On average, traditional water heater tanks last 12 to 15 years. If your tank is more than 10 years old, you should watch it closely for signs of failure. Most tanks will give you some warning that they’re nearing the end of their life. Having the tank replaced before it goes out completely will ensure that you don’t have to deal with any cold showers. Warning signs include:
Some pipe leaks are readily visible. There will be standing water where it doesn’t belong, or you’ll see a steady stream of water in the vicinity. However, other signs of water leaks aren’t as obvious. These are the signs of a hidden leak, so you should watch for them diligently and call for service as soon as possible. These include:
Clogged drains are a major hassle, and we’re happy to clean the problem out for you. However, the best way to avoid the problem is to take care of your drains. The clogs and buildup come from putting things down the drains that are unable to move through the lines quickly. Examples include cooking grease, garbage, large amounts of food, cardboard, and coffee grounds. In addition to being careful about what goes down the drains, you can also prevent things from accidentally going down with the water by using drain screens. Run the hot water through your kitchen sink after you use it. If the water starts to drain slowly, you can try to clear it using a plunger. Never use chemicals available at the local store as they can actually damage your drains. If plunging doesn’t work, we’re happy to take care of the problem for you.

Angelo from Caccia repaired a gas line leak under our house today. He was very knowledgeable, personable and took the time to explain our plumbing needs as well as other observations about our home. I also appreciated that he explained the entire process of this repair from beginning to end, shared how and why he was conducting pressure tests and provided the results of the pressure test to me. I was surprised to learn we were losing 4 lbs of pressure per minute!
Caccia's price was a little higher than another quote I got, but the work was thorough, honest and I can sleep well tonight knowing the leak was repaired same day. Angelo basically treated our home like his own.
Update 2016. Still LOVE these guys. Have you ever hugged a plumber? I did today. We had a major clog in our sewage pipes that two other plumbers couldn't clear. These guys cleared it in an hour and install a new toilet. Tyrone and Ruben were so considerate, kept me updated on the progress and just did a great job. Very professional but personable. Thank you Caccia!
