Life Expectancy of a Water Heater
Unfortunately, your water heater will not last forever – although it can last for a fairly long time. While experts can’t give you an exact timeline of when you will need to replace your unit, our technicians can give you some estimates. While every make and model is different, most electric units will last between 10 to 20 years. The amount of care and maintenance the system receives, and the quality of your water, can impact that timeline. Gas-powered units might not last quite as long as electric systems.
How To Prevent Clogged Pipes
A clogged drain can be a nuisance in your house. From stinky drains to forcing you to shower in standing water, it’s important to avoid getting blockages in your system. Some ways you can prevent these problems from occurring include:
- Even if you have a garbage disposal, avoid putting food scraps down the drain.
- Never put grease down the drain.
- Put a screen over the bathroom drains to collect hair before it goes down the drain.
- Only flush sewage and toilet paper down the toilet.
- Schedule regular professional drain cleanings.

Common Causes of Clogged Toilets
If not repaired quickly – or correctly – a clogged toilet can lead to a plumbing emergency. These messy and potentially risky clogs can be caused by:
- Hard water. This can cause your toilet to malfunction.
- Foreign objects. Your kids can throw and flush toys down the toilet.
- Worn pipes. These can prevent your unit from functioning correctly.
- Too much toilet paper. Using too much toilet paper can cause a blockage.
