What Your Neighbors Say About Us

"We have used High Country Plumbing twice since we recently moved into an existing home in Windsor. They were able to come replace our water heater and 3 toilets within 1 week after they were contacted. They worked quickly and efficiently and did a nice clean installation. We were so pleased with their work ethic that we again had them come back to install a new kitchen granite sink, faucet, and disposal."  Dennis E.

"I am really happy with High Country Plumbing! Steve and Josh are both master plumbers, and when my water heater died, they came out the next day with a new Rheems 50 gallon water heater. They are fast, friendly, courteous and they clean up after themselves. They took my old water heater away, too. I thought they were very reasonably priced. Would recommend them to anyone!" C.G.

Water Heater Installation

 

Sometimes, you simply need a water heater installation. Recently, we got a call from a customer whose existing water heater had quit working.  We were out there within 24 hours, with a brand new Rheem 50 gal. hot water heater, and in only a couple hours had the old water heater gone and the new hot water heater installed.

The Old Water Heater

 

This water heater was at least 10 years old. It had been struggling for a number of months, often shutting down without warning. The homeowner kept relighting the pilot every time it quit, hoping to extend the life of the water heater. But sooner or later, struggling water heaters give up.

There are several reasons why water heaters quit. The heating element in an electric water heater may fail. Or a pilot light in a gas heater won’t stay lit. Older water heaters often get rusty inside, too, and flakes of rust and sediment from the water itself may fall on the pilot light, causing it to fail repeatedly.

Sometimes water heaters can be repaired, but if the unit is more than 10 years old, it's generally more economical, in the long-term, to replace it.

The Installation Process

Of course, we start by removing the old water heater. This means draining all the water from the non-functioning heater and then removing the gas line. Once the water heater is completely detached from all service lines, we carry it off to our truck. You don't have to worry about disposal.

The New Water Heater

bringing in new water heaterFor this installation, we replaced the old 40 gallon hot water heater with a new 50 gallon Rheem water heater.  A 40 gallon tank is the minimum suggested for a household of only one to two people. A 50 gallon tank will comfortably serve up to three or four household members. If your family uses an average amount of water for dishwashing, showering, and laundry, these size tanks will suit you. For families that use a great deal of hot water (think long showers for several people before school or work), choose a larger water heater to be sure you don't run out.

The Rheem water heaters come carefully packed in heavy cartons, with protective plastic film over the unit itself to avoid scratches and other surface damage. We wear protective booties to help keep your floors clean, and of course, we clean up any trash completely after every installation.

Installing The New Water Heater

Unless it is damaged, we can continue to use your existing water heater floor pan. The new heater is set carefully on the pan, and the we determine whether we want to use flexible or rigid copper piping for the water. In this installation, rigid pipe was the way to go. Master Plumber Josh Fisher soldered the copper pipes, and then he turned on the water supply to fill the newly installed water heater. As soon as the tank was filled with its first 50 gallons of water, he moved on to the next step, which was to attach the new gas line.

Did you know we also install gas lines for other home uses, from outdoor gas grills to indoor gas fireplaces and appliances?

Final Steps

Once that's completed, he lights the pilot and checks that everything is operating smoothly. We also test to be sure that you have hot water running from you taps. With your new hot water heater fully installed and running, you won't have to worry about cold showers anymore!
