- Cracks, rust and corrosion. Ack! Never try to fix a cracked hot water heater with do-it-yourself methods.

Call The Super Plumber - Plumbing and Drain Services squad immediately when you see significant rust or cracks in your water heating system.
How Long Will My Water Heater Last?
High-performance water heaters last for many years—but not forever. Tank and tankless water heating systems come in electric and gas models. Cared-for, well-maintained electric, tankless appliances can last up to 20 years. The average span of a gas-powered water heater is eight to 10 years, but this varies with make, model and maintenance level.
When it’s time to replace an old tank system, ask The Super Plumber - Plumbing and Drain Services about tankless water heater services. Tankless units are a highly efficient, long-lasting and compact alternative to traditional water heating systems, and their small footprint frees up precious space in your home.
