Q: What plumbing jobs are best left to a professional?

Q: My water heater is about 15 years old — should it be replaced?

A: Yes, you should consider replacing your water heater, because it has reached the end of its typical life span. Besides age, warning signs that your tank may be wearing out include dampness around the bottom of the tank, a pilot light going out, or popping sounds. Call us today and we can evaluate your tank and explain your replacement options.
