only have one, and it was completely clogged) – Joe promptly came out and remedied the situation within the hour. Expected a long wait and a hefty bill but no such case. Joe additionally advised us to replace our old, inefficient toilet sometime in the future. Not the first time we’ve called Raymark and won’t be the last.

Jose was awesome: gave my kitchen faucet a quick temporary fix while I got a new fixture, and then installed the new one perfectly. Brittany (in the office) made sure Jose got here as soon as possible!

Hayden and his team were fantastic. Fast, high-quality work at an affordable price. They have a lot of experience dealing with older buildings, and I would highly recommend Raymark for anyone living in a building or home with older pipes.

Ty and his assistant did a great job replacing pipes under our kitchen sink and attaching earthquake straps to the hot water tank. Ty was very patient in explaining the position of the straps. I would ask for him again in a heartbeat…. They were on time and finished very quickly.

Had a clog that was filling up my basement. The guys at Raymark found the problem and replaced the pipe. After the pipe was replaced they made sure the rest of the plumbing was in working condition. Their attitudes were great and they worked hard. Very satisfied customer.

Personnel were very warm and professional, and plumbers did a great job with both explaining and showing what they were doing. They addressed all concerns and were prompt in getting back to me. It was a big job, new sewer pipe put in from the house to the street.

Good morning, Raymark. Thanks, Anthony, for sending Dan to the rescue last week. We hadn’t been struck by an earthquake under our kitchen sink after all. Dan tightened the wobbly faucet, as well as its companion spouts, then wrestled the obstinate spray hose into line. Ingenious, he cobbled a defense so the hose could avoid tangling in the pipes. Dan is genial, and we really appreciate his visit.

Sincerely yours,
