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.

This is the 1st time that I used James Caccia Plumbing and it will not be the last. I called early Monday morning to schedule an appointment for a clogged drain. They were able to provide me service the same day. They gave me a window from 2-4pm for service and they said that they would call if they could come earlier. They called 30 minutes prior to arrival for a 2pm start. My technician's name was Denver and he was fantastic. He gave a free estimate and clearly explained the scope of work prior to service. When the job was bigger than anticipated and he needed assistance with equipment, the office was able to quickly respond and send another tech for assistance so I did not have to re-schedule. Daniel was the 2nd tech and he was also great. They worked their butts off and were positive, friendly, and very focused. They did a great job and were thorough checking that everything was working properly before they left. Their work area was also cleaner that it was when they started. Thanks for a great service experience.
