Portobello Plumber Water Heater Installation and Repair
Your hot water heater is the heart of your plumbing system. Common problems are that heating elements fail or pilot lights go out. Depending on the water quality in your area, you can have sediment and bacteria buildup, cracks in the tank liner or breaker failure. Regular maintenance will save you money in the long run.
A leaky water heater is a signal that your tank could use a cleaning. At Halifaxtoiletplumber.com, our Portobello Plumber pros will help you with repair, installation or replacement of your clogged, leaking or broken hot water unit.
Types of Water Heaters
The most common type of water heater is the Storage Tank model. They have been around for a hundred or more years and have an insulated tank where water is heated and stored until it’s needed. They’re available in electric, liquid propane (LP) and natural gas models. Natural gas and LP water heaters normally use less energy and are less expensive to operate than electric models of the same size.
Storage tank water heaters are classified by the amount of water they hold in gallons. You should also pay attention to the “Recovery Rate.” This tells you the number of gallons of water that the unit can heat in an hour. The greater your demand for hot water, the higher recovery rate you need. A tank’s cited energy efficiency and yearly operating costs can be found on the “EnergyGuide” label on the tank.
Tankless or On-demand Water heater
Tankless or On-demand water heaters do not store hot water. (Free Guide) They heat water as it passes through a series of coils in the unit. Since the unit only heats water as you use it, a tankless heater is usually more energy-efficient than a traditional storage tank unit. They’re available in electric, liquid propane and natural gas models. Most tankless units can provide up to 3.5 gallons of heated water per minute. These units are a good choice id demand does not call for hot water at more than two points in the household at a time.

As Mr. Samuel Oscar Blanc, inventor of the Roto-Rooter learned, necessity is the mother of invention. It was named a “Rooter” because the device was designed to drill through tree roots which had grown through and blocked clay sewage pipes. The first “Rooter” was fashioned from steel wire, an old washing motor and roller skate wheels.
Around the world, Rooter services are performed on a daily basis. Wherever there is a clogged pipe, they are used to drain grey water. If you have a drainage emergency, then stop reading this and Call Us Immediately. We will rush over and root out your plumbing problem.

Portobello Plumber Sump Pump installation
Sump pumps move water away from your foundation to keep from it flooding. Since water always finds it way to the lowest point, that is also where you will find the sump pump. There are two types.
- A Pedestal pump has a motor atop a pedestal, hence the name, with a hose that draws the water out of the hole.
- A Submersible pump sits in the water, in the hole and pumps the water to a drain.
For many homeowners sump pumps are considered a DIY project. You may want to consider that our work comes with our Guarantee. It provides comfort, and comes with a good night’s sleep. Now that’s worth more than anything. 😉
