Water Heater Repairs

Most water heaters that are not leaking from the tank can be repaired. Usually water heaters last 7 - 12 years in Tucson but we have seen 3 year old heaters start leaking.  

Water Heater Flush


You are supposed to drain your water heater every 6 months according to manufactures.  Most people do not do this and they usually start to fill up with lime in the bottom making them less efficient, and corrosive to the tank.

Anode Rod Replacement


Every water heater has a hidden anode rod within the tank. This rod prevents the tank from deteriorating.  Anode rods usually last a couple years before they are exhausted.

T & P Replacement


A temperature and pressure relief valve serves to protect against a water heater system malfunction.  If the pressure or temperature get too high is relieves it.  When these start to leak usually they need to be replaced.

Electric Water Heater Element Replacement


Electric water heaters have heating elements inside them (usually 2).  If an element goes out either you wont have any hot water or not as much hot water was normal.  Water heater elements are usually easy to replace.

Gas Control Replacement


Propane Gas Water Heaters

Most mobile homes use propane as a fuel source for the water heating.  These water heaters usually cost a bit more because of their rarity.  Prices below install materials and labor for a standard installation.

30 gallon propane


40 gallon propane


50 gallon propane


Other Water Heater Charges

Some water heater installs require additional parts, labor or fees. These fees are in addition to the water heater installed prices above.

City Permits*


For us to purchase a permit to install your new water heater.

Water Heater Flexes (2)


These are included with any new water heater we supply.

Water Heater Drain Pan


These are round pans that you can put your water heater within to help protect from flooding damage if it leaks again.

Unusual Access


If it is hard to get your water heater out of a tricky location, or if you need to remove something (like a furnace) we do change extra at our hourly rate for this extra work.

Gas controls rarely go out on a water heater.  If you can't light the pilot usually it's a bad thermocouple.  We can replace the gas control if it does go out.  This price is for older style water heater gas controls.  Newer pilot-less water heaters may use a gas control that can be more.  

*About Permits

The City of Tucson wants you to get a permit on every job.  In most cases, we install new water heaters and leave it up the the homeowner to obtain the needed permit, if they wish.  A permit can be obtained by the home owner or the contractor.  Getting a permit can be a time consuming proposition as you have to go down to the city to get one, and you will have to schedule the inspection on their time.  They do give you a window of time to wait at home for them  (1 full day).


Warning:  Not all contractors are created equal.  Arico Plumbing Inc, will do work to code and it might be safe for you to obtain a permit where you feel it prudent. Also, if you do not obtain a permit and you later get a permit for other work (like a new furnace) and the inspector sees you might have a new water heater, he will require you to get a permit on the new water heater as well.
