Water Heaters

No more cold showers — level up with water heater pros!

San Antonio Plumbing Company

Water Heater Installation Services

The hot water tank is one of the most tried and true components of the modern home today. They’ve been reliably heating water since the late 1800s, and the technology has only gotten more refined with every year.

While they make our lives more convenient, they’re designed to be forgotten about, being tucked away in garages and closets. It isn’t until we find ourselves forced to take a hot shower as we rush to get ready for work that we truly appreciate or even think about how convenient water heaters make our lives.

When things go wrong and you have to think about your water heater for the first time in years while standing in a cold shower, DrainWorks will be here with decades of accumulated hard work and expertise that you can rely on.

San Antonio Water Heater Repairs

Water heaters use fairly simple technology. At the base of things, you have a water source, a tank, a heat source and its ignition components and the piping that holds everything together.

This simple design is not only efficient but also means that there aren’t many points of failure. Our team has seen every water heater problem and has a solution for them all. Some of the most common water issues our team encounters are:

  • Thermostat issues
  • Heating element problems
  • Water leaks
  • Faulty pressure release valves
  • Sediment removal
  • Anode rod replacement

Regardless of the severity of the water heater problem you’re facing, we guarantee that our team can find a solution for you. If your unit is beyond fixing, we’re the best source of quality water heater replacement you can find.

With our recommended AO Smith units, we’re proud to install products with second-to-none build quality installed with a level of expertise and care that’s impossible to match.

Hot Water Heater Maintenance

One of the best ways to avoid annoying repairs and premature replacements is by investing in and being diligent about your water heater maintenance.  We recommend that you have your water heater flushed at least once every six months to prevent buildup and to give your components the best chances to function optimally.

Fortunately, with our service membership, we provide an annual water heater inspection and flush so that you have one less thing to worry about when it comes to home maintenance!

Hot Water Heater Replacement

Even with perfect maintenance, nothing lasts forever. With the average hot water tank, you can expect about 10 to 15 years of service. If your tank is getting up there in years and you want to avoid the inconvenience associated with unexpectedly not having hot water, we recommend you replace your unit with one from AO Smith that’s guaranteed to stand the test of time.

San Antonio’s Hard Water Concerns

The water in San Antonio is especially hard, ranked as one of the most severe areas in the entire country for hard water minerals. With water regularly rated very hard, it’s a guarantee that your home is suffering from the long term effects of these minerals. This includes you water heater!

The buildup and deterioration of hard water over time can decrease the lifespan of your water heater. When considering how often to replace your water heater, speak with one of our specialists about the effect of hard water on your water heating system.

Have You Considered Tankless?

If you’re having to replace your water heater anyway, now is the best time to ask yourself if switching to a tankless water heater might be the right move for you.

Providing a space-efficient alternative to the standard tanked water heater, tankless heaters have the potential to offer your family an unlimited supply of hot water. With our offerings from Rinnia — the No. 1 tankless heater in the U.S. — you can rest assured that you’ll be getting the best in the industry.
