We need hot water both for comfort and to clean effectively. When your hot water tank suddenly stops working, you realize how much you rely on hot water. A good hot water tank can last anywhere between 10 to 15 years if properly cared for. Thankfully, replacing your hot water tank isn’t a big job and can be done in less than a day.
You might be tempted to try and tackle the job yourself, but unless you’re a trained professional, this seemingly easy job can suddenly turn dangerous and expensive if you don’t know what you’re doing. No matter what the project is, most of the time you will hit a snag or two. That’s reason enough to leave the job to the pros, but here are a few more reasons why you should trust your hot water tank installation in Vancouver to the specialists.
Trying to install your hot water tank after watching a YouTube video might save you money, but what is your time worth? After making the purchase, taking the tank home, unpacking it, watching the video, and collecting the tools you need, most of the day is already gone. Hot water tank installation professionals could have finished the job by then. Even the pros tackle the job as a team.

Most hot water tanks are heated by gas, so proper installation is vital. Even if you think you’ve done it properly, there is a huge risk that your gas lines may not be hooked up properly, especially if you have never attempted to work with gas lines before. If your gas lines are not sealed properly, you may highly possibly be getting a continuous flow of natural gas seeping into your home. One wrong move can spell disaster. What’s more, whatever room your hot water tank is in needs to be ventilated properly. Pressure can even build up in the tank if the job isn’t done right, leading to a potential explosion. Don’t put your family at risk and hire someone who’s done it before.
Sometimes, despite best efforts, mistakes can be made. But hot water tank installation specialists back their work. If something wasn’t done correctly or if further adjustments need to be made, it’s easy enough to have them come back and check the problem. If you do it yourself and mistakes were made, who is going to come and fix it? Most likely a specialist. So, you’ve not saved any money, and you certainly did not save any time. Skip this middle step and have the professionals come and do it right the first time.
The key to getting the most out of your hot water tank is regular maintenance. For services and hot water tank installation in Vancouver, Blue Sea Plumbing is your one-stop shop.
