It’s “raining” water heaters at Heffner Plumbing!

I have replaced 4 water heaters over the past week which is unusually high for me as a 1-man shop. During the winter months, the failure rate for water heaters goes up as the incoming water is significantly colder than it is in the warmer months of the year. If you have a water heater that is 10 years old or older, be sure to check your water heater regularly for leaks at the top or bottom. This would be especially true for water heaters that are located in unheated garages. Getting a water sensor that has an alarm that will go off or send a text message when water makes contact with the sensor can be very helpful to determine when your water heater begins to leak.
