Tacoma Water Heater Repair

Never Run Out of Hot Water Again

No one likes cold showers, especially in the morning. An functional water heater is one of the most important pieces of equipment in your home. The water heater needs to provide hot water for your entire family on a daily basis, which means having enough hot water for baths, dishwashing, laundry, and more. Bob Larson Plumbing is always ready to provide fast water heater repair and diagnosis. We are also happy to help you choose the right water heater for your home. We can repair or install whatever you select. Your decision will mean hot water when you need it for years to come.

Water Heater Installation: Tank Storage vs. Tankless Water Heaters

If your current water heater is over eight years old, then it should be time for a new one. First, you’ll want to decide which type of water heater suits you: tank storage or tankless.

Here are some important facts that you should know about traditional storage water heaters:

  • With tank storage, water is kept and maintained at a warm temperature. When you turn on hot water anywhere in your home, it gets pulled directly from the tank, while cold water replaces it and gets heated again.
  • When purchasing, you must choose between gas or electric: this depends on the utility options in your home. Tank storage works the same whether you use gas or electric, but they have different benefits depending on your budget.
  • A tank heater must be the right size for your household: the larger the family, the larger the tank. Bob Larson Plumbing can help determine how much water you’ll need to stay hot during peak hours.
  • Once you’ve decided on the type and size of your new heater, it’s time for “out with the old, and in with the new.” We’ll haul away old heaters and install the new one in only a few hours. This can all be done with minimal disruption of your family’s routine.

If you are interested in a tankless water heater, the following information will help you decide: 

  • Instead of storing and maintaining water, tankless systems simply heat water as you use it, saving money in utility costs. While they’re more to purchase and install, in the long run, they’ll save you money.
  • If you have a smaller home or household which uses less water, a tankless water heater may be right for you.
  • When installing a tankless unit, electrical renovations may need to be added in each room with a water fixture, such as the kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms.
  • After removing your old tank, plumbing and electrical installation for your new tankless heater could take a day or a little longer. We’ll schedule the project, so it works right with you, leaving minimal interruption with your family’s routine.

  • Both my wife and I were very pleased.

    “We had Wayne from Bob Larson Plumbing come install a missing ice maker line last year and were so happy with his service that we had him back today to install a gas line for our new range. Fantastic, friendly service, absolutely reasonably priced considering the difficulty of the job. The piping install behind the stove area is clean and tidy and the guys picked up after themselves and were very pleasant to deal with, worked quickly and had a sense of humor. Handshakes all around. Both my wife and I were very pleased. I would hire them again without hesitation. Bob, Wayne and his helper were great!”

  • Bob and his company take pride in their work and have great customer service.

    “Our tankless water heater went out Thursday evening. We called Friday morning and they were booked til Tuesday. So Bob himself actually came and took care of us and at a fair price. We even got a 10% military discount! It is becoming rare these days to receive quality service and honest service. Bob and his company take pride in their work and have great customer service. We would highly recommend Bob Larson Plumbing!”

  • This is an excellent company that I am very happy to know and to do business with.

    “I've hired Bob Larson a few times, Kevin is my plumber, they do excellent work, find whatever way they can to help bring the costs down for you, Kevin had worked on the house before I lived there so he helped me plan my work based on the plumbing history of the house too. When I had a weekend emergency and couldn't afford an after-hours service call, he explained how I could manage it for the weekend without having to pay the after-hours fees and walked me through it by phone. This is an excellent company that I am very happy to know and to do business with. I already have a year membership with them and am very glad that I do.”

  • Their service was impeccable from the first phone call to the plumber (Robert).

    “I called Bob Larson Plumbing to get an estimate for a project at work and their service was impeccable from the first phone call to the plumber (Robert) and then to an estimate in my inbox not 15 minutes later. I highly recommend them!”

    Debby P.

  • They came out on time, were very professional, efficient and knowledgeable.

    “We had multiple leaky faucets both inside and outside of our house. I called Bob Larson's Plumbing on a recommendation from my daughter. They came out on time, were very professional, efficient and knowledgeable. They fixed all our leaks within half an hour and gave us advice on our water heater. I would definitely recommend these guys to anybody any day. They are awesome.”
