We Recommend State Water Heaters

DB’s Plumbing and Drain® installs high efficiency State water heaters with better designs and bigger energy savings than ever.

No one builds durability into a product better than State. They test their water heater product in some of the toughest conditions to ensure they last longer and provide many years of hot water. They have developed enamels that flex with water temperature extremes to ensure a longer product life. In addition to the manufacturer warranty of 6 years on the water tank, DB’s Plumbing and Drain® backs their work with a warranty of one year for parts and labor.

Optional Features When Installing a New Water Heater

We offer several optional additions to your system to ensure it is as efficient and functional as possible.

Some of these features include:

  • Water alarms: These go off when your water heater leaks, allowing you to take corrective action before the problem grows worse
  • Pressure regulators: Keep water pressure from exceeding a pre-set limit…that protects the unit and connecting pipes from leaking or bursting
  • Timers: Cause your water heater to draw power only when you need hot water, saving you money on energy and prolongs the life of your unit

What's Included in a Water Heater Checkup

It is important to have your hot water system routinely inspected and maintained by a professional. This prevents unnecessary damage from shortening the lifespan of your unit.

Areas routinely checked during a water heater repair service call include:

  • Dip Tube
  • Gas Line
  • Water Heater Pan
  • Drip Pan
  • Expansion Tank
  • Burner Assembly (gas water heater)
  • Thermal Couple (gas water heater)
  • Thermostat (electric water heater)
  • Elements (electric water heaters)
  • Temperature/Pressure Relive Valve/T&P Valve (Gas & Electric)

Flushing the Hot Water Tank Is Vital

One of the most important elements in a water heater maintenance routine is flushing out the tank. Over time, sediment builds up inside the tank that will reduce the efficiency of your water heating system. Eventually, scale buildup can be so severe that it can make your water heater totally inoperable and end it's lifespan prematurely. If sediment is starting to build up inside your tank, you may hear a gurgling or popping sound.

Reasons You May Not Have Hot Water

Ever cry out to others in the home to not run faucets or not flush toilets since you want to take a HOT shower? We can make sure you have all the hot water your needs demand.

There are a few reasons you may not have hot water, such as:

  • Pilot light may have gone out
  • Sediment build up
  • Thermostat problems
  • Gas line leak
  • You have exceeded the capacity of your water heater tank

Residential Water Heater Repair Services

As with any mechanical system, water heaters will require occasional maintenance to work their best. Our repair specialists will complete a safety and efficiency review of your existing water heater and suggest the best course of action to ensure a ready flow of hot water for your home.
