MET Plumbing Repair Tips

Knowing the age of your water heater is crucial, as the average warranty for such appliances is six years. Although some water heaters can last up to fifteen years, relying on such an old heater is risky and not advisable. Waiting until it fails before replacing it is not recommended, as the consequences can vary from minor inconvenience to severe property damage caused by leaking tanks. This is especially concerning for homeowners in our area of Texas, where most water heaters are located in the attic. If your water heater is ten years or older, we highly recommend having it inspected by a licensed professional plumber to ensure it is functioning correctly. To determine the age of your water heater, look for the name of the manufacturer (typically found at the top of the unit) and the serial number (often located on a sticker about halfway up on the heater). Use the manufacturer’s 1-800 phone number, available online, to call and provide them with the serial number. They will inform you of your water heater’s age.
