It can be challenging to know when you should replace or repair a plumbing installation or appliance. After all, replacing is pricier than repairing.

Our thoroughness is one of the reasons our customers trust us with plumbing replacement and repairs. New Braunfels, TX residents and commercial property owners know they can trust us to guide them towards the best decision for them, not for our bottom line.
UNDERSTANDING HOW DIFFERENT WATER HEATERS WORK
Your water heater is an essential part of your home. When it fails, you shouldn’t hesitate to give 1st Call Plumbing, Heating & Air a call. If the tank bursts, then you’ll immediately recognize it as an emergency. But more subtle issues are also pressing and can lead to more severe consequences.
We provide both repairs and replacement of tankless and traditional water heaters and understand how to guide our customers toward the right choice. You should forgo repairs in favor of replacement if:
- The water heater is between 8 and 12 years old, which is the lifespan of the average water heater. If you don’t know the age of your unit, you can use the serial number found on the water heater to search the manufacturer’s website to gain this information.
- You’re experiencing a rusty, orange-brown water supply, or you notice a rusty heater inlet valve. In the case of the inlet valve, it’s a sign rust is inside the water tank, which is a severe issue
- There are unusual and loud noises coming from your water heater. While sometimes this is caused by an easily-repaired issue, more often than not, you will need to replace the unit.
- The water heater tank is leaking or has burst. There’s no more evident sign it’s time to replace your unit than this.
WHEN TO REPLACE YOUR WATER SOFTENER
We also provide repairs and replacement to water softener. Just as your water heater is a crucial component of your home, so is your water softeners. They need to be regularly maintained. For instance, salt levels play a significant role in how well the water softener performs. If the levels aren’t where they should be, then you could experience problems.
If you are experiencing problems, then our technicians will help you determine whether a replacement is required or if repairs will solve the problem. We can repair many issues, but it is almost always better to replace your unit if it is over a decade old. 1st Call Plumbing, Heating & Air helps you figure out where to go from there.
