HOT WATER TANKS

You may need a new hot water tank or simply a repair on your existing tank. Miller Plumbing & Drainage will assess the condition of your tank and give you expert advice on repairs or a replacement if necessary, along with suggestions to suit your needs and budget. We install and repair all types and models of hot water tanks.

New water heaters are very energy efficient and will save you money over the course of a few years.

If you see a leakage occurring at the base of your hot water tank, you will want to have it dealt with as soon as possible to avoid any flood damage to your home.

We will not only install your new gas or electric tank, but will also remove your old unit and take it to be recycled.

The cost of installation and replacement of hot water tank depends on various factors:

  • Type of water heater—electrical, gas, and hybrid
  • Size of the water heater
  • The cost of the unit
  • Labour from a licensed plumber
  • Materials required for installation
  • Permits for installation
  • Removal of your old unit

The average lifespan of a hot water tank is between 8 to 10 years. If your hot water tank is more than 10 years old, it is time to consider replacement options. However, with proper maintenance, your hot water heater can last for many years.

The most common reason for a noisy water heater is sediment accumulation at the bottom of the hot water tank. The noise is caused by the bubbling of hot water up through the sediment.

Do not ignore this issue. Contact our expert plumbers right away. They will come to your property in Burnaby to check the condition of your hot water tank and give you expert advice on repairs or a replacement.

On average, replacing a hot water tank takes 2 to 3 hours. This time frame is under normal conditions and with no unexpected issues occurring.

It takes around 45 to 60 minutes to properly disconnect, drain, and remove your old water heater tank. Positioning the new unit takes around 30 minutes, and securing the new connection points takes another 45 to 60 minutes.
