Monday, November 5th, 2018

sunny-plumbersIt doesn’t matter if you are on a pretty strict budget or if you have disposable income to spare. Replacing a water heater is nobody’s idea of a good, fun way to spend money. That doesn’t mean it’s not a necessary expense, though. Every water heater, regardless of make, model, and maintenance practices, has a limited lifespan. You’re going to need to replace yours eventually. When you do, you should think long and hard about what type of water heater you’ll choose as a replacement.

The Sunny Plumber Tucson has some tips about why you may want to skip the tank.
