Our local utility company (PG&E) says up to sixty percent of water heaters are replaced proactively before they leak or fail. Many water heaters are upgraded to a more efficient type of water heater. Currently, heat pump water heaters are popular, with up to $6200 in government incentives available.
If a tank water heater is between eight and eleven years old, it could be time to replace it. The warranty on the tank usually runs out after six years.
If your tank water heater is popping and gurgling (the sound of internal boiling due to excess mineral buildup), this could also be a sign that the tank may “pop”.
If the performance of your tankless water heater keeps deteriorating (temperature may vary greatly when showering), tankless water heaters will eventually wear out.
Extreme rust only in the hot water. A sure sign your tank is rusting away.
Leaking from the tank or the water connections is a very serious situation, possibly leading to very costly repairs.
We fix all types of water heating problems, but we do not advise attempting to fix a leaking tank. A leak is usually a sign of a frail, damaged, or corroded tank that is more than likely about to begin leaking somewhere else as well. In addition, repairing a leak often involves compromising your water heater’s energy efficiency and integrity to repair the leak. We always advise replacing a leaking water heater tank right away rather than repairing this difficult issue.
Water heating accounts for up to 20% of home energy usage. With utility prices rising, homes need efficient water heaters to keep utility bills affordable.

Our philosophy is simple, we always want to maintain equipment to give it the longest life possible. Next, we want to focus on repairing when something goes wrong. Then only as the last choice, we replace equipment when needed. That’s the John Owens Way.
